Tyrion Davis-Price Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

49ers RB Christian McCaffrey (calf) will not play vs. the Rams this weekend, HC Kyle Shanahan confirmed Monday. Shanahan called McCaffrey's injury a "mild calf strain." It's unclear if CMC would be able to play if this game meant something to San Francisco, but he was never going to suit up with the NFC's No. 1 seed clinched. He'll get three total weeks to heal up before the 49ers' playoff opener. We'll see about the team's backfield plans this weekend. RBs Elijah Mitchell and Jordan Mason are on the active roster, with RB Ty Davis-Price on the practice squad.

49ers RB Christian McCaffrey (oblique) is active for tonight's game vs. the Vikings. He got in just one limited practice this week and didn't take a hit, ESPN's Adam Schefter said on The Pat McAfee Show earlier today. There's elevated risk with CMC tonight, although there's been no report on his snaps being limited. RB Ty Davis-Price is a healthy scratch, leaving RBs Elijah Mitchell and Jordan Mason behind McCaffrey.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (knee) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Cardinals. RBs Jordan Mason and Ty Davis-Price are active to spell workhorse RB Christian McCaffrey.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (knee) is not expected to play vs. the Cardinals today, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. Mitchell injured his knee in Thursday's practice and did not practice on Friday. His absence could mean an extra touch or two for RB Christian McCaffrey. Jordan Mason and Ty Davis-Price figure to be active behind CMC.

49ers RB Jordan Mason “appears” to be the favorite for the RB3 role, per beat writer Jack Hammer. Mason's main competition is 2022 Round 3 pick Tyrion Davis-Price. “The second-year back is a more fluid runner and does a better job of setting up his blockers than Ty Davis-Price,” Hammer writes. “He has also looked much better in pass protection, squaring up defenders consistently.” We’ll see what the rest of the preseason brings. But the RB3 role in San Francisco figures to have some fantasy relevance this season — especially with No. 2 Elijah Mitchell already battling an adductor injury.

ESPN’s Nick Wagoner believes 49ers RB Tyrion Davis-Price looks “quicker and leaner.” The 22-year-old is likely headed for the RB3/4 role in San Francisco. But recall that the team selected him in Round 3 just one year ago. He posted only 99 yards (on 34 carries) as a rookie.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (groin) is inactive for today's NFC Championship game vs. the Eagles. RB Tevin Coleman was elevated from the practice squad on Saturday and is active for this one. He joins Christian McCaffrey and Jordan Mason in San Francisco's backfield. RB Ty Davis-Price is a healthy scratch. Check out the updated projections for the 49ers backfield.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (knee) has been designated to return from IR. He's been out since spraining an MCL in Week 12. We'll see if he's ready to play vs. the Cardinals this weekend. A healthy Mitchell figures to slide back in as San Francisco's #2 RB behind Christian McCaffrey.

Niners RB Christian McCaffrey managed just 46 yards on his 15 carries (3.1 per rush) in Saturday's win over the Commanders. He added just 2 receptions for 12 yards. That matched McCaffrey's low for receptions on the season, and his 2 targets set a new season low. RB Tyrion Davis-Price jumped in for 9 carries and 30 yards as the only other RB to see any touches. McCaffrey and the 49ers get a high-upside matchup with the Raiders in Week 17.

49ers RB Tevin Coleman was not elevated from the practice squad for Sunday's game vs. the Dolphins. That leaves rookie RBs Ty Davis-Price and Jordan Mason behind Christian McCaffrey. We'll see how work is divvied between them, but neither is a reliable Week 13 fantasy play. It's certainly possible that McCaffrey just takes on a bunch of the work RB Elijah Mitchell leaves behind.

49ers RB Christian McCaffrey (knee) is not listed on the final injury report. He went from no practice on Wednesday to limited Thursday to full participation on Friday. McCaffrey is believed to be dealing with knee tendinitis, but we’re not expecting it to significantly impact him in Sunday’s game vs. the Dolphins. RB Elijah Mitchell is expected to miss the rest of the regular season with his MCL sprain, leaving some combination of Ty Davis-Price, Jordan Mason and Tevin Coleman behind McCaffrey.

The Athletic's Matt Barrows suggests that 49ers RB Tevin Coleman could help replace RB Elijah Mitchell going forward. Coleman carried 12 times across Weeks 5 and 6 but has been on the practice squad since. We'll see if he's elevated ahead of Week 13 -- and then who's active behind RB Christian McCaffrey for Sunday's game vs. the Dolphins. Coleman, Jordan Mason and Ty Davis-Price are all worth stashing in deeper fantasy leagues.

The 49ers stayed with their stated plan for RB Christian McCaffrey in his 1st game with the team Sunday. He played 22 total snaps -- 28% of the team total -- logging 8 carries for 38 yards and 2 catches for 24 yards (on 2 targets). Jeff Wilson Jr. led the backfield in playing time and ran for 54 yards on 7 carries. He matched McCaffrey in routes but went without a catch on just 1 target. Rookie Tyrion Davis-Price mixed in for 2 carries (4 yards) and 2 targets (0 catches). We'd bet on a big shift toward McCaffrey for the Week 8 visit to the Rams. Don't plan on using Wilson in your fantasy football lineups.

Niners RB Jeff Wilson Jr. carried just 7 times for 25 yards and went catchless on 1 target in Sunday's 14-point loss to the Falcons. The game found Tyrion Davis-Price active, but he didn't draw a touch. Tevin Coleman carried 4 times for 3 yards.

49ers RB Ty Davis-Price (ankle) is not listed on the final injury report and will be available for Sunday’s game vs. the Falcons. Assuming the rookie is active, he figures to be 3rd on the depth chart behind RBs Jeff Wilson and Tevin Coleman.

49ers RB Ty Davis-Price (ankle) put in a full practice on Wednesday. It looks like he's ready to return from his Week 2 high-ankle sprain. The rookie figures to slot in 3rd on the depth chart for now, behind RBs Jeff Wilson and Tevin Coleman.

49ers RB Ty Davis-Price (ankle), as expected, has been ruled out for Monday night's game vs. the Rams. RB Jeff Wilson played 73% of the offensive snaps, handled 12 of 13 RB carries and saw 3 targets last week and figures to play a similar role on Monday night.

49ers RB Ty Davis-Price (ankle) is out for Sunday night’s game vs. the Broncos. He figures to miss multiple weeks with his high-ankle sprain. Jeff Wilson will lead the backfield in Denver, with Jordan Mason and Marlon Mack behind him. We’ll see if RB Tevin Coleman is elevated from the practice squad before kickoff.
