Week 5
Mitchell returned in this game and was given the keys to the backfield. He saw 9 carries for 43 yards. He also caught both of his targets for 19 yards. Trey Sermon saw just 1 touch in this game and it came late in the 4th quarter.

Going forward, Mitchell is clearly the guy assuming he's healthy. HC Kyle Shannahan likes his versatility and the Raheem Mostert comparisons have been thrown out by commentators and analysts alike.

This offense should find some continuity over the next few weeks. Assuming Mitchell sees the volume in games where they lean more on the run, he should remain a viable option the rest of the way.
Week 2
In Week 1, a 38-yard TD run probably inflated Mitchell’s performance beyond how we should have perceived it.

In Week 2, though, the lack of such a run probably made things look worse than they actually were.

First of all, Mitchell narrowly missed scoring for the 2nd straight game. He punched in a 1-yard TD early in the 4th quarter, but replay determined his knee hit the ground 1st. Jimmy Garoppolo vulture the TD with a sneak on the next play.

The biggest issue for Mitchell in Week 2 was how quickly he met Eagles defenders. The rookie back dipped from 1.63 yards before contact per attempt in the opener to just 0.47 in Week 2, according to Pro Football Focus. The latter number ranked just 53rd among all 74 RBs who logged a carry in Week 2.

The positive: Mitchell handled 70.8% of San Francisco’s HB carries, despite leaving briefly in the 2nd half with a shoulder issue. He also watched JaMycal Hasty go down with a high-ankle sprain and Trey Sermon suffer a concussion (on his only touch).

So don’t fret if you paid up for Mitchell on waivers and then didn’t get much immediate return. He’s the lead back in what has ranked among the league’s most successful rushing attacks in recent years.

Mitchell will likely hit the next 3 weeks in fantasy starter territory, ahead of the Week 6 bye.
Week 1
With Trey Sermon inactive as a healthy scratch, once Raheem Mostert left the game in the 1st quarter with a knee injury, the 49ers’ rookie took full advantage of his opportunity to flash his exceptional pro-day numbers at the expense of the Lions. Due to him consistently producing positive yardage on just about every run while helping the team roll out to a massive lead, he relegated JaMycal Hasty to just a single carry.

Mitchell has a skill set that can make him a league winner in the Kyle Shanahan run system. Actually, if he is simply given enough time to ‘steal’ the job, that may be enough. Not only did he run a 4.33 40-yard-dash, his explosiveness was 90th percentile, and his agility tested in the 62nd percentile. At 5’10, 200 pounds, he could get a reasonable workload, and regardless of how things shake out, he should be rostered in all fantasy leagues.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (shoulder) is not listed on the final injury report. He practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday. Mitchell was operating as San Francisco's lead back before the Week 2 shoulder injury. RB Trey Sermon has been decent in his place the last 2 weeks, so it's unclear exactly how work will be divvied in Sunday's game vs. the Cardinals. Our guess is that Mitchell takes back over the lead role, but both he and Sermon look like risk/reward RB3 plays unless we hear more before kickoff.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (shoulder) remained limited on Thursday. He was limited in all 3 practices last week before missing the Seahawks game. It looks like the rookie still hasn't been cleared for contact. Check back tomorrow for another update on Mitchell's status for Sunday's game vs. Arizona.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (shoulder) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Seahawks. That should again leave RB Trey Sermon in a lead -- but not featured -- role. The rookie played 59% of San Francisco's offensive snaps and tallied 10 carries and 3 targets last week. We’re projecting similar usage today.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (shoulder) will not play vs. the Seahawks today, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Mitchell put in 3 limited practices this week but is still dealing with a lot of pain. RB Trey Sermon got just-ok usage with Mitchell out last week, playing 59% of San Francisco's offensive snaps and tallying 10 carries and 3 targets. See where Sermon sits in the updated RB Rankings.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (shoulder) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Seahawks. He was limited in practice all week. Mitchell's availability on Sunday will come down to pain tolerance, according to ESPN's Nick Wagoner. Mitchell will be a risk/reward RB3 play if active this weekend. If not, Trey Sermon will again be in play as a RB3 or flex.
