Mitchell out-carries McCaffrey in return

RB Elijah Mitchell led the 49ers in carries Sunday night in his 1st action since a Week 1 knee injury. He carried 18 times for 89 yards, beating Christian McCaffrey by 4 attempts and 51 yards. McCaffrey claimed the lone TD between them and caught 4 of 6 targets to add 39 yards. Mitchell drew 2 targets and caught 1 for a loss of a yard. We'll see about this backfield plan going forward. But the even split in Mitchell's return sets McCaffrey up as a "sell-high" candidate in redraft leagues.
