Jordan Mason steps up in McCaffrey's absence

By Jared Smola | Updated on Sun, 15 Oct 2023, 6:04 PM EDT

Jordan Mason, not Elijah Mitchell, took over as San Francisco’s lead back after Christian McCaffrey exited Sunday's loss to the Browns with an oblique injury. Mason finished with 27 yards and a score on five carries to Mitchell’s two carries for minus-three yards. We’re not ready to say just yet that Mason would be the better fantasy play if CMC misses more time, but he certainly deserves to be rostered in most fantasy leagues. Mason has averaged 5.9 yards across 64 carries over the past two seasons.
