Elijah Mitchell News

  • Elijah Mitchell on IR again · Nov 29, 2022

    The 49ers are expected to place running back Elijah Mitchell on IR following another knee injury

    Mitchell injured his knee, yet again, in week 12 and will miss 6-8 weeks, effectively ending his fantasy season. Mitchell has shown promise when healthy but those moments have been fleeting as the 2021 sixth-round player continues to log time on the trainer's table. Recently a rising young back, his persistent injury issues continue to impact his falling RB38 status on DLF.

  • Elijah Mitchell loses value · Oct 21, 2022

    Following the 49ers acquisition of running back Christian McCaffrey from the Panthers, running back Elijah Mitchell's future is uncertain

    "Uncertain" may be putting it lightly after the injury-prone back was already facing competition for the starting the job from the surging Jeff Wilson who has looked capable as the primary option. Now, both Mitchell and Wilson are facing a significantly reduced workload following the trade. Mitchell is likely to rejoin the team in the weeks to come and it's anyone's guess how the depth chart will play out behind McCaffrey. Elijah Mitchell is found as DLF's RB31 and his future as a starter now likely rests in another uniform.

  • Elijah Mitchell injures knee · Sep 12, 2022

    49ers sophomore running back Elijah Mitchell injured his knee in week one and will miss upwards of two months.

    Mitchell's hype train lasted all of six carries. Before exiting, Mitchell worked as the primary ball carrier and tallied 41 yards. As it stands, Mitchell returns to the trainer's table and will miss valuable time while displaying his inability to remain healthy and on the field. His absence will give Jeff Wilson time atop the depth chart with every opportunity to become the primary ball carrier when Mitchell returns. Mitchell is found as DLF's RB24 and could see a modest drop following his latest injury.

  • Elijah Mitchell nursing hamstring · Aug 13, 2022

    49ers sophomore running back Elijah Mitchell is nursing a hamstring injury and likely won't see action in the preseason

    It's yet another new injury for Mitchell who carries high expectations from the dynasty community. At the same time, Mitchell has shown less durability than desired and his RB22 status won't rise until he shows he can remain off the trainer's table. Following knee surgery earlier this year, the hope was for Mitchell to build momentum into the regular season, but now the hamstring injury fuels further concern about the team's deployment of a true RBBC approach. Mitchell has fine upside should he handle the lion's share of the touches but the team has a deep stable of runners and appears ready to use them all.

  • Elijah Mitchell clear-cut top option · Aug 6, 2022

    49ers running back Elijah Mitchell remains the top option at running back

    The sixth-round 2021 rookie was the surprise of the season at the position though injuries limited Mitchell to only 11 games. Health concerns remain on the lips of 49ers coaching staff and beat writers but all remain optimistic he'll remain off the trainer's table in 2022. He's not a high volume producer as a receiver but isn't without skills in that regard. In a Kyle Shanahan offense, multiple backs will factor but it's Mitchell who projects to be the impact producer as long as his health holds. The dynasty community is clearly in wait-and-see mode as evidenced by Mitchell's RB22 status, back-end RB2 with upside given his youth. His current ranking makes for an intriguing risk-on acquisition.
