Elijah Mitchell News

  • 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.

    Rank Ranker Date
    59 Bradley Myers 09/16

    comment Anytime you rank a 49er RB you better have an emergency plan in place given Shannahan's history. He loves Mitchell, though, and Mitchell fits what they want to do perfectly. I'm taking a flier on him to take another step forward as the lead runner in San Francisco.

    comment Can he stay healthy? I doubt it. Edit: Nope

    94 Rob Willette 09/27

    comment I do believe Mitchell is #Good, but a two-month absence due to injury adds to a long list of maladies which have impacted him. I am concerned about his long-term viability. The scheme alone keeps him afloat in dynasty rankings.
