Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
6/22: 100% healthy, running 22 MPH, RB6 on torn PCL all year.. a 4th round STEAL!5/2: Oddly, 49ers spent limited draft capital adding LSU's Tyrion Davis-Price as the 5th RB off board. Shouldn't be a HUGE concern... but still worth considering
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
Deserves credit for toughing out nagging injuries for RB7 finish in 2021, but hard to be overly bullish with all that mileage and an emerging Tony Pollard behind himShowed RB1 upside leading one of most well-oiled run games in the NFL, but also piled up injuries (knee, finger, concussion) - are you glass half full or half empty?
Derek Brown
FantasyPros
Ezekiel Elliott is coming off a down season where some of this could be related to the fact he dealt with a partially torn PCL for much of the season (since Week 4). The spliced-up workload and his declining effectiveness could result from the injury or his advancing age and the toll that the NFL has taken on him. Elliott has amassed 1,938 touches (22 per game) over his six-year career, never handling less than 268 touches in any season. Elliott should be viewed as an RB2 in many formats that could slowly dissolve into a high-end RB3 if Tony Pollard gets more run in 2022.Elijah Mitchell ran away with the job last season en route to finishing as the RB14 in fantasy points per game. He was third in opportunity share, but his underlying rushing metrics were a lackluster ball of meh. He was 36th in juke rate, 30th in breakaway run rate, and 34th in yards created per touch. With his 7.0% target share and 25th ranking in route participation, he doesn't have the pass game usage to save him if the rushing volume and efficiency aren't there. It's still possible that the 49ers roll it back in 2022 with him as the primary rusher, though, as long as he doesn't face plant in camp.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Elliott is not as efficient as he used to be, for the second straight year he was under 5.0 yards per touch at 4.5. However, he did have 1,199 yards from scrimmage and 12 touchdowns in the fantasy season. He feels like more of a RB2 than RB1, but at 27 years old, he should have another solid year in him.Mitchell had 1,015 yards from scrimmage and 6 touchdowns in just 10 fantasy games. Durability and a crowded backfield are concerns, but Mitchell appears to be the lead back on one of the best rushing offenses in the NFL and he should be a solid RB2 with upside if he can stay healthy in 2022.
