Brandon Funston
The Athletic
Showed 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?Returning from lost season to ACL injury, worth a reminder that he averaged 6 YPC and rushed for 9 TDs in 134 carries as a rookie in 2020
Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
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 considering6/14: Rumblings he'll start year "slow" and have reps "managed" gives him a considerable downgrade / added risk, even w/ stretch-run winning upside 5/15: Big draft day winner w/ minimal competition added + line beefed up + moves suggesting a run-obsessed 2022 attack
Andrew Erickson
FantasyPros
 Running backs tied to a mobile quarterback are often short-changed when it comes to the passing game. For as well as J.K. Dobbins performed in fantasy football from Weeks 11-17 in full PPR (RB11) during the 2020 season, guess who outscored him... J.D. McKissic. That's because McKissic caught 37 passes versus Dobbins' three. Guys like Derrick Henry can overcome the lack of receiving work because they are entrenched bell cows, but that's not the case with Dobbins in Baltimore with Gus Edwards also in the mix. Dobbins only slightly out-touched Edwards 86-74 down the stretch in 2020. It would be pure ignorance to assume that Dobbins will take over the backfield considering Edwards has been excellent with every opportunity he has received. Dobbins also ran extremely hot when it came to scoring touchdowns, scoring at least one TD in every game from Week 11 on. His nine total rushing TDs ranked 12th in the league and nearly doubled his expected output (5.5, 30th) - the sixth-highest difference at the position. Drafters have to understand that to invest in Dobbins as a late third-rounder or fourth-rounder (RB20, 50th overall ADP) he needs to run hot in the TD category coming off the season-ending ACL injury. They also should expect zero-to-little pass-game work with Jackson's tendency to not check down along with the additions of receiving backs, veteran Mike Davis and rookie Tyler Badie.
Derek Brown
FantasyPros
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
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.The only solid development in Dobbins tearing his ACL in the final preseason game of 2021 is that he will likely have enough time to rehab and be ready for the start of 2022. Dobbins will be looking to build on a 2020 rookie campaign that saw him tally 925 yards from scrimmage and 9 touchdowns.
