Elijah Mitchell (knee) placed on IR

The 49ers have placed RB Elijah Mitchell on injured reserve.

Fantasy Impact

This comes as no surprise as Mitchell is expected to miss six to eight weeks with an MCL injury. Christian McCaffrey will remain the clear lead back in the 49ers backfield. It is not clear who will take over the No. 2 role between Jordan Mason and Tyrion Davis-Price.

Elijah Mitchell (MCL sprain) expected to miss 6-8 weeks

Elijah Mitchell is expected to miss 6-8 weeks due to a MCL sprain.

Fantasy Impact

This is a similar timetable to when Mitchell suffered a MCL injury in Week 1 and missed a couple of months. With Jeff Wilson Jr. traded, it'll likely be Jordan Mason complimenting Christian McCaffrey in the 49ers backfield. Mason isn't too fantasy relevant though.

Elijah Mitchell has possible MCL sprain

According to head coach Kyle Shanahan, RB Elijah Mitchell has a possible MCL sprain and will undergo further evaluation.

Fantasy Impact

Mitchell left the game in the third quarter after rushing seven times for 35 yards and catching two passes for eight yards. Fantasy managers who roster him will want to keep an eye on injury updates. Jordan Mason would be next on the depth chart, though if Deebo Samuel is healthy, the 49ers' backfield remains messy beyond Christian McCaffrey.

Elijah Mitchell (knee) out for remainder of Week 12

Elijah Mitchell left with a knee injury and has been ruled out for the rest of the 49ers' game against the Saints.

Fantasy Impact

Mitchell had rushed seven times for 35 yards and caught two passes for eight yards before leaving. We are unsure of the extent of Mitchell's knee injury and will update you when we have further information. Christian McCaffrey and Jordan Mason will hold down the backfield for the rest of the contest.

Elijah Mitchell goes for 59 yards in Week 11

Elijah Mitchell rushed nine times for 59 yards in San Francisco's Week 11 victory over Arizona.

Fantasy Impact

Mitchell was very efficient running the ball tonight, as he averaged 6.6 yards per carry. He recorded 55 of his 59 yards in the second half to help put the Cardinals to bed. He actually led the team in carries, though was not targeted in the passing game. Mitchell will remain a volume-based RB3 against the Saints for Week 12.
