Elijah Mitchell has monster game against Minnesota

San Francisco 49ers running back Elijah Mitchell picked up 133 rushing yards on 27 carries with one touchdown to go along with five catches on six targets for 35 yards in a 34-26 win over the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact

Mitchell came into this one a little banged up as he had a rib injury and was recovering from a broken finger that he sustained two weeks ago. The injuries didn't seem to impact him one bit though as he totaled a season-high 168 total yards. He easily led the team in carries with 27 but was vultured by Deebo Samuel twice, who picked up a pair of rushing scores. Mitchell still had a huge game and continued to show promise in the passing game as well. He is the clear lead back in the Niners vaunted rushing attack and is a locked-in RB1 for next week's matchup against the Seahawks.

Elijah Michell (rib, finger) active for Week 12

49ers running back Elijah Mitchell is active for Sunday’s game against the Vikings. He had been listed as questionable with rib and finger injuries.

Fantasy Impact

Mitchell, who has totaled 633 scrimmage yards and three touchdowns through seven contests this season, missed last week’s game and thus could cede touches to Jeff Wilson Jr. this Sunday. As such, the rookie should be viewed as a low-end RB2 in a favorable matchup against the Vikings.

Elijah Mitchell expected to play in Week 12

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting 49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (finger, ribs) is expected to play in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact

Mitchell missed last week's win over the Jaguars with multiple injuries but is in line to return for Sunday's tilt against the Vikings. With Jeff Wilson back in the fold, there is a chance Mitchell cedes touches, if active, in a terrific matchup facing a Vikings defense that has been gashed by enemy backs all year. Monitor Mitchell's playing status leading up to kickoff in case he suffers any pregame setbacks.

Elijah Mitchell (rib, finger) officially questionable for Week 12

49ers running back Elijah Mitchell (rib, finger) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact

Mitchell saw a season-low 53 percent snap share in Week 10, then was inactive due to his rib injury this past Sunday. With Jeff Wilson fighting for more touches, Mitchell would be a high-end RB3 if active.

Elijah Mitchell (finger) limited at practice on Wednesday

Elijah Mitchell (finger) was limited at practice on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Mitchell is seemingly on track to play in Week 12 against the Vikings. This finger injury kept him out of practice last week, so a limited session is a good sign.
