RB - SF - IR
Week 7 Outlook
San Francisco 49ers tail back Raheem Mostert announced on Twitter that after consulting with multiple doctors, he plans to undergo season-ending surgery in order to fully repair his knee.
This is a huge blow for fantasy managers who spent a high pick on Mostert and are now left looking for running backs. Mostert has consistently flashed his top-end potential as a fantasy running back, although him being unable to stay on the field made him a risky pick going into 2021. Fantasy managers should spend a great portion of their FAAB in attempt to get fellow running back Elijah Mitchell, who saw 19 carries for 104 yards on Sunday in Mostert's absence. Nonetheless, dynasty owners with Mostert can only hope he is able to come back in 2022 healthy and at 100%, though his fantasy value will certainly depend on where he signs in free agency.
49ers RB Raheem Mostert (knee) will be placed on IR and will be out approximately eight weeks after chipping cartilage in his knee.
Tough break for Mostert who looked healthy coming into the 2021 season. Elijah Mitchell stepped up brilliantly for the 49ers in his absence Week 1, rushing 19 times for 104 yards and a 38-yard touchdown run. He’ll likely be the 1A with Trey Sermon and/or JaMycal Hasty operating as the 1B in this offense. Mitchell is the number one priority waiver wire add this week.
49ers RB Raheem Mostert (knee) has been ruled out for the remainder of Week 1.
Not a great start to the season for one of fantasy football's most injury-plagued players. Mostert ran twice for 20 yards before exiting. Elijah Mitchell and JaMycal Hasty will carry the load in his absence. Trey Sermon was a healthy scratch this morning.
49ers RB Raheem Mostert (knee) is questionable to return in Week 1 against the Lions.
The 49ers will likely update his status around halftime. Stay tuned for more information. Trey Sermon was a healthy scratch today.
49ers RB Raheem Mostert rushed for 53 yards on seven carries in Sunday's victory over Las Vegas.
Mostert did all of his damage in the very first series for the 49ers. He was uber-efficient, averaging 7.6 yards per attempt. Trey Sermon replaced him on the next drive, and finished the game with seven carries for 37 yards. Both tailbacks will almost certainly split carries throughout the season, with Sermon possibly earning the lion's share of touches later in the year. While this is a great situation for the 49ers, it's likely to be a frustrating one for fantasy managers.
