There was some belief entering Week 5 that Sermon's patience/vision/power would pair better with Trey Lance's abilities than Elijah Mitchell's speed would. However, Kyle Shanahan doesn't seem to think so. Mitchell handled 81.8% of the team's RB rushing share on Sunday. He was clearly the lead guy and Sermon is shaping up as a RB4/handcuff option moving forward.
