Surprise! 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan presented fantasy managers with the first major puzzle of the season. It was expected that Raheem Mostert and Sermon would divide most of the carries in a potent and alluring backfield. Mostert was indeed a prominent part of the picture in Week 1 - until he sustained a knee injury that wound up being season-ending. But Sermon was a healthy scratch, and instead of the third-rounder from Ohio State, it was another rookie, sixth-rounder Elijah Mitchell of Louisiana-Lafayette, who made noise. Mitchell played 35 of 55 snaps and carried 19 times for 104 yards and a touchdown (though he didn't see a target). JaMycal Hasty played 16 snaps, with his only carry being a three-yard TD run. He also had a 15-yard catch. The debate in fantasy this week has been whether Mitchell is worth the huge waiver expenditure it took to get him in FAAB leagues this week. A lot of fantasy managers believe Sermon is still the guy you want to have in this backfield. I touted Sermon throughout the offseason because I've seen the Shanahan family's zone-blocking scheme turn jobbers like Tatum Bell and Reuben Droughns into one-year wonders, while elite talents like Terrell Davis and Clinton Portis produced legendary seasons in it. If Sermon is an elite talent - and he sure looked the part at OSU last year - he could be an RB1 at a committee-back price. That could still be the case. But as a golfer, I also believe in playing the ball as it lies. For whatever reason, Shanahan used Mitchell over Sermon in Week 1, and then Mitchell proceeded to have a good game. It seems counterintuitive that Sermon would vault past Mitchell in Week 2. Sermon is an errant drive into the rough, and I'm not going to deceive myself about the reality of the situation by fluffing up a bad lie. I have Mitchell ranked RB23 this week and RB22 in the rest-of-season rankings. Sermon is RB48 this week and RB40 rest of season. Hasty is unplayable for now, but with all the Shanahanagans going on in this backfield, who knows? He could be the hot waiver add next week.The second-year man from Central Florida certainly has a knack for big plays. He had only two catches against the Steelers in Week 1 but averaged 20 yards a catch. Unfortunately, with Davis only playing about half of Buffalo's snaps and stuck in a No. 4 receiver role, he's simply not playable in most fantasy leagues right now.

We now have clarity that Raheem Mostert will miss the entire rest of the season after landing on IR. It's unfortunate for Mostert - who simply can't stay healthy - and we wish him a speedy recovery. As for the fantasy fallout, Elijah Mitchell seems to be the next option up after Kyle Shanahan mysteriously benched Sermon in week one against Detroit. Mitchell looked great against the porous Lions run defense and it appears that he's going to be given the opportunity to win this starting job here in San Francisco. That's at least the perception...we have no idea what the reality is and what Shanahan will choose to do. Mitchell can be viewed as a mid-range RB3 this week that has the potential to hit big or has the potential to somehow take a backseat to Sermon, who probably figures to be active in this one.Gabriel Davis was able to find the end zone in week one against the Pittsburgh Steelers defense, but he was the clear WR4 on this roster from a target share perspective. Moving forward, Davis is most likely going to fall into the FLEX conversation that will present some boom potential from time to time, but until we see him take over Sanders or Beasley from a snap share perspective, he can't be viewed as more than that.
