San Francisco 49ers RB Elijah Mitchell rushed 17 times for 42 yards in Week 2 against the Philadelphia Eagles and he was targeted twice, hauling in each for 11 yards.
Huddle Up: Mitchell exploded for 104 rushing yards and a score last week in place of the injured Raheem Mostert, but it was tough sledding in this one. Mitchell also suffered a shoulder injury, one of a handful of San Francisco tailbacks to leave the game in this one. He remains nothing more than a low-end RB3 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 3 against the Green Bay Packers on SNF if he is healthy.

San Francisco 49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (shoulder) suffered a shoulder injury during the Week 2 game and is considered questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Mitchell entered the game as the starting running back but could miss time depending on the severity of the injury. Trey Sermon would receive more playing time if Mitchell misses time and could be at least a flex option in fantasy leagues.

San Francisco 49ers RB Elijah Mitchell is expected to see the bulk of the carries in Week 2's game against the Philadelphia Eagles, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Although Trey Sermon and JaMycal Hasty are both expected to see some offensive snaps versus the Eagles this afternoon, Mitchell will continue to see a heavy workload after rushing for 104 yards and a touchdown in the season opener against the Detroit Lions. He's worthy of consideration as an RB2 or flex option in fantasy lineups.

San Francisco 49ers RB Elijah Mitchell gained 62 of his 104 rushing yards against the Detroit Lions in Week 1 with eight or more defenders in the box.
Huddle Up: While it remains to be seen if Mitchell will headline the San Francisco backfield the entire season, the job appears to be his to lose after his strong showing in the opener.

San Francisco 49ers RB Elijah Mitchell rushed 19 times for 104 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 against the Detroit Lions.
Huddle Up: Mitchell and JaMycal Hasty found the end zone on the ground, but Mitchell handled the majority of the carries. In fact, Hasty (1-3-1) and Raheem Mostert (2-20-0) had just three total attempts to Mitchell's 19 rushes, with Mostert exiting early due to injury. If Mitchell wasn't on your fantasy radar before, get him there this week. He looked really good, and is worth adding in case this becomes a regular happening and Mostert is forced to miss time.
