49ers RB Mitchell injury “a little worse” than expected

San Francisco head coach Kyle Shanahan said on Wednesday that running back ELIJAH MITCHELL’s injury is “a little worse than a stinger”, which the team originally suspected.

Factoid: Here we go again?

When the 49ers used their sixth-round pick on Elijah Mitchell, I jokingly suggested that we should all be keeping an eye on him. Kyle Shanahan’s track record with lightly regarded running backs, after all, is pretty stellar. With the first week of the season in the books, this is now looking a lot more possible.  more »

Rookie RB Sermon should have role in 49ers backfield

San Francisco rookie running back TREY SERMON has the vision, patience, and burst to be a perfect fit in Kyle Shanahan’s outside zone system. Sermon also brings a pass-catching dynamic thatMore has been missing from the 49ers running back corps. While RAHEEM MOSTERT is expected to lead the San Francisco backfield, he has had trouble staying healthy. Fantasy owners will want to keep an eye on Sermon as the offseason progresses. Less

Factoid: 49ers running backs

San Francisco seems to have the most convoluted running back situation in the league. They drafted a pair of guys who have some potential to start, but they’ve also got some capable veterans.  more »


Around the NFL: Rookie running backs

If you were watching the NFL Draft last night, you might have been wondering where all the running backs were. It was a historically thin group, with a total of four selected by the end of Round 3. That was the fewest taken in the first three rounds since 2016, which itself was the lowest number ever. Disappointing for the key position in fantasy leagues.   more »
