Fantasy Implications

Elijah Mitchell joins Trey Sermon in this years draft to get picked by the 49ers. Mitchell offers a lot sneakier value than Sermon, and he’s going to be a guy who you won’t hear about until 2022 due to the crowed backfield in San Francisco.

Mitchell should be a guy everyone targets in the 4th round of your Rookie Drafts because of the upside this guy has. The 49ers love to go RBBC (running back by committee), so I wouldn’t be surprised if he stepped into the RB rotation next year and offers RB2 upside. I know it might sound crazy, but this guy is really good.
