Is Elijah Mitchell playing on Thursday night?

UPDATE:Mitchell was officially ruled OUT for Thursday's game.

Mitchell has cleared concu sion protocols, but he's still dealing with a knee injury. San FranciscoGM John Lynch has already said Mitchell, but as a “DNP” both Monday and Tuesday, it's safe to a sume he's more “doubtful” than truly “questionable.”

If Mitchell plays, he has a toughpath to great fantasy succe s. Tenne see has had a notoriously bad defense over the past two seasons, but this year, the Titans have allowed the second-fewest fantasy points to RBs. Its weakne s is entirely in the secondary, but the front seven of the defense Justin Turner Jersey is one of the league's best units. Additionally, although Mitchell has made noise in the pa sing game lately, he's not a sure thing for a ton of targets now that George Kittle is fully back, so his PPR floor isn't safeeither. It's gonna be tough to bench the 49ers' starting RB regardle s, but it's a feasible option depending on the other guys in your start-sit conversions.

If he doesn't play, Jeff Wilson Jr. will be the primary back once again, but obviously, the same sentiments apply here. Tenne see held Najee Harris to just 26 yards on 14 touches, Jackie Robinson Jersey so they're a legitimately tough matchup. Even Jonathan Taylor had two quiet performances against this unit. Wilson brings next to nothing in the receiving game, too, so he's even le s likely to have a great day on Thursday if he starts.

Ultimately, this sets up to be a pa s-happy game script for the 49ers, as weird as that sounds. Of course, Mitchell or Wilson could benefit from easy goal-line carries and a touchdown, but we're not convinced the volume and yardage totals will be there. With Mitchell currently out of the rankings, we Walker Buehler Jersey have Wilson Jr. as the and . Mitchell would be ranked just a few spots higher, but he'd be a low-end RB2, at best. Obviously, you're starting George Kittle and Deebo Samuel here, and Brandon Aiyuk and Jimmy Garoppolo make a lot of sense, but be cautious with the Niners' RBs.
