RB: Elijah Mitchell

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (shoulder) was removed from the team's final injury report.

Mitchell was available for every practice throughout the week, logging full participation on Friday before being removed from the injury report altogether. Sunday will mark the first time fantasy managers get a glimpse of San Francisco's true backfield usage sans Raheem Mostert since Trey Sermon is expected to be active, too. Mitchell handled 38 total touches across Weeks 1 and 2 and should be ranked higher than Sermon against Arizona, albeit as an RB3.
