2023 Outlook
Depth Chart
One reason the 49ers made the move for McCaffrey was that Mitchell got hurt... again. Over two years in the NFL, Mitchell has appeared in 16 of 33 games due to a variety of injuries, which included two stints on Injured Reserve last year -- he also missed the NFC Championship Game with a groin issue. When healthy, he's been effective, averaging 4.9 yards on 252 career carries, though his lack of involvement in the passing game portends an early-down role even if McCaffrey were to miss time.

As a standalone talent, Mitchell is a borderline top-50 fantasy back, as the 49ers would like to give him enough touches each week to keep McCaffrey fresh over a 17-game season. He'd be a savvy handcuff for CMC owners as well, though Mitchell has serious medical issues that could make him a wasted pick if he can't stay off the IR. It's a definite "buyer beware" situation.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Christian McCaffrey feeling fine
HC shoots down talk of RB being bothered by quad issue
By: Doug Orth | Tue Jan 23, 10:00 pm

San Francisco
For the 49ers, the good news is that running back Christian McCaffrey had another great game in the divisional round against the Packers, with 98 rushing yards on 17 carries, 30 receiving yards and two touchdowns. The better news is that he’s healthy, even though some thought he might not be. On Monday, coach Kyle Shanahan was asked about TV images showing McCaffrey getting his quad worked on. Is there an issue with it? “No, I heard about that on the TV [broadcast] because some of my family members asked me about it,” Shanahan said. “But that’s just what Christian to me always does. He’s always working on his body and stuff. I was told nothing about his quad.” (Pro Football Talk - Mike Florio)

FFToday's Take: The broadcast showed up after getting quad worked on early in the game. One would have to think the 49ers would have made getting Elijah Mitchell more work if CMC's health against Green Bay was much of an issue. McCaffrey's biggest obstacle this week figures to be Detroit's run defense, although he should be able to make up for it with his work in the passing game. McCaffrey is always a big part of the offense, but his presence could be even more important this week if Deebo Samuel (shoulder) cannot play.


Injury Christian McCaffrey will not play in season finale
RB suffered mild calf strain in Week 17

Kyle Shanahan says RB Christian McCaffrey has a mild calf strain and will miss the Week 18 regular-season finale. (NFL Network - Clayton Holloway)

FFToday's Take: With the NFC No. 1 seed clinched and a bye week following that, it makes no sense for CMC or the team to push their running back. He'll have the good fortune of resting up to three full weeks if he needs it. Elijah Mitchell filled in quite nicely, finishing with 17 carries for 80 yards and a touchdown. He will be a priority add for the relatively few leagues that use Week 18 to determine their champion.
