Rookie running back Elijah Mitchell will be making his postseason debut after a phenomenal debut season with the Niners. Here, we’ll go over his viability as an option in your DraftKings Daily Fantasy lineup this weekend.
Fantasy Football analysis: 49ers RB Elijah Mitchell ($5,500)
Mitchell managed to finish the season with just under 1,000 rushing yards despite missing a number of games with injury. He netted DFS users an average of 16.4 fantasy points per game, clocking three performances of 20+ points.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
There’s value for Mitchell at $5,500 with several other Wild Card round running backs going for higher prices. He’s worth a start as an RB2/flex option but be wary of the Cowboys’ vicious front seven potentially making things difficult for the rookie.
