The San Francisco 49ers look to continue their run as the road team when they visit the Los Angeles Rams Sunday in the NFC championship game. The 49ers are one win away from reaching the Super Bowl for the second time in three seasons, with running back Elijah Mitchell being a big part of the team’s success this season. The talented rookie doesn’t have an official injury designation for Sunday’s game, but did progressively work up to a full practice session during the week.
Fantasy/betting impact: Elijah Mitchell (knee)
Mitchell has been dealing with this knee issue all season, and it has occasionally cost him games. That doesn’t appear to be the case Sunday, as the rookie should have the full workload against the Rams. Deebo Samuel will continue to get some carries out of the backfield but Mitchell is still the lead back. He’s a strong DFS option even with LA’s defense lining up against him.
