Elijah Mitchell (ribs, finger) is expected to suit up for 49ers in Week 12

San Francisco 49ers running back Elijah Mitchell (ribs, finger) is expected to play in the team's Week 12 game against the Minnesota Vikings.

What It Means:

Mitchell missed the team's Week 11 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars while he recovered from a mid-week finger surgery, but is trending towards playing in Week 12 against the Vikings. Mitchell has asserted himself as the 49ers' lead back this season in the absence of Raheem Mostert (knee), and should continue to see the dominant share of the running back opportunities in Week 12.

Our models project Mitchell, who has a $6,800 salary on FanDuel, to score 11.1 fantasy points against the Vikings this week. We project Jeff Wilson, who led the backfield with Mitchell sidelined last week, to finish with just 6.3 fantasy points if Mitchell returns.
