• This may be Christian McCaffrey’s backfield, but Mitchell deserves his flowers, too. Mitchell has carved out a sizable portion of the workload since his return from injury in Week 18. During that span, he has accumulated just three fewer red-zone touches than McCaffrey (10 to 13). He didn't manage to find the end zone this past week but has still totaled three scores over the past three games, equaling McCaffrey. Head coach Kyle Shanahan understands the need to balance his superstar back’s usage and health, which is why Mitchell has been heavily featured during this playoff run, totaling 27 touches to McCaffrey’s 33.
