• Mitchell’s glaring weakness is the lack of receiving production, which makes him a risky pick in PPR and 0.5PPR formats.
• Mitchell’s current ADP at RB24 makes him a slight value, according to the PFF consensus fantasy rankings.
ELIJAH MITCHELL COMPS
Mitchell emerged as the unlikely lead back for the 49ers last season as a sixth-round rookie. The Day-3 pick was very productive on the ground, averaging nearly 90 rushing yards per game when healthy and finishing at the top-24 for his position in seven of the 11 weeks he played. Mitchell compares favorably to a number of running backs who finished top-20 in PPR leagues during their second seasons.
