Coach Kyle Shanahan loves to shake up his backfield, sampling talents from everywhere and frustrating fantasy players. But it'll be hard to keep the impressive Mitchell from a workhorse role in 2022. Mitchell, a sixth-round pick last year, took an immediate shine to the NFL and emerged as Shanahan's clear-cut top back. He posted 1,100 scrimmage yards and scored 6 touchdowns over 11 regular-season games, but he truly ascended down the stretch and into the playoffs. Mitchell averaged 24 touches and averaged 98.0 total yards over the 49ers' last 8 games, casting quite a shadow over this untested depth chart. Give a Shanahan back 20+ touches a game, and it would be a massive upset to see less than a high-end RB2 finish.
