For Week 14, fantasy managers should get another week of Alexander Mattison. It seems like Dalvin Cook will be out another game, which puts Mattison as a top-three running back against the Pittsburgh Steelers on "Thursday Night Football." Mattison had 90 rushing yards and a touchdown in Week 13. He added three receptions for 34 yards. Fantasy managers can start him with confidence to begin Week 14.
Elijah Mitchell entered the concussion protocol on Monday. At this point, JaMycal Hasty is the only healthy running back on the San Francisco 49ers roster. Hopefully, Mitchell can be cleared as the 49ers have a great matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals. If he is active, he is a borderline RB1. In Week 13, he had 66 rushing yards and a touchdown. Fantasy managers just need to be sure that Mitchell is active as Hasty isn't a great replacement.
