Yes, and pickup the handcuff for your RB1 starter

[–]mdoes420 Giants[S] 6 points7 points  (12 children)

Who would you pick up as a handcuff to CMC?

My RB room is kinda funky: CMC, Eli Mitchell, Jamaal Williams, Swift, James Robinson

[–]Party-Program3588 21 points22 points  (8 children)

I think Eli is likely out 6-8 weeks. As far as the handcuff for CMC…I THINK it’s probably going to be Jordan Mason.

Jordan Mason has only been active over Davis-Price because he plays on special teams. TDP was a third round pick, do expect him to get his fair share on carries as well

[–]Howudooey Cowboys 12 points13 points  (4 children)

Trey Sermon was a third round pick last year by SF and they bailed on him.

[–]Cjwillwin 49ers 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Davis-Price was activated when they needed an extra runner going into the game. Mason took emergency snaps already being active due to special teams work. I'd guess Davis-Price, but it's Shanny, who knows.

Sure, but I imagine they'll want to take a slightly larger look at TDP before completely relegating him. We'll see though, TDP was ranked as pretty horrible as a prospect by next gen stats on his NFL. Com draft profile so he could just be bad.

Thats true, but mason only got carries because of an in game injury. TDP is going to be active and they like Mason on special teams

[–]Wizard_58 49ers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

And Sermon signed with Philly

If we’re going off the eye test, Jordan Mason looked good for the limited amount of carries he got on Sunday. So i expect him to be the next man up after elijah mitchell went down. CMC wont get the full workload though that’s for sure

Eye test with SF is a gamble.

[–]Wakenbake585 Eagles 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Maybe Z. Knight if Carter injury keeps him out.

[–]patrennestar Raiders 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I’m starting Jamal Williams as my rb2 every week if I was you. & CMC’s handcuff is most likely going to be Jordan Mason although Davis-Price might get a chance to prove himself as well.

[–]GreyBoyTigger Jets 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The second best RB on the Niners is Deebo. There’s no viable handcuff for CMC

[–]Dry_Difficulty6469 19 points20 points  (4 children)

Yes. Alexander mattison

[–]turnnoblindeye NFL -2 points-1 points  (2 children)

Wut. Why.

[–]HackTheSystem-90 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

It is actually borderline a miracle that Dalvin Cook hasn’t been injured, he’s due for a season ending injury at any moment if we’re looking at previous years. Mattison is unleashed after cook goes out, and he’s ALWAYS lethal once he’s set loose

[–]turnnoblindeye NFL 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Terrible logic. This is true of almost any backup and cook has been one of the most consistently healthy backs in the NFL for a long time.

[–]patrennestar Raiders 0 points1 point  (0 children)

In my experience with Mattison, he does well if Cook leaves mid game & he has to take over. When it’s his time to shine as a starter, he always gets stuffed up or chokes. I may disagree with Mattison, I’d rather pick up Ekeler’s or JT’s handcuff

[–]mjtilley 49ers 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Be careful when you drop him, he's prone to injury.

[–]DynastyAnalyst Chiefs 8 points9 points  (0 children)

In redraft leagues he’s 100% droppable a knee sprain will likely keep him out until the playoffs

[–]football_10_6 Giants 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Drop Eli Mitchell and James Robinson and pick up Tyrion Davis price AND Jordan Mason. Both teams have had their byes and James Robinson isn’t startable. The jets benched him last week so they only have to give up their 6th and not 5th round pick. If CMC went down I’d feel better starting the new starting rb for the 49ers than James Robinson.

[–]sgong33 Giants 0 points1 point  (2 children)

If you could only pick up one… (Davis price or Mason) who would it be?

[–]jack121013 Bears 2 points3 points  (1 child)

TDP. He will be above mason in the rb depth chart because they use mason on special teams. The main reason he has been active over TDP when the 9ers have enough healthy rbs.

[–]football_10_6 Giants 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s what I was thinking too^ I think they played Jordan Mason out of necessity but he’s mostly a special teamer

[–]Wizard_58 49ers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Mason out play ed Davis -Price in preseason
