Week 7 at Minnesota Vikings
Jordan Mason got the bulk of the work over Elijah Mitchell when Christian McCaffrey went down last week, but we don’t know for sure how much of that was due to Mitchell coming off an injury with limited practice time in the week leading up to the game. Mason will be in contention for starter snaps with Mitchell if McCaffrey is unable to go. However, with McCaffrey’s status unclear and two backs vying for the same backup job, it’s too risky to insert Mason into lineups. Stash him if you have room, but look elsewhere for your lineup.
