49ers RB Trey Sermon will be active for Week 2 at the Philadelphia Eagles according to Matt Barrows The Athletic. Offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel said there was "an 'extra aggressiveness' from Sermon in practice this week in response to game day status against the Lions," according to Barrows.
SF RB Elijah Mitchell - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 2 at Philadelphia Eagles
Elijah Mitchell had 19 carries for 104 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 against the Lions. Mitchell benefitted from Raheem Mostert leaving the game with an injury, which led to Mostert deciding to have season-ending surgery, and he looks like he’ll be the starter moving forward. It was an unexpected surprise to see fellow rookie Trey Sermon a healthy scratch for Week 1, but Mitchell delivered.
Should be a tougher road ahead of him this week against the Eagles, who ranked eighth in aFPA to opposing running backs last season and held Mike Davis to 3.3 yards per carry in Week 1. With a likely strong workload ahead of him, we have Mitchell ranked as a low-end RB2 in a tough matchup.
