Player Outlook
Once considered a promising young prospect, Mason could be in a battle for a roster spot this preseason after the Niners drafted a running back and added another in rookie free agency. The bigger back has always posted good numbers in terms of efficiency -- just check out his yards per carry -- but Kyle Shanahan has preferred other guys to be the direct backup to Christian McCaffrey. It's possible that Mason could thrive on another roster, a distinct possibility since he's experienced in Shanahan's system and a lot of teams run that same kind of scheme, plus he's an inexpensive option entering a contract year. If Mason escapes San Francisco he'll have a shot to claim some Fantasy value, but until that happens, Fantasy managers shouldn't pay much mind to him outside of Dynasty leagues.

  • 49ers' Jordan Mason: Gains 48 yards as RB2

    Mason took six carries for 36 yards and caught his only target for 12 yards in Sunday's 21-20 loss to the Rams. MVP hopeful Christian McCaffrey (calf) was rested Week 18, so primary backup Elijah Mitchell started Sunday's tilt. Mason wound up logging 27 snaps on offense (44 percent) to Mitchell's 32 (52 percent). While both tailbacks nearly split McCaffrey's playing time Sunday, Mitchell (14-52-1) wound up having more plays executed for him and also nabbed the only touchdown the backfield duo would produce in the loss. Mason wraps up the 2023 campaign with numbers (40-206-3) similar to his rookie year (43-258-1) while also serving as one of the 49ers' top coverage men on special teams.

  • 49ers' Jordan Mason: Sleeper RBs

    There's a good chance Mason could be the lead running back for the 49ers in Week 18 against the Rams, and I would use him as a flex option in all leagues in that scenario. Christian McCaffrey (calf) has already been ruled out, and I'd be surprised if the 49ers played Elijah Mitchell much after he missed three of the past four games with a knee injury. Tyrion Davis-Price could be added off the practice squad to share touches with Mason, who has four games this season with at least four carries, and he scored a touchdown in three of them. This isn't an easy matchup against the Rams, but they also are resting players in preparation for the postseason. Keep an eye on what develops prior to Sunday, but Mason has plenty of upside if Mitchell joins McCaffrey on the sidelines in Week 18.

Keep an eye on what develops before Sunday, but Mason has plenty of upside if Mitchell joins McCaffrey on the sidelines in Week 18. Now, if we find out that Mitchell will play in Week 18, I'll replace Mason with Mitchell in the column later in the week.

  • 49ers' Jordan Mason: Could be busy Sunday

    Mason could get significant playing time at running back Sunday against the Rams, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports. Mason has mostly played special teams this season,, sitting behind Christian McCaffrey (calf) and Elijah Mitchell on the depth chart for offense when the latter two backs have both been healthy. Week 18 may be another story, however, as the Niners have locked up the top playoff seed in the NFC and won't have McCaffrey available for their final regular-season game. The calf injury McCaffrey suffered Week 17 might also make the team more cautious with his top backup, Mitchell, who has a lengthy injury history of his own. It thus won't come as any surprise if Mason and/or practice-squad member Tyrion Davis-Price ends up leading the ground attack this Sunday against the Rams.

  • 49ers' Jordan Mason: Week 18 Waiver Priority List

    Christian McCaffrey (calf) has already been ruled out for Week 18 against the Rams, and I'd be surprised if the 49ers played Elijah Mitchell much after he missed three of the past four games with a knee injury. If we find out that Mitchell (37 percent rostered) is playing this week then make him the priority, but I expect San Francisco to be safe and lean on Mason here. This isn't an easy matchup against the Rams, but they also might be resting players in preparation for the postseason. Mason has four games this season with at least four carries, and he scored a touchdown in three of them.

  • 49ers' Jordan Mason: Week 18 Adds (RB Preview)

    If both Christian McCaffrey and Elijah Mitchell are out Jordan Mason could be looking at a monster workload. Mason has been extremely efficient in his career, averaging 5.5 yards per carry, and you shouldn't have to worry about the Rams great run defense because we're expecting them to rest their starters as well.

  • 49ers' Jordan Mason: Relegated to third RB

    Mason had two carries for three yards and was not targeted as a receiver in Sunday's 27-10 win over Washington. Mason was relegated to third on San Francisco's RB depth chart following the return of Elijah Mitchell (knee) on Sunday. The latter wound up posting a strong rushing line (17-80-1) against the Commanders in relief of Christian McCaffrey (calf). McCaffrey's injury currently is considered minor, but the MVP candidate still could sit out Week 18 with the 49ers already locking up the No. 1 seed in the NFC. In that scenario, Mason would slide into the No. 2 role with Mitchell likely serving as the team's lead back to close out the regular season against the Rams.

  • 49ers' Jordan Mason: Misses practice due to illness

    Mason (illness) did not practice Thursday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. Mason wasn't on San Francisco's injury report for the first day of Week 17 prep, so he appears to have come down with an illness late Wednesday or early Thursday. The second-year running back was limited to special-teams work last Monday against Baltimore after logging nine carries for 40 yards and a touchdown over his previous two games. Elijah Mitchell (knee) is expected to return from a three-game absence Sunday versus the Commanders, so Mason could again see limited -- if any -- work on offense in that contest.

  • 49ers' Jordan Mason: Limited to special teams

    Mason did not see the field on offense Monday, finishing with 12 snaps on special teams in a 33-19 loss to Baltimore. The 49ers were playing catch-up for most of this one-sided affair, which resulted in star tailback Christian McCaffrey playing 100 percent of the offensive snaps. This left Mason -- who has been operating as the No. 2 back with Elijah Mitchell (knee) sidelined -- with zero touches after averaging 3.7 carries and 16.7 rushing yards over San Francisco's last three games. Assuming the NFC's top seed does not get blown out by the 4-11 Commanders on Sunday, Mason should resume his role on offense spelling CMC with a handful of touches on New Year's Eve.

  • 49ers' Jordan Mason: Logs 13 snaps Sunday

    Mason had five rushing attempts for 20 yards and wasn't targeted as a receiver in Sunday's 45-29 win over Arizona. Mason wound up logging 13 snaps on offense (23 percent) backing up Christian McCaffrey as normal backup Elijah Mitchell (knee) remained sidelined. Mason finished with 20 rushing yards for the second week in a row, but he was unable to punch in a touchdown like he did against Seattle. The 25-year-old should continue to see a handful of touches against the Ravens next Monday.

  • 49ers' Jordan Mason: Scores TD spelling CMC

    Mason had four carries for 20 yards and a touchdown and a reception of six yards in Sunday's 28-16 win over the Seahawks. The special teams ace elevated to No. 2 on San Francisco's running back depth chart after Elijah Mitchell (knee) was unable to suit up against the Seahawks. Mason quickly took advantage of the opportunity when he scored a touchdown on the second play from scrimmage Sunday. His three-yard score came on the heels of an electric 72-yard run from starter Christian McCaffrey, who likely needed a play off to catch his breath after sprinting nearly the length of the field. Mason wound up playing just six snaps on offense (11 percent) and finishing with five combined touches. Even if he's backing up McCaffrey again next Sunday at Arizona, fantasy managers shouldn't expect more than a handful of touches from the backup against Arizona.

  • 49ers' Jordan Mason: Active Sunday

    Mason (hamstring) is active Sunday against the Eagles. The running back was listed as questionable going into the day. Mason is third on the depth chart behind Christian McCaffrey and Elijah Mitchell, and has not carried the ball since Week 6. The second-year pro does have 21 carries for 117 yards and two touchdowns this season.

  • 49ers' Jordan Mason: Deemed questionable

    Mason (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. Mason has been restricted to special teams of late and isn't likely to get any playing time on offense in a crucial NFC showdown unless Christian McCaffrey or Elijah Mitchell suffers an injury. If Mason doesn't end up playing, it'll merely impact the 49ers' special teams units, where he's taken double-digit snaps every week this year.

  • 49ers' Jordan Mason: Week 7 Adds (RB Preview)

    The situation in San Francisco is a fluid one, so make sure you check the latest news before making your final waiver claims. If Christian McCaffrey misses Week 7, we expect a split between Jordan Mason and Elijah Mitchell. Mason saw most of the work in Week 6, so we lean toward him, but both backs would be worth starting as flexes at least. Mitchell should do most of the work in the passing game, but Mason is expected to be the lead rusher.

  • 49ers' Jordan Mason: Scores TD after McCaffrey's injury

    Mason rushed five times for 27 yards and a touchdown but wasn't targeted in Sunday's 19-17 loss to the Browns. Mason took over as San Francisco's lead back after Christian McCaffrey (oblique/rib) exited in the second half. The 24-year-old running back out of Georgia Tech gave the 49ers a 17-13 lead with an eight-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter, but Cleveland responded with a pair of field goals to hand the 49ers their first loss of the season. Elijah Mitchell (knee) returned from a two-game absence but had just minus-3 yards on two carries. If McCaffrey is unable to suit up against the Vikings in Week 7, Mason would likely lead San Francisco's backfield over Mitchell.

  • 49ers' Jordan Mason: Rips off TD in garbage time

    Mason rushed 10 times for 69 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 42-10 win over the Cowboys. He failed to bring in his lone target. Elijah Mitchell (knee) remained sidelined for the second week in a row, affording Mason the opportunity to continue operating as the team's No. 2 backfield option. The special teams ace wound up playing 13 snaps on offense (18 percent), most of which came in the closing moments of Sunday's lopsided affair. Mason put the final nail in the Cowboys' coffin Sunday when he ripped off a 26-yard run in the fourth quarter for the 49ers' sixth and final touchdown of the contest. The 24-year-old finished as the team's leading rusher, but that had more to do with the crooked score as opposed to his role expanding. Fantasy managers should expect to see a handful of touches from Mason in Week 6 if Mitchell remains sidelined for next Sunday's tilt against Cleveland.

  • 49ers' Jordan Mason: Set for No. 2 role Sunday

    Mason is in line to serve as the 49ers' No. 2 running back Sunday against the Cardinals with Elijah Mitchell (knee) listed as questionable but not expected to be active for the contest, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports. The 49ers are also expected to have Tyrion Davis-Price suit up for the first time this season after he was a healthy inactive for the first three games, but he'll likely be ticketed for the No. 3 role while Mason operates as the top backup to lead back Christian McCaffrey. Though McCaffrey should be poised to dominate the snaps and touches while the game is competitive, the 49ers are pegged as two-touchdown favorites by most sportsbooks, meaning that Mason could be in store for plenty of playing time in the event the game turns into a runaway. While both McCaffrey and Mitchell have been available for the first three weeks of the season, Mason's opportunities have been limited almost exclusively to special teams, though he did get three carries late in the 30-12 win over the Giants in Week 3.

  • 49ers' Jordan Mason: Remains limited Thursday

    Mason (foot) was a limited participant at the 49ers' practice Thursday, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports. Mason is dealing with a sprained foot he suffered in the team's preseason finale Aug. 25 and he has now logged back-to-back limited practices. The running back will look to increase his participation Friday in order to play Sunday in San Francisco's regular season opener against the Steelers on the road.

  • 49ers' Jordan Mason: Limited Wednesday

    Mason (foot) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. Mason emerged from the 49ers' preseason finale with a sprained foot, but his return to drills Wednesday indicates that he's making progress in his recovery effort. The 49ers backfield is paced by the do-it-all Christian McCaffrey, whose direct backup, Elijah Mitchell, will also get touches on game days as long as he's healthy. As a result, if Mason isn't ready for Sunday's game in Pittsburgh, Tyrion Davis-Price may be the team's third active running back in that contest.

  • 49ers' Jordan Mason: Loses fumble in loss

    Mason took nine carries for 59 yards and recorded one catch for 13 yards in Friday's 23-12 preseason loss to the Chargers, but he lost a fumble at the goal line on the opening drive. With Christian McCaffrey and Elijah Mitchell held out, Mason dominated first-team snaps on a night that saw Brock Purdy, Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk and George Kittle all playing. They faced the Chargers' second-team defense and would've scored 14 points in two drives if not for Mason losing a fumble at the goal line. Tyrion Davis-Price then dominated backfield work with the second-stringers en route to 12 touches for 76 yards, perhaps giving the Niners a tougher decision between him and Mason for the No. 3 RB job. Keeping both isn't out of the question.
