RB Tyrion Davis-Price, SF (1 Viewer)

This guy is growing on me and think he may hold the best value in rookie drafts. Stocky, well built back who always gains extra yards after contact. He also has good speed for his size and was considered one of the better pass protecting running backs in the draft. Shanahan loves to run the ball and Mitchell missed time last year. For where you can get him in rookie drafts I think he holds a lot of upside.

He seems to be gaining traction by some analysts as a possible darkhorse.  Greg Cosell likes him quite a bit and sees him as a good scheme fit.

As a Sermon owner, I'd like to see Sermon get cut and go elsewhere...Shanny hates Sermon which bodes well for TDP.

I'm pretty sure the play they're referring to is this one, his 37-yard run on 4th & 1 against Alabama with 8:05 left in the game.

Going by frame count, it looks to me like he gets up to 19mph, maybe 19.5, on that play. Which is not very fast. I have Isaiah Spiller, Treylon Burks, and Jameson Williams all getting over 21 mph (and those are the only other 3 plays I've looked at).

(I have him progressing downfield at about 18mph, 17 frames to go each 5 yards on a 30 fps video, between the 30 and 15 yard lines. He's angling towards the sideline, going maybe 5 or 6 yards horizontally along with those 15 yards downfield, which makes his speed something like 1.05x or 1.08x that 18mph.)

So I don't get how the Niners think that this Davis-Price's speed on this play "was among the top five speeds of any of the runners in the draft."

Not sure if he will be the next Mitchell, the next Sermon, or someone in between. But it would be foolish to ignore this guy in drafts considering the historical revolving door at the SF RB position. If I'm a Mitchell owner, I'd make sure to get this guy on my team.

Could not agree more...he has nice size, played for a high-end program (LSU) where he just ran for 1,000 yards and was a 3rd round pick by a team that usually runs the ball very well...he is far from a definite but that right there should catch any Dynasty owners attention yet he definitely seems to be flying under the radar...I was real surprised how low I got him in both my leagues.

This article pretty much explains the role they envisioned him for.  Deebo doesn't want to run, Mitchell is a fast one cut zone runner like they've always used in SF, and TDP is better for power runs which they're mixing in more often.  

Here's what Kevin Faulk (his college rb coach) said after they drafted him

“I think he fits in with the other guys they have there, especially Elijah. I just think those two guys will complement each other real well.”

It sounds to me like he wasn't drafted to compete for the starting job, but as a change of pace/complementary back.  He might end up being so good he earns the starting job, but they're not likely to change their offense to suit him.

speculating on what shanny is gonna do based on what a different coach said? I think the intention is likely what the niners do every year and bring in several guys

Agree with this which is why I like kid this year (especially for where you can get him as I think he will get the opportunity) but would deal him next offseason if he hits because Shanny makes me very nervous.

No that quote was from a completely different article.  

The article i linked has quotes from Shanahan and discusses why they drafted him

TYRION DAVIS-PRICE RB, SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS

ESPN's Nick Wagoner writes that third-round RB Tyrion Davis-Price is a good bet to emerge as a top two option in the backfield.

Wagoner is thus projecting Davis-Price to beat out Jeff Wilson for the main backup job, as well as other stragglers like Trey Sermon and JaMycal Hasty. We saw this show last year with Sermon, so it's likely that nobody will actually buy on this statement until the moment the opening depth chart is actually settled. But it's notable that Wagoner believes it this early in the process. Both Sermon and Wilson still make the roster in Wagoner's early 53-man projection.

If you did happen to take Elijah Mitchell and if you have the roster space then Davis-Price makes some sense at the end of your bench as perhaps RB5, pretty cheap insurance for the SF backfield and I feel like Wilson much like Mostert is not in the long term plans. He's been good when he is available but I don't think they view Wilson as any type of long term solution in their back field.

I hope Davis-Price doesn't have to shoulder too big of a load this season but as long as Mitchell gets around the same touch total per game he got last year, plenty of carries to go around with a young QB who won't be asked to throw all over the place.

Certainly the Davis-Price stock has to move from say pennies to maybe $1 a share now?

And this is what makes owning SF backs so much fun.

Everyone has already anointed Jordan Mason the heir to the throne in the other thread.

If you own one you need to own three of them...Shanny is not gonna make this easy and I would be shocked if he doesn't add another quality one next offseason regardless of how these guys do.

4, including Wilson.

Let's focus on 2022 :lol:
I'm with you and agree but I need Mitchell for as much as I can get out of him in '22. I agree you need a back up but I would like to see who the official No 2 is. Wilson is like Mostert at this point, just cannot stay healthy and when he was in the games last year it wasn't anything as special as what he flashed in years prior. I'm surprised he is still on the team but it won't shock me when he is injured or inactive for whatever reasons.

There's always 1-2 behind the RB ready to jump in but I want to stress that when you look at Mitchell last year, his last 5 starts in the regular season saw carry totals North of 20 per game, that's good stuff. This is not an RBBC is Mitchell is 100%...or 95%...or 90%, but below that and yeah we start getting RBBC and when are there not injuries in the SF backfield?

I agree that Mitchell is absolutely the one to own (and looked very good last year) but both Mason and Davis-Price were not there last year so who knows what Shanny is thinking...Mitchell has proven to be far from durable in his short time and if he gets dinged again maybe Shanny says screw it with him...I only do Dynasty so my plan is to add these guys if I have room/opportunity and move on from them as soon as the return is decent...no way would I ever rely on them long-term...just too much room for error.

As a Mitchell owner in redraft trying to figure out which backup to own, I think I am finally accepting that it is Jeff Wilson.

Between Mitchell & Wilson they will probably start 13-16 games rendering both TDP & Mason useless in 2022.

Didn't get to watch the game, his numbers looked pretty bad though. The opportunity was there which has to be a positive.

49ers RB Tyrion Davis-Price has been diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain and will be sidelined for a "few weeks."​

The third-round rookie played 30 snaps behind Jeff Wilson's 37 in the Week 2 win over the Seahawks, but TDP was bottled up for 33 yards on 14 carries. He killed the clock for the Niners in the final minutes. With Davis-Price and Elijah Mitchell (knee) now out multiple weeks, look for UDFA rookie Jordan Mason to tag-team the 49ers' backfield with Wilson the next few weeks.

Sounds like Mason or someone else is going to be in line for some touches

San Fran loses a RB just about every week
Truth! A couple of years ago, I had Mostert, Coleman, Wilson and Hasty on one fantasy team and they were all injured at the same time. Now, I have TDP and Mason. Looks like Mason is going to get a shot at some point.

He didn’t look great in preseason either. He doesn’t have an explosive burst or seem to run through anyone. I’m surprised he got the snaps he did last week, and got the exact poor results I would expect. I would not roster him in any capacity in redraft, even in an IR spot because there are better IR options.
