RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Mitchell compiled 76 yards and scored a touchdown on five receptions in Thursday's 31-28 win over the Ti-Cats. He also caught a two-point conversion pass.

The Northwestern State product matched his reception total and exceeded his yardage figure from last season in Thursday's start, while also hauling in the first touchdown of his CFL career. Mitchell hit pay dirt on a nifty 29-yard catch-and-run late in the first quarter to open the scoring for Edmonton and looked the part overall in place of Adarius Bowman (hamstring). With Bowman now on the six-game injured list, Mitchell becomes an intriguing and low-cost DFS option in the Eskimos' high-powered attack for the next several weeks.

Mitchell appeared in just one game for the Eskimos last year, but he did tally five receptions for 69 yards in that contest.

Mitchell hauled in a team-high four receptions for 43 yards in Saturday's 25-11 preseason victory over the Roughriders.

The 23-year-old wideout turned in a second consecutive productive outing, which included a 25-yard grab. Mitchell has set some strong expectations for what he might be able to contribute in 2016 with a two-game exhibition tally of 10 catches for 81 yards and a touchdown. He turned in modest totals of five receptions for 45 yards and two rushes for 17 yards in the 2015 preseason slate, following a 53-reception, 564-yard haul with five touchdowns over a 21-game college career.
