Depth Chart
Despite having a loaded backfield depth chart that includes Frank Gore, solid second year player Kendall Hunter, former Giant Brandon Jacob and Anthony Dixon, the 49ers surprisingly used a 2nd round pick on Oregon running back LaMichael James. James excelled in Oregonís spread offense but his lack of size may relegate him to a change of pace, receiving role in the NFL. Of course it is possible the 49ers view him as Goreís heir apparent since they drafted him highly despite Hunter, a 4th round pick in 2011, showing plenty of promise as a rookie. For fantasy purposes, it is best to take a wait and see approach with James since he could easily open the season fourth on the teamís depth chart. Consider him worthy of a late round selection as Goreís handcuff provided he wins that job and a mid-tier prospect in dynasty leagues.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury LaMichael James out with dislocated elbow     -- Sun Jul 27 8:00 pm --

Expected to miss four weeks
Running back LaMichael James was carted off the field Sunday after he suffered an injury to his left arm early in practice. NFL Network reported that James suffered a dislocated elbow and that he is expected to miss a month or so. (San Jose Mercury News)

FF Today's Take: The 49ers running back corps has taken a beating the last couple days. Kendall Hunter (ACL) will miss the entire season and now it appears James will miss a good chunk of training camp. Frank Gore and rookie Carlos Hyde continue to be the fantasy running backs to own in San Francisco with Marcus Lattimore (knee) being a wildcard. Lattimore remains on the non-football-injury list.
Injury Kendall Hunter tears ACL, out for the season     -- Sat Jul 26 12:45 pm --

Injured during non-contact drill
Running back Kendall Hunter tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee Friday at practice, the team confirmed Saturday morning. Candidates to fill the 49ersí No. 2 tailback job are LaMichael James, Carlos Hyde, Jewell Hampton and Marcus Lattimore, whoís on the non-football-injury list but has been doing conditioning drills on a side field in camp. (San Jose Mercury News)

FF Today's Take: Hunter is a key part to the 49ers offense, able to spell Frank Gore on early downs as well as play on third downs in a receiving role. Hyde will be the favorite to become the No.2 running back but this injury might breathe some life into LaMichael James who had been rumored to be on the outs in San Francisco. Hunter averaged 80.5 touches the last two seasons.
