LaMichael James injury update: Does his questionable status matter in fantasy?

San Francisco 49ers running back LaMichael James (knee) is questionable for Sunday's home game against the Packers. He did not practice this week and could sit out.

Even if he's healthy, the Niners might not even play James at all. Kendall Hunter looks be be recovered from his Achilles injury from last season and Frank Gore enters this season at near 100 percent. James has a sprained MCL and has missed most of practice for two weeks.

Fantasy impact: James was a star in Oregon, but his NFL career has yet to take flight. The 49ers also took Marcus Lattimore in the 2013 NFL Draft, so he has some work to do in order to make a splash with the team. Fantasy owners can steer clear of James and he might not even get return duties.
