Richie James Jr. Suffers Broken Wrist

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Richie James Jr. (wrist) broke a bone in his wrist while training recently and is likely to be sidelined at least two months, according to sources. This comes after it was announced that Deebo Samuel suffered a broken foot and could be a candidate for the Physically Unable to Perform list to begin the 2020 season. James could be in that boat as well and be forced to miss the first six games of the season. The 24-year-old would've had an increased opportunity for playing time with Samuel sidelined early in the season after catching six passes for 165 yards and a score last year. James was mostly used on special teams, though, and won't be much of a fantasy option now in deeper leagues. San Fran's receiving room is thinning out quickly, giving rookie Brandon Aiyuk, Kendrick Bourne, Jalen Hurd, Dante Pettis and Trent Taylor more opportunities early in the year.

Marquise Goodwin And Richie James Can't Be Trusted

San Francisco 49ers wide receivers Marquise Goodwin and Richie Jamesare not optimal fantasy options in Week 2 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Goodwin and James recorded just one catch apiece in Week 1, with James capitalizing on his grab for a 39-yard score. Goodwin played 74 percent of the snaps in Week 1 but may cede opportunities to Dante Pettis, who played just two snaps. With his big-play upside, Goodwin is a volatile WR5 with an extremely low floor. Despite the touchdown, James played in 38 percent of the snaps in Week 1 and should not be trusted in any lineups.

Richie James Scores Only Niners Offensive Touchdown

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Richie Jamesscored a 39-yard touchdown in Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. James saw two targets but made his only grab count in the third quarter. The Niners passed for just 166 yards on Sunday and all receivers got in on the action, neutralizing the fantasy impact for any single player. James is filling in for Trent Taylor (foot) and is mostly a backup option in the passing game. He won't merit much fantasy buzz in Week 2.
