San Francisco 49ers RB LaMichael James (knee) will be inactive for Week 1 against the Green Bay Packers. He's dealing with a sprained medial collateral ligament and is expected to miss up to three weeks. RB Frank Gore will start with RB Kendall Hunter behind him. RB Anthony Dixon could see a bump in playing time.
Fantasy Tip: This isn't a surprise. James should probably be left to the waiver wire for now in more shallow leagues.

San Francisco 49ers RB Anthony Dixon is considered the No. 4 running back on the roster, and he has the ability to play fullback and special teams, which helps his cause. However, he will need to have a strong training camp and preseason to hold off the likes of RB Jewel Hampton and DJ Harper.

San Francisco 49ers RBs Anthony Dixon and Jewel Hampton are expected to compete for the No. 4 running back job during training camp. The competition may come down to special teams play.

San Francisco 49ers RB Anthony Dixon likely will make the roster this season if he shows that he is one of the team's best special teams players.

Even though San Francisco 49ers RB LaMichael James hasn't been active for any games this year, he may have the best shot to become the backup to RB Frank Gore. James and QB Colin Kaepernick ran a zone-read offense effectively together in the preseason, and James ran a similar offense in college at Oregon. However, James has spent almost all of his practice time on the scout team this year, and he hasn't had much experience in special teams, which could hurt his chances. RB Anthony Dixon has been active every game this year because he is vital to the special teams. RB Brandon Jacobs doesn't make any special teams contributions either, so if James is active over Dixon, the team will have two backup running backs who don't contribute on special teams.

San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore will continue to see the majority of touches with RB Kendall Hunter (Achilles') done for the year, and RBs Anthony Dixon, Brandon Jacobs, LaMichael James and Jewel Hampton are also available to pitch in. James may be the most intriguing because he provides the best change of pace to Gore. "He's a guy similar to (Saints running back Darren) Sproles. He can still carry the ball up inside. I know he's anxious to get out there and play," S Donte Whitner said.
