2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
In the “life isn’t fair” category, we present Kendall Hunter. Not much was expected of the 5’7, 199 pound rookie 4th round pick last season but he had a productive season, gaining 473 rushing yards and 195 receiving yards on 16 receptions while scoring twice. At season’s end, it appeared that Hunter had carved out a role as a 8-10 touches per game backup to Frank Gore. Then the offseason hit. Bam! The 49ers signed Brandon Jacobs. Bam! The 49ers shocked the football world by using a 2nd round pick on LaMichael James, essentially a Hunter clone. Whereas Hunter once appeared on the verge of being a must have handcuff to Gore and a potentially solid flex option, his fantasy value is now almost worthless, even in dynasty leagues.

News From The Past 90 Days
Hyde draws praise for work ethic, smarts     -- Thu Jul 31 5:30 pm --

Harbaugh compares rookie to Frank Gore
San Francisco HC Jim Harbaugh does not like to make comparisons. He often says someone gets diminished when two players are compared and contrasted. But, in this instance Harbaugh, made an exception. He praised running backs Frank Gore and Carlos Hyde in similar terms. Harbaugh spoke glowingly about Gore’s work ethic and understanding of the game. “Carlos gets football, understands football,” Harbaugh said, citing Roman. “It’s natural for him to understand the game, similar to Frank Gore. And we're seeing those things, and both are very good signs and bode well for us.” (CSN Bay Area)

FF Today's Take: This is a big step up for Hyde, whose work ethic was questioned up until last season at Ohio State. The second-round rookie is the frontrunner to win the backup job with Kendall Hunter out for the season and Marcus Lattimore being treated with kid gloves. Gore has been of an ironman since Harbaugh's arrival, but the 31-year-old showed signs of decline last season, so Hyde has a chance at redraft value this year.
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 49ers’ No. 2 tailback job are LaMichael James, Carlos Hyde, Jewell Hampton and Marcus Lattimore, who’s 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.
