Richie James | 49ers WR

The 49ers placed Richie James Jr. (hamstring) on injured reserve.

James was placed on IR to make room for the official signing of veteran receiver Mohamed Sanu. James should be back after three games spent on the COVID-shortened injured reserve.

Richie James | 49ers WR

Richie James (hamstring) officially did not practice today.

It's only Wednesday, but James might have a difficult time getting ready for Sunday's Week 2 matchup against the Jets. We'll let you know if he's able to hit the practice field by Friday.

Richie James | 49ers WR

The 49ers are activated Richie James Jr. off the NFI list.

James is expected to be ready for Week 1, and he's an interesting player to watch given the injuries San Francisco is dealing with in the receiving corps. James will start the season on the waiver wire in most fantasy leagues.

Richie James | 49ers WR

Richie James Jr. was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

James is among the over a dozen players that have been placed on the new list as veterans report to training camp today and tomorrow. James already has solid chemistry with quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, but he'll look to get off the reserve/COVID-19 list and back into the mix soon.

Richie James | 49ers WR

Richie James Jr. suffered a broken wrist.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo says James is expected to miss at least two months with the injury. We would expect James will be ready to go for Week 1, but he's in a competitive Niners receiving corps and could struggle to get consistent playing time on offense if he misses too much time this summer during camp. From a fantasy perspective, James is now off the radar for most redraft leagues.

Richie James | 49ers WR

Richie James catches first career touchdown in Week 17

James caught three passes for 32 yards and a touchdown against the Rams, with the score marking the first of the rookie receiver's career. The seventh-rounder from Middle Tennessee State ends his first NFL season with nine receptions for 130 yards and one touchdown. He'll look to carve out a bigger role in 2019.

Richie James | 49ers WR

Richie James Jr. catches one pass in Week 16.

James gained four yards on his lone Week 16 reception. James is not a highly-recommended fantasy option nat the moment.

Richie James | 49ers WR

Richie James loses fumble in loss to the Seahawks.

James didn't catch either of his targets, but he turned it over on a punt return in a 43-16 defeat. The rookie isn't on the fantasy radar in redraft leagues.

Richie James | 49ers WR

Richie James catches two passes against the Bucs.

James gained 27 yards on his two receptions, the same stat line as teammate Kendrick Bourne. Like Bourne, James doesn't need to be owned in standard-sized fantasy leagues.

Richie James | 49ers WR

Richie James catches two passes against the Raiders.

James gained 60 yards on his two receptions in the Niners' Thursday night win. He had a long gain of 53 yards on a quick slant where he easily be his defender at the line of scrimmage and was basically wide-open for an easy catch-and-run. James is contributing in real life, but he's not a highly-recommended fantasy option right now.

Richie James | 49ers WR

Richie James doesn't catch a pass in Week 6.

James was thought to have a chance to do some damage with Trent Taylor (back) out of the lineup, but he didn't draw a target against the Packers. The Niners threw just 23 passes in the game, though. James is off the fantasy radar at the moment.

Richie James | 49ers WR

Richie James catches one pass against the Niners.

James was targeted one time in the Week 5 loss, gaining seven yards on his lone reception. James is not a recommended fantasy option right now.

Richie James | 49ers WR

The 49ers have selected Middle Tennessee wide receiver Richie James with the 240th pick (seventh round) of the 2018 NFL Draft.

James is an interesting prospect because of his ability with the ball in his hands, but he was injured for much of 2017, which could have caused him to last until the 240th pick. The small-school receiver will look to earn a roster spot in camp and could provide value as a return man, though second-round pick Dante Pettis might have that role locked down already. James is unlikely to make a fantasy impact in 2018.
