49ers' Richie James: Won't play Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James is inactive due to coach's decision for Sunday's game against Minnesota, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

James is near or at the bottom of the 49ers depth chart at wide receiver. With the team mostly healthy for Week 1, he draws the short straw and won't get to suit up. He'll have a better chance to play in the coming weeks when the team faces a few injuries, but he won't likely see much time on offense unless there are injuries to the position group.

49ers' Richie James: Likely earns roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James should have a spot on the 53-man roster, according to Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area.

The rookie seventh-round pick caught seven of eight targets for 80 yards in Thursday's exhibition against the Chargers, finishing the preseason with a 15-192-1 receiving line. Taylor's emergence means the 49ers likely likely have just one spot left for either Kendrick Bourne, Aldrick Robinson or Aaron Burbridge (hamstring). At the top of the depth chart, Marquise Goodwin, Pierre Garcon and Trent Taylor are locked in as the regular group for three-wide sets, with Dante Pettis (knee) perhaps getting some chances to mix in. James could be a healthy inactive Week 1 in Minnesota.

49ers' Richie James: Gets some first-team work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James lined up at as a slot receiver with the first-team offense at the tail end of practice Saturday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

The seventh-round pick got his first taste of action with the starters, drawing praise from head coach Kyle Shanahan regarding his toughness and separation skills. James is an undersized (5-foot-9), but toolsy, receiver who totaled 1,964 yards and a combined 16 touchdowns in 2016 with Middle Tennessee (spent most of 2017 season injured). The 21-year-old is currently competing for a backup receiver/special teams role in camp, but he would likely land on the practice squad if he doesn't make the 53-man roster.
