49ers wide receiver AJ Jenkins might start the season on the inactive list. We break down the fantasy implications.
49ers wide receiver and 2012 first round pick A.J. Jenkins could be so far down on the depth chart that he may open the season watching on the sidelines. San Francisco added Randy Moss and Mario Manningham in free agency to what they already had in Michael Crabtree, Ted Ginn, Jr., and Kyle Williams. The 49ers also drafted Jenkins 30th overall, but he hasn't impressed enough yet to move himself up the depth chart and it seems unlikely that San Francisco would have more than five receivers active on game day.
Fantasy Implications: It's rare to see a wide receiver or running back drafted in the first round that's undraftable, but at this point that's what Jenkins is. All of the new weapons could push down their own value individually, but it will be interesting to see if it makes quarterback Alex Smith a sleeper for 2012. All I know for sure right now is that Jenkins is not worth touching unless you are in some really deep dynasty league.
