Brandon Jacobs is questionable for Week 2 against the Lions. We break down the fantasy implications.

San Francisco 49ers RB Brandon Jacobs (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions. Jacobs was inactive for Week 1 against the Packers, and after missing all three practices it's not likely that he'll be ready for Week 2 either.

Fantasy Impact: If Jacobs can't go, look for Kendall Wright to spell Frank Gore once again. Hunter had a respectable showing last week, getting 41 yards on nine attempts in just 15 snaps. Jacobs is a shell of the fantasy player that peaked with 1,089 and 15 touchdowns in 2008, but he should be a viable goal-line back once he's healthy.
