Brandon Jacobs and Ted Ginn Jr missed another 49ers practice on Thursday. We break down the fantasy implications.

San Francisco running back Brandon Jacobs and wide receiver/kick and punt returner Ted Ginn, Jr. both missed another practice on Thursday while recovering from injuries. Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area believes both are doubtful to play on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers but the team has not issued any statement to that effect as of yet. Jacobs is expected to get goal-line and short-yardage carries this season, but Kendall Hunter could be taking his place there if he misses any time. If Ginn were to miss the game, expect Kyle Williams to return punts and Hunter to return kicks.

Fantasy Analysis: This is good news if you own Hunter or Frank Gore, but bad news if you own Brandon Jacobs although he is not worth a play at this time anyhow. This should also give a boost to Hunter owners in leagues where kick return yards are counted.
