Return specialist Ted Ginn is questionable for Week 1. We break down the fantasy implications.

San Francisco 49ers WR/PR Ted Ginn (ankle) is officially listed as questionable for Week 1 against the Green Bay Packers, and is unlikely to play at all. Ginn missed three straight practices this week with an ankle injury suffered in the preseason. Kyle Williams is expected to handle return duties in his absence.

Fantasy Impact: Ginn has little hope of ever being a fantasy contributor outside very deep leagues, but his return skills are a nice perk for Niners D/ST owners and leagues that score individual return yards. Still, don't expect him to play this week, and he could be a question mark for Week 2 as well.
