Though none of the coaches have specifically said anything to him regarding his potential responsibilities, James has been spending extra time at practice working on his punt returning, CSN Bay Area reports. “You just got to be ready to go,” James said Thursday. "When I get on the field, I have to take advantage of my opportunities. And that's what I’m going to do."

49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh has already stated that he wants to get James involved more, both on offense and on special teams. With Frank Gore running like he's discovered the Fountain of Youth and Kendall Hunter looking solid as the primary backup, James is looking to make his mark anywhere he can. Regular return man Kyle Williams has struggled lately, fumbling a kickoff and muffing a punt during the win over Jacksonville just before the bye, so James could see an opportunity or two in the Week 10 matchup with the Panthers. His fantasy value is still extremely minimal right now, but the extra work in practice is going to reflect very well on him in the eyes of his coach.
49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said Tuesday that he wants to get James back in "the mix" during the second half of the season, Steve Corkran of the Contra Costa Times reports.

2013

Subscribe now to see our 2013 outlook.

2012

Over his three years at Oregon, James totaled 5,665 yards with 57 touchdowns. The Ducks offense was anything but pro style, so there will be a major adjustment, but it’s hard to argue with that production. He’ll add much needed speed to the 49ers offense, but James also fights for yards after contact. Still, at 5-8, 194, and viewed as a “luxury” pick in the second round with Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter and Brandon Jacobs also on the roster, James will be used mostly as a change-of-pace back as a rookie, likely becoming more of a presence on punt returns down the road as well.
