2019 Fantasy Outlook
James began the 2018 season buried on the depth chart, seeing just one target through the first eight games of the season. As the 49ers quickly fell out of contention, they gave their seventh-round pick a look in the slot in addition to regular kick return duties. The speedy wideout made a couple of big plays before season's end, but was otherwise a non-factor in fantasy (nine catches for 130 yards and a score). With a slew of new wideouts in camp, James will have to really stand out to secure a roster spot. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a four-year, $2.54 million contract with the 49ers in May of 2018.
Sticks to special teams
WRSan Francisco 49ers
October 14, 2019
James did not receive a target in Sunday's 20-7 win over the Rams.
ANALYSIS
James remained exclusive to the special teams unit for the second consecutive week. The 24-year-old may have an opportunity to re-enter the receiving corps after Deebo Samuel (quadriceps) suffered an injury late in this contest. Kendrick Bourne (who had a catch Sunday) could also enter the fray, but neither wideout provides the upside of the receiver he could potentially replace, especially in a run-heavy offense. It's probably safe to leave James on waivers heading into Week 7.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
James was selected with the 49ers' final pick in the 2018 draft, but the playmaking ability he flashed with Middle Tennessee State could land him a specialist role right off the bat. If the 5-9 receiver doesn't make the cut, he likely would start the year on the practice squad while he waits for an opportunity to present itself.
