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.
Not used on offense

October 28, 2019
James did not receive a target in Sunday's 51-13 win over Carolina.
ANALYSIS
James was limited to return duties for the third time over San Francisco's last four contests. The 49ers acquired veteran wideout Emmanuel Sanders via a trade this week, which pushes the 24-year-old even further down the receiver depth chart. James is not a standard fantasy option heading into a Thursday Night Football matchup against Arizona.

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.
