49ers shopping LaMichael James


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/17/2014) The 49ers are looking to trade running back LaMichael James in advance of next month's NFL Draft, reports the Sacramento Bee.

Meanwhile, James is aware of the trade rumors, apparently for a while now, since he tweeted Wednesday "when old news becomes new news" following the report.

James, a second-round pick in 2012, finds himself behind Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter and perhaps Marcus Lattimore on the depth chart at running back this season. James served as the team's primary returner last year, but he wants a bigger role since he carried the ball just 12 times in 2013.


Report: LaMichael James could be on trading block


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/9/2014) With Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter and Marcus Lattimore expected to be part of the 49ers' backfield, running back LaMichael James could find himself on the trading block this summer, reports CSNBayArea.com. If the 49ers want to move James, however, "they must have a plan for someone else in the return game," the report said.

James returned 23 punts for 251 yards and 12 kickoffs for 321 yards.


LaMichael James works past neck injury


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/19/2014) 49ers backup running back LaMichael James worked past a neck injury in Sunday's NFC Championship game against the Seahawks.

James got hit on his neck and lost his helmet on a muffed punt in the first half. He missed a portion of the second quarter before returning to field a kick with 5:47 left in the first half. He had one carry for no gain in the team's final series of the season, which led to a Seattle interception. It was his only offensive contribution in a 23-17 loss.

LaMichael James providing spark in return game


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/8/2014) 49ers running back LaMichael James didn't get a carry in the playoff win at Green Bay, but he made an impact as a returner. James returned three kickoffs for 78 yards, including a critical 37-yarder, and returned two punts for 20 yards.

"A very admirable job," coach Jim Harbaugh said. "A blue-collar effort on his part. Catching the balls in the elements and the wind and the factors that were there. I thought he did a great job and was able to set up a 37-yard kickoff return to help us answer the scoring drive of the Packers. He was rock solid.”


49ers get contributions from role players Week 17


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Quinton Patton caught two of three passes for 34 yards and had one carry for a gain of 26 yards, which was good enough to lead the team in rushing. Kendall Hunter had two carries for 13 yards while Anthony Dixon rushed for minus-5 yards on two carries and caught two passes for 27 yards. Offensive lineman Joe Staley also had one catch for a 14-yard gain while LaMichael James caught his only targeted pass for 12 yards. Garrett Celek was targeted once but finished without a grab.

Hunter broke for a 4-yard run late in the fourth quarter for his longest gain of the night. He had eight carries for 12 yards (1.5 yards per carry). Dixon rushed for 13 yards on three carries.

Fellow running back LaMichael James was barely involved, as he failed to receive a carry in the running game. In the passing game, he finished without a catch despite being targeted once. Tight end Vance McDonald caught his only targeted pass from Colin Kaepernick for a 23-yard gain.

The 49ers will host the Rams in Week 13.

LaMichael James looking at an expanded role


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/8/2013) San Francisco running back LaMichael James could be looking at an expanded role Week 10 against the Panthers, according to the Sacramento Bee

James has been taking more punt-return reps during recent practices, and head coach Jim Harbaugh has been talking about finding a role for James in the past few weeks. Kyle Williams hasn't been a big play return man for the team, and James was utilized as a returner in college. While James hasn't been told he'll be taking over, it looks like he might get some opportunities sooner rather than later.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

"His development has been fine," Harbaugh said, per CSN Bay Area. "He’ll be back playing. I know the talk about insurance and etc. It’s no slight to LaMichael. LaMichael is very good player. And he’s a very valued member of our team.

"(I) let LaMichael know he’s a valued guy around here and has a big role for our football team. We definitely all value LaMichael as a backup running back -- like a two. And there’s going to come a time like last year when he’s fully in the mix and depended on. And that time will come again."
