49ers | LaMichael James adds muscle

San Francisco 49ers RB LaMichael James added 10 pounds of leg muscle during the offseason, and he has been more explosive during spring practices. He is expected to be better in pass blocking situations, and he already has a good rapport with QB Colin Kaepernick. James should see plenty of time in the offense, and he has been improved as a punt returner, too.

Fantasy Tip: In fantasy leagues which reward individual return yardage, James will have some added value. However, unless Kendall Hunter (Achilles') struggles to re-gain his form, or Frank Gore suffers some sort of an injury which keeps him out of game action, the fantasy ceiling for James is rather limited.
