San Francisco 49ers general manager Trent Baalke said he believes in using multiple running backs that can do different things on offense. "I'm a big believer -- we are big believers -- in a three-headed approach," Baalke said. "In other words, having a group of backs that bring to the table something a little bit different than the other one so you can do a lot of different things. But also having those backs be able to do enough things the same so you don't become so predictable on game day." RBs Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter and LaMichael James likely will see playing time this season.
Fantasy Tip: All three running backs likely will receive playing time this season and could have fantasy value during the season. Gore likely will receive the majority of the carries and should be seen as a mid to weak No. 2 running back option. James and Hunter could be late-round fliers in drafts because of their expected roles on offense.

San Francisco 49ers RB Kendall Hunter (Achilles') is ahead of schedule in his recovery, and he has resumed running, according to a source close to the player. Hunter is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.
Fantasy Tip: With Frank Gore still starting, and the emergence of LaMichael James late last season, as well as the presence of Anthony Dixon, Hunter will have his work cut out for him trying to carve out of the piece of the pie for himself in 2013.

San Francisco 49ers RB LaMichael James might finally get his chance to shine as the change of pace back behind RB Frank Gore following the season-ending injury to RB Kendall Hunter (ankle). Teammate FS Donte Whitner likes what he has seen from James on the practice squad. "He's a guy similar to (New Orleans Saints RB Darren Sproles). He can carry the ball up inside. I know he's anxious to get out there and play," Whitner said Tuesday, Nov. 27.
