The San Francisco 49ers selected running back LaMichael James with the No. 61 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.
James is coming off a stellar career at Oregon, and displayed exceptional instincts, quickness and balance - but his slight frame may limit him to a complementary role in the NFL. And his fantasy stock looks to be low while fighting for touches behind Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter and free agent signee Brandon Jacobs. He is merely a late-round flier as a rookie in standard-sized leagues, and is a late-round target for keeper leagues as well.
BEST OF MAXIM
From the sound of it, Randy Moss isn’t the only freakishly athletic person in his family. We have all seen the amazing things that Moss is capable of on the field when he puts some effort in, and from the look of it the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Moss’ daughter, Sydney Moss, is a high school basketball star at Boone County high in Kentucky. According to WLWT, she...
According to Cam Inman of the MercuryNews.com, San Francisco 49ers general manager Trent Baalke indicated that they reached out to Randy Moss last season.
“The response was, ‘Not interested. Done. Hanging the cleats up.’ So we just let it go. Obviously Randy didn’t come back (in 2011) and sat out the year,” said Baalke.
When Moss “retired” last season, I really think...
When you’re as close to a Super Bowl berth as the San Francisco 49ers were in 2011, you need to add some impact players in the draft to push you over the top. Unfortunately, the 49ers failed to add a single starter, instead settling for developmental prospects who will do little to help in 2012.
How does James fit in San Fran?
A.J. Jenkins was a reach in the late 1st-round and...
San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh is very familiar with running back LaMichael James, who he faced off against in the Pac-12 when he was the head coach at Stanford.
One thing in particular Harbaugh remembers is how tough it was to stop James inside the red zone, where the 49ers offense had problems last season.
“Just the unstoppable nature of him at the goal line,”...
According to Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com, wide receiver Randy Moss has reported to the San Francisco 49ers offseason program after being excused by head coach Jim Harbaugh to work out on his own for the first week.
The Moss showed up this week since the player will have the opportunity to get on the field with the coaches and go over the playbook. So it’s vital for a new player...
The San Francisco 49ers pulled wide receiver A.J. Jenkins from the board with the No. 30 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.
Jenkins was viewed as a reach, namely with Stephen Hill, Alshon Jeffery, Brian Quick and Rueben Randle still on the board - but Jenkins should still develop into an explosive weapon for a San Francisco receiving corps that was a glaring weakness for an...
Randy Moss is one of the most prolific & physically gifted players in NFL history. Despite his gifts, he sometimes checks out mentally, however, which was the case last year as he floundered with 3 different teams. The 49ers, who came extremely close to a Super Bowl berth, took a shot on Moss to add [...]
The 49ers surprised observers last Thursday night when they selected Illinois receiver A.J. Jenkins with the 30th overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. But now we know that if the Niners hadn’t snagged Jenkins at No. 30, the Rams probably would have taken him at No. 33.
Yahoo! Sports’ Michael Silver was actually in the war room with Jeff Fisher and Les Snead in St. Louis last...
It didn’t take long for 2nd round pick LaMichael James to reach out to his soon to be teammates. This one in particular caught my attention, because if things go according to plan the 49ers backfield will feature both these backs. That is once Frank Gore has nothing left in the tank.
@KendallHunter32 what’s good east Texas!?
