Last year the San Francisco 49ers had numerous contributions on both sides of the ball. One of the better and most pleasant surprises happened because of injury.
LaMichael James RB:
When Kendall Hunter went down with an injury the 49ers lost somebody who was averaging 5.2 yards per carry and was doing a great job backing up Frank Gore. Fortunately for the niners, they had someone on their bench who rushed for 5,082 yards and 53 touchdowns while attending Oregon. As the number two running he ended the year rushing for 125 yards and scored his only touchdown in the NFC Championship game against the Falcons. He is listed at 5 foot 9 but his explosiveness allows him to be a threat in the running, passing, and even as a return specialist. Some have compared the ability he possesses to change the pace of a game to that of a Darren Sproles so it will be interesting to see if he can improve and establish himself as the future in this offense.
Kyle Williams WR:

Reid is expected to play free safety covering over the top while Whitner plays a more traditional “in the box’ role.
The 49ers didn't trade up from No. 31 to 18 to select Reid and sit him on the bench.
San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Vic Fangio isn’t sold on cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha and wants to see more consistency.
It seems organization wise the feeling is mutual as they continue to flirt with free agent Eric Wright.
Asomugha’s first week in training camp has been up and down, and from the way Fangio expresses his thoughts, the cornerback needs to step it...
49ers wide receiver A.J. Jenkins was back at practice for the 49ers today after nursing a hamstring strain and is expected to play in this week’s preseason opener, according to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee.

After a devastating loss in Super Bowl XLVII, the San Francisco 49ers have to pick up the pieces this preseason. A lot of Super Bowl losers decline in the season following, but this is the 49ers we’re talking about.
They will bounce back, but they still have a few parts of their roster that have questions remaining. That’s why I’ve found five players this preseason you should...

According to Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee, San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh stated Sunday that the team is "assessing" Wright, after a failed physical voided a trade to San Francisco; he was waived by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last month.
While the 49ers offense is going to be a highly powerful, highly functioning machine in the running and passing game, the majority of their individual players aren’t really great fantasy bets. The San Francisco 49ers are going to try and spread the football, distributing it to several players, and have several weapons and options on the offensive side of the ball. This means...
The beginning of August signals the undeniably awesome fact that football is right around the corner. While there’s only one small way the 49ers can improve on last season’s outcome, there likely is a way that you can improve on the outcome of your fantasy football season.
