According to teammate Anthony Dixon, the 49ers have rookie RB LaMichael James "doing Percy Harvin stuff" on the scout team.
"I watch him every day on the practice field, and he’s making plays, going up to get the ball," Dixon said. "They have him doing Percy Harvin stuff when we’re playing teams like that. ... I feel like he’s going to come in and make plays." James was a Harvin-like talent at Oregon, though he caught just 51 passes in three seasons. As an elite athlete in the 49ers' creative system, however, he'd be worth a gander in PPR leagues if he replaces Kendall Hunter as San Francisco's change-of-pace back. James has yet to be active this season.

Honestly with the emergence of smaller backs such as Spiller, Sproles, CJ2K, as well as the emergence of hybrid receivers such as Harvin, Cobb, and Hilton I think James is the backup to own in Frisco. This line can open some gaping holes as we've seen them do all season for Gore, holes that a guy like James can surely exploit....
If Frisco decides to rest Gore, anyone else see James being a factor down the stretch? Sure Jacobs will be the guy in the redzone, but I can definitely see Frisco using James in an expanded role going forward.

Perfect 3rd down type Rb... maybe a deep league flex in ppr leagues

jewell hampton might get playing time over him

With that said I think his 2012 value is about 0. Next year that should rise with Jacobs out of San Fran and Gore 50/50 to be out. He's obviously not going to start over Kendall Hunter but he could be one injury away from getting a lot of playing time.
I don't know how much upside is here though. The comparisons to Harvin are way too optimistic, I see him more as a Dexter McCluster type player or at best a Jacquizz Rodgers. Hopefully he gets some playing time but I don't see him ever being more than a bye week fill in type player IF he is used like McCluster in the passing game.
Hopefully I'm wrong though since I have him now haha.

Anyone think the 49er's will rest Gore in week 16 and let James get a bunch of carries?
I tend to think top-seeded teams (i.e. 1 and 2) tend to duke it out till the end if they know they have that bye week. If they can grab home field advantage throughout its a big deal.
Same reasoning attaches to Houston and NE at this point. Wouldn't be surprised to see Peyton play week 17 either.

Does James get 10+ offensive touches this week? I need alternatives with Sidney Rice out. James looked pretty good last week and with Jacobs banished and Kendall Hunter on IR, he's basically the #2 guy for carries. Got a big decision to make.
Too many questions involving touches if you ask me. Your taking a big chance that he gets enough carries to be productive in only his second time being active all season. A lot of questions for a playoff matchup.

What do you think the SF backfield will look like next season? Hunter and James are both on the wire in my keeper league... just trying to figure out if one is worth the investment.
