Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 7 vs WAS (1 / 1 / 40 / 0 rec)

James saw the field far more than usual, not because of Marquise Goodwin's in-game injury, but instead because San Francisco used three wide receivers on significantly more snaps (51 percent) than they usually do (35 percent). He made the most of this opportunity, producing the 49ers' longest gain of the day, a 40-yarder that was 10 yards of catch and 30 yards of run. On the play, James faked an out route from the left slot, pivoting towards a wide-open middle. That soft spot in Washington's zone, coupled with a bad angle by safety Troy Apke made a long gain academic. It should also be noted that, in his usual job of primary punt returner, James nearly broke free on both of his opportunities.

2019 Week 1 vs TB (2 / 1 / 39 / 1 rec)

James served as San Francisco's slot receiver in place of the injured Trent Taylor. His 39-yard touchdown gave the 49ers a lead they would never relinquish. On the play, James ran a delayed wheel route from the left slot against cornerback M.J. Stewart. His initial stutter step threw Stewart off balance, thereby gaining several steps worth of separation. From there, it was an easy catch downfield and jog into the endzone. One demerit for James was that he committed a completely unnecessary holding penalty that nullified a 49ers touchdown on a drive where they ended up having to settle for a field goal.
