Richie James catches TD in Giants debut

Richie James caught three of his five targets for 44 yards and a touchdown in New York's 23-21 preseason win over the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Impact

James has impressed the coaching staff throughout training camp and continued to look impressive in the team's first preseason game on Thursday. The fifth-year pro made a couple of highlight plays, including a 26-yard gain on a ricocheted pass and a 7-yard TD reception. James will look to continue his success and solidify the WR5 role over Darius Slayton and Collin Johnson as the preseason progresses.

Richie James Jr. goes without a catch in Week 16

Richie James Jr. failed to bring in his only target during the 49ers 20-12 win over the Cardinals in Week 16.

Fantasy Impact

James is a streaky player who also offers a very low floor and Saturday was a great example of that. He's only caught four passes over the last two weeks and he won't be a recommended fantasy option against the Seahawks in Week 17.

Richie James Jr. catches four passes in Week 15

Richie James Jr. hauled in 4-of-7 targets for 56 yards during the 49ers' 33-41 loss to the Cowboys in Week 15.

Fantasy Impact

James Jr. was second only to Brandon Aiyuk with seven targets in this one as the 49ers' threw 43 passes. He has been pretty quiet since his 9/184/1 blowup game vs. the Packers last month but should continue seeing more volume with Deebo Samuel (hamstring) out of the lineup.

Richie James Jr. catches all three of his targets in Week 14

Richie James hauled in all three of his targets during the 49ers' 15-23 loss to the WFT in Week 14.

Fantasy Impact

James was not targeted in Week 13 with the 49ers' fully healthy at receiver, but saw some extra run with Deebo Samuel (hamstring) going down. James Jr. offers big play potential but likely won't see the kind of volume needed for weekly fantasy production in this offense. He should be a WR5/6 for a Week 15 date against the Cowboys.

Richie James Jr. not targeted in 49ers' MNF loss

Richie James did not field a target or touch during the 49ers' 24-34 loss to the Bills' on Monday Night Football.

Fantasy Impact

James wasn't seen in the passing game on a night where Nick Mullens threw 39 passes. With Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk fully healthy, James is rendered an afterthought in this 49ers' passing game.
