James tallied 12 tackles (nine solo) during Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Vikings.
James registered his third double-digit tackle game Sunday and defended one pass attempt. The safety leads the team in snaps and tackles per game, making him a top option in fantasy leagues. James ranks first among all safeties in tackles and is tied for fourth with three forced fumbles through nine games. Although the 25-year-old safety has essentially missed the past two seasons with injuries, his strong defensive performance makes him irreplaceable.
