  • James recorded eight tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 20-19 win over the Titans. James tied for the team lead in tackles with Denzel Perryman, but the latter arguably came up with the game's second biggest play as the linebacker made a red-zone interception just before halftime, halting any chance at the Titans stealing away momentum. With Joey Bosa (foot) nearing a return following the team's Week 8 bye, James could be in position to capitalize on what figures to be an increase in turnovers to go along with his already healthy amount of tackles in his rookie campaign.

  • James registered five tackles (four solo) and a half sack in Sunday's 38-14 demolition of the Browns. It's difficult to understate James' role on the defense, as the rookie safety has already developed into arguably the team's top playmaker on the other side of the ball. Through six games, James has secured 36 tackles, 3.5 sacks, six passes defended and recorded an interception and remains one of the better IDP options around, particularly in leagues that award additional points for sacks or turnovers.

  • Chargers' Derwin James: Tallies five tackles
    By RotoWire Staff

    James accumulated five tackles (four solo) includng one tackle for a loss in Sunday's 26-10 win over the Raiders. It was a muted performance for James based on the lofty standards he set in the previous four weeks, as the rookie safety failed to record a turnover or sack for the first time this season. Given his playmaking tendencies, James is one of the better IDP options out there at the moment, and he should have plenty of opportunities to pick on fellow rookie Baker Mayfield when the Chargers travel to FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland for Week 6.

  • Chargers' Derwin James: Gets sack in win
    By RotoWire Staff

    James recorded seven tackles (five solo), two passes defensed and one sack in Sunday's 29-27 win over the 49ers. James proved again Sunday why he is worthy of a first-round draft selection, making his presence felt in the passing game while causing a 10-yard loss on his lone sack. The rookie safety has tremendous game speed, and his playmaking ability has made itself apparent throughout the first four weeks of the season. James has a divisional matchup against the Raiders in Week 5.

  • James tallied nine tackles (seven solo), one interception and one pass defended in Sunday's 35-23 loss to the Rams. Add yet another "first" to James' ledger, that being his first career interception. It's hard not to get excited about the first-year safety, as James broke beautifully on a red-zone pass from Jared Goff to tight end Gerald Everrett, stepping in front of the errant throw to record the pick. Perhaps the only mistake James has made through three weeks is returning the aforementioned interception out of the end zone, running out of bounds at the one-yard line. That mistake promptly came back to bite the Chargers, as the Rams blocked the ensuing punt four plays later for a touchdown. Still, with Joey Bosa (foot) nowhere to be found, James has been easily the best player on defense through the first three weeks of the season, leading the team in sacks (2), solo tackles (15) and tying for the team lead in interceptions. With C.J. Beathard likely to take over for the injured Jimmy Garoppolo next week, it seems likely James will continue his torrid pace against the 49ers.
