James recorded seven tackles (five solo), two passes defended 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 recorded eight tackles (seven solo), including a sack, and one pass defensed in Sunday's 31-20 win over the Bills.
James has now recorded two sacks in as many games. His eight tackles were a marked improvement over his three-tackle performance in Week 1. Thus far, the first-round safety has showcased the talent that made him a top-20 selection. Looking ahead, James and the rest of the Chargers defense will have their hands full in next week's tilt against the Rams.
James record three tackles (two solo), two passes defended and a sack in Sunday's 38-28 loss to the Chiefs.
James was one of just four players on defense to play every snap, quickly showing off his first-round pedigree by recording the Chargers first and only sack of the afternoon. After winning a spirited battle for the starting free safety job in the preseason, James appears poised to add another level of play-making ability to an already well-respected secondary. James, along with strong safety Jahleel Addae, may be on the cusp of being regular IDP options and should have plenty of opportunities to prove themselves in Week 2 against the lowly Bills.
James has been working with the starters, rotating between both safety spots, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports.
After being sidelined with a hamstring injury to begin training camp, James appears to be accumulating nicely in the secondary, rotating with nominal starting strong safety Jahleel Addae in an effort to give both players additional reps at each position. While Rayshawn Jenkins remains in contention for a major role, it would be a surprise if the 2018 first-round pick wasn't operating as the starting FS or SS by Week 1.
Selected 17th overall by the Chargers in this year's draft, James' training camp debut was delayed due to a slight hamstring injury. With the concern behind him, he can focus on locking down the starting free safety job within a productive secondary.
