Maybe this means he's about to take over punt return and kick return duties from Kyle Williams.
He'll get his final shot at return duties.

Has the 49ers.com depth chart always listed James as the #1 returner? If not, it does now.

they're slacking on the website maintenance this season. The DC still has Harper and Cunningham listed but they aren't on the roster page and have kept that page up to date.

Does it list Kyle Williams as "scrub"?

I hope so!!
Sure would love to see Hunter and LaMichael look more like Reggie Bush and
Kyle Williams look more like Wes Welker.

I have no clue why they didn't put LMJ as a returner from the start. I remember last year in New England, his return swung the momentum back to us.
has LMJ ever shown he can catch the ball consistently?

I don't know. My only guess is that they knew he wouldn't be used much as a RB and they didn't want to take up an active spot only for return duties. KW was going to play WR (either #2 or #3) regardless, so maybe they thought having him take over returns would save that one active roster spot.

Good point

Well no, but, he's short, black and fast, so we should automatically assume he possesses all of the ability and strengths of Darren Sproles.

He caught over 50 passes in 3 seasons at Oregon, saw a lot of their games and most receptions I saw were swings and slants, good hands, catching the ball with his hands, arms extended...last year in the few games he played, he had 3 in reg season (all went for 1st downs) and 2 post-season. I believe there is plenty enough skill there to utilize him as a receiver out of various formations, but it will take HaRo giving him the chance.
Dixon might be the odd man out. I think Dixon will get cut and LMJ becomes the 3rd string RB, and Moody takes over Dixon's spot on special teams.

That actually sounds like a pretty reasonable and likely scenario. Dixon's value to the team is almost nothing really. He's decent on ST's, but not great, and he doesn't add any value as a back.
