Marcus Lattimore practicing through soreness

Sacramento Bee - [Full Article]

On Monday, 49ers RB Marcus Lattimore said that he was experiencing soreness in both legs, including his right one. He saw this as a positive sign. “I'm excited about it,” he said. “About six, seven months ago, it would just be my left leg that would be sore. Now i'm balanced on both legs. Feeling good, man.”

Lattimore had been going full speed prior to the current camp. “The days that he was full speed, (he) looked very good,” HC Jim Harbaugh said. Harbaugh also said Lattimore was noticebly better than he was during the three-week window in which he was permitted to practice last season. “Again, he's improved to where he was the last time we saw him in those practices in the end of the season,” Harbaugh said. “Yes, he's quick and faster."

On Friday, Cam Inman released video of Lattimore at practice.

Fantasy Impact: 

There is a lot of interest surrounding Lattimore, and rightfully so, but from a redraft perspective, he's still behind Frank Gore and Kendall Hunter, and the team drafted Carlos Hyde in the 2nd round Barring an injury to Gore and/or Hunter, it's not likely that Lattimore will make a significant impact in 2014. He and Hyde will vie for dynasty value for now.
