49ers' Stevie Johnson held to three catches in Week 10 win
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(11/9/14) 49ers wide receiver Steve Johnson caught all three of his targets during the 49ers’ 27-24 overtime win against the Saints in Week 10.
Johnson finished with 43 receiving yards on three receptions.
In Week 11, the 49ers play at the New York Giants.
Anquan Boldin leads 49ers receivers in Week 9 loss vs. Rams
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(11/2/14) 49ers wide receiver Anquan Boldin was featured in the passing game Sunday, recording a team-high six receptions and 93 yards while scoring the offense's only touchdown in his team's 13-10 loss to the Rams in Week 9.
Boldin drifted past the coverage as quarterback Colin Kaepernick scrambled on a second-quarter play, snagging a pass while wide open at the 10-yard line and racing into the end zone for the 27-yard score. It's the second time in three weeks he's managed to deliver at least 90 yards and a touchdown.
The rest of the team's passing attack was largely held at bay in the loss, with Steve Johnson catching three passes on five targets for 41 yards and Michael Crabtree managing just 40 yards while grabbing five of his nine targets. Tight end Vernon Davis could only deliver two catches for 19 yards on three targets, and no other receiver caught more than one pass.
The 49ers will hope to bounce back in Week 10 when they head to New Orleans to square off with the Saints.

Steve Johnson: 49ers receivers aren't a 'bunch of pansies'
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(10/30/14) 49ers wide receiver Steve Johnson has played the role of star receiver in the past and has had pretty good success in the role, totaling more than 1,000 yards in three straight seasons from 2010-12 with the Bills.
However, in his first year with the 49ers, he's competing for playing time and targets with a pretty deep group of receivers that include Anquan Boldin, Michael Crabtree and Brandon Lloyd.
Johnson, though, is content with the situation. His focus is helping the 49ers make the playoffs, which would result in Johnson's first playoff appearance in his seven-year career.
"No frustration at all," he said, per CSNBayArea.com. “"(The) only sense of frustration is being a competitor, you know, wanting to do more. But it ain’t like there’s a bunch of pansies in front of me.
"It’s cool to a certain extent. When we get in those situations, in the heat of the moment, of course, I’m a warrior. I’m ready to go out there. We got great guys out there on the field. You can’t be frustrated. It’s not going to look right."
49ers WR Steve Johnson making most of limited snaps
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(10/22/14) 49ers wideout Steve Johnson has played 31 percent of the team's offensive snaps, yet he ranks third on the team in catches (25) and receiving yards (315) and is tied for the team lead with three touchdown grabs, notes the San Francisco Chronicle. Colin Kaepernick has a sterling 127.8 passer rating when targeting Johnson, completing 25 of 31 throws, the report said.
Despite his success, Johnson might have a hard time earning more time because Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin are locked in as starters and Brandon Lloyd is a deep threat coaches want to get on the field, the paper said.
For now, the paper envisions Johnson continuing to split No. 3 receiver duties with Lloyd, who has played 38 percent of the snaps.

At the Fantasy Football Today blog, Chris Towers breaks down all the Fantasy-relevant playing time numbers from this past week.
|Steve Johnson was traded from the Bills to the 49ers during the NFL Draft, and he will try to resurrect his career in San Francisco. Johnson is coming off his worst season since 2009, but we're not expecting him to regain his form with the 49ers, who are loaded at receiver with Michael Crabtree, Anquan Boldin and Quinton Patton. Johnson will likely supplant Patton as the No. 3 receiver, but he will struggle to regain his form from 2010-12 when he was a consistent threat. Over that three-year span, Johnson had at least 76 catches, 1,000 yards and six touchdowns. But it will take a lot for him to reach those totals with the 49ers, and we don't recommend drafting Johnson in most standard leagues with anything more than a late-round flier.
