49ers RB Frank Gore one of two probables for Week 10
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(11/7/14) 49ers running back Frank Gore (hip) and nose tackle Ian Williams (shin) were the only players labeled probable for Sunday's clash against the Saints in Week 10.
Tramaine Brock (toe), Brandon Lloyd (hamstring) and Quinton Dial (eye) were all limited participants in Friday's practice and ruled questionable. Dan Skuta (ankle) and Patrick Willis (toe) were unable to practice, but were still deemed questionable for Sunday.
49ers WR Brandon Lloyd questionable to return Week 9
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(11/2/14) 49ers wide receiver Brandon Lloyd is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Rams due to a hamstring injury, the team announced. Floyd caught his only target before the injury, gaining 10 yards on the play.
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."
Hard to trust any 49ers receivers right now
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(10/20/14) Though the 49ers have moved the ball well through the air this season, it hasn't led to much consistent success for their wide receivers, and that may not change much moving forward.
Anquan Boldin leads the team in yards, but has reached double figures in Fantasy scoring just once this season, in Week 6. He had 50 yards to finish third on the team in Week 7's blowout loss to the Broncos, behind both Steve Johnson and Brandon Lloyd. In fact, Lloyd and Johnson are both averaging more than 40 yards receiving per game, despite routinely finishing third and fourth on the team in snaps played among wide receivers.
The elephant in the room is Michael Crabtree, who should be the team's best option in the passing game. And yet, he has just seven more yards than Johnson on nearly 20 more targets. Crabtree has never really been a big-play receiver, but there is reason to think his current yards per catch number of 10.1 will rise close to his career mark of 12.7, which would obviously improve his value.
At this point, it is awfully tough to rely on any of the 49ers receivers, even if the team is putting the ball in the air 33.1 times per game, an increase of more than seven from last year. Crabtree might make for a nice buy-low candidate for Fantasy, but there also may not be much room for him to breakout until one or more players takes a back seat.
|Brandon Lloyd is back in the NFL this season after sitting out 2013, and he's hoping a return to the 49ers can revive his career. Lloyd last played with the Patriots in 2012, and he was a disappointment for Fantasy owners with 74 catches for 911 yards and four touchdowns. He really has just one outstanding season with the Broncos in 2010 when he had 77 catches for 1,448 yards and 11 touchdowns. Lloyd, 33, started his career in San Francisco in 2003 and played three seasons. He will compete for a reserve receiver spot this year behind Michael Crabtree, Anquan Boldin, Steve Johnson and Quinton Patton. Even if Lloyd makes the final roster he would have minimal Fantasy value. Ignore him in all leagues on Draft Day.
