49ers' pass catchers share very small pie in loss vs. Seahawks


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/28/2014) There wasn't much offense to go around for the 49ers' wide receivers and tight ends in the team's 19-3 loss to the Seahawks in Week 13, with wide receiver Steve Johnson leading the receiving unit with three catches for just 28 yards.

Running back Carlos Hyde led the team with 38 receiving yards, but there was simply no offense to speak of for the 49ers on Thanksgiving. Wide receiver Anquan Boldin caught three of his five targets for just 18 yards, while teammate Michael Crabtree managed just 10 yards on three catches of his own. Tight end Vernon Davis kicked in two receptions for 13 yards.

The 49ers will hope for a big bounce-back performance in Week 14 against the Raiders.


49ers' Stevie Johnson held to three catches in Week 10 win

(11/9/2014) 49ers wide receiver Steve Johnson caught all three of his targets during the 49ers’ 27-24 overtime win against the Saints in Week 10.

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
(11/2/2014) 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
(10/30/2014) 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 | Senior Analyst
(10/22/2014) 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.


Hard to trust any 49ers receivers right now


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2014) 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. 


49ers WR Steve Johnson scores touchdown in Week 7 loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2014) 49ers wide receiver Steve Johnson caught five passes for a team-high 79 yards and one touchdown in his team's 42-17 loss to the Broncos in Week 7.

Johnson hauled in a four-yard score in the back of the end zone with only 11 seconds left in the first half to send the 49ers into halftime with a 21-10 deficit. The Broncos took over from there, scoring three touchdowns in the third quarter. Johnson has reached the end zone in three of his last four games, and he's up to 25 receptions, 315 yards and three scores on the season. The 49ers have a bye in Week 8 before facing the Rams the following week.


49ers announce inactives for Week 7 vs. Broncos


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
