49ers | Randy Moss not an option

Wed, 22 May 2013 17:12:45 -0700

San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh said the team isn't considering re-signing WR Randy Moss after learning that WR Michael Crabtree (Achilles') tore his Achilles' Wednesday, May 22. Harbaugh said the team is intrigued with the depth of young receivers they have on roster, and they are looking forward to them stepping up to the task. WR A.J. Jenkins, the team's 2012 first-round pick, will have a chance to make an impact in his second year. Jenkins has spent the offseason adding muscle and working with QB Colin Kaepernick.

Fantasy Tip: Look out for Jenkins as a late-round pick this summer. With Crabtree out, it's possible he could become the team's No. 2 receiver behind Anquan Boldin if he beats out Mario Manningham. Kaepernick proved last year that he can make the receiving unit in San Fran valuable.

NFL | Randy Moss' future undecided

Thu, 16 May 2013 13:07:00 -0700

Free-agent WR Randy Moss (49ers) is still undecided if he will play football this season. There was reportedly interest in Moss a few months ago, although nothing has transpired since. Moss had only 434 yards last season.

Fantasy Tip: Moss is very close to the end of his career, and he might just decide to call it quits if he doesn't have much interest out there. If he does latch on with a team, he probably won't be worth drafting unless you're in an extremely deep league.

Moss added that his stint with the Titans left him doubting his future in the NFL.

San Francisco 49ers WR Randy Moss maintained his position that he is the best wide receiver to ever play the game. When asked about his stats compared to former NFL WR Jerry Rice, Moss said he didn't have the luxury of spending nearly 14 full seasons with former NFL QBs Joe Montana and Steve Young. "I wouldn't base (being the greatest) off (stats) because if I had two Hall of Fame quarterbacks, where would my numbers be?" Moss said. "I worked with one for a few years, and that's Tom Brady. Give me Tom Brady for the next five, six years, and you'll see where my numbers would be..."

49ers | Randy Moss a fan of Colin Kaepernick

Thu, 13 Dec 2012 06:15:55 -0800

San Francisco 49ers WR Randy Moss has been impressed with QB Colin Kaepernick this season, particularly his ability to lead. "I think his ability to be able to come off the bench and lead a team, I think that's most important," Moss said. "... I think Kap's been able to come in and just lead us as a whole unit. Anytime a guy can come in and lead like that, and I don't mean verbally - but leading by example - is what we us as football players look for in a player. Especially in a quarterback. So I really just compliment his leadership and going out there and leading our offense up and down the field."

49ers | A.J. Jenkins unlikely to see much PT

Thu, 29 Nov 2012 12:41:32 -0800

San Francisco 49ers WR A.J. Jenkins would have to serve as the team's slot receiver in three-receiver formats in order to see much playing time, which is unlikely. WRs Michael Crabtree, Mario Manningham and Randy Moss are ahead of him, and Crabtree and Manningham are capable of playing the slot. Crabtree has lined up 96 times in the slot and Manningham has been there 41 snaps. They rank second and third in average yards from the slot among players with at least 40 plays in that position. Jenkins is unlikely to surpass Moss for usage in three-receiver sets.
