San Francisco 49ers WRs Anquan Boldin and Michael Crabtree are considered the unquestioned starters, but after that the depth chart battles are wide open. WR Mario Manningham (knee) will be trying to hold off challenges from WR A.J. Jenkins, rookie WR Quinton Patton and WR Kyle Williams (knee). WRs Ricardo Lockette, Chad Hall, Joseph Hastings, Marlon Moore, Chuck Jacobs and B.J. Daniels are also in the mix for roster spots, as the team is rather deep at the position.

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree, who was targeted on the team's last three plays of Super Bowl XLVII, said Thursday, March 28, that he lost vision after being hit hard in the face near the goal line on third down. Crabtree said he took such a shot from Baltimore Ravens CB Jimmy Smith that he temporarily couldn't see. "When the guy hit me, he hit me all in the face," Crabtree said. "I'm not tripping. I'm not one to whine about nothing, but he hit me all in the face and I couldn't really see after he hit me ... It's not concussion-like. When you get hit in football, it's going to feel like you can't see. It's going to feel intense. But it snapped back. It happens all the time in football."

The Baltimore Ravens have traded WR Anquan Boldin to the San Francisco 49ers for a sixth-round pick.
Fantasy Tip: Boldin will not see his value change that much with this move. Colin Kaepernick will now have two inside receiving threats in Boldin and Michael Crabtree. Crabtree will likely remain the club's No. 1 receiving target and a high-end No. 2 point-per-reception wideout. Boldin remains a solid No. 3 WR heading into the 2013 season.

It hasn't been disclosed whether the woman who said she had been victimized went to a hospital to be examined. The woman went to the police four days after the party.
