San Francisco 49ers WR Stevie Johnson hasn't had great chemistry with QB Colin Kaepernick in the preseason. Kaepernick called Johnson's movements on the field "unorthodox." "I've pretty much taken it upon myself to be unorthodox to make up for some things that other receivers have – you know, speed and quickness," Johnson said this week. "I set up my routes a little different. It's a gift and a curse. Because it can take some time to build chemistry with quarterbacks. But at the same time, the gift is that you know you can get open." WR Quinton Patton was on the field, not Johnson, when the team went with three-receiver sets in their preseason game over the weekend, and Johnson didn't play with Kaepernick at all. The team is unsure who will be the No. 3 receiver, leading to speculation that Johnson may be cut this weekend. Regardless, Kaepernick and head coach Jim Harbaugh believe that Johnson is making steady progress.
Fantasy Tip: Johnson's lack of chemistry with Kaepernick is definitely concerning, as is his standing on the team's current depth chart. He's not worth drafting in any standard leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson probably will be the team's third receiver this season. Owners can consider taking a late-round flier on Johnson, but he likely will not be a weekly starter.

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree said he did not feel like himself when he returned from offseason Achilles' tendon surgery last season. "I was fast enough to be on the field," Crabtree said. "But I wasn't me." Crabtree looked like a No. 1 receiver this offseason before he suffered a hamstring injury.
Fantasy Tip: Crabtree is working his way back from the hamstring injury and should be ready for the start of the season. Crabtree probably will be a starter or weekly flex option in most fantasy leagues.
