SF WR's (1 Viewer)

Hi All

I was wondering what everyone thought about the SF WR's. With there schedule is there any value out there to grab?

 
I believe Ike Bruce is the man to own for this season.

Bryant Johnson has been dinged.

Josh Morgan has disappeared for the moment.

Arnaz Battle has shown nothing but inconsistency.

 
The one thing that stands out to me is that no one has stood out.

Target distribution has been pretty even through 1st 3 games:

Bruce 15

Gore 14

Johnson 13

Battle 13

Davis 12

Morgan 7

Keasey 5

Walker 3

Foster 2

For this year, I still have my money on Johnson

(although the recurring hammy issue has me rethinking this . . .)

The one point I'd make here is Bruce didn't have a single target in Week 1. FBG has him with 12 targets the past two games and I think we'll see that what happened in Week 1 was a fluke and won't happen again as long as Bruce is healthy. To me, that's the key - Bruce's health. If he can stay healthy, I think he'll be the No. 1 WR with the 49ers and a very viable WR3 with WR2 upside many weeks (especially this one).

If you take out Johnson's worst game (Week 3 with 1 target),he also has 12 targets through the other 2 games.You make a great point though in that stats can easily be spun.Take Bruce's 12 targets over those 2 games (I counted 15 because I included plays with penalties).8 (11) of those came in a single game, meaning for the other 2 games, he has 0 and 4 targets.By that, I'd say that Week 2 was the fluke.I think the real moral of the story, is that we're trying to draw conclusions from 3 data points.It's way to early in the year to tell . . .
 
The real question is how much of Morgan's disappearance was due to the staph infection. He looked like a beast early in camp. If he's healthy now and Johnson is limited because of the hammy, he might be the guy to target.

True. But one thing to remember abut Week 3 is the 49ers pretty much stopped passing the ball in the second half. They had a huge lead, the Lions had quit so Martz was content to give the ball to Gore the rest of the game. I'm not sure how many of those games the Niners will have the rest of this season. I think Bruce is the lead WR in this offense by virtue of his talent and proven experience in Martz's system. As long as he's healthy, I think the stats will bear that out.

:shrug: Will be interesting to see how it pans out.Gotta admit I'm biased here (I own BJ in 2 leagues)It also feels really ackward to root for former Niner-killer Bruce, after hating him for so many years . . .
