As the number three receiver in a run-heavy offense, Steve Johnson will get many fewer targets than he was used to in Buffalo. His fantasy prospects are accordingly limited. Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin are expected to start on the outside. Johnson may occupy the slot in an offense that has rarely used a slot in recent seasons, or he may rotate in with Crabtree and Boldin on the outside. Either way, Johnson will be adjusting to a new complimentary role, having led the Buffalo Bills in targets in each of the last four seasons. Given that the 49ers prefer to win with defense and a strong running game, and that tight end Vernon Davis will figure heavily into the passing offense as well, the number three receiver may not get enough looks to make a fantasy impact. Johnson's past production makes him draftable as a fantasy WR5 with enticing upside potential; but his reduced offensive role makes it harder to draft him as anything more than that. (May 28)

49ers | Stevie Johnson should make team (Mon Aug 25, 06:11 PM) - San Francisco 49ers WR Stevie Johnson has a very good chance to make the 53-man roster, according to head coach Jim Harbaugh.

Our View: Johnson is a seasoned veteran who is back where he grew up in Northern California. He should work well as the team's WR3 behind Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin.
