  49ers | J. Hill replaces Bruce in Week 9    Mon Nov 9, 10:53 AM

Matt Maiocco, of The Santa Rosa Press Democrat, reports San Francisco 49ers WR Jason Hill replaced WR Isaac Bruce in the lineup in Week 9. Bruce was not among the players listed on the team's injury report following the game. Hill would finish with four receptions for 50 yards and two touchdowns.

Footballguys view: This is likely Hill's biggest game of the year, so we're not wild about rushing out and getting this guy on the waiver wire. Hill proved that he can be relied on for more looks, but is still behind Frank Gore, Vernon Davis, Michael Crabtree, and Josh Morgan in this offense.

  49ers | Morgan staying on field in run situations    Tue Sep 15, 08:09 PM

Maiocco reports that Morgan had a great block on Adrian Wilson on a short pass to Arnaz Battle in the fourth quarter, and that Bryant McFadden barely broke up a TD pass to Morgan in the week 1 contest.

Footballguys view: Morgan's value is concealed by his meager stats on Sunday, but he is the 49ers #1, and he should be for a long time with Michael Crabtree's current foolishness.

  49ers | Bruce better than expected    Fri Sep 4, 09:38 PM

Matt Maiocco, from the Santa Rosa Press Democrat, reports veteran wide receiver Isaac Bruce is the only receiver on the roster who looked better than expected. Watching him daily was a treat. Certainly, at 36, he's past his prime, but he's still pretty good. He is smooth, precise and professional. He's more than a little quirky, but not in a diva-like way. He's stays to himself and does as much as he can to avoid added attention.

Footballguys view: Bruce finished in the top 25 fantasy receivers last year, and his game hasn't fallen off much (if at all) from his 2008 performance. Even when Michael Crabtree ends his holdout, Bruce will still have fantasy value. He's good for around 50 catches, 600 yards, and 5 touchdowns this year.

Footballguys view: Gore and Bruce are veterans, and their spot on the final roster is more than secure. There's no need to risk an injury in the fourth week of the preseason.
