  Seahawks | Battle to be heated for fifth WR job    Tue Jul 23, 11:59 AM

Seattle Seahawks WRs Doug Baldwin, Percy Harvin, Sidney Rice and Golden Tate are expected to be the top four wide receivers. Unless an injury or two occurs, that leaves WRs Phil Bates, Arceto Clark, Chris Harper, Greg Herd Jermaine Kearse, Brett Swain, Justin Veltung, Bryan Walters and Stephen Williams to battle it out for the fifth, and perhaps sixth, receiver job(s). The team kept five receivers last season, but could elect to keep six. Walters reportedly had a strong offseason working in the slot.

Footballguys view: Keep your eye on Harper here. The rookie from Kansas State has drawn comparisons to Anquan Boldin (49ers) because of his size, hands, and run after the catch ability.

  49ers | Randy Moss to fight for playing time    Tue May 1, 02:11 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Randy Moss will have to fight with WRs Ted Ginn Jr., Kyle Williams and Brett Swain for playing time this year. WRs Michael Crabtree, Mario Manningham and A.J. Jenkins will be ahead of Moss on the depth chart.

Footballguys view: Nothing is guaranteed for Moss, and he'll have to prove that he can play like the Randy Moss of old. In 2010 he bounced between three teams (Patriots, Vikings, Titans) and played poorly on his final stop in Tennessee. Moss is still big and fast, but needs to have more consistent effort if he wants to play up to his potential.

  Packers | Swain helped by special teams play    Mon Sep 7, 05:10 PM

Tom Pelissero, of the Green Bay Press-Gazette, reports Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson said WR Brett Swain probably won the final wide receiver spot on the roster because of his special teams ability.

Footballguys view: Swain should get at least a few dozen targets over the course of the season, as the Packers sometimes use a five wide receiver set. If a rash of injuries strike the Green Bay wide receiver corps, Swain could even have some fantasy value at some point this season.
