The wide receiver will be facing his former Arizona team for the second time Sunday when the San Francisco 49ers (3-2) host the Cardinals (3-2) in an NFC West showdown.
The 49ers and Chiefs have traded their former top draft pick wide receivers. AJ Jenkins is headed from Kansas City to San Francisco in exchange for Jon Baldwin. Viewed as underachievers, John Madden said the change of scenery might provide a boost for both of them.
Here’s a look at some sleepers that could pay dividends in your fantasy league.
Randy Moss was refreshingly candid during his Media Day session on Tuesday. Confident, too: The 49erswideout said that he believes he’s the greatest wideout in NFL history.
No receiver in the history of the NFL—Rice included—has displayed the combination of size, speed, sure-handedness, intelligence and big play-making abilities like Moss.
If Moss has anything left at the age of 35, he will be a welcome addition. He still has excellent speed and can stretch the field. His mere presence will open up the short-to-medium range routes for Michael Crabtree, Mario Manningham and tight end Vernon Davis.
Reports after minicamp claim that A.J. Jenkins, the San Francisco 49ers’ first-round pick, has been struggling mightily. However, this shouldn’t worry fans in the slightest.
R.C. Owens, a longtime 49ers front office man and eight-year NFL wide receiver whose impressive leaping ability earned him the nickname “Alley Oop” and helped popularize the basketball phrase, died Sunday at age 77.
California wide receiver and Pac-12 Conference first-team selection Keenan Allen is scheduled to have ankle surgery that will sideline him for all of spring practice.
