Fantasy Football News - 49ers wide receiver, Mario Manningham, is doubtful for Sunday’s matchup versus the Miami Dolphins dealing with a shoulder injury. Randy Moss will likely take over as the #2.
FFLockerRoom Take - Mario is the second leading receiver behind Michael Crabtree with 41 receptions on the year. The 49ers and Colin Kaepernick have relied on Michael Crabtree recently and that looks to continue in week 14. I would expect that Randy Moss starts opposite Crabtree and will see a few more targets. I would also expect Vernon Davis to have some more looks and should possibly move up the TE rankings based on this news. Also getting more playing time as a receiver could be Ted Ginn.
For those that are looking for a deep flyer or possible dynasty pickup, 49ers first round draft pick, AJ Jenkins, is probably going to see the field for the first time in his career. He’s been slow to develop in year one, but if he and Kaepernick developed any kind of rapport while taking second team snaps during the season, it might be a forward thinking move to consider.
