Stevie Johnson caught five passes for 79 yards and a touchdown in Sunday night's Week 7 loss to the Broncos.
Johnson played in the majority of three-wide sets with Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin. He wasn't limited by the hip injury that cost him practice time this week. Johnson's touchdown came on a four-yard strike from Colin Kaepernick in the back of the end-zone. He doesn't have a major role in the 49ers' offense, but has been productive with three touchdowns in his last four games. Johnson remains just a WR5 for fantasy purposes. Oct 20 - 1:15 AM

Stevie Johnson (hip) is probable for Week 7.

Johnson's hip injury won't be an issue for Sunday night's matchup with the Broncos. He's a WR5 for fantasy purposes.
Oct 17 - 8:33 PM

Stevie Johnson (hip) participated in 49ers practice again Friday.

Johnson plays very few snaps in the 49ers' offense, but has been a factor when in the game. For fantasy purposes, however, he's just a WR5.
Oct 17 - 3:12 PM

Stevie Johnson (hip) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Johnson was injured late in Monday night's win over the Rams. His status will be updated again on Thursday.
Oct 15 - 5:42 PM

Stevie Johnson caught five passes for 53 yards in the 49ers' Week 6 win over the Rams.

Johnson was targeted six times on the night as the 49ers' clear No. 3 receiver. Despite Brandon Lloyd's 80-yard score, Johnson will remain in that role. He appeared to hurt his knee on a late onside kickoff by the Rams, but looked to escape a serious injury. Johnson is off the radar in 12-team leagues.
Oct 14 - 12:27 AM

Stevie Johnson caught a nine-yard touchdown in San Francisco's Week 5 win over the Chiefs.

Johnson's second-quarter score was his lone catch of the afternoon, and one of only two targets. He burned CB Marcus Cooper, getting himself wide open in the end zone. Although he's now scored in each of the past two weeks, Johnson remains a role player for the 49ers, and off the radar in fantasy leagues.
Oct 5 - 8:07 PM

Stevie Johnson caught one pass for a 12-yard touchdown in Sunday's Week 4 win over the Eagles.

Johnson made the most of his two targets, turning one of them into an incredible toe-tapper in the corner of the end zone. But the meager usage reiterates the lack of appeal in the No. 3 wideout for a run-first offense. Johnson is now on pace for 56 catches, 696 yards and four touchdowns.
Sep 28 - 8:19 PM

Stevie Johnson caught 9-of-9 targets for 103 yards in San Francisco's Week 3 loss to the Cardinals.

Vernon Davis' lost targets went to Johnson instead of fill-in TE Derek Carrier. Johnson got open at will as he more than doubled his 2014 catch and yardage totals, and looked like a player who still has plenty left in the tank. His angular route running hasn't lost its effectiveness. That being said, the volume just isn't going to be there for Johnson when Davis, Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin are all healthy. Johnson is not a high-upside WR4 stash in 12-team leagues.
Sep 21 - 8:08 PM

Stevie Johnson caught two passes for 26 yards in Week 2 against the Bears.

Johnson played in three-wide sets, finishing with four targets. Both of his catches came on third down. Brandon Lloyd and Quinton Patton were both healthy inactives. Johnson is locked in as the 49ers' No. 3 receiver.
Sep 15 - 1:47 AM

Stevie Johnson caught 2-of-2 targets for 33 yards in San Francisco's Week 1 win over the Cowboys.

Johnson appeared to be operating as the 49ers' No. 4 receiver behind Brandon Lloyd, but out-targeted Lloyd 2-1. Lloyd was held without a catch. The veteran duo has dispatched Quinton Patton, who was a healthy scratch on Sunday, but neither player is on the fantasy radar for the time being.
Sep 7 - 8:19 PM

Stevie Johnson and Brandon Lloyd both made the 49ers' 53-man roster.

The 49ers decided to keep six wideouts: Michael Crabtree, Anquan Boldin, Johnson, Lloyd, Quinton Patton and Bruce Ellington. There's still going to be competition, as Patton ran ahead of Johnson for No. 3 duties in the third preseason game and Lloyd wants to get his nose in the mix too. The Sac Bee suggests Lloyd may not be active on Sundays.
Aug 31 - 9:28 AM

Coach Jim Harbaugh said Stevie Johnson has done an "outstanding job" and "feel[s] good about him being on the 53-man roster."

Johnson hasn't done much this preseason -- 2-11-0 on four targets -- but the entire 49ers' first-team offense has struggled. Johnson and Brandon Lloyd are competing for the No. 3 receiver spot and possibly even the same roster spot, considering neither plays special teams. Whichever receiver wins the job, they're not going to have much fantasy value as the No. 4 pass-game option.
Aug 25 - 6:08 PM

Stevie Johnson caught his lone target for five yards in Sunday's third preseason game versus San Diego.

Johnson has consistently been running as the 49ers' No. 3 receiver behind Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin, but has been facing steady heat from Brandon Lloyd. He'd be no higher than the No. 4 option in the passing game in San Francisco. Johnson's a better real-life than fantasy player.
Aug 24 - 6:42 PM

CSN Bay Area doesn't consider Stevie Johnson a lock to win the 49ers' No. 3 receiver job.

Johnson is facing tougher than expected competition from Brandon Lloyd. Per reporter Matt Maiocco, Johnson has yet to develop chemistry with Colin Kaepernick. Maiocco believes Johnson would have to take a pay-cut from his $3.925 million salary if he can't nail down No. 3 duties. In that scenario, Johnson could be best off calling the 49ers' bluff and hitting the open market.
Aug 21 - 5:32 PM

CSN Bay Area suggests Stevie Johnson will have to "clearly" win the No. 3 receiver job due to his scheduled $3.925 million salary.

Johnson is competing for No. 3 duties behind Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin. Rookie Bruce Ellington, sophomore Quinton Patton, and veteran Brandon Lloyd are also in the mix, and all make considerably less money than Johnson. Whoever wins the No. 3 job is highly unlikely to be fantasy relevant as the No. 4 option in the passing game. Johnson is no lock for the 53-man roster.
