The Sacramento Bee calls 49ers WR Stevie Johnson a "presumed starter" for 2015.
Michael Crabtree is a free agent and seems unlikely to re-sign with the 49ers. Brandon Lloyd is also headed for free agency, leaving Anquan Boldin and Johnson atop the depth chart. Johnson played just 305 snaps this past season, catching 35 balls for 435 yards and three touchdowns as the No. 3 receiver. Johnson is a crisp route runner with good hands, but the 49ers desperately need a field stretcher out wide. Johnson and Boldin are carbon-copy clones as possession receivers. Jan 28 - 11:09 AM

Stevie Johnson (knee) has been ruled out for Week 17.

Michael Crabtree (knee) and Brandon Lloyd (groin) are listed as probable. Due a $250,000 roster bonus in 2015, Johnson is a candidate for offseason release.

Stevie Johnson (knee) has been ruled out for Week 16.

The Niners' ballyhooed offseason trade for Johnson never did help much.

49ers declared WR Stevie Johnson, QB Josh Johnson, OT Anthony Davis, CB Tramaine Brock, C Marcus Martin, S Ray Ventrone and RCB Chris Culliver inactive for Week 15 against the Seahawks.

Johnson is week to week. He'll be replaced in three-wide sets by Brandon Lloyd, though it's unlikely to matter much against the Legion of Boom in Seattle. Dontae Johnson is starting in place of Culliver.

Stevie Johnson (knee) has been ruled out for Week 15.

Johnson should be considered week to week. Brandon Lloyd will play in all three-wide sets.

The role player appears likely to miss Week 15.
Thu, Dec 11, 2014 06:20:00 PM

Stevie Johnson (knee) did not practice Wednesday.

Johnson was held without a catch last week and played just 34 snaps. He could be in danger of missing Week 15. Johnson won't be a fantasy option if active.
Wed, Dec 10, 2014 07:36:00 PM

Stevie Johnson was held catch-less in Week 14.

Targeted just twice against the Raiders, Johnson has been a lightly used role player in the 49ers' offense. Despite some decent games along the way, he hasn't had fantasy value all season.
Sun, Dec 7, 2014 07:46:00 PM

Stevie Johnson caught 3-of-6 targets for 28 yards Week 13 against the Seahawks

Johnson's six targets were tied for the team lead with Brandon Lloyd. Both players saw an increased snap load with Michael Crabtree hampered by a rib injury. Johnson would see his role increase if Crabtree is forced to miss any time, but is still not on the fantasy radar.

Stevie Johnson was held without a catch in Week 12.

Sub-package receivers Brandon Lloyd and Johnson both were targeted once against the Redskins, and came away catch-less. Although Johnson has been a useful on-field player for the 49ers at times this year, he has no fantasy value.
Sun, Nov 23, 2014 07:52:00 PM

Stevie Johnson caught one pass for eight yards in Sunday's Week 11 win over the Giants.

Johnson's saw one target and made the most of it, working back to Colin Kaepernick to catch a laser away from his body. The ex-Bill hasn't reached 50 yards or scored a touchdown since Week 7.
Sun, Nov 16, 2014 05:24:00 PM

Stevie Johnson caught 3-of-3 targets for 43 yards in San Francisco's Week 10 win over the Saints.

Johnson continues to be far-more effective than Michael Crabtree on a per-snap basis, but saw Crabtree rack up five more targets against the Saints. Johnson has been an important player for the 49ers, but there's been nothing to suggest he's about to come into legitimate fantasy value.
Sun, Nov 9, 2014 07:07:00 PM

Stevie Johnson caught 3-of-5 targets for 41 yards against the Rams Week 9.

Johnson has been very involved in the 49ers offense of late, averaging six targets over his last three games. He also has three touchdowns in the last five. Through eight games this season Johnson is on pace 56 catches for 712 yards and six touchdowns. He will struggle to reach those totals.
Sun, Nov 2, 2014 08:29:00 PM

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.

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.
