San Francisco 49ers WR Stevie Johnson hasn't had great chemistry with QB Colin Kaepernick in the preseason. Kaepernick called Johnson's movements on the field "unorthodox." "I've pretty much taken it upon myself to be unorthodox to make up for some things that other receivers have – you know, speed and quickness," Johnson said this week. "I set up my routes a little different. It's a gift and a curse. Because it can take some time to build chemistry with quarterbacks. But at the same time, the gift is that you know you can get open." WR Quinton Patton was on the field, not Johnson, when the team went with three-receiver sets in their preseason game over the weekend, and Johnson didn't play with Kaepernick at all. The team is unsure who will be the No. 3 receiver, leading to speculation that Johnson may be cut this weekend. Regardless, Kaepernick and head coach Jim Harbaugh believe that Johnson is making steady progress.
Fantasy Tip: Johnson's lack of chemistry with Kaepernick is definitely concerning, as is his standing on the team's current depth chart. He's not worth drafting in any standard leagues.

San Francisco 49ers WR Stevie Johnson has a very good chance to make the 53-man roster, according to head coach Jim Harbaugh.
Fantasy Tip: Johnson probably will be the team's third receiver this season. Owners can consider taking a late-round flier on Johnson, but he likely will not be a weekly starter.

San Francisco 49ers WR Stevie Johnson (hamstring) looked healthy in Day 1 of training camp. QB Colin Kaepernick raved about Johnson's quickness and deceptiveness that fuel his ability to create separation.
Fantasy Tip: Johnson's fantasy prospects in this crowded receiving corps don't bode well for his week-to-week consistency in terms of numbers. He's a WR4 most weeks, with more upside depending on the matchup. But his presence improves this passing game as a whole, giving Kap more cred as a top-10 fantasy QB.

San Francisco 49ers WR Stevie Johnson (hamstring) passed his physical and has been cleared to practice Thursday, July 23.
Fantasy Tip: Hamstring injuries are tricky and could linger as the year goes on even if a player thinks they are healthy. Johnson is probably a WR4 on draft day.

San Francisco 49ers WR Stevie Johnson is the frontrunner for the No. 3 WR job, according to Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com, but he added that neither Johnson nor WR Brandon Lloyd is a lock to make the roster. Maiocco believes that Johnson's salary and the fact that Lloyd doesn't contribute on special teams would make them expendable if a younger receiver proves capable of filling the No. 3 WR role.
