Roto Arcade - Fantasy

Mike Nolan might be gone, but Mike Martz is not. The San Francisco offense should still interest you, and a few pieces were recently rearranged.

This report is from Monday's San Francisco Chronicle:

Although the 49ers opened up in a two-tight end formation with Vernon Davis and Billy Bajema, as soon as they went with two wide receivers, rookie Josh Morgan joined 15-year veteran Isaac Bruce.

That marked a subtle change in the lineup, with Morgan, a sixth-round draft pick from Virginia Tech, playing most of the game in place of Bryant Johnson, the free agent from the Cardinals. Johnson played sparingly.

Morgan finished with five receptions for 86 yards and a TD. A dropped pass kept him from reaching triple-digit yardage, but it was still an encouraging performance. You might recall that Mr. Pianowski hyped Morgan back in mid-August.

Drops could continue to be an issue for Morgan -- it's not a new concern -- but he's a physical receiver with playmaking ability, and he's now a starter in a system that's useful for fantasy purposes. Morgan is only six percent owned in Plus leagues. Let's all work together to make him ineligible for Shocker Special status this week, OK?

The Niners are at home against the Seahawks in Week 8.
