Stevie Johnson WR SF 7 Days

Johnson (knee) is out for Sunday's game against Seattle.

With the 49ers offense a mess and the matchup highly unfavorable, Johnson wasn't in a position to capitalize in this game, anyway.

Johnson caught three of his his six targets for 28 yards in Thursday's loss to Seattle.

The six targets were the highest Johnson has received since week 7 against Denver. The increased usage was a result of the Seahawks completely shutting down the 49ers' top two receiving options - Anquan Boldin and Michael Crabtree - for the entire game. Johnson's usage is still too unpredictable to rely on in most leagues.

Johnson caught 3-of-5 targets for 41 yards in Sunday's 13-10 loss to the Rams.

Johnson had the third most targets on San Francisco, but posted modest totals. He remains an important part of the team's offense from a real-life point of view, although Colin Kaepernick has been spreading things around all season, making Johnson unpredictable from week-to-week.

Johnson (hip) suited up Sunday and led all 49ers' receivers with five catches for 79 yards and a score in the blowout loss to Denver.

Johnson was dealing with a minor hip injury coming into the game, but he was always expected to play Sunday. He served as a safety valve for Colin Kaepernick after Vernon Davis (back) proved to be unreliable in the first half with a pair of crucial drops. He has seen a healthy 13 targets over the last two weeks, making him a target for those in PPR and deeper leagues coming out of the bye next week. It would be tough to trust him (or any 49er receiver) in standard leagues due to the inconsistency of the team's passing game and Colin Kaepernick's tendency to spread the ball around.

Johnson (hip) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

Johnson, who has caught 20-of-25 targets for 236 yards and two TDs in six games to date, is out there if you need him Sunday night, but he's a hit-or-miss option these days, with fellow wideouts Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin, as well as TE Vernon Davis also in the mix to see targets in the 49ers' passing game.

Johnson (hip) is probable for Sunday's game against Denver.

Johnson practiced fully Friday, so his hip injury is something he's ready to play through. He's been extremely efficient this year, catching 20-of-25 targets for 236 yards and two scores, but his uncertain workload makes him an intimidating fantasy commitment.

Johnson (hip) was limited in Wednesday's practice, the Sacramento Bee reports.

Johnson took a knee to his right hip Monday in St. Louis, so his limited showing Wednesday is no surprise. In his first season in San Francisco, he's been hit-or-miss (mostly miss), with his receiving output ranging from nine to 103 yards. Because the corps is approaching full health with Vernon Davis (back) logging a full practice Wednesday, Johnson will likely be no higher than fourth in Colin Kaepernick's mind Sunday at Denver, assuming the wideout achieves active status.

Johnson, who took a knee to his right hip late in Monday's game, does not appear to be dealing with a major injury, csnbayarea.com reports.

Coach Jim Harbaugh relayed Wednesday that Johnson "was a little sore" Tuesday, but noted that the wideout's injury is not viewed as a long-term issue. It remains to be seen if Johnson will be able to practice Wednesday, however, so we'll consider the wideout day-to-day for now.

Johnson injured the right side of his body during Monday's game but it's not believed to be serious.

Johnson was injured during an onside kick recovery and was forced to leave the game in the waning minutes. He was able to catch five passes during his time on the field for a total of 53 yards. The 28-year-old said that he was "feeling good" Monday night, but his status for next Sunday's game against the Broncos will likely be determined in the latter half of the practice week.

Johnson only caught one pass Sunday, but it was a 9-yard touchdown reception.

This was the second week in a row where Johnson caught a touchdown pass, but it was also the second week in a row that he only had one reception. The 49ers have been using both Johnson and Brandon Lloyd at the slot position over the past couple of weeks. Neither is used consistently enough to warrant ownership in standard leagues, but those in deeper formats could take a flyer on him in case the redzone targets continue.
