We may, depending on how the offense and Kaepernick develop in the offseason. Don't forget, the first few games of the season the Niners were a pass heavy team until it blew up in their face. I wouldn't be surprised to see them open it up a bit more this year now that Crabtree's back, Boldin is signed, and Patton has a year under his belt.
the continuity should open things up
Looking at the past 10 years of Harbaugh's offense, I highly doubt he changes his philosophy now just to get a 3rd WR some more snaps. Maybe they will split some of the snaps with Boldin/Crabtree to ensure Patton gets a few more reps this year but as far as a consistent slot/Y WR who's on the field on a regular basis, I highly doubt it.
But we can all dream, right?
