Man, can't catch a break with injuries. Just have to hold on until Manningham is back and hope like hell he is somewhat back to his pre-injury self. For now Boldin, Baldwin, Williams, Moore. If we plan on keeping Harper at WR maybe he gets active one of these games. Well the good news is guys who would normally be inactive will start to be active. After week 6 I think we will have Manningham and Crabtree on the roster so they could be inactive each game until better. Same with Patton until he is ready to go. We used our IR-Designated to Return for Moody. So with Patton out Marecic or Harper could be active.
jreff, If Boldin and Manningham aren't back I'd have no problem drafting 2 WRs by the 3rd round.
Something like: 1.CB/WR 2.SS 2.CB/WR (whatever not in first) 3.WR 3.CB 3.C/T/DL (Goldson Comp?) So double dip at CB and WR (if Boldin, Manningham, Brown, Rogers not back). SS if Whitner not back. Then after that C to compete with Kilgore if need be otherwise DL depth/OL depth
Unless Rio is healthy enough to practice I don't think we activate him until week 9 after our bye week. I expect Crabtree to be activated on the deadline in week 12 to be ready for the final few games and playoffs.
I'm not sure on the rule. I thought you have to activate the player after week 6 or send them to IR. Or do you have like 2-3 weeks to decide and they don't count on the roster? I agree though seems like week 10 after the bye seems like when we will get most of our players back that will be coming back this year. Should have Willis and Asomugha for sure... will have Wright if we want him, should have Aldon, Moody, maybe Patton, maybe Carradine and/or Dial, Manningham, working on Crabtree. Just have to hold out and hang on until then.
As for options out there if we aren't happy with Boldin, Baldwin, Williams, Moore, Osgood, Harper.... Hawkins (familiar with system a bit), Little (although drops/seperation issues), Gordon (would probably take 1st or 2nd/extra). Other than that not a whole lot out there in free agency that are willing to work for 1 mil or less which is about all we have on the cap.
