Taking a Risk on 49ers' Receiving Unit: Signing Another Veteran Wideout May Still Be the Right Play

By Don Atkinson

When it comes to talking about the 49ers' group of wide receivers, the words of Yogi Berra seem to apply: "It's like deja vu all over again." Last year at about this time, the 49ers took a torpedo to their wide receiver plans when they lost both big-bodied rookie Jalen Hurd and the scrappy Trent Taylor to pre-season injuries. They had another rookie wideout, Deebo Samuel, who would later prove to be a gem for the team's offense, but at the time things were looking less than hopeful for the 49ers' chances of making significant strides toward a playoff appearance. In an effort to boost the receiver room last season, the 49ers brought in veteran Emmanuel Sanders from the Denver Broncos, and it had a magical effect on the other wideouts for the rest of the

The Arizona Cardinals won just five games last season but played the San Francisco 49ers hard, losing by a combined 13 points between the two matchups. The Cardinals actually had a lead heading into the fourth quarter of the Week 11 matchup in Santa Clara and could have come away with a victory in either of the two games. The 49ers had the No. 2 ranked rushing attack last season and dominated in two playoff games on the way to Super Bowl LIV. Fullback Kyle Juszczyk spoke with reporters on Friday and explained why the Cardinals might view the Niners differently than the rest of the league, though.

49ers' Kyle Shanahan on impact of no preseason, area where Jets may be tougher than Cardinals

There was some talk after the Arizona Cardinals pulled off the upset victory over the defending NFC champions at Levi's Stadium that the San Francisco 49ers may have been rusty. There's no doubt that the team was banged up entering the contest. It entered the game without two receivers who figure to be key contributors this season and its starting and backup centers out of the lineup. Then the 49ers' All-Pro tight end, George Kittle, suffered an injury midway through the contest. Although, he kept playing because ... well, he's George Kittle. But did the lack of a preseason impact the 49ers' performance during Week 1? Maybe. But it's probably not the only thing that affected the team on Sunday. It is worth noting that every NFL team was on equal footing when it
