Just moments after labeling San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore a fantasy football loser, NFL Network’s Michael Fabiano had the same assessment for newly acquired WR Stevie Johnson. A player that was the go-to-guy in Buffalo, Johnson now enters unchartered territory as he fights his way atop the depth chart, as Fabiano said:

“Stevie Johnson goes from being the No. 1 option the past dec in Buffalo to four in San Francisco! He’s a big loser from my fantasy perspective. A guy that I’m not even drafting at this point. You’ve got Michael Crabtree, you’ve got Vernon Davis, you’ve got Anquan Boldin, you’ve got a backfield loaded with talent, Stevie Johnson comes in will play the slot, but as the fourth option in that offense, “hey I can’t even draft him.”
