San Francisco 49ers WRs Stevie Johnson and Brandon Lloyd likely will compete for the No. 3 wide receiver job during training camp.
Huddle Up: A big-name battle to be sure, but it might not matter much in fantasy with WRs Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin and TE Vernon Davis all ahead in the Niners' pass-receiving pecking order. Last season, that trio accounted for 156 of the team's 244 completions, and that was with Crabtree limited to 5 games coming back from injury.

The San Francisco 49ers on Tuesday, April 15 signed WR Brandon Lloyd to an undisclosed 1-year deal.
Huddle Up: Lloyd sat out last season after his 74-catch, 911-yard 2012 campaign in New England and gives the Niners some veteran insurance behind starters Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin. Don't be surprised, however, if the Niners still draft a wideout next month.

The San Francisco 49ers are talking to free-agent WR Brandon Lloyd (Patriots).
Huddle Up: The well-travelled Lloyd didn't play last season following his 74-catch, 911-yard 2012 showing in N.E. Now, he's eyeing a return to his original team, where he'd be no better than the third WR option behind starters Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin. The Niners have been kicking the tires on wideouts this offseason, so see if anything develops.

The New England Patriots, New York Jets and San Francisco 49ers are among the teams to check in with free-agent WR Brandon Lloyd (Patriots), but he has rejected those inquiries because he does not believe he is physically or mentally ready to play.
Huddle Up: This is an interesting development given the needs these teams have at receiver. It's unlikely Lloyd would have any fantasy value even if he does decide he still wants to play football.
