Mario Manningham (WR, SF) – Waiver Wire Pickup

Matt Hartman - RotoBaller

BALLER MOVE: Continue monitoring

ANALYSIS:  Last week, I mentioned that the San Francisco WRs have been struggling.  The good news is that they have reinforcements coming in soon in Mario Manningham and Michael Crabtree.  This year, Manningham has been out due to an ACL injury.  Coach Harbaugh has indicated that Manningham will start practicing as he continues his recovery.  At this time its difficult to know when Manningham will return or how much he will contribute, but I can’t imagine he’d be any worse than the current starting WRs on the 49ers.  If you are looking for a WR waiver option on the bye week or due to injury I’d put Manningham on your ‘watchlist’.
