Jim Harbaugh reportedly gushing about Randy Moss

The San Jose Mercury News - [Full Article]

WR Randy Moss cast such a favorable impression during offseason workouts that coach Jim Harbaugh is calling him the 49ers’ best receiver, according to SiriusXM NFL Radio’s Rich Gannon.

Moss indeed earned praise throughout the offseason program — from Harbaugh, quarterbacks, wide receivers, defensive backs, other teammates and the media that watched practice.

Gannon said Harbaugh told him: “This offseason he’s been incredible. He’s our best receiver right now.’ ”

Gannon then added: “How ’bout that, ‘He’s our best receiver.’ ”

Fantasy Impact: 

Moss's ADP has shot up into the 9th round, and we're even seeing him go ahead of Michael Crabtree in some cases. There is upside with Moss in the 8th or 9th round, but owners have to weigh his recent past with his prospects in the 49ers' offense, which was run-heavy in 2011. The team will likely throw more with Moss, Mario Manningham and LaMichael James in town, but will it be enough to make Moss, Crabtree and/or Vernon Davis legitimate fantasy starters.
