Whoever’s playing quarterback for the 49ers could use all the help he could get.

So while their latest addition won’t help with the protection issues, he might do something for the passing game.

Via Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio, the 49ers are signing veteran receiver Louis Murphy.

They were short at the position after putting Pierre Garcon on injured reserve. Murphy was in camp with them this summer, but hasn’t played in a regular season game since he tore his ACL while playing for the Buccaneers in 2015.

Gruden: WR Josh Doctson must 'earn' more playing time

Monday, September 11, 2017, 6:16pm

Washington Post - [Full Article]

Equally puzzling was Jay Gruden’s limited use of Josh Doctson, the Redskins’ first-round draft pick in 2016 who was projected to be such a difference-maker that the front office let two of Cousins’s more reliable targets, DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon, depart in free agency.

Doctson was on the field for just 20 of the team’s 63 offensive snaps Sunday and was never targeted on a throw. Pressed Monday about Doctson’s limited workload, Gruden indicated that he felt the former No. 1 pick still needed to “earn” the right to get game-day opportunities.

Fantasy Impact:

Gruden added he thinks Doctson is ready to go, but said he has to play well to earn more time. Doctson hasn't practiced a whole lot between this season and last season, Gruden also pointed out. Gruden did add Doctson will get more work this week.

Mort: WR Pierre Garcon expected to sign with the 49ers

Chris Mortensen - [Full Article]

When Pierre Garcon finalizes deal with 49ers, as expected, league sources believe he will make $16 million in first year.

Fantasy Impact:

Garcon turns 31 in August, but is coming off a season where he caught 79 passes for 1,041 yards and three touchdowns. In fact, he has at least 68 catches in four straight seasons. In San Francisco, he’ll be reunited with his former offensive coordinator, Kyle Shanahan. In Shanahan’s last year in Washington, Garcon caught 113 passes for 1,346 yards and five scores. He’s four years older now, but should still see heavy volume playing for Shanahan.

Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder, questionable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 11. It looks like Jackson may be able to make his return this week against the Packers, though he’s still iffy. If he’s out, Jamison Crowder, Pierre Garcon and Vernon Davis all get a bump.
