Receiver Ted Ginn appears to be the 49ers' biggest injury concern. Ginn is questionable for the NFC title game after sustaining a right knee injury on Saturday. Ginn was injured when New Orleans Saints linebacker Martez Wilson shoved him to the ground within the legal 5-yard contact zone on a crossing route in the second quarter.

Ginn landed hard on his kneecap and got up slowly. He was in on the next play, but was clearly hobbled. Kyle Williams replaced Ginn as the No. 2 receiver and on punt returns. Receiver Brett Swain became the No. 3 receiver.

Fantasy Impact:

Kyle Williams could have some fringe fantasy value with Ginn out, but Michael Crabtree and Vernon Davis are the only 49ers receivers to get excited about next week against the Giants.

The fact that Green Bay wide receiver James Jones has two of the team's three fumbles, including one in each of the last two games, hasn't landed him in the coaches' doghouse.

"Nobody's mad at James," said Jimmy Robinson, who coaches the team's wide receivers. "Guys have a bad play now and then. Hopefully, not too many of them."

Nevertheless, the Packers intend to start playing Jordy Nelson more. In three games, Greg Jennings leads the corps of wideouts with 139 snaps followed by Donald Driver with 136, Jones with 96, Nelson with 67 and Brett Swain with one.

Fantasy Impact:

Both Nelson and Jones are among the better backup receivers in the league, and if something happened to Jennings or Driver, their value would increase rapidly.

DB Derrick Martin had a hamstring strain, likely will miss some practice time this week. WR Brett Swain will have season-ending knee surgery. "Very unfortunate for Brett."

Packers battle at tight end

Green Bay Press-Gazette - [Full Article]

There will be another intriguing position battle at tight end, where up-and-coming youngster Jermichael Finley could unseat Donald Lee as the starter. Philbin said Finley is much improved from his rookie season in 2008.

"Jermichael is a much better player," Philbin said. "A year ago he was a 21-year-old kid from Texas. He didn’t know first base from third base. And so, he’s just a much different guy. He’s walking around the building like a different person. We’re excited, he’s making very good progress."

As for other offensive players that stood out during the offseason besides Finley, Philbin mentioned rookie lineman T.J. Lang (see below) and wide receivers Jordy Nelson and Brett Swain.
