Thus far the 35-year-old 49 WR Randy Moss has impressed teammates and coaches with his trademark speed and downfield ability on the field, and his willingness to mentor younger players off it.

Still, none of that will matter if he doesn't get it done in games. The 49ers likely will limit him to 20-25 plays a game to keep him fresh. If he's able to take the top off the defense and keep a safety deep, it'll create so many opportunities elsewhere that coordinator Greg Roman, who oversaw a unit that attempted the second-fewest passes in the league last year, will be kept awake at night pondering all the possibilities.

Roman not only has a new toy in Moss, but also wideouts Mario Manningham and top draft pick A.J. Jenkins, as well as rookie running back LaMichael James.

Fantasy Impact: 

Obviously not good news for those looking to grab Moss. His limited plays will likely limit his point totals and it looks like he could be a hit and miss player every week, and that's a risky lineup play. We rank Moss 37th in standard leagues with his ADP in the 12th round.
