Which Randy Moss will we see on the 49ers?

Rizzla: This is a tricky one to answer. On one hand Moss will be motivated playing for a contender. On the other hand his QB will be unable to get him the ball enough, and he will only be on the field for obvious passing plays. I really liked Moss as a WR3 candidate but now realize he is merely a bye week filler with WR3 upside. If the 49ers follow through with their plans to only play him 20-25 snaps per game his floor as mentioned is extremely low, but in the end he is one of the most talented receivers to ever play the game who still has some juice left.

Zach: The old one.  I don’t see Moss contributing a whole lot for the 49ers, especially with guys like Michael Crabtree, Vernon Davis, and Mario Manningham in the mix.  Yes, Moss is still a deep threat, but the guy is in his 14th season.  He doesn’t really have an elite quarterback in Alex Smith throwing to him either.  I’ll look elsewhere for a deep threat.

J-Has: I see Randy Moss as being a borderline fantasy-relevant WR. Even if the 49ers use Moss as a deep threat, Alex Smith is not the right QB to get it to him in this conservative offense. And due to the acquisition of Mario Manningham, Moss will not even be the primary possession receiver.
