Description: With WR Chaz Schilens expected to miss 3-6 weeks after undergoing surgery, the debate lingers as to who is the #3 WR behind Derrius Heyward-Bey and Louis Murphy in Oakland? According to HC Tom Cable, it might be Yamon Figurs or possibly rookie Jacoby Ford. SOURCE: SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
Insight: It's likely not going to matter much because Oakland isn't thought of as a fantasy-valued passing team. Even Murphy and Heyward-Bey are not being drafted until after the 12th round, so the third-stringer won't have any fantasy value early on. "I think Yamon Figurs has stepped it up. Jacoby Ford. We've got to teach him to get his feet up underneath him when he's coming out of breaks a little bit. Johnnie Lee Higgins has showed some things. So we have a nice corps right there, a next group just ready to step up," according to Cable.
