The Giants have signed WR Mario Manningham to a 1-year deal.  Manningham has spent the past 2 seasons in San Francisco but was with the Giants the previous 4.  He posted a 57-822-5 line in 2009 and then went for 60-944-9 in 2010.  Manningham tore his ACL late in the 2012 campaign, though, and never looked healthy this past year.  He finished with just 9 catches in 6 appearances.  Manningham will only be 28 when the 2014 season kicks off but will likely settle in as New York's #4 WR behind Victor Cruz, Rueben Randle and Jerrel Jernigan.

49ers WR Mario Manningham (knee) has been placed on IR.  He recently suffered a setback with his surgically repaired knee.  Manningham managed just 9 catches for 85 yards in 6 games this season.  Rookie Quinton Patton figures to serve as San Francisco's #3 WR the rest of the way.  The 'Niners will continue to run mostly 2-WR sets, though.

The 49ers have activated WR Mario Manningham from the PUP list.  He's about 10 months removed from that torn ACL and PCL.  Manningham has been practicing for a couple weeks now and is expected to make his 2013 debut against the Panthers this weekend.  A healthy Manningham is capable of ascending to the #2 WR spot within a couple weeks, but remember that WR Michael Crabtree is also due back by the end of November.  Manningham averaged just 3.5 catches and 37 yards per game last season and is unlikely to be much more productive the rest of this year.

49ers WR Mario Manningham (knee) is expected to make his 2013 debut against the Panthers in Week 10.  San Francisco is on bye this week and has until next Wednesday to active Manningham from the PUP list.  He could quickly rise to #2 on the depth chart -- at least until Michael Crabtree is healthy -- but would still be 3rd on the passing-game totem pole.  Manningham is only worth stashing in deeper fantasy leagues.

49ers WR Mario Manningham revealed that he's been medically cleared from last December's torn ACL.  He'll continue to play it safe with his rehab, though, and won't commit to a debut date.  “I’m just doing what I’ve got to do to get back to 100 (percent),” he said.  “I’m getting confident.  By the time I step out there on Sunday, I’ll be 100.”  Manningham has been running and cutting on his surgically repaired knee and is expected to take part in some parts of Wednesday's practice.  He's not expected to play this weekend, though.  A Week 10 debut -- after San Francisco's Week 9 bye -- looks like a potential return date.  Manningham could quickly ascend to the #2 spot on the 49ers' depth chart, but he'd still be a low-upside fantasy option.  His return will give QB Colin Kaepernick's stock a boost, though.

The 49ers announced that WR Mario Manningham will be placed on the reserve PUP list, knocking him out for the first 6 games of the season.  It's no surprise.  Manningham has been slow to recover from last December's torn ACL and hasn't even returned to practice yet.  If he can get healthy, Manningham could work his way into a role during the 2nd half of the season.  But he's off the fantasy radar for now.

49ers insider Matt Maiocco says WR Mario Manningham "figures to be about a month away from making a run at getting on the field."  Manningham tore his ACL last December.  He won't make an early-season impact and might even start the year on the PUP list.  But a healthy Manningham is capable of emerging as San Fran's #2 WR in the 2nd half of the season.  He'll be worth monitoring as a potential in-season pickup.

49ers HC Jim Harbaugh isn't expecting WR Mario Manningham to be ready for training camp.  He went down with a torn ACL and PCL on December 24th.  Manningham won't be draftable in fantasy this summer.  His absence leaves San Fran thin at WR.  Michael Crabtree is locked into the #1 spot.  But Randy Moss and Ted Ginn are free agents, and Kyle Williams is also recovering from a torn ACL.  2012 first-round pick A.J. Jenkins will have every opportunity to win a starting spot.  The 'Niners also figure to bring in some help via the draft and/or free agency.

49ers WR Mario Manningham suffered a torn ACL and PCL in Sunday night's loss to the Seahawks.  It puts his status for the start of the 2013 season in doubt.  San Fran is now left with only Randy Moss and rookie A.J. Jenkings behind Michael Crabtree.  It's a concern heading into the postseason.

49ers WR Mario Manningham suffered a gruesome knee injury in the 3rd quarter of Sunday night's game.  He fumbled the ball before collapsing to the turf.  Manningham was in obvious pain as he was helped off the field.  He's done for the night and almost certainly done for the rest of the regular season and playoffs.

49ers WR Mario Manningham (shoulder) has been ruled out for tonight's game against the Patriots.  He had been listed as doubtful after suffering a setback in practice this week.  WR Randy Moss figures to pick up extra snaps, but he's not a trust fantasy option against his old team.  WR Michael Crabtree will continue to dominate targets from QB Colin Kaepernick.

49ers WR Mario Manningham (shoulder) is doubtful for Sunday night's showdown with the Patriots. In his absence last week, WR Randy Moss played a season high 50% of the offensive snaps but still finished with just 2 catches on 4 targets. Michael Crabtree is the only fantasy option among San Fran's WR corps.

As expected, 49ers WR Mario Manningham (shoulder) is inactive for today's game against the Dolphins.  His absence should get rookie WR A.J. Jenkins on the field for the first time this season.

49ers WR Mario Manningham (shoulder) was unable to practice all week and is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. His absence will mean more playing time for Randy Moss and rookie A.J. Jenkins, but neither guy is a fantasy option.

49ers WR Mario Manningham (shoulder) is inactive for tonight’s tilt with the Seahawks. It’s a bit of a surprise, but the deep threat was never a viable fantasy option against Seattle’s elite secondary.

49ers WR Mario Manningham (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game against the Seahawks.  He was limited in practice on Tuesday and Wednesday.  Manningham is expected to play but is just a desperation fantasy option against Seattle's physical secondary.

Multiple sources reported late Saturday night that WR Mario Manningham has reached a 2-year deal with the Niners. The news came right on the heels of Manningham spending a while in St. Louis, seemingly on the verge of joining the Rams. Instead, he arrives in an offense that has already added WR Randy Moss. These moves sure seem to build up a pass offense that hopes to get Peyton Manning soon. He has to be attracted to the offensive activity on a team that reached the NFC title game last season. Manningham is a better fantasy bet than Moss this year. He's inconsistent but will be just 26 when the season starts. Manningham brings the big-play ability that fantasy owners must hope Moss still possesses. Together, they raise the ceiling of whoever takes the San Francisco snaps in 2012. And, of course, it'll also be interesting to see how Michael Crabtree fits in with the new crew.
