, Calif. (AP) — The San Francisco 49ers will
honor former tight end Dwight Clark with a season-long celebration of his life
that will include unveiling a statue of “The Catch.”

Clark died in June at age 61. He suffered from ALS.

All 49ers players will wear 87 helmet decals throughout the season, and
Levi’s Stadium field bunting will pay tribute to Clark during all 49ers

The statue outside of Levi’s Stadium will be revealed on Oct. 21 when the
49ers host the Rams. The 350-pound statues of Clark and Joe Montana will be
placed 23 yards apart — the distance covered on the famed winning play in the
1981 NFC championship game. The representation of Clark, with his hands
outstretched, will extend 11 feet in the air.

During the game, an 87 marking will be in the end zone commemorating the
location of “The Catch,” which actually came at Candlestick Park, the team’s
previous home.

The Rams-49ers matchup will serve as the 49ers’ annual alumni game, with
funds raised to support Clark’s charity of choice, the Golden Heart Fund. That
fund was established in 2016 to support 49ers alumni in need of financial,
medical, psychological or emotional support.

“Almost four decades ago, Dwight Clark’s miraculous catch launched the San
Francisco 49ers into an era of excellence Cam

,” 49ers CEO Jed York said. “Since that time, he has
served as an inspirational figure to citizens of the Bay Area and beyond. Dwight
has meant so much to so many, and it is only fitting that our organization
continues to carry on his wonderful legacy. The 2018 season provides us a
tremendous opportunity to celebrate the life of a very special man, while also
raising awareness for the Golden Heart Fund, which was so dear to his heart.

“Dwight lived his life with great compassion for others, and we want to honor
that legacy by raising funds to support his 49ers brothers.”

The wide receiver position in fantasy football has been one of the more hotly
debated topics in recent seasons. The depth at receiver and amount of consistent
scoring led to the advent of the "zero running back" draft strategy.

Utilizing that approach, you would refrain from selecting a running back in
the early stages of your draft while loading up on the upper tier of receivers
to bolster your roster. What we have seen recently in the NFL is more teams
starting to employ balanced and traditional run-based attacks. This change in
philosophy has thrown a wrench into fantasy drafts regarding wideouts. As we
head into 2018, drafts are once again very running back heavy early on, pushing
receivers that we are used to seeing in the first round back into the second
round and beyond.

The top tier of WRs is made up of the very elite. Antonio Brown (Pittsburgh)
could be considered in a class all his own, but inside this superstar group you
also have players such as Houston's DeAndre Hopkins and Odell Beckham Jr. of the
Giants. Brown has led receivers in scoring the last several seasons by a wide
margin, but Hopkins and Beckham are two that could close the gap and have first
round draft value.

The next grouping is made up of players that will likely be taken during the
second round of drafts. Players like Michael Thomas (New Orleans) and Keenan
Allen (Chargers) provide solid floors but have the intrigue of an insanely high
ceiling as well. Atlanta's Julio Jones and Cincinnati's A.J. Green are stars
from previous seasons, but is their time beginning to come to an end?
Possibly Christian

, but they are still safe enough bets to bring you
WR1 production. Davante Adams of Green Bay is the wild card among this group.
Playing with Aaron Rodgers vaults his value and the touchdown production is

From Mike Evans (Tampa Bay) down to Golden Tate (Detroit), you'll find
players in the next range during Rounds 3 and 4 that can give you a mix of
points-per-reception (PPR) league value as well as touchdown scoring in standard
leagues. T.Y. Hilton of Indianapolis and Denver's Demaryius Thomas find
themselves back in this conversation as their quarterback situations have
greatly improved from a year ago. Vikings receivers Adam Thielen and Stefon
Diggs could have even better years in 2018 with the arrival of Kirk Cousins.

You have injury concerns with players like Allen Robinson (Chicago) and
Alshon Jeffrey (Philadelphia). Players like Browns wideout Jarvis Landry, Rams
receiver Brandin Cooks and Baltimore's Michael Crabtree find themselves in new
homes in hopes of making a significant fantasy impact. The potential is there
for each of them, but they could struggle at times. Players in this grouping are
being drafted between Rounds 5 and 6, a point where you certainly need the value
but you can also swing for a bit of upside as well.

In the next tier, you start to see players that will be flex options or even
matchup plays in given weeks. You have the upside of players like Corey Davis
(Tennessee), Chris Hogan (New England) and Sammy Watkins (Kansas City). But even
those receivers come with questions and concerns. Can they avoid the
inconsistencies that have plagued them in previous seasons? Other players in
this group have been disappointments. Those names include Randall Cobb (Green
Bay), Devin Funchess (Carolina) and DeVante Parker (Miami). With WRs in this
range, just know there will be weeks of poor play. But they can also give you
matchup-winning performances if started in the right scenario.

Sterling Shepard of the Giants, Miami's Kenny Stills and Buffalo's Kelvin
Benjamin are players that can provide safe floors in production but rarely have
huge games that get you excited to put them in your lineups. Will Fuller of
Houston and Nelson Agholor of Philadelphia are complete wild cards. They can
both have big games or disappear for weeks at a time. Jordy Nelson (Oakland),
Allen Hurns (Dallas) and Marqise Lee (Jacksonville) are players that don't jump
off the page. They could be worthy of flex consideration but most likely they
will be bench guys for you with matchup plays in mind.

As you get into the double digit rounds, you can find the player that is
getting undervalued that hits and becomes a weekly staple for you Michael
Del Zotto Jersey
, leading to wins. You will start to see the
rookies really come off the board later with a lot of talk surrounding WRs like
Anthony Miller of Chicago, Denver's Courtland Sutton and Pittsburgh's James
Washington in the preseason. The hype surrounding these rookies will greatly
affect their average draft position, so if you like the player be prepared to
jump earlier than usual.

The names you will see as you finish your draft off won't give you that
tingly feeling, but they will be quality receivers that can provide depth on
your bench. Some may catch fire and find themselves firmly implanted in your
lineup rotation, others could fall flat. The good thing is that you don't waste
much value in these later rounds, making these receivers expendable if they
aren't up to par.

Ultimately, you may keep hearing about how the wide receiver position is
deep. Don't buy into that. This position is very top-heavy with upper echelon
players and can quickly fall off as you go through your draft. The best fantasy
owner is one that isn't fazed by curve balls being thrown their way during a
draft. They are fully prepared for what comes, either good or bad.
