Fantasy owners weren't sure what to expect from Moss in his 49ers debut, but he came up big for those who took a chance on him in Week 1. He seems like a good - but not great - play heading into Week 2 against Detroit.
Moss is back after reaching a one-year contract with the San Francisco 49ers, announced by the team late Monday. ESPN first reported the move a day before the start of the free agency period.|||||||

Moss is calling it a career after 13 seasons in the NFL as one of the most dynamic and polarizing players the league has ever seen.
