San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Randy Moss scored a touchdown in his big debut vs. the Packers. We discuss the fantasy implications.

Coming out of retirement and signing with the San Francisco 49ers, Randy Moss scored in his regular season debut. Flying around the field like his old self, Moss made four grabs for 47 yards and touchdown against Green Bay. The defenses respected him, but Moss is still a threat in this league.

Fantasy Analysis: Moss was used sparingly in his debut like SI's Jim Trotter suggested he might be. The veteran receiver was only in on a fraction of the 49ers' offensive snaps. However, they seem to have a purpose for him and when they do unleash him, it seems to yield production. The 49ers started off the season in a big way, which should have Moss' spirits high as well. His role could possibly expand as the season goes on, but right now, Moss is a solid flex option.
