Manningham is hoping to see a larger role in the 49ers passing attack this week. He's seen an average of just five targets per game these last two weeks and is looking for more prominent work, particularly inside the red zone.
If there was ever a week to see a larger role,it would be now against the Redskins who allow an average of 275 passing yards per game with 15 passing touchdowns. In additon to that, they rank 11th on the league against opposing No. 2 receivers and are allowing an average of 50.1 yards per game to the position.
