Chillin’ Hard 49er of the Week goes to… Stevie Johnson! (@StevieJohnson13)
Kaepernick to Stevie really sparked the offense in a tough game vs the undefeated Eagles! The Niners advance 2-2 while grabbing their first Win at Levi Stadium. Johnson was a key pick up this offseason, and he is showing that hard work pays off. Stevie Johnson, we hope you draft us (Chillin’ Hard Radio) for your fantasy work team! 
Good luck next week vs Alex Smith and the Chiefs! Another tough week ahead! LET’S GO!!! #ChillinHardApproved View Larger
