49ers | Michael Crabtree didn't feel 100 percent in 2013

Wed, 20 Aug 2014 11:17:43 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree said he did not feel like himself when he returned from offseason Achilles' tendon surgery last season. "I was fast enough to be on the field," Crabtree said. "But I wasn't me." Crabtree looked like a No. 1 receiver this offseason before he suffered a hamstring injury.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree is working his way back from the hamstring injury and should be ready for the start of the season. Crabtree probably will be a starter or weekly flex option in most fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree is a good target as your WR3 in his contract year.

49ers | Michael Crabtree shines in playoff win

Mon, 06 Jan 2014 10:41:18 -0800

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree had eight catches for 125 yards in the team's Wild Card win over the Green Bay Packers Sunday, Jan. 5. "People talk about cold weather and it'd be tough to catch balls," head coach Jim Harbaugh said, referring to the five-degree temperature at kickoff. "But the greatest catcher of all time, Michael Crabtree, catches everything. It's unbelievable." It was only Crabtree's sixth game back from offseason Achilles' surgery.

49ers | Week 17 opponent not respecting Michael Crabtree?

Fri, 27 Dec 2013 11:37:04 -0800

Arizona Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson doesn't believe that WR Michael Crabtree is 100 percent healthy after coming off his torn Achilles' tendon, even though Crabtree had 102 yards receiving in Week 16. "He's slowly getting back into the groove, like he's trying to get back in game shape, get back moving the way he used to," Peterson said. "You can tell he doesn't look as comfortable as he did when he was healthy. That's going to come with time." Crabtree had five catches for 72 yards and two touchdowns against Peterson in the first time the two teams faced off last season, and he had eight catches for 172 yards and two touchdowns in the second matchup in 2012.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree isn't at top speed yet, but that doesn't mean he can't or won't be effective. The prior success against Peterson is a plus, but an back-to-back 100-yard effort is probably unlikely. Consider Crabtree more of a WR3 or flex in Week 17.

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (ankle) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 13, and is probable for Week 15.

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (Achilles') is not listed on the injury report this week. He was able to fully participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree, who was able to play 42 snaps in his season debut in Week 13, is worth using as a WR3/4 or flex fantasy option in this weekend's game barring any setbacks in practice later this week.

49ers | Michael Crabtree looks good in first game

Tue, 03 Dec 2013 16:56:22 -0800

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree caught a 60-yard pass and looked to be at full speed in his season debut in Week 13 against the St. Louis Rams. He played a healthy amount of snaps and looks to be full speed. "I was at game speed," Crabtree said, when asked if he's as fast as before the injury. "I probably wasn't 100 percent, but I was trying to make everything happen. Anything he threw my way, I was trying to make the most of it."

Fantasy Tip: A healthy Crabtree is a nice sight for the Niners and his fantasy owners. The addition of Crabtree opens up looks for Vernon Davis and Anquan Boldin in the passing game. Don't expect Crabtree to be the difference for your fantasy squad down the stretch, but there is optimism that he can at least contribute flex-like numbers if you decide to roll with him.

49ers | Michael Crabtree solid in return

Sun, 01 Dec 2013 16:34:36 -0800

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (Achilles') posted two receptions for 68 yards in his regular season debut in Week 13 against the St. Louis Rams.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree appears to have made it through the game with no setbacks, but he will obviously be re-evaluated Monday. He is a solid WR3/4 or flex fantasy play in most leagues going forward, and he could re-emerged as a WR2/3 by season's end.

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (Achilles') practiced in full all week and will make his season debut against the St. Louis Rams in Week 13, according to head coach Jim Harbaugh.

Fantasy Tip: Temper your expectations for Crabtree for the remainder of this season. He's an explosive weapon when healthy, but he may not be close to full speed until next season.

Tue, 26 Nov 2013 14:21:39 -0800

The San Francisco 49ers officially activated WR Michael Crabtree (Achilles') from the Physically Unable to Perform list Tuesday, Nov. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree may already be owned in most leagues. If he's not, he's worth adding, but don't drop a significant player to do so. Crabtree will likely be eased in and probably won't make much of a fantasy impact in your playoffs.

The San Francisco 49ers will activate WR Michael Crabtree (Achilles') from the Physically Unable to Perform list Tuesday, Nov. 26. He's expected to play in Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: He should be picked up in the majority of leagues, but give him a week or two to get acclimated. If he can quickly get into rhythm with the offense, he could be a decent WR3 in the fantasy playoffs.
