49ers | Michael Crabtree feeling healthy

Thu, 09 Oct 2014 18:06:43 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (foot) said Thursday, Oct. 9, that nothing is wrong with his foot that caused him to play limited snaps in Week 4 and Week 5.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree has struggled in the past two games, but assuming he is telling the truth about his foot, he could be a sneaky play at FantasyScore in Week 6. He will take up 13% percent of the cap ($,6500), but when he was healthy in Week 2 and Week 3, he logged a combined 17 catches for 162 yards and two scores.

49ers | Michael Crabtree has full practice

Fri, 03 Oct 2014 16:46:07 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (foot) was listed as having full participation in practice Friday, Oct. 3, and he is listed as probable for the Week 5 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Tip: Kansas City ranks eighth in the NFL against the pass by allowing just 221.5 yards per game through the air, but they have yielded eight passing touchdowns and two pass plays of 40 or more yards. The potential is there for Crabtree to be a decent WR2 or flex play in FantasyScore at $6500 (or 13 percent of the salary cap).

49ers | Michael Crabtree fully participates

Thu, 02 Oct 2014 16:34:20 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (foot) participated fully in practice Thursday, Oct. 2.

Fantasy Tip: There are better, more consistent options at wide receiver than Crabtree. Nevertheless, he will cost $6,500 on FantasyScore if you want to roster him.

Wed, 01 Oct 2014 17:43:04 -0700

49ers | Michael Crabtree probable

Fri, 26 Sep 2014 15:13:16 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (quadriceps) practiced in full Friday, Sept. 26, and is probable for Week 4 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree has an excellent matchup against the Iggles, and if Vernon Davis (ankle, knee) can't play, that'll mean even more targets for Crabtree. FantasyScore is a PPR setup, meaning Crabtree has a great chance to return profit on his $7,200 (14.4% of cap) salary.

49ers | Michael Crabtree fully participates

Thu, 25 Sep 2014 16:36:07 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (quadriceps) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 25.

Fantasy Tip: He should still be able to play in what could be a shootout with the Philadelphia Eagles. His price of $7,200 on FantasyScore is definitely reasonable.

49ers | Stevie Johnson has big game

Sun, 21 Sep 2014 20:40:39 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Stevie Johnson led the team with 103 receiving yards in the Week 3 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, and it was the first time a receiver on the team other than WRs Michael Crabtree or Anquan Boldin had more than 100 yards since WR Josh Morgan did it in 2010.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson can't be relied on for this kind of production often. The Niners abandoned the run game surprisingly, and the Arizona cornerbacks forced Colin Kaepernick to go to his third receiver more often.

49ers | Michael Crabtree active

Sun, 07 Sep 2014 13:01:26 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (calf) is active for Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree should start and be a solid part of the passing game. Crabtree is correctly priced at $5,900 at FantasyScore and probably will not return much of a profit. Crabtree could also be considered a risk because of his injury.

49ers | Michael Crabtree questionable

Fri, 05 Sep 2014 15:05:45 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (calf) was limited in practice Friday, Sept. 5, and is listed as questionable for Week 1 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: The Dallas defense could easily be the worst in the NFL entering the season opener. But how often will the Niners, a ground and pound team, be forced to throw the ball? And will Crabtree be 100 percent healthy? These are definitely things to consider before paying him in FantasyScore at a salary of $5,900 (11.8% of cap).

49ers | Michael Crabtree slowed by calf

Thu, 04 Sep 2014 17:54:59 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (calf) was a limited participant in practice because of a calf injury Thursday, Sept. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Keep an eye on Crabtree's status heading into Week 1. He is worth starting against a suspect Dallas defense, but he will count for 11.8% of your cap ($5,900) at FantasyScore so make sure he is up to speed before paying for him.

49ers | Michael Crabtree misses practice

Wed, 03 Sep 2014 17:23:51 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (calf) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree has traditionally been a player rested during mid-week practices due to his injury history, so check back later this week for a clearer picture on his status for Week 1.

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.

Sat, 09 Aug 2014 09:20:36 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (hamstring) should return to practice in the near future, according to head coach Jim Harbaugh.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree can take his time in his recovery because the start of the regular season is a few weeks away. Crabtree should be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 wide receiver in most leagues if he is healthy.

Fri, 01 Aug 2014 22:21:58 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (hamstring) is nursing a sore hamstring, and he should be back within two weeks.

Fantasy Tip: The good news is that Crabtree hasn't had a recurrence of his Achilles' or foot injuries. Continue to draft him as a WR2/3 and hope that this injury does not linger into the regular season.

Fri, 20 Jun 2014 07:44:42 -0700

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

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.

"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.
