49ers | Coach praises Michael Crabtree

Thu, 13 Nov 2014 10:33:32 -0800

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree was praised by head coach Jim Harbaugh, who said he has no issues with him. Harbaugh said he does not think Crabtree has any issue with how he is used in the team's offense. "I don't think so," Harbaugh said when asked if he thought Crabtree was unhappy in the offense. "Seems to be doing a fantastic job and getting the ball a lot."

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree only had three catches for 62 yards in Week 10 as the team continues to run the ball. It is tough to justify his $6,000 FantasyScore price as his role continues to be reduced.
