Colin Kaepernick: Michael Crabtree 'a step or two quicker'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick said top receiver Michael Crabtree was not fully over his Achilles injury late last season. "He’s a step or two quicker now," Kaepernick told CSNBayArea.com. "He has a burst out of his routes. He has burst when he catches the ball. (He) looks really good out there."

Crabtree missed the first 11 games last year due to a torn Achilles he suffered in May 2013. "Even at the end of last season, he wasn’t 100 percent," Kaepernick said. "And he was making plays for us. I’m excited to see what he’s going to do, now that he’s 100 percent."


Michael Crabtree doing it all in training camp


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2014) The 49ers' official website says receiver Michael Crabtree is "bursting off the ball and showing no signs of his Achilles tear in 2013," adding Crabtree "looks better than ever."

Crabtree is making one-handed catches 30 yards downfield, beating press coverage at the line of scrimmage and developing chemistry with the quarterbacks, the report said.


Michael Crabtree showing '2012-like burst'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/16/2014) 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree missed the first 11 games last season while recovering from a torn left Achilles. He wasn't 100 percent when he played.

But this offseason, Crabtree "demonstrated 2012-like burst during the limited time he worked with quarterback Colin Kaepernick," the team's official website said. Crabtree is "as healthy as ever while he enters a contract season. Expect big things."


Kaepernick says Michael Crabtree has 'burst' back


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/20/2014) 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick said in an interview with the media Thursday that receiver Michael Crabtree is all the way back from last year's Achilles injury, which cost him 11 games.

"At the end of last year he still wasn't 100 percent," Kaepernick said. "He has a lot more burst to him now. Looks really good."


Michael Crabtree has a pretty good history with Kaepernick


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/6/2014) Just to make it clear to those Fantasy owners considering Michael Crabtree, we went back and took note of every single completion between the receiver and Colin Kaepernick, both in the regular season and in the postseason. 

In effectively 19 games of play together, Crabtree has 96 catches for 1,374 yards and nine touchdowns. The average of that is 5.05 catches for 72.3 yards per game and a smidge less than a touchdown every other week. Multiply those numbers by 16 games and you'd have a season in which Crabtree has nearly 81 catches for 1,157 yards and between 7 or 8 touchdowns. Not bad for a quality No. 2 Fantasy receiver, eh? 


49ers could pay Michael Crabtree next


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/5/2014) Now that the 49ers have signed quarterback Colin Kaepernick to a long-term extension, the next deal coming could be for impending free agent receiver Michael Crabtree, reports ESPN.

The report says "Crabtree becomes the next priority," although no deal is imminent. He is scheduled to make $3.5 million this season.

The downside for Crabtree now that Kaepernick is signed is he could be eligible for the franchise tag next offseason. 


Anquan Boldin excited for 49ers offense


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/3/2014) 49ers receiver Anquan Boldin said he's excited for the offense this year with Michael Crabtree coming back at 100 percent. Crabtree missed the first 11 games last year with an Achilles injury.

Boldin said in an interview with CBSSports.com that Colin Kaepernick now has all of his weapons back with Crabtree, Boldin and Vernon Davis. Quinton Patton is expected to take on a bigger role, and the 49ers have an excellent backfield with Frank Gore and the potential of second-year running back Marcus Lattimore, who is coming back from a devastating knee injury at South Carolina in 2012.

"It's going to be big," Boldin said of Crabtree being back. "It's going to be major for us. Toward the end of the season you were able to see a glimpse of what it's like to have me and him on the field at the same time, and then you have Vernon working out of the tight end position. And we have the young guy in Quinton Patton coming along. We were expecting him to play well. With all four of us on the field and Frank coming out of the backfield and getting Lattimore healthy, it's going to be tough. It's going to be a potent offense, and we're looking to make a run this year."


49ers to approach Michael Crabtree about extension


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/6/2014) With receiver Michael Crabtree entering the final year of his rookie deal, the 49ers will approach him about an extension, reports CSNBayArea.com. "The big question is whether they can agree on terms for a multi-year deal," the report said.

49ers in hunt for 'downfield receiver'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/3/2014) For the 49ers to overtake Seattle, they must find a downfield receiver to complement Michael Crabtree and tight end Vernon Davis, according to the Sacramento Bee. The paper mentions Texas A&M's Mike Evans and Oregon State's Brandin Cooks as potential draft targets.

"Either way, the key is to make the Seattle defense scoot off the line of scrimmage," the paper said.

Veteran receiver Anquan Boldin is set to become a free agent.


Michael Crabtree's game-winning TD denied by Richard Sherman


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/20/2014) 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree was unable to come down with the game-winning touchdown reception during Sunday's NFC Championship game against the Seahawks in Seattle.

With the 49ers at Seattle's 18-yard-line with 22 seconds remaining and needing a touchdown to win the game, Richard Sherman deflected a pass intended for Crabtree in the end zone, and Malcolm Smith came down with the interception that eliminated his team. Crabtree caught four of the eight passes thrown his way for 52 yards in a 23-17 loss.

Nine injured 49ers cleared for NFC Championship


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/19/2014) The 49ers listed the following players as active for Sunday's NFC Championship game against the Seahawks in Seattle, despite being on the injury report: linebacker NaVorro Bowman (wrist), linebacker Ahmad Brooks (illness), wide receiver Michael Crabtree (wrist), defensive lineman Demarcus Dobbs  (knee, shoulder), running back Frank Gore (knee), defensive back Carlos Rogers (hamstring), linebacker Dan Skuta (foot), defensive lineman Justin Smith (shoulder) and defensive lineman Will Tukuafu (knee).

Frank Gore, Michael Crabtree probable for Sunday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1/17/2014) The 49ers have just two offensive players on the injury report for the NFC Championship game against the Seahawks, and both are expected to play through their injuries. Wide receiver Michael Crabtree (wrist) and running back Frank Gore (knee) are both probable for Sunday's game. 

Michael Crabtree hard to trust at Seattle


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(1/16/2014) The 49ers play the Seahawks in the NFC Championship Game in Seattle on Sunday, and receiver Michael Crabtree will be looking for his first quality outing against the Seahawks in his career.

It's hard to count on Crabtree against the Seahawks since they have a tremendous secondary, and he has a miserable history against this defense. In his past four meetings, Crabtree has 18 catches for 225 yards and no touchdowns, and he's averaging just 5.3 Fantasy points.

The Seahawks held him to four catches for 40 yards in Week 14, and Seattle has allowed just Marques Colston in last week's Divisional round to reach double digits in Fantasy points in the past five games.

Crabtree was great in the Wild Card round against the Packers with eight catches for 125 yards on 13 targets. He followed that up with a tough game against the Panthers with three catches for 26 yards on seven targets.

Based on his inconsistency, the matchup at Seattle and his history with the Seahawks, we consider him just a low-end starting option at best in any Playoff Challenge leagues.


Will Seahawks' secondary get away with overly physical play?


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/15/2014) Over the last four years, fewer penalties have been called during the playoffs than during the regular season, according to nflpenalties.com. This year's playoff games are averaging about two fewer penalties per game.

According to the Sacramento Bee, that raises the question: Will the Seahawks' secondary get away with crossing the line against 49ers receivers Michael Crabtree, Anquan Boldin and Vernon Davis?

Seattle led the league in pass interference penalties during the regular season. Cornerback Richard Sherman drew nine flags overall. 

"They're one of those teams that is willing to get a couple of (defensive holding, illegal contact or interference) penalties to be able to play the way they do," Giants receiver Hakeem Nicks told the New York Post. "Out of 60 snaps, they're willing to trade three or four (penalties). They just take their chances."

Seattle coach Pete Carroll was asked if his team might benefit from an official swallowing his whistle in Sunday's NFC Championship Game. "I don't know if it's going to be an advantage or not," he said. "It will be equal, I'm sure."


Michael Crabtree downplays shoulder injury


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/13/2014) 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree had to leave the playoff win at Carolina early after being thrown to the ground by cornerback Captain Munnerlyn. Crabtree missed only three snaps, but his shoulder appeared to bother him throughout the game, reports CSNBayArea.com.

Crabtree played 41 snaps and caught three passes for 26 yards. “I’m not hurt,” Crabtree told the website. “I’m just playing ball.”


Michael Crabtree limited against Panthers


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/12/2014) San Francisco wide receiver Michael Crabtree was limited against Carolina.

Crabtree caught just three passes for 26 yards. He was targeted seven times. Aside from Anquan Boldin, the Panthers did a solid job stopping San Francisco's receiving threats. Crabtree will look for more next week against Seattle.


Michael Crabtree good to go


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/12/2014) San Francisco WR Michael Crabtree is active against Carolina.

Crabtree came into the week listed as probable due to a wrist injury. Crabtree was able to fully participate in practice this week.


Niners in good shape for playoff battle


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/10/2014) The 49ers are quite healthy heading into their playoff clash Sunday at Carolina. Only cornerback Carlos Rogers (hamstring) and linebacker Dan Skuta (foot), who are listed as questionable, are threatened with inactivity.

The probables are linebacker NaVorro Bowman (wrist), wide receiver Michael Crabtree (wrist), defensive tackles Justin Smith (shoulder) and Demarcus Dobbs (knee, shoulder) and running back Frank Gore (knee).


Panthers didn't have to deal with Michael Crabtree in first meeting


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/6/2014) When the Panthers went to San Francisco and shut down the 49ers in Week 10, San Francisco didn't have No. 1 receiver Michael Crabtree. He's since come back strong from his torn Achilles, as he showed Sunday by catching eight passes for 125 yards at Green Bay.

It was Crabtree's second 100-yard game in the last three weeks, and his third postseason game with at least 100 receiving yards. Crabtree's 17-yard reception on 3rd-and-10 extended San Francisco's game-winning drive. His performance prompted coach Jim Harbaugh to wax poetic.

"People talk about cold weather and it'd be tough to catch balls," Harbaugh said, per the Bay Area News Group. "But the greatest catcher of all time, Michael Crabtree, catches everything. It's unbelievable.

"In the northern snowlands, down to the tropics' sunny scenes, he's catching the football. Where they throw a football, he'll be catching it."

San Fran visits Carolina on Sunday in the divisional playoffs.


Michael Crabtree dominates with 125 yards


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2014) 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree dominated the Packers' secondary in the playoff win, catching eight of a game-high 13 targets for 125 yards. It was Crabtree's third 100-yard receiving game in the playoffs.

Crabtree started fast, catching four balls for 70 yards on San Francisco's first scoring drive. It didn't hurt that Green Bay lost its top corner, Sam Shields, to a knee injury in the first quarter.

Crabtree visits the Panthers next Sunday in the divisional playoffs. Crabtree did not play in the Week 10 meeting with Carolina, as he was recovering from a torn Achilles tendon.


Frank Gore, Michael Crabtree ready to roll


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2014) 49ers running back Frank Gore (knee) and receiver Michael Crabtree (quadricep) are active as expected for the playoff game at Green Bay after being listed as probable.

Michael Crabtree good to go


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/3/2014) San Francisco WR Michael Crabtree is probable entering the playoffs.

Crabtree is listed on the injury report with a quadriceps injury. He was able to put in a limited practice Friday.


Michael Crabtree opening things up for Anquan Boldin


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/1/2014) The return of receiver Michael Crabtree has changed the way defenses play the 49ers, coach Jim Harbaugh said Wednesday.

“He’s a huge threat," Harbaugh said. "I think last week they basically matched [Cardinals corner Patrick] Peterson up on him the whole game and we had a mismatch with Anquan Boldin. So, I think defenses are trying to do things to stop him now, which opens other people up.”

Crabtree caught three ball for 29 yards Week 17, while Boldin hauled in nine passes for 145 yards and a touchdown. The 49ers visit Green Bay in a playoff game Sunday.


Michael Crabtree does little in Week 17


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree failed to make much of an impact during Sunday's regular season finale at Arizona.

Crabtree caught passes for 5, 11 and then 13 yards all during a second-quarter drive. He was targeted twice and was held without a grab in the second half. He caught three of the eight passes thrown his way for 29 yards in a 23-20 victory.

Through five games, Crabtree has 19 catches for 284 yards and one touchdown. The 49ers will travel to Green Bay for a showdown against the Packers in the opening round of the playoffs.

Eight Niners get the green light for Week 17


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) The 49ers have labeled the following players as active for Sunday's regular season finale against the Cardinals in Week 17: NaVorro Bowman (wrist), Tarell Brown (ribs),  Michael Crabtree (wrist, ankle), Frank Gore (knee), Vance McDonald (ankle), Kassim Osgood (shin), Dan Skuta (foot) and Justin Smith (shoulder).
