Tomsula: 49ers 'absolutely' want Michael Crabtree back


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/19/2015) 49ers WR Michael Crabtree is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent in March, but new coach Jim Tomsula hopes that doesn't mean he's leaving San Francisco. 

Speaking to the media at the Indianapolis scouting combine on Thursday, Tomsula was asked if he wanted Crabtree back.

"Absolutely," he said. "Those talks are happening this week. I don't have the checkbook, so I'm not in those particular conversations, but I do know that leaving San Francisco, heading to the airport the other day, that everything was lined up to talk to all of our people." 


Michael Crabtree good to go for 49ers


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/28/2014) The 49ers will have wideout Michael Crabtree Week 17 against the Cardinals.

Crabtree came into the contest listed as probable due to a knee injury. The club will also have Chris Culliver, Brandon Lloyd, Marcus Martin and Justin Smith. All four players were also listed as probable. 

Bruce Ellington, who came into the game listed as questionable due to a hamstring injury, will give it a go. He's the only player listed as questionable who will attempt to play through his injury. 


49ers rule out three for Sunday against the Cardinals


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2014) The 49ers have deemed running back Carlos Hyde (ankle), wide receiver Steve Johnson (knee) and safety Eric Reid (concussion) as out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

It is the second straight game out for both Hyde and Johnson. Hyde finishes his rooke season with 83 carries for 333 yards and four touchdowns while Johnson had 35 catches for 435 yards and three touchdowns this year.

Wide receiever Bruce Ellington (hamstring), cornerbacks Tramaine Brock (hamstring) and Perrish Cox (shoulder) and linebacker Ahmad Brooks (thumb) are all listed as questionable.

Michael Crabtree (knee), Chris Culliver (knee), Brandon Lloyd (groin), Marcus Martin (illness) and Justin Smith (back) are all listed as probable.

The 49ers are currently 6 1/2-point favorites against Arizona Sunday.


Michael Crabtree doesn't sound eager to return to 49ers


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/24/2014) Impending free-agent receiver Michael Crabtree was asked Wednesday if he wants to return to the 49ers next season. "It depends," Crabtree said, per the San Francisco Chronicle. "I don't even want to talk about it."

Crabtree is finishing up a disappointing season. He's played every game but has only 64 catches for 657 yards and four touchdowns, a far cry from the 85 grabs, 1,105 yards and nine touchdowns he put up in his last full season, 2012.


49ers WR Michael Crabtree plays sparingly vs. Chargers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree managed just one catch for five yards in his team's 38-35 overtime loss to the Chargers in Week 16.

Crabtree, who was questionable to play Saturday due to a knee injury, remained on the sidelines for large portions of the game, even donning a baseball cap at one point. It appeared he was set to play only in an emergency situation. However, the receiving corps was struck by multiple injuries, leaving the team to turn to Crabtree late, and he recorded his only catch in overtime.

Crabtree will try and heal up in time to serve a larger role in his team's season finale against the Cardinals in Week 17.


49ers' Frank Gore, Michael Crabtree active vs. Chargers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2014) 49ers running back Frank Gore (concussion) and wide receiver Michael Crabtree (knee) are active for Saturday's Week 16 matchup with the Chargers.

Both players were listed as questionable on the team's final injury report, though it was reported early Saturday that Gore would in fact suit up for the game. Crabtree has yet to miss a game this season.

Offensive tackle Anthony Davis (concussion) is also active after being listed as questionable. The team had several players listed as probable and all are active Saturday, including cornerbacks Perrish Cox (ankle) and Chris Culliver (knee), safety Bubba Ventrone (groin), linebacker Michael Wilhoite (hip), tackle Jonathan Martin (illness), center Marcus Martin (knee), tight end Kyle Nelson (back) and defensive linemen Justin Smith (back), Quinton Dial (knee) and Tony Jerod-Eddie (foot).


49ers unveil lengthy injury report for Saturday game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2014) The 49ers have ruled the following players out for Saturday's game against San Diego: Linebacker Chris Borland (ankle), cornerback Tramaine Brock (hamstring), running back Carlos Hyde (ankle), wide receiver Stevie Johnson (knee).

Linebacker Ahmad Brooks (thumb), wide receiver Michael Crabtree (knee), right tackle Anthony Davis (concussion), running back Frank Gore (concussion), safety Raymond Vetrone (groin) and linebacker Michael Wilhoite (hip) were labeled as questionable.

Meanwhile, cornerback Perrish Cox (ankle), cornerback Chris Culliver (knee), defensive tackle Quinton Dial (knee), defensive end Tony Jerod-Eddie (foot), right tackle Jonathan Martin (illness), center Marcus Martin (knee), long snapper Kyle Nelson (back) and defensive end Justin Smith (back) were all deemed as probable.


49ers WR Michael Crabtree misses practice Wednesday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2014) 49ers wideout Michael Crabtree did not practice Wednesday due to a knee injury, reports CSNBayArea.com. Crabtree, who has not cleared 60 receiving yards since Week 11, isn't believed to be seriously hurt.

He's scheduled to play the Chargers on Saturday night. If Crabtree can't go, it could mean increased targets for fellow starter Anquan Boldin.


49ers' Michael Crabtree does little Week 15


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) San Francisco wideout Michael Crabtree did little Week 15 against the Seahawks.

Crabtree pulled in three catches, but gained just 19 yards. The entire 49ers' passing offense struggled, leading to poor games by all the team's receivers. Again, Crabtree was mainly used on shorter routes, averaging just 6.3 yards per catch. He'll take on the Chargers Week 16.


Need to see more from Michael Crabtree


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/8/2014) Wide receiver Michael Crabtree suddenly became quarterback Colin Kaepernick's preferred option Week 14 at Oakland with 14 targets, three more than his season high and four more than in his previous two games combined.

Of course, he wasn't so productive with those targets, picking up 56 yards on nine catches, so at this point, Fantasy owners would just prefer they go to Anquan Boldin. Outside of maybe PPR leagues, nobody is activating Crabtree based on this performance.

For more major takeaways from Week 14, be sure to check out my latest post to the Fantasy Football Today blog.


49ers' Michael Crabtree hauls in nine passes


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) San Francisco wideout Michael Crabtree hauled in nine passes Week 14 against the Raiders.

Crabtree gained just 56 yards on his nine receptions. He was mostly used as a short-yardage option, with his longest catch of the day going for 18 yards. He averaged just 6.2 yards per catch. Crabtree was one of the few dependable targets for Colin Kaepernick. He received a team-high 14 targets. 

Crabtree will look for more Week 15 against the Seahawks. 


Michael Crabtree among 49ers actives Week 14


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) The 49ers will have wideout Michael Crabtree Week 14 against the Raiders.

Crabtree came into the game listed as probable due to a knee injury. He was never really a threat to miss the contest. 

The team will have most of their probable players for the game. Chris Culliver, Bruce Ellington, Carlos Hyde, Stevie Johnson, Ray McDonald, Justin Smith and Joe Staley are all listed as active. All seven were considered probable.


49ers unveil final Week 14 injury report


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/5/2014) The 49ers released their final Week 14 injury report and listed RB Carlos Hyde (shoulder), CB Chris Culliver (shoulder), DT Ray McDonald (finger), WR Michael Crabtree (knee), DE Justin Smith (back), WR Bruce Ellington (ankle), WR Steve Johnson (knee), WR Brandon Lloyd (quadricep) and OT Joe Staley (illness) as probable.

Cornerback Tramaine Brock (hamstring) and safety Raymond Ventrone (groin) are listed as questionable. Offensive tackle Anthony Davis (concussion), defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey (forearm) and tight end Vance McDonald (back) were ruled out.

The 49ers take on the Raiders Week 14.


Knee injury limits 49ers WR Michael Crabtree


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/3/2014) 49ers wideout Michael Crabtree was limited in Wednesday's practice with a knee injury. He got banged up in last Thursday's loss to the Seahawks, finishing with three catches for 10 yards.

San Francisco visits the Raiders on Sunday.


49ers WR Michael Crabtree quiet in Week 13 after rib, knee issues


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/28/2014) 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree caught all three of his targets for jut 10 yards in his team's 19-3 loss to the Seahawks in Week 13.

Crabtree was hit by an injury almost immediately on the team's first drive but was able to resume play. The team had announced that he was dealing with a rib injury, but coach Jim Harbaugh added after the game that the receiver was also suffering from a knee injury. He's in line for a few extra days of rest going into his Week 14 matchup against the Raiders.


49ers WR Michael Crabtree returns after rib injury


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/27/2014) 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree was announced as questionable to return to Thursday's game against the Seahawks with a rib injury, but came back into the game on his team's next drive.

Crabtree appeared to suffer a leg or ankle injury on the team's first drive but instead was ruled to have a rib injury. He had just one catch for five yards at the time of the injury but should be good to go.


49ers' Michael Crabtree hauls in five catches in Week 12 win


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree caught five of his seven targets during the 49ers victory over Washington Week 12.

Crabtree’s 58 receiving yards continued his streak of not producing a 100-yard receiving game during the 2014 season. The 49ers next play Thursday against Seattle.


Michael Crabtree shows off big-play ability


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree showed some signs of life in Week 11, in a 16-10 win over the Giants

Crabtree hauled in just three of the eight passes thrown his way, but showed the big-play ability we have been hoping for when he did catch it. Crabtree scored on a 48-yard play that saw him fight through tackles and race past much of the Giants' secondary for the score, his fourth of the season and first in the last four games.  

Crabtree had no passes for more than 40 yards through the first eight games of the season, but now has two over the last two games. He has still been a big part of the team's game plan, with five games of at least seven targets in a row, he just hasn't been getting the job done. Hopefully his recent run can get him going down the stretch.


49ers WR Michael Crabtree records fourth TD in Week 11 win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree had his first touchdown in four games and fourth touchdown this season during a 16-10 win Week 11 at N.Y. Giants.

Crabtree finished with a team-high 85 receiving yards on three catches. He did most of his damage on a 48-yard catch-and-run touchdown with 11:38 left in the third quarter, which put San Francisco ahead 16-7.

The 85 receiving yards were a season high for Crabtree, who has surpassed 80 yards three times this season. The 49ers are back action Week 12 vs. Washington.


Coach tries to quell controversy regarding 49ers WR Crabtree


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/13/2014) Jim Harbaugh claims all is well in regard to his relationship with Michael Crabtree and that of the receiver with the 49ers.

Some eyebrows were raised when Crabtree brushed past Harbaugh in the locker room after the Sunday win and when the former discussed his dwindling role in the offense following the game. But Harbaugh has tried to calm the waters.

"I don't think [there's a problem]," he said via the Sacramento Bee. "Seems to be doing a fantastic job and getting the ball a lot."

Crabtree, who has played less than 70 percent of the snaps over the past two games, has exceeded 10 targets only in Week 3. He has 21 catches for 237 yards and just one touchdown over the last six games combined. Those are rather meager numbers, especially considering he's in his contract year.


49ers' Michael Crabtree catches three passes in Week 10 victory


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree hauled in three receptions for 62 yards during the 49ers’ 27-24 overtime victory over the Saints in Week 10.

Crabtree was targeted eight times, which was second on the team behind Anquan Boldin’s 15 targets.

Carbtree did contribute a big play, with a 51-yard reception late in the fourth quarter, which setup kicker Phil Dawson’s 45-yard field goal to send the game into overtime.  

The 49ers will play at the New York Giants in Week 11.


49ers WR Michael Crabtree working to improve numbers


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/6/2014) 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree is well aware his production needs to improve after he produced just 37 catches on 60 targets through the first eight games. His seven drops in eight games are the second-most in the NFL, according to ProFootballFocus.com.

"I always have high expectations for myself," Crabtree said, per the San Jose Mercury News. "It ain’t where I want it to be, that’s why I work hard every day, try to catch every pass thrown my way. Whatever they give me, I work my hardest to work with it."

Crabtree quickly brushed off the notion that his poor numbers could be related to a minor foot injury he suffered Sept. 28 against the Eagles, which only briefly took him out of the game.

"What you talking about about a foot," Crabtree responed. "I’ve played eight (four) games since then. You’re talking about my foot. We’re good. That’s not even a question you need to ask me."


Time to shy away from Michael Crabtree?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/3/2014) If you own Michael Crabtree in Fantasy, you might want to think about sitting him for the time being. He has yet to have even a 50-yard game since topping 80 in Weeks 2 and 3. He actually had one of his better games during that stretch Week 9 against St. Louis, going for 40 yards on five catches.

I don't know if it's because his foot isn't 50 percent or because Anquan Boldin and Steve Johnson are just that good, but for whatever reason, Colin Kaepernick doesn't have much confidence in him right now. Generally speaking, the third most productive wide receiver on the 49ers isn't going to be a great Fantasy option.

For other major takeaways from Week 9, be sure to check out my latest post to the Fantasy Football Today blog.


Anquan Boldin leads 49ers receivers in Week 9 loss vs. Rams


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) 49ers wide receiver Anquan Boldin was featured in the passing game Sunday, recording a team-high six receptions and 93 yards while scoring the offense's only touchdown in his team's 13-10 loss to the Rams in Week 9.

Boldin drifted past the coverage as quarterback Colin Kaepernick scrambled on a second-quarter play, snagging a pass while wide open at the 10-yard line and racing into the end zone for the 27-yard score. It's the second time in three weeks he's managed to deliver at least 90 yards and a touchdown.

The rest of the team's passing attack was largely held at bay in the loss, with Steve Johnson catching three passes on five targets for 41 yards and Michael Crabtree managing just 40 yards while grabbing five of his nine targets. Tight end Vernon Davis could only deliver two catches for 19 yards on three targets, and no other receiver caught more than one pass.

The 49ers will hope to bounce back in Week 10 when they head to New Orleans to square off with the Saints.


Steve Johnson: 49ers receivers aren't a 'bunch of pansies'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/30/2014) 49ers wide receiver Steve Johnson has played the role of star receiver in the past and has had pretty good success in the role, totaling more than 1,000 yards in three straight seasons from 2010-12 with the Bills.

However, in his first year with the 49ers, he's competing for playing time and targets with a pretty deep group of receivers that include Anquan Boldin, Michael Crabtree and Brandon Lloyd

Johnson, though, is content with the situation. His focus is helping the 49ers make the playoffs, which would result in Johnson's first playoff appearance in his seven-year career.

"No frustration at all," he said, per CSNBayArea.com. “"(The) only sense of frustration is being a competitor, you know, wanting to do more. But it ain’t like there’s a bunch of pansies in front of me.

"It’s cool to a certain extent. When we get in those situations, in the heat of the moment, of course, I’m a warrior. I’m ready to go out there. We got great guys out there on the field. You can’t be frustrated. It’s not going to look right."
