Hard to trust any 49ers receivers right now


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2014) Though the 49ers have moved the ball well through the air this season, it hasn't led to much consistent success for their wide receivers, and that may not change much moving forward.

Anquan Boldin leads the team in yards, but has reached double figures in Fantasy scoring just once this season, in Week 6. He had 50 yards to finish third on the team in Week 7's blowout loss to the Broncos, behind both Steve Johnson and Brandon Lloyd. In fact, Lloyd and Johnson are both averaging more than 40 yards receiving per game, despite routinely finishing third and fourth on the team in snaps played among wide receivers.

The elephant in the room is Michael Crabtree, who should be the team's best option in the passing game. And yet, he has just seven more yards than Johnson on nearly 20 more targets. Crabtree has never really been a big-play receiver, but there is reason to think his current yards per catch number of 10.1 will rise close to his career mark of 12.7, which would obviously improve his value.

At this point, it is awfully tough to rely on any of the 49ers receivers, even if the team is putting the ball in the air 33.1 times per game, an increase of more than seven from last year. Crabtree might make for a nice buy-low candidate for Fantasy, but there also may not be much room for him to breakout until one or more players takes a back seat. 


49ers WR Michael Crabtree held to 27 yards in Week 7 loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2014) 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree caught four of his seven targets for just 27 yards in his team's 42-17 loss to the Broncos in Week 7.

While the 49ers averaged 11.1 yards per reception as a team Sunday, top options Crabtree (6.8 YPC) and Anquan Boldin (7.1 YPC) could find no room to work, leading to disappointing performances despite the offense dialing up 46 passes in the loss. Crabtree hasn't topped 50 yards in any of his last four games, and he owns 32 receptions, 322 yards and three touchdowns in seven games this year. The 49ers have a bye in Week 8 before facing the Rams the following week.


Michael Crabtree burns rookie for 32-yard touchdown


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/14/2014) 49ers wideout Michael Crabtree got Rams rookie cornerback E.J. Gaines turned around on a double move in the third quarter Monday. Colin Kaepernick found a wide-open Crabtree for a 32-yard score, his third touchdown catch this season.

Crabtree caught three of eight targets for 49 yards, his third straight game with under 50 receiving yards. He'll visit the Broncos in Week 7.


Michael Crabtree held to one catch


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree was limited to one reception in Sunday's win over the Chiefs, the first time he's caught just one pass since Nov. 13, 2011 against the Giants. Crabtree was targeted four times but managed only a 16-yard catch.

Crabtree has 25 catches for 246 yards and two touchdowns entering Week 6 at the Rams.


Michael Crabtree, Frank Gore among cleared 49ers


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) A slew of 49ers who were on the injury report are active for Week 5 against the Chiefs.

Wideout Michael Crabtree (foot) and running back Frank Gore (back) head the list and are joined by safety Antoine Bethea (ankle), tight end Vance McDonald (knee), safety Eric Reid (hamstring), defensive tackle Tony Jerod-Eddie (shoulder), nose tackle Ian Williams (ankle) and punter Andy Lee (ankle).


49ers release final Week 5 injury report


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2014) The 49ers listed center Marcus Martin (knee) as doubtful on the team's final injury report for Sunday's Week 5 game against the Chiefs.

Six 49ers were listed as questionable to play, including cornerback Tramaine Brock (toe), offensive tackle Anthony Davis (knee, ankle), tight ends Vernon Davis (back) and Vance McDonald (knee), safety Eric Reid (hamstring) and nose tackle Ian Williams (ankle).

Six additional players were listed as probable, including safety Antoine Bethea (ankle), wide receiver Michael Crabtree (foot), running back Frank Gore (back), punter Andy Lee (right ankle) and defensive ends Tony Jerod-Eddie (shoulder) and Justin Smith (not injury related).


Michael Crabtree's foot something to monitor


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/29/2014) Wide receiver Michael Crabtree has a history of foot problems, having had two surgeries on his left foot since 2009, so his exit in the first quarter Week 4 against Philadelphia because of an issue with the same foot, as brief as it was, is cause for concern in Fantasy.

He seemed to move well enough after his return, but judging by the treatment he received on the sidelines, rolling a ball on the bottom of his foot, I doubt we've heard the last of this injury. He may have some chronic soreness in there that will send him to the sidelines with each flareup.

That's complete speculation, of course, but speculation is part of the game. What it means for Fantasy owners is that they may want to consider shopping Crabtree -- not now, when the first thing the other party would do is go to his player page and read this update, but after his next big game. He had two in a row prior to this one, so another one is coming.

The goal, of course, isn't to dump Crabtree but to use his value to secure something a little bit safer, especially if you're relying on him as your No. 1 wide receiver.


Michael Crabtree finishes without issue


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree, who briefly left the win over the Eagles with a foot injury, did not appear hampered upon his return. He finished with five catches for 43 yards, on a team-high eight targets.

Crabtree's day could have been bigger. In the third quarter he broke wide open on a slant near the goal line. But Colin Kaepernick's throw led him too much. Crabtree's foot didn't appear to bother him early in the fourth when he stretched for a 25-yard sideline gain.

Crabtree faces the Chiefs in Week 5.

(9/28/2014) 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree returned from his foot injury in the second quarter against the Eagles.

49ers list lengthy injury report for Week 4


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/26/2014) The 49ers have listed 10 players on the final injury report leading up to Week 4 at home against Philadelphia. Center Marcus Martin (knee) is the only player from that list that has been officially ruled out for the game.

Deemed questionable were safety Antoine Bethea (ankle), cornerback Tramaine Brock (toe), tackle Anthony Davis (hamstring), tight end Vernon Davis (ankle, knee) and tight end Vance McDonald (knee).

Wide receiver Michael Crabtree (quaricep), running back Frank Gore (back), defensive end Justin Smith (not injury related) and linebacker Patrick Willis (wrist) were all labeled probable for Sunday.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/25/2014) San Francisco wide receiver Michael Crabtree was added to the injury report Thursday.

Crabtree was listed with a quad injury, but was able to practice in full. Crabtree should be good to go Sunday as long as he continues to practice Friday. 


Steve Johnson complicates 49ers' receiving corps


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/25/2014) After looking every bit like the third wide receiver for an offense that can't sustain three wide receivers in Weeks 1 and 2, catching a combined four passes for 39 yards, Steve Johnson came out of nowhere with nine catches for 103 yards Week 3 at Arizona, raising a bunch of questions about the 49ers receiving corps.

The offense still isn't built to sustain three wide receivers, but the only way we can count on any of them in Fantasy is if we figure out who's going to play the biggest role.

Michael Crabtree appears the one safe bet right now. He's had back-to-back good games and is obviously the most talented of the three. Anquan Boldin and Johnson, though, have been as predictable. Boldin had eight catches for 99 yards in Week 1, and Johnson obviously did what he did in Week 3. Incidentally, neither had a big game in Week 2, when quarterback Colin Kaepernick did a fine job spreading the ball to tight ends Derek Carrier and Vernon Davis as well.

Maybe the answer is that the 49ers offense isn't built to sustain even two wide receivers. That's kind of the way I'm leaning right now. In deeper leagues, I'd prefer Boldin just because he plays so many of the team's snaps -- more than Crabtree, even -- but I'm not looking for either him or Johnson on the waiver wire right now.


Michael Crabtree totals career-high 10 catches in loss


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree totaled a career-best 10 catches during a 23-14 loss Week 3 at Arizona. His previous career best was nine catches, which was a feat he accomplished three times.

Crabtree, who was targeted 11 times, finished with 80 receiving yards and one touchdown. His second touchdown of the season came on the opening drive, when he hauled in a 2-yard touchdown catch from Colin Kaepernick. His longest catch went 20 yards.

Crabtree has managed at least 80 yards and one touchdown in back-to-back games. The 49ers return to action Week 4 vs. Philadelphia.


Week 3 bust alert: Michael Crabtree


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/18/2014) It's matchups like this weekend with Michael Crabtree vs. Patrick Peterson that are fun to watch, and Crabtree has done well against the Cardinals in his career.

In his past five meetings with Arizona, Crabtree has 30 catches for 456 yards and four touchdowns, and Peterson was just beaten for a touchdown in Week 2 by Rueben Randle.

Crabtree is also coming off a solid game in Week 2 against the Bears with seven catches for 81 yards and a touchdown on nine targets.

I'm not suggesting benching Crabtree outright in the majority of leagues because he could easily help your Fantasy team with one play. But the matchup with Peterson is tough, and we like Crabtree as just a No. 3 Fantasy receiver in the majority of leagues.

For a complete list of Week 3 options, read my latest Start 'Em and Sit 'Em.


Michael Crabtree dominates 49ers' passing game


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/15/2014) Michael Crabtree was 49ers' quarterback Colin Kaepernick's clear No. 1 target in the Week 2 loss vs. the Bears. Crabtree drew a game-high nine targets, three more than any other San Fran wideout, and caught seven passes for 82 yards and a touchdown.

Crabtree found himself wide open for a 3-yard score in the first quarter and made other big plays, like converting 4th-and-6 with a 9-yard reception on his team's final drive. But on 4th-and-9 at the Bears' 17 with 1:17 left, Crabtree juggled and dropped a pass in the end zone.

He'll visit Arizona in Week 3.


49ers OC: Michael Crabtree 'looks 100 percent'

Michael Crabtree practices in full Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/10/2014) San Francisco wide receiver Michael Crabtree was able to practice in full Wednesday.

Michael Crabtree responds with two catches


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) San Francisco wide receiver Michael Crabtree caught two balls Sunday against the Cowboys.

Crabtree entered the game questionable due to a calf injury. He gutted it out, but wasn't involved much in the team's win. Crabtree drew a pass interference call in the first quarter, but didn't make his first catch until the second. He caught his second ball on the same drive, and was quiet the rest of the contest.

Crabtree's struggles may have been a result of the 49ers going up by 25 relatively early. The team didn't rely much on the passing game in the second half.

Crabtree will look for more Week 2 against the Bears.
