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.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

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.

Michael Crabtree anticipates playing Week 1


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2014) 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree said he will play Sunday against the Cowboys after sitting out practice Wednesday due to a minor calf injury.

"I’m excited, man," Crabtree said Thursday, per the San Jose Mercury News. "I’m going back from selling popcorn and hot dogs in the stands at Cowboys games and being able to play them, that’s a big change. Anybody’s got to be excited for that. I can’t wait to go back home."


Michael Crabtree looking at a strong matchup Week 1


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2014) San Francisco wide receiver Michael Crabtree is looking to dominate Week 1 against the Cowboys.

Crabtree had a relatively quiet offseason, which is a good thing for him. In past years, Crabtree has dealt with both injuries and surgeries during the offseason. That wasn’t the case this year, and he enters the season healthier than he’s ever been. Crabtree did pop up on the injury report Wednesday with a calf issue, but is expected to play Week 1.

Fantasy owners better hope the calf isn’t as issue, as Crabtree has a fantastic matchup in his first game. The Cowboys were one of the worst defensive clubs last year. The team allowed 23.62 Fantasy points to opposing wide receivers. That figure ranked as the sixth-worst. On top of that, Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick is suspended for Week 1, which means Crabtree should have even more freedom while running routes. 

The calf injury is a bit problematic, and threatens to put a damper on an otherwise quiet offseason for Crabtree. Fantasy owners might want to monitor the team’s daily injury reports to see whether Crabtree is able to get in a full practice Thursday or Friday. If he practices in full, he’s a must-start option. If he remains limited, he’s still a strong start, but there’s a little more uncertainty with that situation.


Michael Crabtree misses practice with calf injury


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree did not practice Wednesday due to a calf injury, the team announced.

Michael Crabtree on last season: 'I wasn't me'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Crabtree is itching for this season to start. "It's going to be an exciting year," he said. "I can't wait to get out there."

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Michael Crabtree returns to practice Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

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

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 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.
