|Not a lot could be expected after he missed the first 11 regular season games of the 2013 season. Still, Michael Crabtree stepped back onto the field and reminded all of us that he is still one of the most talented pass-catchers in the league. Crabtree caught only one touchdown pass in the regular season, but also had a 100-yard game and proved that, when healthy, he is Kaepernick's favorite target in the passing game. Crabtree is currently being drafted as a high-end WR2 in most formats but could easily finish as a top-10 player at his position even if he only slightly improves on the per-game averages he had after he returned a season ago. If we go back even further to get a deeper look at the connection between Crabtree and Kaepernick, we will see that in seven starts with Kaepernick at quarterback back in 2012, Crabtree had 41 catches for 595 yards and five touchdowns. If he stayed on that pace for an entire season, he would easily finish as a top-five player at his position. Another often unnoticed point about Crabtree is that this is a contract year for the young pass-catcher. Expect him to go all-out in an effort to get a big money deal in 2015.
| Crabtree to miss time with unspecified injury|
Hamstring strikes again?
By: Doug Orth | Fri Aug 1, 1:45 pm
|Wide receivers Michael Crabtree and Brandon Lloyd are expected to miss the next week or two because of injuries that are unspecified but believed to be leg related. "Maybe a week, maybe two weeks," Harbaugh said Friday of Crabtree's status, "and same with Brandon Lloyd." (San Jose Mercury News)|
FFToday's Take: Crabtree's injury is speculated to be of the hamstring variety. He has missed an extraordinary amount of training camp time during his career. Harbaugh did say that Crabtree's injury is not related to his previous foot and Achilles injuries.
