Summary

The tenth overall pick in the 2009 draft, Michael Crabtree is a big, athletic receiver who had improved each season he'd been in the league until he tore an Achilles tendon in last offseason's workouts. He missed the first 11 games of the season, and was eased back into the offense when he returned. Over his last five games, including the playoffs, he averaged 66.8 receiving yards per game, which is not far off his 2012 regular-season pace of 69 yards per game. Still, while Crabtree was a top-15 fantasy WR in 2012, there are reasons to doubt that he'll regain that status in 2014. Primarily, while Crabtree led the 49ers in targets by a huge amount in 2012, there will be more mouths to feed this season. Anquan Boldin had a terrific season last year, and he returns. Steve Johnson, acquired in a trade with the Bills, will also get playing time and eat into Crabtree's targets. Consider Crabtree a borderline fantasy WR2-WR3 heading into the 2014 season. (May 25)
