From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 15): Even though it was to his detriment at times, Colin Kaepernick fed Crabtree like a #1 receiver after giving Anquan Boldin that treatment last week at Dallas. Crabtree might have been slowed a bit by injuries. He is likely to draw Patrick Peterson next week at Arizona.

Week 3: at Arizona Cardinals

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Colin Kaepernick has thrown 37/57 for 449 yards, three TDs and three interceptions to date, with 14/77/0 rushing so far. Last week, he tossed 21/34 for 248 yards passing, with one TD and three interceptions thrown, while taking four sacks for -16 yards. The turnovers killed the 49ers' chances to win the football game. Michael Crabtree finally looked like a #1 wideout with nine targets for 7/82/1 receiving during the game, which marginalized Vernon Davis (three for 3/39/0) and Anquan Boldin (six for 2/34/0) in terms of production - Davis was also hampered by an ankle injury that knocked him out of the game and led to him leaving the stadium on crutches. He had an MRI on September 15 - stay tuned to Footballguys.com's Players in the News later in the week to see if Davis can practice (or not) before inserting him in a lineup this week, folks. Arizona was tied for 14th in the NFL last season averaging 233 passing yards allowed per game, with 20 interceptions (tied for fifth) and 47 sacks (tied for sixth) over 16 games. This is a hard-nose, ball-hawking unit, friends. Philip Rivers managed 21/36 for 238 yards passing, one TD and one interception at Arizona on Monday Night Football's nightcap game during Week 1. Eli Manning managed 26/39 for 260 net passing yards, two TDs and two interceptions thrown, with two sacks taken for -17 yards during Week 2. They average 249 net passing yards allowed per game to date this year, in the bottom third of the league (22nd), through two contests. Kaepernick may have to do without Davis this week, but he's still got a nice passing matchup here - advantage, San Francisco.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 1 vs DAL (4 / 2 / 25 / 0 rec)

Crabtree only had two catches in the game and neither was particularly difficult. His first came wide open on a short slant for an easy first down. The second was a 21 yard gain on 3rd and 30 where the Cowboys all but gave him the first 15 yards.

2014 Week 2 vs CHI (9 / 7 / 82 / 1 rec)

Crabtree was the go-to guy in Week 2, leading the team in receptions, yards, and scoring the only receiving touchdown. He showed great body control on pass a little behind him on his 3 yard touchdown. He was wide open in the flats, but still had to adjust to the ball quickly to haul it in. Crabtree broke two tackles on a short hitch later in the game and turned it into a 20 yard gain. Crabtree found himself open underneath the safeties more than once and was easily Kaepernick's favorite target. The final pass of the game went off his fingertips in the end zone on 4th down.
