49ers WR Michael Crabtree returns after injury


49ers WR Michael Crabtree returns after injury

49ers WR Michael Crabtree @KingCrab15 has returned to practice after experiencing soreness in his hamstring. He has missed about a week and a half after head coach John Harbaugh said Crabtree would miss about two weeks of practice, but wouldn't disclose the injury. There was a fear he may still not be recovered from his ACL tear last year, which caused him to miss 11 games. Crabtree should be ready to play in the 49ers second preseason game versus the Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Analysis:

Crabtree can be a bona fide WR1 or a bust candidate. He does have the talent to produce and is only 26 years old. His fourth-round ADP is a tad high, but he'll be 49ers first option in the passing game.

He tore his Achilles tendon.

His ADP and potential warrants a WR2 spot. He is also in a contract year on a team that looks poised to make a Superbowl run after revamping its woeful receiving talent after last season. This guy is going to want to get paid if you look back to the drama that ensued after he was initally selected by the 49ers in the draft. It also adds appeal to Colin Kaepernick as late round QB1 or possibly QB2 (if you snag one of the big 3) with some trade bait appeal.
