49ers WR Michael Crabtree: I wasn't me last season

49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree @KingCrab15 played in five games last season, but that wasn't really Michael Crabtree. The sixth-year wideout said it himself last week: "I was fast enough to be on the field. But I wasn't me."
This is understandable, of course, as Crabtree was coming back from a torn Achilles tendon suffered in the spring. He is fully healthy now, and quarterback Colin Kaepernick @Kaepernick7 has noticed an improved Crabtree on the field.

Fantasy Analysis:

There are two ways to look at Crabtree's fantasy stock.
He is a value pick in the fifth round as the No. 1 receiver in an offense with a good quarterback, plenty of options around him to keep defenses honest and a desire to throw more often this season. And he was so good in 2012.
OR ...
Crabtree is being overdrafted since there are too many mouths to feed in the Niners' passing game, and this is still a run-centric offense. And outside of an eight-week stretch in 2012, he hasn't lived up to expectations.
I think I lean toward the latter statement, but choose your own destiny.
