The San Francisco 49ers have announced that WR Michael Crabtree will make his much anticipated debut this afternoon against the St. Louis Rams. Crabtree has been recovering from an Achilles injury. The receiver was expected to be a focal point of the Niners offense this season after coming off a career season in 2012.
Fantasy owners with Crabtree on their rosters should avoid playing Crabtree this afternoon. Expect him to be limited in the number of snaps he plays this afternoon as he works back into football shape. There is also the chance that Crabtree has no real fantasy impact this season as the Niners work him back into football shape as they get ready for the playoffs.
