Michael Crabtree absent in passing game in Week 4, fantasy dud

Ed Mulholland-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree was extremely quiet in Week 4. We break down the fantasy implications.

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree was a non-factor in the team's passing game on Sunday. In Week 4 against the Jets, the Niners put up 34 points, yet Crabtree only accumulated 2 catches for 15 yards and no scores. It was a great team win but a fairly disappointing statistical outing for the 49ers' No. 1 receiver, to say the least.

Fantasy Analysis: Crabtree is up and down in fantasy. He has a lot of upside as the team's No. 1 wide receiver; also when you factor in his chemistry with quarterback Alex Smith. But Crabtree is terribly inconsistent. He could be a great flex option in PPR leagues but he is really tough to depend on week-to-week as a starting receiver in your lineup. If you own him, play the match-ups with Crabtree because he won't always be in the team's game plan.
