Michael Crabtree salvages fantasy performance with touchdown against Chicago

Thearon W. Henderson

Michael Crabtree saved his fantasy owners by catching a late touchdown against the Bears.

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree continued his string of productive games on Monday Night Football against the Chicago Bears.

Crabtree caught three balls for 31 yards on five targets but salvaged his fantasy performance with a touchdown against the Bears.

Fantasy Impact: Crabtree was playing with his backup quarterback, Colin Kaepernick, but that didn't stop him from making plays in the red zone.

Crabtree has been surprisingly effective this season, particularly when his team crosses the 20-yard line. Crabtree has developed into one of Alex Smith's favorite targets, so he is undoubtedly looking forward to Smith's return. Still, Kaepernick has not presented much of a drop-off for this passing attack so far.
