Michael Crabtree injury: Probable status a good sign for fantasy value

Ed Szczepanski-US PRESSWIRE

The former first round pick is likely to start against St. Louis in Week 10. We break down the fantasy implications.

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree (illness) is probable to start against the Rams in Week 10. It's unlikely that the illness would keep him out, but monitor his status on Sunday morning to be sure that it's not just a 24-hour flu.

Crabtree leads the 49ers with 440 yards receiving in eight games.

Fantasy Take: None of San Francisco's new weapons have made the slightest impact in fantasy and Crabtree still remains the most viable option. That's still not very viable and he could have a long day against Cortland Finnegan on Sunday.

He's a low-end flex play.
