San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree is having his best game of the season. We break down the fantasy implications.
Michael Crabtree is having the best game of his career with plenty of time remaining as the San Francisco 49ers lead the Arizona Cardinals 17-6. Midway through the third quarter Crabree has already caught six passes for 151 yards and two touchdowns.
This is the first 150-yard game of Crabtree's career and puts him over 1,000 yards on the season (the first 1,000 yard season of his career). His two touchdowns give him nine on the season.
Fantasy Impact: If you are playing in Week 17, Crabtree is doing work for your team and picked the best possible week to explode. If your season ended in Week 16, sorry, better luck next year.
Either way Crabtree has emerged this season as a legitimate No. 1 receiver and should be a relatively high fantasy draft pick next year.
