49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree came out strong for San Francisco in Week 1 vs. the Green Bay Packers. He looked to be a favorite of quarterback Alex Smith, leading the Niners in receptions with seven. His half-a-dozen catches went for 76 yards, but No. 15 was kept out of the end zone.
Fantasy Analysis: Crabtree appears to be the leading receiver in this 49ers offense. Despite the additions of Mario Manningham, Randy Moss and A.J. Jenkins, Crabtree was the guy in this offense. He was the most targeted and made the most grabs. In PPR leagues, Crabtree could have much higher value. He was a reliable target of Alex Smith's and if Week 1 was any indication, Smith will be looking his way often.
