This is not exactly a huge update and the team has been targeting late November since training camp. He hasn't suffered any setbacks since sustaining the injury in OTAs.
The 49ers passing offense has really hit the skids in the past few weeks. In Week 5 , the 49ers somehow managed 34 points with Colin Kaepernick only completing six of his 15 passes. What's more, he hasn't gone over 167 passing yards in any game since Week 1.
Kap and Crabtree were certainly on the same page last year and were one of the best QB-WR combos in the second half of the year and in the playoffs, so he could be a sight for sore eyes.
Fantasy impact: This is probably your cue to go and get Crabby. Of course, if you're sitting there with a 4-1 or 5-0 record, that makes it a little easier. Some teams under .500 might not have that luxury with the bye weeks coming up. Kaepernick owners are also hoping to get their man a nice jolt in value, too.
