Michael Crabtree eclipses century mark for fantasy owners on MNF

Thearon W. Henderson

The 49ers continue to surge toward the season's end, and Michael Crabtree is a big reason for that. We break down the fantasy implications.

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree provided his strongest case for being back at full health on Monday night.

Crabtree routinely ripped off big chunks of yardage, running crisp routes and finding holes in the Atlanta Falcons secondary. His highlight of the night came from a 47-yard catch-and-run on a drive that eventually set up an Anquan Boldin touchdown. At the end of the evening, Crabtree finished with five catches for 102 yards, the first time he eclipsed that total in a regular season game since Dec. 30, 2012.

Fantasy Spin: Crabtree seems to have regained his form after missing most of the season due to an Achilles injury, and his fantasy owners will gladly take his highest yardage total to the bank this week. Owners who took a shot on him regaining form have been rewarded in the season's closing, as he keeps getting better with time.

For fantasy owners still playing in Week 17, Crabtree has a difficult matchup against Patrick Peterson looming, but remains a WR3 with upside.
