Michael Crabtree Fantasy Stats: San Francisco 49ers WR Produces 120 Receiving Yards

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree didn't grab either of Alex Smith's two touchdown passes in the team's wins over the Arizona Cardinals, but he did lead all receivers with seven catches for 120 yards. This was his best game of the season, though fantasy owners would prefer he also catch a few touchdown passes. He has just one on the season.

Crabtree has been hit-or-miss as a fantasy option this season. He was shut down against the New York Giants last week, though he had been coming off a streak of three-straight games of at least five receptions. Still, with just one touchdown on the year there may be better options available.

Crabtree was averaging just under 11 yards per reception on the season, making him better-suited for PPR leagues. He came in 30th in Yahoo! Sports' wide receiver standard league rankings for Week 11. At best, he should be considered as a flex option in most cases.
