Description: San Francisco wideout Michael Crabtree could miss up to two weeks with a hamstring injury, according to Josina Anderson.

Insight: Crabtree missed the Niners' first 11 games while rehabbing a torn Achilles tendon. He caught two of four targets for 68 yards. If the 49ers continue to increase Crabtree's snap count over the next games, Crabtree could be a viable fantasy playoff option.

Insight: Crabtree missed the Niners' first 11 games while rehabbing a torn Achilles tendon. His day would have been quiet had he not hauled in a 60-yard bomb. The 49ers likely will continue to increase Crabtree's snap count over the final four games.

Insight: Crabtree missed the Niners' first 11 games while rehabbing a torn Achilles tendon. Similar to Percy Harvin two weeks ago in Seattle, he's likely to be on a snap count. This week we have him at No. 49 in our TSN wide receiver rankings.

Description: Niners wideout Michael Crabtree (Achilles) is expected to be activated from the PUP list Tuesday and play against the St. Louis Rams on Sunday.
Insight: Crabtree has been practicing for several weeks and could be a flex option against the Rams' 22nd-ranked pass defense in Week 13. He'll likely ramp up his workload over the next few weeks and could be a major factor by Weeks 15 and 16.

11/25/2013 9:36:00 AM
Description: San Francisco receiver Michael Crabtree, still on the PUP list, should be activated by the Tuesday deadline, but obviously won't play in Week 12 and is questionable for Week 13.

Description: San Francisco head coach Jim Harbaugh finally acknowledged Saturday that injured 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree is unlikely to play this week against New Orleans. SOURCE: NBC's Pro Football Talk
Insight: Crabtree's torn Achilles seems to be healing nicely but coming back in Week 11 was always a bit of a stretch. A return next week versus Washington or the week after against St. Louis would be far more realistic.

Insight: If your fantasy league runs through Week 13 with the next three weeks for the playoffs, Crabtree could return at a key time. Someone in your league will make him a late-round selection and could reap the rewards in the playoff. Why not make that person you?
