Despite the presence of shutdown cornerback Darrelle Revis in the secondary, wide receivers have fared well against Tampa Bay this season. They are averaging 160.5 receiving yards and 22.9 Fantasy points per week. Wide receivers have also totaled 16 touchdowns in 13 games.
The good news for Crabtree is that Revis might spend a good deal of the afternoon covering Anquan Boldin, which could free up some opportunities for him. But you are definitely taking a gamble by starting Crabtree in Fantasy by just playing the matchup.
It was encouraging to see him get eight targets last week against the Seahawks, but he posted just four catches for 40 yards. He's definitely not fully back to the receiver he was late last season during the 49ers' march to the Super Bowl.
Crabtree got off to a slow start as he was held to one reception in the first half. He bounced back with three catches in the second half and finished the game with four catches for 40 yards on eight targets in a 19-17 victory.
Crabtree has six receptions for 108 yards over his first two games back from injury. He'll look to remain productive in Week 15 at Tampa Bay.
Finally healthy and out of the injury report,
Crabtree was eased back into action after missing the first 11 games coming back from a torn Achilles. He played 42 snaps and caught two passes for 68 yards in Week 13 against the Rams. Crabtree has not fared well in the past against the Seahawks, as he totaled eight catches for 96 yards in two games last season. In fact, he has only racked up more than 65 receiving yards once in seven meetings.
Opposing wide receivers have scored 14.00 Fantasy points per game in CBSSports.com standard leagues this season. However, four wideouts have found the end zone over the previous four games against Seattle. Still, Crabtree may be too risky to depend on, especially for those in playoff situations. Consider him a low-end starting option in most formats.
He'll play the Seahawks on Sunday.
