Huddle Up: Even if Anquan Boldin returns he's at an advanced age for an NFL wideout, so the Niners need to lock up Crabtree to give Colin Kaepernick a solid downfield target. Makes sense to try to price him now after an injury shortened season rather than let him put up gaudy numbers and drive his price tag up heading into free agency.

Huddle Up: Crabtree has looked better in each of his 4 outings and is coming off his first 100-yard receiving game of the season in Week 16. His presence has boosted Colin Kaepernick's fantasy passing stock as well.

Huddle Up: Crabtree, playing his fourth game since returning from a torn Achilles', continues to look better each time out, and the only thing that was missing was a TD catch -- which went to fellow wideout Anquan Boldin (6-72).

Huddle Up: Crabtree's reception total has increased in each of the 3 games he's played since his Week 13 return. He also on Sunday became the first 49er pass-catcher other than TE Vernon Davis and Anquan Boldin to record a TD catch.

Huddle Up: Crabtree is likely to start on Sunday but he could see a lot of Darrelle Revis. Crabtree is no longer on a snap count but shouldn't be trusted as anything more than a WR4/flex play this week.

Huddle Up: Crabtree debuted with 2 catches for 68 yards on 4 targets in Week 13, and look for the Niners to get him more involved as they ramp up their playoff push.

Huddle Up: He looked great in his return. Barring any setbacks, put him in your lineups forthwith.

Huddle Up: Crabtree will likely be on a snap count, so fantasy owners would be wise to wait at least a week before inserting him into their lineups.

Huddle Up: Crabtree is expected to make his season debut on Sunday against St. Louis. Just like with Percy Harvin, Crabtree's snaps will be monitored. Fantasy owners should keep Crabtree on the bench this week and wait until fantasy playoffs to use him.

Huddle Up: This move means Crabtree is one step closer to returning to the field, and to fantasy lineups.

Huddle Up: Crabtree has conquered the tough part -- i.e. rehabbing and getting back on the active roster -- but it still remains to be seen how quickly the WR will be worked into a heavy rotation. Crabtree's path could mirror that of NFC West-rival Percy Harvin and the Seahawks, meaning he'll be brought along slowly as the Niners ramp up for the postseason.

Huddle Up: Great news for those who have held on to the Niners' WR all season and more good news for Colin Kaepernick owners, who on Monday night saw the QB have his best fantasy game (235 yards, 3 TDs) since the season opener.

Huddle Up: That game is tonight, not this coming Sunday, so we might see Crabtree in Week 13. Keep an eye on him.

Huddle Up: If you've been stashing Crabtree, looks like you won't get anything out of him until the fantasy playoffs at the earliest.
Posted: 11/21/2013 6:06pm ET
Huddle Up: Even after he's activated, it doesn't mean that Crabtree will play -- let alone take on a large workload -- right away so proceed with a good backup plan if you're counting on him for Week 13 or your fantasy playoffs.

Huddle Up: Crabtree almost certainly won't play this week. The best case scenario for fantasy owners is he returns in Week 13 or 14, where Crabtree would help out during the playoffs.
Posted: 11/11/2013 8:11pm ET
Huddle Up: With Percy Harvin now activated, the focus shifts to the other big-name NFC West WR on the comeback trail. Crabtree's return, though, is likely still a few weeks away.
Posted: 11/6/2013 11:09pm ET
Huddle Up: Crabtree isn't expected back this month. If fantasy owners are holding onto Crabtree, a best-case scenario would probably be he helps out during fantasy playoffs. The 49ers aren't going to rush him back because they want him to contribute for a run in the postseason.
Posted: 11/5/2013 8:30pm ET
Huddle Up: Those who have held on to Crabtree will be rewarded soon as the WR is right on schedule for a second-half return.
Posted: 10/7/2013 4:32pm ET
Huddle Up: If you happen to have him stashed on your roster, this is excellent news. If not and he is available, try to gauge when you should pick him up. If you can afford to, the sooner the better.
