News out Niners camp today reveals that WR Michael Crabtree will be out anywhere from 1-2 weeks. Coach Harbaugh would not disclose what the injury was, but a source close to Crabtree tells NFL Insider Ian Rapoport that Crabtree is nursing a sore hamstring.

Fantasy Impact: The injury is certainly worth following as Crabtree missed all but the last couple weeks of the 2013 season, but showed flashes of brilliance upon return. He has had a strong training camp thus far, and could shine as a high upside WR2 if he stays healthy. As long as he is able to return to practice in a timely manner, Crabtree should still be considered a good value around rounds 4-6 in standard 10-12 team leagues and worth am earlier look in deeper formats.

Reports out of 49ers camp say WR Michael Crabtree has his natural burst back and is showing no signs of wear or injury. He is exploding on plays and participating at full force in practice. Crabtree underwent surgery for a torn Achillies in May of 2013 and did not return to the field until December. The Niners had used Crabtree sparingly in offseason workouts, but seem to have no major concerns about his health at this time. (Source: 49ers.com)

Fantasy Impact: Despite missing the entire offseason and a majority of the regular season, Crabtree returned in December to put up respectable fantasy numbers through the last few games of last season (284 yards and 1 TD through 5 games), as well as some flashes of brilliance in the postseason . If he continues to remain healthy through 2014, we expect numbers similar or better than his 2012 season (85/1,105/9), making him a mid WR2 value with high upside.

Crabtree is entering the final season of his rookie contract so we can expect big things. Crabtree and Kaepernick have a very solid connection. Back in 2012 when Kaepernick took over the starting job from a concussed Alex Smith, Crabtree burst onto the scene. He produced 85 receptions for 1,105 yards and 9 touchdowns in 2012 and is working to get back to those numbers again.
