Crabtree is a great play this week against an overwhelmed Dallas secondary. The 49ers shaky offense is a big reason I do not have him in my Top 10.

Crabtree has a minor injury but if good to go is a nice play against a bad Cowboys defense.

Owners of Crabtree will need to verify his status for Sunday. He did not practice Wednesday due to a calf injury. When Crabtree is a full-go he is a difference maker but don't expect a full season of it.
