Sans Vernon Davis, should be clear go-to option for Kaepernick - ARI a tough matchup, but Crabs has had good history vs. -- FF = 5/70/1
Avg just 30 YPG in 1st 2 w/ S. Smith getting all the love over the middle. But Smith avg. over 80 YPG in 2 meetings w/ J. Haden and co. in '13, and CLE 5 pass plays of 20+ yds allowed (3rd most) - FF = season-high 4/60

Crabtree looked much better in Week 2, he is a low WR2 to high WR3 if the 49ers keep him involved in the offense.
Smith is a big play receiver that will be tested going against Cleveland CB Joe Haden.
