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.

- Derek Lofland, Fantasy Football Maniax

Smith plays a Bengals D that was 10th against fantasy receivers. In 2 games against the Bengals last year, he had just 8 receptions for 73 yards and 1 touchdown. His big play ability keeps him as a WR3.

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

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

Smith's role expected to expand but I don't love the matchup.

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.
