Crabtree (knee) was a full practice participant Wednesday, the 49ers' official site reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Crabtree's receiving yards have decreased from the previous week in three of the last four games, a stretch in which he's gathered in 16 balls (on 21 targets) for 90 yards and no scores. With a pitiful 5.6 YPC during that span, he'll be hard-pressed to turn it around Sunday against a Cardinals secondary that has given up 13.0 YPC, but just one touchdown reception to wide receivers in the last seven contests.
Crabtree (knee) had one catch for five yards in Saturday's overtime loss to the Chargers.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Crabtree bumped up from no activity Wednesday, placing him on a path to active status Saturday versus the Chargers. While he has averaged only 9.9 YPC over the last five contests, San Diego's defense can be exploited, after giving up five touchdown catches to wide receivers in the past four games.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Crabtree's first three seasons were rather disappointing, but he came on strong in the second half of 2012, after Colin Kaepernick took the quarterback job from Alex Smith. While there's certainly risk here, the upside should justify a high draft pick. Including the playoffs, Crabtree finished with 90-plus receiving yards in six of his last eight contests in 2012.

2012

Considering he played in a run-first offense and for a defense-oriented team, Crabtree’s third season constituted progress. For starters, Crabtree caught 63 percent of the passes thrown his way (7th) and brought in three passes of 40-plus yards. His 7.7 YPT was below average, but still a career high as he and Alex Smith were more on the same page. Crabtree also hauled in 72 balls and led the team with 114 targets. At 6-1, 214, Crabtree’s got good size, plus ball skills, solid hands and good toughness. The 49ers put those skills to use in the red zone (17 targets), but only four of those were from inside the 10. Crabtree, who has battled a foot injury since his rookie year, has been a constant attendee at the team’s strength and conditioning program this offseason, and at press time claimed to feel healthier than at any point in his NFL career. That’s a good thing because the Niners brought in a lot of competition for targets in Randy Moss, Mario Manningham and first-round pick A.J. Jenkins.

2011

Crabtree essentially duplicated his mediocre 2009 per-play numbers – 7.3 YPT, 13.5 YPC – while adding a few more touchdowns in five more games. Those marks were fine for a rookie who missed training camp and the first six weeks of the year. They were less so for a top-10 overall pick with a year of experience under his belt. At 6-1, 214, with athleticism, ball skills, good hands and toughness, Crabtree has the tools to be an Anquan Boldin type, but something hasn't yet clicked. Crabtree missed his second straight preseason (this time due to a strained neck) and dropped seven balls during the year due to poor focus. That he had Alex and Troy Smith throwing him the ball didn't help, but that's not going to change this year with Alex Smith returning as the starter. Still, Crabtree's only played a little more than a year and a half and hasn't seen much training camp in either season. Gamble on the talent if he slips.

2010

For a rookie who missed all of training camp and five full games, Crabtree played about as well as one could expect — especially in a conservative offense. At 6-3, 215, and with excellent hands, good athleticism and the willingness to fight for the ball in traffic, Crabtree has everything you could want in a receiver except elite deep speed. He’s a good route runner, and is unusually polished for a young receiver — which explains how he was able to mesh in the 49ers offense despite missing his rookie camp. He’ll be the 49ers’ unquestioned top target on the outside this year, though Crabtree will likely yield some of the red-zone and goal-line looks to rising star tight end Vernon Davis, who tied for the NFL lead with 13 touchdown catches last year. One big key to Crabtree’s development, of course, will be quarterback Alex Smith. The former No. 1 overall pick showed good growth last year with 18 touchdowns and 12 picks in 11 games, and the team upgraded its offensive line significantly in the draft.

2009

The 10th overall pick in the 2009 draft, Crabtree possesses everything you’d want in a receiver except elite deep speed. That’s OK – the same could be said about Larry Fitzgerald. At 6-3, 215, Crabtree is a physical wideout, who has no trouble beating press coverage at the line of scrimmage or coming down with the ball in traffic. He’s got excellent hands, an outstanding vertical leap and adjusts well to the ball in the air. Given his size and athleticism, he should make an ideal option in the red zone. Crabtree, who underwent surgery on a fractured left foot in March, is expected to be close to full strength by late July. Barring a setback, he’ll compete with Josh Morgan for the starting split end job, opposite Isaac Bruce. Should he win the job (and it’s likely just a matter of time and health), he’s worth a look for his touchdown and play-making potential. Just keep in mind that under coach Mike Singletary and offensive coordinator Jimmy Raye, San Francisco is likely to employ a run-first offense.
