Pros: Crabtree is entering his first season with a training camp under his belt. Despite missing training camp, the preseason and the first five games of the regular season last year, Crabtree never had fewer than three receptions in a game after reporting. He has good size, the ability to make plays after the catch and the 49ers finally seem to have a capable passing attack.

Cons: Despite making 48 grabs, he only had two touchdowns. While the 49ers finally seem to be headed in the right direction with their passing game, it's tough to hang your hat on Alex D. Smith. The team also remains a run-first mentality. He missed so much time last year due to a contract squabble, he is still learning the ropes and will have growing pains.

Fantasy tip: People are buying into the hype with Crabtree this year, and he is being selected in the fourth round of fantasy football drafts. He has the talent to be a No. 1 fantasy receiver, but be sure to temper your expectations because neither he nor the 49ers' offense are ready to make him one yet.
