When a dangerous weapon returns to the lineup, his talent doesn't merely restart his own fantasy value, but those around him, as well. One case in point was the re-emergence of Michael Crabtree (Achilles'), who mustered 68 yards on two grabs and four looks Sunday.
With the San Francisco 49ers' complete registry of starters back, the offense should open up, forcing the defense to spread its attention over more sources. Note Anquan Boldin and his 13 targets, his most since Week 1. Vernon Davis should be even better now, too.
Though Colin Kaepernick only found the end zone once, he posted one of his most efficient passing days on the year. His full complement of receivers made him more comfortable.
Crabtree this year will serve more often as a decoy, someone enemy secondaries must remember exists, than a focal point. Still, he's an attractive postseason stash who should be moving much better by January.
The rival Seattle Seahawks, who've already punched their own playoff ticket, must be leaning toward saving their own intriguing but fragile weapon until their Super Bowl push. Percy Harvin's (hip) latest setback jeopardizes his opportunity to follow in Crabtree's footsteps for fantasy owners. This offense has been a much better machine than San Fran's, though, so he'd merely be a bonus.
