49ers | Michael Crabtree doing great

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (Achilles') is looking great in his recovery from surgery on his right Achilles', according to head coach Jim Harbaugh. The team isn't ruling out a return for Crabtree this season. "I wouldn't categorize it as 'ahead of schedule' because he is just starting to move on it," Harbaugh said. "It's just been healing but it looks great. That's from the words of the doctors, so, again, optimistic there."

Fantasy Tip: The initial reports bring optimism, but we won't have any idea of whether Crabtree can return this year until he's further along in the rehab process. There's still a good chance that he won't play at all in 2013.
