San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree said he did not feel like himself when he returned from offseason Achilles' tendon surgery last season. "I was fast enough to be on the field," Crabtree said. "But I wasn't me." Crabtree looked like a No. 1 receiver this offseason before he suffered a hamstring injury.
FANTASY TIP: Crabtree is working his way back from the hamstring injury and should be ready for the start of the season. Crabtree probably will be a starter or weekly flex option in most fantasy leagues.
