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.

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick said his foot sustained a bone chip on the forefoot and a ruptured capsule on the ball in Week 2 of last season. In the following four games, he averaged fewer than 16 rushing yards per contest. The Niners tried to reduce risk for him any way possible until he was at full strength. His production on the ground increased as he healed, and San Francisco allowed him to do designed runs in the postseason.
Fantasy Tip: In the article, Maiocco guesses that it was Kap's left foot that sustained the injury. The fact Kaepernick ran for 524 yards last year -- the second highest in a single season for a Niners QB -- said there's more in store as long as he's healthy. He's an excellent low-end QB1 pick with upside for more.

Fantasy Tip: While Johnson would still carry little fantasy value as the backup to Kaepernick, the real story here is how far Gabbert's value may have slid. When you can't even be a competent backup then alarm bills will ring.

The San Francisco 49ers will determine their backup quarterback by which candidate does not turn the ball over, according to head coach Jim Harbaugh. QBs Blaine Gabbert and McLeod Bethel-Thompson threw interceptions during the second preseason game, while QB Josh X. Johnson lost a fumble.
