Michael Crabtree Fantasy News
49ers sign Anquan Boldin to two-year deal
Monday, March 3, 2014, 4:11pm
Boldin announced via Twitter that he is officially back with the team. The deal is a two-year extension, a source told CSNBayArea.com, and is worth $12 million, according to multiple reports.
This is a smart move for the 49ers. Early in the season, Boldin carried the passing game at times but he actually increased his production upon Michael Crabtree’s return. Boldin averaged 4.7-66-.45 without Crabtree and 5.7-83-.43 with Crabtree, so the potential is there for another top 20 season. Boldin finished #15 in both standard and PPR formats. Removing Week 1 (his huge game against the Packers), he was #19 and #20 in standard and PPR, respectively. The signing is probably bad news for Vernon Davis, whose targets dropped from 6.1 per game pre-Crabtree to 4.9 T/G after Crabtree's return.

MNF Injury Report - Tony Gonzalez QUESTIONABLE
Saturday, December 21, 2013, 6:09pm
WR Darius Johnson (ankle), S Zeke Motta (hand, neck)
S Thomas DeCoud (concussion)
TE Tony Gonzalez is again listed as questionable with his toe injury. He was limited in practice this week but is expected to play in what isn't a great matchup. For the 49ers, WR Michael Crabtree and RB Frank Gore are listed as probable. Gore was limited in practice Thursday and Friday but was a full go Saturday. Crabtree practiced fully all week.
Percy Harvin not expected to play in regular season
Wednesday, December 18, 2013, 10:43am
The Seahawks regard WR Percy Harvin as a long-term, year-to-year asset. While he hasn’t paid dividends yet, the Seahawks have been better than fine without him. If he can contribute in the postseason, it’ll be an added benefit.
With the Seahawks likely to handle their business at home in the postseason, the ultimate goal should be to have a full package of plays for Harvin ready to go for Super Bowl XLVIII, the next time they’ll have to leave CenturyLink Field after closing out the season with back-to-back home games against the Cardinals and Rams.
When it comes to players returning from long-term injuries, for every Michael Crabtree there's a Percy Harvin. It doesn't look like he will help owners this year, though his recent setback doesn't make it much of a surprise. Doug Baldwin will continue to be a Sneaky Start in his absence. He is the #22 WR since taking over as a starter after Sidney Rice's knee injury.
