49ers will start WR Crabtree
Michael Crabtree, WR SF
News: In what is stunning news out of 49ers camp, the Santa Rosa Press-Democrat reports that the team will replace WR Josh Morgan with rookie Michael Crabtree in the starting lineup for their Week 7 game at Houston. Crabtree was initially slated to play on a limited basis as a slot receiver for the club. Head coach Mike Singletary said there was a "strong possibility" that Crabtree would start, and that was confirmed to the paper when Morgan said he had lost his starting role. "I'm helping him learn my position and take my position," said Morgan. "It is what it is. If he can help us win, I'm all right with that. They gave him my spot. So if he's going to be in there, I might as well help him out so I can make sure he gets it right."
Analysis: Crabtree is now worth owning in all leagues since he'll have a chance to make an immediate contribution to the Niners. Consider him a No. 3 WR in deeper leagues and a high-reward reserve in all other formats.
I picked him up in one fantasy league I'm in when he signed not playing him this early though.
You will be pissed if he has a monster game against Houston. I have him and wont start him either. So we will both be pissed
The worst kind of pissed the think your an idiot pissed off. Although it would mean great things for the 9ers.
