Crabtree was the most targeted player on the team last season and it wasn't close. He had more than triple the targets of any other WR. He had 19 more targets than Vernon Davis with two less games started.
So, he was the teams #1 in receiving yards, catches, and targets.
He really turned it on in the second half of the season. He just choked in the playoffs.
Next season, who knows? Way too many unknowns at this point. If you put a gun to my head, though... I'd say he's the #1 target again.
Thats great that he was targeted the most last year. We all know we were severely deficient in the wr department (see playoffs).
Though we made him the #1 target on our roster last year, does not equate to him being a #1 wr in the NFL.
I asked for someone who thinks he's a #1 in the NFL to qualify that statement with something other than "a hope and a prayer" that he somehow develops: speed, quickness, seperation, comands a double team, is clutch or anything of the sort?
Haven't got a decent resonse yet.
