With the NFL season right around the corner, ESPN has started to breakdown player rankings for fantasy football. A game that many NFL fans have come to love, it was the wide receivers that were closely dissected on “Fantasy Football Now.” And with Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson leading the wide receivers as he’s ranked No. 1, San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree comes in at No. 21.
Crabtree who is playing in a contract year, will be out to capitalize on the opportunity at hand, especially with the addition of new teammate WR Stevie Johnson who will likely garner a lot of attention in the slot.
With Crabtree set to display his skill set in a full 16-regular season schedule as he’s fully recovered from a torn Achilles, look for Crabtree to be the 49ers No. 1 receiver while finishing the 2014 season in breakout fashion.
