Michael Crabtree: "Isn't a diva a female?"

The "diva" label has been attached to San Francisco 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree and he's not sure why.

"Isn't a diva a female?" Crabtree asked, per David White of the San Francisco Chronicle. "I don't know, I'm asking. I mean, come on, that makes no sense. A diva?"

Some of the things, as White points out, are the rumors of Crabtree acting like a diva during pre-draft visits, his five-game holdout as a rookie and sitting out pre-season games this year with a "mild neck sprain" and owning 1,000 pairs of shoes.

Of course, there was the well-publicized confrontation last week with Vernon Davis, who said he was "giving him a check, getting his head leveled and just getting on him about some things he did in the past."

But coach Mike Singletary, an anti-diva Hall-of-Fame ex-middle linebacker, says that Crabtree is the "furthest thing from" being a diva.

"I'm telling you, that ain't me," Crabtree said. "Not when it comes to my teammates and guys that see me every day. I'm just a regular guy like everyone else."

Only three teams allowed more fantasy points to opposing wide receivers in 2009 than the Seattle Seahawks, this week's match-up.

Crabtree, who had 48 receptions in 11 games last year, is my 11th-ranked fantasy wide receiver for Week 1.
