Michael Crabtree caught 3-of-7 targets for 34 yards and a touchdown Week 17 against the Chiefs.
Crabtree had a nice sideline catch called back because of the NFL's ridiculous catch rules, but he made up for it by hauling in an arm punt for a touchdown in the fourth quarter. Crabtree finished his resurgent 2015 with 85 catches for 922 yards and nine scores. The catches and touchdowns matched his career highs, and the yardage total is the second-highest of his career. Crabtree slowed down significantly in the second half along with the rest of the offense, but the 28-year-old should be viewed as a solid WR3 heading into 2016. Jan 3 - 8:09 PM

Michael Crabtree caught 6-of-8 targets for 39 yards and a touchdown in the Raiders' Week 16 win over the Chargers.

Crabtree's score was a second half dime from Derek Carr, who lofted a perfectly placed three-yard fade to the back left corner of the end zone. Otherwise, Crabtree's second half of the season slump continued, as he averaged fewer than 10 yards per catch for the fifth time in his past six games. Crabtree has been making extremely few plays the past six weeks. He'll be a low-end WR3 against the Chiefs in Week 17.

Michael Crabtree caught 6-of-11 targets for 70 yards in the Raiders' Week 15 loss to the Packers.

Crabtree briefly left before halftime to be evaluated for a concussion, but he started the third quarter and otherwise looked healthy. He was unable to beat man coverage very often and was bottled up for minimal gains on his six grabs. Still, the targets continue to be promising for Crabtree. He'll be a high-volume WR3 next week in a plus matchup at home against San Diego.

Michael Crabtree exited Week 15 against the Packers to be evaluated for a concussion but passed protocol and returned to start the third quarter.

He went down in the second quarter, but the Raiders failed to announce anything until the break. With Seth Roberts (abdomen) also dinged up, the Raiders are left with Andre Holmes behind Amari Cooper. Before exiting, Crabtree reeled in 3-of-4 targets for 34 yards.

Michael Crabtree secured 4-of-5 targets for 19 yards in the Raiders' Week 14 win over the Broncos.

His lone missed target was a drop. Crabtree and Amari Cooper (0-0 on eight targets) both struggled mightily to create separation against the Broncos' stingy cornerback crew. Crabtree should find more room in Week 15 against the Packers, where Crabtree will be a low-end WR2 fantasy play.

Raiders signed WR Michael Crabtree to a four-year, $35 million contract extension.

The deal includes $19M guaranteed. Crabtree was one of free agency's biggest bargains after signing a one-year, $3 million "prove-it" deal in April. He's put together a renaissance season in OC Bill Musgrave's scheme, averaging 63.3 YPG and leading the Raiders in receptions (66), touchdowns (7), and targets (115). With Crabtree and Amari Cooper signed long term, Oakland has surrounded Derek Carr with a rock-solid wideout corps. Crabtree turned 28 in September and is now under the Raiders' control through his age-32 season.

Michael Crabtree caught 5-of-11 targets for 45 yards and one touchdown in the Raiders' Week 13 loss to the Chiefs.

Both Crabtree and Amari Cooper struggled to get much going against Kansas City outside CBs Sean Smith and rookie Marcus Peters. Crabtree also had a pair of drops on the day to go along with his 25-yard touchdown catch right before halftime when Derek Carr threw a bullet on a deep in route at the goal line. Crabtree will be a WR3 next week against the Broncos.

Michael Crabtree caught 4-of-8 targets for 19 yards and a touchdown in Oakland's Week 12 win over the Titans.

Crabtree ran a perfect route on his seven-yard score, putting himself in a position where only he could touch the ball in the front right corner of the end zone. The yards were by far his fewest of the season, but the touchdown was his sixth in six games. He'll remain a WR2 for next week's game against the Chiefs.

Michael Crabtree caught 6-of-11 targets for 50 yards in Oakland's Week 11 loss to the Lions.

There was a terrifying moment in the first half where Crabtree got his right knee bent in ridiculous fashion, but he was no worse for the wear after limping it off on the sideline. With the Raiders' offense surprisingly stuck in neutral, Crabtree had his quietest yardage effort in eight games. He'll bounce back as a high-floor WR2 against the Titans in Week 12.

Michael Crabtree nabbed four of five targets for 55 yards in the Raiders' Week 10 loss to the Vikings.

The five targets were his fewest of the season. Crabtree was held to one reception in the first half but came alive a little bit in garbage time. Derek Carr hit Crabtree in stride for a 22-yard catch in the fourth quarter, his longest gain of the day. Minnesota’s defense held their own today but we wouldn’t expect the Lions to put up much of a fight in Week 11. Crabtree, who still leads the Raiders in targets this year, will be a WR2 for that game.
Sun, Nov 15, 2015 08:01:00 PM

Michael Crabtree caught 7-of-12 targets for 108 yards and two touchdowns in Oakland's Week 9 loss to the Steelers.

The 7/100/1 effort was Crabtree's second straight. His first score was a leaping grab between two defenders in the end zone, while he was left completely uncovered on the second, a 38-yard strike late. Seemingly back to his pre-Achilles' injury form, Crabtree is on pace for 94/1,182/10 with half the season gone. Those numbers aren't far-fetched with Derek Carr balling out as he emerges as a franchise quarterback. Crabtree will be a WR2 against the Vikings in Week 10.

Michael Crabtree caught 7-of-12 targets for 102 yards and a touchdown Week 8 against the Jets.

With Darrelle Revis shadowing Amari Cooper, Crabtree did most of his work against an overmatched Antonio Cromartie. Crabtree walked through three tacklers on his touchdown in the first half, and the Jets secondary looked uninterested in tackling him or any other Raider all game. He topped off his day with a 16-yard catch-and-run which left Cromartie lying on the ground in pain in the fourth quarter. Crabtree now has at least eight targets in all but one game this season, and he will be a solid WR3 next week against Pittsburgh.

Michael Crabtree secured 6-of-8 targets for 63 yards and a touchdown in the Raiders' Week 7 win over the Chargers.

Crabtree shook off an early wide-open drop to turn in a strong day, racking up short gains against Chargers LCB Brandon Flowers. Crabtree's touchdown came on a bubble screen on the left side of the formation, making a few defenders miss en route to a 25-yard score. Seeing even more targets than Amari Cooper, Crabtree has solidly earned WR3 treatment in fantasy leagues. Unfortunately, he's going to see a lot of Darrelle Revis in Week 8.

Raiders OC Bill Musgrave wants to increase Michael Crabtree’s role.

"He’s been terrific. We just want to keep building his role in the offense," Musgrave said. Crabtree leads Oakland in targets (46) and has more catches than Amari Cooper. He’s been Derek Carr’s top option on third downs and in the second half of games. With Latavius Murray struggling, the Raiders are a good bet to remain pass-heavy going forward. Crabtree is PFF’s No. 7 receiver through five weeks.

Michael Crabtree caught 4-of-9 targets for 54 yards in the Raiders' Week 5 loss to the Broncos.

Crabtree paced Oakland in targets was lined up across Aqib Talib a lot of the afternoon and even got into some jaw-jacking matches with the shutdown corner. Crabtree lost more often than not and continues to need a ton of targets to rack up meaningful numbers. He'll be a low-end WR3 when the Raiders come out of their bye to take on the division-rival Chargers in Week 7.
