Michael Crabtree caught 7-of-11 targets for 74 yards and one touchdown in the Raiders' Week 13 win over the Bills.
Crabtree again led the Raiders in targets and production after an 8-110 line in Week 12. Crabtree could have had a bigger day, but committed a horrible drop in the end zone on a slant pass that hit him right in the chest with no defender on him. He later made up for it by snagging a three-yard score in the back of the end zone. Crabtree will be a WR2 Thursday night at the Chiefs. Dec 4 - 7:58 PM

Date:

Michael Crabtree (ankle) is active for Week 13 against the Bills.

Latavius Murray (ankle) is also active after both players were listed questionable. It's the same routine as last week. With Bills LCB Ronald Darby (concussion) out, Crabtree gets a boost against rookie CB Kevon Seymour.
Dec 4 - 2:42 PM

Michael Crabtree (ankle, questionable) will play Sunday in Week 13 against the Bills.

So will Latavius Murray (ankle, questionable). Crabtree hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 7 but recorded a season-high 110 yards in last week's win over Carolina. He'll be in the WR2 mix this week.
Dec 4 - 8:12 AM

Michael Crabtree (ankle) is questionable for Week 13 against the Bills.

Crabtree was limited at all three practices this week. Coming off a 100-yard game in Week 12, Crabtree should be a solid WR2 for Sunday's home game against Buffalo.
Dec 2 - 4:36 PM

Michael Crabtree (ankle) remained "limited" in Thursday's practice.

It's the same routine Crabtree went through last week. He avoided setbacks against the Panthers, and will be a high-end WR2 against the Bills.
Dec 1 - 7:26 PM

Michael Crabtree (ankle) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Crabtree was listed as questionable with an ankle injury last week but played his usual snaps Sunday against Carolina. He broke out of a slump by snagging eight catches for 110 yards in that game. Crabtree will be a borderline WR2 against Buffalo in Week 13.
Nov 30 - 7:12 PM

Michael Crabtree caught 8-of-13 targets for 110 yards in the Raiders' Week 12 win over the Panthers.

Crabtree didn't seem bothered at all by an ankle "injury" that left him questionable for this one. He led the team in targets and made a big 49-yard catch deep down the middle of the field in the second half. The Panthers laughably left fill-in MLB A.J. Klein in one-on-one coverage against Crabtree on the play. He was also called for DPI on the pass. Crabtree now has a pair of 100-yard games in the fast four. He's settled in as a solid, if not spectacular, WR2/3 ahead of a Week 13 home game against the Bills.
Nov 27 - 8:18 PM

Michael Crabtree (ankle) is active for Week 12 against the Panthers.

Latavius Murray (ankle) is also active. Both players were listed questionable. Crabtree was limited at practice this week coming off a drop-filled Week 11. This entire Raiders passing offense is in a good spot at home against a Panthers team battling injuries. Crabtree is safe to use in redraft as a WR3.
Nov 27 - 3:01 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Michael Crabtree (ankle, questionable) is expected to play Week 12 against the Panthers.

Crabtree was limited at practice this week, but he should be ready to go. Crabtree has caught just five-of-13 passes for 32 yards and no touchdowns over his last two games, but he will be in the WR2 discussion if he gets the green light.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Crabtree will draw a tough matchup with Carolina cornerback James Bradberry, who has an excellent 80.7 grade from Pro Football Focus this season. However, he remains quarterback Derek Carr’s favorite red zone target, and the Panthers have given up the eighth-most passing touchdowns (19) this season. Fortunately, Bradberry won’t shadow Crabtree; he should see Daryl Worley (58.7 PFF grade) and Cre’von LeBlanc (53.3) on about 46% of his routes. As a unit, Football Outsiders ranks Carolina 19th in pass DVOA. Crabtree is a fine tournament option in a matchup that has a 49-point game total.
Nov 27 - 8:33 AM

Michael Crabtree (ankle) is questionable for Week 12 against the Panthers.

Crabtree is dealing with an ankle injury, though he still played on 39-of-53 offensive snaps Monday against Houston. He's been limited at practice this week. Crabtree should be ready to roll on Sunday and can be safely penciled in as a WR3.
Nov 25 - 4:16 PM

Michael Crabtree (ankle) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

It's the first time Crabtree has been on the injury report this year. The limited practice suggests he's dealing with a low-grade sprain. Crabtree should be fine for Week 12.
Nov 23 - 7:20 PM

Michael Crabtree caught 3-of-7 targets for just five yards in the Raiders' Week 11 win over the Texans.

He dropped at least two passes and an argument could be made for three. Crabtree also struggled with his footing on the loose turf in Mexico City's Estadio Azteca. He fell down on two targets and should have had a 32-yard touchdown but was unable to control the ball all the way to the ground in the back of the end zone. Crabtree also drew a pair of defensive pass interference penalties, so his night wasn't all bad. Look for him to rebound next week against the Panthers.
Nov 22 - 12:37 AM

Michael Crabtree caught 2-of-6 targets for 27 yards in Week 9 against Denver.

Crabtree didn’t make his first catch until the fourth quarter. He finished behind only Amari Cooper in targets, but failed to convert any of his end-zone looks. Crabtree will take a 49/596/6 line into Oakland's bye.
Nov 7 - 12:51 AM

Michael Crabtree caught 8-of-16 targets for 108 yards in the Raiders' Week 8 win over the Bucs.

The yards and targets were both season highs. The eight-grab game was his third of 2016. The only thing missing was a touchdown, something Crabtree was inches away from having. One was called back because of OPI, another just wide in the end zone. Crabtree also lost a 42-yard reception thanks to holding by a penalty-happy Raiders offense. Amari Cooper has the ceiling in Oakland's receiver corps, but Crabtree has a floor to match almost anyone in football. That being said, he'll be a mid-range WR2 for a tough Week 9 matchup in the Broncos.
Oct 30 - 6:07 PM

Michael Crabtree caught 8-of-11 targets for 96 yards and a touchdown in Oakland's Week 7 win over Jacksonville.

Crabtree did all his damage and scored his only TD in the first half. He had just one catch for six yards the rest of the game. Crabtree was held to two catches last week, but benefitted from Jalen Ramsey locking down Amari Cooper. The touchdown was Crabtree's sixth through his first seven games. Crabtree will remain a WR2 against the Bucs in Week 8.
