Michael Crabtree caught 6-of-6 targets for 80 yards and three touchdowns against the Jets in Week 2.
Unlike how he didn’t get red-zone targets in Week 1, he was heavily targeted when it counted against the smaller DBs. He beat 5’9" Buster Skrine for two yards on his first score, scored from 26 yards out on his second one, and Derek Carr hit him on a rollout for a one-yard TD. It’s worth a quick mention that Crabtree did need his ankle retaped in the first half, but it clearly didn’t affect his play. He just turned 30 on Thursday and he still has plenty of juice as a WR2.

Michael Crabtree caught 6-of-7 targets for 83 yards in the Raiders' Week 1 win over the Titans.

Unusually, none of Crabtree's looks came in the red zone. He ceded that territory to Amari Cooper, whom the Raiders seemed focused on getting going near the goal line after last year's dismal performance in the red zone. Otherwise, Crabtree did his thing, tacking on yards after the catch and proving difficult to take down with the ball in his hands. Even if Cooper is more involved in the painted area, Crabtree will remain an excellent weekly bet to score, especially in cupcake matchups like next week's hosting of the Jets.
Sep 10 - 4:58 PM

Michael Crabtree caught 2-of-3 targets for nine yards in the Raiders' third preseason game.

It was an Amari Cooper game, as the Raiders' third-year wideout scored a 48-yard touchdown while Crabtree took a backseat. Crabtree has scored 17 touchdowns to Cooper's 11 over the past two seasons, however, and Crabtree's red-zone prowess makes him a bankable value pick in the fifth and sixth rounds.
Aug 27 - 1:17 AM

Michael Crabtree caught 2-of-7 targets for 33 yards in the Raiders' Wild Card loss to the Texans.

Crabtree suffered a concussion in the fourth quarter and never came back into the game. He dropped another pass in this one on a critical 2nd-and-9 play in the first half. Crabtree led all receivers this season with 13 drops and the Raiders as a team dropped the most passes in the league. Crabtree still had a fine year, catching 91-of-149 targets for 1,036 yards and eight touchdowns, and was far more consistent on a weekly basis than teammate Amari Cooper. But the drops were a big drain on the offense at times. Crabtree has three years left on his contract and will be entering his age-30 season in 2017. He should still be a fine WR2 next year in a high-powered offense that has its arrow pointing up.

Michael Crabtree (finger) is questionable for Saturday's Wild Card game against the Texans.

Crabtree has drawn the questionable tag numerous times this season but has yet to miss a game. He struggled against Houston when he faced them in Week 11, finishing that game with a season-low five yards on three receptions. That makes Crabtree somewhat of a risky DFS play, though he still has a good chance to lead the team in targets.
Jan 6 - 4:15 PM

Michael Crabtree (finger) remained limited at Thursday's practice.

Crabtree rarely gets in full practices. His status for Saturday's Wild Card game against Houston has never been in doubt. Crabtree recorded a season-low five receiving yards when he faced the Texans in Week 11.
Jan 5 - 4:06 PM

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

Jan 4 - 7:14 PM

Michael Crabtree caught 5-of-8 targets for 47 yards Week 17 against the Broncos.

His 47 yards actually paced the team on a day where the offense could get nothing going against a swarming defense. Crabtree looked to be bothered by an ankle injury late in the game, but he still was able to do enough to surpass 1,000 yards for the first time since 2012. With an unsettled quarterback situation, things will not get much easier next week in Houston.
Jan 1 - 8:13 PM

Michael Crabtree (finger) is questionable for Week 17 against the Broncos.

He was limited at practice this week but should get the nod for Week 17. Crabtree is just 44 yards away from his second career 1,000-yard season. He should be in the WR2 mix this week, even with Matt McGloin getting the start at quarterback.
