Michael Crabtree caught both of his targets for 17 yards in the Raiders' Week 17 loss to the Chargers.
Crabtree spent most if not all of the fourth quarter on the sidelines, and the Raiders told inquiring reporters the benching had nothing to do with an injury. It is an ominous sign after a Sunday-morning report from the Las Vegas Review-Journal said the Raiders plan to move on from Crabtree this offseason in part because of locker room issues. Crabtree also took a step back on the field this year, catching just 58 passes for 618 yards and fading badly down the stretch. He did find the end zone eight times, however, and will be a coveted asset if he hits the open market. Sun, Dec 31, 2017 07:23:00 PM

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports the Raiders are expected to move on from Michael Crabtree this offseason.

Crabtree has reportedly been clashing with the Raiders behind the scenes. His play has also dropped off after a strong start, getting held under 60 yards in six straight games. Releasing Crabtree would save Oakland $7.7 million with no dead money, so there's cap-based incentive to cut ties. Crabtree is still one of the top possesion receivers in the league and won't struggle for free-agent offers.

Coach Jack Del Rio said Michael Crabtree injured his hamstring Week 16 against the Eagles.

After seeing 30 targets combined Weeks 14 and 15, Crabtree laid a complete egg on Christmas night, posting a 0-0 line on three targets and torpedoing many fantasy lineups in championship week. It's unclear whether Crabtree will play in the Raiders' meaningless finale against the Chargers.

Michael Crabtree failed to catch any of his three targets in the Raiders' 19-10, Week 16 loss to the Eagles on Christmas night.

After seeing 30 combined targets the previous two games, Crabtree laid a total egg in fantasy championship week. Amari Cooper returned from his ankle injury and caught three balls for 66 yards, including a 63-yard touchdown. Outside of that score, Derek Carr threw for just 90 yards, and most of the blame goes on the quarterback for Crabtree's down night. Crabtree will do battle with CBs Casey Hayward and Trevor Williams in the Week 17 finale versus the Chargers.

Michael Crabtree caught 7-of-17 passes for 39 yards and two touchdowns in Week 15 against Dallas.

Crabtree was targeted heavily with Amari Cooper out. He got most of his catches on check downs, though he drew a deep pass interference call late that put Oakland in position to win. Both of Crabtree's touchdowns were goal-line passes from Derek Carr. With Cooper not a lock to return next week, Crabtree is a WR1 for a matchup with the Eagles.

Michael Crabtree caught 7-of-13 targets for 60 yards and a two-point conversion in the Raiders' Week 14 loss to the Chiefs.

Derek Carr was brutally ineffective all game, but Crabtree's sheer volume allowed him to finish with a relatively productive box score. As Amari Cooper aggravated his ankle injury and didn't return, Crabtree should remain a volume monster when the Raiders host a leaky Cowboys pass defense in Week 15.

Raiders activated WR Michael Crabtree from the reserve/suspended list.

He'll be all systems go for Week 14 against the Chiefs. As Amari Cooper (ankle, concussion) is a legitimate question mark to return, Crabtree could have the Raiders' wideout position essentially all to himself in a plus matchup.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Michael Crabtree's suspension for unsportsmanlike conduct and unnecessary roughness violations has been reduced from two games to one.

This stems from his fight with Aqib Talib. Crabtree will now be eligible to return against the Chiefs in Week 14. It's good news for the Raiders, though they'll still be shorthanded Sunday versus the Giants with Crabtree out and Amari Cooper in the concussion protocol.

NFL suspended Raiders WR Michael Crabtree two games for violations of unsportsmanlike conduct and unnecessary roughness rules Week 12 against the Broncos.

It seems incredibly harsh, especially after A.J. Green and Jalen Ramsey didn't even get suspensions for their on-field pummeling of each other a couple weeks back. Of course, this isn't the first time Crabtree and CB Aqib Talib got into a skirmish revolving around Talib yanking Crabtree's chain off his neck. We'd bet both players appeal their bans with a good chance it's knocked to one game.

Michael Crabtree was ejected from Sunday's Week 12 game against Broncos.

Crabtree was kicked out for fighting CB Aqib Talib. He's now subject to a suspension, though the league didn't suspend A.J. Green after a similar incident. Raiders RG Gabe Jackson was also ejected.

Michael Crabtree hauled in 6-of-11 targets for 51 yards in the Raiders' Week 11 loss to the Patriots.

Like his quarterback, Crabtree did not stand out as having a particularly poor day, but he simply could not get anything going along with the rest of the passing attack. He did have a chance at a big play in a one-on-one situation down the field, but he could not come up with the catch. Crabtree has yet to top 85 yards this season, and he has not found the end zone since Week 7. It is unlikely either of those trends change next week against Denver.
Sun, Nov 19, 2017 07:55:00 PM

Michael Crabtree caught 3-of-4 targets for 40 yards in Week 9 against Miami.

It was a down game for Crabtree, who also had a drop. He has just one touchdown and has been held under 40 yards in two of his last three games. Crabtree will take a 36/441/6 line into a Week 10 bye.
Mon, Nov 6, 2017 12:15:00 AM

Michael Crabtree caught 5-of-10 targets for 83 yards in the Raiders' Week 8 loss to the Bills.

Crabtree was hot early with 72 yards on three first-half catches, including a 40-yard bomb against Shareece Wright. The Bills clamped down from there, bottling up both Crabtree and Amari Cooper (5/48/0). Crabtree will remain a quality WR2 play when the Raiders face a weaker Dolphins secondary next.

Michael Crabtree caught 3-of-7 targets for 24 yards and a touchdown in the Raiders' Week 7 win over the Chiefs.

Crabtree caught the game-winning touchdown, but not before committing offensive pass interference on another would-be game winner. It was that kind of night in Oakland, as the Raiders and Chiefs treated fans to a thrilling, sometimes incomprehensible, game. Crabtree is now up to six 2017 touchdowns, and has scored in 4-of-6 appearances. He gets the Bills for Week 8.

Michael Crabtree tallied six catches for 52 yards and a touchdown on 10 targets Sunday in the Raiders’ Week 6 loss to the Chargers.

This wasn’t a big yardage game for Crabtree, or really any Raider as Derek Carr opted for more of a dink-and-dunk approach while battling through a painful back injury. But Crabtree still did Crabtree things with his biggest highlight coming on a 23-yard touchdown grab midway through the first quarter. Crabtree beat Trevor Williams on an out route and did a nice job of staying in bounds as he tiptoed down the right sideline. He was the intended target on Carr’s first interception of the day and shoulders some of the blame for not being on the same page as his quarterback. Sunday continued Crabtree’s recent annihilation of the Chargers, who he’s now scored against in five straight games. He’ll be safe to fire up as WR2 Thursday versus the division-leading Chiefs.
