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.

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.
Nov 1 - 7:25 PM

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.
Oct 17 - 7:36 PM

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.
Oct 11 - 8:29 PM

Michael Crabtree (ankle) is probable for Week 5 against the Broncos.

He missed Wednesday's practice with an ankle injury but returned the following day. Crabtree has enjoyed a renaissance year. Right now, he's on pace for his first 1,000-yard season since 2012.
Oct 9 - 3:46 PM

Michael Crabtree (ankle) returned to Raiders practice Thursday.

Crabtree will be fine for Sunday's tough matchup with the Broncos. Crabtree is a low-end WR3 for Week 5.
Oct 8 - 5:02 PM

Michael Crabtree (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

Crabtree managed to play through his ankle injury last week, catching 5-of-6 targets for 80 yards. It sounds like he escaped with just a bad scare. More will be known on Crabtree's status when Oakland returns to practice Thursday.
Oct 7 - 7:38 PM

Michael Crabtree caught 5-of-6 targets for 80 yards Week 4 against the Bears.

Crabtree missed most of the second quarter after suffering a gruesome-looking ankle injury blocking on a screen pass. He returned in the second half, however, and ended up making several big plays down the stretch. After four games, Crabtree is on pace for 92 catches for 1,056 yards and four touchdowns.
Oct 4 - 6:27 PM

Michael Crabtree (ankle) returned to Week 4 against the Bears.

Crabtree had his right leg rolled up from behind blocking on a screen play in the second quarter. He sat out the rest of the first half but returned after halftime.
Oct 4 - 2:56 PM

Michael Crabtree exited Week 4 against the Bears with an ankle injury.

Crabtree had his right leg rolled up from behind blocking on a screen play in the second quarter. He looked to be in a lot of pain immediately after the play, but he was spotted trying to walk the injury off on the sideline. He ended up walking into the locker room and is questionable to return.
Oct 4 - 1:58 PM

Michael Crabtree secured 4-of-9 targets for 36 yards in the Raiders' Week 3 win over the Browns.

Crabtree was quiet aside from being whistled for multiple offensive pass interference penalties. Crabtree has been an inconsistent performer in the early going, turning in yardage totals of 37 in Week 1, 111 in Week 2, and 36 in Week 3. Even against the leaky Bears secondary in Week 4, Crabtree will merely be a low-end WR3 fantasy play behind Amari Cooper in the pecking order.
Sep 27 - 5:17 PM

Michael Crabtree secured 9-of-16 targets for 111 yards and a touchdown in the Raiders' Week 2 win over the Ravens.

After a slow preseason and Week 1, Crabtree more than showed signs of life in this one, racking up yards after catch in the first half. The return of Derek Carr was good news for all of Oakland's pass catchers. On a third-quarter play-action pass, Carr hit Crabtree for a 37-yard touchdown to give the Raiders a 30-20 lead. Still behind Amari Cooper in the pecking order, Crabtree will be a fringe WR3 option against Cleveland's stout pass defense in Week 3.
