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. Oct 23 - 6:57 PM

Michael Crabtree caught just 2-of-4 targets for 10 yards in the Raiders' Week 6 loss to the Chiefs.

Crabtree ran a bunch of his routes at Pro Bowl CB Marcus Peters, but the Raiders' offense never got much going outside of Amari Cooper (10-129). They ran just 53 plays as a team. Crabtree will look to rebound next week at the Jaguars.
Oct 16 - 8:07 PM

Michael Crabtree caught 3-of-7 targets for 47 yards and one touchdown in the Raiders' Week 5 win over the Chargers.

Crabtree could have had a much bigger day, but he had a potential nine-yard touchdown hit him in the face mask in the end zone. It didn't appear he was expecting the ball to come his way. He also later committed a bad drop on 3rd-and-7. Crabtree more than made up for it, though, with a sensational 21-yard touchdown grab on 4th-and-2 late in the third quarter with the Raiders down 24-19. It sparked the comeback win. Crabtree now has five touchdowns through five games and has quickly become Derek Carr's go-to guy in clutch situations. He'll be a solid WR2/3 next week at home against the Chiefs.
Oct 9 - 8:29 PM

Michael Crabtree caught 7-of-12 targets for 88 yards and three touchdowns in the Raiders' Week 4 upset of the Ravens.

Crabtree torched Ravens LCB Shareece Wright repeatedly for scores and continues to be Derek Carr's preferred target in scoring position. Crabtree is up to four TDs on the season and also has a two-point conversion with target totals of 9, 5, 11, and 12 through four games. Crabtree was an every-week WR2 last year and will remain an every-week WR2 ahead of a Week 5 date with the Chargers. Amari Cooper figures to draw Jason Verrett in that game.
Oct 2 - 4:31 PM

Michael Crabtree caught 8-of-11 targets for 102 yards in the Raiders' Week 3 win over the Titans.

The 11 targets were two more than Amari Cooper to lead the team. Crabtree posted a meager 4-18 line in the first half, but became Derek Carr's go-to guy after the break and methodically torched the Titans with several nifty grabs. His long catch of 31 yards came on a play Carr avoided three rushers and heaved a ball to midfield where Crabtree leaped up to nab it, losing his helmet at the same time. He had another big catch on third-and-long in the fourth quarter, tapping his toes at the sideline. Crabtree is as reliable a WR3 there is heading into Week 4 at Baltimore.
Sep 25 - 4:17 PM

Michael Crabtree caught 4-of-5 targets for 31 yards and a touchdown in the Raiders' Week 2 loss to the Falcons.

Crabtree's yardage total was a bit disappointing on a day where Derek Carr threw for 299 yards and three touchdowns, but fantasy owners can always hang their hats on Crabtree's red-zone usage. Carr proactively looked for Crabtree in scoring position all last season and is doing it again this year, hitting him for the game-winning two-point conversion in Week 1 at New Orleans and for a short score in Sunday's loss. Crabtree will be a solid WR2/3 play in Week 3 at Tennessee.
Sep 18 - 8:46 PM

Michael Crabtree caught 7-of-9 targets for 87 yards in the Raiders' Week 1 win over the Saints, also catching the game-winning two-point conversion.

Crabtree was grinding out yardage all day, making tough catches in contested areas. He was the sure pair of hands the Raiders want and need him to be opposite developing No. 1 wideout Amari Cooper. His two-pointer was a dominant 1-on-1 win in the end zone. Crabtree will be a high-end WR3 against the Falcons in Week 2.
Sep 11 - 5:31 PM

Michael Crabtree caught 1-of-4 targets for 41 yards in the Raiders' third preseason game Saturday night.

Crabtree only managed one catch, but he made the most of it. The veteran got a step down the right sideline on the first drive of the game, and Derek Carr hit him in stride for a 41-yard gain. Crabtree will likely take on a smaller role this season as Amari Cooper develops, but he still could return WR3 value in what should be an explosive offense.
Aug 27 - 10:11 PM

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.
Sun, Dec 13, 2015 08:34:00 PM

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.
Wed, Dec 9, 2015 07:15:00 PM

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.
