Raiders | Michael Crabtree adding leadership

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 18:32:48 -0700

Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree received recognition from QB Derek Carr Tuesday, June 30, for his presence in the locker room. "He's such a great teammate. I love the guy. I talk to him all the time. We're always talking about the game. We're always talking ball. We're always talking routes, concepts, and what we're going to do during the game, and hand signals, all those things. He is a football junkie. He's been a nice guy, a nice addition to our team," said Carr.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree fell off the face of the Earth last season, but he represents one of few Raiders' receiving threats with experience. While rookie Amari Cooper is the fantasy darling and the more talented receiver, Crabtree could be the better option in the early weeks of the season, until Cooper gets fully accustomed to the NFL.

Raiders | Michael Crabtree has chip on shoulder

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 16:30:59 -0700

Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree said he has a chip on his shoulder since he did not receive a lot of interest in free agency and believes he has a lot to prove in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree is coming off a season where he had 68 receptions, 698 yards and four touchdowns but was on the free-agent market for several weeks before joining the Raiders. Crabtree has a chance to start for the Raiders next season but is not worth more than a late-round pick in fantasy drafts.

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 22:08:56 -0700

Updating a previous report, the Oakland Raiders are giving free-agent WR Michael Crabtree (49ers) a one-year, $3 million deal with another $2 million in incentives, a source said Monday, April 13.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree might be in line for a starting job with a strong training camp and preseason, as he battles Rod Streater and Andre Holmes, among others. Crabtree certainly has the most skills, but he also has a lengthy injury history, too.

Free-agent WR Michael Crabtree (49ers) is expected to sign with the Oakland Raiders as early as Monday, April 13.

Ravens | BAL interested in Michael Crabtree

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 10:23:46 -0700

Free-agent WR Michael Crabtree (49ers) is receiving interest from the Baltimore Ravens, according to a source. The Ravens are one of three teams showing the most interest in Crabtree.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree has not received a ton of interest since free agency began but is starting to receive interest from teams. Crabtree probably would not be a starter if he signs with the Ravens but should have a solid role in the passing game. Crabtree likely will be a late-round pick in most drafts next season.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree likely is one of the top free agents left on the market, and it appears he could sign with a team in the near future.

Free-agent WR Michael Crabtree (49ers) is visiting the Oakland Raiders Monday, April 6.

Dolphins | Michael Crabtree too expensive for MIA

Sun, 05 Apr 2015 07:49:45 -0700

Free-agent WR Michael Crabtree (49ers) is looking for at least $4.5 million for next season, but the Miami Dolphins are only willing to offer around $3 million.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree may have to wait a little longer if his asking price does not come down in the near future. Crabtree probably will not be able to find a starting job but could be a solid contributor for a team's passing game. He could be an option in later rounds of drafts as depth as the position.

Fri, 03 Apr 2015 08:19:28 -0700

Free-agent WR Michael Crabtree (49ers) will visit the Oakland Raiders next week, according to a source.

Jaguars | JAX not interested in Michael Crabtree

Mon, 30 Mar 2015 20:19:32 -0700

The Jacksonville Jaguars have never had an interest in free-agent WR Michael Crabtree (49ers).

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree is likely to find a job somewhere despite his injury history, but it sounds like Jacksonville has little interest in adding players with long injury histories or older players at the tail end of their careers.

Vikings | Michael Crabtree not an option for MIN

Sun, 29 Mar 2015 06:45:32 -0700

Free-agent WR Michael Crabtree (49ers) is not a target for the Minnesota Vikings at this time.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree is not receiving much interest this offseason and may have to compete for a roster spot when he signs with a team. Crabtree likely would be a late-round draft pick in drafts next season if he makes a roster.

49ers | Michael Crabtree struggling to find team

Tue, 24 Mar 2015 11:57:48 -0700

Free-agent WR Michael Crabtree (49ers) is having a hard time being signed this offseason, reportedly due to concerns regarding lower-leg injuries and a negative perception about his attitude.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree is a dynamic playmaker when he's at full health. It remains to be seen where he'll end up before the start of the 2015 season, but he has WR2 potential in all scoring formats as long as he stays on the field.

Wed, 18 Mar 2015 10:43:48 -0700

Free-agent WR Michael Crabtree (49ers) is meeting with the Miami Dolphins Wednesday, March 18, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree has not received much interest this offseason, so he could decide to sign with the Dolphins. It is not known if Crabtree would start for the Dolphins, but likely would be a one of the team's top three or four receivers. Crabtree probably would be an option in the later rounds of drafts next season.

NFL | Few sniffs for Michael Crabtree

Tue, 17 Mar 2015 20:50:32 -0700

Free-agent WR Michael Crabtree (49ers) has little to no market currently, according to a league source Tuesday, March 17. The lack of interest flows in part from a trend toward young receivers making an immediate impact.

Chargers | SD may pursue Michael Crabtree

Sat, 14 Mar 2015 08:15:36 -0700

Free-agent WR Michael Crabtree (49ers) could be an option for the San Diego Chargers this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree could be a starting option if he decides to sign with the Chargers this offseason. He finished this past season with 698 yards and four touchdowns and has had only one 1,000-yard season in his career. Crabtree probably would be a later-round pick in drafts if he signs with Washington.

Sat, 14 Mar 2015 08:14:52 -0700

Free-agent WR Michael Crabtree (49ers) has received interest from the Washington Redskins, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree probably would not be a starter if he joins the Redskins but could be the No. 3 receiver. He finished this past season with 698 yards and four touchdowns and has had only one 1,000-yard season in his career. Crabtree probably would be a later-round pick in drafts if he signs with Washington.

49ers | Michael Crabtree in 49ers' plans?

Thu, 05 Mar 2015 19:39:41 -0800

San Francisco 49ers impending free-agent WR Michael Crabtree is a player that the team is interested in re-signing, but his future with the 49ers may depend on the interest he receives when he hits free agency.

Fantasy Tip: It remains to be seen where he will end up in 2015. However, Crabtree has managed just one 1,000-yard season in six years with the 49ers so fantasy owners shouldn't count on him to be a major contributor regardless of where he plays next year.

49ers | SF begins talks with Michael Crabtree

Thu, 19 Feb 2015 14:08:50 -0800

San Francisco 49ers impending free-agent WR Michael Crabtree and the team have begun contract talks, according to head coach Jim Tomsula. General manager Trent Baalke said Wednesday, Feb. 18, that it's a priority for the 49ers to re-sign their own talent.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like things are pointing up for Crabtree to return to San Francisco. He's coming off a hugely disappointing 2014 campaign after playing in just five games in 2013, but has at least WR2 potential when he's healthy.

49ers | GM to meet with Michael Crabtree's agent

Wed, 18 Feb 2015 23:46:54 -0800

San Francisco 49ers general manager Trent Baalke plans to meet with the agent for free-agent WR Michael Crabtree (49ers) at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree is one of several free agents on the 49ers. He had a bounce-back year with 698 yards and four touchdowns. Crabtree would be a decent WR3 option in fantasy leagues but could go up a bit depending on where he lands.

49ers | Michael Crabtree unlikely to return?

Tue, 17 Feb 2015 22:26:41 -0800

San Francisco 49ers impending free-agent WR Michael Crabtree was frustrated with his role at the end of last season, and he recently removed any mention of the 49ers from his Twitter bio. Some interpret that as a signal he is ready to move on to a new organization.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree has a tremendous amount of talent, but he also has struggled to stay healthy over the years. Perhaps a change of scenery will transform him into the star he was supposed to be coming out of Texas Tech as a 10th overall pick

49ers | Franchise tag not realistic for Crabtree

Tue, 17 Feb 2015 10:20:37 -0800

San Francisco 49ers impending free-agent WR Michael Crabtree, who made $4 million last year, is unlikely to receive the franchise tag after his production was disappointing in 2014. The Niners are also unlikely to offer him a multi-year deal that surpasses that of WR Anquan Boldin's $6 million-a-year average.

Fantasy Tip: The good news is that Crabtree is more valuable in point-per-reception leagues, but the bad news is that his poor 2014 season will likely see many sour on him in 2015 fantasy football drafts. If he remains in SF, Colin Kaepernick's performance will depend on whether Crabtree can have a bounceback season and return value for his owners.

49ers | Michael Crabtree listed as probable

Fri, 26 Dec 2014 15:42:12 -0800

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (knee) is probable for Week 17.

Thu, 25 Dec 2014 18:38:32 -0800

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (knee) was a full participant in practice for the second day in a row Thursday, Dec. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree may be healthy, but he isnít worth using at FantasyScore in Week 17. He has had less than 20 receiving yards in three of his last four games, including one catch for five yards last week.

Wed, 24 Dec 2014 15:07:04 -0800

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree is uncertain if he will be back in San Francisco next year. Crabtree will be a free agent next year.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree ($5,555) has really had a disappointing season, as has the rest of the Niners offense this year. You shouldn't be looking to start him in Week 17 against the Arizona Cardinals.

49ers | Michael Crabtree expected to play

Tue, 23 Dec 2014 12:34:17 -0800

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (back) is expected to be ready for Week 17, according to offensive coordinator Greg Roman.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree ($5,555) figures to square off against Patrick Peterson this Sunday, so he could be in for a rough day, especially if he's hampered by the injury. On the season, the Arizona Cardinals as a whole have only allowed 11 touchdowns through 15 games to wide receivers.

Fri, 19 Dec 2014 14:19:18 -0800

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (back) was limited in practice Friday, Dec. 19, and is questionable for Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree remains a risky play this week, even with a FantasyScore price of $4,300. You can probably find better options available to you this week.

49ers | Frank Gore, Michael Crabtree limited

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 14:41:00 -0800

San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore (concussion) and WR Michael Crabtree (back) were limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Head coach Jim Harbaugh said Gore ($4,900) is going through the concussion protocol and should be able to play this week, though he's not an attractive option on FantasyScore as the San Diego Chargers have allowed just five rushing touchdowns to running backs this year. Crabtree ($4,300) also looks like he'll be able to play after missing practice yesterday but has been a season-long bust and is best left out of starting lineups.

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 5, and is listed as probable for Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree was held in check in Week 13 and will be looking to be more involved in offense this week. Crabtree costs $5,700 on FantasyScore, but owners may want to consider better options.

Thu, 04 Dec 2014 18:31:26 -0800

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (knee) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 4.

Fantasy Tip: San Francisco draws a great matchup against the Oakland Raiders in Week 14, but Crabtree ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) is still a shaky play at FantasyScore. He hasn't had a 100-yard game all year, and he hasn't had more than five catches in a game since Week 3.

Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (knee, ribs) injured his knee in addition to his ribs during the team's Week 13 game. Crabtree was able to return to the game after suffering the injuries.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree was able to return to the game, so he should have a good chance to play in Week 14. Owners will need to monitor his practice participation in case the injuries are more severe than first though.

49ers | Coach praises Michael Crabtree

Thu, 13 Nov 2014 10:33:32 -0800

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree was praised by head coach Jim Harbaugh, who said he has no issues with him. Harbaugh said he does not think Crabtree has any issue with how he is used in the team's offense. "I don't think so," Harbaugh said when asked if he thought Crabtree was unhappy in the offense. "Seems to be doing a fantastic job and getting the ball a lot."

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree only had three catches for 62 yards in Week 10 as the team continues to run the ball. It is tough to justify his $6,000 FantasyScore price as his role continues to be reduced.

49ers | Michael Crabtree unhappy with role

Tue, 11 Nov 2014 11:23:28 -0800

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree made it a point to voice his frustration about his role in the offense when interviewed about making a big fourth-down catch in the Week 10 win over the New Orleans Saints. Crabtree was pulled from many first- and second-down situations against the Saints. "Third down. I'm a third-down receiver. I mean, I'm like the third option. So I come in and I do my job," Crabtree said.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree had just three catches for 62 yards, including that big fourth-down conversion in overtime. He hasn't had more than five catches in a game since Week 3, though. The Niners went back to the running game against the Saints, and it remains their identity. It's hard to justify Crabtree's $6,000 FantasyScore price if he continues to be phased out of the passing game.

49ers | Michael Crabtree feeling healthy

Thu, 09 Oct 2014 18:06:43 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (foot) said Thursday, Oct. 9, that nothing is wrong with his foot that caused him to play limited snaps in Week 4 and Week 5.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree has struggled in the past two games, but assuming he is telling the truth about his foot, he could be a sneaky play at FantasyScore in Week 6. He will take up 13% percent of the cap ($,6500), but when he was healthy in Week 2 and Week 3, he logged a combined 17 catches for 162 yards and two scores.

49ers | Michael Crabtree has full practice

Fri, 03 Oct 2014 16:46:07 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (foot) was listed as having full participation in practice Friday, Oct. 3, and he is listed as probable for the Week 5 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Tip: Kansas City ranks eighth in the NFL against the pass by allowing just 221.5 yards per game through the air, but they have yielded eight passing touchdowns and two pass plays of 40 or more yards. The potential is there for Crabtree to be a decent WR2 or flex play in FantasyScore at $6500 (or 13 percent of the salary cap).

49ers | Michael Crabtree probable

Fri, 26 Sep 2014 15:13:16 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (quadriceps) practiced in full Friday, Sept. 26, and is probable for Week 4 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree has an excellent matchup against the Iggles, and if Vernon Davis (ankle, knee) can't play, that'll mean even more targets for Crabtree. FantasyScore is a PPR setup, meaning Crabtree has a great chance to return profit on his $7,200 (14.4% of cap) salary.

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (quadriceps) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 25.

Fantasy Tip: He should still be able to play in what could be a shootout with the Philadelphia Eagles. His price of $7,200 on FantasyScore is definitely reasonable.

49ers | Stevie Johnson has big game

Sun, 21 Sep 2014 20:40:39 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Stevie Johnson led the team with 103 receiving yards in the Week 3 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, and it was the first time a receiver on the team other than WRs Michael Crabtree or Anquan Boldin had more than 100 yards since WR Josh Morgan did it in 2010.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson can't be relied on for this kind of production often. The Niners abandoned the run game surprisingly, and the Arizona cornerbacks forced Colin Kaepernick to go to his third receiver more often.

49ers | Michael Crabtree active

Sun, 07 Sep 2014 13:01:26 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (calf) is active for Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree should start and be a solid part of the passing game. Crabtree is correctly priced at $5,900 at FantasyScore and probably will not return much of a profit. Crabtree could also be considered a risk because of his injury.

49ers | Michael Crabtree questionable

Fri, 05 Sep 2014 15:05:45 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (calf) was limited in practice Friday, Sept. 5, and is listed as questionable for Week 1 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: The Dallas defense could easily be the worst in the NFL entering the season opener. But how often will the Niners, a ground and pound team, be forced to throw the ball? And will Crabtree be 100 percent healthy? These are definitely things to consider before paying him in FantasyScore at a salary of $5,900 (11.8% of cap).

49ers | Michael Crabtree slowed by calf

Thu, 04 Sep 2014 17:54:59 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (calf) was a limited participant in practice because of a calf injury Thursday, Sept. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Keep an eye on Crabtree's status heading into Week 1. He is worth starting against a suspect Dallas defense, but he will count for 11.8% of your cap ($5,900) at FantasyScore so make sure he is up to speed before paying for him.
