Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree caught four of his seven targets for 21 yards in a 21-13 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs Thursday, Dec. 8.

Fantasy Tip: The entire passing attack struggled in this one. The offense should bounce back against San Diego in Week 14, and Crabtree will be a low-end WR2 or luxury WR3.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree was a limited participant in practice throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report, although he has continued to be productive while hurt.

Raiders | Michael Crabtree listed as questionable

Fri, 02 Dec 2016 14:41:59 -0800

Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree (ankle) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Week 13 against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Tip: Ronald Darby, who was expected to see Crabtree the most Sunday, was ruled out earlier in the day, making Crabtree an even stronger WR2 play than already was. While another eight-catch day may not be in the cards for him this week, he's looking like a strong bet to end a four-game streak without a touchdown.

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 07:35:12 -0800

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree was limited in practice throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He should receive a decent amount of targets this afternoon and should be considered as a low-end WR2 or high-end WR3 in most fantasy formats.

Raiders | Michael Crabtree listed as questionable

Fri, 25 Nov 2016 13:40:22 -0800

Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree (ankle) was limited in practice all week and has been listed as questionable for Week 12 versus the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree is coming off a highly disappointing game and struggled with drops in the Monday night win over the Houston Texans in Mexico City. He'll have his work cut out for him as he'll likely draw impressive rookie James Bradberry in coverage, but he's a trusted option for Derek Carr and should be a serviceable WR3 as a result.

Raiders | Michael Crabtree limited

Wed, 23 Nov 2016 16:56:10 -0800

Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree should be able to play in Week 12 unless he suffers a setback during practice. He has been a bit inconsistent over the last several weeks and has recorded only 32 yards in the last two games. He should continue to receive a solid amount of targets in the passing game and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Raiders | Michael Crabtree disappears in Mexico

Mon, 21 Nov 2016 21:47:04 -0800

Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree had three receptions for just five yards in the Week 11 game against the Houston Texans Monday, Nov. 21, in Mexico City. He was targeted seven times.

Fantasy Tip: It was a strange stat line for Crabtree, and it's uncertain why he and Derek Carr were unable to get on the same page. Crabtree will bounce back in Week 12 against a leaky Carolina Panthers pass defense and he should still be trusted as a low-end WR1 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

Sat, 05 Nov 2016 07:27:09 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree was targeted 16 times versus the Bucs, hauling in eight passes for a season-high 108 yards. He should be viewed as a low-end WR1 or high-end WR2 in all fantasy formats going forward.

Sun, 30 Oct 2016 16:32:08 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree had some tough seasons in San Francisco with inconsistency and plenty of injuries, but he has finally reached his full potential in Oakland jelling rather nicely with Derek Carr. He is a low-end WR1 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 8 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

He has re-emerged as a solid WR2 in most fantasy formats and will remain so as long as he can avoid the injury bug.

Raiders | Michael Crabtree flashes in opener

Sun, 11 Sep 2016 19:26:38 -0700

Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree had a team-high seven receptions for 87 yards in the Week 1 game against the New Orleans Saints. He also had the key game-winning two-point conversion reception late in the fourth quarter.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree was targeted nine times and looked like a solid low-end WR2 for most fantasy owners. This was a very favorable matchup against a poor Saints secondary. The Raiders face another favorable matchup in Week 2 with a visit from the Atlanta Falcons, a team that allowed four passing touchdowns in Week 1.

Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree said he has been practicing all the routes during practice and continues to improve his chemistry with QB Derek Carr.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree was a potent complement to Amari Cooper last year, and he should land firmly in WR3 territory again in 2016.

Raiders | Michael Crabtree coming off comeback year

Tue, 19 Jan 2016 17:28:57 -0800

Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree was targeted a career high 146 times in 2015, while tying a career high in catches (85) and touchdowns (9). His 922 receiving yards were the second most of his career for a single season.

Fantasy Tip: Last season was supposed to be star rookie receiver Amari Cooper's for the taking. Crabtree really flew under the radar throughout the season, and actually outperformed Cooper from a fantasy perspective. The key again for Crabtree next season will be to stay healthy, which he has done the last two years. If he can do that, he could end up as WR2 again, with added value in PPR leagues.

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 21:23:08 -0800

Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree posted three receptions for 34 yards and a touchdown in the Week 17 game against the Kansas City Chiefs. He was targeted seven times.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree failed to hit the century mark in his final eight games after three 100-yard games in the first eight outings, hitting the wall a little bit. He still managed 922 receiving yards with nine touchdowns to re-emerge as a solid WR2/3 or flex option in most fantasy leagues.

Raiders | Michael Crabtree evaluated for concussion

Mon, 21 Dec 2015 10:32:53 -0800

Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree (concussion) was evaluated for a concussion in the Week 15 loss to the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree finished with six grabs on 11 targets for 70 yards against the Packers. Oakland has a short week against the San Diego Chargers on Christmas Eve, so Crabtree may be in danger of missing the next game. Keep a close eye on his status early this week and whether he'll need to pass through the league's concussion protocol.

Raiders | Michael Crabtree's matchup looking good

Fri, 18 Dec 2015 18:22:23 -0800

Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree faces the Green Bay Packers in Week 15, and the Packers will be starting two rookies at cornerback with CB Sam Shields (concussion) ruled out for the game.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) has been quiet in recent weeks with the Raiders facing some strong defenses, but with Amari Cooper ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) playing through a foot injury, Crabtree could be the main beneficiary of Green Bay's banged-up secondary.

Raiders | Michael Crabtree quiet in victory

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 22:20:44 -0800

Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree posted four receptions for just 19 yards in the Week 14 game against the Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree has tailed off in the past five weeks, in terms of yardage, going for 55 or fewer yards, including 20 or less in two of the past three. He is still worth a look as a WR3 or flex FantasyScore play in Week 15 against Green Bay, as two of his three 100-yard games have come at home.

Wed, 09 Dec 2015 16:16:02 -0800

Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree and the Raiders agreed to a contract extension Wednesday, Dec. 9. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) has been incredibly consistent this year, resulting in one of the best seasons of his career, so the extension is deserved. If Crabtree can stay healthy, he could have a nice tenure in Oakland with Derek Carr at the helm and Amari Cooper opposite him.

Sun, 25 Oct 2015 19:42:18 -0700

Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree posted six receptions for 63 yards with a touchdown in the Week 7 game against the San Diego Chargers. He was targeted eight times.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has posted four or more receptions in each of his six games, and 54 or more yards in each of his past three. He is a solid low-end WR2 or must-start WR3/flex play in FantasyScore at this price level.

Raiders | Michael Crabtree hasn't dropped a pass

Tue, 20 Oct 2015 16:47:38 -0700

Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree hasn't dropped one of his 46 targets this year.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has at least four catches in all five games this year but has only one touchdown to show for it. The San Diego Chargers, who he faces in Week 7, have allowed the second-fewest PPR fantasy points per game to wideouts (24.6), though, making Crabtree a tough sell on FantasyScore coming off the bye.

Raiders | Michael Crabtree's role growing?

Fri, 16 Oct 2015 20:27:49 -0700

Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree was praised for his contributions on and off the field by offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave. "We just want to keep building his role in the offense," Musgrave said.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has been targeted at least eight times in four of the five games thus far, but his two best games came against the struggling defenses of Baltimore and Chicago. With that in mind, he only needs to be considered at FantasyScore when the Raiders draw a friendly matchup.

Raiders | Michael Crabtree listed as probable

Fri, 09 Oct 2015 15:55:45 -0700

Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 9, and is listed as probable for the Week 5 game against the Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) suffered the injury last week but appears to be ready to play against the Broncos. He has played well in the first few games of the season but will be facing a tough Broncos secondary. Crabtree could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore but likely will not post big numbers during the game.

Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct.8.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) appears to be on track to play in Week 5 against the Denver Broncos. He has caught at least five passes in three of the first four games of the season and is coming off an 80-yard performance in Week 4. He will be facing a tough Broncos defense but could be a cheaper option on FantasyScore.

Raiders | Michael Crabtree sits out

Wed, 07 Oct 2015 16:39:08 -0700

Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) suffered the injury during the last game, so owners will need to monitor the situation to see if he will be able to play in Week 5 against the Denver Broncos. Crabtree has played well this season but may not be the best option because he is dealing with a tough Broncos defense.

Raiders | Michael Crabtree returns to action

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 13:55:34 -0700

Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree (ankle) returned to Week 4's game against the Chicago Bears in the second half, after he suffered an ankle injury during the first half.

Fantasy Tip: Obviously, Crabtree's ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) injury was not as serious as it initially appeared. He finished the game with five receptions for 80 yards and should be good to go for Week 5's contest against the Denver Broncos.

Raiders | Michael Crabtree suffers injury

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 10:51:46 -0700

Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree (leg) suffered a right leg injury during the team's Week 4 game.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) may be dealing with a serious injury, so owners should look for an update on his status in the next day or two. Crabtree has posted some solid numbers but may be on the sidelines for the time being.

Raiders | Michael Crabtree targeted frequently

Sun, 27 Sep 2015 18:51:04 -0700

Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree had just four receptions for 36 yards in the Week 3 game against the Cleveland Browns. He was targeted nine times.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is clearly the second option behind Amari Cooper ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) in the Oakland offense, and Andre Holmes ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and Seth Roberts ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) posted touchdowns. However, the team is trying to get Crabtree involved and he could be a nice lower-priced option in future weeks, especially if Cooper should ever have to miss time.

Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree had nine catches on 16 targets for 111 yards and a touchdown in a 37-33 win over the Baltimore Ravens in Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) led the team in receptions, targets and yards Sunday, and he has now been targeted 24 times through the first two games. He appears to be a very key part of the offensive game plan, and he should be on the radar as a potential value play at FantasyScore.

Raiders | Derek Carr bonding with Michael Crabtree

Thu, 06 Aug 2015 17:27:12 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr is building on-field chemistry with WR Michael Crabtree, according to offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave. "He [Crabtree] and Derek [Carr] have definitely established a rapport in the short time they've been together. We love the fact that they're making plays in practice, because we want to play the same way in the game. They're working hard. They work hard together. I'm glad that Michael's part of our team," said Musgrave.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree is certainly the most accomplished receiver in Oakland, and he should earn the starting job opposite rookie Amari Cooper. Crabtree is being drafted as a WR5, and he'll have upside to offer very late in drafts.

Raiders | Michael Crabtree showing off hands

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 15:29:26 -0700

Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree could be playing himself into a new contract this season as he continues to impress his new team. Crabtree's hands have been his strong suit throughout his career, and he's displaying those hands again with the Raiders.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree and WR Amari Cooper could make a formidable receiving duo in Oakland's new-look offense. It may take some time for Crabtree to adjust to his new team, but he's worth a look in WR4 or WR5 territory.

Raiders | Michael Crabtree stands out

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 06:44:51 -0700

Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree has been the star of the team's first three days of training camp, according to San Francisco Chronicle writer Vic Tafur, who categorized the wide receiver position as a team strength.

Fantasy Tip: This is encouraging for Crabtree's fantasy forecast, but we all know injuries are a concern, and seeing him do it over a full slate has become akin to spotting a sasquatch. Consider Crabtree a risky WR3 or ideal WR4 target.

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.

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.

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 17:03:20 -0700

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

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree could compete for a starting job during training camp but should have a solid role in the passing game even if he does not start for the team. Crabtree could be a late-round option in fantasy leagues next season.

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.
