Michael Crabtree signs with Ravens

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the Baltimore Ravens and former Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree have agreed to terms on a three-year deal.

Fantasy Impact

Crabtree will join a Ravens team notorious for adding veteran wideouts in the second half of their careers -- Anquan Boldin, Steve Smith, Derrick Mason, Jeremy Maclin. He'll be the clear-cut WR1, a role he may not flourish in. He was an upside WR2 during his tenure in Oakland. However, the Ravens are one of the pass-happiest offenses in the NFL and ample targets should set up Crabtree to have an outstanding year.

Michael Crabtree released by Raiders

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the Oakland Raiders have released wide receiver Michael Crabtree.

Fantasy Impact

The Raiders had said this offseason that they were keeping Crabtree on the roster, but that all changed when Jordy Nelson became a free agent. While Nelson hasn't signed yet, we expect that to come any moment. Crabtree, still just 30 years old, has some gas left in the tank. He's caught 25 touchdowns over the last three years, which ranks fifth among all wide receivers, behind only Antonio Brown, Doug Baldwin, DeAndre Hopkins, and Odell Beckham. That's going to be enough to land him with a team very soon. While there may have been some off-the-field stuff with him, Crabtree is likely a better receiver than Nelson at this point in their careers.

Michael Crabtree catches two passes in Week 17 loss

Michael Crabtree caught both of his targets for 17 yards in the Raiders' Week 17 loss to the Chargers.

Fantasy Impact

Crabtree started out the season hot but faded down the stretch for the Raiders. The 30-year-old wide receiver finishes 2017 with 58 catches for 618 yards and eight touchdowns.

Michael Crabtree does not catch a pass in Week 16 loss

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

Fantasy Impact

Crabtree moved back to WR2 with the return of Amari Cooper from his ankle injury. The Raiders could not get anything going offensively and Crabtree ended up with just the three targets. Its hard to trust Crabtree going into Week 17 when the Raiders face the Chargers and fantasy owners may want to avoid the veteran wide receiver.

Michael Crabtree catches seven passes in loss to Cowboys

Michael Crabtree caught seven of 17 targets for 39 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact

With Amari Cooper out with an injury, Crabtree saw an increased workload but could not do much with the extra targets. If Cooper has to sit out Week 16 expect Crabtree to have another high volume day in what should be a high scoring game against the Eagles.
