Michael Crabtree active in Week 2 for his Cardinals debut

Michael Crabtree will dress and be the Cardinals' fifth WR this week in his debut.

Fantasy Impact

Crabtree's snap count will be something to watch for week 2 as he makes his debut. In the Cardinals' air raid offense week 1, each of the top four WRs among the depth chart played on at least 76 percent of the offensive snaps. In addition, Murray attempted a league-high 54 passes week 1, with an intended air yards per attempt of 10.5 (4th). Any Cardinals WR is liable to have a good fantasy day on a given week.

Michael Crabtree inactive for Week 1

Michael Crabtree (coach's decision) is inactive for the Cardinals' Week 1 game against Detroit.

Fantasy Impact

Crabtree joined the Cardinals late in the preseason, and figured to be the WR 3 in Kliff Kingsbury's Air-Raid offense. Evidently, Kingsbury may not feel Crabtree is ready for game action. Look for Kyler Murray to target Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk with a heavy dose of passes Sunday.

Michael Crabtree listed as starter on Cardinals first depth chart

Michael Crabtree is listed as a starter on the Cardinals' first official depth chart, Darren Urban reports.

Fantasy Impact

It's not a shocking development, as Crabtree was the favorite to start alongside Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk. The depth chart confirms that Andy Isabella and KeeSean Johnson will not get the opportunity to play a lot of snaps as rookies, barring injury to Crabtree, Fitzgerald, or Kirk.

Michael Crabtree signs one-year contract with Cardinals

The Arizona Cardinals signed WR Michael Crabtree to a 1-year deal worth $3.25M, as reported by NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Crabtree's salary can increase to a maximum value of $5.5M this season.

Fantasy Impact

This comes in the wake of an injury that will likely land fourth-round rookie Hakeem Butler on IR. Crabtree steps into a decently deep WR corps, featuring Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk as established options, and likely rookie Andy Isabella as a gadget and field stretcher option in three-wide sets. This move could bump Isabella out of a starting role, but Crabtree will find it tough to see reliable volume. He should be viewed as a dart throw at best, with some red zone upside.

Michael Crabtree signs with Cardinals

The official Twitter of the Arizona Cardinals is reporting that the team has agreed to a one-year deal with WR Michael Crabtree.

Fantasy Impact

This is the second time the Cardinals and Crabtree have come close to a deal, only the second time was a charm as they inked a one-year deal with the veteran wideout. With Hakeem Butler likely headed to IR, Crabtree will fill the rookie's void assuming he makes the final cut. There is minimal fantasy value here at the moment but things could change in the regular season. Crabtree is only worth a flier in deeper formats for the time being.
