WR - OAK - Questionable
Week 17 Outlook
Michael Crabtree limited to two catches by Texans
Michael Crabtree was limited to two catches and 33 yards receiving on seven targets in Saturday's playoff loss to the Texans.
Crabtree was hampered by the play of QB Connor Cook and the conservative play calling that resulted from his start. He was likely avoided for DFS purposes, and his performance was essentially what was expected given the circumstance.
Michael Crabtree limited Thursday
Oakland Raiders wide receiver Michael Crabtree (finger) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.
Similar to his teammate Amari Cooper, Crabtree will play Saturday against Houston despite being limited in practice this week. In a game that could be dominated by the run, Crabtree is a touchdown or bust DFS option for the Wild Card Round of the Playoffs facing a stifling Texans pass defense.
Michael Crabtree totals 47 yards against the Broncos
Michael Crabtree caught 5-of-8 targets for 47 yards Sunday against the Broncos. His longest catch went for 17 yards.
Lining up across from Aqib Talib is a daunting task in of itself. Add in the fact that Matt McGloin and Connor Cook were under center for the Raiders, it's actually amazing that he managed to catch five passes. As long as Derek Carr fully recovers from his leg injury, Crabtree and Amari Cooper should be one of the best wide receiver duos in the league next season.
Michael Crabtree leads team in receiving
Michael Crabtree caught 7-of-10 targets for 90 yards to lead the Raiders in all categories once again. His longest catch went for 35 yards.
Crabtree led the team in both targets and yards for the second week in a row. Next week's matchup against the Broncos is a daunting one, as the Broncos possess the league's best pass defense. When these teams played earlier in the season, Crabtree caught 2-of-6 targets for 27 yards.
Michael Crabtree is the main guy for the Raiders' passing attack
Michael Crabtee caught 6-of-8 targets for 60 yards and a touchdown. His longest catch went for 19 yards.
With Casey Hayward shadowing Amari Cooper, Derek Carr chose to utilize Crabtree on Sunday. No other receiver garnered more than three targets, although running back Jalen Richard did get five. Next week's game against the Colts is a good matchup for both Cooper and Crabtree, as Vontae Davis and Rashaan Melvin are both exploitable.
