Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens WR Michael Crabtree's release was made official Monday, Feb. 25, saving the Ravens $4.6 million in salary cap space.
Fantasy Spin: Crabtree is over the hill, before the 2018 season he stringed together seasons with nine, eight and eight touchdowns in succession. He'll land somewhere, but he can't be seen as more than a WR4.
Baltimore Ravens WR Michael Crabtree is expected to be released Monday, Feb. 25.
Fantasy Spin: By the time he was able to rectify those issues, the Ravens made the change from Joe Flacco to Lamar Jackson and became the most run-heavy team in the league. Crabtree should not struggle to find work on the open market as a complementary wideout, but he should no longer be considered a primary option. Depending on his next landing spot, the 31-year-old may have enough left to be considered a touchdown-dependent WR3 in fantasy. Baltimore figures to be targeting receivers heavily again this offseason.
Baltimore Ravens WR Michael Crabtree is likely to be released in the offseason, according to The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec.
Baltimore Ravens WR Michael Crabtree posted two grabs for 38 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the AFC Wild Card playoff game loss against the Los Angeles Chargers for his first multi-TD game since Dec. 17, 2017 as a member of the Oakland Raiders.
Fantasy Spin: Crabtree managed just 54 grabs for 607 yards and three touchdowns, and he has had a lot of drops in the past couple of seasons. He is more of a WR4 or flex fantasy option in most leagues heading into 2019, so plan to have plenty of depth on hand.
Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Michael Crabtree has not been involved in the offense that much recently, but that could change in the AFC Wild Card Game against the Chargers on Sunday. The 31-year-old is coming off a Week 17 performance against the Browns where he caught both of his targets for 20 yards. It was the ninth straight outing that the 11th-year pro has failed to haul in more than three passes and marked the sixth occasion in the past seven games that he has been targeted four or fewer times. Also, he has not surpassed 40 receiving yards in any of the last nine contests. Overall, Crabtree has caught 16 of 23 targets for 135 yards and one touchdown since Lamar Jackson took over as the team's starting quarterback. However, Jackson has said that he plans on involving the Ravens' top three receivers more often this weekend. Crabtree is the best bet to have a big day among the team's wideouts because he is the biggest target and has had decent success against the Chargers in the past. The former Texas Tech star pulled in one of four targets in the Ravens' Week 16 victory the Chargers, and he is averaging nearly four receptions for 35.6 yards in nine games while also totaling five touchdowns.
Baltimore Ravens WR Michael Crabtree finished with two catches for just 20 yards in Week 17 against the Cleveland Browns.
Fantasy Spin: Crabtree had a disappointing first season in Baltimore, posting 54 grabs for just 607 yards and three touchdowns with plenty of drops. We'll see if the 31-year-old can make some noise in the playoffs to atone. Baltimore hosts the L.A. Chargers in the wild-card round next weekend.
Baltimore Ravens WR Michael Crabtree has a clause in his contract which would pay him $500,000 if he catches 60 passes during the 2018 season. He currently has 52 receptions entering Week 17's game versus Cleveland Browns, meaning he needs eight more catches to receive the bonus.
Baltimore Ravens WR Michael Crabtree had one catch on four targets in a 22-10 win over the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 16.
Fantasy Spin: Crabtree continues to be a non-factor with Lamar Jackson under center, and he has now been held under 40 yards in eight straight games. He has zero fantasy value in Baltimore's current offense.
Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Michael Crabtree did not post a catch and was targeted just one time despite being on the field for 45 offensive plays in Sunday's victory over the Buccaneers. It was the least amount of work that the 31-year-old veteran has seen this year, and marked the first time this season that he did not register a reception. The 10th-year pro has now failed to reach 40 receiving yards in seven straight weeks. Crabtree, who has 10 receptions over his last five games, is no longer worth consideration by fantasy owners.
Baltimore Ravens WR Michael Crabtree was targeted one time during the Week 15 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers but finished the game with zero receptions.
Fantasy Spin: Crabtree's value has gone down since Lamar Jackson has become the starting quarterback, and he has gone seven straight games with under 40 receiving yards. Owners should be able to find better options to use and can avoid Crabtree next week.
Baltimore Ravens WR Michael Crabtree (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 13.
Fantasy Spin: Crabtree has been quiet during the second half of the season with under 40 receiving yards in six games. The Ravens likely will continue to run the ball a majority of the time, so owners can consider benching Crabtree this week.
Baltimore Ravens WR Michael Crabtree (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 12.
Fantasy Spin: Crabtree has been held to three receptions or less in each of the last six games and has not posted more than 40 yards in any of those games. The Ravens are running more with Lamar Jackson as the quarterback, which hurts Crabtree fantasy value. He should have a favorable matchup this week but would not be more than a flex option.
Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Michael Crabtree caught three of four targets for 31 yards in Sunday's 27-24 overtime loss to the Chiefs. The 31-year-old, who has seen three or less passes his way in three of the past four weeks, has recorded no more than three receptions in six straight weeks. He also has not totaled more 36 receiving yards in any of those six outings. The 10th-year pro has only 13 receptions for 127 yards and one score since Nov. 1. Despite a favorable Week 15 matchup against the Buccaneers, fantasy owners just can't trust Crabtree.
Baltimore Ravens S Tony Jefferson (ankle), OL Alex Lewis (shoulder), CB Jimmy Smith (not injury related) and LB Terrell Suggs (not injury related) did not practice Friday, Dec. 7. Jefferson is listed as doubtful for the Week 14 game against the Kansas City Chiefs, while Lewis is questionable. The others are off the report. CB Marlon Humphrey (groin) was a limited participant, while QB Joe Flacco (hip), OL James Hurst (back), LB Anthony Levine (ankle), CB Tavon Young (groin) and LB Tim Williams (ankle) practiced in full and are each listed as questionable. WR John Brown (not injury related), WR Michael Crabtree (not injury related), S Eric Weddle (not injury related) and OL Marshal Yanda (not injury related) practiced in full and are off the report.
Baltimore Ravens WR Michael Crabtree (not injury related) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 7 and he is off the injury report ahead of the Week 14 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Fantasy Spin: Crabtree remains a decent WR4 or flex fantasy player in leagues of 12 or more teams, and perhaps he sees an uptick in production against a team he is familiar with from his days with the Oakland Raiders.
Baltimore Ravens WR Michael Crabtree (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 6.
Fantasy Spin: Crabtree has been targeted 20 times over the last four games but has been held to under 40 yards in all of those games. The Ravens may have to throw a lot against the Kansas City Chiefs this week, which makes Crabtree a possible option for fantasy lineups.
Baltimore Ravens WR Michael Crabtree (not injury related), CB Marlon Humphrey (groin), S Tony Jefferson (ankle), LB Anthony Levine (ankle), OL Alex Lewis (shoulder), CB Tavon Young (groin), S Eric Weddle (not injury related) and OT Marshal Yanda (not injury related) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 5. QB Joe Flacco (hip) and OT James Hurst (back) were limited, while LB Tim Williams (ankle) practiced in full.
Baltimore Ravens WR Michael Crabtree (not injury related) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 5.
Fantasy Spin: It was simply a maintenance day, which is usually given to veteran players during the mid-week sessions to help preserve them for game day. Treat Crabtree as a WR4 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 14 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Baltimore Ravens WR Michael Crabtree (undisclosed) walked off the field gingerly a couple of times Sunday, Dec. 2, which could have led to him playing just 35 snaps.
Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Michael Crabtree pulled down three of four targets for 36 yards in Sunday's victory over the Falcons. It is the second straight week that the 31-year-old has caught just three passes, although unlike last week he did not reach the end zone. Still, his 36 receiving yards, which included a nice 18-yard run-and-catch early in the first quarter, is the 10th-year vet's most since Week 7. The former Texas Tech star has just seven receptions for 64 yards and a score over the last three weeks. Unless the Ravens switch back to Joe Flacco under center, fantasy owners should consider Crabtree a WR4/flex option at best for the remainder of the campaign.
