Crabtree reeled in one reception for four yards during Thursday's preseason loss to the Packers.

EDGE Analysis

Crabtree saw just one target in limited action, as the veteran and No. 2 receiver on the Raiders' depth chart doesn't have much competition at this point for his spot. Oakland's entire offense failed to click Thursday, but they figure to get things rolling by Week 1 with quarterback Derek Carr at the helm.

Crabtree hauled in both of his targets for a team-leading 38 yards in Friday's preseason opener versus the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Although Crabtree received just a couple of looks during his short time on the field, he was able to bring in both for an average of 19 yards per catch. Crabtree established himself as a steady and efficient option in the Raiders' improving passing attack last season, and he appears to be off to a respectable start to his second campaign as a Raider.

Crabtree caught three of his seven targets for 34 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

Crabtree capped off a spectacular bounce-back season on Sunday with his ninth touchdown, which matched his previous career high from 2012 when he was playing for the 49ers. The 28-year old also matched his career-high in receptions with 85, a number that he also achieved back in 2012. The Raiders took a flyer on the free agent after he seemed to be on a steady decline following a season-ending knee injury in 2013, and it certainly paid off. Crabtree will continue to be one of the top-two offensive options heading into next year, as he and Amari Cooper figure to give opposing defenses fits in the secondary. He's under contract for the next three years at a minimum, so things are looking up for the Raiders.

Crabtree caught six of his team-high eight targets for 39 yards and a touchdown Thursday against the Chargers.

EDGE Analysis

It was a somewhat productive night for Crabtree, although one would have hoped he could crack 40 yards receiving with Amari Cooper (foot) limited for much of the game. The Raiders passing attack was underwhelming in general, and they will not have any easier of a time next week in Kansas City. Crabtree could be Derek Carr's top target again in Week 17 if Cooper continues to be limited by his ailing foot.

Crabtree secured six of 11 targets for 70 yards in Sunday's 30-20 loss to the Packers.

EDGE Analysis

Crabtree continues to be David Carr's most targeted wideout on most weeks, now having tallied double-digit looks in three of his last five games. Notably, the veteran receiver saw some depth on his receptions against the Packers, getting his yards-per-catch average into the double digits for the first time since Week 10 against the Vikings. Consequently, his 70 yards also represented his best total in that category since his last 100-yard game, which came in Week 9 versus the Steelers. The business relationship between Crabtree and the Raiders has certainly been mutually beneficial, with David Carr taking a significant step forward as a result of Crabtree's contributions, and the veteran receiver retaining an outside chance of surpassing his career-high 85 receptions if he can haul in 10 passes over the final two games.

Crabtree was removed from Sunday's contest against the Packers to be evaluated for a concussion.

EDGE Analysis

Prior to his departure, Crabtree corralled three receptions for 34 yards. With Seth Roberts tending to an abdominal injury and Rod Streater (non-injury) inactive, the Raiders's WR corps could be whittled down to Amari Cooper (foot), Andre Holmes, and Jeremy Ross for the rest of the second half.

Crabtree caught four of five targets for just 19 yards in Sunday's 15-12 comeback win at Denver.

EDGE Analysis

Crabtree wasn't much of a factor, but Derek Carr struggled outside of a pair of second half touchdowns. The veteran wideout had scored in each of the last two games, but hasn't made many big plays or been as involved since posting consecutive 100-yard games at the beginning of November. He'll try to get back on track from a production standpoint next week against Green Bay.

Crabtree signed a four-year extension with the Raiders on Wednesday, that is reportedly worth $35 million and includes $19 million in guaranteed money, ibabuzz.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's a nice payday for the 2009 first-rounder, who joined the Raiders this past offseason via the 49ers on a one-year deal. Since then, Crabtree has reestablished his value as a player, both in real and fantasy terms, while having recorded 66 catches for 760 yards and seven TDs through 12 games to date. By inking Crabtree to an extension, the Raiders have solidified the top of their wideout depth chart for the foreseeable future, with talented rookie Amari Cooper also locked in as a starter for in the team's Derek Carr-helmed offense.

Crabtree caught five of 11 targets for 45 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 34-20 loss to the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

Crabtree wasn't too efficient Sunday, but came up with a nice 25-yard touchdown in the first half. He nearly had a second score later in the game, but QB Derek Carr made an errant throw as the veteran wideout was streaking alone across the field. After posting back-to-back 100-yard games against the Jets and Steelers at the beginning of November, Crabtree hasn't been as productive lately, with just 19 receptions for 169 yards over the last four games. He won't find things much easier next week against a stingy Broncos' secondary.

Crabtree caught 4-of-8 targets for 19 yards and a touchdown Sunday in Tennessee.

EDGE Analysis

Crabtree posted his worst yardage total of the season, but managed to salvage a respectable fantasy performance due to his touchdown. The 28-year-old receiver has been incredibly consistent all season, as he's failed to top 50 yards just twice. Expect the veteran to bounce back to his usual levels of production next week against the Chiefs.
