Crabtree recorded a team-leading eight catches for 102 yards on 11 targets during Sunday's 17-10 road win over the Titans.

EDGE Analysis

The Raiders offense didn't generate much through the air Sunday versus an improved Titans defense, but Crabtree was the team's most reliable threat on the outside and accounted for over half of the yardage generated by the team's wideouts. He already has 19 catches for 220 yards and a score through three games, and he appears to have improved on his rapport with quarterback Derek Carr in the offseason, as the two were productive, yet inefficient last year. Crabtree will look to keep it up next week versus the Ravens on the road.

Crabtree reeled in four catches on five targets for 31 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's loss to the Falcons.

EDGE Analysis

Crabtree's first touchdown of the 2016 season came early in the fourth quarter on fourth and goal from the two-yard line. Despite the Raiders' loss, quarterback Derek Carr found success in the short passing game while Crabtree finished behind fellow receiver Amari Cooper, tight end Clive Walford, and running back Latavius Murray in terms of receiving yardage and catches. Crabtree's streak of at least three receptions per game has extended to 19 contests, and he'll look to keep that going next week against the Titans.

Crabtree caught seven of his nine targets for 87 yards in Sunday's win over the Saints. He also leaped over a defender to grab what was ultimately the game-winning two-point conversion in the fourth quarter.

EDGE Analysis

Crabtree played the role of possession receiver Sunday to great effect, as four of his catches went for first downs and he was entrusted to come down with the ball as the Raiders boldly went for two to take the lead late in the fourth quarter. Crabtree enjoyed a bounce-back season in 2015 after moving to Oakland and is locked into a prominent role on an up-and-coming offense. He should be heavily used once again next week versus the Falcons.

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.
