Crabtree caught three of four targets for 31 yards in Sunday's 27-24 overtime loss to the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

Crabtree moved the chains a few times with nice catches along the sideline, but he also had an offensive pass interference penalty that stalled a drive in the fourth quarter. He's largely been limited to run blocking since Lamar Jackson (ankle) took over at quarterback, averaging 2.5 catches for 23.8 yards the past four weeks. A friendly Week 15 matchup probably won't make much difference unless Joe Flacco (hip) ends up getting the start.

Crabtree caught three of four targets for 36 yards during Sunday's 26-16 win over the Falcons.

EDGE Analysis

Yes, 36 yards isn't much, but it's actually Crabtree's highest total since Week 7. The veteran target has struggled as of late, no matter whether it's Joe Flacco (hip) or Lamar Jackson at quarterback. Early during Sunday's game, Crabtree enjoyed some of the benefits of playing with a passer of Jackson's unique skillset as the rookie scrambled out of trouble and hit Crabtree over the middle for an 18-yard catch-and-run. It's hard to pay much attention to any of Baltimore's targets in what has become such a run-heavy attack, but Crabtree does have a favorable matchup next Sunday against the Chiefs, a defense that has given up a league-high 297 passing yards per game as opponents are often forced to throw while playing from behind.

Crabtree caught three of six targets for 21 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 34-17 win over Oakland.

EDGE Analysis

Crabtree's big contribution came early in the fourth quarter when he took a quick slant eight yards for a touchdown -- putting Baltimore up by two scores. The veteran target looked a little better than last year's one-catch performance, but it's been rough lately whether it's been Lamar Jackson or Joe Flacco (hip) throwing him the ball. He hasn't topped 35 yards in a game in four contests. Fans would be right to be excited about Crabtree's first touchdown since Week 6, but his overall performance lately should cause alarm. Fortunately, next Sunday brings a matchup against a Falcons defense surrendering 286 yards receiving per game, among the worst in the league.

Crabtree caught three of seven targets for 32 yards in Sunday's 23-16 loss to the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

Pittsburgh has had Crabtree's number this year, as he managed only three catches for a season-low 29 yards against the Steelers in Week 4. Luckily for Crabtree's owners, these AFC North rivals won't meet again this season barring a possible playoff matchup. After scoring at least eight touchdowns in each of the previous three seasons, the veteran wide receiver heads into Baltimore's Week 10 bye having made just two trips to the end zone.

Crabtree caught three of five targets for 31 yards in Sunday's 36-21 loss to Carolina.

EDGE Analysis

Crabtree understandably had his lowest targets, catches, and yardage totals since Week 4 on a day in which his offense as a whole struggled mightily for most of the game. The 31-year-old has just one week of more than 66 receiving yards on the year and hasn't been the red-zone target that he was in Oakland. Nevertheless, the Texas Tech product will try and remedy that Week 9 at home against Pittsburgh.

Crabtree caught six of 12 targets for 66 yards in Sunday's 12-9 overtime loss to the Browns.

EDGE Analysis

Crabtree finished as Baltimore's leading receiver, but he'll be kicking himself for dropping what would have been the go-ahead touchdown with one minute left in regulation. The physical wide receiver's crisp route running and ability to create separation should generate a significant number of targets for Crabtree against the Titans in Week 6, but he still hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 1. The lack of touchdowns is disturbing for a player that scored at least eight times in each of the previous three seasons with the Raiders before coming over to Baltimore.

Crabtree caught three of eight targets for 29 yards Sunday against the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

This was Crabtree's worst outing of the season, a game marred by some ugly drops from the veteran. Still, he was quarterback Joe Flacco's favorite target, garnering eight targets over the course of the contest. Drops are a part of the equation when it comes to Crabtree as he's tied for the league lead (3) per the Washington Post. Still, it's clear that he has Flacco's trust and his role isn't going anywhere in the Baltimore offense. Crabtree will face a Browns defense that gives up 278 passing yards per game in Week 5.

Crabtree caught seven of 10 targets for 61 yards during Sunday's 27-14 win over Denver.

EDGE Analysis

He might have been wearing different colors, but Crabtree frustrated Denver's defense just as he has in recent years with division rival Oakland. The veteran receiver has become something of a security blanket for Joe Flacco despite it being his first season in Baltimore. Albeit with a modest 10.3 yards per catch, he leads the team in catches with 15 and targets with 26. His next challenge will be up against a Steelers defense that has been beaten in the passing game thus far this season.

Crabtree caught three of six targets for 38 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

It was a solid debut from Crabtree and the rest of Baltimore's new receivers as he, John Brown, and Willie Snead all caught touchdowns. Crabtree tied for the team lead in targets as the Ravens opted to spread the ball around to several different options. Crabtree still profiles as the team's No.1 option on the outside, but Snead and Brown will continue to garner targets on a consistent basis as well. Look for Baltimore's passing attack to emphasize spreading the ball around rather than relying on one wideout to generate most of the production.

Crabtree isn't in uniform for Saturday's preseason contest at Miami, freelance NFL writer Jeff Zrebiec reports.

EDGE Analysis

Crabtree has reeled off receptions of 29 and 30 yards this preseason, both of them passes from Joe Flacco. If the connection continues into the regular season, Crabtree would be the best bet among the Ravens' new receiving corps to reach 1,000 yards for the third time in his career (and first time since 2016).
