Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Crabtree was listed as a starter along with WRs Christian Kirk and Larry Fitzgerald on the team's unofficial depth chart released Tuesday, Sept. 3.
Huddle Up: Crabtree hasn't been garnering much fantasy consideration and this isn't enough to push him into relevance. Fitzgerald remains the safest option in the Cardinals' passing attack as a WR4 while Kirk has the most upside.

The Arizona Cardinals signed free-agent WR Michael Crabtree (Ravens) to a one-year contract on Wednesday, Aug. 21.
Huddle Up: The two sides failed to come to terms earlier this month, but after Hakeem Butler broke his hand and Kevin White was released the Cardinals decided to revisit bringing the veteran on board to help stabilize a position that's long on potential but short on experience. At this stage of his career, Crabtree is a steady underneath option and potential red-zone target (he scored 25 TDs with the Raiders in 2015-17), but he's nothing more than a watch list candidate for the time being.

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.
Huddle Up: 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.
Huddle Up: 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 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.
Huddle Up: 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 WR Michael Crabtree finished with two catches for just 20 yards in Week 17 against the Cleveland Browns.
Huddle Up: 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 had one catch on four targets in a 22-10 win over the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 16.
Huddle Up: 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 WR Michael Crabtree was targeted one time during the Week 15 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers but finished the game with zero receptions.
Huddle Up: 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.
Huddle Up: 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.
Huddle Up: 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.
