Crabtree caught three of four targets for 31 yards in Sunday's 27-24 overtime loss to the Chiefs. 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. 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 in Week 14 against the Chiefs, a defense that has given up a league-high 297 passing yards per game with opponents often turning to a pass-heavy approach while playing from behind.
Crabtree caught three of six targets for 21 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 34-17 win over Oakland. 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 converted his three targets into a 7-yard catch during Sunday's 24-21 win over the Bengals. Lamar Jackson's start brought a lot of excitement to Baltimore, but Crabtree probably hopes Joe Flacco (hip) gets better soon. He was targeted fewer than six times for the first time this season. Reading too much into one game is difficult, but the Ravens' run-first approach with Jackson under center and the rookie's apparent rapport with Willie Snead should be noted before placing Crabtree in your lineup. His value depends heavily on who starts Sunday against Oakland, a pass defense that has been so-so this season with 245 yards surrendered per game
Crabtree caught three of seven targets for 32 yards in Sunday's 23-16 loss to the Steelers. 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.
