  • Crabtree caught seven passes on 13 targets for 60 yards in Sunday's 26-15 loss to the Chiefs. Crabtree's target total marked a season best in his return from a one-game suspension, while fellow starting wide receiver Amari Cooper missed a majority of the contest due to an aggravated left ankle injury. Crabtree's increased involvement didn't translate to fantasy prosperity, however, as he averaged just 4.6 yards per target and etched a long reception of 13 yards. If Cooper is forced to miss additional time, Crabtree could be in line for a similar level of volume in Week 15 against the Cowboys, especially if the Raiders fall behind early again.

  • Crabtree (suspension) was reinstated to the active roster Monday. The Raiders made do without Crabtree and Amari Cooper (ankle, concussion) in Sunday's 24-17 win over the Giants, getting big games from Marshawn Lynch and Cordarrelle Patterson, with Clive Walford, Seth Roberts and Johnny Holton also chipping in. Crabtree may find himself ideally positioned in Week 14 against the Chiefs, potentially facing one of the worst pass defenses in the league without Cooper around to compete for targets. Even if Cooper does make it back, both wideouts would be in a good spot.

  • Raiders' Michael Crabtree: Ban cut in half
    By RotoWire Staff

    The NFL reduced Crabtree's suspension from two games to one Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Crabtree was punished after a scuffle broke out with Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib on Sunday in which both players threw punches during multiple encounters. With his initial ban cut in half, Crabtree will sit out Sunday against the Giants before preparing for a Week 14 matchup at Kansas City. With Amari Cooper (concussion, ankle) ailing at the moment, the Raiders promoted wide receiver Isaac Whitney from the practice squad to bolster depth behind Seth Roberts, Cordarrelle Patterson and Johnny Holton.

  • Raiders' Michael Crabtree: Suspended two games
    By RotoWire Staff

    Crabtree was suspended Monday two games without pay for violating the league's unsportsmanlike conduct and unnecessary roughness rules, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Crabtree got into an altercation with Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib on Sunday that resulted in punches thrown by both players. Talib was also suspended two games, though it's likely both will appeal. If the suspension stands, Crabtree will miss Week 13 and Week 14 -- the first week of the fantasy playoffs in most formats. Seth Roberts figures to step into the starting lineup in Crabtree's absence.

  • Crabtree was ejected from Sunday's game against the Broncos, Vic Tafur of The Athletic Bay Area reports. On the second play of the Raiders' second possession, Crabtree and Aqib Talib became embroiled in a shoving match down the left sideline that resulted in both throwing punches. Because the fight induced three ejections -- also, Talib and Raiders guard Gabe Jackson, who shoved an official -- Crabtree will likely be facing some sort of punishment this week. With Crabtree gone, the offense will turn to Seth Roberts, Cordarrelle Patterson and Johnny Holton to complement Crabtree's fellow starting wideout Amari Cooper.
