Crabtree caught six of nine targets for 93 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 21-0 win over the Titans. Crabtree got the scoring started by hauling in a four-yard Joe Flacco pass for a first-quarter touchdown. It was a night of seconds for the nine-year veteran as he led the team in receiving for the second time on the year while also scoring his second touchdown. He'll try to keep up the momentum Week 7 against the Saints.
Crabtree caught six of 12 targets for 66 yards in Sunday's 12-9 overtime loss to the Browns. 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 who 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. 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. 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 receptions with 15 and targets with 26. His next challenge will be in Week 5 against a Steelers defense that has been beaten frequently in the passing game thus far this season.
Crabtree secured five of 10 targets for 56 yards in the Ravens' 34-23 loss to the Bengals on Thursday. The veteran possession receiver served as an effective complement to the speedier John Brown on the night, and his catch total drew even with those of Willie Snead and Javorius Allen for the team lead. Crabtree has hauled in eight receptions over the first pair of games, providing the type of mid-range presence that he's built his NFL reputation on. He'll look to build on the 16 targets he's already logged when the Ravens face off with the Broncos in Week 3.
