2015 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)Last updated on Nov-25-2015 by Shawn Childs
Update (11/25): Crabtree has been shockingly healthy and productive this season and has far outperformed expectations. Already this season he's caught 57 passes for 696 yards and five TDs. Those would have been considered pretty solid numbers for a full season for Crabtree. He has built a solid rapport with Derek Carr and the QB has really leaned on Crabtree when he needs a completion. Carr has already thrown his way 96 times through 10 games. Fantasy owners have to be pleased with his production.
Fantasy owners have been just dying for Crabtree to have his breakout season. Michael missed the first 11 games of the 2013 campaign due to a torn Achilles. He had 19 catches for 284 yards and one score in five games. In three playoff games that year, he caught 15 passes for 203 yards. It was good to see him on the field, but he wasn't ready to make the impact that he showed over his final eight games in 2012 (55 catches, 813 yards and 7 TDs). Last year, the 49ers struggled to get him involved in the offense; Crabtree didn't have one game with more than 100 yards receiving. He finished only two games with double-digit targets. On the year, he caught 68 of 108 targets for 698 yards and four TDs. Michael averaged only 10.2 yards per catch as QB Colin Kaepernick was running for his life (52 sacks). The Raiders will throw the ball far more often than San Fran did in 2014. Crabtree should catch at least 80 passes has an excellent chance of topping his career high in receiving yards (1,105 in 2012). He's a gift in drafts right now (ADP of 149, 56th WR off the board). I expect him to deliver WR2 numbers.
