2016 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Jul-27-2016 by Shawn Childs


I was really happy to see Crabtree play at a high level in 2015. Health has been an issue at times in his career plus the 49ers really never gave him an upside opportunity other than 2012 (85/1105/9). Michael tied his career high in catches (85) and TDs (9) while posting a career best in targets (146). His yards per catch (10.8) were much shorter than expected especially when you add in his catch rate (58.2). He had three 100 yard receiver games, which all came over the first half of season. Crabtree finished with six double-digit targets games with five coming over the last ten games of the year. Michael had fewer than 60 yards receiving in seven of his last eight games while scoring four TDs. This season I expect Cooper to grab the lead role in WR targets, but Crabtree will still be an important part of the game plan. Fantasy owners don't respect his success as his ADP is more than 50 picks lower than Amari in 12 team leagues. His floor should be 75 catches with a very good chance at 1000+ yards and meaningful TDs.

2016 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #1
June 12th, 2016
6.01 Brandon Marianne - One of the great mysteries of the off-season is why on earth fellow WR Amari Cooper is going off the boards three to five rounds before Crabtree. I get it, Cooper is the future, but I believe the Raiders see them as a pair, working together like Marshall and Decker. This is a clear value pick.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #2
June 27th, 2016
5.10 Scout Fantasy - Armando Marsal - Finished as a top 20 WR in PPR formats. Tied his NFL career high in receptions and touchdowns. It appears he found a home in Oakland and earned the trust of his young quarterback. I like him as my WR3.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #3
August 10th, 2016
6.10 Scout Fantasy - Dr. Roto - I am buying into Carr and the Raiders taking the next step towards respectability.
