Fantasy Football: Top 5 Baltimore Ravens to get on your team
2. Michael Crabtree:
Michael Crabtree is one of the players the Ravens got that people are really under valuing. Crabtree scores touchdowns and touchdowns are Fantasy Football gold. Crabtree had eight touchdowns last season and that was on a “down year.” Crabtree is good for at least seven touchdowns per season. He is one of the best red zone threats the NFL has. I have said it before and I will say it again, the Raiders will miss Crabtree more than they think they will.
Crabtree is going to be the number one receiver of the offense. The offense is much improved at the wide receiver position, but Crabtree is easily the top guy. He’s the closest thing the Ravens have had to Anquan Boldin and he may even be better for the purple and black. If a down year for Crabtree is 58 receptions, 618 yards and eight touchdowns, a bounce back year is going to be huge. The Ravens made one of the smartest signing with the addition of Crabtree. Do the same thing for your Fantasy Football team.
Crabtree has scored eight or more touchdowns for three consecutive seasons. In the nine seasons he’s played in the NFL, five of those seasons he’s had over 5 touchdowns. He’s had three seasons with at least 80 receptions. It looks like if you make Crabtree a focal point of the offense in a good situation, good things happen. That’s what the Ravens have created this offseason, a perfect situation for Crabtree to shine.
