Crabtree Or Harvin

Crabtree Or Harvin

Harvin sure gets injured a lot.

actually if you go back to 2011 he has a total of 14 catches for 185 yrds and 0 td's. average of 3.5 catches a game for a whopping 46.25 yrds. I'd say the "legion of whom" has done just fine against him over the last 2 seasons.

How many games is that? I'm guessing 4. I don't it's that big of a deal considering he averaged about 50 yards a game until Kaep took over.

they're both very good recievers, i personally think Harvin brings more to the table as far as playmaking abilties and moving the chains. he can do it with short crossing passes, rushing, or 20 yrd patterns. neither guys is going to burn you over the top, they're going to nickle and dime you all the way down the field. but harvin has the abitlity to take a 5 yrd pass and take it to the house, Crabtree does not... And to me that's the difference... Personally i'd love to have either one of them. Crabtree is the better pure reciever, but Harvin is the better all around athlete/football player.
Obviously you don't remember the 5 yard pass Crab turned into a 40 yard TD against NE last year.

Hawkervision.....believing everything .nut tells you without actually looking things up.
I think Crabtree is the full package as a receiver. He may not have elite speed but he has great instincts, vision, hands, route running, and blocking skills. Plus, the chemistry between him and Kap is irreplaceable. Those two can make big things happen and hopefully we can witness that for many years to come.

With that being said, Harvin is a beast as well and the qualities he brings as a receiver is a must need for our receiving core. Elite speed and playmaking ability that can stretch the field opposite of Crabtree I would not pass up on. Which I why I am a full advocate of trading for Josh Gordon or drafting Sammy Watkins, Marqise Lee, or Odell Beckham Jr.

that's a good point, I wish I knew more about bread I wouldn't know a rare bread even if I saw one, I just wanted to be cool
This is actually a good question....they are both very good receivers with potential to be great, both have frequent injury issues. Harvin is a touch more explosive, Crabtree has better hands. Both have had issues regarding attitude, but Crabtree was far longer ago....really is a tough call.

I think I go with Crabtree for one reason only, I value consist contribution over the flash at times and disappear others...boom/ bust style you get with Harvin. It's purely a personal choice and I admit that but I will take 6 catches for 80 yards and a TD that happens more weeks than not, over 2 catches for a buck 20 and a touch one week, nothing the next, 4 for 45, then 2 for 159...etc, etc..

Harvin was pretty consistent last year with his production prior to getting injured. He was carrying my fantasy team week in and week out :)

Haha. Crabtree says, "The Legion Of Whom?"

what's crabtrees numbers against the "legion oh whom" in the two games he's played them?

If you're curious about stats you can do some due diligence. I'll help you out on this one, though. Crabtree averages 670 catches for 2,139 yards (2,039 of those yards come after the catch) per game against Seattle's secondary.

* Wikipedia.

Edit: I should mention that 38 of those catches were made with his feet. 14 of Crabtree's foot catches resulted in two touchdowns or more.
