Jae Crowder scored 15 points with eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes against the Suns on Thursday.
He's back to being Boston Jae with plenty of treys and with solid usage and minutes in the upper 20s. Crowder hasn't even shot the ball well at just 39.2 percent in his previous March games, so he could get even better. He should be owned in most standard leagues. Mar 16 - 1:15 AM

Jae Crowder scored 14 points on 5-of-8 shooting Tuesday, to go with three 3-pointers, four rebounds, three assists, two steals and one turnover in 24 minutes.

Crowder came in and drained his first three shots in what was a nice bounce-back game following Sunday’s 1-of-11 shooting disaster. The inefficiency has been annoying, but Crowder has been fairly consistent with the points and triples as of late, so he could be someone to consider streaming on Thursday vs. Phoenix.
Mar 13 - 11:38 PM

Jae Crowder shot just 1-of-11 for five points on Sunday, hitting one 3-pointer with four rebounds and one block in 32 minutes.

Crowder operated almost entirely behind the arc offensively, which is part of the reason he shot so poorly. This comes on the heels of a 7-of-12 shooting performance (with six 3-pointers), however, and his true production lies somewhere in the middle of those extremes. He got some time alongside Derrick Favors tonight and coach Quin Snyder seems to love him, so don't sleep on Crowder if you're looking for a free agent forward.
Mar 11 - 7:33 PM

Jae Crowder scored a season-high 22 points with one rebound, three assists, one block, one steal and six 3-pointers against the Grizzlies on Friday.

He has really figured it out again and he's been one of the best backup power forwards in the league since joining Utah. In fact, when he's with the other four starters not named Derrick Favors, that unit has a +31.2 net rating to make them one of the best units in hoops over their 76 minutes. Crowder is worth a long look in standard leagues.
Mar 9 - 11:19 PM

Jae Crowder made 7-of-13 shots to score 16 points on Wednesday, going 2-of-6 from downtown with four rebounds, two assists and zero turnovers in 28 minutes.

Favors has played at least 25 minutes in every game with Utah, and he's dipped into single-digit scoring just once -- Monday's four-point dud vs. the Magic. He's earning minutes at both forward spots and has emerged as the sixth-man for the Jazz, which makes him viable as a steady, low-upside option.
Mar 7 - 9:48 PM

Jae Crowder hit just 1-of-9 shots for four points and one rebound in 28 minutes of Monday's win over the Magic.

Crowder had scored in double figures in nine straight games before tonight's disaster and he had a big opportunity with Derrick Favors being a late scratch due to neck spasms. He didn't answer the call, but should bounce back in his next game. Crowder was playing well enough to be owned before this disappearing act, so hanging onto him might be the way to go for now.
Mar 6 - 12:10 AM

Jae Crowder ended up with 15 points over 29 minutes in Friday's 116-108 victory against the visiting Timberwolves.

Crowder connected on 6-of-15 from the field, including 3-of-9 from behind the 3-point line, and he added three rebounds with an assist and just two turnovers. He has regained his fantasy value since landing in Salt Lake City after his trade from the Cavs. He is working on a season-high eight-game streak with double-digit point totals, including each of his seven outings as a member of the Jazz.
Mar 3 - 3:01 AM

Jae Crowder scored 12 points with six rebounds, five assists, one block and two triples in 30 minutes vs. the Rockets on Tuesday.

The counting stats were nice in addition to the workload, but Crowder ruined it by hitting just 4-of-15 shots and 2-of-4 free throws. He has seen an uptick in value during his short time with the Jazz, but he's still more of a deep-league asset for the time being because he's really been just a 3-category player (points, rebounds and 3s).
Feb 27 - 12:08 AM

Jazz GM Dennis Lindsey is optimistic that Jae Crowder will find his form in Utah.

"He’s really versatile defensively and can play really two through four with switches and physicality," Lindsey said. "His build is quite obvious and the systems that he’s played in with Dallas, Boston and Cleveland, we’ve seen enough to think that he can mesh very well in how we play." He had 15 points, five rebounds, three assists, three 3-pointers and one steal in 29 minutes on Sunday and gets a fresh start after a disappointing stint in Cleveland. Joe Ingles and Royce O'Neale are playing well, but Crowder's ability to play multiple positions should help him carve out a nice role. We'll see if he can keep it going.
Feb 12 - 9:26 AM

Jae Crowder had 15 points, five rebounds, three assists, three 3-pointers and one steal in 29 minutes during his Jazz debut on Sunday.

Crowder was a disappointment in Cleveland this season, so the change of scenery should be viewed as a positive for fantasy purposes. This was the seventh time all season he's reached the 15-point plateau and he looks like a great fit in Utah. "I truly believe this will work well," Crowder said before the game. "Right when I came in the door ... I felt this could be home for a long time." Most owners can just watch his role prior to the All-Star break, but he's worth grabbing in deeper leagues.
Feb 11 - 11:53 PM

Jae Crowder will play for the Jazz on Sunday vs. Portland.

It's unclear where he's going to fit in for this rotation, especially with the Jazz playing the best ball in the NBA these days. Crowder was a a major letdown in Cleveland and maybe he'll be better in Utah, but leave him on the wire for now.
Feb 10 - 6:20 PM

Jae Crowder will not play on Friday vs. Charlotte.

All the players involved in the three-team trade have to pass physicals before anyone can play, so Crowder won't debut until Sunday vs. the Blazers. Keep an eye on him, but Crowder does have a lot of competition in Royce O'Neale and Joe Ingles.
Feb 9 - 8:41 PM

Jae Crowder is "highly unlikely" to play Friday vs. the Hornets.

This was expected, as all players involved in the three-team megadeal need to pass physicals before the trade is officially completed. Crower had seen his fantasy value hit rock bottom in Cleveland, so there is a chance it increases in Utah. However, he will have to compete for minutes with Joe Ingles, Royce O'Neale and Derrick Favors.
Feb 9 - 1:00 PM

Jae Crowder and Derrick Rose have been traded to the Jazz.

The Jazz sent Joe Johnson to Sacramento and Rodney Hood to the Cavaliers, so Crowder does land in a nice spot. Crowder will likely see time at the 3 and 4 in Utah, competing with the likes of Joe Ingles, Royce O'Neale and Derrick Favors. He was terrible in Cleveland, but maybe he benefits from a fresh start. He's on the radar as a pickup, but it's no guarantee that he ever returns to the form he had in Boston.

Jae Crowder didn't do much through 25 minutes of play on Saturday, finishing with eight points, two 3-pointers, two assists, one rebound and one turnover in a blowout loss to the Rockets.

It looks like Kevin Love’s minutes will be divvied up between Crowder, Channing Frye and Jeff Green, and that three-way timeshare isn’t really great news for anyone. Frye finished with three points, seven boards, one steal and one turnover in 18 minutes off the bench, and Green ended his evening with six points, four boards, two dimes and one turnover in 21 minutes.
