Jae Crowder had another bad game against the Clippers on Monday with no points, two rebounds and two turnovers in 13 minutes
His inconsistency is arguably his defining characteristic as an NBA player. Crowder was the talk of the fantasy town last Monday with his 22-point game, but he's fizzled out since. There's a decent chance he's lost his starting job and is not worth owning in most leagues. Jan 19 - 6:07 PM

Jae Crowder had another bad game on Friday against the Bulls with two points, three assists and one steal in 21 minutes.

He had a couple nice games, but is back to his underwhelming ways. Crowder is just not going to be a reliable option in most leagues, so he's going to be a popular cut candidate after this one, which is obviously justified.

Jae Crowder couldn't build off his career night against the Hawks on Wednesday with seven points, two rebounds and one turnover in 20 minutes.

He's known for his inconsistency and this dud should surprise nobody. Crowder does have a multi-faceted game to his fantasy value, but the peaks and valleys will likely annoy his fantasy owners more than they thought when they picked him up. He's a fringe guy to own in standard leagues and is far from a must-own guy.

Jae Crowder was on fire against the Pelicans on Monday, making 9-of-14 from the field for a career-high 22 points with three rebounds, three assists, four steals, two blocks, two 3-pointers and no turnovers in 36 minutes.

He made both free throws to give him a superb nine-category line. Crowder has been one of the streakier esoteric guys in the league, he doesn't fill the stat sheet much, and was making just 44.4 percent from the field on the season before tonight. That said, this is a massive line and maybe coach Brad Stevens knows how to use him better than his other coaches. He's not a must-grab or anything, but he's certainly worth a look if you're not too attached to the guy you'd drop.

Jae Crowder was quiet in his second start as a Celtic during a 109-96 loss in Toronto, scoring seven points on 3-of-5 from the field and 1-of-4 from the line with three rebounds, two assists and one block.

He played 22 minutes and this is just another reminder that being a starter doesn't necessarily yield fantasy value. Crowder has the ability to get hot, but he's not worth owning in most leagues.
Jan 10 - 11:38 PM

Jae Crowder will continue to start at small forward for the Celtics on Saturday according to coach Brad Stevens.

"He gives us a physical presence at the 3," Stevens said. "This is a tough, hard-nosed team to play against." While this is great news for those of you who took a flier on Crowder, the real story here is that Evan Turner will continue to run the point with Marcus Smart coming off the bench. There is still no word as to whether or not this is permanent, but it is definitely something that we will monitor closely.
Jan 10 - 6:07 PM

Jae Crowder made his first start as a Celtic on Friday with 11 points, seven rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes.

He's likely going to remain in the starting lineup with Jeff Green now in Memphis. Crowder is a very streaky player, but he's capable of putting up some well-rounded stat lines. He's not quite worth a grab in standard leagues just yet, especially because the Celtics will likely bring James Young along more.
Jan 9 - 10:32 PM

Jae Crowder will start on Friday night.

It'll be Evan Turner as the starter at the point. Crowder is still likely just going to see minutes in the 20s while a host of others will pick up minutes.
Jan 9 - 6:57 PM

Jae Crowder made his Celtics debut on Sunday, going scoreless with two rebounds and one assist in seven minutes off the bench.

Crowder looks like Jeff Green's backup at SF by default. Green is averaging 34 minutes per game this year, however, leaving Crowder with a fantasy-hostile 14 minutes off the bench, and the eventual return of rookie James Young (shoulder) is another threat to Crowder's role.

Jae Crowder will be available to play on Sunday vs. the Heat.

The Celtics were reportedly adamant that he would have to be part of the Rajon Rondo deal, so Crowder could eventually have a sizeable role in the rotation. However, unless Jeff Green is also traded in the near future, Crowder won't see a large enough role to matter in most leagues.

Jae Crowder will be inactive for Friday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

He wouldn't play much even if he was available, and he can remain on the waiver wire in most leagues. However, with the Celtics obviously going into a full rebuild, Crowder's name will be one to watch if Jeff Green is traded at some point this season.

Joe Crowder will be sent to Boston as part of the Rajon Rondo deal.

He's going to fight for reserve minutes with Evan Turner, and the trade to Boston doesn't do much for his value. Unless Jeff Green is traded, he won't be worth owning in standard leagues.
Thu, Dec 18, 2014 06:13:00 PM

Jae Crowder scored 15 points in 12 minutes off of the bench for Dallas on Sunday.

He added one board, one assist, and two 3-pointers in limited playing time so he made the most of his minutes. It was easily the best game of the season for him, but we would definitely need to see another game like this before recommending him in any league.
Sun, Nov 9, 2014 10:39:00 PM

Jae Crowder scored 14 points against the Pelicans on Thursday with seven rebounds, two assists and one steal.

He shot just 6-of-15 from the field and will come off the bench for the Mavericks. He will need a lot of things to happen to have fantasy value this season.
Fri, Oct 24, 2014 12:08:00 AM

Coach Rick Carlisle said Jae Crowder will get a look as the third-string point guard on Saturday.

The Mavericks are resting their team, so Crowder is behind Gal Mekel and Doron Lamb. This probably isn't going to end well.
