Jae Crowder connected on 8-of-13 from the field to finish with 25 points, six rebounds, two steals, two blocked shots and an assist in 36 minutes Sunday against the Heat.
Crowder has been a big part of Boston's resurgence, as they pulled into a tie with the Cleveland Cavaliers atop the Eastern Conference standings. The former Marquette star, who was drafted, ironically, by the Cavs in the second round in 2012, is averaging 17.7 points, 8.0 rebounds and 1.2 steals per game over his past six outings.

Jae Crowder made 3-of-13 from the field for 15 points with seven rebounds, four assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes against the 76ers on Sunday.

He had a tougher time today against Robert Covington and Dario Saric than he did against the Nets on Friday. It was almost weird to see Crowder carry the offensive load on the perimeter late, so clearly the Celtics missed Isaiah Thomas. Crowder puts up strong fantasy value even without much offensive output, so keep him going.

Jae Crowder saved the day during a 98-95 win at Brooklyn on Friday, scoring 24 points with 12 rebounds, one assist, one steal and four 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

With Isaiah Thomas (knee) out, it was Crowder picking up the offensive slack in a very favorable matchup for season highs in points and boards. He was coming in cold on offense with five consecutive games of single-digit scoring, but nothing can cure a slump quite like the Nets. Crowder continues to add stats in multiple areas, which has made him a fifth-round player on the season. Expect him to have a similar finish. With Thomas out again on Sunday, Crowder could have another big game in Philly.
Mar 18 - 12:28 AM

Jae Crowder had another brutal shooting night during Wednesday's home win, going 1-of-8 from the field for seven points in 28 minutes.

Crowder made one 3-pointer with four rebounds and one block, while making all four of his freebies. He's in a horrible slump right now, shooting 24.4 percent in his past five games, and owners have to seriously think about benching him in roto leagues until he gets back on track.
Mar 15 - 11:35 PM

Jae Crowder hauled in 10 rebounds during Sunday's blowout win over the Bulls, adding five points, three dimes, one steal, one 3-pointer and one turnover in 25 minutes.

Crowder was in the top-15 in steals last season at 1.7 a night, but this year, he’s only managed to average 1.0 steal a game which has dropped him to a top-50 evaluation on the year. He is, however, hitting career-highs in boards (5.6) and triples (2.2), but as long as his steals numbers remain relatively low, it’ll be tough for him to climb much further up the rankings.
Mar 12 - 6:42 PM

Jae Crowder finished with nine points, eight rebounds and two assists in Monday's loss against the Clippers.

Crowder misfired on 10 of his 13 field-goal attempts for the shorthanded Celtics. With Al Horford (elbow) and Jonas Jerebko (flu) out, and Kelly Olynyk in foul trouble, Crowder actually was forced to play some center against DeAndre Jordan. That didn't end well.
Mar 7 - 1:42 AM

Jae Crowder recorded his fifth double-double of the season on Sunday with 16 points, 10 rebounds, two 3-pointers and one assist in 33 minutes.

Interestingly, three of Crowder's double-doubles have come in the past five games. Al Horford (elbow) was out tonight, which opened up some extra boards, but it's clear that Crowder has made rebounding an emphasis since the All-Star break. Better yet, his prolonged shooting slump appears to have ended -- in three March games he's a combined 15-of-26 from the field (57.8 percent).
Mar 5 - 8:14 PM

Jae Crowder bounced back on Wednesday with 17 points, 10 rebounds, two assists and one steal in 33 minutes vs. LeBron and the visiting Cavs.

Crowder went 5-of-10 from the field and 4-of-4 from the line tonight, with three 3-pointers, to round out an excellent roto line. He's been struggling lately with diminished supporting stats and awful 38.0 percent shooting in his previous five games, so this is sweet relief for his fantasy owners.
Mar 2 - 12:33 AM

Jae Crowder hit just 2-of-9 shots and a 3-pointer for six points, four rebounds and a block in Monday's 114-98 loss to the Hawks.

He had a seven-point, three-rebound dud on Feb. 16, then played very well in his next two games before tonight's disaster. He's been a bit inconsistent this season, but should be poised to bounce back against the Cavaliers on Wednesday night.
Feb 27 - 11:10 PM

Jae Crowder finished with 14 points, 11 rebounds, five assists and a steal over 33 minutes in Sunday's victory against the Pistons.

Crowder struggled slightly from the floor but still ended up with a double-double thanks to seven makes on nine free-throw attempts. He has really found a home in Beantown over the past couple of seasons, and his usage is at an all-time high with over 32 minutes per game. Crowder is also hitting more than two 3-pointers per game, and his assists and rebounds per outing are also a career best.
Feb 26 - 9:01 PM

Jae Crowder scored 19 points with four rebounds, one assist and four 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Raptors on Friday.

He has one of the best contracts in the NBA and it's easy to see why the Celtics don't want to give him up in a trade. On top of his terrific defense, Crowder is having by far his most efficient season as a pro, turning in a 62.4 true shooting percentage. Crowder has fourth-round value in standard leagues and shows no signs of slowing down.
Feb 24 - 11:20 PM

The Celtics are reportedly unwilling to include Jae Crowder in the Jimmy Butler trade talks.

"That's I think the main sticking point there is that he just does not want to give up Jae Crowder in the deal," David Aldridge said. "And that's the guy that Chicago's insisting on right now in any package for Jimmy Butler." The Celtics appear reluctant to include anything of any real value in the Butler trade, which is what makes a deadline deal for Butler seem unlikely. Crowder is on the books through 2020 for a bargain discount of just $28.2 million, so it's understandable why Boston is reluctant to part ways with their defensive stalwart.

Jae Crowder (personal) returned on Monday with 10 points, four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block vs. the Mavericks.

Crowder hit 3-of-9 shots with two 3-pointers, and he might have played more minutes had he not fouled out for the second time this season. He's flirting with early-round value in roto leagues and has only missed two games since mid-November, so his owners should feel very confident heading into the break.
Feb 14 - 1:39 AM

Jae Crowder (personal) will return on Monday vs. the Mavericks.

He will be returning from a two-game absence, but Crowder said he felt like he was away from the team for a couple weeks. With Jaylen Brown (hip) out the next three games, Crowder should immediately step into his usual role in the starting lineup and can be plugged back into fantasy lineups. Marcus Smart loses some value with Crowder back.
Feb 13 - 12:13 PM

Jae Crowder (personal) will not play Saturday vs. Utah.

Crowder also missed Thursday's game due to personal reasons, as he is dealing with a family issue in Texas. Jaylen Brown played 33 minutes on Thursday and finished with 14 points, seven rebounds and two assists. Terry Rozier played 25 minutes off the bench and tallied 11 points, four rebounds and five assists. Gerald Green scored 11 points in 18 minutes. Look for those three to see a similar allotment of minutes with Crowder out Saturday as well.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Isaiah Thomas also benefits in this situation. According to our CourtIQ tool, when both Crowder and Avery Bradley are off, Thomas’ usage increases by 4.6% to 40.4%. He averages 35.9 points per 36 minutes, which is a solid 4.8-point lift above his normal rate this season. Of course, he has a difficult matchup with Utah, but we’re projecting low ownership for Thomas across the industry, making him an interesting contrarian tournament option.
