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. Nov 9 - 10:39 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.
Oct 24 - 12:08 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.

Jae Crowder is looking to expand his game beyond being a defensive stopper in 2014-15.

Crowder has made a reputation for himself as one of the better defensive players in the league, but would like to expand his portfolio this season. "I’m trying to make plays on the other end, not just be one-dimensional," Crowder said. "I’m a much better player than just a defensive player...I’m just trying to grow my game and expand my game as much as possible." With Crowder facing a bit of a logjam at small forward with Chandler Parsons, Richard Jefferson, and Al-Farouq Aminu, there isn't much fantasy upside for the 24-year-old.

Jae Crowder could see time at shooting guard, small forward, and power forward with the Mavericks this season.

Crowder has been receiving immense praise from coach Rick Carlisle throughout camp and the preseason. It is still undetermined how the minutes will be distributed among the wing players in Dallas. With Monta Ellis entrenched at shooting guard, and Chandler Parsons and Al-Farouq Aminu at small forward, its not unclear where the minutes will come from for Crowder to have a significant impact.
Oct 9 - 5:26 PM

Coach Rick Carlisle said Jae Crowder has been the best defensive player in camp.

He probably already had his chance with the Mavericks and things aren't looking great after the team picked up Chandler Parsons and Al-Farouq Aminu. Crowder can be ignored in almost all fantasy leagues.
Oct 4 - 5:59 PM

Owner Mark Cuban said Jae Crowder could play more this season.

He squandered a chance for minutes last season and the Mavericks added Al-Farouq Aminu and Chandler Parsons while losing Shawn Marion on the wing this time around. Crowder is a streaky shooter and is not worth drafting in fantasy leagues.
Sep 26 - 2:07 PM

Jae Crowder could fill in as the sixth man for the Mavericks, according to the team's website.

Crowder had some buzz coming into last season, and things didn't exactly work out for him. There are not going to be as many minutes available off the bench with the Mavericks adding depth and youth at the forward and point-guard spots. Crowder isn't worth drafting in most leagues.
Aug 11 - 10:42 AM

Jae Crowder returned from an abdominal strain on Sunday, going scoreless in 16 minutes off the bench vs. OKC.

The backup forward is averaging 4.8 points in 17 minutes per game and he's irrelevant as long as starting SF Shawn Marion is healthy.
Mar 17 - 2:03 AM

Jae Crowder (abdomen) went through practice on Friday.

He had an MRI and the results must have come back negative on his abdominal strain. Crowder's minutes have fallen off and he can't hit jumpers right now, so he's off the fantasy radar while Shawn Marion is healthy.
Mar 14 - 2:11 PM

Jae Crowder (abdominal strain) is not with the Mavericks on their current road trip, but he could join the team before Sunday's game in Oklahoma City.

Crowder had an MRI and while the Mavs have yet to announce the results, coach Rick Carlisle didn't sound concerned. "It’s not serious, that's as much as I know," Carlisle said. "I don’t have any other details." His absence means a few extra minutes for Vince Carter, Wayne Ellington and Shawn Marion, but it won't have a substantial fantasy impact.
Mar 12 - 9:44 AM

Jae Crowder will have an MRI on his abdomen and he will not play against the Warriors on Tuesday.

He's basically fallen out of the rotation now that Wayne Ellington is back and Shawn Marion is healthy. Crowder isn't worth owning in almost any league despite a hot start this season.
Mar 10 - 3:48 PM

Jae Crowder left Sunday's game after aggravating an abdominal strain which has bothered him for the past two weeks.

"Hopefully I’ll be able to play on Tuesday," he said. "The plan is to come in [Monday], get treatment and try to practice, although we won't be doing much on the court." Rick Carlisle said he expects Crowder to be day-to-day and we're calling him questionable for Tuesday's game.
Mar 10 - 1:11 PM

Jae Crowder strained his abdomen during Sunday's game and was unable to return.

He finished with two points and one rebound in seven minutes, but his absence will probably go unremarked in fantasy leagues given his marginal role off the bench. Consider him questionable for Tuesday's road game vs. the Warriors.
Mar 9 - 11:15 PM

The Mavs have officially recalled Joe Crowder and Shane Larkin from the D-League and both will be available to play in Sunday's game vs. the Spurs.

Both Crowder and Larkin are depth guys, and with the Mavericks fully healthy neither is a fantasy option in standard leagues.
