Allen Crabbe scored 17 points on 7-of-15 shooting with five rebounds, one assist, two steals and one triple in 33 minutes off the bench against the Bulls on Monday.
He's now scored 15+ points in three straight games (the first time in his career) and his minutes have been quietly trending up. Crabbe doesn't do much besides scoring and hitting triples, so he's more of a deep-league asset while Portland is healthy. Dec 5 - 11:44 PM

Allen Crabbe scored 16 points with three rebounds and four 3-pointers against the Heat on Saturday.

He's been whisper quiet for most of the season due to only a 14.0 usage rate on the season. Crabbe is coming off a 15-point game on Wednesday, but he just isn't adding anything of note in the non-scoring categories on top of the low usage rate.
Dec 4 - 1:31 AM

Allen Crabbe was quiet in 29 minutes off the bench on Sunday, scoring six points with two 3-pointers, five rebounds and one steal.

Crabbe started the last time Portland faced the Rockets, beginning the game as James Harden's primary defender, but tonight that honor went to Moe Harkless. The upside is that he made 2-of-3 shots from deep after coming in with a career-worst 33.8 percent mark from downtown. He's getting plenty of easy looks, so eventually that number should trend up.
Nov 28 - 12:17 AM

Allen Crabbe scored 14 points on 5-of-10 shooting Sunday, to go with two boards and four 3-pointers in 30 minutes.

Crabbe is averaging a career-high 29.2 minutes per game this season, but unfortunately, he's not done much with the increased opportunity owning averages of 9.5 points, 1.4 triples and not much else on 45.6 percent shooting. He's basically nothing more than a 3-point specialist in deep leagues.
Nov 20 - 7:02 PM

Allen Crabbe came off the bench on Friday vs. the Pelicans, scoring nine points on 3-of-6 shooting with two rebounds and one block in 27 minutes.

The Blazers started Ed Davis to match up with Anthony Davis, but it's possible Crabbe could be back in the starting lineup on Sunday vs. the Nets with Al-Farouq Aminu (calf) still out. However, Crabbe has been a hit-or-miss option this season and is a low-end player in standard leagues.
Nov 18 - 11:37 PM

Allen Crabbe started at small forward for the Blazers on Thursday and hit just 1-of-5 shots and a 3-pointer for five points and one steal. He also suffered a knee injury, but was able to return and play through it.

We'll have to see if Crabbe sticks in the starting five while Al-Farouq Aminu is out with his calf injury. Crabbe's been up and down all season and has scored 5, 15, 4, 16 and 9 points in each of his last five games. He's averaging 9.8 points, 3.2 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 0.6 steals, 0.4 blocks and 1.4 3-pointers over that stretch, and even if he continues to start, a player like Moe Harkless looks like a better pickup if available. Crabbe replaced struggling Meyers Leonard in the starting five tonight and owners should check on the status of his knee on Friday.
Nov 17 - 10:27 PM

Allen Crabbe will start against the Rockets on Thursday.

The Blazers will go with their smaller lineup and it's possible Crabbe starts out on James Harden. Crabbe should be looking at minutes around 30 and could have a good game in this favorable matchup. Meyers Leonard will move to the bench tonight.
Nov 17 - 7:56 PM

Allen Crabbe came off the bench and hit 6-of-12 shots and three 3-pointers for 15 points, four rebounds, a steal and a block in 33 minutes of Tuesday's ugly 113-88 loss to the Bulls.

His 33 minutes were tied with C.J. McCollum for second-most on the team tonight behind Damian Lillard, and he bounced back from a bad game on Sunday. He's been all over the place this season, and probably doesn't deserve a starting spot in most season-long leagues. But if you pick him on the right night in DFS, he can be a difference maker, whether it be good or bad.
Nov 16 - 12:36 AM

Allen Crabbe played 37 minutes against the Kings on Friday with 16 points, seven rebounds, four assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

He played 22.3 minutes after half, including all of the five minutes in overtime. Al-Farouq Aminu (calf) is going to miss at least the next two weeks and coach Terry Stotts trusts Crabbe for hitting open shots and bring defense to the perimeter. Stotts does mix it up a bit, but he's worth owning while Aminu is out. For DFS, just remember, the smaller the opponent is from 1-4 in their rotation, the more likely it is Crabbe puts up numbers.
Nov 12 - 2:25 AM

Allen Crabbe is listed as the starter and Moe Harkless is listed at power forward in the game notes for Wednesday against the Clippers.

This is pretty close to meaningless because coach Terry Stotts makes last-second tweaks to his starting unit perhaps more than any coach in the NBA. That said, this lineup does make sense and it is what the Blazers used for a team-high 14 minutes on Tuesday -- the next most-used lineup was at five minutes. Both Crabbe and Evan Turner should see some bumps as they handle most of the small forward minutes.
Nov 9 - 4:02 PM

Allen Crabbe played 33 minutes against the Mavs on Friday with four points, six rebounds, three assists, three steals, one block and three turnovers.

He is playing some terrific defense and the minutes are going to be there for Crabbe. He's not going to have a monster season with how the shot distribution goes and based on Crabbe's 14.0 usage rate this year. He's a solid low-end hold in standard leagues.
Nov 5 - 1:25 AM

Allen Crabbe is dealing with an injured finger from the Golden State game on Tuesday.

Crabbe had his right hand wrapped on Thursday, but said he expects to play through an injury to his right ring finger. While the presence of Evan Turner caps Crabbe's value a tad, the 24-year-old is worth a look in standard fantasy leagues.
Nov 3 - 1:50 PM

Allen Crabbe played 37 minutes against the Suns in an overtime loss on Wednesday, scoring 14 points with one rebound, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

This was a small-ball special tonight with both teams avoiding two-big lineups for most of the second half. Crabbe has played in at least 29 minutes for four of his five games with the exception coming in a 20-minute effort from Tuesday's blowout against the Warriors. Crabbe is hanging around the top 100 for standard leagues and should be in that neighborhood going forward. He likely won't be a difference maker, but he's worth a look in standard leagues.
Nov 3 - 1:37 AM

Allen Crabbe hit 3-of-7 shots and finished with 10 points and four rebounds in 32 minutes in Thursday's 114-106 loss to the Clippers.

Crabbe had 18 points in Tuesday's opener and the minutes were there tonight. If you're holding a guy like Evan Turner and want to drop him for Crabbe, it makes a ton of sense right now. Crabbe wasn't great tonight, but the minutes are there, his confidence is on the rise, and he's going to be a key cog in the Blazers' rotation all season long.
Oct 28 - 2:04 AM

Allen Crabbe scored 18 points off the bench on Tuesday vs. Utah, hitting 6-of-10 from the field and 4-of-5 from beyond the arc.

He had the hot hand tonight and the Blazers rolled with him down the stretch. Crabbe added three rebounds and three assists, and he also saw more minutes (29) than starting small forward Moe Harkless (22) and Evan Turner (26). He's going to be hard to trust with so many mouths to feed on Portland's deep roster, but Crabbe has some serious talent and is worth putting on your radar.
