Allen Crabbe hit just 2-of-9 shots for four points in Friday’s win, but managed to post six boards, three assists, three blocks and one steal in 33 minutes off the bench.
Crabbe is starting to do things that solid fantasy players do — like putting up value in non-scoring categories when their shot isn’t falling. He has a top 110-120 value to start the year on averages of 10.0 points, 1.2 treys, 2.5 boards, 2.8 assists and 1.0 steals per game. If he can keep it up he’ll cruise into a likely top-100 finish and though he seems a bit iffy at times, he’s a must-own player in 12-team leagues after this start.
