Jae Crowder led NBA PF's in wide open threes last year, but only hit on 35.4 percent of them.
Crowder was able to net 2.1 treys per game this season, but it came at the expense of sub-par shooting from the field. Crowder is just a .339 percent shooter from 3-point land for his career, and he'll need to improve his stroke if he wants to creep back closer to top-100 value. There is potential for a bigger role next season as Ricky Rubio, and possibly Derrick Favors become free agents this offseason.

Jae Crowder finally had a strong night offensively in Monday's Game 4 with 23 points on 8-of-13 shooting to go with four rebounds, an assist, two steals and three 3-pointers.
Crowder had 18 first half points which would have been the most he's scored in any game this series. He was on fire to start the first period and his energy levels were much higher tonight. The Jazz finally got a strong game out of Crowder on both ends of the floor and he'll have to keep nailing shots for the Jazz to drag out this series.

Jae Crowder moved into the starting five on Saturday night but was fairly quiet with five points, five rebounds, two steals and a triple in 24 minutes.
Crowder's a better fit for this series than Derrick Favors but it didn't lead to a ton of extra work tonight. The Jazz turned to Royce O'Neale for 29 minutes (five points, a steal, a block and a 3-pointer) and Georges Niang for 17 minutes (eight points, seven rebounds, two threes) but might be out of answers with the team dropping into a 0-3 hole on a night where James Harden shot 3-of-20. If you're missing that opportunity, tweaking the starting lineup or forward mix will only take you so far.

Jae Crowder will be starting at Power Forward over Derrick Favors in Saturday's game vs the Rockets.
With Coach Quin Snyder looking to avoid a 3-0 hole, they're hoping that Jae Crowder will be the jolt they need in the starting lineup as they hope to contain the fury of the Rockets in tonight's bout.

Jae Crowder started at power forward for the Jazz on Wednesday and delivered 17 points on 5-of-8 shooting with three rebounds, two assists, four 3s and two blocks in just 16 minutes.
Crowder ends 2018-19 on the fringes of standard-league value with top-170/165 value in 8/9-cat per-game value on averages of 11.9 points, 2.2 threes, 4.8 rebounds and 0.8 steals per game on .398 shooting. He played 80 games, seeing minutes at both forward positions and saw solid usage as a 3-point threat off the bench on a nightly basis.

Jae Crowder (quad) played in Sunday's loss to the Lakers, scoring 11 points on 4-of-12 shooting (1-of-6 3PTs) with six rebounds and two assists in 23 minutes.
The Jazz are all but locked into the No. 5 seed and Crowder seems like a logical guy to get some rest. Georges Niang scored 16 points with two rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and one three in 27 minutes, so he could be a logical beneficiary if everybody rests, and Thabo Sefolosha nabbed five steals to go with 13 points, four rebounds, two assists and three treys in 25 minutes. Niang seems like a better bet than Sefolosha, but only because Sefolosha has struggled so much and Niang has the young legs.

Jae Crowder (quad) is expected to play in Sunday night's game against the Lakers.
Crowder is an integral part of the Jazz rotation and is expected to start in place of Derrick Favors. Feel free to use Crowder for 3's and points if that's what you need to close out the year.

Jae Crowder (right hamstring soreness) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Lakers.
Crowder is a reliable streaming option if your fantasy team is lacking some rebounds, threes and some steals. Other than that, feel free to leave him on the wire if you're already confident with your lineup.

Jae Crowder (right hamstring tightness) logged 17 minutes in Friday's blowout win over the Kings, scoring seven points on 2-of-10 shooting (1-of-7 3PTs) with three rebounds and one assist.
This game was over right at the tip so it's hard to say where Crowder would have been had it been an actual contest. How much he gets used down the stretch will likely come down to whether the Jazz go on an island in the seeding chase.
April 5, 2019, 8:12 pmRicky Rubio - G - Utah Jazz
Ricky Rubio (right hamstring tightness) and Jae Crowder (right quad contusion) will play on Friday vs. the Kings while Raul Neto (ankle soreness) will not.
It’s a little surprising to see Rubio active considering his previous hamstring issues but there it is. Both he and Crowder can be deployed in season-long leagues.

Jae Crowder (right thigh contusion) is probable for Friday's game against the Kings.
Crowder was unable to play on Wednesday after initially being listed as probable, but considering that game was against the Suns it's probably safe to declare that somewhat of a precautionary absence. He's fine to plug into lineups tomorrow if you need some threes and rebounds with a shot at some steals as well.

Jae Crowder (right thigh contusion) has been ruled for Wednesday's game vs. the Suns.
This makes Utah's front court glaringly thin with Derrick Favors (back) out for this one as well. Royce O'Neale is going to hear his number called a lot tonight, and could be a sneaky DFS play.

The Jazz are listing Jae Crowder (right quad contusion) as probable to play the Suns on Wednesday.
Crowder is going to be in a favorable spot with Derrick Favors out again, and makes for a decent streaming option.

Jae Crowder went scoreless in 25 minutes, but added five rebounds to his line on Monday against the Hornets.
Crowder started in place of Derrick Favors (back), but left the game with a right quad contusion and didn't return while Thabo Sefolosha (23 minutes, 14 points on 5-of-6 shooting with three rebounds, two steals and four triples) picked up the slack. If Crowder were to miss time, Sefolosha makes for a decent streamer in his place.

Jae Crowder stepped up in the wake of Derrick Favors' back injury on Friday, coming off the bench for 18 points on 6-of-7 shooting, three rebounds, two assists, a steal, two blocks and four 3-pointers in 28 minutes of action.
Favors was unable to play in the second half and Crowder started the third quarter at power forward. His ceiling will depend on Favors' health, but Crowder has the looks of a decent pickup if you need threes and a defensive stat or two. Unfortunately this was Utah's final game of the week, so the opportunity might not mean much for fantasy owners. Thabo Sefolosha was able to play 14 minutes while Ekpe Udoh put up four points, three rebounds and a block in nine minutes as a result of the extra openings in the frontcourt.
