Jae Crowder will start at power forward on Wednesday night.
Derrick Favors heads to the bench against the rangy Heat. He and Crowder have been switching off starting duties all season and both make sense in 12-team leagues depending on what you're looking for. Crowder's a good 9-cat options for threes and steals while Favors is a decent option for the traditional big man stats.

Jae Crowder started on Thursday, scoring 12 points on 3-of-10 shooting with a triple, five rebounds and two steals.
Crowder started tonight because of the matchup and still put up a mediocre line. He wasn't efficient and only logged 26 minutes which means he can be left on the wire. Derrick Favors did well off the bench with 24 points on 10-of-13 shooting to go with 10 boards, a steal and a block. The Rockets bigs just couldn't keep up with Favors tonight and he took advantage. Tonight is a great opportunity to sell high on him.

Jae Crowder is replacing Derrick Favors in the starting lineup against the Rockets on Thursday.
Favors is still active — this looks like a matchup move and both players have relatively low fantasy ceilings. Crowder has been decent lately but he hasn't started in consecutive games this season so there's little reason to be excited about this news.

Jae Crowder put up 19 points on 6-of-15 shooting as the starting power forward on Sunday as the Jazz lost to the Heat.
He started over Derrick Favors, who had five points, seven rebounds, two steals and two blocks off the bench. Crowder added six rebounds, two assists, one steal and three 3-pointers to the box score. Crowder is still a late-round value in 9-cat leagues with intriguing value in points, 3-pointers and steals.

Jae Crowder will draw the start at power forward on Sunday as Derrick Favors moves to the bench.
It's a matchup play as Crowder will be able to guard Nemanja Bjelica on the perimeter. He typically plays more than Favors anyway and is a late-round option in 9-cat leagues. This doesn't change much for Favors, really.

Jae Crowder hit just 2-of-12 shots in 28 minutes off the bench on Friday against the Lakers, scoring five points with three rebounds, one assist, three steals and a block.
The defensive stats help save a bad night and the Jazz simply need other players taking shots. Crowder's efficiency will continue to be an anchor to his value until they can find better playmaking, and he's not a lock for late-round value even if Donovan Mitchell (ribs) misses time. In 9-cat formats he has returned top-130 value on the year.

Jae Crowder scored 16 points on 5-of-14 shooting (2-of-10 3PTs) with five rebounds, one steal and one block in 37 minutes off the bench in Wednesday's loss to the Kings.
Crowder started the second half but that doesn't really matter. He's going to be a late-round guy at best with a 2-3 round advantage in 9-cat formats.

Jae Crowder started the second half over Derrick Favors on Wednesday against the Kings.
He is a top-150 player right now and this sudden change is likely due to the poor play by the Jazz as of late.

Jae Crowder played well on Monday against the Pacers with 14 points, four triples, five boards, four assists and two blocks.
Crowder is a top-150/130 player in 8/9-cat league on the season. He went cold from the field over the last week, hitting under 30 percent of his shots. When Crowder hits 41 percent of his shots his value stays steady.

Jae Crowder scored only six points in Monday's road win, shooting 2-of-9 in 27 minutes while adding six rebounds, a block and a three.
The Grindhouse has a way of messing with role players so you're not going to worry about this game much. Alec Burks put in 10 points but shot just 3-of-12. Stick with Crowder for a few more games and re-evaluate him then, though we're not betting on this one being the start of any sort of slump.

Jae Crowder led all Jazz reserves in scoring on Friday as the Jazz dropped the Celtics 115-123 with 20 points, six boards, four dimes, four 3-pointers, one steal and one blocked shot.
Crowder continues his bounce-back season with this gem. He's still not delivering big nights on a regular basis but he should still be able to improve on his current top-125 value in 9-cat with his needle pointing up.

Jae Crowder went 3-of-11 from the field and 6-of-10 from the line on Monday night, finishing a blowout loss with 12 points, two rebounds, two assists and a steal.
Crowder missed all six of his threes, and his struggles from deep and the charity stripe were representative of Utah's issues overall tonight — the Jazz hit 8-of-31 from the 3-point line and went 27-of-41 from the free throw line as a team. Considering the Raptors only shot 14 free throws all night, it's remarkable that the Jazz got throttled. Crowder should still be deployed in 9-cat formats but might be slowing down from a nice little run.

Jae Crowder (ankle) has been upgraded to available for Monday's game.
Crowder was already probable so this is not anything new. He has been playing well lately and should be owned in all leagues. He's been getting minutes as a small-ball four at the expense of Derrick Favors, but it seems both can hold fantasy value.

Jae Crowder (ankle) is probable for Monday's game.
Crowder has been playing through a minor ankle issue but he'll be fine for tomorrow night. He's been on a nice little run as Utah's primary power forward, even if he isn't starting, and should be owned in all 9-cat formats.
