Torrey Craig

Fantasy News

  • Torrey Craig - F - Denver Nuggets

    Torrey Craig (left shoulder sprain) returned from a two-game absence and scored 13 points on 5-of-7 shooting with eight boards in 21 minutes on Monday.

    Craig seems to be ready for his normal workload, but he's just a deep-league option on such a stacked and now-healthy Nuggets team.

    Torrey Craig (left shoulder sprain) is available on Saturday night against the Pacers.

    This doesn't have any fantasy impact at all since the Nuggets are at full strength and will only give Craig limited minutes for defensive purposes.

    Torrey Craig (left shoulder sprain) is listed as questionable to play on Saturday vs. the Pacers while Trey Lyles (left hamstring strain) has been removed from the injury report.

    With Denver close to being full-strength neither Craig nor Lyles should be on any fantasy rosters.

    Torrey Craig is out of Thursday's game against the Mavericks with a sprained left shoulder.

    So Craig will miss some time here but with a stronger Nuggets squad ready to roll, it's not a fantasy impact injury in a majority of leagues.

    Torrey Craig is dealing with a sprained left shoulder and is questionable to play on Thursday.

    Craig suffered the injury with 14 seconds left in Tuesday's blowout win. Odds are that he misses some time here, and although his absence won't change much in fantasy leagues it will weaken Denver's wing depth a bit.

    Torrey Craig left Tuesday's game in garbage time and was seen clutching his left elbow after taking a hard fall.

    Craig finished the night with six points, two triples, three assists and a block in 12 minutes. He's faded into the background as Denver has gotten healthy but his absence would take away a nice insurance policy as a wing defender.

  • Torrey Craig - F - Denver Nuggets

    Torrey Craig was spectacular off the Nuggets' bench, recording 22 points (career-high) on 8-of-11 shooting with four rebounds, two assists, two triples, one steal and one block in a 136-122 win over the Rockets on Friday.

    This was a nice line from Craig, who was invisible in eight minutes (zero points, one rebound, one assist, one block) on Wednesday. His opportunities are tied to the health (or lack thereof) of the Nuggets' main starters, so he shined tonight with Gary Harris (groin) out. Craig's a marginal hold due to his volatile production so act accordingly.

    Torrey Craig started in place of the injured Jamal Murray on Saturday night and was able to post 15 points (6-for-13 shooting), six rebounds, a steal and a 3-pointer in 35 minutes.

    Craig led the Nuggets in playing time tonight, and while he's good for deep leagues he is slated for a dip in production once Will Barton and Gary Harris have their minutes restrictions lifted. That could be coming next week.

    Torrey Craig will start in Saturday's game against the 76ers.

    He draws the start here since Jamal Murray will be resting his ankle in tonight's matchup. Craig has a tough task at hand defending Ben Simmons in the majority of this game. If you're in a deep league, feel free to check your waiver wire and see if he's still available.

  • Will Barton - G - Denver Nuggets

    Will Barton has reclaimed his spot in the starting lineup for Friday’s game vs. the Jazz  sending Torrey Craig back to the bench.

    This is a bit curious as coach Mike Malone previously stated that Barton (and Gary Harris) wouldn’t start until their minutes restrictions were lifted, most likely next week. Barton owners aren’t complaining.

    Torrey Craig put up another solid line against the Clippers on Thursday with 14 points on 6-of-8 shooting to go with two 3-pointers, four rebounds, three steals and a block.

    Craig has been posting strong lines ever since Gary Harris sat with a hamstring injury and with the Nuggets playing two more games this week he makes for a strong streaming option. Once Harris returns you can kiss this production goodbye, but for now he's worth a look.

  • Torrey Craig - F - Denver Nuggets

    Torrey Craig scored 11 points on 4-of-9 shooting (including three treys) with a career-high 16 rebounds and four assists over 39 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Heat.

    Craig can play even if he's rough around the edges. There is no reason to get bullish on his fantasy value but remember these moments when his situation improves down the road.

  • Torrey Craig - F - Denver Nuggets

    Torrey Craig played a team-high 39 minutes on Sunday and scored 13 points on 5-of-14 shooting as the Nuggets beat the Raptors.

    He started once again and finally made good use of his minutes. He has struggled this season and can be left on the wire until he proves that he can consistently play well. Monte Morris came off the bench with 12 points, four rebounds and four assists in 38 minutes of action.

  • Torrey Craig - F - Denver Nuggets

    Torrey Craig started for Gary Harris in this one and scored five points on 2-of-2 shooting in 25 minutes in a win over the Magic on Wednesday.

    Despite the fact that the game went to OT, he only saw 25 minutes compared to Malik Beasley's 31 minutes off the bench. Beasley had eight points on 3-of-6 shooting. Neither of them are anything more than a stream when Gary Harris is out, so do not look too far into these performances. Leave them on the wire.

  • Torrey Craig - F - Denver Nuggets

    Torrey Craig drew back into the starting lineup on Saturday night and responded with one of his best games of the year, scoring eight points while adding 10 rebounds, a steal and two blocks in 36 minutes.

    Craig went from DNP to starter and looked motivated tonight. His hustle and defense were noticeable from the jump and he'll need to keep bringing those elements if he wants to stay in the rotation. He's only on the radar in 30-team formats for now but this is the kind of quietly versatile production that deep-leaguers should take note of.
