Fantasy Impact:

Crawford fills a scoring need for the Nets and will look to tap into his "bag" of experience to contribute valuable minutes as part of the rotation. Although he is forty, his "body" of work across his career shows an upside that exceeds the downside of his participation. Even though his production decreased considerably last season, in April, Crawford averaged 32.3 minutes of playing time, 31.3 points, 2.8 rebounds, 5.8 Assists, and 1.3 steals, all while shooting 55.1 percent from the floor and 50 percent from beyond the arc. Even though his performance was only across four games and heavily impacted by his 51-point outing against Dallas, it still shows the potential value of Crawford's contribution to the team. With a new start, a new team, and a unique environment in which there is a concerted effort to leverage his skill set, he could be a steal for deep-league play. Crawford also has the potential to be a low-risk high-reward asset in other league formats, as a "dart-throw" salary saver come game time. Taking a wait-and-see approach would be heavily advised in this instance.
