2018 Fantasy Outlook
After playing his first four NBA seasons with Portland, Crabbe was dealt to the Nets prior to the 2017-18 season in what was essentially a salary dump. However, Crabbe ended up being a solid player for the Nets and started 68 of the 75 games he played in. As we've come accustomed to, Crabbe's main impact was as a sharpshooter, helping to open the floor for his teammates and creating instant offense when needed. Crabbe finished the year averaging a career-high 2.7 three-pointers per game, while shooting a respectable 37.8 percent from deep. That percentage was down from 44.4 percent a year prior, but that wasn't overly surprising considering Crabbe's three-point attempts sky-rocketed from 3.8 to 7.1. Overall, Crabbe saw his role on offense grow quite a bit on a team that didn't have nearly the talent that he had previously played with. The wing added 13.2 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.6 assists across 29.3 minutes, all of which were career highs. With D'Angelo Russell entering the season healthy after missing 34 games last season, he's expected to lead the team offensively. That has the potential to take away a shot attempt or two from Crabbe, though his production shouldn't suffer that much. The wing rotation is expected to be very similar with the likes of Crabbe, DeMarre Carroll, Joe Harris and Caris LeVert all mixing in. As a result, look for Crabbe's numbers to remain relatively similar during the upcoming campaign, with his trademark once again being his three-point shooting. Read Past Outlooks

Scores 41 points in 34 minutes

April 10, 2018
Crabbe registered 41 points (12-15 FG, 8-11 3Pt, 9-9 FT), five rebounds, four assists, one steal, and one block across 34 minutes Monday in Brooklyn's win over Chicago.
ANALYSIS
Crabbe posted a career-high 41 points on a stellar shooting night. The fifth-year wing knocked down eight three-pointers, also a career-high, for the third time in his career but his reliance on the three-pointer makes him a boom-or-bust fantasy option. He averages 7.1 three-point attempts on the 2017-18 season, and he has connected on 37.5-percent of those attempts, a respectable clip considering the volume. Crabbe lived beyond-the-arc in his first year with Brooklyn, while he was a much more versatile scorer during his time with Portland.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2014
After a strong 2015-16 campaign, Crabbe received a hefty raise, securing a four-year, $74.8 million extension with the Trail Blazers. He didn't necessarily have the impact one would expect from a player of that salary, but he still posted career highs across the board with averages of 10.7 points, 2.9 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.7 three-pointers across 28.5 minutes. His three-point shooting was particularly beneficial, as he shot 44.4 percent from deep, helping space the floor for playmakers like Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum. That said, the huge contract was largely considered a mistake and the Trail Blazers made that even more clear by trading him to the Nets this offseason in exchange for Andrew Nicholson, who was eventually waived in an effort to reduce the team's luxury tax bill. It was a blatant salary dump, as the Nets were willing to take on a big contract while working through a rebuild. Crabbe should be given every chance to start for the Nets despite having an exact position yet to be determined. Most likely, he'll be the favorite for starting small forward duties, although the versatility of guys like D'Angelo Russell, Jeremy Lin and DeMarre Carroll should mean plenty of time at shooting guard as well. A shallower roster overall and a good chance of locking down a starter's workload should mean a more featured role offensively for Crabbe, which means a boost in Fantasy value. He's already an effective shooter and can always be relied upon for three-point production, so the potential for added responsibility elsewhere could mean a career year for the 25-year-old.
After taking the court just 15 times during his rookie campaign in 2013-14, Crabbe was primarily pressed into duty last season when Nicolas Batum and C.J. McCollum were forced out due to injury. Getting the nod in nine of his 51 games played, Crabbe managed 3.3 points (on 41 percent shooting), 1.4 rebounds, 0.8 assists, and 0.6 three-pointers in 13 minutes per contest. With Batum and Wesley Matthews not around to dominate the wing rotation in the coming season, the door is open for Crabbe to augment his role further after his contract was guaranteed this summer. However, McCollum is expected to start at two-guard, while Al-Farouq Aminu was brought on to cover small forward, leaving Crabbe in competition with Maurice Harkless as members of the Blazers' bench mob.
The 31st pick of the 2013 NBA Draft, Allen Crabbe found no room in the Blazers' wing rotation as a rookie, making 15 mostly garbage-time appearances. His production in six games for Idaho of the NBA's D-League - 16 points (on 41-percent shooting), 6.7 rebounds, 2.0 three-pointers, 1.2 assists, 1.0 steals, and 0.8 blocks in 39 minutes per contest - shed light on the talent that resulted in Pac-12 Player of the Year honors in his final collegiate season at Cal. Yet, in two additional developmental opportunities at the Las Vegas Summer League, Crabbe has done little to suggest that a regular NBA gig is in the cards, averaging 5.2 points, 3.1 boards, and 0.9 assists in 24 minutes across 11 games. Perhaps most concerning was his reticence to shoot from deep this summer, as he clanked all four three-point attempts in his first two games, before ditching the three-point arc entirely in the final three. Heading into Crabbe's second season, the shooting guard is unlikely to procure much, if any, run from the deepest portion of the roster.
