2018 Fantasy Outlook
Undrafted in 2014 after four years at USC Upstate, Craig had been overseas until last year. He piled up an impressive resume while in Australia, winning NBL Defensive Player of the Year, Most Improved Player, and being voted onto the All-NBL Second Team. That skill was evident during Craig’s 15 G-League appearances last season. He averaged 22.9 points, 8.1 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 2.0 blocks and 1.1 steals while shooting 47.7 percent from the field and drilling 2.6 threes per tilt at 38.6 percent. Ultimately, he was able to garner 16.1 minutes per contest in 39 NBA appearances (including five starts), averaging 4.2 points and 3.3 assists. Craig will probably be asked to take on a bigger role this season considering the departure of Wilson Chandler, though may have to fight off the likes of Michael Porter Jr. (assuming he’s healthy) for playing time.

Career-high scoring tally off bench
FDenver Nuggets
February 2, 2019
Craig totaled 22 points (8-11 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block across 34 minutes in the Nuggets' 136-122 win over the Rockets on Friday.
ANALYSIS
The second-year wing's move back to the bench clearly didn't hurt his production whatsoever, as Craig actually accumulated a career-high point tally in the high-scoring win. The 28-year-old had been good for the occasional double-digit scoring contribution while in the starting five, and he's proven capable of offering solid production across the stat sheet when seeing sufficient minutes. Even in a second-unit role, Craig is likely to still be afforded a serviceable allotment of playing time on the majority of nights, preserving his value in deeper formats and as a cost-conscious DFS option.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Craig signed a two-way deal with the Denver Nuggets in the offseason, as he's expected to spend the majority of his season in the G-League this year. In the most recent Summer League, Craig averaged 11.5 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.3 assists in just 22.0 minutes per game as a standout for the Nuggets. Craig has had quite the journey to this point too, as he went undrafted out of USC Upstate back in 2014. Since 2014, Craig has played for teams like the Cairns Taipans, Wellington Saints, Brisbane Bullets and Gold Coast Rollers, with all those teams being in Australia or New Zealand. The accolades were endless for Craig in those leagues, as he earned league MVP, Defensive Player of the Year honors, multiple All-Star appearances and an NBL title in that three-year span. Success wont be as easy in the NBA, but he's worth keeping an eye on to see if he can make yet another jump in his development. On his two-way deal, Craig can spend up to 45 days on the Nuggets active roster.
