Craig finished with 18 points (8-10 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 10 rebounds, two blocks, one assist and one steal in 31 minutes during Sunday's 123-120 victory over the Thunder. Craig had arguably the best game of his career in the victory, potentially swinging a number of fantasy leagues in the process. Before we go getting too excited, let's take a breath and examine his previous three games, in which he scored a grand total of 13 points on 5-of-16 shooting. At this point, Craig should be viewed as a streamer, at best.
Craig will start Monday's game against the Knicks. Coming off a massive double-double in Sunday's loss to Brooklyn, Craig was rewarded with his first starting spot since joining Phoenix. A repeat performance Monday isn't likely, but Craig could see heightened production considering Jae Crowder (ankle) and Dario Saric (rest) remain out.
Craig produced 20 points (6-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 6-6 FT), 14 rebounds and a blocked shot across 32 minutes in Sunday's 128-119 loss to the Nets. Craig didn't exactly appear out of nowhere, as he's slowly crept into relevancy this month with an average of 16.1 minutes per game over a 12-game span. Jae Crowder's (ankle) absence provided extra opportunity for the journeyman forward, and he took full advantage. Craig failed to make a significant impact with the Nuggets and did even less during his brief stint with the Bucks, but his performance Sunday was his best stat line as a pro.
Craig scored seven points (3-8 FG, 1-4 3Pt) and grabbed five rebounds over 22 minutes in a loss to Boston on Thursday. Craig's playing time in the loss was just one minute short of his season-high mark set Feb. 8 against Denver. He couldn't get much going offensively, however, as he finished with single-digit points for the fifth straight contest. The fourth-year guard has carved out a steady reserve role since joining the Suns but doesn't have much appeal in fantasy leagues.
Craig posted 14 points (5-6 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, one assist and one steal in 20 minutes during Tuesday's 106-86 win over the Heat. Craig got some extra run during the blowout win and used it to his advantage, setting a new season high in points. He's held a steady role since being dealt to the desert by the Bucks, averaging 6.2 points and 4.1 rebounds in 15.9 minutes per game for the Suns.
