2019 Fantasy Outlook
Despite having just one season of true NBA experience under his belt, Craig ended up being a key player for a Nuggets team making a push towards the top of the Western Conference last year. Craig and his 6-foot-7 frame were useful on defense, but he also saw his offensive game expand as the season went on, and the swingman ended up shooting an acceptable 32.4 percent from three-point range on 2.5 attempts per game. Craig, who averaged 5.7 points and 3.5 rebounds in 75 appearances last season, might have to fight for a similar role this season. He gained a lot of extra run due to the Nuggets' extensive injuries, especially to Gary Harris and Will Barton, who played in 86 combined games and are roughly 30-minute players when healthy. Plus, Michael Porter Jr. will come into training camp healthy, and his pre-NBA pedigree suggests he's a much more skilled offensive player than Craig. All things considered, the chances of Craig improving his fantasy stock are slim, and he can likely be avoided in all but the deepest of leagues. Read Past Outlooks

Double-double in 35 minutes
FDenver Nuggets
January 24, 2020
Craig contributed 15 points (6-9 FG, 3-6 3Pt), 10 rebounds, two assists and one block in 35 minutes during Friday's 113-106 win over the Pelicans.
ANALYSIS
Craig finished with season highs in scoring, rebounding, threes and minutes, and he continues to draw starts with Paul Millsap (knee) and Jamal Murray (ankle) sidelined. Craig can't be expected to produce such impressive counting stats on anything close to a consistent basis, as this was his first time earning 30-plus minutes thus far this season. Still, he has clearly earned the trust of coach Michael Malone, and Craig could be a decent option in daily leagues heading into Sunday's bout versus the Rockets.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
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.
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.
