Description: Penguins center Sidney Crosby has the mumps according to TSN's Bob McKenzie.

Description: Penguins center Sidney Crosby is still feeling ill and there is no word yet what is wrong according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Insight: Crosby underwent tests for the mumps, which has been spreading around the league, and when the tests came back negative, Crosby practiced Friday. Then on Saturday, he sat out again to undergo further tests. Pittsburgh next plays Tampa Bay on Monday and would really like to have Crosby back, along with all fantasy owners, but Sid's status is up in the air.

11/1/2014 11:02:00 PM
Description: Penguins center Sidney Crosby leads the league with 18 points after 10 games this season.
Insight: That's not much of a surprise. Crosby's Penguins have also played fewer games than most teams through Nov. 1, so that makes it a little big more impressive.

10/1/2014 11:30:00 AM
Description: Penguins center Sidney Crosby is the top fantasy option once again in 2014.
Insight: The only other player owners should really consider with the No.1 pick is Alex Ovechkin but that is because Ovechkin provides higher value as a winger than Crosby does as a center. Crosby is the best hockey player in the world and is feeling good after offseason wrist surgery.
 
9/18/2014 1:27:00 PM
Description: Penguins center Sidney Crosby will miss the start of training camp due to an undisclosed injury according to Penguins.nhl.com
Insight: Crosby's injury is apparently not related to his wrist, which he had surgery on this summer. Whatever it is, it is considered minor. The Penguins will be cautious with their captain once training camp begins. No point in pushing Crosby at this point. This should not at all effect Crosby's fantasy draft position.

Description: Pittsburgh center Sidney Crosby handed out two assists in Wednesday's Game 4 victory over New York.
Insight: Crosby had been having a quiet series prior to Wednesday, at least by his standards (one point in three games). The Penguins are in the driver's seat now. They lead the Rangers three games to one with Game 5 Friday night in Pittsburgh.
