Player Notes

  • Marcus Smart logs 39 minutes in return Monday
    Marcus Smart posted a line of 18 points (7-of-14 FGs, 0-of-2 FTs), three rebounds, seven assists, two steals, and four 3-pointers in Monday's 116-110 win over the Raptors. 

    Advice: After sitting out Sunday's win over the Nets, Smart was back in the starting lineup for the second game of Boston's road back-to-back. With another solid shooting night under his belt, it's safe to say Smart's improved accuracy is no fluke. He entered Monday shooting a career-best 44.9% from the field, and Smart has made 54.7% of his attempts over the last two weeks. While Smart's rebounding and steals numbers have decreased compared to last season, he's shooting considerably better while averaging a career-high 7.7 assists per game. At this rate, he should again finish the season as a top 100 player in 9-cat formats.  NBCSportsEDGE.com 2 minutes ago
  • Jaylen Brown posts 22/8/8 line vs. Raptors Monday
    Jaylen Brown shot 9-of-22 from the field and 3-of-4 from the foul line in Monday's win over the Raptors, scoring 22 points with eight rebounds, eight assists, and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes. 

    Advice: Brown has now scored 22 points or more in 13 consecutive appearances, and he's been rolling recently as far as fantasy value is concerned. Providing 3rd-round per-game value for the season, Brown is ranked 3rd in 9-cat over the last two weeks. With Jayson Tatum ranking 5th during that stretch, it's easy to see why the Celtics have one of the best offenses in recent NBA history. Brown will look to keep his run going Wednesday night in Phoenix.  NBCSportsEDGE.com 7 minutes ago
  • Bogdan Bogdanovic scores 17 with five triples
    Bogdan Bogdanovic found his shot on Monday, finishing with 17 points (6-for-13 FGS), three rebounds, one assist, one steal and five triples in 22 minutes off the bench in a loss to the Thunder.

    Advice: In just his second game of the season, Bogi was able to remind us of why he has been a top-100 asset for the last three seasons. His debut didn’t go well at all, but this game was much better. His minutes will continue to be limited, but he doesn’t need 30 minutes to contribute. Atlanta doesn’t have a ton of shooting this season, so he has the ultimate green light when he’s on the floor. He’s rostered in 53% of leagues, so if he’s available in yours, he’s worth an add.

  • Dejounte Murray posts 24/6/3/2/2 line vs. Thunder
    Dejounte Murray filled up the stat sheet on Monday, contributing 24 points (10-for-21 FGs), six rebounds, three assists, two steals, two blocks and three triples in a loss to the Thunder.

    Advice: With Trae Young back in the lineup, Dejounte's assists went back down, but he was still able to contribute in plenty of other ways. He's still posting top-20 numbers this season, but he's only posted top-50 numbers over the last month. His assists have slowly declined as the Hawks have adjusted to life with both Dejounte and Trae, but he's been able to make up some of that value by hitting a career-high 2.2 triples per game and 3.5 per game over the last two weeks. Nobody expected this type of shooting from him when the Hawks traded for him, so it's been an incredibly nice bonus. NBCSportsEDGE.com 9 minutes ago
  • Jayson Tatum scores 31 PTS with a full stat line
    Jayson Tatum finished Monday's 116-110 win over the Raptors with 31 points (11-of-24 FGs, 4-of-5 FTs), 12 rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block, and five 3-pointers in 39 minutes. 

    Advice: Tatum surpassed the 30-point mark for the 13th time this season on Monday while also extending his double-double streak to four games. He's providing top-5 per-game value in 9-cat formats and has shown no signs of slowing down. The negative for fantasy managers who have Tatum rostered is he'll only play two more times this week: Wednesday in Phoenix and Saturday at Golden State.  NBCSportsEDGE.com 14 minutes ago
