Fantasy basketball analysis: Boston Celtics SF/PF Jayson Tatum
The Celtics are coming off another bad loss to the Pelicans on Sunday. Without Kanter and Tatum, Boston ran a very thin rotation, playing Daniel Theis 31 minutes with no bench player seeing over 16 minutes on the court. If this type of rotation stands true on Tuesday, things could be rough again for the Celts.
As for fantasy basketball, Kemba Walker and Jaylen Brown will see a ton of minutes in the back court and soak up the majority of usage and offensive touches. Gordon Hayward is the other beneficiary. But other than those three, it’s hard to like anyone else on the Celtics outside of maybe Marcus Smart, who is streaky and in a bad matchup.
