Boston Celtics DFS Spin

Jayson Tatum ended up with a solid line on Sunday, finishing with 29 points (10-for-19 FGs), 11 rebounds, four steals, three triples and nine turnovers in a win over Brooklyn. Tatum started off slow from the floor but ended up shooting well down the stretch. The nine turnovers were ugly, but he did make up for a few of them with four steals. Overall, it was a nice bounce back game for Tatum after really struggling against the Heat. This is more like the Tatum that is in the middle of the MVP race than what we saw on Friday. We'll see if he can keep it up in Toronto on the second night of a back-to-back on Monday.

Toronto Raptors DFS Spin

Pascal Siakam logged 31 minutes in Saturday's 121-108 win over the Magic, accumulating 26 points (9-of-15 FGs, 7-of-7 FTs), eight rebounds, 10 assists, three steals, and one 3-pointer. Siakam notched his eighth double-double of the season on Saturday, with this being his second of the points/assists variety (October 26 vs. Philadelphia). Since returning from a strained groin, Spicy P's point total has increased in his four games played, and he's shot 50% or better from the field in three. Providing 3rd-round per-game value for the season, Siakam's been a top-20 player over the last week. It won't be long until we say that about his season-long value.
