Boston Celtics DFS Spin

Jayson Tatum made a triumphant return to action on Monday, hitting 10-of-21 shots and three 3-pointers for 24 points, four rebounds, five assists and a block in a 119-103 win over the Bulls. Tatum hadn't played since Jan. 8 and missed five straight games, and eight if you add in the three postponements that happened while he was in the health and safety protocols. The good news is that he's back and the Celtics are going to have a nice second-half schedule as they make up for lost games. Tatum was on a minutes watch tonight but you couldn't really tell, as he still played 31 of them. The Celtics have two more games this week on Wednesday and Saturday, so Tatum should be good to go going forward.

San Antonio Spurs DFS Spin

DeMar DeRozan hit 3-of-7 shots, 0-of-1 3-pointers, and 3-of-4 free throws for nine points, eight assists, three rebounds, and one steal with two turnovers in a win over the Wizards. DeRozan finished with his third-lowest point total of the season, and aside from eight assists, didn't contribute much else. He spent much of the night in foul trouble, logging five in 27 minutes. DeRozan's put together a really nice fantasy season, ranking No. 30 in 9-cat leagues, but this was a night to forget.
