Boston Celtics DFS Spin
Jayson Tatum struggled with his shot on Sunday and finished with 16 points (3-for-16 FGs), seven rebounds, three assists, two steals, two blocks and a 3-pointer in a win over Memphis. Over his past eight games, Tatum has flip flopped between shooting worse than 40% from the floor and better than 40%. That has resulted in multiple awful nights shooting the ball, and this was his worst percentage of the season. Luckily, he's the type of player that is still able to be productive even when his shot isn't going. While he hasn't been able to provide top ten value over the past two weeks like he has this season, he has still been a second rounder during that stretch. Even off nights won't stop him from being an excellent fantasy player.
Milwaukee Bucks DFS Spin
Giannis Antetokounmpo led the Bucks with 35 points (13-for-25 FGs), nine rebounds, six assists, two steals and a 3-pointer in a 119-106 win over the Clippers on Friday. Giannis has been dealing with soreness in his right knee for a little while now, but it hasn't slowed him down one bit. His double-double streak ended in this game, but he has scored at least 24 in every game since he returned from a short absence due soreness in his left knee. His free throw numbers weren't awful in this game (8-for-11), but they have limited his value throughout the season. The Bucks have won 10 straight and sit a game behind the Celtics for first in the East. Boston plays the Grizzlies on Sunday, but Milwaukee doesn't play again until the teams square off on Tuesday.
