Boston Celtics DFS Spin

Jayson Tatum dominated the Hawks with 34 points (12-for-25 FGs), 15 rebounds, six assists, one block and five 3-pointers in a 134-125 win on Saturday. Tatum was unstoppable in this game, providing everything Boston needed to withstand the late run and win the game. He has been a top ten player in fantasy this season, but his value has been down to third round production over the past two weeks due to poor free throw shooting. However, he has scored at least 30 in his last three games and in four of his last five. He'll continue to provide excellent value the rest of the way, and his free throw shooting should be closer to his season percentage of 85.9 than the 78.1% he had shot over his previous four games.

Houston Rockets DFS Spin

Tari Eason provided a spark off the bench on Saturday with 12 points (4-for-6 FGs), four rebounds, one assist, one steal and four 3-pointers against the Bulls. Eason has been able to get plenty of defensive stats and rebounds this season, but he showed another aspect of his game that has hasn't done often so far in his rookie year. Over the past two weeks, he has averaged 1.3 triples, 1.5 steals and 0.8 blocks, which has allowed him to provide sixth round value during that stretch. If he can continue to be a solid source of all three, he will quickly become a coveted fantasy asset, as he already has in dynasty leagues.
