Utah Jazz DFS Spin

Rudy Gobert grabbed a career-high 28 rebounds during Sunday's loss to Golden State, adding 24 points with four blocks, two steals and one assist in 32 minutes. Gobert's dozens of rebounds also tied Utah's franchise record. His size gave the Warriors fits at both ends (eight offensive boards), but Utah's defense was exposed as they gave up 131 points on 56.2% shooting. Fantasy managers still went home happy, as Gobert shot 8-of-10 from the field and 8-of-13 from the line with zero turnovers in 32 minutes of action. Teams are always scheming to draw the Stifle Tower out of the paint, but he's still averaging 3.4 blocks in his past eight games. As today's game vividly reminds us, he can also single-handedly win rebounds any given week in category leagues.

Boston Celtics DFS Spin

Jayson Tatum hit 9-of-17 shots, 3-of-5 3-pointers, and 2-of-2 free throws for 23 points, six assists, six rebounds, one steal, and two turnovers in a win over the Rockets on Sunday. Tatum's 23 points came in 28 minutes because the Celtics were steamrolling the Rockets. Tatum's looked great in two games back from the All-Star break after stumbling to the finish line. Tatum battled COVID-19 in January, and clearly, the rest has helped. Despite the brief stint on the floor, his six assists were his most since February 19th.
