Phoenix Suns DFS Spin

Devin Booker produced 19 points, three rebounds, seven assists, one steal and three turnovers across 30 minutes in Wednesday's 116-113 win over the 76ers. Booker had been in a bit of a shooting funk over his past four games, converting on just 35.1% of his shot attempts, but he was a little better tonight — finishing 6-of-14 from the floor and 7-of-8 at the stripe. Chris Paul was locked in from the jump, only missing twice through the first half of action and finishing on 10-of-17 shooting to go with 28 points, eight assists, three rebounds, five triples, one block and zero turnovers in 34 minutes.

Boston Celtics DFS Spin

Jayson Tatum (left ankle impingement) is questionable for Thursday vs. the Suns. It's the front end of a back-to-back and based on the injury report it looks like the Celtics may hold out several key players. Grant Williams and Semi Ojeleye would both soak up a ton of minutes if Tatum can't go but they are not reliable fantasy options.
