Boston Celtics DFS Notes
Jayson Tatum grabbed a career-high 16 rebounds in a 88-87 win vs. Philly on Wednesday to go with 26 points, two dimes, a steal and three triples. Tatum was coming off a 3-game slump and his performance vs. the Raptors on Sunday was one of his worst in recent memory. He stepped up in a big way tonight though, getting some revenge on a team that had Boston's number last season -- Philly won all three of their games vs. Boston in 2020-21.
Utah Jazz DFS Notes
Donovan Mitchell put up 30 points, two rebounds, five assists, four steals, and one turnover in 32 minutes on Monday. Mitchell scored 21 of his 30 points in the second half and did whatever he wanted offensively in Monday’s blowout victory. Mitchell is a top-20 value in 9-cat leagues this season and continues to fill the stat sheet.
