Favorite Plays

Stud Player

Giannis Antetokounmpo

Normally in the playoffs, I can make a case for any of the stud players being a better option than the other stud players. That is not the case tonight for me as Mr. ABC is hands down your top player on this slate. The Greek Freak comes into this pivotal game five averaging 32 points, 13 rebounds, eight assists, and 2.1 steals+blocks. Antetokounmpo has at least 63 fantasy points in three of the four games in this series with the other game being a 50 burger.

Mid-Tier Player

Al Horford

I have said every game this series to roster Horford and I am going to tell you to do it again. Horford has been the best player on the court for Boston in this series and has really turned out over the past two games. In those two games, Horford is averaging 26 points, 12 rebounds, four assists, and 1.5 blocks. Horford has at least 48 fantasy points in both of those games. For the series, Horford is averaging 45.94 fantasy points per game which is the highest on the Celtics and only being Giannis Antetokounmpo in this series.

Value Player

Tyus Jones

It looks like Ja Morant will be out for the rest of the playoffs and as was the case during the regular season when Morant is out you need to roster Jones. Jones always seem to shine during the regular season when Morant was out and he definitely shined in game four with Morant out. In that game, Jones started played 41 minutes and had a huge state line of 19/6/5 with a block on his way to 37 fantasy points.
