Brock Boeser Headshot

Boeser scored two power-play goals on a game-high six shots in Tuesday's 6-2 win over the Kings.

Boeser is in the midst of a tremendous campaign, as he's up to 24 goals on the season. While Boeser had gone six games without a goal coming in, his consistent ability to generate shots suggests he should continue lighting the lamp at a high rate moving forward. The 20-year-old's averaging just a shade under three shots on goal per game.

Marcus Smart Headshot

Smart produced 22 points (7-13 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 4-4 FT), eight assists, two rebounds and a steal in 22 minutes during Tuesday'a 108-107 loss to the Lakers.

Smart's 22 points outdid any of the recent contests where we replaced Kyrie Irving in the lineup and Tuesday's effort ended up as Smart's second-highest scoring output this season. He pieced together minutes spelling Irving, Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum to manufacture this excellent stat line, and it will be interesting to see how he's utilized going forward. If Brown struggles, or if Irving misses more time, Smart would be a must -add in seasonal leagues.
1:50 am (EST)
Al Horford Headshot

Horford put up 13 points (5-11 FG, 3-5 3Pt), 12 rebounds, six assists and two blocked shots in 32 minutes during Tuesday's 108-107 loss to the Lakers.

Horford ended up being grossly under-owned in DFS formats on Tuesday and those who went his way were rewarded with a nice effort despite the loss. This was Horford's best performance since late December, as he's been plagued with single-digit output in either points or rebounds over his past six contests. When he can get the two categories going in tandem he's as good of a value as any elite center in the league, but unfortunately, it hasn't happened often enough for him to achieve top-tier potential.
1:42 am (EST)
Jacob Markstrom Headshot

Markstrom made 30 saves in Tuesday's 6-2 win over the Kings.

Markstrom had a surprisingly easy time in this game, getting four goals of support in the first period and two more in the second. The Swedish netminder's been rolling of late with three wins in his past four starts.
1:41 am (EST)
Jonathan Quick Headshot

Quick gave up five goals on 19 shots before getting the hook in Tuesday's 6-2 loss to the Canucks.

Quick has been relied upon a ton of late, with this being his fourth start since last Thursday. That heavy workload finally caught up to Quick here, as he allowed five goals for the first time since Dec. 12 before getting pulled in the second period. He's lost five of his past six starts, so Quick's value is currently at its lowest point of the season.
1:40 am (EST)
Kyrie Irving Headshot

Irving contributed 33 points (13-24 FG, 4-11 3Pt, 3-3 FT), four assists and three rebounds in 38 minutes during Tuesday;'s 108-107 loss to the Lakers.

The Celtics dropped their fourth straight game on Tuesday, but you can't blame Kyrie Irving for their troubles, as he's averaged 27 points, 6.5 rebounds and 4.5 assists over his last three games, and this was despite missing a game due to a shoulder problem on the 18th. The Celtics are lacking the same cohesiveness they had earlier in the season, and Jayson Tatum has fallen off the radar a bit in their offensive attack. The Celtics should have had this game in the bag and they let it slip away in the fourth quarter. They'll stay in LA to face the Clippers on Wednesday, and Irving is expected to lead the team in production once again.
1:28 am (EST)
Jordan Clarkson Headshot

Clarkson produced 22 points (8-17 FG, 0-4 3Pt. 6-7 FT), five rebounds, four assists and two steals in 34 minutes during Tuesday's 108-107 win over the Celtics.

In what has become a recurring theme while Lonzo Ball (knee) has been sidelined, Tyler Ennis and Josh Hart gave way to Clarkson early in the second quarter and hardly saw the floor after that. To say that Clarkson has been the offensive linchpin for the Lakers during their encouraging run wouldn't be an overstatement, as he's shown his superior play time and time again when Ball has been out. Clarkson has played so well of late that trade conversation has shifted from him to Kentavious Caldwell-Pope as the more expendable option. Clarkson could be a great commodity to fantasy owners if he does move elsewhere, but he'll remain stuck behind Ball when he returns.
1:19 am (EST)
Julius Randle Headshot

Randle posted 14 points (6-12 FG, 2-3 FT), 14 rebounds, an assist and a steal in 26 minutes during Tuesday's 108-107 win over the Celtics.

Randle became part of a larger starting five to match up against the Celtics and excelled in the opportunity, as he recorded his 11th double-double of the season with 14 boards. He did all this in 26 minutes of work, which has become a big selling point for Randle - many of his double-doubles have occurred with less than 30 minutes of floor time. The 22-year-old has shown up in a big way while players like Kyle Kuzma have faltered.
1:12 am (EST)
Kyle Kuzma Headshot

Kuzma posted 28 points (10-16 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 3-5 FT), four rebounds and three assists in 27 minutes during Tuesday's 108-107 win over the Celtics.

In a game that came down to the wire, Kuzma provided a nice spark off the bench, which was a welcome sign for Kuzma owners who have seen his output trail off in the past few games. He drained five threes out of seven attempts which will surely boost his 37.2 percent success rate from long range. Kuzma looks to be sent to the bench whenever coach Luke Walton elects to go with a taller trio in the backcourt, but when the matchup is right he is more likely to see extended time.
1:04 am (EST)
Brett Pesce Headshot

Pesce recorded a shot and two hits through 18:43 of ice time during Tuesday's 3-1 loss to Carolina.

The third-year defenseman had missed the past five games with an upper-body injury, but he settled back into his typical pairing with Jaccob Slavin against Pittsburgh and logged close to his usual workload. Pesce has just nine assists through 40 games for the season, and he's usually deployed in a defensive role to match up against the opposition's top players. As a result, his fantasy value is limited.
