    Tremont Waters shot 10-for-16 from the field for 24 points with two boards, seven assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 29 minutes of action in a win over the Cavs on Tuesday.

    Waters was hot, combining with Carsen Edwards to account for 54 of the Celtics' 118 points on Tuesday night. He is on a two-way contract after being selected 51st in the NBA Draft. Waters should get ample opportunity in the G-League this season.

  • Carsen Edwards
    PG, Boston Celtics

    Carsen Edwards shot 10-for-16 from the floor for 30 points with three boards, one block and nine triples in 21 minutes against the Cavs on Tuesday.

    Wow. Edwards was unconscious from beyond the arc, going 9-for-15 and putting on an absolute show. Eight of his treys came in the third quarter, where Edwards scored 26 of his 30 points alone. He will play behind Kemba Walker and Marcus Smart at point guard this season, but he is worth being on the radar in deep leagues and a name to stash away in case of injuries. Remember the name.

  • Robert Williams III
    C-F, Boston Celtics

    After taking a blow to the head, Robert Williams will sit out the rest of the game on Tuesday against the Cavs.

    Kevin Love gave an elbow to Williams' head, resulting in him coming out and sitting on the bench. The Celtics quickly ruled him out for the rest of the game with concussion-like symptoms. Williams will be re-evaluated for a concussion Wednesday in Boston.

  • Robert Williams III
    C-F, Boston Celtics

    Robert Williams will start Tuesday against the Cavs alongside Brad Wanamaker, Carsen Edwards, Semi Ojeleye and Grant Williams.

    Willaims gets his crack in the starting Celtics C carousel tonight after playing just 11 minutes on Sunday. There are a lot of cheap options to choose from on the Celtics for tonight's three-game DFS slate.

  • Kemba Walker
    PG, Boston Celtics

    Kemba Walker, Jayson Tatum, Enes Kanter, Marcus Smart, Jaylen Brown, Gordon Hayward and Daniel Theis were all left back in Boston as the Celtics plan to rest most of their rotation guys for Tuesdays’s game against the Cavs.

    The Celtics destroyed the Cavs on Sunday and are opting to give the night off to their starters as the season opener is just a week away. Tatum is actually battling an illness but the rest of the guys will just receive a maintenance day.

  • Jayson Tatum
    SF, Boston Celtics

    The Celtics picked up the fourth-year option on forward Jayson Tatum.

    Tatum has enjoyed two strong seasons out of the gate in Boston. It's no surprise that the Celtics want to keep him around. Expect Tatum to be drafted around the fifth round of many drafts.

  • Romeo Langford
    SG, Boston Celtics

    Romeo Langford will not play on Tuesday after suffering a right knee sprain on Sunday.

    Another tough break for Langford, who has been battling injuries throughout camp and going back into his last year at college. It sounds like an injury that could affect his availability at the start of the season, so there's no need to monitor him outside of deep-league drafts.

  • Jayson Tatum
    SF, Boston Celtics

    Jayson Tatum (illness) did not practice on Monday and will not travel to Cleveland for Tuesday's game.

    There's no need for the Celtics to push their young star for the last preseason game. Expect a skeleton crew from Boston tomorrow night, which should bring lots of value to the DFS table. Tatum remains a solid top-60 selection in fantasy drafts.

  • Vincent Poirier
    C, Boston Celtics

    Vincent Poirier will have an expanded role in Tuesday's preseason game, per Brad Stevens.

    The Celtics have been mixing and matching their centers all preseason and Poirier has generally been the odd man out, so Boston will try and get a longer look at the intriguing rookie before the preseason wraps up. His role figures to be minimal in the regular season but DFS players can look to him on Tuesday. Poirier logged six minutes on Sunday.

  • Kemba Walker
    PG, Boston Celtics

    Kemba Walker returned from a one-game absence (sore knee) in Sunday's 118-72 thrashing of the Cavs, scoring 12 points with three triples in 16 minutes.

    Walker is healthy and if nothing else it's good to know that the minor knee troubles are behind him. Consider him a viable pick at the end of the second round in all formats.

  • Robert Williams III
    C-F, Boston Celtics

    Robert Williams only played 11 minutes on Sunday but he still picked up eight points, three rebounds, two steals and two blocks.

    Brad Stevens said that center could be a rotating position for the Celtics, so performances like these will help Williams' case even if he's unlikely to start. Deep-league managers should be eyeing Williams as a blocks specialist while he'll hold streaming appeal in shallow formats based on matchups.

  • Daniel Theis
    PF, Boston Celtics

    Daniel Theis put up 10 points, three rebounds, two assists and a block in 11 minutes of Sunday's preseason win.

    The Celtics steamrolled Cleveland so there was no need for extended minutes, but Brad Stevens went out of his way to praise Theis' defense after the game. It certainly looks as though he'll start at center, which makes him worth a shot in all 16-team leagues at the very least. There's top-150 upside depending on playing time and Theis can rack up some helpful cash counters when given the opportunity.

  • Romeo Langford
    SG, Boston Celtics

    Romeo Langford (right knee sprain) will not return to Sunday's preseason game versus the Cavs.

    The is a drawback for Langford as he has been sidelined during most of the preseason with left knee and left groin soreness. There is no word on the severity of the sprain just yet and he may have to wait until tomorrow for an MRI.

  • Tacko Fall
    C, Boston Celtics

    Tacko Fall will sign a two-way deal with the Celtics.

    This was expected when the Celtics converted Max Strus' two-way contract to a standard deal earlier today. The fan favorite will spend most of his season in the G-League but the Celtics are ready to invest in his immense potential.

  • Daniel Theis
    PF, Boston Celtics

    Daniel Theis will draw the start at center in Sunday's preseason game with the Cavs.

    This will be Theis' second straight start and his fantasy stock continues to trend upwards. He can do a little bit of everything and should blast past his previous career-high of 14.8 mpg. Last season, in 13.8 mpg, Theis averaged 5.7 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1.0 points, 0.3 steals, 0.6 blocks and 0.4 threes, so deep-league managers would definitely have use for 20 -24 minutes of Theis.
