Jayson Tatum led the Celtics in their 139-107 win over the Lakers on Monday with 27 pints, five boards, three dimes, a steal and five 3-pointers.
Tatum went 10-for-18 from the field which is impressive, considering he went 5-for-8 from deep. The high volume triples bring some variance to his shooting efficiency, but overall he's getting the job done with 21.5 points, 6.9 rebounds, 2.8 dimes, 1.4 steals, 0.8 blocks and 2.4 3s. That's good enough for top-30 value. Not bad for a 21-year old.

Jayson Tatum double-doubled in Saturday's loss to the Suns, finishing with 26 points, 10 rebounds, two assists, three steals and a block.
Tatum was great in this one and stuffed the box score in all categories. He is having a great season and is returning third-round value for lucky fantasy owners.

Jayson Tatum had a decent return to the court on Thursday with 17 points on 7-of-20 shooting with seven rebounds and three assists in a game-high 40 minutes.
Tatum had a decent return to the court if we shield our eyes from the poor shooting performance. Clearly the knee soreness truly was minor as he played a heavy complement of minutes. He's a strong top-30 contributor on a per-game basis. Gordon Hayward struggled even more than Tatum in this contest, shooting 1-of-10 from the floor and scoring just seven points in 32 minutes.

Jayson Tatum (right knee soreness) isn't on the injury report for Thursday.
Tatum sat out Wednesday's game after popping up on the injury report with a knee issue. He was always expected to at least join the Celtics in Milwaukee and it's reassuring that he isn't even on the report. It looks like a case of precaution in a back-to-back set.

Brad Stevens said this morning that Jayson Tatum will miss Wednesday’s game against the Pistons, but he will travel with the team to Milwaukee for tomorrow’s game.
This doesn’t seem to be anything serious so it’s likely that the Celtics are being cautious with their young forward in the first leg of their back-to-back. Jaylen Brown and Gordon Hayward should pick up the extra minutes tonight.

Jayson Tatum (right knee soreness) is being listed as probable to face the Pistons on Wednesday.
The knee injury is a new issue, but it doesn't seem to be anything serious. Though, it's something to keep an eye on as we are in the midst of the load management era. In the meantime, owners can continue to roll out Tatum, who has been a top-10 player in 9/8 cat leagues over the past month, with confidence.

Jayson Tatum scored 21 points on 7-of-17 shooting while adding six rebounds, two assists, a steal, two blocks and two triples in Monday's 113-101 win over the Bulls.
Tatum followed up his career-high night with a bit of a downer in this one, but his increased 3-point shooting helps mitigate the damage. He's getting it done on defense as well, which is a part of the game that doesn't get spoken about enough as he's averaging 1.4 steals and 0.8 blocks. This is balancing out his .429 shooting and propping him up to top-30 value. If the shooting ever starts to rise, we're looking at a top-15 fantasy asset.

Jayson Tatum scored 41 points, on 16-of-22 shooting, enroute to a lopsided 140-105 win over the Pelicans on Saturday night, finishing with six rebounds, four assists and three steals.
Tatum was hyper-efficient from the field and ended up shooting a game-high 22 field goals, converting 16 of them with 6-of-9 from beyond the arc. The 41 points are a career-high for him as he also contributed strongly across the board, bolstered with three swipes. This performance is a clear indicator for owners that he is a solid fantasy cornerstone as continues to be solid across multiple categories and is returning third-round value.

Jayson Tatum notched a double-double in Thursday's loss to the Sixers, finishing with 15 points, 10 rebounds, four assists, three steals, a blocked shot and four turnovers in 36 minutes.
Tatum didn't score much again in this contest but he still added four defensive counters to add to this line. He's going to be a strong asset the rest of the way.
January 6, 2020, 10:09 pmGordon HaywardSF, Boston Celtics
Gordon Hayward double-doubled with 10 points on 4-of-11 shooting, adding 10 rebounds four assists, one 3-pointer and one block in Monday's 93-99 loss to the Wizards – yes, the Wizards.
Hayward struggled with his shot, but so did all his teammates in this one. Jayson Tatum went 8-of-20 from the field for 17 points with one rebound, two assists, one trey and two blocks. Don't fret too much about these lackluster performances from these two. They should settle into a top-50 to top-75 range on the season.

Jayson Tatum scored 28 points (12-of-15) to lead the Celtics in their 111-104 road win over the Bulls, chipping in seven rebounds, two assists, two steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers.
Tatum stepped up in a big way this game contributing across all counting categories. The combined four steals/blocks was a huge boon for managers that played him in DFS, however the cherry on top was the efficient shooting from the field (12-of-15) and from the charity line (2-of-2). Tatum is now returning third round value and will continue to provide solid contribution across the board even when teammate Kemba Walker returns from injury.

Jayson Tatum could not find the ring on Friday, shooting 2-of-16 from the field for 13 points, nine rebounds and three assists.
For what it's worth (not much), Tatum did go 9-of-10 from the line. However, the noticeable lack of cash counters in this one left a lot to be desired. It's a regression game, nothing to be worried about as Tatum has still been a top-80 asset over the last week.

Jayson Tatum dropped a team-high 24 points to go along with seven rebounds, one assist, three steals, one block and four triples on 10-of-18 shooting in 36 minutes vs. the Hornets on Tuesday.
The 36 minutes were also a team-high and Tatum was getting whatever he wanted in this one. He's a top-30 option in 9-cat leagues and although he isn't the most consistent player, he should continue to be started everywhere.

Jayson Tatum went off for 30 points (11-of-20 FG), five 3-pointers, five rebounds and two blocks against the Cavs on Friday.
Tatum continues to impress and is able to bring fantasy lines to the table featuring all types of statistics. His versatility makes it difficult to know what to expect on a night-to-night basis, but it still adds up to him delivering top-40 value with upside.

Jayson Tatum dominated the Hornets during Sunday's 119-93 victory, as he went off for a career-high 39 points (15-of-29 FG, 5-of-5 FT), 11 rebounds, four 3-pointers, three blocks and one steal.
Tatum racked up 22 points in the fourth quarter of a game that shifted into a blowout in the second half of action. This was his third consecutive game of 24 or more points. All he needs is an improved field-goal percentage to be a top-25 asset in fantasy, and it looks like he could be turning the corner before our eyes. That being said, Gordon Hayward and Marcus Smart were both absent tonight, and the depth of this roster could limit Tatum's ability to turn into a consistent early-round value.
