With Miami up 2-0, this is a pivotal game for Boston. And let’s go ahead and address what everyone is wanting to know; Hayward’s status. It appears he is questionable for this game, and even if he plays, it will likely be with a minutes restriction. I would avoid him in your lineup for this one, but note that his return will impact others playing time and fantasy production.
So let’s take a look at some captain options.
Bam ($13,800) was outstanding for a second straight game, scoring 46 dk points in game two. I don’t see how Celtics can stop him, so look for him to continue this in game three.
Herro ($10,800) is a nice cheaper option for captain, if that’s how your lineup shakes out. He scored 30.8 dk points in game two, after 40.8 dk points in game one. He just tied Dwayne Wade with a franchise most, 10 straight playoff games with 10+ points as a rookie. Look for him to break this record tonight.
I have no problem with either of those options at captain, and would plug in the other at a utility spot for you. With Hayward’s return looming, I think the player this will impact the most is Brown ($8,600). I wouldn’t pay up for him in this game.
Dragic ($8,200) has been crushing it. He has one game below 30 DK points since the beginning of Aug; ONE. He offers you a solid floor and is a nice guy to plug into your lineup. Game one fo this series he scored 46.8 dk points, and followed up with 36.8 dk points in game two. that is still over 4x value for his salary.
Wannamaker ($4,800) has been a nice play for the first two games of this series, but his salary increased by $2,000 for this one. Steer clear of this play.
Crowder ($6,800) & Theis ($6,200) offer nice floors at their price, likely each going 20+ dk points at a minimum. That offers 3x value, with the upwards of 4x value.
