Marcus Morris (DK $6,500): Just a few days ago, Marcus Morris was said to have been the best option on the Celtics at guarding LeBron James. Whether this is true or not, he sent the Twitter world into a frenzy. Though many people laughed at him and mocked him, there are stats to back that up. Per Celtics beat Writer, Morris holds the second lowest opponents field goal percentage of anyone in the playoffs. He is also the biggest body that can defend LeBron, with Smart, Brown, and Tatum being just a hair smaller than Morris. With Morris’s recent success in hindering opponents shooting percentages and defensive prowess, we expect him to log big minutes this game and this series attempting to guard James. Morris is the cheapest Celtics player we want to roster, considering Rozier, Horford, Tatum, Brown, and Smart are all over $1,500 more expensive than he is. Hopefully seeing over 30 minutes, Morris would be a great value for DK lines trying to get LeBron. The Cavs overall aren’t a great defensive team and the matchup all around for the Celtics isn’t too scary. In two regular season games against the Cavaliers, Morris started both games, and could easily start with Baynes not being needed in this series as much considering Horford and Love should start at center. Morris showed flashes of great value in the Sixers series and in a game we expect him to see heavier minutes, we will be locking him in at his cheap price on DK.
Jaylen Brown (FDuel $9,500): Jaylen Brown was coming off an injury last series and progressively played more minutes as the series went on. Brown has been a pivotal piece in the Celtics rotation all season long, and with the absence of Larkin for this game, Brown should log more guard minutes in the first few games of this series. Like Morris on DK, Brown is the cheapest rosterable player on the Celtics over on FanDuel. Being priced above Smart and Morris on DK, Brown does not see that type of respect on FDuel. At his sub-10k price tag, he is a lock in load on FanDuel’s Single Game Boost slate. He allows us to get LeBron in the MVP position and we can slot in brown in the PRO or STAR positions as a secondary piece to James. We will be locking him into our FanDuel lines today and would advise you do the same!
