Key Players

We've broken down player data for key Boston Celtics fantasy basketball players including projections, projections per 36 minutes, last season's averages, and last season's averages when playing between 20-30 minutes as well as between 30-40 minutes.

Kyrie Irving (PG/SG)

Kyrie's numbers should be similar to last season, but if he starts the season slow while he adjusts to a new team it'll be a good time to try and buy low on him.

Marcus Smart (PG)

Marcus will hurt your FG% and he won't score a lot, but he provides nice numbers in other categories. If he can play 30 minutes a night he'll be a good PG in punt assist builds.

Jaylen Brown (SG/SF)

Minutes will be available for Jaylen to start the season, and if he can hold onto a starting spot it's worth keeping an eye on him to see how well he fills the stat sheet. The only concern is how fantasy friendly his game will be.
