Marcus Smart, PG/SG, Boston Celtics

Price: $4,100

The Boston Celtics have listed Jaylen Brown as doubtful for tonight's game against New Orleans, opening the door for Marcus Smart to see increased run.

Smart is no lock to start if Brown sits, as Gordon Hayward may do the honors, but his value is there regardless. Smart has averaged 23.0 minutes per game with Brown playing this season, but he saw 27.9 in the lone game he played without Brown.

That game was a fantasy dud for Smart, but a one-game drop in efficiency shouldn't concern you, especially when his minutes jumped as significantly as they did.

Smart's never been an especially efficient fantasy producer and is averaging 0.81 DraftKings points on the year, but with minutes into the high 20's, that is more than enough to provide solid value at this price-point.

Making things even better, the Celtics will be playing way up in pace tonight against the Pelicans, as Boston ranks only 22nd in that category, while the Pels rank 3rd. New Orleans allows top-five fantasy efficiency at both guard spots, and Smart should have no trouble converting his minutes into production tonight.
