Kemba Walker - Boston Celtics (vs. Miami Heat)
Marcus Smart has been maintaining Dragic for much of this series. Miami has shifted their offensive usage to players like Duncan Robinson and Jimmy Butler as well as Tyler Herro of the bench. With Smart locked in on Dragic, Dragic becomes a fade for me tonight. Walker has averaged 34.6 DK points over this series and is shooting 45% from the field. Walker has been very consistent hovering around 30 DK points per game but I assure you, he does have a ceiling. Boston could very well take tonight’s, must-win game 6, evening the series on the back of Kemba Walker. I expect his roster percentages to be towards the lower end of the spectrum. The Celtics are currently favored by -3 points with a 214.5 O/U.

Marcus Smart - Boston Celtics (vs. Miami Heat)
Smart is playing shutdown defense this series. He has averaged 33.6 DK points over this series but since being matched up against Dragic, his averages have been much higher. His fantasy points over his last three games (starting with his most recent game) are 42.5, 33.0, 31.0 - Pretty impressive. As long as Smart is matched up against Dragic, Boston’s Smart is a viable cash or GPP play.
Other SG Option: Tyler Herro - Miami Heat (vs. Boston Celtics)
Jimmy Butler - Miami Heat (vs. Boston Celtics)
My top play of the day. Butler needs to take a leadership role in this one. He’s probably one of the most unselfish superstars but in order for Miami to win tonight, he needs to become slightly more selfish. His matchups are great and he needs to capitalize. Butler is averaging mediocre numbers but tonight that changes. He’s shooting 41 % from the field over this series. He has to be better. Must play on FanDuel. Great play on DraftKings.
Other SF Option: Gordon Hayward - Boston Celtics (vs. Miami Heat)
Jae Crowder - Miami Heat (vs. Boston Celtics)
Crowder will benefit from a Miami win. If your lineup narrative involves Miami closing out the series tonight, include the big man in your lineup. He’s protecting the paint well and maintaining Tatum as best he can. While his salary is high, he provides cash game safety with a high ceiling. Love Crowder as a player but will not likely be in the optimal lineup, he will however be considered a contrarian cash game play.
Other PF Option: Jayson Tatum - Boston Celtics (vs. Miami Heat)
Daniel Theis - Boston Celtics (vs. Miami Heat)
Everyone loves Kanter and Bam, but let’s be different. Theis is Boston’s starting Center. When he gets off to an impressive start, it usually means that fantasy goodness will follow. Brad Stevens is a very smart coach, you never know what he’s thinking. Don't get locked in on the chalky kanter too quickly because if Theis starts hot, expect him to produce. Remember, Theis will hit value in a Celtics win, Bam reaches value in a Miami win. Know your narrative, don't pick blindly.
Other C Option: Bam Adebayo - Miami Heat (vs. Boston Celtics)
