Jeff Teague News
Boston Celtics point/shooting guard Jeff Teague will start Wednesday's contest versus the Hawks in place of Kemba Walker (knee, rest). Teague has averaged 9.3 PPG in his three previous starts this year, as he'll have solid punt play appeal when facing his former team. With Walker out of the mix, Payton Pritchard also draws DFS consideration as the top guard off the bench. Having fallen heavily out of favor, Teague will look to carve out a niche for himself moving forward with a solid performance, but Walker can be expected to reclaim his starting role Friday against Indiana.
Boston Celtics point guard Jeff Teague (ankle) has been cleared to suit up for Friday's contest against the Wizards, stemming his absence due to an ankle injury at two games. His return zaps Payton Pritchard of his fantasy intrigue, as the rookie filled in with an increased role as a reserve with Teague down. While the veteran has dished out multiple assists in every game that he has played thus far in 2020-21, he has scored in double figures just once since opening night. His 33.3 percent field-goal percentage, when combined with his 20.6 minutes per contest average, likely knocks him from season-long consideration, even in deeper formats, at least while he gets back up to game speed.
Boston Celtics point guard Jeff Teague (ankle) has been battling a sprained left ankle that has kept him out of the team's two most recent contests, but he has been upgraded to questionable for Friday's game against the Wizards. With Marcus Smart back in the fold, he has taken over full-time PG duties, while Payton Pritchard has seen an increased role in Teague's absence; a return from the veteran would zap the rookie of nearly all his fantasy intrigue. Teague has been quiet since a 19-point barrage in the season opener, having scored in double figures just once since then. Combined with his capped minutes total, Teague is an avoidable season-long asset, even in deeper leagues. But check back before tip-off to see if he suits up, as another absence would create a Boston backcourt domino effect.
The Boston Celtics will be without guard Jeff Teague (ankle) again Wednesday against the Miami Heat, but will get guard Marcus Smart (thumb) back after a one-game absence. Smart's return will likely push Tremont Waters back to the bench who will take a huge hit in fantasy value. Teague, missing his second straight, should give more minutes to Payton Pritchard, who had a career-high 23 points and eight assists on Monday off the bench. Pritchard has played extremely well, with and without Teague, this season and warrants some attention in 12-team leagues and up.
