Horford contributed seven points (2-6 FG, 3-4 FT), 10 rebounds, eight assists, one steal and one block across 31 minutes during Sunday's 112-108 victory over the Heat. Horford has been demonstrating his all-around game over the past 13 appearances, averaging 13.8 points, 7.7 rebounds and 5.7 assists across 31.8 minutes per game. He's surprisingly sacrificed some scoring in favor of assists this season -- something that could be good or bad depending on the fantasy format. Regardless, his fantasy value should remain relatively stagnant heading into the final games of the season.
Horford posted 15 points (7-10 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 10 rebounds, six assists and two steals over 30 minutes in Friday's 130-120 win over the Suns. Surprisingly, it was only Horford's seventh double-double on the season, but this is probably largely due to an injury that kept him sidelined for most of November. Although he is unquestionably the number one center for the Celtics, he gets spelled a little more often than most elite big men, as he has some talented players behind him in Kelly Olynyk, Tyler Zeller and Amir Johnson. While this keeps Horford fresh, it does affect his stat line from time to time. He still comes at a reasonable price in DFS formats, and you could do a lot worse than Horford as the top center on your team.
Horford generated 15 points (5-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-5 FT), eight assists, eight rebounds and one steal across 31 minutes in Thursday's 109-100 home win over the Pacers. Horford's all around game setup a very efficient offensive night for the Celtics, who shot 51% from the field. With the C's fully healthy, they are peaking at the right time. Big Al has struggled at times with Isaiah Thomas and/or Avery Bradley out of the lineup. But with the squad at full strength, Horford's passing game can really shine. Boston plays their third game in this six-game home stand on Friday versus the Suns.
Horford had 27 points (11-16 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-5 FT), eight rebounds, six assists, two blocks, and one steal in 33 minutes during Sunday's 105-99 loss to the 76ers. Horford was aggressive on offense with Isaiah Thomas (knee) sidelined for a second straight contest, and the big man finished with a season high in scoring. Prior to the last two games, Horford hadn't attempted 16 shots or more in a game since Jan. 7, this after taking at least that many in nine of his first 27 showings with the Celtics. Coach Brad Stevens already stated that he was hopeful Thomas would play Monday versus the Wizards, so Horford's time as the team's go-to option may be coming to a close.
Horford recorded 20 points (9-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), nine rebounds, eight assists and two blocks across 30 minutes in Wednesday's 117-104 victory over the Timberwolves. Horford has failed to score at least 20 points in one game since January as Wednesday night marked his most efficient night in 2017. While he did all he could shooting, Horford also led the Celtics in rebounds and assists Wednesday night. Don't expect 20 points from Horford on a nightly basis, but his versatility as a big man is valuable for fantasy owners.
