    Celtics' Tyler Zeller: Continues Productive Run

    Zeller scored a season-high 17 points in Sunday's win versus the Kings. Brad Stevens has woken the bearded sleeping giant. After three months of fantasy irrelevance, Zeller has now posted four straight productive games in February. Over that span, he's averaged 13.8 points, 6.5 boards and 1.3 blocks from 21 minutes per game, while shooting 69% from the field. While it's hard to expect this trend to continue for the rest of the season, Zeller now makes for a very intriguing daily fantasy play.

    Celtics' Tyler Zeller: Has productive night down low in Friday win

    Zeller had 16 points (8-10 FG), four rebounds and an assist in 20 minutes on Friday in a win against the Cavaliers. Zeller has been getting more run lately and that could continue going forward as Kelly Olynyk gets fewer minutes. This is now three productive outings in a row for Zeller and everything is trending in the right direction for him. It may be a little premature to add him to your season-long roster right now, but keep an eye on him in the next couple of games to get a true indicator of where his role lies with the Celtics. Zeller has a great matchup against Denver in the next game on Sunday, but again, his minutes are not set in stone.

    Celtics' Tyler Zeller: Sets multiple season highs in Tuesday's win

    Zeller had his best game of the season in Tuesday's 97-879 win over the Knicks, scoring a season-high 16 points (8-13 FG) with 10 rebounds during 27 minutes. It was Zeller's first double-double since January 2015 as coach Brad Stevens played his bench extensively Tuesday. This resulted in a season-high 27 minutes in which Zeller killed the Knicks on the offensive glass. Right now it's safe to flag Zeller in 10- or 12-team leagues, but go ahead and take a chance on him in deeper formats.

    Celtics' Tyler Zeller: Gradually seeing court time

    Zeller has averaged 10 minutes per game in the last five Celtic matches, after receiving seven DNP's in nine prior games. Unfortunately, Zeller has yet to block a shot, grab more than four rebounds or score more than nine points in any of those past five games. Coach Stevens prefers the quicker pace of small-ball lineups, which has resulted in Zeller grabbing a lot of pine. He's unownable in most fantasy formats.

    Celtics' Tyler Zeller: Another DNP CD Sunday

    Zeller received another DNP - Coach's Decision in Sunday's loss at Memphis. That's three DNP's over the past six games, an alarming trend for Zeller, who way back in October had started the Celtic's first three games of the season. Those heady days are long gone, as coach Brad Steven's continues to experiment with rotations. The Celtics will likely have to pull of a much anticipated "big trade" before Zeller's minutes situation changes.

    Celtics' Tyler Zeller: Notches 14 points, eight rebounds

    Zeller registered a season-high 14 points (7-10 FG), eight rebounds, and one blocked shot across 17 minutes in Monday's 113-99 win over the Timberwolves. Zeller saw increased playing time Monday with Jared Sullinger (back spasms) and Amir Johnson (foot) out of the contest, but very nearly spoiled the opportunity after racking up three quick fouls in his first two minutes. However, coach Brad Stevens didn't hesitate to turn back to Zeller, who responded by hitting shots and grabbing boards before eventually fouling out. While the performance was fairly encouraging, Zeller still ranked behind Kelly Olynyk, David Lee, and Jonas Jerebko in minutes, and will likely see his playing time evaporate almost completely once either or both of Johnson and Sullinger return.

    Celtics' Tyler Zeller: Scores season-high 12 points off bench

    Zeller scored a season-high 12 points (5-7 FG, 2-4 FT) with three rebounds and an assist through 10 minutes in a 119-116 loss to the Pistons on Wednesday. Minutes have been hard to come by for the former Tar Heel, receiving a "DNP Coach's Decision" designation in nine games this season. Zeller impressed Wednesday, however, in a bid to receive additional minutes over the likes of David Lee and Kelly Olynyk.

    Celtics' Tyler Zeller: Sits due to coach's decision Wednesday

    Zeller didn't play due to coach's decision in Wednesday's win over the Bulls. Zeller hasn't seen many minutes this season, playing more than seven minutes just five times on the year. Kelly Olynyk has done well as of late and those solid performances have coincided with less playing time for Zeller. Zeller remains a risky option in any format as he hasn't put up good or consistent numbers this season and likely won't any time soon.

    Celtics' Tyler Zeller: Plays 14 minutes in garbage time

    Zeller saw 14 minutes in Monday's 111-95 win over the Rockets. He contributed nine points (3-6 FG, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, and one steal. Zeller cracked double digits in the minutes column for the first time since Oct. 30, when he was still being utilized in the starting lineup. He had taken DNPs in three of the Celtics' previous four games, and Monday's relatively ample minutes load can likely be attributed to the team pulling away from the Rockets by the end of the third quarter. Don't expect Zeller to reemerge as a regular rotation option for the Celtics in the near future.

    Celtics' Tyler Zeller: Plays only three minutes

    Zeller, after being demoted to the bench for the first time this season, played only three minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Pacers. That's two straight games of single digit minutes, two shots and zero points for Boston's Zeller. He is now clearly behind Jared Sullinger, Amir Johnson, David Lee and even Kelly Olynyk in coach Brad Stevens' big man pecking order. That said, Stevens will experiment with lineups throughout the season. For now, Zeller's fantasy value is very low.
