  • Brown recorded 22 points (8-13 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 3-6 FT), nine rebounds and one steal across 37 minutes in Monday's 110-102 win over the Marvericks. Brown has emerged as Boston's second-best scoring option due in large part to the huge hole left by Gordon Hayward. Brown and Jayson Tatum have both performed well after that loss, with Brown emerging as the more prolific option of the two. You were fortunate if you neat the rush to the waiver wire immediately after the Hayward injury, as he was left undrafted in most leagues to begin the season. He'll play a key role in extending the Celtics' 16-game streak intact, and has value in all fantasy formats.

  • Brown tallied 27 points (10-13 FG, 4-6 3PT, 3-7 FT) and four rebounds in a 110-99 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday. Brown is scorching hot right now, as he is averaging over 20 points across his last four games. What's going to keep him an elite fantasy option going forward are his minutes, as he is averaging over 32 minutes per game. If there's one aspect that he could see an improvement in, it's his assists. Brown is averaging just 1.3 assists per game for the year, but his 21.3 usage rate and minutes should allow him to get above two the more he develops. The sky is the limit for this 21-year-old, as he's turning into one of the waiver wire pickups of the year.

  • Brown recorded 22 points (7-18 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 5-6 FT), seven rebounds, two steals and two blocks across 34 minutes during a 92-88 win over the Warriors on Thursday. Brown impressively led the team with 22 points in the big win and also swatted a season-high two blocks in the process. His shooting percentage tends to be up and down game-by-game, but Brown has been a good source of points, rebounds and steals all season long. He has scored in double figures in nine of the last 10 games. As reported by ESPN's Chris Forsberg, Brown almost didn't play in Thursday's game after learning about the unexpected passing of his best friend from high school.

  • Brown scored 14 points (5-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), to go along with four rebounds, three assists, and three steals in 31 minutes Tuesday in Boston's win over Brooklyn. Brown's production varies on a night-to-night basis, a result of Boston's plethora of scoring options. He affects the game in a variety of ways, mainly as one of the Celtics' top perimeter defenders. Brown can often be found camping in the corner or driving on an undersized defender, but he doesn't carry much of the creative burden on offense. From a fantasy perspective, Brown is ascending. He continues to find comfort past the three-point line where he's attempting 4.5 shots per game, up from 1.7 last season, and he is connecting on 37 percent this season, up from 34 percent last season.

  • Celtics' Jaylen Brown: Scores 18 in Sunday's win
    By RotoWire Staff

    Brown supplied 18 points (8-15 FG, 2-3 3Pt), three assists, three rebounds and two steals across 33 minutes in Sunday's 95-94 win over the Raptors. The C's were missing Kyrie Irving (minor facial fracture), but Brown, Marcus Smart and others were able to pick up the slack. Brown's biggest improvement this sophomore season is his spike in rebounds. He's averaging 6.9 boards per game, filling the backcourt rebounding void left by Avery Bradley's departure to Detriot. Brown only gathered 2.8 boards a game during his rookie campaign. That said, Brown will need to improve his free throw shooting (61%) and assists (1.1 per game) before reaching "must play" status in fantasy.
