Jared Sullinger scored 12 points on 5-of-11 shooting Friday, with seven rebounds, three assists, one steal, three blocks and two turnovers in 24 minutes.
The players in Boston's frontcourt have been annoying to own this season, and while Sully has had his moments, he's been putting up just thirteenth-round value over the past month in standard 9-cat leagues. Amir Johnson played just 14 minutes tonight, on his way to six points, six rebounds and an assist, while Kelly Olynyk contributed a meager two points, one steal and one turnover in his 12 minutes off the bench. Sullinger is more of a stash to hope things improve after the trade deadline. Feb 5 - 11:46 PM

Jared Sullinger played just 18 minutes, but still hit 6-of-11 shots for 12 points, three rebounds, five assists, a steal and a block in Wednesday's win over the Pistons.

He played 17 minutes on Tuesday but had just four points and two rebounds. He's been giving up minutes to Kelly Olynyk and Tyler Zeller, and will simply need more than 18 minutes a night to make a real fantasy impact.
Feb 3 - 10:56 PM

Jared Sullinger played just 17 minutes and hit 2-of-6 shots for four points, two rebounds and a steal in Tuesday's win over the Knicks.

Sully had just five points and four rebounds on Sunday after double-doubling in his previous game. Kelly Olynyk looks like the better play right now, despite coming off the bench. Amir Johnson was also quiet, going for four points and four rebounds in just 15 minutes, and has scored in single figures in nine straight games.
Feb 2 - 10:43 PM

Jared Sullinger finished Sunday's defeat with only five points and four rebounds in 18 minutes, shooting 2-of-7 from the field without any assists, steals or blocks.

He's played no more than 21 minutes in four consecutive games and sat out the final 18:24 tonight, as Amir Johnson, Kelly Olynyk and Jonas Jerebko manned the frontcourt. Sullinger has plenty of upside, which he flashes on occasion, but his low playing time makes him very frustrating to own. Patience is warranted in 12-team leagues.
Jan 31 - 9:55 PM

Jared Sullinger followed up Friday's big game with a career-high seven assists, eight points, 11 rebounds and one steal in an easy win vs. the 76ers on Sunday.

Sullinger has been inconsistent after a hot start to the season, but he has too much upside to cut in most leagues. He continues to start ahead of Kelly Olynyk, a situation that doesn't seem likely to change, and he now has five consecutive games with at least one steal. Sully is trending in the right direction, so don't hesitate to plug him into active lineups.
Jan 24 - 9:39 PM

Jared Sullinger scored 18 points with 12 rebounds, five assists, three steals, one block and one turnover in 30 minutes against the Bulls on Friday.

Not having Amir Johnson (personal) was huge for Sullinger tonight. He's not playing his best ball this month and has only been hanging around top-100 value in January. He should still be better going forward, but he's not a total must-own player in very shallow leagues.
Jan 22 - 10:55 PM

Jared Sullinger flopped in 13 minutes on Wednesday with three points on 1-of-7 shooting, two rebounds, one assist and two steals.

Maybe he should consider using shooting analytics. The Celts fell 109-115 and they've now lost 10 straight games by single digits. Sullinger's dreadful performance was even more glaring when juxtaposed with Kelly Olynyk, who scored 18 points on 10 shots off the bench. We'll be keeping an eye on Brad Stevens' starting lineup for Friday's game vs. Chicago.
Jan 20 - 11:53 PM

Jared Sullinger said he's done using shooting analytics.

After shooting 27.7 percent from beyond the arc this season, Sullinger has decided to ditch shooting analytics. "I think that was my biggest thing is that I was worried about where I was popping at," Sullinger said. "I didn’t want to shoot a long 2. Analytics say to shoot the 3. I just threw the analytics out the door. Wherever you pop, just shoot it." Sullinger was re-inserted into the Celtics starting lineup on Wednesday, but only scored four points. he should be owned in standard leagues, but fantasy owners shouldn't expect huge upside here.
Jan 14 - 12:12 PM

Jared Sullinger returned to the Celtics' starting five on Wednesday but had only four points on 2-of-5 shooting, three rebounds and two assists in 20 minutes.

"I thought Sully had a really good night [Tuesday]," Brad Stevens said, explaining the switch. "The Pacers ... have been starting big, and if they do that, it gives us a better chance to rebound the ball." It's not guaranteed that Sullinger will keep the job ahead of Kelly Olynyk (15 minutes) and neither guy was on the court down the stretch tonight, but Sully should be owned while we see how this plays out.
Jan 14 - 12:33 AM

Jared Sullinger will return to the starting lineup for Wednesday's game vs. the Pacers, sending Kelly Olynyk back to the bench.

Sullinger will see a boost in value with the return to the starting five, although it's anyone’s guess as to just how long he'll be able to hold onto his starting spot in Boston's crowded frontcourt rotation. Sully is averaging 9.6 points, 9.5 boards, 0.8 blocks and 0.5 three-pointers per game on 40.7 percent shooting as a starter this season, so he's not necessarily a must-start option tonight with a tough matchup and nine other games being played.
Jan 13 - 6:18 PM

Jared Sullinger played 20 minutes and hit 6-of-10 shots for 14 points and seven rebounds off the bench on Tuesday.

He's averaging 11.6 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.0 steals over his last five games in just 21 minutes a night, and could see a boost if he retakes his starting job from a struggling Kelly Olynyk.
Jan 12 - 11:35 PM

Jared Sullinger scored 13 points with 11 rebounds, two assists and one block in 25 minutes against the Bulls on Thursday.

This is a big improvement from his ugly eight-point, two-board game on Wednesday. Sullinger hasn't been too bad off the bench, but he's still likely to return to the starting role once Avery Bradley (hip) returns, which could be as soon as Sunday. Sully should be owned in standard leagues despite a step back from his hot start.
Jan 7 - 10:40 PM

Jared Sullinger was plagued by foul trouble throughout Wednesday's game, which he finished with only eight points, two rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block.

He logged 15 minutes off the bench, shooting 3-of-7 from the field and 2-of-2 at the FT line, and may be featured on Shaqtin' a Fool after trying and failing to imitate Rajon Rondo's fake-behind-the-back pass. Sullinger played well on Monday and coach Brad Stevens hasn't ruled out returning him to the starting lineup, but owners should consider benching him until his playing time increases -- he's averaging just 17.0 minutes in Boston's past three games.
Jan 7 - 12:04 AM

Brad Stevens wouldn't commit to keeping Kelly Olynyk in the starting lineup over Jared Sullinger.

Sullinger had a double-double (12 points, 10 rebounds) to go along with three steals, a three and no turnovers in just 17.5 minutes on Monday while coming off the bench. Whether he's starting or coming off the bench, Sullinger's production will be inconsistent while splitting minutes with Olynyk and Amir Johnson. Boston's frontcourt rotation is a mess.
Jan 5 - 1:45 PM

Jared Sullinger played 18 minutes off the bench on Monday with 12 points, 10 rebounds, two assists, three steals and one 3-pointer.

He didn't turn the ball over and had a very productive game in limited minutes. Sullinger might stick as a bench guy, but his fantasy owners can't complain if he's putting up numbers like this. Although, it seems like this lineup move was matchup-based and because Avery Bradley (hip) was out. Keep Sully owned.
