Marcus Smart bounced back from his four-point game on Tuesday, but still hit just 4-of-10 shots for 12 points, four rebounds, one assist, one steal and four 3-pointers on Wednesday.
Smart is an interesting player to own right now, but is still mired behind guys like Avery Bradley, Isaiah Thomas and Evan Turner. That may sound discouraging, but he gets a ton of minutes next to Bradley and Thomas. He should be owned in all standard leagues. Feb 3 - 11:02 PM

Marcus Smart came off the bench and hit just 1-of-5 shots for four points, two assists and two steals in 29 minutes on Tuesday.

He came in hot, scoring 26 and 16 points in his previous two games, but never got anything going tonight. He should bounce back in their next one.
Feb 2 - 10:55 PM

Marcus Smart. who has been working on his 3-point shot, drew praise from Brad Stevens after Sunday's 26-point performance.

"He’s starting to feel better about shooting it," Stevens said. "He didn’t get much time in the gym when he was [injured], just because of the nature of his injury...So now he’s clearly in a better rhythm than when he first came back." Smart is 13-of-27 from distance over his last five games, averaging 15.0 points, 3.6 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 2.8 steals and 2.6 triples in 29 minutes per game during that time.

Feb 1 - 9:45 AM

Marcus Smart hit 8-of-16 shots, including five 3-pointers, to finish Sunday's road loss with 26 points, five rebounds, two steals and zero turnovers in 28 minutes.

Shooting has been a big liability for Smart this season, as he came in hitting just 35.0 percent of his shots (23.8 percent from deep). He's 48.1 percent from downtown over Boston's past five games, however, with a total of 14 steals during that span, so he needs to be in active lineups until he cools off.
Jan 31 - 9:54 PM

Marcus Smart put on a defensive show against the Magic on Friday with 16 points with two rebounds, four assists, three steals and three 3-pointers on 5-of-9 from the field.

He's been wonderful in reality. His defense has been one of the best in the NBA these days, which probably made coach Scott Skiles wish he had Smart like 10 times during this game. Smart is solidifying himself as a must-own player in standard leagues.
Jan 29 - 10:53 PM

Marcus Smart never got going offensively vs. the Nuggets, coming off the bench for just four points (0-of-5 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs) with three assists, three steals and two rebounds in 28 minutes.

Smart shot 50.0 percent over his previous two games, with solid supporting stats, but he's typically a drag in the percentage categories (34.9 FGs, 70.1 FTs). The defensive menace is still worth owning in most points leagues, and has upside for 3-pointers and steals with a modicum of points, boards and assists.
Jan 27 - 10:32 PM

Marcus Smart scored 13 points with six rebounds, five assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes against the Wizards on Monday.

He's been fairly consistent in his last five, averaging 12.6 points, 5.2 boards, 3.2 assists, 2.0 steals and 1.4 treys on 46.2 percent from the field. That's good for fourth-round value, so Smart clearly should be owned in all standard leagues.
Jan 25 - 9:49 PM

The Celtics beat the 76ers during Sunday's re-scheduled game, as Marcus Smart contributed 16 points, three 3-pointers, three boards, two assists, four steals and one block in 29 minutes off the bench.

Smart's shooting has been a major drag on his fantasy production this season, as he's averaging just 8.7 points on 33.3 percent shooting, including a combined 17-of-87 from downtown (19.5 percent). It's great to see him find the range tonight (6-of-11 from the field), but he's best left on the waiver wire in leagues that count percentages.
Jan 24 - 9:36 PM

Marcus Smart is focusing on attacking the rim because he is shooting just 19.5 percent from 3-point range this season.

"That’s one of my main thoughts is to try to get myself going, seeing the ball go in with some easy buckets, getting to the rim, trying to get to the free-throw line a lot more," said Smart. "And then start taking those shots where my brain sees the ball go in, confidence starts to go up a little bit, and hopefully get a rhythm that way." Smart has been spending a lot of time in the gym to establish a rhythm from deep, so hopefully he will get it going in a favorable matchup vs. the 76ers on Sunday.

Marcus Smart made 3-of-12 from the field for eight points with five rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 29 minutes against the Bulls on Friday.

He'll have his fair share of bad shooting games, but he does add several categories to his stat line. Smart is still a hold in standard leagues, especially with the Celtics going with more small ball.
Jan 22 - 10:58 PM

Marcus Smart scored 20 points in 39 minutes during a 118-113 overtime loss to the Mavs on Monday, adding eight rebounds, three assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

His odd leg injury is definitely behind him with three solid-to-great games in a row. Coach Brad Stevens is using more small lineups than he has in a long time, including using a Smart, Avery Bradley and Isaiah Thomas combination for 14.3 minutes tonight -- this combo was also used on their last game. Smart should be owned in standard leagues.
Jan 19 - 12:11 AM

Marcus Smart scored 13 points with four rebounds, three assists and one steal in 24 minutes against the Wizards on Saturday.

It wasn't a great game to follow up from his triple-double on Friday, but it wasn't a letdown. Smart is capable of putting up decent stats with minutes in the mid 20s because he should have some steals, dimes and treys.
Jan 16 - 10:40 PM

Marcus Smart posted the first triple-double of his career on Friday against the Suns, scoring 10 points, 11 rebounds, 10 assists, two steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes.

Smart's minutes cap is obviously a thing of the past as he put up a huge stat-stuffing line. The Celtics have better numbers going small, so he should still get plenty of minutes regardless of his role. He has enough upside in assists, steals and treys to be owned in all standard leagues.
Jan 15 - 10:58 PM

Marcus Smart played 25 minutes off the Celtics bench on Tuesday and had six points, six rebounds, four assists and a 3-pointer on 2-of-7 shooting.

Isaiah Thomas was on fire so the fact Smart got 25 minutes is a pleasant surprise. But as long as Thomas is healthy, it's hard to see Smart suddenly becoming a fantasy factor any time soon.
Jan 12 - 11:40 PM

Marcus Smart tied his season high with five steals on Sunday, adding four points on 2-of-9 shooting with six boards and three assists in 24 minutes off the bench.

Marcus didn't look so smart when he committed a frustration foul on Mario Chalmers with 33 seconds remaining and the Celtics trailing by three points, but that wouldn't have mattered if Boston had protected their double-digit lead. Smart has some value as a steals specialist, but brutal percentages limit his overall appeal to points leagues.
