Jayson Tatum ranked sixth in Yahoo Fantasy. Is that too high?

Yahoo Fantasy Sports has the Celtics Jayson Tatum at the sixth spot in their rankings this season. I honestly didn't project that he would be quite so high in the rankings. 



  1. 1. Nikola Jokic
  2. 2. Giannis Antetokounmpo
  3. 3. Luka Doncic
  4. 4. James Harden
  5. 5. Damian Lillard
  6. 6. Jayson Tatum
  7. 7. Karl-Anthony Towns
  8. 8. Paul George
  9. 9. Zion Williamson
  10. 10. Bradley Beal
  11. 11. Stephen Curry
  12. 12. Trae Young
  13. 13. Domantas Sabonis
  14. 14. De'Aaron Fox
  15. 15. Bam Adebayo
  16. 16. LeBron James
  17. 17. Joel Embiid
  18. 18. Julius Randle
  19. 19. Russell Westbrook
  20. 20. Kevin Durant
  21. 21. Fred VanVleet
  22. 22. Donovan Mitchell
  23. 23. Nikola Vucevic
  24. 24. LaMelo Ball
  25. 25. Anthony Davis

My first reaction to the list is that Yahoo expects a bit of a jump for Jayson. But there is also some irony here. Does Tatum and Karl Anthony Towns together at the 6-and-7 spots a sign that the Minnesota big man may team up with Tatum in Boston? 

And JT four spots ahead of his mentor, Bradley Beal, hopefully bodes well for the Celtics star going forward. Also, Jayson ahead of seasoned superstars Lebron James (#16), Kevin Durant (#20) and Anthony Davis (#25) is not exactly back page news either.

My dilemma is - do I take Tatum if I am picking in the top six for my Fantasy team. I am looking to my Fantasy Followers to give me some help. Damn it! I am excited for this season to get started.

The Elm Street Nightmare

 A true-and-suspenseful horror tale of haunting, homicides and the hunt for triple-murderer, Daniel Laplante - as told by the cops that were there By Lt. Thomas Lane (Ret.) and Off. Steven Bezanson (Ret.) Daniel Laplante - cold, calm, clever, calculating- Photo: YouTube   Elm Street  surfaces on four occasions in the Laplante saga: 1.) He  resided on Elm Street  in Townsend, Massachusetts 2.) He  kidnapped a woman  at gunpoint on  Elm Street, Pepperell , Massachusetts 3.) He was arrested and transported to Massachusetts State Police Barracks on Elm Street in Concord . 3.) He was  tried, convicted   and sentenced for the murders at  Superior Court , corner of  Elm Stree t and Gorham Street, Lowell, Massachusetts. When evil and cleverness reside in the same mind, the stage is often set for true horror. Such was the case with triple-murderer, Daniel Laplante . As a 16-year old , he quickly transitioned from: Minor thefts and breaking into homes To: Taunting and threatening a father and

Sign the Petition! Let's honor Tommy Heinsohn

  No longtime Celtics fan can watch games this year without a somewhat heavy heart. For the last 50 plus years, we have been blessed as a franchise to have Tommy Heinsohn, Mr. Celtic himself, as a part of the organization. Whether it be as a player, coach, or commentator, Tommy has been an instrumental figure for the green, and his presence is missed on every broadcast. Nobody embodied what it meant to be a Celtic more than Tommy, and I know I miss his energy and ferocity every time Scal claims the refs "made the right call" against the Cs. While Tommy obviously belongs on the Mount Rushmore of Celtics, he is often overlooked in his place among the greats of NBA history. Looking back upon his life, one would be hard pressed to find someone with a bigger impact on NBA basketball than Mr. Celtic. For those who are unfamiliar, let's do a quick review. Tommy is one of 2 people to be inducted into the Hall of Fame as both a player and coach (the other being the indomitable Len

Using trade exception to acquire Aaron Gordon needs consideration

The Orlando Magic's Aaron Gordon was taken fourth-overall in the 2014 NBA draft, two spots before Boston picked Marcus Smart at #6. I felt at the time that Danny Ainge would have taken Gordon with the sixth pick if the 6'8" power forward was still on the board. Well now, with a $28.5 million trade exception in his hands, it may be time to consider adding the super-athletic wing. Here's why: Brad Stevens feels you can't have enough mid-sized wings Brad Stevens does not favor the "little guys" because they often get mis-matched on defense by taller opponents. He also is not fond of the old-school, big centers. In his mind, they just can't be effective on his switching, perimeter defensive strategies. Gordon's salary fits the trade exception Aaron is set to earn $18.1 million this season and $16.4 million in the 2021-22 season. His salary was front-loaded, and that relatively-low $16.1 million figure kicks in when Jayson Tatum's max contract goes
