As he ascends to the ranks among some of the very best players in the NBA, star Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum will also ascend to the ranks of the very most coveted fantasy basketball players in the league. Key to his value in that reflection of the league in terms of statistics people engage in for fun and profit is his ability to put up the kind of numbers that will justify the likely astronomical draft cost the Celtics star will have in most leagues.

In particular, his surge in assists in the 2021-22 NBA season made him a sexy fantasy option last season, but that trend continuing is key for his value to be maximized in the looming 2022-23 campaign.

The host of the “Locked On Fantasy Basketball” podcast Josh Lloyd recently dove into Tatum’s potential value as a fantasy player with more passing depth being added to the team next season on a recent episode.
