Why Kelly Olynyk is a steal pickup

The Boston Celtics center Kelly Olynyk is a must have in all fantasy basketball leagues. Olynyk has been on a tear lately and head coach Brad Stevens has hinted at a promotion to the starting lineup.

 The fourth year center is putting up solid numbers lately and should be heavily considered in fantasy leagues. Olynyk is averaging 8.6 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 2.1 assists this season. Those stats do not jump off the table at you, but that's exactly why you need Olynyk.

Olynyk put up 26 points and 8 rebounds on the Atlanta Hawks. Then scored 15 points and 9 rebounds in just 26 minutes against the Charlotte Hornets. Olynyk is heating up, but if you just look at this season averages you will be mislead. Even if Olynyk does not become a starter he has enough fantasy value worth picking him up.
