Insight: Faverani had his hands full with Enes Kanter in the first half Wednesday and was benched in favor of Kelly Olynyk in the second. However, the team will stick with the same starting lineup for now.

Description: Celtics center Vitor Faverani had 13 points, three rebounds and three blocks over 27 minutes Wednesday against the Raptors.
Insight: We still need to see how Boston's big-man rotation shakes out when Jared Sullinger makes his season debut after serving a one-game suspension Wednesday, but Faverani should be added in most leagues nevertheless.

Description: Vitor Faverani (back) will start Boston's season-opening game against the Raptors Wednesday.
Insight: Kelly Olynyk is still expected to play a large role off the bench, but Faverani is worth adding in deeper leagues. He had a strong finish to the preseason, averaging 12 points, 5.0 rebounds and 2.0 blocks in just under 22 minutes per game over his last three exhibition games.
