Welcome to today’s CBB Targets article where we will take a look at some Stud and Value plays from this evening’s 4 game slate. Three of the games have a pretty nice looking over/under so they should offer us some decent fantasy plays!
Monte Morris ($8,300) – I feel like Morris is the top overall option of the slate and he happens to play in the game with the highest over/under. The Battle in Iowa has an over/under of 157 which tells us that there should be some fantasy goodness. Morris has some competition on his own team for the top overall play, however its tough to ignore the guy that has the ball in his hands all the time. I believe Morris is the safest of the Iowa St players tonight.
Malcolm McMillan ($7,400) – McMillan has struggled a bit recently however he has shown 50 fantasy point upside so far this season and I honestly feel like this is a game that McMillan and Canisius can win as Penn St is nothing special for a power conference team.
Shep Garner ($7,300) – I know I just mentioned that Penn St is nothing special, but they are led by two guys who should do most of the work in Garner and Taylor. Garner has been playing his best ball over the last few games and is willing to fire up double digit shots from deep. He is shooting the three ball at a 47% clip so far this season and when he gets hot, look out!
Other Options – Isaiah Whitehead ($7,700), Wesley Person ($6,900), Jeremy Hollimon ($6,000)
Jamal Reynolds ($5,900) – Reynolds has been extremely consistent this year and rebounds extremely well for a “G”. Like I said earlier, I think Canisius has a shot in this game and somebody like Reynolds is really going to have to step up.
Peter Jok ($5,400) – I wish I knew why Jok’s minutes fluctuate so much as it can be extremely disappointing as he puts up really solid numbers when he gets a full starters complement of minutes. Jok does play in the game with the highest over/under so I would say he’ll be getting full minutes and he should be able to pay off his salary.
Daniel Peace ($4,000) – Peace does a little bit of everything for Troy and while he may not offer us 30 fantasy point upside, he has a shot to return 4-6x on his salary in a game with the second highest over/under of the night.
Other Options – Kassius Robertson ($5,400), Schane Rillieux ($3,900), Johnathan Bell ($3,500), Chris Atkinson ($3,000)
Georges Niang ($8,500) – Niang is coming off of a monster double-double and I think that continues in this game. Normally I am all over his teammate, McKay who I think will be solid, however I think Niang offers us the highest ceiling in this game. This guy can get hot from anywhere on the court.
Jarrod Uthoff ($7,900) – Iowa needs Uthoff to have a really good game to have a chance in this one as Iowa State should be too tough for them. Uthoff offers us 50 point upside while also offering us a very safe floor.
Ja’Dante’ Frye ($7,300) – Frye has gone for 34+ fantasy points in 5 straight games and is Nicholss’ best scoring threat in this one. This game has the lowest over/under on the slate, however somebody has to score the points and Frye is the best option in this game.
Other Options – Jameel McKay ($8,500), Angel Delgado ($7,600), Brandon Taylor ($7,500), Phil Valenti ($7,200)
Michael Nzei ($4,900) – Nzei stepped into the starting lineup last time out and put up a nice double-double and is a steal at just 4.9K while he is getting starters minutes on a team that should put up a decent amount of points as Seton Hall should be the second highest scoring team of the night.
Dom Uhl ($4,800) – Uhl is extremely effective in about 20 minutes of action and Iowa is going to need him to come in and be on fire when he hits the court. He has 63.5 fantasy points over his last two games and all we need is about 26 points for him to hit value in our GPPs.
Jermaine Crumpton ($4,200) – Crumpton is another guy that plays extremely well when he gets 20+ minutes of action. He is not quite as efficient as Uhl is, however he does not need to be at $600 cheaper. Crumpton offers us 30 fantasy point upside when all we need him to hit is about 22 points for our tournaments.
Other Options – Angelo Chol ($3,900), Liam Thomas ($3,900), John Walton III ($3,600)
