Welcome to Tuesday and let us all welcome in a very impressive slate as we have a handful of games with pretty big totals, which is always a beautiful thing for fantasy purposes! There are plenty of usable options tonight so make sure you find the games you want to focus on and get the best plays from them. Duke, UCLA, Mississippi, and Oregon are going to put up solid point totals, but do not sleep on the offenses of Georgetown, Georgia Tech, and Auburn.
Stefan Moody ($8,700) – Moody takes a ton of shots for Ole Miss and probably has the best shot to reach 40+ fantasy points tonight. He offers us 55+ fantasy point upside which is something we cannot ignore tonight as its going to be a high scoring night.
Alex Hamilton ($8,500) – Hamilton gets to play opposite Moody in what should be an exciting game as the total is set at 149. Hamilton is coming off of a 65 fantasy point game his last time out and while he doesn’t shoot it as much as Moody, he offers more in terms of rebounds and assists. I think Hamilton is my preferred play because he has the higher upside.
Grayson Allen ($8,500) – Allen is in the early conversation for NCAA Player of the Year as he has been putting up some impressive games and is coming off of a nice double double. Allen is extremely active on the boards and offers us 50 fantasy point upside in a game where Duke should have their way. Duke has the highest team total on the night and I want to make sure we get a piece of them.
Kareem Canty ($8,000) – Canty is coming off of a 43 fantasy point performance and has put up a few games like that so far this season. He offers us a ton of upside thanks to his assist rate while also being able to fire away from three point land. This game is expected to be one of the closest of the night and that is key as Canty should be very active on offense.
Other Options – D’Vauntes Smith-Rivera ($7,800), Melvin Johnson ($7,600), Brandon Ingram ($7,400)
Micah Seaborn ($5,600) – This Monmouth team is exciting to watch and they aren’t afraid of taking on big time programs as they have a few wins over power conference teams already this season. I love Seaborn’s price for tonight’s game as he offers us 35+ fantasy point upside and is going to take double digit shot attempts.
Mike Hughes ($4,800) – I know Hughes plays for the team that is expected to put up the lowest total of points while also getting blown out, however he has been extremely consistent as he offers us a floor of about 20 points and a ceiling of about 30. He is not going to go nuts, however we just can’t ignore the points we can count on from Hughes.
Eli Cain ($4,800) – Cain plays a ton of minutes for DePaul and offers us a 30 fantasy point ceiling, but the scary thing is he offers us a floor of about 10 points. Unfortunately DePaul is projected to put up the second lowest point total of the night so we need to temper our expectations, however Cain is definitely a GPP play.
Jordan Strawberry ($4,200) – Strawberry offers us about a 25 point ceiling and seems to be pretty safe to finish with around 20 points tonight which is something I would not complain about at just $4.2K as it will help me roster guys like Hamilton and Long.
Other Options – Kasey Shepherd ($5,400), Adam Smith ($5,200), Dayon Griffin ($5,000), Johnathan Stove ($4,700), Jaron Martin ($3,900), Leantwan Luckett ($3,300), Hayward Register ($3,000)
Shawn Long ($8,700) – Long is the only guy playing tonight that has multiple 50+ fantasy point games so far this season as he has 3 such games. He is a massive rebounder, but I do have my worries about this match-up as he will have to battle with the likes of Parker and Welsh. ULL is expected to put up the third highest total on the night so their points have to come from somewhere and Long has a good shot to be the main part of the offense.
Charles Mitchell ($8,000) – Mitchell is one of my favorite CBB players as he just seems to be so underrated. His price has risen a bit, however I still think he offers the upside we need at this price point. He offers us 50 fantasy point upside while also having a high floor. He has just one game with less than 30 fantasy points on the season and in that game he finished with 29.25 fantasy points. He is probably the safest play of the night.
Tyler Harris ($7,800) – Tyler Harris has been impressive since transferring to Auburn from Providence and is coming off of back to back double-doubles while offering us 45+ fantasy point upside. His price has risen quite a bit since the start of the season, but I feel like he should be around the $8.5K mark.
Erik McCree ($7,700) – LaTech needs McCree to step up even more with the loss of Davis and is coming off of a game in which he took 19 shots. He offers us 45+ fantasy point upside, which is very similar to Tyler Harris. I think Harris is slightly more consistent and with them being so similarly priced, I could see McCree being overlooked.
Dillon Brooks ($7,700) – Brooks has really taken a step forward this season and is the Ducks best player at this point. I know Jordan Bell just returned, however it did not hinder Brooks one bit as he put up 37.75 fantasy points in the last game. He put up 43 in the game prior to that and Oregon should be one of the highest scoring teams of the night.
Other Options – Tony Parker ($7,900), Sebastian Saiz ($7,800), Cinmeon Bowers ($7,600), Mamadou Ndiaye ($6,600), Thomas Welsh ($6,600)
Marcus Derrickson ($5,400) – Derrickson has been playing extremely well for G’Town as he has put up 81.75 fantasy points over his last 3 games. He offers us double-double upside while also having the ability to get hot from three point land. G’Town should be the 3rd or 4th highest scoring team of the night and Derrickson should have a piece of their offense.
Jay Hedgeman ($4,500) – Hedgeman is definitely a GPP play as he offers us a ceiling of about 30 fantasy points to go along with a floor of about 1 if you take a look at his game logs. Hedgeman is is going to take about 7 or 8 shots in his 18-20 minutes of action as he is not afraid to get shots up.
Chris Brady ($4,100) – Brady is somebody I am looking at to stay hot as he is coming off of a 32 fantasy point game while also having 3 other 21+ fantasy point performances on the season. He has multipe block upside with the ability to approach a double-double should he see 22-26 minutes.
Chase Jeter ($3,500) – There is not a ton of game statistics to look at for Jeter, however he is going to need to step up and play some solid minutes for Duke as Amile Jefferson is out for awhile with a foot injury. The nice thing about tonight’s game is the fact that Duke is expected to run away with this so we may see Coach K give Jeter some run to see if he can step in for Jefferson.
Other Options – Marcanvis Hymon ($4,800), Shawn O’Connell ($3,500), Jy’Lan Washington ($3,100)
