Welcome to Tuesday night as we get a beautiful 10 game slate for us to dissect and enjoy this evening. There should be a decent amount of scoring in tonight’s slate, so we will want to make sure we take advantage of some of the match-ups as well as some of the hot hands. If you have any questions or concerns after checking out today’s article, make sure you hit me up on Twitter (@Razzle11Grinds)!
Kahlil Felder ($10,100) – Felder is obviously a stud play as he continually puts up 50+ fantasy points and manages to do it all for Oakland out on the court. What scares me is the fact that we need him to hit 50+ in order to pay off his price in GPPs. This is definitely a tough match-up, however if Oakland wants to pull the upset they will need Felder to be on top of his game and to approach 60 fantasy points, which he is certainly capable of doing.
Buddy Hield ($8,500) – There is quite a bit of talk about Hield being one of the front-runners for player of the year and that is something I cannot argue against as he has been excellent so far this season. Over his last two games he has put up 90.75 fantasy points and a month ago he managed to show us what his ceiling is as he went for 55 fantasy points against Memphis. Oklahoma is expected to put up the most points of the evening and Hield should be in the middle of most of them.
Trevon Bluiett ($7,600) – Bluiett is coming off of a couple of rough games, however he has 50 fantasy point upside and gets to play in one of the more competitive games of the night against Wake Forest. Xavier is expected to put up 80+ points tonight and I expect Bluiett to go for 20+ of those points and to approach 10+ rebounds in this one.
Malcolm Brogdon ($7,300) – Brogdon gets to take on a Cal team that wants to get up and down the floor while not playing much defense at all. He is coming off of a 37.75 point performance against Villanova and has shown us he is capable of nearing 50 fantasy points any given night.
Other Options – Nick Faust ($7,300), Kory Holden ($7,100), Cazmon Hayes ($6,700), Bryn Forbes ($6,100)
Sterling Brown ($5,600) – Brown has stepped up recently with the injuries to the SMU team and should guys continue to be out tonight, I think Brown makes an excellent play in your lineups. He has put up 74.25 fantasy points over the last two games and should be in a great spot to offer us a floor of nearly 25 points tonight.
Kellon Thomas ($5,300) – Thomas recently showed us 41+ fantasy point upside and that makes it extremely hard to ignore him at this price point. The downside is that he does offer us a pretty low floor which is always scary, however that makes him a perfect GPP play as he should take double digit shots in this game with around half of them coming from three.
Matt Thomas ($5,300) – Thomas went cold in the last game after having eclipsed the 30 fantasy point mark in the 2 games prior to that. Thomas gets his shot to really stop up with the loss of Long for the season and as we have recently seen, Thomas can get white-hot from three point land and put up fantasy points in a hurry.
Anthony Mosley ($3,000) – At just $3K you can get Mosley who may play the entire game and offers us 27+ fantasy point upside, how can we not take advantage of that? Mosley does have a pretty low floor as he doesn’t do anything particularly well, however he should be able to account for a handful of stats and has 15 in-game point upside.
Other Options – Malik Milton ($5,200), Charles Callison ($4,700), J.P. Macura ($4,500), Mikal Bridges ($4,500), Deonte Burton ($4,000), Jaylin Walker ($3,000)
Devin Thomas ($9,100) – Thomas is an absolute beast and he happens to be coming off of a terrible performance in which he fouled out early. I think he bounces back big time and gets back near his 50+ fantasy point performances. The Xavier interior are very susceptible to fouls and I think Thomas has a chance to absolutely dominate the paint in this one.
Georges Niang ($8,500) – Niang is coming off of a 47 fantasy point performance and showed us earlier this month that he has 60 point upside. The match-up tonight is a difficult one however I do not see any of Cincinnati’s front court being able to hang with Niang out on the perimeter and he may be able to drive on them as well. Normally I like McKay more than Niang but this match-up has me leaning the other way.
Josh Hawkinson ($8,300) – Hawkinson is ultra consistent and even though he seems to lack an extremely high ceiling, he offers us a very high floor as we know we should get about 35-40 fantasy points from him even though Washington St is expected to get beat pretty easily by Oklahoma tonight.
Jordan Tolbert ($7,600) – Tolbert has been a beast since Kennedy went down and I think that continues tonight against a weak Kent St team. Tolbert has 38 points and 42 rebounds over his last two games and managed to double-double in both of them during the first half. He has scored 98 fantasy points in those games and could certainly approach 50 again tonight.
Caleb Swanigan ($7,200) – Swanigan has been playing excellent basketball of late and I think people tend to forget about him on a team that has Hammons, Haas and Davis. Over his last 4 games, Swanigan has gone for 42.25, 30.75, 40.5 and 37.5 fantasy points. He has 70 points and 42 rebounds in those 4 games and while tonight might be a tougher match-up against Vandy, I think he will get overlooked as Vandy tries to contain the size of Hammons and Haas.
Other Options – Jameel McKay ($8,200), Ben Moore ($7,300), Damian Jones ($7,200), Jalen Hayes ($6,700), Anthony Gill ($6,500)
Khaliq Spicer ($4,800) – Spicer is definitely a GPP play tonight as he played just 7 minutes in his last game. He does offer us 35+ fantasy point upside and he has a number of games so far this season in which he has put up 22+ fantasy points. If you are making multiple lineups tonight I would certainly have Spicer in one of them due to his upside.
Dusan Ristic ($4,800) – Ristic seems to be getting more and more comfortable in the starting lineup for Arizona as he went for 20 game points the last time out, which lead all Arizona scorers. Ristic has been very consistent lately and should be able to get us around 25-28 fantasy points in this game which is more than he needs to pay off his price.
Chris Ortiz ($4,400) – Ortiz is coming off of a 31 fantasy point game and went for 35 points earlier in the season. Kent St is going to need Ortiz to work the glass against guys like Moore and Tolbert tonight if they want to have any chance at pulling the upset. Ortiz doesn’t seem to foul much and should see 25-28 minutes of action tonight.
Isaiah Wilkins ($4,100) – Wilkins has seen an uptick in minutes and is coming off of playing 30 minutes in the last game against Villanova. Wilkins does not do a ton offensively, however he contributes in every category and has approached 22 fantasy points recently. I think Wilkins has a good shot to get us 18-25 fantasy points which is just fine at $4.1K.
Other Options – Khadeem Lattin ($4,600), Roschon Prince ($4,000), Kenny Goins ($4,000), Angelo Chol ($3,500), Carlton Bragg Jr. ($3,500)
