Hope everybody is having an great Saturday as we approach the final slate of the night. We get a 10 game slate to work with and of those 10 games, we get 5 that should finish around 150+ in terms of total points scored. Let’s take a look at who we should be considering and as always, hit me up on Twitter (@Razzle11Grinds) with any questions you may have!
Monte Morris (9,100) – Love using Morris as he continues to basically play every minute and he is as solid of a PG as there is in CBB. He basically turns the ball over once a month at this point and is an extremely efficient shooter. I actually wish he would choose to shoot a little bit more. He is coming off of a 45 fantasy point performance and he is about as safe as they come.
Demetrius Jackson (8,200) – Jackson went for 42.25 fantasy points the last time these two teams met and he did that while shooting just 2 for 11 from the field. He came pretty close to a triple-double in that game and this one is projected to be the highest scoring game of the night. At this point I have to believe that Jackson is going to be part of my core this evening.
Jabril Durham (6,500) – Durham is coming off of a monster 42 fantasy point performance and now he takes on a pretty bad Missouri team this evening. I think a lot of people are going to be afraid of chasing points in this one so I think Durham will be lesser owned than I think that he should be. While I do not think he puts up 42 again, I think the match-up is right for him to get us 30+ thanks to his assist rate.
Other Options – Andrew White III (7700), Isaac Hamilton (7500), Marcus Georges-Hunt (7400)
Josh Perkins (5,700) – I know the match-up is less than ideal, however Gonzaga gets to play at home in this one and they have to be motivated to finish the season strong. Perkins has been playing prety solid basketball over the last few weeks and has been a big time facilitator for the Bulldogs. If he is able to squeeze in a couple extra shot attempts, he should be able to approach 30+ tonight.
Adam Smith (5,600) – Smith went for 34.75 fantasy points the last time out in an ideal match-up and now he gets another ideal match-up as Notre Dame’s defense has been pretty inconsistent this season. This game is going to be the highest scoring of the night and Smith’s price point makes it pretty easy to get a piece of GT in this one.
Jonah Bolden (5,400) – Bolden has played 91 minutes over the last three games which has resulted in a total of 81.5 fantasy points. We have seen his price rise $1K over the three games, however I think he is still very much in play at this price. UCLA should be one of the top handful of teams in terms of points scored tonight.
Christian Sanders (4,300) – I am going back to Sanders one more time as he really hurt me the last time out. He struggled from the field so I hope he bounces back against an extremely fast Washington team.
Other Options – Matt Thomas (5800), Terence Phillips (5600), Robert Johnson (5300), Tyree Griffin (4800)
Domantas Sabonis (9,300) – Sabonis is a big time cash play tonight as he just grinds out double-doubles every night he takes the floor for Gonzaga. He went for 43.75 fantasy points the last time these two teams met, falling just 3 assists short of a triple-double. As I mentioned under Perkins, Gonzaga really needs this one and I think the atmosphere at home is going to be pretty electric.
Moses Kingsley (9,200) – I really like Sabonis, however I can’t ignore what Kingsley has done the last two games as he has put up 88.75 fantasy points and now takes on a Missouri team that just does not scare me one bit. Kingsley should be able to continue his double-double run as Missouri just lacks anybody to compete with him on the glass.
Dillon Brooks (8,200) – I expect Oregon to come out fired up in this one as its a rivalry game against the Beavers and they are going to want to avenge that early season loss to their in-state rivals. The last time he played a pretty decent defense at home he torched Utah for 55 fantasy points so we know the upside is there, even in a tougher match-up.
Marquese Chriss (7,500) – Chriss has definitely figured it out for the Huskies as he has been their best player over the last couple of weeks. The foul trouble will always be a concern for me but he has seemed to learn to play with them a little better as the season has gone on. Washington is one of the fastest teams in the country so you want to get a piece of their offense and Chriss has been the top choice now for a couple of weeks.
Other Options – A.J. Hammons (8500), Zach Auguste (8100), Chris Boucher (7700), Rosco Allen (7500), Jae’Sean Tate (6500), Ryan Rosburg (6000)
Aaron Ross (5,500) – Ross has really been solid for TT and gets to face an OK state team that he went for 34.25 fantasy points against just two weeks ago. Ross has gone for 24+ fantasy points in 5 of his last 6 games and should get there again tonight.
Leyton Hammonds (5,300) – Hammonds has been the biggest beneficiary of Evans’ injury as his usage has gone up quite a bit. He is coming off of a terrible game against Kansas and I can see him being bypassed due to recency bias. Somebody from OK State is going to exceed value and my best is its Hammonds tonight.
Michael Jacobson (4,600) – Finding value on this slate is a bit difficult however Jacobson should be a solid option for Nebraska as the best way to attack Ohio St is on the interior. Jacobson has gone for 19+ fantasy points in 5 straight games. Nebraska is expected to win a close one here so we know that OT is always a possibility in close games.
Other Options – Malik Dime (5300), Kevin Puryear (4700), Evan Fitzner (4500)
