Our Saturday afternoon CBB slate brings us 7 games and this slate should actually have some higher game totals than the early slate as we get a couple of games that should land in the 150-160s. Let’s take a look at who stands out on this slate and as always, hit me up on Twitter (@Razzle11Grinds) with any questions you may have.
Retin Obasohan, Alabama (8,300) vs Auburn – I instantly gravitated to Obasohan in this one as Auburn is absolutely terrible on the defensive end of the floor. Obasohan could go for 50+ in this one as Alabama is expected to be one of the highest scoring teams of the slate. Obasohan always seems to go over looked as Alabama is not generally a team people want to target.
Jalen Jones, Texas AM (7,100) vs Missouri – Jones went for 30.25 fantasy points against Missouri the last time these two teams met and that could have been a monster game had he been able to make a few more shots as he went just 5 for 14 from the field. Jones went for 40 just two games ago against a very tough Kentucky team so we know the upside is there in this game.
Rasheed Sulaimon, Maryland (6,300) vs Purdue – Sulaimon is always an interesting GPP option as he can take over for stretches and just knock down shot after shot. He is coming off of a blah performance as he put up just 18 fantasy points, however he had gone for 29+ in the four games prior to that and one of those games was a 35.5 fantasy point performance against the same Purdue team he faces this afternoon.
Other Options – Tyler Ulis (9600), Demetrius Jackson (8300), Isaac Hamilton (7400), Dwayne Bacon (7300), Billy Garrett Jr. (6800)
Devon Bookert, Florida St (5,200) vs Notre Dame – Bookert is shooting the lights out from beyond the arc this season and Notre Dame generally forgets to play defense. FSU is expected to be the highest scoring team of the slate so we will want to get a piece of them and of this game in general as Notre Dame is expected to be the second highest scoring team of the slate.
Matthew Fisher-Davis, Vanderbilt (4,800) vs Kentucky – MFD has gone for 21+ fantasy points in five straight games and while this match-up is far from ideal, I think Vanderbilt wins a close one against Kentucky here as this one should end up with around 150 points on the scoreboard. MFD can get hot from deep and should he be able to, he can rack up fantasy points in a hurry.
Other Options – Namon Wright (5700), Eli Cain (5200), Rapheal Davis (5000), Bryce Brown (4700), K.J. Walton (4100)
Ben Bentil, Providence (9,000) vs DePaul – Bentil busted out a 46.5 fantasy point performance the last time out as he seemed to shake off some rust from his ankle injury. Speaking of ankle injury, the last time he faced DePaul is when he rolled his ankle and he had to exit after just 14 minutes. Bentil offers us basically a 70 fantasy point upside as he has the best PG in the nation feeding him the ball. Providence should be the third highest scoring team of the slate.
Damian Jones, Vanderbilt (8,000) vs Kentucky – I may be one of the few that really likes Damian Jones in a tough match-up against Kentucky. Jones has put up 83.25 fantasy points over his last two games and gets to face a Kentucky interior that has really dealt with injuries of late, which can only benefit a guy like Jones. I think Jones is an Elite GPP type play on this slate.
Robert Carter, Maryland (7,400) vs Purdue – While I really wish Carter was slightly cheaper he is coming off of a 30 fantasy fantasy point performance and he went for 40.25 against Purdue the last time these two teams faced off. I think Carter goes pretty under owned as Purdue is generally looked at as an elite type defense.
Other Options – A.J. Hammons (8300), Zach Auguste (8300), Cinmeon Bowers (8000), Rosco Allen (7500), Tyler Davis (6300), Michael Humphrey (6100)
Horace Spencer, Auburn (5,500) vs Alabama – Spencer is a walking foul, however all he does is produce fantasy points when he is on the floor as he has put up 88 fantasy points over his last three games while playing just 69 minutes. Foul trouble is always going to scare me, however I think Spencer’s upside make him a GPP play and one that could certainly win you a GPP, even with his price jump.
Shannon Hale, Alabama (4,800) vs Auburn – Hale returned to the starting lineup recently and that is a good thing to see as he was putting up very solid performances up until he got hurt. He went for 21.5 the last time these two teams met and he offers us a ceiling around 35 fantasy points in a match-up with an ultra-weak Auburn interior. The Auburn interior fouls a ton, which could lead to Hale finding his way to the foul line early and often.
Other Options – Kevin Puryear (5100), Jordan Granger (5000), Jeff Roberson (5000), Boris Bojanovsky (4700)
