We get a 7 game slate to finish our Saturday of CBB and this slate may end up being the highest scoring of the three as we have 3-5 teams that should be able to put up 80+. I definitely believe we need to target the Arkansas-Tennessee game. Let’s take a look at some of the guys we should be considering and as always, hit me up on Twitter (@Razzle11Grinds) with any questions you may have!
Kyle Collinsworth, BYU (10,400) vs Gonzaga – Collinsworth is coming off of yet another triple-double and the guy just always seems to put up stats across the board. He has gone for 55+ twice in the last three games and while the match-up isn’t the easiest, I think he comes to play in a very important home match-up tonight.
Malcolm Brogdon, Virginia (7,800) vs UNC – Brogdon has gone for 71 fantasy points over the last two games and now gets a very up-tempo UNC team at home. Brogdon is one of my favorite options to use all day long, so not in just this slate but overall. This game is going to be excellent to watch as it means a TON to both teams and when a game has that kind of pressure, the stars generally come to play.
Jaysean Paige, West Virginia (6,700) vs Oklahoma St – Paige has been one of my favorite plays all season long as he offers a pretty nice upside thanks to his ability to rack up steals as they generally lead to fantasy points being put up in a hurry. WVU gets a tempo downgrade in this one so that has me slightly afraid, however Paige has shown the big upside that we need in GPPs.
Other Options – Justin Edwards (7500), Justin Jackson (6700), Jabril Durham (6500), Tim Quarterman (6300), Dusty Hannahs (6100)
Antonio Blakeney, LSU (5,900) vs Florida – Blakeney is stepping up in the absence of Hornsby as he has gone for 64.25 over the last two games, with both of those coming on the road. I think Blakeney is going to be extremely popular, but for excellent reason. Blakeney can get hot from beyond the arc and LSU is expected to win a close one here as they should approach 80 points in this one.
Chauncey Collins, TCU (5,600) vs Baylor – Collins is coming off of a very solid game and we could see him put up in upwards of 8-10 three point shots against the Baylor zone. I generally would avoid TCU here, however with it being at home I think TCU keeps this one close enough to keep it exciting and to allow guys to rack up some fantasy points.
Shembari Phillips, Tennessee (5,300) vs Arkansas – Phillips has put up 54.25 fantasy points over his last two games and is in a great spot against an up-tempo Arkansas team. Without Punter it is extremely tough to predict how Tennessee’s rotation and usage rates are going to go. Phillips has played 74 minutes over the last two games, so he is going to get locked into my lineups instantly.
Other Options – Tarik Phillip (5800), Josh Perkins (5500), KeVaughn Allen (5300), Robert Hubbs III (4900), Barry Brown (4800), Zac Seljaas (4500), Tavarius Shine (4200)
Domantas Sabonis, Gonzaga (9,500) vs BYU – Sabonis has been one of my favorite big men to play whenever Gonzaga is on the slate as he is just a walking monster double-double machine. I know Sabonis struggled with foul trouble the last time these two teams met and if you pair that with his price, I think he goes extremely low owned tonight and I am just fine with that.
Moses Kingsley, Arkansas (9,400) vs Tennessee – Kingsley has been extremely solid for Arkansas over the last month and now he gets to face an under sized Tennessee front line and he should dominate the paint in this one. I do think I like Kingsley more than Sabonis for $100 cheaper as the match-up is just extremely juicy and this game is expected to be the highest scoring of the slate.
Other Options – Ben Simmons (11400), Brice Johnson (10000), Armani Moore (8600), Abdel Nader (7600), Johnathan Motley (6600)
Leyton Hammonds, Oklahoma St (5,300) vs West Virginia – Hammonds offers us a 35 fantasy point upside since the loss of Evans and he certainly could benefit from the wide open press style of West Virginia. I think Hammonds should be priced a bit higher than this and he makes a great GPP option for just $5300.
J.D. Miller, TCU (4,900) vs Baylor – Miller has really shown his upside recently as he has stepped into the starting lineup and has put up 62.25 fantasy points over the last two games. I am not sure how he attacks the Baylor zone, however he has shown the kind of upside we need in GPPs and I will definitely have some of him as TCU should keep this one closer than expected.
Other Options – D.J. Johnson (5100), Devin Robinson (5000), Trey Thompson (4300), Justin Leon (4200)
