We have our typical 12 game slate on this Tuesday night as we try to figure out what kind of wacky action is going to take place tonight as it seems no team in the top 10 is safe. 10 of the 12 games on the slate have totals projected at or above 140 points so we know it is going to be a high scoring night. Who should we target you might ask? Well, I have the answers for you below! Check it out and make sure to hit me up on Twitter (@Razzle11Grinds) with any questions or comments you may have!
Buddy Hield ($10,200) – Hield has gone for 40+ in eight of his last ten games with a low of 33.25 and a high of 68 over those ten games. Hield is just awesome, that is about all I can say about him as he just continues to perform. He gets the nod over Dunn for me as he basically has the same upside for $700 less. I think he is a must for your cash lineups and always makes a solid GPP option.
Tyler Ulis ($8,600) – Ulis has scored 20+ game points in four straight games and eight out of his last ten and now he gets to take on a defensively challenged Tennessee team. Ulis has 50+ fantasy point upside while also offering us a pretty nice floor of around 32 points in this match-up as his low over the last ten games is 29.75. Kentucky has one of the highest projected team totals so it makes sense to be all over the team’s best player and the one that has the ball in his hands often.
Retin Obasohan ($7,600) – Retin is coming off of a 43 fantasy point performance and has now scored 20+ game points in four straight and eight out of his last nine games. Retin is basically all there is as far as Alabama on the offensive end and he could be in a great spot against a Mississippi St team that doesn’t necessarily play defense on the perimeter.
Derrick Walton Jr. ($7,600) – I never seem to get Walton or Irvin right and I think both of them are in play tonight, however I love Walton’s upside as he is capable of flashing triple-double type stat lines and is able to put up fantasy points in a hurry, even without scoring game points. I think this game is going to be pretty exciting to watch and as long as LeVert is out again, Walton is my favorite play from this game.
Other Options – Kris Dunn ($10,900), Brandon Ingram ($9,200), Roosevelt Jones ($8,400), Yogi Ferrell ($8,300), Tim Quarterman ($7,200), Seth Allen ($6,800), Quinndary Weatherspoon ($6,500), Malachi Richardson ($6,200)
Malik Newman ($5,400) – There’s a lot to like for the Mississippi St back-court and with Ready being questionable with a foot and ankle injury, look for Newman to step up a little more. Ready may play through it but he clearly suffered the last game as he just wasn’t himself. I really like Newman at this price point and he would get an even bigger endorsement should Ready sit this one out.
Adam Smith ($5,200) – Love this match-up for Smith as Duke just does not play with the same defensive intensity that they have in years past. There is a good chance that Smith takes double digit three point attempts in this game and should he be on he could put up nearly 40 fantasy points.
T.J. Lang ($4,500) – I like Lang in this spot as Dunans is out for what could be the season and Auburn is going to need a guy like Lang to step up. Two games ago Lang went for 25.25 fantasy points and the last time out he went for 18.25. Lang is taking 4+ three point attempts per game and I could see him firing up 6-8 of them in this game and if he is on, he could put up a nice stat line for just $4500.
Other Options – Chauncey Collins ($5,200), L.J. Peak ($5,200), Riley Norris ($5,100), Travis Daniels ($3,900)
Ben Bentil ($8,800) – Bentil has been one of my favorite big men in all of CBB this season as he has grown ridiculously well and has an all -around game. He has scored 20+ game points in 8 of the last 10 games with a high of 57 and a low of 27.5. DePaul has absolutely nobody who can match-up with Bentil and this could be a huge game for him on the road in this one.
Jaron Blossomgame ($8,200) – I think this is a pretty strong spot for Blossomgame and his consistency as WF doesn’t exactly defend the interior all too well and can be gotten into foul trouble. I just wish Blossomgame could pull down a double-double instead of always ending just short in the rebound category. Tonight’s the night!
Michael Carrera ($7,500) – This is going to be an interesting match-up as UGA has a pretty solid defense as they are top 20 in the country in terms of 2 pt FG % allowed. Carrera has been as hot as anybody in CBB and has been a beast for the Gamecocks. This is one of those decisions that could make or break a night and I think I am going to be using a bunch of Carrera until he gets to the $8K mark.
Marshall Plumlee ($7,100) – Plumlee has been far from impressive over the last two games, however I think this match-up will allow him to get back on a roll as GT lacks legit size down low and Plumlee should own the glass in this one. GT gives up 55.7% of the points they allow from 2 point shots, so that works into Plumlee’s strength down low.
Other Options – Ben Simmons ($11,100), Jameel McKay ($8,000), Tyler Harris ($7,700), Kelan Martin ($7,400), Tyler Roberson ($6,600), Thomas Bryant ($6,500), Khadeem Lattin ($6,200)
Nick Jacobs ($5,600) – Jacobs has been really solid for GT and right now he is taking the most shots of anybody on the team while he is on the court. He has gone for 24+ fantasy points in 5 of his last 6 games and has taken double digit shots in 6 of his last 7. The opportunity is there for Jacobs and GT gets a tempo boost in this one at home.
Shannon Hale ($5,200) – Hale has taken 34 shots over the last two games and has really stepped as the second option for the Bama offense, behind Obasohan. He has put up 56.5 fantasy points over the last two games and Bama should experience a slight tempo boost for this game.
Horace Spencer ($4,600) – Spencer is an interesting one to keep an eye on as he stepped in for the suspended Bowers and put up 33.75 fantasy points against Oklahoma St. The question is whether or not Bowers will resume his starting role or his normal minutes played. I think Spencer is worth a GPP look, however his minutes are far from guaranteed in this game.
Nathan Adrian ($4,300) – Adrian’s minutes have bumped up thanks to the suspension of Holton and he has put up 35.5 fantasy points over the last two games while playing 49 minutes. The match-up is not ideal, however the tempo of this game alone could help Adrian reach the 20+ fantasy point mark. This is definitely a GPP play and a way to get cheap exposure to the highest scoring game of the night.
Other Options – Bradley Hayes ($5,600), Chris Washburn ($5,400), Mark Donnal ($,4800), Chris Silva ($4,500), Ben Lammers ($4,100), Reggie Cameron ($4,000), Donta Hall ($3,900), O.G. Anunoby ($3,900), Kyle Alexander ($3,700)
