Tuesday night CBB brings us a 13 game slate full of a lot of fantasy action as we have a number of games projected to surpass the 140 point mark with a couple of games looking like they should threaten the 160 point mark. I hope everybody is enjoying the battle to win their seat to the March Mania Tournament as each night seems to be pretty tightly contested. Make sure you check out the awesome Head-to-Head tournament idea. Let’s take a look at some of the guys we should be targeting and as always, hit me up on twitter (@Razzle11Grinds)!
Tyler Ulis ($8,600) – Even though this is a tough match-up for UK, I really think Ulis is in a solid spot as he is going to be relied on to score as well as set up some of his big men for some easy dunks/lay ups. The Georgia D is pretty solid, however a guy with Ulis’ skill set can definitely beat them.
Trevon Bluiett ($8,000) – Bluiett put up 47.75 fantasy points in his last game while only playing a total of 28 minutes due to foul trouble. I really love this match-up for him as Creighton is terrible at defending the perimeter and Bluiett is capable of knocking down numerous shots from the outside and then using that hot hand to get passed defenders and to the rim.
Tre Demps ($6,900) – Demps has put up 92.25 fantasy points over the last two games and while I do not expect that to continue, I expect him to continue to put up shots at a ridiculous rate. The nice thing about Demps is that he is not afraid to keep shooting, even if he is off to start the game. Now I do expect him to come back down to earth in terms of fantasy production, but some times you have to take a shot at a hot hand.
Quinndary Weatherspoon ($6,600) – Weatherspoon has really grown since the start of the season and while he is coming off of a couple mediocre performances, I think he fits this game perfectly as Mississippi St should see a tempo boost in this one. He struggled from the field the last time these two teams met, however he did managed to put up 13 shots in that game so that tells me he was looking to be aggressive.
Other Options – Denzel Valentine ($10,200), Kevin Punter ($9,200), Charles Cooke ($7,900), Malcolm Brogdon ($7,800), Joel Berry II ($6,700), Jaysean Paige ($6,500), Jaquan Lyle ($6,400), Myles Davis ($6,100)
Rasheed Brooks ($5,600) – Brooks is coming off of a 36.75 fantasy point performance and managed to put up 30 the last time these two teams met. Brooks has been one of my favorite plays since conference play started up as he is extremely talented and has been very consistent. He offers us a double-double upside thanks to his ability to hit the boards.
KeVaughn Allen ($5,100) – Allen has struggled a bit over his last two as he has put up just 30 fantasy points total in the two games. Allen went for 40.5 fantasy points the last time these two teams met so we know the upside is there for Allen. The tough part is trying to figure out who is going to go off from the back court of the Gators. I really like Allen for his price.
TJ Lang ($4,900) – Lang is an interesting play as Auburn’s top scorer, Canty, has been suspended and with Dunans out, somebody has to step up in the back court for the Tigers. Lang gets a pretty decent price jump, without coming off of a big performance. Both Lang and Brown make solid options.
Sammy Barnes-Thompkins ($3,900) – SBT has a foul problem, however at just $3.9K he makes an excellent option as he has passed the 20 fantasy point mark the last two games as he continues to fill in for an injured Robinson. The last two games have been pretty tough match-ups as he has faced both Louisville and Virginia on the road.
Other Options – Malik Newman ($5,500), Bryn Forbes ($5,400), J.P. Macura ($4,900), Bryce Brown ($4,700), Darrick Wood ($4,300), Anthony Lawrence Jr. ($3,000)
Brice Johnson ($9,700) – There’s not much to say about Johnson that I haven’t said already this season as he has just been a beast for UNC. He continues to put up double-double after double-double and has really shoved his way into National Player of the Year conversations, even though I think he is pretty well behind guys like Hield and Simmons.
Dorian Finney-Smith ($8,400) – DFS continues to be one of my favorite plays as he has just been extremely consistent. He has gone for 32+ fantasy points in 9 out of his last 10 games and has actually gone for 36+ in 8 of those 9 games. He has scored 20+ game points in 5 of his last 6 games and should be able to make it 6 of his last 7 tonight.
Kris Jenkins ($6,700) – Jenkins continues to put up 32+ fantasy points in the absence of Ochefu. We have not learned Ochefu’s status for this game yet so we will want to monitor it. Should Ochefu miss another game, Jenkins sticks as a top play and should Ochefu play, I think we can still use Jenkins and get him at a lower ownership %.
Other Options – Moses Kingsley ($9,300), Perry Ellis ($8,300), Devin Williams ($7,700), Myke Henry ($7,100), Vince Edwards ($6,500)
Derek Willis ($5,800) – Willis has come back down to earth a bit recently and I think that will keep his ownership pretty low in a tough match-up with Georgia. We get him back under $6K which is nice to see and add in the fact that Poythress is questionable and I think we have a sneaky option in Willis.
Marcanvis Hymon ($5,300) – Hymon is going to be dependent on the status of Saiz as he has been cleared to return but it is not known if he is going to be ready to go. Hymon has been a very popular pick with Saiz out and he has shown us 40 fantasy point upside. Make sure to monitor this game because Ole Miss could be a source of some solid value plays.
Darryl Reynolds ($5,100) – Reynolds is the main beneficiary of Ochefu’s status as he has really stepped up, especially on the boards. He is coming off of a 43 fantasy point performance and while I would not expect to see him get to that level, I think he should be able to finish around 30 fantasy points as long as Ochefu remains out.
A.J. Turner ($4,400) – I think you can go with either Turner or Owens at this point for BC as they both have stepped up recently and have been solid in terms of DFS. Turner went for 24.75 fantasy points the last time these two teams met and could certainly be a big part of their attack as they try to pull off the big upset.
Other Options – Tomasz Gielo ($4,800), Horace Spencer ($4,700), Nathan Adrian ($4,500), Garland Owens ($4,400), Skal Labissiere ($4,200), Eric James ($3,900)
