I hope everybody had a great weekend! We get a small slate to kick off our week as we have three games on the board for tonight. The three games give us 5 teams that I believe we have not been able to use yet along with one in which we should all be somewhat familiar with at this point. Monmouth is the top team to take the court tonight and they offer us the highest team total. The team that they take on, Fairfield, is no pushover and this game could be extremely competitive so we will want to start by building our teams around this game. As always, hit me up on Twitter (@Razzle11Grinds)!
Justin Robinson ($8,600) – Thankfully that with such a small slate that include small schools we get a team like Monmouth who we have had the chance to use a few times and we know how explosive they are. Robinson is the number one option on Monmouth and is able to take over games at any point. He has a 50 fantasy point ceiling and should offer a floor of around 30 in this match-up.
Chris Hass ($7,500) – Hass offers us a 50 fantasy point ceiling at a lesser price point than Robinson. The big issue with that is the fact that he is generally very game point dependent and that is tough to justify. Bucknell is expected to put up the second most points of the night so Hass should be in a prime spot and if he catches fire early on, he certainly could be the night’s top scorer.
Other Options – Casey Jones ($7,000), Deon Jones ($6,600), Austin Price ($6,200)
Spencer Collins ($5,800) – Collins is one of those guys that you just have to find a way to roster, even if he is at the higher end of the value tier. He is coming off of a 37.25 fantasy point game and should he shoot the same way in this one, we could be looking at another performance in which he nears 40. Collins generally takes double digit shot attempts and can be lethal from beyond the three point line.
Kyle Leufroy ($4,600) – On a night like this in which we have just three games comprised of smaller schools, we have to find some stability in our lineups and a guy like Leufroy seems to provide that to us as he has been very consistently sitting between 21 and 28 fantasy points for the majority of the last 8 games and Lehigh should be able to put up 75-80 points in this one.
Other Options – Micah Seaborn ($5,500), Greg Pryor ($5,400), Stephen Brown ($4,900), Johnathan Burroughs-Cook ($4,300), Dee Oldham ($3,800), Nate Jones ($3,000)
Tim Kempton ($8,000) – I think Kempton is a bit over priced, however he is probably the best F option of the night as when you take the last game out (foul trouble), you get a guy who is extremely consistent and basically offers a 30 point floor. The part that I do not necessarily like is the fact that he offers a 37 point ceiling and for $8K his ceiling does not even get us the 5x return we are looking for in GPPs. He is a GREAT cash game play tonight.
Marcus Gilbert ($7,500) – I highly suggest dropping down $500 from Kempton to Gilbert as Gilbert offers us a higher upside. He offers us a 50 fantasy point ceiling and he is going to take 30% of Fairfield’s shots when he is on the floor, which at times could see him take around 20 shots.
Other Options – Tre’ McLean ($6,000), Nana Foulland ($6,000)
Chris Brady ($5,000) – I really wish Brady could control some of his fouling and stay on the floor for about 28 minutes some night as he is capable of putting up monster games as he comes off of a 39.75 fantasy point performance in just 19 minutes of action. While he is never going to be the focal point of the offense this season, he offers a strong supporting role and should he continue to play like he has, then they are going to have to find ways to keep him involved.
C.J. Neumann ($4,100) – Neumann is not somebody who is going to blow us away and go for 35+ however he rebounds extremely well and when you hit the boards you can always run yourself into a handful of put backs. I would not call him a cash play as he has the ability to disappear and get into foul trouble, but at just $4.1K I think he makes a solid GPP addition so you can afford a bunch of the top guys.
Other Options – Jesse Chuku ($5,400), Dom Hoffman ($4,300)
