Wednesday night brings us a 13 game slate in which we need to research. Luckily for you I have spent hours already looking ahead at the slate and was able to locate some plays that I think you need to consider. We have ten teams expected to score 75+ points on the night so there should be plenty of scoring to go around. Make sure you find the games you want to target and get a piece of it. For the rest of your lineup, take a look at some of the guys you NEED to be considering tonight!
Andrew Andrews ($9,800) – Andrews has gone for three 53+ point games over his last 5 games and is playing as well as anybody in the country at this point in the season. This game is projected to be one of the closest games of the night and the total could approach the 160’s by the time the game comes to an end. Colorado does not have anybody to contain Andrews.
Demetrius Jackson ($8,300) – Notre Dame is expected to be the second highest scoring team on the night and Jackson has been playing extremely well of late for the Irish. He has gone for 33+ in five straight games, with three of those games being 41+. Va Tech looks to play pretty fast and Notre Dame does not mind doing that, so look for Jackson to have the ball in his hands a ton.
J.J. Frazier ($7,800) – This game is going to be pretty ugly and generally I would be avoiding it completely, however tonight I think Frazier makes an interesting GPP option as he has 50 fantasy point upside and is coming off of a terrible 10.5 point performance. He went for 32.5 points against Missouri the last time these two teams played and I expect him to best that performance tonight.
Malik Beasley ($7,200) – I generally go with the cheaper of Bacon and Beasley and tonight that player is Beasley as he offers us 40 fantasy point upside and while the match-up might be a little tougher, he is one of the best players in this game and should be able to approach the 35-40 point mark. Beasley offers us double-double upside.
Other Options – Gary Payton II ($10,000), Dejounte Murray ($8,100), Fred VanVleet ($7,900), Josh Hart ($7,800)
Robert Hubbs III ($5,400) – Hubbs is one of those guys that really is not going to kill you, but he is not going to go nuts and return like 8x for you. He is a safe bet to land between 21 and 27 points in a game that is expected to be very close and play into the 150’s. He is generally over looked and while there may be some around this price point with a higher upside, there are none with a higher floor.
Barry Brown ($4,900) – Brown struggled the last time out as he shot just 1 for 10 from the floor and finished with just 16.75 fantasy points. Prior to that game he had gone for 25+ in four straight games with a high of 34.5. He has solidified 26-30 minutes a night and is taking double digit shot attempts per game at this point in the season. Kansas St is not expected to put up many points, however Brown is just too cheap to ignore his usage.
Justin Bibbs ($4,800) – Bibbs is so tough to figure out as he has a scorers mentality at times and then at others he seems to care less about playing. This game is expected to be extremely high scoring and with that we could see Bibbs near his upside, which sits around 40 fantasy points and he has gotten there twice over the last ten games.
Eric Davis Jr. ($4,100) – The match-up is far from ideal, however we have seen Davis Jr. step up in games this season and he certainly could do that against the press of WVU. He has put up 40.75 fantasy points over his last two games and could find himself open for some transition threes should Texas be able to break down the WVU press.
Other Options – Wes Clark ($5,600), George King ($5,400), Derrick Gordon ($4,800), Detrick Mostella ($4,800), Justin Robinson ($4,400)
Josh Scott ($9,700) – If Andrews was not on such a hot streak, Scott would be my top overall option as he should be able to abuse the young interior of the Huskies in this game. Scott has a double-double in four straight games and should make it five in this match-up. He is never a sexy pick as he just goes about his business and works harder than anybody else on the floor. At the end of the night you will look up and see 40+ points from him.
Tony Parker ($7,900) – Parker looked dominant in the last game as he was demanding the ball on offense and hitting the boards hard on defense. I look for that to carry over in this game as Oregon St will be without one of their big bodies down low after he was suspended for intentionally tripping a referee. Parker has the ability to go for 50 fantasy points and we actually get him at a $100 decrease after a big 45 fantasy point performance.
Zach Auguste ($7,700) – This just has the feeling of a Zach Auguste game as Va Tech really does not have anybody other than LeDay down low and Auguste could certainly bust out here. The tough part is the fact that ND has been getting excellent contributions from everybody lately and you are going to have to make sure to get exposure to a few of the guys. I look for Auguste to go for 40+ in this one.
Chinanu Onuaku ($7,400) – Onuaku has been on a roll for Louisville and I do not see anybody in FSU’s lineup that will slow him down tonight. He has gone for 33.5+ in four straight games and has been at 23+ in each of his last ten games. He has five straight double digit rebounding games and continues to block multiple shots every time out.
Luke Kornet ($6,900) – Kornet recently put up a triple-double thanks to a career high 10 blocks and should be able to control the glass pretty well in this one as Tennessee lacks any kind of size to push Kornet around on the interior. Kornet is not a huge part of the offense for Vandy but is capable of getting a number of easy offensive put backs.
Other Options – Brice Johnson ($9,200), Devin Thomas ($9,100), Zach LeDay ($8,200), Bonzie Colson ($6,600)
Noah Dickerson ($5,300) – Coming into the season I thought Dickerson was really going to break out and be a really solid DFS option. He has struggled for most of the season but has put up 72.5 fantasy points over his last three games while averaging about 28 minutes per game. He unfortunately commits a lot of fouls so that is something to be careful of, however I really like the way he is playing and at the end of the game I would expect to see him around 25 fantasy points in a high scoring game.
Terry Maston ($4,600) – Maston is playing really well for Baylor and should continue to see 20+ minutes while he is producing. He has gone for 53 fantasy points over the last two games and has put up 30 shots from the field over the last three. At this price point you have to love seeing a guy getting double digit shot attempts a game.
Drew Eubanks ($4,400) – This one is more of a gut feeling as they will need somebody to take a few minutes to cover up for Reid being suspended and I think Eubanks could be a small surprise in this game. He has not done a ton recently but had some nice games early in the season and two weeks ago managed to put up 23.5 fantasy points.
Other Options – Desi Rodriguez ($5,400), Joey King ($5,300), Kerry Blackshear Jr. ($4,700), Mark Donnal ($4,500), Derek Ogbeide ($4,100)
