Welcome to another beautiful Sunday of CBB action as we get a slate of 11 games to work with. There is a good chance we are going to see 4 or 5 teams put up 80+ on this slate so there will be plenty of fantasy scoring to go around. Let’s take a look at who we should be considering today and as always, hit me up on Twitter (@Razzle11Grinds)!
Denzel Valentine (10,100) – The big debate for Valentine is whether he is going to need to play enough minutes to hit value as Mich St should run away with this game at home, against a terrible Rutgers team. Valentine is coming off of a 36.5 fantasy point performance in which he didn’t need to do much as they blew out N’Western.
Melo Trimble (7,800) – I am going to back to the Trimble train one last time as he started out hot last time out but then basically did nothing in the second half. Maryland travels to Ohio St to take on a tough Ohio St defense who is toughest on the interior so Maryland is going to have to get great guard play in this one. I expect that play to come from Trimble in this one.
Corey Sanders (7,000) – Sanders has basically been the lone bright spot for Rutgers recently as he has gone for 31+ in four straight games and is coming off of a 38.25 fantasy point game at Michigan, where we all thought they were going to get destroyed. We assume they are going to get run over in this one as well, however Sanders is capable of filling up the stat sheet.
Bryant Crawford (6,700) – Crawford has gone for 93 fantasy points over the last three games and this game is expected to be the highest scoring of the slate. Notre Dame plays a pretty weak perimeter defense which should play into Crawford’s hands.
Other Options – D.J. Balentine (8600), Josh Hart (8000), Fred Van Vleet (7800), Tra Holder (7200), Seth Allen (6400)
George King (5,900) – King has been extremely popular lately as he continues to put up near 30 fantasy point outings. The match-up is far from ideal as Cal has really clamped down on D and King went for just 13.5 fantasy points the last time these two teams met. King has been shooting lights out from beyond the arc and has the look of a future Pac-12 star.
Anthony Clemmons (5,300) – I won’t be going all out with Clemmons, however he deserves some attention as he has gone for 25+ fantasy points in each of the last three games. Iowa is expected to put up one of the highest totals of the slate and by the end of the game we will look up and Clemmons will have his 25+. He should end up getting 30+ minutes of action in this one.
Adam Wing (4,900) – Wing could be an interesting GPP play as he has the ability to put up 25-30 fantasy points in a game that should be extremely competitive. Wichita St will be focused on guys like Balentine and Mockevicious and that could leave Wing alone for some easy jumpers. He is an extremely efficient shooter and plays a ton of minutes for Evansville.
Other Options – Jordan Mathews (5800), Mike Williams (5300), Rex Pflueger (4700), Jalen Hudson (4600), Jalen Coleman-Lands (4300), Malik Ellison (3900), Jordan Hill (3700)
Egidijus Mockevicius (9,900) – Nobody, not even Valentine, has Mocke’s upside on this slate as he is capable of putting up monster rebounding numbers. The big question is to whether he is going to see enough touches on offense as he has shot the ball just 9 times over the last two games. He has managed to go for 70.25 fantasy points over those two games thanks to 21 rebounds, 7 blocks and 4 steals.
Jarrod Uthoff (8,700) – Uthoff is coming off of a very rough performance as he shot just 2 for 13 from the field and finished with 24 fantasy points. I think this is a great bounce back spot for Uthoff and Northwestern has nobody who is going to be able to check him on the offensive end. I also think he is in store for a big game as it has been a couple weeks.
Nigel Hayes (8,300) – Hayes really stepped up for Wisconsin the last game as it pulled off the upset of Indiana as he went for 45.75 fantasy points. He really showed the killer instinct late in the game as he and Happ did their best to completely take over. I like both guys in this match-up as Illinois is pretty weak on the interior.
Bonzie Colson (7,200) – Colson’s price continues to rise, however I really like this game for possible fantasy goodness. I lean Colson over Auguste because he is cheaper and has been playing better over the last couple of weeks.
Other Options – Devin Thomas (9000), Dillon Brooks (8100), Jaylen Brown (8000), Ethan Happ (7700), Keita Bates-Diop (6700)
Adam Woodbury (5,800) – Woodbury has been really consistent and has put up a double-double in three straight games for Iowa. His upside pretty much sits right around 35 fantasy points, however what we are paying for at this price is his consistent 25+ of late. Olah has struggled a bit to find himself since his injury return and the rest of the interior of N’Western is pretty young, so Woodbury should extend his double-double streak in this one.
Kris Jenkins (5,500) – Jenkins has put up 60 fantasy points over his last two games and continues to play really well for Nova when he is on the floor for 30+ minutes of action. The problem is he can find himself in foul trouble at times. I think he is in a great spot against an extremely weak St Johns team.
Deyonta Davis (5,400) – My exposure to Michigan St may consist solely of Davis as he should dominate the paint in this game after showing off in the last game against Northwestern. Davis put up 36.75 points in just 22 minutes of action. While it’s really tough to predict him getting another 6 blocks in this one, I think there is a chance he gets us a double-double in this match-up.
Justin McBride (4,700) – The match-up is less than ideal as UCONN plays a pretty solid defense, however McBride is playing really well for UCF right now and has gone for 52 fantasy points over the last two games and has put up 21+ in 5 out of his last 7 games. A few of those games came against some pretty tough teams, so McBride should be in play.
Other Options – Obinna Oleka (5400), Willie Atwood (5200), Kassoum Yakwe (5100), D.J. Foreman (4900), Shaquille Morris (4500), Kerry Blackshear Jr (4100), Jonathan Laurent (3800)
