Our evening slate brings us 10 more games to work with, and a few teams should eclipse the 80 point mark this evening. Let’s take a look at who we should be considering, and, as always, hit me up on Twitter (@Razzle11Grinds) with any questions you may have!
Isaiah Whitehead – Seton Hall vs. Creighton – $8,800 – Whitehead has been on an absolute tear to finish out the regular season and gets to face a Creighton team that is routinely beaten by guards. Whitehead has gone for 39+ fantasy points in each of his last ten games, while going for 41+ in four straight. He has gone for 47+ in five of those last ten games, as well. The upside is tremendous for Whitehead, and this game should stay pretty competitive.
Trevon Bluiett – Xavier vs. Marquette – $7,500 –Bluiett has torched Marquette for 80 fantasy points in the two meetings so far this season, and with Marquette playing in an up and down game against St. Johns yesterday, I think Xavier takes advantage of them in this one. Bluiett hasn’t been all that impressive lately; however, he is due for a break out, and tonight could certainly be that game.
“Davis should continue to put up solid numbers, and I think he and Bluiett make great options”
Myles Davis – Xavier vs. Marquette – $6,400 – I didn’t want to do it again, but I felt like the spot was just too good to pass up on. Davis should continue to put up solid numbers, and I think he and Bluiett make great options. Davis has 100.5 fantasy points over his last three games, and we have seen Davis go for 50+ over the last month, as he put up a triple-double.
Other Options – Retin Obasohan ($8,400), Shavon Shields ($7,900), Maurice Watson Jr. ($7,500), Jaysean Paige ($6,900), JaJuan Johnson ($6,200)
Brandon Taylor – Utah vs. USC – $5,800 – I really like Taylor again, as he has been playing extremely well and gets an up-tempo match-up with USC. Taylor went for 29 fantasy points the first time these two teams met, and I think he can reach that mark again tonight.
Davon Reed – Miami vs. Virginia Tech – $5,400 –Reed finds himself in the value plays for about the 100th consecutive game, as his price just never seems to change, even though he puts up 20-30 fantasy points. Reed has gone for 56.25 in his two meetings with Virginia Tech this season, with the most recent game coming just 5 days ago. He went for 29 fantasy points in that game.
Justin Robinson – Virginia Tech vs. Miami – $4,600 –Robinson has put up 57 fantasy points over his last two games, one of which was against the same opponent as today. In two games against Miami this year he has gone for 57 fantasy points while shooting 10 of 19 from the field. I think this game plays a little closer than the projected spread, and I would not be surprised to see Virginia Tech upset them for the second time in a week.
Other Options – Tai Webster ($5,800), James Milliken ($5,200), Haanif Cheatham ($5,000), Elijah Stewart ($4,800), Brandon Parrish ($4,700)
Ethan Happ – Wisconsin vs. Nebraska – $7,700 –Happ has been a stellar addition to the Badgers this season, and he was recently voted the Big Ten Freshman of the Year as he beat out a bigger name in Diamond Stone. Happ has shown us a 50 fantasy point upside this season, and Nebraska has been beaten on the interior a TON. Look for Happ to pick up a 20 and 10 double-double in this one.
“He went for 46 the first time these two teams met this season, which bodes well for his projected performance tonight”
Sebastian Saiz – Mississippi vs. Alabama – $7,400 –Saiz has crossed the 40 fantasy point mark twice in his last four games and is coming off of a 45.25 fantasy point performance his last time out. He went for 46 the first time these two teams met this season, which bodes well for his projected performance tonight.
Desi Rodriguez – Seton Hall vs. Creighton – $6,800 –Rodriguez has been one of my favorite plays as he often goes over looked because he plays with Whitehead and Delgado. He recently went for 50 fantasy points against a very tough Xavier team and managed to put up 57.25 fantasy points in the two games against Creighton this season.
Other Options – Jakob Poeltl ($9,600), Henry Ellenson ($9,300), Jameel McKay ($7,500), Angel Delgado ($7,300)
Jordan Loveridge – Utah vs. USC – $5,300 –Loveridge struggled mightily last game out and still managed to finish with 20.5 fantasy points, as he shot just 3 for 14 from the field. I love the pace up for Utah in this one, and I believe we should be using a couple of guys, namely Loveridge and Taylor.
Cole Huff – Creighton vs. Seton Hall – $5,300 –I am not sure what has gotten into Huff lately, and, at this point, I do not care. All I care about is seeing him go out and put up 20+ fantasy points. He has gone for 22+ in five straight games and is coming off of a 43.75 point performance.
Vitto Brown – Wisconsin vs. Nebraska – $5,100 –Brown really turned things around mid-season for the Badgers and has been an extremely efficient scorer for them. He went for 31.75 fantasy points the last time these two teams met, and while he struggled in a tough match-up the last time out, he did manage to go for 25+ in the two previous games.
Other Options – Bennie Boatwright ($5,900), Tomasz Gielo ($5,300), Shannon Hale ($4,500), Quinton Stephens ($4,300), Mike Tobey ($4,100)
