Hope everybody enjoyed Monday night’s three game slate and hopefully you guys had some success! Tonight we get a 12 game slate to work with and we also get two Qualifiers for the March Mania tournament. The regular season is winding down for the power conferences and we are going to see some teams playing with some intense heart and determination as they do not want their season to end early. 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!
Buddy Hield, Oklahoma ($10,000) vs Baylor – Hield has a chance to finish the regular season strong and cement his run at the Player of the Year award. He is coming off of a 50.5 fantasy point performance in a loss, look for Hield to show up in a big way on Senior Night. Oklahoma is expected to put up 80+ points in this one and Baylor’s zone could end up playing right into the three point shooting Sooners’ hand.
Jamal Murray, Kentucky ($8,700) vs Florida – Murray put up 47 fantasy points the first time these two teams met and he has scored 21+ game points in 8 straight games. He is coming off of a 47.75 fantasy point performance against a very tough Vanderbilt team. Murray has really shown that he is a future star in the NBA and I believe he isn’t too far behind Ben Simmons in the freshman of the year race as he just continues to put points on the board.
Wade Baldwin IV, Vanderbilt ($7,800) vs Florida – Baldwin went for 40 fantasy points the last time these two teams met and that game came on the road and I expect him to step it up pretty solidly in this home game. Vanderbilt cannot afford to slip up in this game, so I really expect them to take it to a decent Florida team.
Peter Jok, Iowa ($6,700) vs Indiana – I was all over Jok in the last game and he really let me down, but I am going back to him again in an up-tempo game at home. I know I was all about Jok the last time these two teams met and he under performed in that one, but I think he gets back to his 33+ fantasy point performances.
Other Options – Tyler Ulis ($9400), Brandon Ingram ($9100), Marcus Georges-Hunt ($7900), Jalen Jones ($7200), Codi Miller-McIntyre ($6800), Jordan Woodard ($6800), JaJuan Johnson ($6300), Antonio Blakeney ($6300)
Namon Wright, Missouri ($5,500) vs LSU – This game should have the second highest total of the night and we know that LSU is capable of playing very little defense. Wright has a couple of 30+ fantasy point games recently and I expect either he or Phillips to get to 30+ in this one. I like Wright to be the one as I think he has the double-double upside.
Haanif Cheatham, Marquette ($5,300) vs Georgetown – Cheatham has three 32+ fantasy point games in his last 5 as he gets to face Georgetown, who is coming off of an OT Senior Night loss, at home in what could be a let-down spot for Georgetown. Cheatham really struggled in the first match-up, however that was early on in the Big East season and he has definitely grown quite a bit as the season has gone on.
Shembari Phillips, Tennessee ($5,100) vs Vanderbilt – Phillips has gone for 74 fantasy points over his last three games as he has seen his minutes climb with the Tennessee injuries. The match-up is a bit tough, however I really like the way that Phillips is playing. He has put up 38 shots over the last three games so the opportunity will be there for him. This game should end up around 150+ in terms of final points on the board.
Tramaine Isabell, Missouri ($4,600) vs LSU – I like Isabell as a solid GPP option tonight as Missouri is going to need to score a ton to keep up with LSU and Isabell is coming off of back to back 22+ fantasy point games for the Tigers. His price has risen $1200 over the last two weeks, but I think he is still a very solid GPP play at his current price.
Other Options – Adam Smith ($5600), Eli Cain ($5200), Matthews Fisher-Davis ($5000), Jalyn Patterson ($4600), Devon Hall ($4100)
Devin Thomas, Wake Forest ($8,900) vs Duke – Thomas gets an excellent match-up as we already know that Duke struggles in the paint and we also know that Thomas went for 43 fantasy points against Duke the last time these two teams played. Thomas has been a bit up and down over the last month and a half so that makes him a great GPP play as he can explode any night.
A.J. Hammons, Purdue ($8,400) vs Nebraska – Hammons has gone for 35+ in two of his last three games and he managed to put up 62.25 fantasy points as he absolutely dominated the Nebraska interior. I would expect that to be the case again this one as Purdue is expected to win a close one, even though I think they win it rather easily against a weak Nebraska team.
Chinanu Onuaku, Louisville ($7,900) vs Georgia Tech – I really like the match-up for Onuaku in this one as he should control the paint against GT. He went for 38.25 fantasy points the first time these two teams met and I think he should be good for 35+ in this one again. He should be a good bet for a double-double in this one.
Kris Jenkins, Villanova ($6,400) vs DePaul – I really like both Jenkins and Ochefu, but I am leaning towards Jenkins here because he is $1300 cheaper as this game should be over by about half time as Nova should just run DePaul out of the gym. Nova should be one of the highest scoring teams of the night so both Jenkins and Ochefu could definitely make value.
Other Options – Ben Simmons ($11600), Damian Jones ($8000), Dorian Finney-Smith ($7900), Daniel Ochefu ($7700), Luke Kornet ($6900), Tyler Davis ($6300), Adam Woodbury ($6200), Isaac Copeland ($6100)
Devin Robinson, Florida ($5,100) vs Kentucky – Robinson has picked it over the last couple of weeks as his minutes had been on the decline. Robinson has put up 67 points in two of his last three games. The match-up itself is not ideal, however somebody is going to put up some points for Florida as this game is expected to be extremely close as Florida gets to play at home.
Isaiah Wilkins, Virginia ($4,900) vs Clemson – While I know this game is expected to be extremely low scoring, I really like what Wilkins is capable of doing. He is capable of contributing across the board for Virginia and offers us a 30 fantasy point upside. Value options are a bit tough to come by as the season progresses so we have to look in spots we normally wouldn’t and that spot is in this game, with a total projected of just 122.
Quinton Stephens, Georgia Tech ($4,500) vs Louisville – Stephens was a pretty popular value play the last time he took the floor and he disappointed with a 17.75 fantasy point performance and now he gets a tougher match-up. Like I said under Wilkins, value plays are getting tougher and tougher to come by so we have to take some chances and I like the way that Stephens has been playing recently for GT.
Other Options – Ryan Rosburg ($5800), Jeff Roberson ($5400), Deng Adel ($4700), Admiral Schofield ($4700)
