Welcome to the last Saturday of the CBB regular season as some conference tournaments have gotten underway and the major conferences are finishing up their regular season conference schedules. We have a 14 game slate to work with, so there is going to be plenty of options for us to use. Six of the fourteen games are projected to see 150+ points put on the scoreboard. 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!
Tyler Ulis, Kentucky ($9,600) vs LSU – Ulis got back to the 40+ fantasy point mark in the last game on the road against Florida and is in a better spot in this game as he gets to face an up-tempo, defensively challenged LSU team at home. Ulis offers us 50+ fantasy point upside and I think he is pretty safe for 38+ in this one as he went for 33 the last time these two teams met. This game is expected to be the highest scoring game of the slate.
Stefan Moody, Mississippi ($9,200) vs Tennessee – Moody is coming off of his second 57.5 fantasy point game in his last three as he absolutely torched Mississippi St on Senior Night for Ole Miss. Moody has not met a shot that he didn’t like and while this game is on the road, Tennessee does not present much of a defense for Moody and I could see him putting up 20+ shots in this one. This game should finish in the top 3 as far as most points scored.
Trevon Bluiett, Xavier ($7,400) vs Creighton – Bluiett has cracked the 30 fantasy point marker just once in his last six games and faces a team that he managed to put up just 12.25 against. Xavier is expected to be the second highest scoring team of the slate and I think Bluiett goes under-owned compared to what he is capable of doing for us. I think he goes out and gets us 35-40 fantasy points.
Malachi Richardson, Syracuse ($6,600) vs Florida St – Richardson has been pretty up and down lately but today he gets to face a Florida St team that he put 38.5 fantasy points on the board against earlier this season. Syracuse gets the tempo boost in this one and while I do not mind Gbinije, I really want to take the savings and go with Richardson who has shown some impressive games so far this season.
Other Options – Kris Dunn ($10,100), Anthony Barber ($9,300), Jamal Murray ($8,800), Wade Baldwin IV ($7,800), Maurice Watson Jr. ($7,500), Craig Sword ($6,900), JaJuan Johnson ($6,500), Kellen Dunham ($6,300), Antonio Blakeney ($6,100), Bryn Forbes ($6,000)
Adam Smith, Georgia Tech ($5,500) vs Pittsburgh – Smith went off for 30 game points the last time these two teams met as he went 8 for 13 from three point land in that one. That game was on the road and today he gets to take his shooting to his home court. Thanks to his shooting, Smith offers us a 40 fantasy point upside at just $5500.
Caleb Martin, NC State ($5,500) vs Notre Dame – Martin has gone for 21+ in five his last six games and seven of his last ten. This game should see 150+ points put up on the scoreboard so we know that there is going to be some fantasy goodness to be had and Martin is a cheap way of getting a piece of it. He offers us a 35+ point upside and I think he is pretty safe for 22+ in this one.
Shembari Phillips, Tennessee ($5,500) vs Mississippi – I think it is safe to say I really like the $5500 price point today as Phillips has been very solid since stepping into the lineup. Phillips has gone for 108.25 fantasy points in his last four games and has seen his minutes climb to roughly an average of 36 per game over those last four. We know that this game should be one of the highest scoring of the slate and Phillips should offer us a pretty solid value.
Bryce Brown, Auburn ($4,200) vs Mississippi St – Brown has struggled with his shot lately, however that has not stopped him from recording double-digit shot attempts in 8 of his last 9 games. He has shown us a 30+ fantasy point upside and while this game should not be all too competitive, I think Brown has a chance to knock down a handful of threes.
Other Options – Durand Johnson ($5,400), Haanif Cheatham ($5,300), Kyron Cartwright ($5,200), Daxter Miles Jr. ($4,600), Jalen Lindsey ($3,700), Malik Ellison ($3,700)
Ben Bentil, Providence ($9,700) vs St Johns – I think Bentil is the safest stud on the early slate as he should just dominate St Johns in this one. Bentil has gone for 46+ in three straight games for Providence and definitely should benefit from Dunn being back to or close to 100%. We know that Bentil offers us a 60+ fantasy point upside so if I HAD to use a guy that was over 9K in every lineup I made, Bentil would be it.
Kelan Martin, Butler ($8,000) vs Marquette – I really like Martin here in this one as he is cheaper than Roosevelt Jones and he faces a Marquette team that he went for 38.75 fantasy points while scoring 27 game points against earlier this season. Butler is projected to be one of just a handful of teams that are going to cross the 80 point mark on the scoreboard.
Kris Jenkins, Villanova ($6,700) vs Georgetown – Jenkins is coming off of a 42.5 fantasy point performance in which he got ridiculously hot from beyond the arc. The game didn’t come out of nowhere as he has 40+ fantasy point upside and with this game being at home, I feel safe to say he should end up with 28+ fantasy points when all is said and done.
Other Options – Armani Moore ($8,900), Zach Auguste ($8,400), Taurean Prince ($7,800), Gavin Ware ($7,800), Tyler Harris ($7,700), Tyler Lydon ($6,700), Marc Loving ($6,600)
Alex Poythress, Kentucky ($5,700) vs LSU – Poythress put up an impressive game the last time out as he put up 29 fantasy points in 30 minutes of action, his most since returning from his knee injury. One of the UK bigs is going to exceed value in this game and my choice to do so is Poythress as I am not sure if Willis is going to return or not.
Jeff Roberson, Vanderbilt ($5,600) vs Texas A&M – I have been using a ton of Roberson over the last few weeks and he has gone for 91 fantasy points over his last three games so he comes in playing really well for Vandy. The last time these two teams met he went for 27.25 fantasy points. I would not complain about a 27 fantasy point performance against a tough Texas A&M team.
Anthony Perez, Mississippi ($4,700) vs Tennessee – Perez has played 61 minutes over the last two games and has managed to put up 56 fantasy points. Perez’s minutes have been extremely inconsistent, and it’s tough to know exactly what to expect, so for that reason we have to view him as a GPP play in a pretty nice match-up as Tennessee lacks any kind of size on the interior.
Other Options – Kassoum Yakwe ($5,700), Deyonta Davis ($5,300), Cole Huff ($5,100), Quinton Stephens ($4,600), Admiral Schofield ($4,500), Skal Labissiere ($4,100)
