Game Analysis

On the last Sunday of the regular season, we get a nice little 6 game slate with O/U’s that range from 119 up to 134.5.  That is a pretty tight range and there should be some tight scoring today.  Should be a fun day to take advantage of the prize pools and try to win your seat to the March Mania Tournament.

GUARD TARGETS

Studs

 
  • D’Angelo Russell, Ohio St ($9,800) – I will start this off by saying this is an extremely risky pick as its so tough going up against Wisconsin.  With that said, Wisconsin has given up very good games to their opponents’ best player and Russell would certainly fit into that category.  He is one of two players with 40+ fantasy upside in any game, on this slate.  I think I will be fading Russell but I think he needed to be mentioned here due to his upside.
 
  • D.J. Newbill, Penn St ($9,200) – Newbill is by far Penn St’s best player and is not afraid to put up 20+ shots any time he steps onto the floor.  The last time these two teams met, Newbill went for a double double and 34.75 fantasy points.  In that game he only made 4 of 15 shots so should his shot fall a little better today, we could be looking at a very nice game.
 
  • Dez Wells, Maryland ($8,100) – This is not an ideal match-up for Maryland, as Nebraska plays pretty solid defense and loves to slow it down.  With that said, it is only a 6 game slate and the O/U’s are very close throughout the slate.  Being in B1G Ten country, I get to see a lot of Wells and the more I watch, the more I love his game.  He is all over the court and attacks at high speed.  He is coming off of a 35.5 fantasy point double double and just three games ago put up 41.25 against Wisconsin’s defense.
 

 

 

Values

 
  • Shep Garner, Penn St ($4,500) – Garner is the starting PG for Penn St and should be on the court for 32+ minutes today in what should be one of the highest scoring games.  He has shown us a 25 fantasy point upside with a floor of 17 over the last few games and should be able to cross the 20 point mark today.
 
  • Cavon Baker, Houston ($3,200) – Baker is certainly a risk as his minutes are far from a guarantee.  With L.J. Rose out, Baker should pick up some extra run and if he does, he offers us a 25 fantasy point upside at basically the minimum, which could be very important should you want to fit a couple of studs in your lineup.  He is coming off of 19 fantasy points in 24 minutes of action.

FORWARD TARGETS

Studs

 
  • Frank Kaminsky, Wisconsin ($10,000) – Kaminsky is making an awesome final push to be crowned Player of the Year and he certainly gets my vote!  (I do not actually have a vote….I know, how absurd!)  Frank has gone for 44 and 47 fantasy points in his last two and is playing awesome basketball.  He takes on an Ohio St team that should not have an answer for him on the defensive end.  All lineups should start with Kaminsky today.
 
  • Devonta Pollard, Houston ($6,800) – Pollard gets to take on a weak ECU team on the interior and should have the best shot of getting a double double today.  He has put up 62.75 fantasy points in the last two while averaging 35.5 minutes per game.  He manages to get to the foul line often and today should be no different for Pollard.
 
  • Nigel Hayes, Wisconsin ($6,700) – Call this one a gut feeling as I think Dekker will be matched up with the athletic Sam Thompson today and that would leave Hayes up against the under sized Jae’Sean Tate.  Do not get me wrong, I really like Tate from a fantasy perspective but I just think Hayes’ offensive game will give him troubles. Hayes has put up 50.75 fantasy points over his last two and is always a double double threat and shoots the ball well from downtown.
 

 

 

Values

 
  • Ross Travis, Penn St ($4,700) – Travis makes the 3rd Penn St player talked about today and I think I am ok with that.  Their prices are very intriguing outside of Newbill and they play in what should be the highest scoring game of the day.  Travis has put up 48.25 fantasy points over his last two games while playing 54 minutes.  I know Newbill takes a ton of shots and that limits Travis to 7-9 shots, but he is very effective when he does get his shots and offers double double upside.
 
  • Calvin Godfrey, Memphis ($4,100) – If last game was any indication, Godfrey is the main beneficiary of the Nichols injury as he played 33 minutes and put up 20.5 fantasy points.  That is basically the amount of minutes he had played in the previous 3 games.  He is not a very gifted offensive player but did put up 10 shots last time out and grabbed 10 boards, leaving himself just 2 points shy of a double double.
