CBB DFS Slate Breakdown: Wednesday, December 1st
We have a large slate today with some bigger contests from DK, especially the 222, so let’s go ahead and hit up a write-up today. The rest of the days of the week look fairly poor, so this is probably going to be the 2nd one of the week.
Virginia Tech (66)
We don’t have any horrific misprices (7x projection), but we do have softer salaries than usual. The good thing is that this is a deeper slate, so there are plenty of options to choose from which should at least take some of the absurd ownership out of the question. Hunter Cattoor ($4,300) is the best projection on VT, but I struggle to see where he fits in on this slate. He is a low upside, low floor guy, and even though the price is low, there are plenty of other lower priced guys we can use. You aren’t tanking your lineup if you use him, but I think there are marginally better plays across the board so I won’t be using him.
Maryland’s defense, especially their interior defense, is solid so far this year, so guys like Justyn Mutts ($7,500) and Keve Aluma ($7,800) aren’t on my radar in this slate. They are likely to have very low ownership though, and we have seen Mutts and Aluma have gigantic upside especially with their large rebounding rates, so they are GPP playable. Nahiem Alleyne ($5,600) is off back to back 30 point performances, taking 30 shots in the last two games – he might actually be my favorite play from the team over Cattoor as Alleyne actually has some upside. We have seen Alleyne be a lower upside play throughout his career though, so I am still skeptical. Storm Murphy is not playable – he is too low usage.
