CBB Daily Plays: Saturday, February 13th
With no NBA this weekend, it’s time to try some college basketball. Check out who I like in Saturday’s games in each price range. It’s good to see some bigger tournament in the upcoming weeks for CBB, so try and get some Q’s into the tournaments.
Anthony Barber (NC State): Barber is the dream fantasy player. He never comes off the court and the ball is always in his hand. Over the last four games, Barber is averaging 30 points, 5 assists, and 4 rebounds per game. This is a great matchup for him with a Wake Forest team that plays fast and doesn’t play a lot of defense. In the 1st meeting with WF, he finished with 41 FD points look for him to a little better at home.
Buddy Hield (Oklahoma): If the season ended today, Hield would be the Player of the Year. Last time out he hit the game winning shot against Texas as time expired. Today we get the rematch of the game of the year so far in CBB. Hield went off in the game, keep in mind it went three overtimes, but he still finished with 46 points. Right now the total of this game is just under 160.
Other I like: Kris Dunn, Tyler Ulis, Stefan Moody, Isaiah Cousins
Rasheed Brooks (Ole Miss): With Stefan Moody somewhat struggling recently, Brooks has really picked up his game. Over the last three games, Brooks is averaging 15 points and 6 rebounds per game. Also during that span he is averaging 3 steals per game. He is still pretty underpriced on DK.
Frank Mason (Kansas): Mason has had somewhat of a disappointing season this, but he has a great matchup on Saturday. He hasn’t shown much upside this year, but for the most part he has been consistent. He has at least 20 FD points in six out of his last seven games. As mentioned above this game has all the makings of a shootout.
Other I like: Edmond Sumner, Alex Caruso, Jordan Roper
Antonio Blakeney (LSU): The highly touted freshman has struggled this season, but he shown his potential in the last two games. In those two games he is averaging 27 points per game.
Tyree Griffin (Oklahoma State): With the injury to Jawun Evans, Griffin has played over 36 minutes in each of the last three games. He is coming off his best game last time out against KSU. He finished with 12 points, 5 assists and 4 rebounds. He may not have a big ceiling but he should see ton of minutes.
Other I like: George King, Rapheal Davis, Jeff Newberry
Jaron Blossomgame (Clemson): If Blossomgame was playing at a bigger program he would be a household name this season. He has been super consistent recently but for the dud against Virginia Tech. He has scored at least 22 points and 6 rebounds in seven out of his last eight games. He has a great matchup today against the interior of Georgia Tech.
Ben Bentil (Providence): Bentil has become a bigger focus of the offense as the season goes on. He is coming off a monster game against Marquette in which he scored 42 points and brought down 12 downs. Note that game went into overtime. He has scored at least 20 points in nine out of his last 10 games. Last time against Georgetown he had 26 points and 9 rebounds.
Other I like: Ben Simmons, AJ Hammons, Michael Carrera, Trevon Bluiett
Danuel House (Texas A&M): House has struggled recently, but those were some tough games against Alabama, South Carolina, and Vanderbilt. Now he gets to face a LSU team that plays fast and doesn’t like to play defense. Last time he faced LSU, he finished with 10 rebounds and 6 assists. He is listed as a guard on DK and a forward on FD.
Wesley Iwundu (Kansas State): Iwundu has really benefitted from Kamau Stokes being out with an injury. He is handling the ball a lot more. Over the last three games, he is averaging 16 points, 7 assists, and 3 rebounds per game.
Other I like: Ryan Spangler, Abdul Abu, Kelan Martin
LJ Peak (Georgetown): Although he isn’t a starter, he has been playing a ton of minutes lately and producing. He is averaging 19 points and 7 rebounds per game over his last two games. His price is a lot more attractive on DK.
Wesley Gordon (Colorado): As long as Josh Scott remains out, Gordon remains a great play. Last game, he played 45 minutes as the game went into overtime. With Scott out the last two games, Gordon is averaging 14 points and 12 rebounds per game.
Other I like: Cody Martin, Leyton Hammonds, Jalen Reynolds, Andrew Chrabascz
