CBB Daily Plays: Wednesday, February 24th
Check out who I like on Wednesday’s games in each price range. It’s good to see FanDuel is rolling out Survive the Madness once again.
Demetrius Jackson (Notre Dame): The theme this year in college basketball is target players against Wake Forest. Easily put Wake Forest plays fast and no defense. In their last meeting, the Fighting Irish put up 85 points. In that game Jackson was a couple of rebounds and assists away from a triple-double. He finished that game with 42 FD points.
Gary Payton II (Oregon State): After some tough matchups, Payton finally gets a fantasy friendly game. Washington plays at one of the fastest paces in the country. The one thing you like about Payton, he is a stat-sheet stuffer. He averages over five assists and rebounds per game on the season. Also over his last four games, he is averaging four steals per game.
Other I like: Buddy Hield, Maurice Watson Jr., Anthony Barber
Jordan Woodard (Oklahoma): After struggling in early February, Woodard has picked up his game over the last weeks. He is averaging 15 points, 4 rebounds, and 4 assists per game over his last 3 games. In the last meeting with Oklahoma State, he scored 17 points real life points.
Allonzo Trier (Arizona): Ever since returning from an injury, Trier hasn’t missed a beat. He is probably coming off his best game of the season against rival Arizona State. In that game he finished with 20 points, 8 rebounds, and 2 assists.
Other I like: Zak Irvin, Joel Berry, Peter Jok
Robert Hubbs III (Tennessee): With Kevin Punter out with an injury, Hubbs played his best game of the season against LSU. He played 36 minutes and finished with 19 points and 7 rebounds. Hubbs is only in play if Punter is out, and by all account he is out for at least a couple more games.
Haanif Cheatham (Marquette): Cheatham has been super consistent over the last month or so. I like his price a lot better on DK. Over his last four games, he is averaging 18 points and 4 rebounds per game.
Other I like: Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman,Duane Notice, Tyler Dorsey
Brice Johnson (North Carolina): Johnson is a walking double-double. He has recorded a double-double in seven out of his last ten games. He has been playing out of his mind lately, over his last two games he is averaging 23 points and 17 rebounds per game. Yes he did struggle in the 1st meeting with NC State, but he is matchup proof.
Yante Maten (Georgia): Maten has been playing his best basketball of the season over the last month. He is averaging 18 points and 9 rebounds per game over his last 3 games. He has a great matchup against Auburn; the Tigers really struggle to defend the paint. In the last meeting with Auburn he had 38 FD points, including five blocks.
Other I like: Michael Carrera, Henry Ellenson, Armani Moore, Dillion Brooks
Jalen Jones(Texas A&M): After struggling the last month or so, Jones is coming off one of his better games of the season against a tough matchup in Kentucky. He scored 24 points and brought down 8 boards. He has a great matchup tonight against Mississippi State, he should get to the rim with ease.
Tres Tinkle (Oregon State): As mentioned above this is a great matchup for Oregon State. Tinkle is coming of his best two games of the season. In those games he averaged 23 points and 6 rebounds. That was also against some pretty tough opponents on the road.
Other I like: Justin Jackson, Bonzie Colson, Danuel House
Doral Moore & John Collins (Wake Forest): It’s hard to separate these players, because they’re both of the same. With Devin Thomas out both should get a bigger role in the offense. Last game, Moore started and finished with 36 FD points. However, it sounds like tonight Collins will start. He finished last game with 20 FD points. Both players receive a boost if Zach Auguste misses for Notre Dame.
Maverick Rowan (NC State): The North Carolina-North Carolina State game is the highest projected total of the slate. So it doesn’t hurt to fit as many players from these teams into your lineups as you can. Rowan doesn’t do much but score, and at his price you will take that. He has gone over 20 FD points in three out of his last four games.
