Studs

Luke Maye – UNC ($8100) : Yes the Duke guys/Shamorie Ponds/Carsen Edwards are all in play if you can find a way to fit them… but I never like playing anyone in the $10k+ range and in a huge slate with softer than normal pricing you don’t need to. Luke hasn’t had the kind of season he was projected to have but he’s been turning it up a little bit lately. NC State doesn’t have anyone who can matchup with him both inside and out, and this is the exact type of super fast paced game where Luke will eat (went 20 & 16 in a similar type game against Gonzaga).

Tristan Clarke – Baylor ($7800) : I like this spot for Baylor at home going up against a Cyclone team coming off a huge win against Kansas. If the Cyclones have a weakness its definitely being a little soft inside. Looking at Iowa State’s last 3 Power 6 games, forwards have smashed against them (Tyler Cook – 26 & 11, Cam McGriff – 15, 13 & 5, Dedric Lawson – 13 & 13). The offense should run through Clarke and he has post 43+ fp games in 2 of his last 4.

 

Mid Level

Markell Johnson – NC State ($6100) : I will be taking him every single slate as long as DK continues to under price him. He’s the best player on one of the fastest teams in the country. This UNC game is going to be nuts and Markell is going to be running the show for the Wolfpack. Everytime he’s played over 25 min hes went for 30+ fp.

Phil Booth – Villanova ($7100) – Baffling to me that DK has priced him around 7k or below all year, I have played him so many times and will continue to at this absurd discount. He is both the most used on the team and plays 35+ min a game. In a plus pace game against a Johnnies defense that likes to deny passing lanes, Booth will have every opportunity to penetrate and score or assist. Has scored over 34 fp in his last 4 games.

 

Value

Ashton Hagans – Kentucky ($4400) : Ever since Coach Cal inserted him into the starting PG role, he has really played well and run away with the job. Plus, Quade Green transferring out has really thinned the backcourt rotation. Hagans is now locked in playing 30+ min a game, he won’t give you too much scoring but fills the stat sheet in basically every other category, especially steals. DK has slowly been bringing his price up but definitely not fast enough, I’ll keep playing him until he hits mid $5k. Averaging 28 fp over his last 3 games.

Braxton Beverly – NC State ($4500) : When looking at cbb DFS plays you start with 2 things, minutes & usage. Braxton starts and plays 30+ min in the fastest pace game of the night (172 total is absurd). He doesn’t have the highest usage on the team, but he gets his 3 pt shots up (took 10 last game). Opportunities are there for rebounds and assists. NC State will need him to hit some shots to beat UNC, he has 20+ fp upside.
