College Basketball CBB DFS Top Plays December 1

CBB DFS Top Guards

Baylor ScheiermanCREUT790031.11  
In Maui last week, Scheierman filled up the stat sheet plenty with 34, 33, and 38 DK in the three contests. That bodes well for his heavy usage and high involvement both offensively and as a rebounder for Creighton this season. He’ll be a safe cash play all year and it helps that Creighton plays a tight rotation. Even on the road against Texas’ good defense, Scheierman will do enough to be good for cash.
Will RichardsonOREWSU750026.89  
Oregon is dealing with a ton of injuries right now and it’s leading to Richardson taking on a ton of offensive responsibility. He was already the team’s top offensive playmaker, but the last two games show us how important he is to Oregon’s scoring. Richardson had 28 points, eight assists, and 51 DK vs. Michigan State and then 19 points, eight assists, and 35 DK vs. Villanova. If N’Faly Dante is out again, expect Richardson to be heavily involved once again and providing a great cash floor.
Tyger CampbellUCLASTAN740026.54  
In UCLA’s two games against good competition this season, we saw the offense rely on Tyger Campbell and Jaime Jaquez more often than not. We’ll get to Jaquez below, but Campbell is at a really good price point for his consistent cash floor. The Bruins’ point guard had 36 and 27 DK in those two aforementioned games against Illinois and Baylor, respectively. The track record is there and we should see Campbell plenty involved on the road here, especially if Jaylen Clark is out again.
Tyrese HunterUTCRE690025.05  
We’ve only seen Texas play one competent opponent thus far, and Hunter was the team’s best player in that game. He went off for 26 points and 36 DK vs. Gonzaga while having a 30% usage rate. The Texas offense will likely revolve around Hunter and Marcus Carr trading off playmaking roles in the backcourt. Both are good plays tonight, but Hunter’s price point is more affordable.
Courtney RameyARIZUTAH660029.17  
Since returning from suspension, Ramey has been exceptional for Arizona. He’s put up 27, 34, and 26 DK in his three games back while instantly taking on sizable offensive role. The Texas transfer should probably be priced in the 7k range at this point and is actually a bargain compared to Kerr Kriisa, who’s also been very good for Arizona and is worth considering on this slate.

Also Consider:

  • Marcus Carr – Texas ($7800) – Cash/GPP
  • Kerr Kriisa – Arizona ($7600) – GPP
  • Tristen Newton – UConn ($7100) – Cash
  • Trey Alexander – Creighton ($6200) – Cash/GPP

CBB DFS Value Guards

Marco AnthonyUTAHARIZ570020.56  
Anthony has moved into Utah’s starting lineup the last two games and put up 23 and 31 DK with the bigger role. He was a regular starter last year for Utah and should maintain this role moving forward. The Utes get a notable pace-boost here and Anthony will benefit to give you 25-30 DFS points again.
Jabe MullinsWSUORE550021.85  
Mullins has caught fire the last two games with 24 and 22 points scored and 37 and 31 DK, respectively. He’s gone 14-for-19 from three-point range in the two games combined, and that perimeter scoring is what we’re targeting here. Oregon is allowing a ton of scoring via the deep ball and Mullins is shooting 56% from three this season as Washington State’s top shooter. There’s plenty of upside here, and it helps that Mullins is playing 30+ minutes per game in the Cougs’ tight rotation.
David SingletonUCLASTAN540021.32  
Singleton has been a solid role player for UCLA this season with production across multiple stat categories as a better DFS option than you’d think. He’s posted at least 14 DK in every game with 25 DK a possibility when he hits a few three’s. Last game, Singleton started for Jaylen Clark and logged 17 DK over 33 minutes. It’s not great, but the locked in playing time matters if Clark is out again. He’s maybe a bit more expensive than we’d like, but you can do a lot worse in the 5k range.
Joseph YesufuKUSHU48008.03  
With Bobby Pettiford and Kevin McCullar out last game, Yesufu moved into the starting lineup and put up 25 DK with 14 points across 30 minutes. Pettiford is still out, but McCullar could be back tonight – though it’s unclear how much he plays or how effective he’ll be. Either way, expect Yesufu to be on ther court plenty because the Pettiford absence directly impacts his playing time. This is a great value in all formats.

Also Consider:

  • TJ Bamba – Washington State ($5900) – Cash
  • Rivaldo Soares – Oregon ($5700) – Cash
  • Jalen Gabbidon – Colorado ($5300) – GPP
  • Femi Odukale – Seton Hall ($5100) – Cash
  • Caleb Asberry – Oklahoma State ($4300) – Cash
  • MJ Rice – Kansas ($4000) – GPP

CBB DFS Top Forwards

Jalen WilsonKUSHU990042.41  
Wilson is definitely pricey, but he’s been worth it a lot this season. He has at least 40 DK in five of the last six games while averaging 22.8 points, 8.9 rebounds, and 3.6 assists per game this season. He’s truly stuffing the stat sheet in multiple ways and his rebounding while playing a small-ball five is important for Kansas right now. If you can fit him in, Wilson is always a good play in cash.
Adama SanogoUCONNOKST840032.5  
Sanogo is tough to trust in cash, but his GPP ceiling rivals anyone in college basketball. We saw it earlier this season when he went off for 27 points, 15 rebounds, and 53 DK (albeit against Boston U). At his best, though, Sanogo is one of the best rebounders and post scorers in the country and Ok State may have trouble with him down low tonight.
Oumar BalloARIZUTAH830038.5  
Azuolas Tubelis is also a good play from Arizona’s frontcourt, but Ballo has been more consistent and has a GPP-winning ceiling when he’s dominating the paint on both ends. He’s put up at least 35 DK in all but one game so far, has three double-double’s in the past four, and is averaging 19 points, 10 rebounds, and 1.5 blocks per game this season. Ballo got the better of Ryan Kalkbrenner last game with his 30 points, 13 boards, and 48 DK. He can have similar success tonight even though Utah’s Branden Carlson is on the other side.
Jaime Jaquez Jr.UCLASTAN810031.5  
As mentioned above, UCLA’s offense looks to be heavily reliant on Jaquez and Campbell for now. In the Bruins’ two games against real competition, Jaquez had 20 and 15 points against Illinois and Baylor, respectively. He also just put up 45 DK and 27 points in UCLA’s last game. The cash floor and GPP ceiling are there with Jaquez doing plenty as a rebounder and in other stat categories. He’s at a really attractive price point compared to Jalen Wilson.
Keion Brooks Jr.UWORST730030.55  
Brooks has been underpriced all season and he’s still a tad too cheap despite jumping into the 7k range. The Kentucky transfer is Washington’s best player now and he’s put up 30 DK or more in four of five games this season. The floor is high for cash with his heavy usage and shot volume rates. Oregon State presents a very favorable matchup here too.

Also Consider:

  • Ryan Kalkbrenner – Creighton ($7600) – GPP
  • Mouhamed Gueye – Washington State ($7000) – GPP

CBB DFS Value Forwards

Quincy GuerrierOREWSU610016.89  
N’Faly Dante’s status is one to watch tonight. With Dante out last game, Guerrier stepped up with 21 points, eight rebounds, and 36 DK. He hadn’t been playing well before that outburst, but the increased usage and opportunity will be there again for Guerrier if Dante sits. This price tag is right in the middle of being a value and not, but he could be a nice low-rostered GPP play for plenty of upside in Dante’s absence again.
KJ Adams Jr.KUSHU550017.97  
Adams isn’t a top offensive option for Kansas, but he does just enough across the board while starting for the Jayhawks to be a solid DFS play. He has 20 and 19 DK in the past two games while being needed a bit more with Bobby Pettiford and Kevin McCullar sidelined. There’s a chance McCullar returns tonight, but Adams will still get his minutes with a decent cash value return.
DJ RodmanWSUORE510019.56  
After missing a game due to illness, Rodman returned to Washington State’s starting lineup and put up 22 DK last outing. He now has at least 22 DK in all three of his starts this season and presents a solid cash value at this affordable salary. WSU is rolling with a tight rotation and it benefits Rodman from racking up just enough ancillary stats to be DFS-relevant.
Christian BishopUTCRE410011.5  
It’s tough to get a true sense of Texas’ rotation and what Bishop’s role will be since the Longhorns have played only one good team so far. In that matchup vs. Gonzaga, he played a season-high 20 minutes and put up 14 DK. Texas has a ton of frontcourt talent, so it’s hard to trust any cash production from Bishop. There’s GPP upside at his cheap price, though, and Texas may play him more than Disu, Allen, or Mitchell against Creighton tonight – especially since it’s his old squad.

Also Consider:

  • Dylan Disu – Texas ($5400) – Cash
  • Alonzo Gaffney – Arizona State ($4500) – GPP
  • Lok Wur – Oregon ($3400) – GPP
