College Basketball CBB DFS Top Plays November 21

CBB DFS Top Guards

Terry RobertsUGASTJOE890031.88  
Georgia’s offense revolves heavily around Roberts, especially if Kario Oquendo remains out tonight. Roberts has a 33% usage rate and 38% shot rate in a score-first point guard role. That’s high usage has resulted in 29, 36, 43 DK the last three games with 20+ points scored in the past two. He’s expensive, but Roberts gets a pace-boost matchup here in one of the higher-scoring games of the slate.
Judah MintzSYRRICH810029.58  
Mintz has stepped into a big role with Syracuse right away as a freshman with Buddy Boeheim, Cole Swider, and Jimmy Boeheim gone. The Orange offense essentially features Mintz and Joseph Girard handling the ball a lot and taking plenty of shots in the backcourt. Mintz has 32 and 35 DK in the past two games with an active offensive role and plenty of ancillary stats while playing heavy minutes. Expect more of the same as a top cash option tonight.
Damian DunnTEMPSTJN790032  
Dunn is coming off an ugly 13 DK performance where he shot just 1-for-6 against Rutgers. Expect a bounceback in a major pace-boost and uptempo matchup with St. John’s where Dunn will be needed much more offensively. Just last week, he went off for 38 points and 45 DK in a high-scoring game. We could see another massive performance here and he should be popular in all formats. You can also roster Khalif Battle, but he’s more of a GPP play.
Andre CurbeloSTJNTEMP640024.81  
Curbelo splits point guard duties with Posh Alexander, but he’s notably cheaper for likely similar DFS production. The Illinois transfer has a proven DFS floor with his ancillary stats and he just put up 30 DK last game despite scoring only seven points. It’s possible he takes on a bigger role offensively in some games and shouldn’t be priced this low for the potential 30+ DFS points in GPPs with how uptempo the St. John’s games are.

Also Consider:

  • Posh Alexander – St. John's
  • Erik Reynolds – Saint Joseph's
  • Ishmael Leggett – Rhode Island
  • Darrion Trammell – San Diego State

CBB DFS Value Guards

Cameron BrownSTJOEUGA590030.83  
Brown is a tad too cheap for his role with Saint Joseph’s. First off, the scoring revolves mostly around Brown and Erik Reynolds each having 29% shot rates. Second, Brown is arguably the team’s best rebounder and he’s recorded double-digit boards in back-to-back games. Overall, the senior wing has 41 DK in both of the past two games. That production should make him popular in cash lineups tonight.
Rollie WorsterUTAHGT500022.38  
The Utah point guard isn’t really a flashy pick, but he’s a perfectly fine cash salary-saver at this 5k price tag. Worster has at least 18 DK in all four games thus far and has the upside for 25-30 when he’s more active scoring-wise. At his floor, though, Worster will do plenty with ancillary stats for a decent cash value.
Cameron MatthewsMSSTMARQ480024.38  
Unfortunately the Mississippi State rotation is a deep one with the starters not playing heavy minutes. Still, Matthews presents plenty of value at sub-5k in a pace-boost against Marquette. He fills up the stat sheet in plenty of ways with at least 22 DK in three of four games and 30 DK twice already. You can do a lot worse in cash or GPP.
Jusaun HoltUGASTJOE340013.25  
Holt moved into Georgia’s starting lineup and logged 31 minutes last game with Kario Oquendo out. He put up just 13 DK, but the extended playing time is really attractive for a guy priced sub-4k in a pace-boost matchup and higher-scoring environment. If Oquendo is out and Holt starts again, he can give you 15 DK or more as a decent salary-saver.

Also Consider:

  • Kam Jones – Marquette
  • Desi Sills – Kansas State
  • Lynn Greer – Saint Joseph's
  • Sebastian Thomas – Rhode Island
  • Dallan Coleman – Georgia Tech

CBB DFS Top Forwards

David JonesSTJNTEMP930035.62  
The DePaul transfer is now the top offensive option for St. John’s as he fills the shoes of Julian Champagnie from last year. That was a very productive role for DFS and Jones is a top play because of it. He has at least 30 DK and 15 points scored in all four games thus far in the Johnnies’ fast-paced attack. Expect him to be popular in cash with a high floor and plenty of ceiling.
Branden CarlsonUTAHGT920036.5  
Carlson has a great floor/ceiling combo with his heavy offensive usage, rebounding ability, and shot-blocking skills. The Utah center has at least 27 DK in all four games thus far and has 40+ in two contests. He’s averaging 17 points, eight rebounds, and three blocks per game. Carlson has a size and talent advantage in the paint against Georgia Tech here and should be great in all formats.
Tyler BurtonRICHSYR900035  
Richmond’s best player is always a great cash or GPP play if on the slate. Burton has at least 26 DK in every game thus far and his DFS floor is pretty high while taking a ton of shots and grabbing enough rebounds. He also has the ceiling for 30+ real points and 40-50 DK at his best. There’s potential for a big game against Syracuse’s zone defense as Richmond should rely on his offensive versatility to score in the paint, from the mid-range, and via three-pointers.
Keyontae JohnsonKSUURI820031.83  
Johnson has been really good for Kansas State this season. He’s put up 34 and 40 DK the past two games while being a top scoring option and dominating on both ends. Even in a lower-scoring matchup here, Johnson should fill up the stat sheet plenty against Rhode Island and anchor cash lineups. He could end up popular since he’s notably cheaper than other top forwards tonight.

Also Consider:

  • Tolu Smith – Mississippi State
  • Zed Key – Ohio State
  • Jesse Edwards – Syracuse

CBB DFS Value Forwards

Jamille ReynoldsTEMPSTJN570025.75  
Temple’s center is too cheap for a guy that’s put up 31, 27, and 33 DK in the past three games. If he stays out of foul trouble, Reynolds should smash value in an uptempo and pace-boost game environment tonight. He has a 33% shot rate and 26% usage rate and is very affordable for the double-double and 5x upside.
Jaedon LeDeeSDSUOSU550024.5  
Despite coming off the bench, LeDee actually leads San Diego State in usage rate (32%) and shot rate (34%) in his 20-25 minutes per game. It’s an interesting dynamic for the TCU transfer as the offense tends to revolve around his post-scoring ability when he’s on the court. LeDee has 22, 33, and 18 DK in the first three games with double-digit points scored in each. Ohio State’s frontcourt defense is a bit tougher tonight, but this is a great GPP value option.
Benny WilliamsSYRRICH500019.42  
Williams is really affordable for a starter in Syracuse’s tight rotation, which is always a great target for DFS CBB lineup. The sophomore forward put up 17 points, eight rebounds, and 31 DK over 38 minutes in the Orange’s only close game so far. He also had 22 DK last time out, which we’ll take all day at just 5k. Williams is a solid cash value.
David JoplinMARQMSST460024.25  
Though he comes off the bench, Joplin leads Marquette in usage rate (29%) and shots share (29%) in his 20 minutes or so. He comes into the game as an offensive-minded sub once one or both of Prosper and Ighodaro get into foul trouble. Joplin has put up 30, 33, and 24 DK in the past three games with his high-usage reserve role. It’s more of a high-upside GPP play, though, because he’s reliant on three-point shooting and Mississippi State is good at defending the perimeter.

Also Consider:

  • Justice Sueing – Ohio State
  • Kacper Klaczek – Saint Joseph's
  • Brice Sensabaugh – Ohio State
  • Abdou Samb – Rhode Island
  • Jalon Moore – Georgia Tech
