College Basketball CBB DFS Top Plays November 28

CBB DFS Top Guards

Ricky Council IVARKTROY760032.17  
As long as Nick Smith remains out, Council will continue in his high-usage and active offensive role for Arkansas as a great DFS play. He’s now put up at least 27 DK in every game this season while averaging 19 PPG and leading the team in usage rate and shot volume. It’s been Council and Anthony Black as the main offensive catalysts for Arkansas early on and that shouldn’t change tonight.
Anthony BlackARKTROY680030.33  
Black has quickly become a top playmaker for Arkansas in his freshman season and he, like Council, is benefiting from Nick Smith’s absence. Black is playing a point-forward position and took on a bigger scoring role in Maui last week, scoring 26, 26, and 15 points in the three games while filling up the stat sheet in plenty of other ways. His DFS floor is pretty high for cash and he’s cheaper than he should be at sub-7k.
Boo BuieNWPITT670027.38  
Chase Audige and Boo Buie continue to be Northwestern’s top playmakers and both are solid plays tonight, even in a low-total matchup. Buie gets the slight nod here because he’s now cheaper after a couple down games and Audige playing well lately. Still, the ceiling is there for Buie to get hot and smash the slate. That happened in Northwestern’s last home game when Buie dropped 28 points with 7-for-13 three-point shooting. He’ll benefit from playing at home tonight after struggling in last week’s tournament in Mexico. Bank on the bounceback against a below-average Pitt team.
Gradey DickKUTXSO640025.68  
Dick took a backseat offensively for Kansas in last week’s tournament, but he has plenty of upside tonight back at home in a likely blowout. The freshman excelled at home in the first four games of this season and should get back to putting up double-digit points and 30 DK again. The GPP ceiling is there, but it’s tough to roster in cash since we’ve seen his lower floor games.

Also Consider:

  • Sean Pedulla – Virginia Tech ($7400)
  • Jamarius Burton – Pittsburgh ($6600)

CBB DFS Value Guards

Cameron TysonSEAUW580038.25  
This is a pretty good price for rostering Seattle’s best player. Tyson has a massive 28% usage rate and 37% shot share this year while shooting 51% from three (19-for-37). We know Tyson is going to be launching it as double-digit three-point attempts in every game so far and did something similar last year. Seattle’s offense revolves around Tyson and Alex Schumacher, but one is notably cheaper on DK. You can roster in cash and GPP.
PJ Fuller IIUWSEA520020.21  
Fuller presents a really nice value for getting Washington’s point guard into your lineup and having cheap exposure to the late-night matchup. He has 17 DK or more in all but one game this season (which was against Saint Mary’s) and he’s filling up the stat sheet plenty for a solid floor. You can do a lot worse in the 5k range for cash.
Brooks BarnhizerNWPITT400014.71  
Barnhizer is one of only two Northwestern subs to get meaningful playing time in a tight rotation that usually includes just seven players. Even coming off the bench, the sophomore has been doing just enough DFS-wise while playing 20-30 minutes per game in the last few contests. Barnhizer is the main backup wing with a decent-sized role to return value here. He has 15 DK or more in three of the last four with 20 DK in two of those.
Joseph YesufuKUTXSO37005.57  
Yesufu is about to step into more playing time for Kansas in a backup guard role with Bobby Pettiford out. He logged 27 minutes last game and scored 14 points off the bench after Pettiford left early. Yesufu could see plenty of minutes in the second half of this game with Kansas expected to win big. Remember, the guy was a dynamic playmaker for Drake not too long ago and has plenty of talent to smash value. He looks like an excellent salary-saver in all formats.

Also Consider:

  • Duke Miles – Troy ($5900)
  • Davonte Davis – Arkansas ($5700)
  • Braedon Carrington – Minnesota ($5000)
  • Jamal Bey – Washington ($4900)
  • Nike Sibande – Pittsburgh ($4800)
  • Koren Johnson – Washington ($3600)

CBB DFS Top Forwards

Jalen WilsonKUTXSO980042.29  
Wilson is mighty expensive, but he’s been worth it more often than not this season. He’s filling up the stat sheet with large offensive and rebounding roles for Kansas while stepping up as the team’s alpha. Wilson has 40 DK or more in five of seven games so far and he’s already had some big performances when Kansas has faced lower-tier competition like tonight. It’s a lot, but Wilson is always a good play for cash or GPP.
Justyn MuttsVTMINN800033.54  
Mutts has at least 31 DK in five of six games so far and is averaging 14 points, 10.2 rebounds, 3.8 assists in those five games where he’s also logged 30+ minutes. That should be the case again tonight in a cross-conference matchup with Minnesota. He’s about as consistent as it gets for cash and VT’s tight rotation definitely helps all the starters.
Trevon BrazileARKTROY750029.29  
It’s crazy to think that Brazile doesn’t start for Arkansas but is one of its best players so far. The big man brings a ton of athleticism and energy off the bench and he’s striving in that role. Brazile has at least 32 DK in four of six games this season while being a nightly threat to go for a 20-point double-double. He should have a size and athletic advantage against Troy here, but the blowout factor and deep Arkansas rotation keeps him in GPP range at an elevated price tag.
Keion Brooks Jr.UWSEA620030.44  
Brooks is really cheap considering his role and production this season. The Kentucky transfer is now Washington’s top offensive option and he’s put up 30 DK or more in three of four games played this season. He’s just so affordable at just over 6k and should be very chalky in cash tonight.

Also Consider:

  • Grant Basile – Virginia Tech ($8400)
  • Dawson Garcia – Minnesota ($6400)

CBB DFS Value Forwards

Davon BarnesTXSOKU540021.71  
Unfortunately, Texas Southern’s rotation is deep so it’s tough to trust any for cash lineups. Plus, a road matchup against Kansas isn’t ideal. Still, Barnes is worth considering in GPP. The sophomore wing/power forward has a 25% usage rate and 24% shot share this season while playing 25-35 minutes per game. He just went off for 30 points last time out vs. Samford and has shown the offensive upside at times this season when he’s being assertive in the paint.
KJ Adams Jr.KUTXSO530017.75  
How about one more Kansas player? Adams is a solid cash value with him being locked into a starting wing role now with Christian Braun and Ochai Agbaji gone. He’s doing just enough in each stat category to give you 15-20 DFS points with the potential for more in this blowout game where Kansas should have plenty of offensive success. Adams had 23 and 26 DK in two of KU’s easier matchups this year.
Pharrel PayneMINNVT480017.71  
Payne has some GPP upside tonight coming off the bench for Minnesota. The freshman big man is playing behind Dawson Garcia, but his size and rebounding skills could be needed more often against Virginia Tech here. Payne has 20 DK or more in three of the last five games with a 31 DK effort in there.

Also Consider:

  • Zay Williams – Troy ($5700)
  • Brandton Chatfield – Seattle ($5200)
  • Braxton Meah – Washington ($4700)
