College Basketball CBB DFS Picks 

CBB DFS Top Guards

PlayerTeamOpp.DK $DK FPPG
Tristen NewtonBUTLESTJN910035.94
After nearly posting a triple-double with 45 DK last game, Tristen Newton is back above 9k. Still, he’s usually worth it in cash with the stat-stuffing role for UConn on a regular basis. Newton is averaging 15.4 points, 6.8 rebounds, and 5.9 assists over the past 10 games. He’s a safe play anyway but gets a GPP boost if Alex Karaban is out again tonight.
RJ DavisUNCCLEM880034.34
RJ Davis continues to be a safe cash stud in DFS as he anchors a top-tier UNC team. He’s averaging 20.9 PPG and 34 DK over the past 10 games and we can pencil him in for 30-40 DFS points almost every game right now with his locked-in role and heavy shot volume. Davis also tends to perform a bit better at home than on the road, and UNC will need his scoring tonight to avoid an upset to Clemson.
Daniss JenkinsSTJNDPU820030.25
St. John’s gets an easy home matchup vs DePaul tonight, so Daniss Jenkins should be good for cash. He’s coming off two good games with 25 points/34 DK and 19 points/39 DK. He’s also averaging 16.9 PPG and 32 DK over the past 10 games while regularly producing ancillary stats in a high-usage role. Jenkins and St. John’s should have plenty of offensive success in this spot.
Hunter SallisWAKEGT800030.25
We’re now at a season-high DK price for Hunter Sallis, but he’s still worth rostering as arguably the best player in one of the highest totals of the slate. Sallis is thriving at Wake and he’s averaging 18.5 PPG with 33 DK over the past 10 games. The Wake offense is mostly running through him right now and he offers a strong cash DFS floor – especially against Georgia Tech and the ACC’s worst defense.
Tyrin LawrenceVANDUK750027.28
All of the Kentucky guards are obviously in play vs Vandy tonight. Dillingham and Sheppard should be considered upside GPP options while Reeves is a safer cash guard. On the Vandy side of things, though, don’t overlook Tyrin Lawrence. He’s averaging 15.7 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 29 DK over the past 10 games and is locked into shots/usage. Kentucky’s backcourt defense is a weakness right now and opposing guards continue to have success in this matchup. Lawrence is a nice under-the-radar play in the mid-7k range with a home pace-boost matchup.
DJ DavisBUTLEWAKE650023.97
DJ Davis has been the guy for Butler lately, scoring 17+ points with 31+ DK in four straight games. He’s also scored 28 and 22 points in the past two contests with heavy shot volume and offensive usage. During conference play, Davis leads Butler in usage and shot rate as one of its top offensive playmakers. He scored 22 points with 33 DK vs UConn earlier this year and can easily do it again.


CBB DFS Value Guards

PlayerTeamOpp.DK $DK FPPG
Chase HunterCLEMUNC570020.69
We’re getting Chase Hunter at a discount now because he’s been slightly underperforming compared to his mid-6k salaries lately. In this mid-5k range, though, Hunter is an attractive value. He’s averaging 13.6 points and 21 DK over the past 10 games – including 17 points scored vs UNC a month ago. Clemson needs his scoring and aggressiveness offensively to keep this close, so we’ll gladly take the value.
Milos UzanOUBYU560022.35
Milos Uzan is another guard we’re getting at a slight discount tonight because he’s coming off a dud performance last game. Uzan had just 9 DK last game, but he had 22+ DK in three straight beforehand. Uzan is averaging 22 DK over the past 10 games now and offers a solid cash floor as OU’s lead point guard. This is a home pace-boost matchup and we’ll gladly take Uzan in the mid-5k range while we can.
Emanuel SharpUHOKST550022.01
Jamal Shead and L.J. Cryer are also in play for cash and GPP, respectively, if you want to pay up for a Houston guard. Going the cheaper route gives us Emanuel Sharp at a pretty affordable price point and a discount after he “only” had 15 DK last game. Sharp had 28, 26, and 24 DK in the three games prior and he’s averaging a solid 10 PPG and 20 DK over the past 10 games. Even in a big Houston win and low-scoring game, Sharp can do enough to return value.
Kyle SturdivantGTWAKE510017.09
Despite coming off the bench, Kyle Sturdivant is taking double-digit shots on a regular basis for Georgia Tech lately. He also has 23% usage and shot rates in conference play while shooting 38% from three vs ACC competition. This offensive role gives him the upside for 25-30 DK points at his best, like he’s done in three of the past six games. This is a home pace-boost spot for GT too, so it boosts Sturdivant a bit more.
Jeremiah WilliamsRUUMD500021.5
After being out all year, Jeremiah Williams just made his season debut for Rutgers on Saturday. He immediately entered the starting lineup and logged 30 minutes in the debut while taking on a big offensive role right away. Williams took 12 shots, had 10 points and 21 DK as a starter – which is a great sign of his involvement moving forward. Despite the low-scoring road matchup vs Maryland’s tough defense, he’s still cheap enough at 5k flat.
Chendall WeaverUTISU470010.56
Chendall Weaver had recently seen a bigger role off the bench for Texas and he just entered the starting lineup last game. Weaver saw 33 minutes with 17 DK in the bigger role and he’s now played 25+ minutes in four straight. Meanwhile, Weaver replaced Ithiel Horton in the starting lineup and he only saw 3 minutes. We should see Weaver continue to start with him offering more all-around than Horton right now. Tyrese Hunter is another value guard to consider from Texas.


CBB DFS Top Forwards

PlayerTeamOpp.DK $DK FPPG
PJ HallCLEMUNC880036.95
When Clemson faced UNC a month ago, PJ Hall had arguably his worst game of the season. Of course, there’s a risk of that happening again tonight in the rematch on the road – but there’s also a good chance we get Hall at his best. The Clemson big man is averaging 18.8 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 33 DK over the past 10 games and he’s playing a lot better since that dud vs UNC. People may avoid him because of the matchup, making him an upside GPP option.
Joel SorianoSTJNDPU870034.33
Joel Soriano continues to be an up-and-down GPP play with as much upside as risk. We just saw one of the floor games vs UConn with just 18 DK, but tonight can be a ceiling performance. Soriano should have his way down low against a bad team and DePaul’s undersized frontcourt. A 20-point double-double with 40+ DK is certainly in the cards – but there is a the blowout potential which makes him risky too.
Tre MitchellUKVAND790030.88
Tre Mitchell is coming off his worst game of the season with only 7.3 DK and 0 points scored vs Tennessee. It’s a great buy-low opportunity for a guy who can easily bounce back in a favorable matchup vs Vanderbilt tonight. Mitchell has the GPP upside for 15-20 points, double-digit rebounds, and 35 DK at his best when he’s having his way down low. He’s been risky to trust in cash but has the GPP potential – especially at lower rostership coming off that dud.
J'Wan RobertsUHOKST770024.87
People will likely avoid him because Houston is expected to win big in a low-scoring game, but J’Wan Roberts is a nice upside GPP forward here. The Cougars’ center has been boom-or-bust for DFS all season, but a double-double and 30-35 DK is certainly possible tonight. Ok St has the worst interior defense in the Big 12 and is dead last in offensive rebounding. Roberts just had a double-double and 34 DK last game and can do it again.
Fousseyni TraoreBYUOU660019.31
After coming off the bench for the past month following his injury, Fousseyni Traore moved back into BYU’s starting lineup on Saturday and had a monster game. The big man had 24 points, 9 rebounds, and 45 DK in 31 minutes – his best performance of the season. Traore started with Aly Khalifa out, which could be the case again tonight. He’s seen a price increase but is still cheap enough for the GPP upside. Traore now has 27 and 45 DK in the past two games and looks to be returning to the stud production we were used to earlier this year before he got hurt.


CBB DFS Value Forwards

PlayerTeamOpp.DK $DK FPPG
Donta ScottUMDRU600021.38
Donta Scott’s role with Maryland has been fluctuating, but he’s trending up lately. Scott has taken double-digit shots in three straight while averaging 13 PPG and 26 DK over the past four contests. He’s also averaging 12.8 PPG and 24 DK over the past 10 games. At 6k flat, he’s just cheap enough to consider a value as he’s one of Maryland’s top three-point shooters right now.
Evan TaylorVANDUK550015.89
Since moving back into Vandy’s starting lineup over the past four games, Evan Taylor has seen a bigger role and is a lot more relevant for DFS. He’s averaging nearly 20 DK over this recent four-game stretch while logging 25-30 minutes as a starter. Taylor has been Vandy’s top three-point shooter during conference play (34%) and Kentucky has struggled to defend the perimeter. He’s in play as a salary-saver in all formats if he starts again.
Joseph TuglerUHOKST490014.07
With Ja’Vier Francis hurt last game, Joseph Tugler stepped into a season-high 34 minutes with 23 DK vs Kansas. Francis is expected to play tonight, but he may be limited – especially if it’s a blowout win. We may see Tugler get extended minutes again and that raises his DFS floor while doing just enough as a rebounder with ancillary stats. OK St has a terrible interior defense and is a poor offensive rebounding team, so Tugler has a good matchup if he sees more minutes.
