College Basketball CBB DFS Picks 

CBB DFS Top Guards

Dalton KnechtTENNLSU910031.1  
Dalton Knecht cooled off a bit last game with “only” 16 points and 26 DK. Yet tonight, he can easily return to scoring 25-35 points with 45-50 DK. Don’t forget that Knecht averaged 32 PPG and 46 DK over the previous six games. A fast-paced home matchup vs LSU’s average defense is a good environment for Knecht to get back to that stud level. The Vols' offense should continue to revolve heavily around him.
Devin CarterPROVCRE900038.83850035.55
The Creighton vs Providence game features a few stud guards to consider. Baylor Scheierman (cash) and Trey Alexander (GPP) are both in play on the Creighton side. Devin Carter, though, continues to offer a strong floor with plenty of upside while locked into heavy usage and shot volume as Providence’s headliner. He’s averaging 21 points, 8.0 rebounds, 3.7 assists, and 42 DK over the past 10 games and we can basically pencil him in for 35-45 DFS points on a regular basis. He’s expensive but is usually worth it.
Wade Taylor IVTA&MMIZZ870034.13800031.23
Wade Taylor is coming off a poor shooting day vs Florida last game and still finished with 15 points and 24 DK. We should see a bounceback for Texas A&M’s alpha playmaker tonight against Missouri’s SEC-worst defense. Taylor is averaging 21 PPG and 34 DK over the past 10 contests and we know he’s locked into a heavy shot volume to provide a strong DFS floor.
Mark SearsBAMAAUB830034.47820031.90
In the highest total of the slate, Mark Sears is a clear top play as he headlines Alabama’s offense. Sears has now scored 20+ points in five straight games and eight of the past nine while averaging 20.8 PPG and 35 DK over the past 10. He’s locked into shots, usage, and overall stat accumulation for Bama and should be good for cash lineups per usual. He had 22 points and 44 DK vs Auburn in the first meeting.
Brooks BarnhizerNWNEB810032.42780030.64
Boo Buie is the clear headliner for Northwestern, especially with the roll he’s on, but Brooks Barnhizer could be the contrarian play and is a bit cheaper. The wing is averaging 15.9 PPG and 31 DK over the past 10 games and offers a solid floor with his scoring and rebounding. Barnhizer is shooting 43% from three in conference play and is one of a few NW guys with more upside against Nebraska’s poor 3-point defense.

CBB DFS Value Guards

Keisei TominagaNEBNW570020.67490018.97
Against Illinois on Sunday, we got a good glimpse of Keisei Tominaga’s high GPP upside when he dropped 31 points and 40 DK. He had been shooting poorly in previous games but always has the potential to get hot and score 20+ real points and 30+ DK. Northwestern does have the Big Ten’s 2nd-worst defense, so Tominaga can keep it going and should be considered a value if he’s priced below 6k on DK (and below 5k on FD).
Quadir CopelandSYRUL570021.06  
With Benny Williams leaving the team, Quadir Copeland is a top candidate to get more playing time for Syracuse. He’s already been playing 20-25 minutes off the bench, but Copeland could move into the starting lineup now and be locked into a bigger role on the wing. Cuse lacks depth in the frontcourt with Naheem McLeod out for the season too, so Copeland could be on the floor a ton now – which raises his DFS upside for GPP.
Michael O'ConnellNCSTPITT560015.3  
NC State recently switched up its starting lineup and Michael O’Connell is a beneficiary of the change. He’s started the past two games with 30 and 24 DK in the starts and 30+ minutes played in both. O’Connell is running the point more with DJ Horne in the two-guard role and that gives him a decent floor of ancillary stats.
Mark ArmstrongVUXAV550015.6460014.38
Villanova continues to be up and down with the players following suit in DFS. One guy who’s worth rostering as long as he’s priced this low is Mark Armstrong. The Nova offense has been running through him more lately and he has 25% usage and a 27% shot rate during conference play. Armstrong is putting up 10.8 PPG and 21 DK over the past 10 contests and benefits from facing the fastest-paced team in the Big East tonight.
Rylan GriffenBAMAAUB540019.46490017.58
If you want some cheap exposure to the Alabama side of this high-scoring matchup vs Auburn, look at Rylan Griffen and Latrell Wrightsell. As for Griffen, he tends to do just enough to return value as long as he’s priced in the mid-5k range on DK (and cheaper on FD). He’s averaging 12.5 PPG and 22 DK over the past 10 games and actually went for 17 points and 30 DK vs Auburn last month. We’d take that all day at these cheap prices.
Tre DonaldsonAUBBAMA520016.89470015.58
Tre Donaldson has now started the past three games over Aden Holloway and it’s raised his DFS floor with the uptick in minutes. Donaldson has 21, 20, and 16 DK in these past three starts with 22-25 minutes in each – which is up from his 15-20 mins as a reserve. In an uptempo, high-scoring game here, Donaldson is a cheap way to get exposure for cash lineups.

CBB DFS Top Forwards

Johni BroomeAUBBAMA930036.49880034.32
When Auburn played Alabama last month, Johni Broome went off for 25 points, 14 rebounds, and 55 DK. He may not match that production tonight, but he’ll probably come pretty close as a top-tier DFS play. Bama’s interior defense is a weakness and this is a fast-paced, high-scoring matchup at home for Broome. It’ll be tough to fade him in cash.
Ryan KalkbrennerCREPROV860033.52820031.84
When Creighton faced Providence a month ago, Ryan Kalkbrenner had 22 points, 12 rebounds, and 41 DK. That’s about on par with how he’s regularly performing since with per-game averages of 17.7 points, 8.7 rebounds, and 36 DK over the past 10 contests. Kalkbrenner has been much more consistent in conference play and some of his better games have actually come on the road.
Josh OduroPROVCRE820030.83790028.96
The Providence offense heavily revolves around Devin Carter and Josh Oduro with both bringing strong DFS production into tonight’s game. As for Oduro, he has at least 34 DK in six straight games while averaging 18.8 points and 8 rebounds per game in this stretch. Facing Ryan Kalkbrenner is tough and Oduro struggled in the first meeting, but he can still go for 20+ points and 35-40 DK tonight with the roll he’s on.
Steven CrowlWISCMICH730025.82580024.03
Steven Crowl is the perfect example of a buy-low GPP option tonight after posting sub-20 DK in three of the past four games. The Wisconsin center still has the upside for 30+ DFS points at his best – like he did vs Michigan St, Indiana, and Penn St in the past month. One of those ceiling games could come against Michigan’s undersized and subpar frontcourt. The FD price is really cheap too.

CBB DFS Value Forwards

Solomon WashingtonTA&MMIZZ540015.92470015.23
Solomon Washington is an up-and-down risky DFS play, but one of those better performances could come tonight against Mizzou’s conference-worst defense that struggles on the boards. Washington isn’t heavily involved offensively for A&M, but he can do just enough as a rebounder and scorer inside to return value – with some defensive stats upside. His floor/ceiling are both raised a bit now too since he joined the starting lineup.
Chris BellSYRUL510016.31  
Like Quadir Copeland above, Chris Bell is another candidate to see more playing time with Benny Williams gone. Bell has already been starting, but his minutes and role should increase now with Syracuse lacking depth in the frontcourt. He’s a risky play for DFS, but the GPP value potential is there at home against a weak Louisville defense.
Curtis WilliamsULSYR490010.5  
With Skyy Clark out last game, Curtis Williams stepped into a bigger role as a starter for Louisville. He had 19 points on 13 shot attempts with 27 DK in 30 minutes. It was his best game of the season, but could be a sign of things to come if he starts tonight with Clark possibly out again. Syracuse’s wing defense has taken a hit with Benny Williams off the team and this should be a higher-scoring matchup.
