College Basketball CBB DFS Picks
Top CBB DFS Guards
The Florida State transfer is now at Miami and is one of their best players right away. The point-forward can fill up the stat sheet in multiple ways and will be a top DFS play in all formats tonight and all year. In the opener, Matthew Cleveland had 16 points, 10 rebounds, four assists, two blocks, and 39 DK. That’s a good sign that Cleveland is taking full advantage of his role on a new team that lost Isaiah Wong and Jordan Miller from last year. Cleveland is a top cash guard on the DK slate.
Wade Taylor IV
Texas A&M’s dynamic backcourt duo of Wade Taylor and Tyrece Radford is back and will be among the top guard combos in the country. Taylor was excellent in the season opener with 16 points, six assists, four rebounds, two steals, and 35 DK points. That stat-stuffing tendency will be there all season for a guy who averaged 16.3 points and 6.6 assists/rebounds per game last year while running A&M’s point. On this slate, Taylor might be better for GPP because it is a tougher road matchup at Ohio State.
After a mini-jump last year, Cameron Hildreth looks poised for a full-on breakout this season. He went bonkers in the opener with 33 points, six rebounds, five assists, and 53 DK points. Hildreth is the team’s alpha scorer now that Tyree Appleby is gone and he has to take even more usage in the Wake backcourt with Damari Monsanto out. This matchup vs Georgia should be fast-paced and high-scoring as one of the top games to target on the slate. Hildreth is the top play from both sides.
Jaykwon Walton has transferred over from Wichita State and he’s in line to be one of Memphis’ top playmakers this season. The senior wing led Memphis in scoring in the opener with 19 points on a 25% usage rate. He also added enough ancillary stats to put up 31 DK. Though it was against easy competition, Walton should be posting these stat lines regularly on an uptempo Memphis squad. He’ll surely be a top performer tonight against Missouri in the highest total of the slate. On FD, he’s an elite play at just $6700.
Virginia has replaced four starters from last year but Reece Beekman is back to be Virginia’s top playmaker. He went off in the first game for a stat-filled 39 DK points (16 points, 7 assists, 4 rebounds, 3 steals) while leading the team in usage and shot rates. With so much changeover, Beekman will be UVA’s top-scoring and offensive option early on and likely all year. This is a big pace-boost spot for Virginia against an uptempo Florida team. It puts Beekman in a great spot for cash lineups with a strong floor.
Spencer Johnson took a leap forward last season but he’s expected to take another this year. The senior should be BYU’s alpha scorer and playmaker with the team losing a few pieces from last season, including Rudi Williams. That was evident in the season opener with Robinson scoring 20 points and filling up the stat sheet with seven assists and five rebounds for 37 DK. In a tight non-con matchup vs San Diego State, expect the ball to be in Johnson’s hands plenty as he provides a safe cash floor.
With Isaiah Wong and Jordan Miller gone, Wooga Poplar is expected to take another jump this season and could end up being Miami’s top scorer. He didn’t disappoint in the opener with 21 points on 16 shot attempts, including 5-for-9 from three. Nijel Pack and Matthew Cleveland are manning the backcourt too, but Poplar might be the go-to scorer more often than not. Until we see more of a sample size, limit to to GPPs – but this DK price is much cheaper than Pack for similar production.
Value CBB DFS Guards
Caleb Love is a value on DK but appropriately priced on FD. He had a relatively quiet opener with 12 points and 24 DK, but it did come in a massive blowout win. In Arizona’s exhibitions, he scored 23 and 17 points. Expect Love to be much more involved offensively in this high-scoring matchup vs Duke. He has plenty of experience facing Duke and playing in Cameron Indoor from his time at UNC, so Zona could lean on him more often than not – especially if he gets hot from three. Love always has GPP upside to smash the slate and his DK price is very cheap.
Missouri has a ton of mispriced guys on this slate. Nick Honor tops the list as the senior point guard who just scored 18 points with a stat-stuffing 31 DK output in the first game. On the DK slate, he simply shouldn’t be priced below 6k and is a clear cash bargain in this uptempo, high-scoring matchup vs Memphis. If you’re playing on FD, Sean East is way underpriced. Tamar Bates and Caleb Grill are decent values on both sites too.
Jahvon Quinerly goes from Alabama to Memphis and will be asked to replace some of the Kendric Davis production in this backcourt. He’s not Davis, but Quinerly can man the point guard spot well and push the pace as Memphis likes to do. He’s a great value on both DK and FD as long as he’s priced below 6k. Quinerly “only” had 20 DK in the season opener, but he did so by accruing stats in multiple categories. In an uptempo, high-scoring game, Quinerly offers some cheap exposure.
After showing flashes last year as a freshman, Kylan Boswell is stepping into a much bigger role this year as Arizona’s lead point guard with Kerr Kriisa gone. In the opener, Boswell led the team in scoring with 18 points and dropped 31 DK points as well. He should be priced way higher than his cheap DK and FD salaries. Boswell is a popular breakout candidate in college hoops and that first game performance is a great sign that he’ll be leaned on offensively.
Caleb Foster was one of Duke’s prized freshman recruits who should be DFS-relevant all season. Though he didn’t start the season opener, Foster still played 29 minutes off the bench and appears to be Duke’s top reserve player right now. He’s a combo guard who can handle the ball well, get to the rim for buckets, and will be a key backup to Jeremy Roach/Tyrese Proctor in the backcourt. He scored 15 points with 21 DK in the first game, and we could see a similar stat line tonight in a high-scoring matchup.
Jabri Abdur-Rahim was a bench player last year for Georgia, but the senior will now be starting on the wing. He led the team in scoring in the season opener vs Oregon with 18 points in 32 minutes, putting up 27 DK as well. Now we get him below 5k in a fast-paced game vs Wake Forest? If you want any Georgia value, Justin Hill is cheap enough as the lead point guard.
Last year, Isaac McKneely was Virginia’s sixth-man as a freshman and logged starter-level minutes at times. This season, he’s expected to be UVA’s secondary playmaker next to Reece Beekman. That was evident in the season opener with McKneely scoring 15 points with four assists, four rebounds, and 28 DK. He’s just way too cheap on the DK slate for his new role and now gets a pace-boost vs Florida. Another underpriced Virginia value is Ryan Dunn.
Hunter Sallis has transferred over from Gonzaga and will be a key piece in Wake’s backcourt now. With Tyree Appleby gone, there is a ton of usage and shot volume up for grabs. Hildreth is taking on most of that, but Sallis’ defense and two-way ability is clutch while Damari Monsanto is sidelined. Sallis had 19 points and 24 DK in the season opener. Maybe he isn’t scoring that much every game, but this is a very cheap price for a starter in one of the highest totals of the slate.
Hayden Hefner had been a bench player for Texas A&M for the past three years, but he’s now moving into a starting role. The senior is now A&M’s starting wing with Dexter Dennis gone from last season. In the opener, Hefner’s 19 points and 33% usage rate actually led the team. That won’t be the case every game, but it’s a good sign that he’s taking advantage of a new role. Either way, getting a starting wing player at these cheap prices seems like a steal.
Top CBB DFS Forwards
Kyle Filipowski could’ve gone pro but he’s back at Duke and will be a DFS stud all year just like last season. The big man went off for 25 points and 37 DK in the season-opening blowout win. His 26% usage rate and 30% shot rate led the team, which is something we’ll likely see most games for Duke despite all the talent around him. Fililpowski has a tougher matchup against Oumar Ballo and Arizona here, so he might be better suited for GPP lineups. On the FD slate, though, he’s more affordable for cash.
PJ Hall is back as Clemson’s stud big man after dominating opposing frontcourts the previous two years. He picked up right where he left off with 20 points and a stat-filled 33 DK outing in the season opener. Hall saw an insane 42% usage rate in that game and should be the focal point of Clemson’s offense all season long. UAB doesn’t have a scary frontcourt defense and Hall is a safe cash forward on the DK slate.
Wake’s senior big man had a great first game with 24 points, nine rebounds, and 43 DK. Yes, it came against Elon, but Andrew Carr looks like he’ll be one of the team’s top scorers this season. Wake needs other guys besides Hildreth to step up now that Tyree Appleby is gone and Damari Monsanto is sidelined to start the year. Carr is one of those at the center spot and he’s locked into playing time while Efton Reid awaits his transfer waiver ruling.
David Jones joined Memphis this offseason and he’ll be one of their top all-around playmakers. He’s been a DFS stud for the past couple of seasons at St. John’s and DePaul, so we’ll see what his role ends up being at Memphis. In the opener, he only had 22 DK points but scored 15 real points and led the team in both usage and shot rates. People may fade him after a so-so first game, but the GPP upside is there to break the slate at his best in this high-scoring matchup.
Noah Carter is stepping into a bigger role this season in Mizzou’s frontcourt with Kobe Brown gone to the NBA, especially with center Connor Vanover suspended to start the season. In the opener, Carter had 27 DK points with 15 points scored and six rebounds. His 25% shot rate was second on the team behind Nick Honor, which is a good sign that he’ll be more involved offensively. His DK price is more GPP territory, but he’s a cash bargain on FD.
Javian Davis was a decent backup big for UAB last year but he’s now taking on starting center minutes with Trey Jamison gone. In the season opener, Davis went off for 20 points, 15 rebounds, and 48 DK points as the UAB attack relied heavily on him and Eric Gaines. The matchup was against Bradley, though, and now he has to deal with Clemson’s PJ Hall tonight. Temper expectations a little, but the GPP ceiling is obviously there now that Davis is in a bigger role.
Value CBB DFS Forwards
Last year, Ian Schieffelin was just a role player for Clemson but had a few good games at the end of the season. With Hunter Tyson and Brevin Galloway gone, his role is expanding as a key wing/power forward in the Tigers’ lineup. Schieffelin had 16 points, seven rebounds, and 29 DK in the season opener and he posted a double-double in the exhibition game. He’s a great cash bargain on the DK slate as long as he’s priced under 6k.
Tennessee has a deep rotation, but Jonas Aidoo is the team’s top big man and the only one with real size at 6-foot-11. That’ll be needed tonight against Wisconsin 7-footer Steven Crowl. Last year, Aidoo was more of a bench player but that’s changing this season with the Vols losing a few bigs from that team. In the first game, Aidoo had 27 DK with a solid stat line of four points, eight rebounds, and four blocks. His prices are pretty cheap for a guy who might be in the mid-6k range for most of this season.
Keshad Johnson transfers over from San Diego State and will be a big part of Arizona’s frontcourt this season with Azuolas Tubelis departed. Johnson started the season strong with 14 points, seven rebounds, and six blocks/steals for a 33 DK outing. We should see these stat-filled performances from the veteran power forward all year. Tonight against Duke, his defensive versatility and rebounding will provide a safe cash floor. He’s another Arizona player who’s too cheap for his expanded role this season, especially in a fast-paced game flow.
If you want some more cheap exposure to the highest total on the slate, Aidan Shaw is a great salary-saver. The sophomore big man didn’t start the opener, but he did put up 31 DK points thanks to his nine rebounds and seven blocks/steals. Shaw is one of the guys who’s stepping into a larger role this year with Kobe Brown gone. At 6-foot-8, he’s the tallest player in Missouri’s rotation and his size will be needed more tonight vs Memphis’ Jordan Brown.
Lynn Kidd is now starting in Virginia Tech’s frontcourt with Grant Basile and Justyn Mutts gone. Last year, Kidd was a backup who only started a handful of games. That role is changing this season for the senior big man. He had 14 points and 11 rebounds in the season opener, which is a great sign. At sub-5k on the DK slate, he’s a definite value against an undersized South Carolina lineup.
With Darrion Trammell out, Elijah Saunders started for San Diego State in the opener. He put up 20 DK points with nine points scored, five rebounds, and two steals. Check on Trammel’s status before this game, but expect Saunders to start again if he’s out. It’s clutch to get a near-min price starter with 20 DK upside, though it is a tougher matchup vs BYU.
