College Basketball CBB DFS Picks 

CBB DFS Top Guards

PlayerTeamOpp.DK $DK FPPG
Kadary RichmondSHUALB900041.12
Kadary Richmond is off to a strong start with 46 and 35 DK points in the first two games. The senior is stuffing the stat sheet, averaging 16 points, 6.5 rebounds, 5.0 steals, and 4.5 assists while leading Seton Hall in usage rate (27%). He’s dominated two easy opponents so far and gets another tonight vs Albany. The price tag is high, but Richmond is doing it all right now and looks to be Seton Hall’s top overall playmaker this season. He’s firmly in play for cash.
Bruce ThorntonOSUMERRI750030.62
After breaking out in the second half of last season, Bruce Thornton is now the guy for Ohio State. The sophomore combo guard has scored 17 and 24 real points in the first two games and his 37 DK performance vs Texas A&M last outing was impressive. Thornton leads OSU in usage (29%) and shot rate (33%) thus far and that trend should continue all season as the team’s top offensive playmaker. Look for him to lead the Buckeyes to a blowout win as he’ll be a top overall DFS play.
Tyrese HunterUTRICE650023.38
First off, Max Abmas is definitely in play tonight but his expensive price makes it tough to roster in cash. Instead, we have cheaper Texas guards to consider. Tyrese Hunter really shouldn’t be priced below 7k but he’s at a slight discount because he’s “only” put up 20 and 26 DK in the first two games. Still, he’s scored double-digit points in both and offers a solid cash floor with plenty of GPP upside when he does explode for 20+ points. That might be coming tonight in a high-total matchup vs Rice. Either way, he’s a better bargain than Abmas.
Keisei TominagaNEBSBU620013.25
After missing the start of the season, Keisei Tominaga returned from his ankle injury on Monday. Hopefully he shook off some rust as he shot just 3-for-13 from the field, including 3-for-11 from three. Still, it’s a good sign that he’s shooting that much in his first game back and the efficiency should pick up as he gets more comfortable. Tominaga led Nebraska in shot rate last season and is expected to be the team’s top scoring option this year. This price presents a nice buy-low opportunity as the senior shooting guard will pop off for 20+ real points and 30+ DK soon.
Jordan KingRICHBC610036
Jordan King was a high-usage player for East Tennessee State last season and it appears he’s taking on a similar role for Richmond now. This team lost its best player (Tyler Burton) to the transfer portal, so there was a ton of playmaking responsibilities up for grabs. King leads Richmond in usage (32%) and shot rate (38%) through the first two games and it’s led to 46 and 25 DK points in those contests. The season opener saw him score 34 real points as the offense’s clear go-to scorer. Expect King to anchor Richmond tonight in a tight road matchup at Boston College, making him a safe cash play at an affordable price.
Ithiel HortonUTRICE600031.75
The other more affordable Texas guard than Max Abmas is Ithiel Horton. The UCF transfer has started the season very strong with 33 and 30 DK points in the first two games, including 17+ points scored in both. He actually leads the team in shot rate so far despite sharing a backcourt with Abmas and Tyrese Hunter. That could change, but it’s hard to ignore his production. Expect Horton to be popular because of the 6k price and everyone chasing those 30+ DK points.

CBB DFS Value Guards

PlayerTeamOpp.DK $DK FPPG
Roddy Gayle Jr.OSUMERRI590028.75
While Bruce Thornton is Ohio State’s headliner, Roddy Gayle appears to be the 1B in this backcourt. The sophomore showed flashes last season but was stuck on the bench for most of the year. Now, he’s the Buckeyes’ point guard and his usage rate is at 26% early on. The bigger role has resulted in 31 and 25 DK points in the first two games as Gayle is averaging 13 points, 7 rebounds, and 5.5 assists. He’s a great value in all formats tonight in an easy matchup vs Merrimack.
Jayden EppsGURU570027.62
This might change game-to-game, but Jayden Epps appears to be Georgetown’s leading playmaker this season. The Illinois transfer went off for 22 points and 33 DK last game while taking 19 shots with a 32% usage rate. That was the Hoyas’ only competitive game so far, so it seems Epps is the guy in close matchups. Even in a blowout season-opening win, he had 22 DK with 11 assists. Though this is a tough road matchup at Rutgers, Epps is a bargain in the mid-5k range.
Gavin GriffithsRUGU530016.08
Gavin Griffiths has one good game so far this season but it was a massive 25-point, 31 DK outburst where he shot 9-for-15 from the field. The 6-foot-8 freshman actually leads Rutgers in usage and shot rates this season through three games, but it’s only translated to one big outing and two duds. Still, his 29 minutes last game were a good sign despite coming off the bench. Griffiths was a top-75 high school recruit and was one of Rutgers’ best players over the summer in exhibition games. He has GPP upside to smash his price tag tonight.
DeLonnie HuntRICHBC510023.75
Jordan King headlines Richmond’s attack, but DeLonnie Hunt is a solid value in the 5k range tonight. The Wagner transfer is now Richmond’s starting point guard and that role has led to 28 and 19 DK points in the first two games. Hunt logged 30 minutes in both games and should be locked into PG playing time tonight in one of the closer spreads of the slate. He’s a decent cash value at this price.
Donald Hand Jr.BCRICH480022.75
If you want Boston College exposure tonight, Quinten Post and Jaeden Zackary are the top plays but both are priced so high. A cheaper option from BC is Donald Hand Jr. The redshirt freshman is the sixth-man and he’s one of BC’s best three-point shooters early on. Hand has 20 and 25 DK points in the first two games this year and his perimeter scoring will be valuable in a tight matchup vs Richmond. In BC’s one close game so far, he shot it 11 times and scored 14 points.
Dylan AndrewsUCLALIU440019.75
After riding the bench last year, Dylan Andrews is now UCLA’s starting point guard with Tyger Campbell gone. He had a quiet season opener but woke up for 18 points and 27 DK last game. There’s a ton of usage and shot volume up for grabs with the Bruins losing so many players from last season and the opportunity is there for Andrews to step up. He’s way underpriced below 5k tonight and should be a popular value despite the incoming blowout.
Jaden McClanahanUTVAUCHAR370030.5
Utah Valley had to replace all five starters from last year and Jaden McClanahan has quickly become one of their top playmakers. The senior point guard barely played last season but his role has increased a ton now. He’s put up 28 and 32 DK in the first two games with 13 rebounds in one outing and 10 assists in the other. On the road at Charlotte in a low-scoring game is tough to trust, but McClanahan is very cheap at sub-4k and is a solid cash value if he continues producing like he has.
Nik GravesCHARUTVAU340022
The low total in the Charlotte/Utah Valley game makes it tough to roster many players from this matchup. Nik Graves, though, is simply way too cheap to ignore. After riding the bench last year, the sophomore is now starting in Charlotte’s backcourt. He has 23 and 20 DK in the first two games with double-digit points scored in both. He logged 28 minutes last game and should be on the court enough tonight to return value at his sub-4k price.

CBB DFS Top Forwards

PlayerTeamOpp.DK $DK FPPG
Clifford OmoruyiRUGU880025.42
Clifford Omoruyi was a dominant center last year for Rutgers and he’s off to a strong start this season. The big man has 32 and 34 DK in Rutgers’ two competitive games so far and will be producing like that most nights this season as a consistent double-double threat. Omoruyi will have a notable size and talent advantage in the paint tonight vs Georgetown and should come through for cash lineups even at this expensive price.
Rienk MastNEBSBU860033.75
Through three games, Rienk Mast leads Nebraska in usage rate at 26% and appears to be one of their top players. The Bradley transfer is a versatile center who can score in the paint, shoot it from three-point range, rack up rebounds, and pass well for a big. He’s put up 44 and 32 DK in the past two games with a double-double in both. Stony Brook is a poor defensive team and undersized, so it’s a good matchup for Mast to produce like a stud cash forward tonight.
Adem BonaUCLALIU840032.88
Adem Bona was the fourth or fifth offensive option for UCLA last year but he’s now in a much bigger role. The center is set to be one of the Bruins’ top players, lead scorers, and a nightly double-double threat with more minutes. He went bonkers in the season opener with 28 points, 9 rebounds, 4 blocks, and 51 DK. That’s his GPP ceiling when he’s dominating in the paint and LIU won’t offer much resistance there tonight. Of course, his 14 DK last game shows his floor when he gets into foul trouble or isn’t making shots.
Aundre HyattRUGU660026
After a quiet season opener, Aundre Hyatt has woken up in the past two games. Rutgers’ power forward had 17 points in a blowout win and then 19 points, 8 rebounds, and a stat-filled 40 DK effort last game. That’s a good indication of his GPP ceiling when Hyatt is producing across the board. Even in a low-scoring game tonight, he offers some upside to break the slate at his best and it helps that he has strong 26% usage and 27% shot rates so far.

CBB DFS Value Forwards

PlayerTeamOpp.DK $DK FPPG
Dillon MitchellUTRICE610032.38
While Dylan Disu remains out, Dillon Mitchell is locked into playing time in Texas’ frontcourt. He’s put up 27 and 37 DK in the first two games with stat production across the board and 25-30 minutes played in both. He had a double-double last game, which is a great sign that he’s taking full advantage of the increased role and minutes with Disu out. This $6100 price is very affordable compared to what Mitchell has been doing this season, and Rice presents another easy matchup tonight.
Trevin DoriusUTVAUCHAR570022.12
Utah Valley loves to use its bigs as top offensive options and Trevin Dorius presents some interesting value here. The 7-footer started every game last year for Utah State but took a backseat offensively. His role has increased now with the offseason transfer. Last game, he scored 16 points with eight rebounds for a solid 26 DK outing. Charlotte boasts a ton of size in the paint, so this is a tough matchup. Still, Dorius can exceed value in GPP lineups.
Brock CunninghamUTRICE560020.38
Like last year, Brock Cunningham is a top bench option for Texas this season and he’s essentially the sixth-man right now while Dylan Disu is out. Those 20-25 minutes are allowing him to do just enough in multiple stat categories to return value at this mid-5k price. Cunningham has 23 and 17 DK in the first two games, both blowout wins for Texas. Tonight should be another big win and Cunningham will be on the floor plenty in the second half.
Chris MaidohSBUNEB550022.67
Stony Brook should lose big here vs Nebraska, but Chris Maidoh is a decent value. The senior big man leads the team in usage rate thus far and has been doing just enough in multiple stat categories. In Stony Brook’s two competitive games, Maidoh put up 29 and 22 DK points despite not scoring in double figures either time. He’ll have to deal with Rienk Mast down low, but Maidoh has already proven he can return value even when his team loses big.
Kadin ShedrickUTRICE430019.75
How about one more Texas value forward? Kadin Shedrick transfers in from Virginia and his 6-foot-11 frame makes him the Longhorns’ biggest body down low. That could lead to more minutes tonight against Rice’s Max Fiedler, who stands 6-foot-11 too. Shedrick has been coming off the bench in the first two games and only logged 11 minutes in both. Maybe the role increases tonight if his size is needed more. Either way, this is really cheap for a guy that dropped 30 DK in the season opener and was productive on a per-minute basis at UVA.
