Good Evening RotoRadar members! College basketball is well under way and now all teams have played at least one conference game, and this is when we find out who’s who. Tonight is a 8 game slate loaded with potential. We are targeting two of the highest projected scoring games tonight in Arizona @ UCLA, and Arizona State @ USC both projected to have a combined score of 150 or higher. It’s hard to say you want to avoid a team that one of the highest ranked teams in the nation, but tonight we are steering away from Michigan State, because ever sense Valentine has gone down they just don’t quite look the same, and have been spreading the wealth around so it can be difficult to find who the nights top dog will be. Lets take a look at some key players we like in today’s match ups.
Stefan Moody, Ole Miss: Whats not to like about this star player? He is clearly the teams most viable option when it comes to scoring, and has only scored less than 21 points in one contest all year. He also can fill the stat sheet elsewhere as he has had games of 5 or more assists five times, and has more than 3 steals in three contests. Tonight against Alabama we predict a major night for Moody.
Willie Atwood, Arizona State: Atwood is a sneaky pick tonight as we don’t believe him to be very high owned. Those guys who play on the west coast never seem to get love from half the country because everyone is asleep by the time they tip, and tonight isn’t any different with a 10:30 pm start time. Atwood is the only true PF one this roster, and he continues to get more and more minutes each game. He doesn’t have the easiest matchup of the year facing USC, but anyone who gets 30 plus minutes on most nights when he isn’t in foul trouble is a solid pick for a 6k price tag.
Zach Auguste, Notre Dame: Auguste is another one of those guys you can count on to give you solid numbers, with the exception of one game where he played in Virginia, one of the nations top teams, and had his worst outing of the year. However tonights matchup is very favorable , and he has a high floor and is projected out to score about 29 fantasy points.
**Remember to play this lineup in cash games (5050’s, double ups) and also throw it in some 3 man tournaments. If you like it can be used for a GPP also, as there is high upside for this lineup, but remember bankroll management!
Good Night & Good Luck.
