Hope you guys are liking this new way of us posting the CBB breakdown I personally really like it as it gives you more players to choose from outside of the core we were doing before. The breakdowns have been killing it so make sure to keep checking for them every day. With all that being said here is our breakdown for the CBB slate today.
Luka Garza ($9,800)-
Garza is hard to fit in your lineups because of the huge price tag but he is involved in 57% of Iowa’s high-powered offense and is pretty much a guaranteed double-double bonus on a nightly basis. With McCaffery likely out tonight, Iowa should focus on getting Garza the ball even more than his already ridiculous 27 usage rate. Wieskamp is also a fine choice to use from Iowa as well.
Eric Ayala ($6,300)-
I probably will not be targeting any Maryland players tonight but the best point per production play is likely Ayala. Wiggins is the best player on the team but with Morsell likely back tonight I do not want to touch his salary on this slate. Ayala’s price has dropped $800 since the last game and I wouldn’t hate having him in some lineups. We mostly suggest this play though in GPP or multi-entry GPP since he is not our favorite play.
Aljami Durham ($6,300)-
With a tough defensive matchup today I do not like targeting this game at all but with Franklin likely out today, Durham could see an increased usage rate and for his price, there are far worse ways you could go. Once again much like the Maryland suggestion, we suggest using this one mostly in multi-entry GPP games.
D’Mitrik Trice ($7,600)-
I will likely be fading this game completely but the only one I trust on Wisconsin is Trice. He averages over 30 minutes per game and has the highest usage rate for the Badgers.
Brandon Avarette ($6,000)-
I do not like BYU tonight at all tonight versus the best team in the country but Avarette will be on the court for around 30 minutes and is a solid player with a good usage rate in a high total game.
Jalen Suggs ($7,400)-
Suggs came back last game and played 22 minutes because of foul trouble. I am doing whatever I can to get him in my lineups tonight. He has a usage rate of nearly 20 but has been dealing with an injury and looks to be healthy coming into tonight’s game. Kispert and Timme are great plays on tonight’s slate also. Because of his foul trouble and injuries, he could be lower owned which would be huge in GPP for a player of his upside.
Ayo Dosunmu ($9,300)-
His price is crazy high but he is a consistent player that posts a 24 usage rate and fills up the stat sheet for Illinois. For me, this slate comes down to Dosunmu and Garza and I lean Garza. Andre Corbello is a great cheaper play for Illinois tonight.
Chase Audige ($6,400)-
Audige is on the court for nearly 30 minutes a night and he posts a usage rate over 20. For his modest price tag, he fills the stat sheet and is a good player to target in DFS with a good matchup.
Evan Mobley ($7,300)-
Mobley has had some poor performances as of late so he might be lower owned than he should be. Mobley typically scores a decent amount and dominates the boards. I like him to have a bounce-back type of game tonight.
James Akinjo ($7,800)-
Akinjo has a 20 usage rate and is on the floor nearly every minute of the game. With so many high-priced studs on this slate, I think Akinjo will be a forgotten man tonight making him a prime candidate for GPPs. Jamari Baker is also a solid play if you need some salary savings.
They are dealing with Covid issues so I am personally staying away from this game, Issac Bonton is someone I will consider depending on the late news.
Matt Bradley is likely out tonight, I am probably fading this game completely with all the uncertainty but Markale Foreman is on my radar if Bradley is out.
Johnny Juzang ($4,400)-
There are a lot of players I like tonight for UCLA but with all the high-priced guys I wanted to feature Juzang. Juzang averages nearly 30 minutes per game and is way underpriced. He struggles with production at times but he unlocks some salary to stack your lineup with studs. Tyger Campbell and Jaime Jaquez are also on my radar tonight with Chris Smith out for the year.
Alonso Verge ($6,900)-
With Badgley coming back I am unsure how the lineup shakes out and how it affects everyone’s usage rates so I am approaching this game with caution. Verge has the highest shot rate on the team and I tend to think that with Badgley coming back that will be the only category that doesn’t change much. Martin is also on my radar for this game.
