College Basketball (CBB) Must-haves are our most highly recommended players for any given slate. Our experts select these picks above the rest and have determined they are most likely to reach or exceed value. These are the foundational players that we advise building your lineups around.
Luguentz Dort (DK: $7,300, FD: $7,900): Tonight’s overall Must-Have is Arizona State Guard, Luguentz Dort. Dort has simply started off his 2018-19 campaign with a 40% shot rate, which is absurd usage for any player, especially one priced in the seven thousand range on both FanDuel and DraftKings. Dort is not one dimensional, he is a terrific rebounder for a guard, showing that skill with nine rebounds in the opener against Cal State Fullerton. Luguentz Dort is going to shoot the ball plenty of times tonight and he has also shown his ability to add to the stat sheet and... Read More
Must-Have: CJ Elleby CJ Elleby (DK: $3,500): Whenever we see mispricings, we jump to take advantage of it and that’s what we have with the 6-foot-6 forward for Washington State, CJ Elleby. In Washington State’s last exhibition game, CJ Elleby started and absolutely flourished. Elleby produced a line of 14 points, 6 rebounds, and 6 assists in 25 minutes of play. Washington State will take on a Nicholls State team that Vegas thinks will keep the game close as the spread is set at just 9, giving Elleby an ever higher floor and ceiling as he should see a plethora...

DK Must Have: Rui Hachimura (7,200) There was no treat for Gonzaga fans on Halloween as it was announced that Junior Forward, Killian Tillie would miss approximately two months with a stress fracture in his ankle. Tillie’s absence left what was expected to be a massive void in the front court for the Zags. That massive void was filled by Rui Hachimura in the season opener against Idaho State. Hachimura absolutely exploded for a game high 33 points! Rui Hachimura was a very efficient 13/18 from the field and 7/9 from the free throw line on Tuesday. Hachimura crushed value... Read More
Miller Kopp (DK: $3,200): Another day, another mispricing that we plan to take full advantage of. With Aaron Falzon out for the next few weeks, Miller Kopp received the start for Northwestern in their exhibition game and he is expected to do so again tonight against New Orleans. Kopp was a top-100 recruit in this year’s class and has a beautiful stroke from deep as well as the ability to crash the boards on both ends of the court. Kopp showed the ability to be aggressive in their exhibition game against McKendree and he also took four threes in the... Read More
Brandon Williams (DK: $6,300): Our daily fantasy CBB Must-Have for this short four-game slate is the freshman guard for the Arizona Wildcats, Brandon Williams. Williams and the Wildcats will take on a Houston Baptist team that finished 333rd out of 351 teams in the rankings and is without their star center, Josh Ibarra. Last season, Houston Baptist ranked 339th overall in defense, allowing a 56% field goal rate, 40% three point rate, while allowing a very quick 15.8 seconds per position. Not only were their opponents shooting on them quickly, but their offense played at an insane tempo of 73.5... Read More
