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.
Aaron Henry (DK: $4,500): Today’s Must-Have is Michigan State’s value forward Aaron Henry. The “Tom Izzo Utility Man” himself is in for yet another solid day as the Spartans take on their top rivals the Michigan Wolverines as they go blow for blow in the B1G Tournament Championship this afternoon. Henry, who’s seen an uptick in minutes as of late due in part to 1.) his play on the court and 2.) due to Kyle Ahrens still lingering injury that hasn’t fully gotten him back to his normal role. Coach Izzo has found a nice extra piece to the pie in... Read More
Noah Dickerson (DK: $6,500): We look to continue our streak of nailing mispriced players, and Noah Dickerson fits the bill today. Dickerson has been terrific for the Washington Huskies over the last two games, averaging 33 minutes of play, 10.5 shot attempts, and 18 points per game, giving him an average of 43 FPTs. The minutes increase has done wonders for Dickerson as he’s grabbed 16 and 17 rebounds his last two games respectively while maintaining a formidable shot rate. Washington will play a USC team that ranks 252/353 in defensive rebounding and 226/353 in offensive rebounding, giving Dickerson ample... Read More
Emmitt Matthews Jr. (DK: $3,700): Today we are locking in a value play in Emmitt Matthews Jr. Since Bob Huggins has solidified his rotation, Matthews Jr. has seen three straight games of 26+ minutes, averaging 9.3 PPG and 7 RPG. Matthews Jr. has yet to receive a spike in pricing as over these last three games he has averaged 22.75 FPTs which absolutely crushes value at his current price. These two teams met two weeks ago, with Matthews taking 11 shots and recording 25.5 FPTs. In a game with a 145.5 O/U, Matthews Jr. has ample upside at his price... Read More
Issac Fleming (DK: $6,100): Today’s CBB Must Have is yet again another player who has awoken during conference play and now leading the way for his team down the most important stretch of the season. ECU hosts senior day for Issac Fleming and his teammates as they welcome in the injured UConn Huskies for the final game of the AAC season. Both teams have had disappointing seasons as they both sit in the bottom four of the conference standings currently and really have no shot at any postseason tournaments unless they win out. ECU has turned to our Must-Have as... Read More
DK Must Have: Nik Popovic (DK $6,800 FD $7,100) In the first matchup of the season between North Carolina State and Boston College, our team decided to Must-Have Nik Popovic. Popovic unfortunately got into early foul trouble and missed a large portion of the first half. With that being said Popovic had a huge 2nd half, finishing the game with 18 points, 4 rebounds, and 3 assists. That was good enough for an elite 1 fantasy point per minute in Popovic’s 29 minutes of play. Our team is very excited looking back at the previous box score because we feel... Read More
