Stephen Thompson Jr. (DK: $7,500 FDuel: $7,500): Tres Tinkle of the Oregon State Beavers is considered highly doubtful tonight, which leaves a 29% usage rate, 29% shot rate and 25% assist rate on the table for his teammates to pick up. One player we expect to pick up the bulk of these statistics is Stephen Thompson Jr., who already has a solid 24% usage, 27% shot rate and 19% assist rate. KenPom projects Oregon State at 75 points which is tied for the highest projected team total on the slate as they match up against a USC team that has the 33rd-shortest possession time in the country. We expect this to be a huge tempo increase for the Beavers and with their star player out, Stephen Thompson Jr. has a terrific opportunity to make the most of this situation. We expect him to play nearly every minute in this game as he should be locked into your lineups!
