James Akinjo (DK: $6,500 FD: $6,100): James Akinjo and the Georgetown Hoyas will take on Butler in a game with a O/U of 152.5 which projects to be a fantasy goldmine. Akinjo has been excellent for the Hoyas in conference play, with a 23% usage rate and a 34% assist rate. He’s averaging 13.6 points and 6.5 assists while attempting 11 shots per game in 34 minutes of play. Akinjo managed to hit 29 FPTs last game while going 1-11 from the field as his assist rate makes him an elite play even when he struggles shooting the ball. Over his last three games, Akinjo is averaging 35 FPTs and we expect this kind of production to continue against a Butler team that ranks 238/352 in effective field goal percentage defense and 232/253 in forcing turnovers. Akinjo is much too cheap for his production as of late and is an absolute lock for us on this slate!
