RotoWire CBB Invitational: Putting Our DFS Skills to the Test

This Saturday was the first week of our college hoops expert contest, which stacks up several experts from RotoWire and other fantasy websites in one comprehensive competition. Several RotoWire beat writers are featured, as well as entries from websites such as RotoGrinders, Fantasy Insiders, Numberfire, Daily Fantasy Cafe and many more.


The challenge is an eight-week, “survivor” style contest held on FanDuel. We narrowed down the field to 27 total participants, and each individual was given 10 total entries in Round One. After the early slate on FanDuel was complete, 128 of those entries survived for the next round of competition. The field will be cut in half every week until the eight most consistent experts square off in one final battle on March 26th, 2016.

The following handful of players closed out the 2014 calendar in fantastic fashion and certainly set the stage for the early winter portion of the NCAA Men’s Basketball schedule.

College Campus Tour (Pt. IV) – NCAA Hoops

This time, the College Campus Tour will take us around the nation to check in on some of the best second-generation stars donning NCAA Division I uniforms this season. The list of men’s basketball players whose fathers also showcased talent on the hardwood as student athletes is more extensive than one might think. The current crop includes names such as Shawn Kemp Jr. (Washington), Treavon Jackson (Wisconsin) and John Horford (Florida); all three of which have done their surnames well. However, the focus here is on a few sons that are each performing at exceptionally high levels for their respective programs.
