Latest Fantasy College Basketball News

The most recent fantasy college basketball news from RotoWire.

Braxton Huggins    G    New Mexico State    
Huggins will transfer to Fresno State, Jon Rothstein of FanRag Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Huggins is coming off a breakout 2016-17 campaign, where he averaged 13.7 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.3 assists across 28 minutes per game. He also shot an impressive 42 percent from behind the arc on just over six shots attempts per game. Huggins will sit one season before playing his final year of eligibility at Fresno State.
Terry Henderson    G    North Carolina State    
Henderson had his sixth-year waiver denied Friday, thus ending his college career, Joe Giglio of the Charlotte News & Observer reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Henderson applied for the sixth year of eligibility after having missed one season due to injury and another after he transferred from West Virginia. While the NCAA does not make the details public, it's likely because they view transfers as a choice, and therefore, they typically don't give that year back, according to Giglio. Henderson was North Carolina State's second-leading scorer last season after averaging 13.8 points per game.
Sedee Keita    F       
Keita announced Friday that he will transfer from South Carolina.

Fantasy Analysis

Keita played a minimal role over the course of his freshman season, averaging just 9.6 minutes per game and even served a one-game suspension at one point. With the program returning its key frontcourt players from last season, Keita will now look to finish out his three years of remaining eligibility at another school of his choice.
Eli Wright    G    Mississippi State    
Wright asked Mississippi State for his release from the program and he intends to transfer, Evan Daniels of Scout.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Wright is a former four-star recruit who appeared in 31 games for the Bulldogs last season and averaged 3.5 points and 1.6 rebounds per game. It's possible the now-sophomore was expecting a larger role in his first season at Mississippi State, but regardless of his reasoning, Wright will look to finish out his three remaining seasons of eligibility at another school of his choice.
Ronnie Suggs    G    Missouri    
Suggs announced Thursday that he will transfer to Missouri.

Fantasy Analysis

Suggs is coming off a sophomore season at Bradley where he was no longer a crucial part of the team's rotation. This came after a freshman season where Suggs played over 30 minutes per game. He'll now finish out his final two years of eligibility at Missouri after sitting out one season due to NCAA transfer rules.
Jalen Coleman-Lands    G       
Coleman-Lands will transfer from Illinois in pursuit of another program, Evan Daniels of Scout.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Coleman-Lands saw a decline in playing time and resulting production last season, as his numbers dropped nearly across the board. He averaged 8.0 points and 2.3 rebounds as a sophomore with the Fighting Illini last season, but Coleman-Lands will now finish out his final two years of eligibility at the program of his choice.
Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk    G    Kansas    
Mykhailiuk will return for his senior year at Kansas, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Mykhailuk decided to test out the draft waters without hiring an agent following the completion of his Junior season, but has ultimately decided to return to school. The Ukraine native saw his role increase with the team in this past year, as he averaged 27.3 minutes per game compared to just 11.2 and 12.8 his first two seasons with the team. He will look to increase his stock next season with the Jayhawks.
Noah Blackwell    G    Fresno State    
Blackwell is transferring to Fresno State from Long Beach State, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Blackwell, who averaged 8.1 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.9 assists across 24.4 minutes per game last season, will have to sit out a season before being eligible to suit up for Fresno State. He's likely hoping to have a more prominent role on his new team.
Caleb Swanigan    F    Purdue    
Swanigan has opted to stay in the NBA Draft, foregoing his junior season at Purdue, Jeff Goodman of ESPN reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Swanigan averaged 18.5 points, 12.5 rebounds and 3.1 assists across 32.5 minutes per game last season. He has the size and skill to be an NBA power forward and is a projected late-first-round selection.
Frank Jackson    G    Duke    
Jackson underwent right foot surgery and is expected to be fully recovered in July, Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reports.

Fantasy Analysis

The surgery doesn't seem to be too serious, as Jackson is expected to be fully recovered prior to NBA training camp. That being said, he's tentatively questionable for the NBA Summer League, which kicks off in early July. He's a projected second round selection.
Mark Alstork    G       
Alstork is transferring from Wright State to Illinois, Scott Richey of the Illinois News-Gazette reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Last season, during his third year of collegiate basketball, Alstork averaged 19.0 points, 4.7 rebounds and 3.5 assists across 30.2 minutes per game. As a result of his impressive play, he will be moving on to Illinois in an effort to showcase his skills on a bigger stage.
Corey Sanders    G    Rutgers    
Sanders has withdrawn from the NBA Draft and will return to Rutgers for his junior season.

Fantasy Analysis

Sanders has played over 30 minutes per game in both of his seasons for Rutgers. He took a minor step back in his sophomore season (12.8 PPG, 38.2 percent shooting), down from 15.9 points on 42.3 percent shooting his freshman season. The guard showed consistent scoring in the second half of the season with double-digit scoring in 15 of the final 19 games.
DJ Wilson    F    Michigan    
Wilson has elected to stay in the NBA Draft, Jonathan Givony of Draft Express reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Wilson started 36 of 38 games this past season, playing 30.4 minutes per game. The junior forward will join Derrick Walton and Zak Irvin as starters for the Wolverines who will not return next season.
Johnathan Williams III    F    Gonzaga    
Williams will return to Gonzaga, Gary Parrish of CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Williams started all 39 games last season for Gonzaga, though he played only 24.3 minutes per game due to the Bulldogs' deep roster. The senior forward averaged 10.2 points and 6.4 rebounds per game in his only season with Gonzaga after transferring from Missouri. He will likely have a larger role with the team next season as fellow frontcourt mates, Przemek Karnowski and Zach Collins, will go to the NBA.
Omer Yurtseven    C    North Carolina State    
Yurtseven has pulled out of the NBA Draft and will return to North Carolina State, Evan Daniels of Scout.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Yurtseven was only testing his NBA draft stock after his freshman season as he never signed an agent. He started 14 of 22 games for the Wolfpack this past season, scoring 5.9 points per game on 45.7 percent shooting. The rising-sophomore center showed his potential on the boards with a game of 16 rebounds against Pittsburgh this past season.
