Latest Fantasy College Basketball News

The most recent fantasy college basketball news from RotoWire.

Josh Fortune    G    Colorado    
Fortune continued his scoring slump Sunday, scoring five points (2-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt) to go along with four rebounds, one assist, and one block in the loss to USC.

Fantasy Analysis

Fortune lost his starting spot to Deleon Brown earlier in the week and saw just 14 minutes of action Sunday. He’s averaging just 2.8 points per game over the past five games as his senior season slips away from him. He should continue getting opportunities within the lowly Colorado lineup, but will need to show improvement quickly.
JaQuori McLaughlin    G    Oregon State    
McLaughlin struggled tremendously from the floor in Saturday’s loss, scoring just three points (1-9 FG, 0-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT) while adding five assists, two rebounds, and two steals.

Fantasy Analysis

It was by far McLaughlin’s worst shooting night this season, as he was easily overwhelmed by the relentless Oregon defense. The freshman guard has been a solid contributor for the Beavers this season, leading the team with 2.6 assists per game, and will try to get back on track Thursday against Stanford.
Darral Willis Jr.    F    Wichita State    
Willis led the Shockers with 14 points, nine rebounds, and a block in Wichita State’s loss to Illinois State on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

The junior forward continues to be a presence down low for coach Gregg Marshall’s squad, leading the team with 6.2 rebounds per game. His 32 minutes of playing time Saturday ties a career high and is a trend which should continue going forward.
Jae'Sean Tate    F    Ohio State    
Tate struggled from the floor but finished with 12 points (4-11 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three rebounds, and three steals in Sunday’s win over Michigan State.

Fantasy Analysis

The junior forward continues to carry the Buckeyes on the offensive end, leading the team with 14.1 points per game. Tate may not be a dynamic scorer, but he’s the best weapon Ohio State has and should continue seeing opportunities to contribute.
Amir Coffey    F    Minnesota    
Coffey scored just six points (2-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) to go along with seven rebounds, two assists, and a steal in Saturday’s loss to Penn State.

Fantasy Analysis

The highly-touted freshman has scored just 10 points over his past two games after going for 19 against Ohio State. Nonetheless, Coffey is still a critical part of Minnesota’s lineup and should return back to form as conference play continues. He ranks third among Big Ten freshman in scoring.
New Williams    G    Fresno State    
Williams will transfer to Fresno State, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Williams averaged just 6.4 minutes per game in his freshman year at Auburn before electing to transfer. The Santa Monica, California native returns closer to home with this move, but must sit out one year in accordance with NCAA rules.
Andre Walker    G    Loyola (MD)    
Walker scored a career-high 35 points -- including nine 3-pointers -- in the win over BU on Monday. He was 9-of-14 from the field and 8-of-9 from the line.

Fantasy Analysis

Walker helped the Greyhounds even their Patriot League record at 3-3. He has scored at least 12 points in his last eight games and has averaged 19.8 points against conference foes. The 6-0 junior is hitting 42.7 percent of his 3-pointers.
Rob Edwards    G    Cleveland State    
Edwards scored a season-high 32 points in the win over Oakland on Monday. He was 10-of-14 from the field and grabbed seven rebounds.

Fantasy Analysis

Edwards has moved into the go-to scoring role as a sophomore. He is leading the Vikings with 15.8 points and has scored 54 points in his last two games. The 6-4 guard helped Cleveland State snap a four-game losing streak.
Khallid Hart    G    Marist    
Hart scored a season-high 31 points in the overtime win against Niagara on Monday. He hit four 3-pointers and was 11-of-15 from the field.

Fantasy Analysis

Hart's production has dipped as a senior. He averaged 20.3 points last season, but is now providing 17.3 points. He has hit multiple 3-pointers in five straight games, but the Red Foxes have won just twice in their last 11 games.
Eric Fanning    G    Boston University    
Fanning provided 27 points and 13 rebounds in the loss to Loyola (MD) on Monday. He was 13-of-15 from the free-throw line.

Fantasy Analysis

Fanning has seen his scoring dip a bit from his junior season. He averaged 15.2 points last season and is providing 13.8 through 18 games. The Terriers dropped their first Patriot League game, but Fanning had his second double-double.
Alec Peters    F    Valparaiso    
Peters led the Crusaders to a blowout win over UW-Green Bay with 20 points and 16 rebounds Monday. He added four assists and hit three 3-pointers.

Fantasy Analysis

Peters looks intent on winning the Horizon League Player of the Year. Through six conference games, the senior forward is averaging 20.3 points and 12.2 rebounds. He has double-doubles in nine of his last 10 games and was just one rebound shy of the feat Saturday, although he did score 30 during that game against Cleveland State.
Jahad Thomas    F    Massachusetts-Lowell    
Thomas scored 18 points and grabbed 15 rebounds in the loss to Stony Brook on Monday. He was 7-of-13 from the field.

Fantasy Analysis

Thomas has four straight double-doubles and had a triple-double Saturday in the win over Hartford. The 6-2 guard is a sensational rebounder and has eight double-digit rebounding games. He could well lead the America East Conference in board work.
Theo Pinson    F    North Carolina    
Pinson had seven points, five rebounds and five assists in 17 minutes off of the bench Monday against Syracuse.

Fantasy Analysis

Pinson was coming off of a 12-point, 10-rebound outing Saturday. He's hit only 5-of-16 from the floor in four games since his return from a broken foot, but he has 23 rebounds, 15 assists and five steals in that stretch while topping 20 minutes in a game just once. His per-minute production is impressive, and his minutes should continue to rise as he gets back into game shape. If your roster can stomach poor shooting and inconsistent scoring, Pinson is going to help you in many ways.
Jarred Jones    F    Loyola (MD)    
Jones put up 14 points, 10 rebounds, and eight assists in the win over BU on Monday. He added four steals.

Fantasy Analysis

Jones leads the Greyhounds with 15.9 points and 7.1 rebounds, but generally is not an offensive facilitator. The 6-6 redshirt senior puts up defensive numbers as well with 1.7 steals and 1.2 blocks. He helped Loyola snap a two-game losing streak.
Justin Jackson    F    North Carolina    
Jackson had 19 points, 10 rebounds and four assists Monday against Syracuse.

Fantasy Analysis

It was the second double-double of the season for the junior, who has taken his scoring ability to a consistently high level. Jackson has at least 16 points in each of his last six games, going for at least 19 in each of his last four. The Heels have a very favorable schedule over the next two weeks with Boston College, Virginia Tech, Miami and Pitt upcoming, which should lead to plenty of points for Jackson and most of his teammates.
