The most recent fantasy college basketball news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisIn his first season with the Spartans, Forbes averaged 8.5 points and 1.8 3-pointers. The Cleveland State transfer could be in for a big jump in production with Travis Trice moving on.
Fantasy AnalysisValentine is coming off a breakout junior season in which he nearly doubled his scoring average to 14.5 points. He should be among the candidates for Big 10 Player of the Year.
Fantasy AnalysisGill-Caesar. a 6-6 wing, averaged 9.1 points and 3.0 rebounds for the Tigers last year. He will have to sit out the 2015-16 season, but will have three years of eligibility remaining to help the Aztecs.
Fantasy AnalysisJones had been in line to see a slight increase in minutes during his senior season after averaging 4.7 PPG, 3.0 APG and 2.3 RPG in 2014-15. However, he certainly would have been challenged by newcomers such as 4-star point guard Bryant Crawford. With the team expecting considerable depth at the position for 2015-16, Jones was deemed expendable following his second notable violation of the Athletics Department policy.
Fantasy AnalysisMoss recorded 17.5 points and 9.2 rebounds per game during his junior season to help lead the Bulls to the NCAA Tournament. Because Moss had been on probation for a theft earlier during his time at Buffalo, the university acted quickly to kick him out of school. He'll likely have to head to the junior college ranks or head overseas if he hopes to play anywhere this season.
Fantasy AnalysisYakwe is a 6-7 forward who is native to Mali. He is a primarily a defender, but could grow into a well-rounded player. With the extreme turnover on the Red Storm roster, Yakwe could get playing time as a freshman.
Fantasy AnalysisNewkirk averaged 5.9 points and 2.7 assists with Pittsburgh last season. There are likely still question marks surrounding his health as he is coming off microfracture surgery, but he will have to sit out a year given transfer rules, so he has plenty of time to get healthy.
Fantasy AnalysisNoskowiak has been dealing with a few legal issues this spring and summer. He was charged with operating while intoxicated and first-degree recklessly endangering safety. Noskowiak was then charged with two more misdemeanors this month. It looks like his collegiate career is done before it even got started.
Fantasy AnalysisThe Bears went 3-1 on their tour of Austrlia. Brown scored at least 16 points in every game and averaged 17.8 points in the four games. The 6-7 wing looks primed to be one of the leading freshmen scorers.
Fantasy AnalysisSyracuse only has nine scholarships this season, so there didn't seem to a place for the 6-9 Diagne. The middle of the 2-3 zone will be handled by the returning Dajuan Coleman (knee) and Chinonso Obokoh.
Fantasy AnalysisPaul never suited up for the Illini after transferring from Western Michigan after the 2012-13 season. The Illini will have to hope LeRon Black is ready for a bigger role as a sophomore.
Fantasy AnalysisStapleton would have had to sit out the 2015-16 season anyway in order to comply with the NCAA transfer rules, but the practice time missed with his new squad could be costly. Based on the timetable provided, Stapleton could return to practice before season's end, and the 6-foot-6 guard will almost certainly be ready for the start of the 2016-17 campaign. At that point, Stapleton will have three years of remaining eligibility.
Fantasy AnalysisIn May, Noskowiak was charged with operating while intoxicated, which was accompanied by a felony charge of first-degree recklessly endangering safety. To make matters worse, he was charged with a pair of misdemeanors earlier this month, namely criminal damage to property and disorderly conduct. The Iowa State program has yet to comment on Noskowiak's legal troubles, but his college career may be in peril before it even begins.
Fantasy AnalysisEubanks was the top-rated recruit for the Crimson Tide, but the NCAA was not able to clear his high school transcripts in time for the 2015-16 season. It remains to be seen when and where the 6-5 guard will play, but it won't be for Alabama.
Fantasy AnalysisCheatam has not been allowed to compete on the Golden Eagles' trip to Italy, but the 6-5 guard should be in the starting lineup for Marquette at the beginning of the season.
