The most recent fantasy college basketball news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisLaTulip, a transfer from Illinois, will continue his career as a player on the Wright State roster. The senior guard chose to redshirt the 2015-16 season and will look to increase his playing time in the upcoming season.
Fantasy AnalysisAllen left Drexel as a freshman after averaging 9.8 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 3.5 assists per game during the 2015-16 season. He scored in double figures 14 times during 2015-16, and offers much to be desired in a young guard.
Fantasy AnalysisCarter is coming back from an ACL tear suffered at the end of January. He hopes to be ready to play by October. The 6-9 senior averaged 8.6 points and 6.0 rebounds for UNLV last season and could play a major role for the Spartans. Michigan State does not have much depth for forwards.
Fantasy AnalysisFrancis was forced to sit out the 2014-15 season due to academic transcript issues. In his first season with the Gators in 2015-16, the 6-5 guard averaged 2.0 points and 1.0 rebounds. He is likely leaving Florida to see an increased role, but he will need to improve his shooting if he wants to make an impact at another school. Francis shot only 20 percent from the field and 16 percent from three-point range last season.
Fantasy AnalysisBurton will return for his senior season at Iowa State, where the Cyclones will have to fill massive holes left by key seniors Georges Niang, Abdel Nader and Jameel McKay. The 6-4 guard was dominant at times in 2015-16, including a 19 point, five rebound performance against then third-ranked Oklahoma. Burton, along with other key players Monte Morris, Matt Thomas, and Nazareth Mitrou-Long, will need to show more consistency if the Cyclones are going to be competitive in the Big 12, but the upside is definitely there for the Marquette transfer.
Fantasy AnalysisCofer underwent foot surgery in January, therefore missing the remainder of the Seminoles' 2015-16 campaign. The sophomore participated in 11 games during the season and averaged 3.8 points, 2.0 rebounds, and 0.2 assists with 12 minutes.
Fantasy AnalysisOjo didn't record any playing time for the Seminoles during their 2015-16 season due to a meniscus tear. The center averaged 11.9 minutes per game in Florida State's 2013-14 season and will look to see similar numbers heading into his fifth year with the program.
Fantasy AnalysisMeeks will return to North Carolina, providing promise of improvement on his 2015-16 averages of 9.2 points and 5.9 rebounds per game. With the departures of players like Brice Johnson and Marcus Paige, Meeks figures to be an integral part of the Tar Heels' success this upcoming season.
Fantasy AnalysisGilmore was a reserve forward for the Rams during his two years there. He averaged 3.2 PPG and 2.8 RPG in 11 minutes per game in the 2015-16 season. Gilmore will have two years of eligibility remaining once he decides where to transfer.
Fantasy AnalysisChatman has two years of eligibility remaining. The 6-foot-8 guard saw his minutes significantly drop after his freshman season, going from 15 minutes per game to just seven minutes per game this year. He averaged 2.8 point and 1.4 rebounds per game. He has not yet decided where he will transfer to.
Fantasy AnalysisWhen Beachem originally declared for the NBA Draft, he did not hire an agent, leaving him the option to return. Beachem, a forward, averaged 12.0 PPG and 3.9 RPG in 31 minutes per game during the 2015-16 season. He could take on a bigger role due to the graduation of forward Zach Auguste.
Fantasy AnalysisAs of December it was reported that Albrecht's playing career was over due to persistent hip issues, but he will give it one more go next season at Purdue. In his lone season as a regular starter in 2014-15, Albrecht averaged 7.5 points and 3.9 assists over 32.0 minutes per game.
Fantasy AnalysisSmith will provide a shot-blocking presence in Auburn's frontcourt as he heads into his senior season. He averaged 7.1 points and 6.9 rebounds per game throughout his junior campaign with Bethune-Cookman, but struggled from the free-throw line.
Fantasy AnalysisJackson may still be upset that he lost his starting spot in the middle of the year, but either way he was still a major piece in the Eastern Kentucky lineup. Jackson finished with the third most assists of any OVC player last season. He has yet to decide where he will play next, but Jackson will have to sit out next season before becoming eligible.
