The most recent fantasy college basketball news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisWoods started 22 games and made 30 appearances with the Bonnies in 2015-16, averaging 3.5 points and 2.4 rebounds in 13 minutes per game. The forward was expected to gain a bigger role as a sophomore this season. Woods hasn't decided where he will spend his last three years of eligibility.
Fantasy AnalysisAltman also noted that Brooks' foot issue was not a fracture. Brooks led the team in average points and assists in the 2015-16 season, posting 16.7 points, 5.4 rebounds, 3.1 assists, and 1.1 steals in 33 minutes per game. The Ducks were very excited when their highest scoring player withdrew his name from the 2016 NBA Draft, but if he doesn't take care of this foot issue, they may need to find a new top scorer for the season. There will likely be more updates on Brooks' status when the fall camp begins.
Fantasy AnalysisAfter spending his first two collegiate seasons with Charleston Southern, Bernard spent his junior year with Florida A&M, compiling averages of 14.4 points, 7.1 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 2.3 steals over 32 minutes. Already being listed as a pre-season top-25 team, Xavier lands another gifted player in Bernard, who should be eligible to play right away considering his status as a graduate transfer.
Fantasy AnalysisParas originally signed with UCLA, but due to academic issues preventing him from enrolling, he'll now join Creighton instead. An extremely athletic prospect evidenced by his FIBA Championship U18 slam dunk contest title, Paras is a solid addition for the Bluejays. While he's not guaranteed playing time as a freshman, Paras should have an opportunity to battle for minutes in the backcourt.
Fantasy AnalysisRoby has dealt with pain in his pelvis for some time now, going all the way back to his high school playing days. After finally taking an X-Ray recently, the stress reaction was found, so Roby will now take on a heavy dosage of rest and recovery. With a six-to-eight week timeline for a return, Roby should be back to full strength prior to the start of the regular season, but as in an incoming freshman, he'll have to earn his right to playing time in his first year with the Huskers.
Fantasy AnalysisIsabell has decided to transfer to Drexel University. He will sit out next year but will then have two years of eligibility. The guard was a valuable member of the back court rotation at Missouri and will look to bring his versatility to his new team. He averaged 1.7 rebounds per game and had a free throw percentage of 73.7 during the 2015 season.
Fantasy AnalysisMitrou-Long suffered the injury while playing with a summer league team at the local YMCA on Friday. The injury is being considered a "rolled ankle" and after an X-Ray showed no structural damage, he's expected to be back on the court in 7-to-10 days. Mitrou-Long was granted a medical redshirt this past season after having surgery on his hips, so despite an ankle injury to go along with his past hip injuries, look for him to be at full strength when the season gets underway.
Fantasy AnalysisHeard came to campus a hefty 290 pounds, but has dropped to 260 since working out with the team. The 6-foot-10 freshman is a four-star recruit out of Texas, and he'll be a good replacement for Gavin Ware.
Fantasy AnalysisSmotherman will also miss a closed scrimmage against West Virginia and an exhibition game against Southern Indiana. Court records show he was pulled over for speeding and charged with possession of paraphernelia on June 5. Smotherman redshirted last season, after averaging 3.8 points and 2.8 rebounds per game over his freshman and sophomore seasons, and he will first be eligible to return for the Boilermakers' Nov. 14 home game against defending national champion Villanova.
Fantasy AnalysisJeffers isn't the most skilled offensively, averaging just 5.2 points over 23 minutes per game in 2015-16, but he is a solid rebounder and shot blocker, as he rejected a shot a game last season. Jeffers graduated from Delaware, so he will immediately eligible to play for Boston College in the 2016-17 season.
Fantasy AnalysisBrowne, a reserve guard, averaged 2.2 points, 1.2 rebounds, and 1.1 assists in 12 minutes per game. He has two years of eligibility remaining, but has not yet decided where he will transfer.
Fantasy AnalysisHawkins broken foot currently does not have a timetable for return. Hawkins averaged 10.3 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 1.1 assists in 25 minutes per game during his sophomore year.
Fantasy AnalysisBearden was the team's top scorer in the 2015-16 season, averaging 13.7 points, 4.2 assists, 2.9 rebounds, and 1.6 steals over 30 minutes per game. The junior guard could score and finish inside, but he struggled from behind the arc, connecting on just 25 percent of his attempts from outside. His list of transfer options include: Nevada, Arizona, TCU, Texas A&M, Wisconsin, Marquette, Iowa State, and Miami.
Fantasy AnalysisDuring his junior season, McCormick netted 6.0 PPG and 1.9 RPG. McCormick immediately walks into Georgia Tech as the team's leading scorer heading into next year. His ability to shoot the ball consistently from beyond-the-arc (46 percent) makes him a lethal threat when on the court.
