DFS College Basketball: Tuesday Preview
DFS College Basketball: Tuesday Preview

This article is part of our DFS College Basketball series.

Top Players:

Zion Williamson ($9,100 FD, $10,700 DK)/RJ Barrett ($8,900 FD, $9,700 DK): I know better than to say "fade Zion Williamson" because fantasy owners always want some exposure in the event he posts one of his ridiculous lines. But I think RJ Barrett is the better play here, and gives you a little more salary flexibility (it's nearly impossible to use both). Tre Jones (shoulder) is not expected to return Tuesday, and in the absence of their point guard, Barrett has had to assume more ball handling duties. Sure, Alex O'Connell and Cam Reddish handle the ball a little bit more too, but Barrett towers over them with his 31.3 percent usage rate over his last 10 games. Barring a complete and total blowout, Barrett is the safest bet on the slate for 40 fantasy points.

Jordan Murphy ($8,600 FD, $9,500 DK): Murphy followed up a dreadful performance of less than 15 fantasy points against Illinois by absolutely going off for 19 points & 21 boards against Penn State on Saturday. The Nittany Lions are woefully dreadful against big men, but Michigan will prove to be a much tougher test. Ethan Happ and the Badgers dealt the Wolverines their first loss of the year Saturday, and Happ posted an excellent 26/10/7 line, but don't count on that from Murphy. The ceiling is there, but he seems less likely to reach it against KenPom's No. 3-ranked defensive team, which also happens to play at a pace outside the top-300.
