DFS College Basketball: Sunday Preview

DFS College Basketball: Sunday Preview

This article is part of our DFS College Basketball series.

After a busy day of games Saturday, DraftKings is offering a four-game slate with a $1,000 top prize in the $5 Five Up contest and a noon EST tip off. FanDuel is offering single-game contests only for the match-up between Rutgers and Indiana. 

Targets

Timmy Allen, F, Utah ($8,500 DK)

Allen steps into a great match-up against a 2-11 Washington team that pushes the tempo and has allowed 80+ points in each of their last seven games. They've also allowed a 20-point scorer in four of their last five games. Besides leading the team in scoring, Allen contributes well in other categories – leading the team in rebounds and ranking second in assists. He's scored at least 39 fantasy points in three of his last five games, and won't find a much better opportunity to match that again tonight.

Erik Stevenson, G, Washington ($6,100 DK)

Stevenson had a slow start to his Huskies career after transferring from Wichita St. but has now recorded all four of his double-digit point outputs in the team's last four games. He's averaging four made threes at over 50 percent shooting from deep in over 30 minutes per game during that stretch, which included a 40-point fantasy night against California. His price-tag hasn't adjusted much for his recent play as he's still priced at a slightly below-average salary. 

Trey Wertz, G, Notre Dame ($4,400 DK)

Wertz may have the most upside of anyone that's priced under $5k today, as the Santa Clara transfer posted 27 points against Purdue in his first start in a Notre Dame uniform and second game of the season. Since then, an ankle injury slowed him down before he finally re-entered the starting lineup in the team's last outing when he tied a season-high in minutes. Wertz is an excellent three-point shooter and gets a good match-up against Miami, who is allowing opponents to shoot 36 percent from long-range. 

Fades

Myles Johnson, F, Rutgers ($7,000 DK)

Johnson has only averaged 24 minutes since Cliff Omoruyi returned to action after being sidelined with a knee injury. He was able to break out of a four-game stretch in which he failed to reach double figures against Penn State, but they play a small lineup and have struggled to defend post players all season. Considering Johnson has risen up to a second-tier salary, I'd prefer to fade him for someone who is more heavily involved in the offense and not so reliant on rebounds for his fantasy output.

Lester Quinones, G, Memphis ($6,300 DK)

Memphis faces off against a defensive-minded and slow paced East Carolina squad that has only allowed 70+ points twice this season, leading us to the lowest over/under on today's slate. Quinones has failed to record more than five boards or assists in his last three games and has outperformed this salary in only one of the team's five conference games. Landers Nolley ($5,600 DK) has been the main offensive contributor and is the preferred play on Memphis at a lesser cost. 

Nysier Brooks, F, Miami Fl. ($5,700 DK)

Brooks is another player that is reliant on rebounds for a good portion of his fantasy points, but he will have less opportunities than usual against a Notre Dame team that limits the amount of possessions and doesn't miss many shots. Notre Dame's weakness on the defensive end has been on the perimeter, where they're allowing team's to shoot 38 percent. Isaiah Wong ($7,600 DK) leads Miami in threes made this season and should be the biggest beneficiary.
