The most recent fantasy college basketball news from RotoWire.

Marcus Barham    G    Florida A&M    
Barham scored a career-high 30 points (12-19 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 1-1 FT) with seven assists in the loss to North Florida on Monday.

Fantasy Analysis

Barham has nailed 12 3-pointers in his last two games and is converting 41.4 percent of his 3-pointers. His best efforts - 16.9 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.2 assists - have not helped the Rattlers too much as the team fell to 1-11. Florida A&M heads out to the road for another four games after playing just their second home game. Barham could be the best player on the worst team in the MEAC.
Tulio Da Silva    F    South Florida    
Da Silva grabbed a career-high 17 rebounds to go with six points (3-11 FG, 0-1 FT) and two assists in the loss to Florida International on Monday.

Fantasy Analysis

There were plenty of errant shots for Da Silva to capture as the teams combined to shoot 37.0 percent from the field. The 6-7 sophomore had his first double-digit rebounding game of the season. He has only scored 13 combined points on 18.2 percent from the field in his last four games.
Devin Gage    G    DePaul    
Gage will miss the rest of the season after rupturing his Achilles' tendon on Dec. 6, the Gwinnett Prep Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

The 6-2 sophomore was starting for the Blue Demons and scored in double digits and provided at least five assists in three of his first eight games. Brandon Cyrus started in Gage's stead on Monday, and Justin Roberts and Austin Grandstaff received more minutes off the DePaul bench.
Austin Grandstaff    G    DePaul    
Grandstaff returned from a three-game absence and scored 10 points (4-10 FG, 3-7 3Pt) with five assists in the win over Alabama A&M on Monday.

Fantasy Analysis

Grandstaff received his most extensive playing time and may get more burn going forward with Devin Gage (Achilles) out for the season. The 6-4 sophomore started his career at Ohio State and could be an important backcourt piece for the Blue Demons.
Marin Maric    C    DePaul    
Maric did not play in the win over Alabama A&M after injuring his knee in the win over UIC, Gwinnett Prep Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Maric is a game-time decision for Saturday's contest against Northwestern. Jaylen Butz moved into the starting lineup and snagged eight boards in the win. Maric is providing 11.6 points and 5.2 rebounds through nine games.
Bakary Konate    C    Minnesota    
Konate (concussion) didn't ultimately take the court Monday against Drake.

Fantasy Analysis

Konate was spotted on the court during pregame warmups, but apparently that was just another step in the rehabilitation process. His next opportunity to return will be Dec. 21 against Oral Roberts.
David Collins    G    South Florida    
Collins is going to be fitted for a brace and then see how his knee feels over the next couple of days, Brian Gregory of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Collins has missed the last three games with a knee strain, but will be fitted for a brace with the hope of returning over the next few games. His next opportunity will come on Thursday against Bethune-Cookman, though he can tentatively be considered questionable for that contest.
Leron Black    F    Illinois    
Black is dealing with a hyperextended left elbow and is questionable for Wednesday's game against Longwood, Scott Richey of The News-Gazette reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Black reportedly suffered the injury during the second half of Sunday's matchup with UNLV, having to leave the game after just 12 minutes of action. He was unable to take part in practice Monday and the team is still waiting for official word regarding tests that were performed on it. For now, Black is highly questionable for Wednesday's game against Longwood and if he does sit out, coach Brad Underwood mentioned that they'd experiment more with a smaller lineup featuring Aaron Jordan at power forward.
Maishe Dailey    G    Iowa    
Dailey provided nine points (3-9 FG, 3-6 3Pt), four rebounds and two assists in Sunday's 91-60 win over Southern University.

Fantasy Analysis

Dailey finished without a single bucket from within the arc Sunday, but still managed to shoot 50 percent from downtown on six attempts. The sophomore guard has seen significant playing time off the bench lately, matching a career-best 21 minutes on the floor for the second time in his last three games.
Tremont Waters    G    Louisiana State    
Waters just missed a triple-double with 20 points (6-13 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 7-8 FT), 10 assists, and nine rebounds in the win over UNC-Wilmington on Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis

Waters has been one of the best freshman in the country so far as he is averaging 18.3 points, 6.6 assists, 3.6 rebounds, and 2.1 steals per contest. He has had some huge games already including a 39 point outing and this narrow miss of a potential triple-double. LSU will take on Houston on Wednesday where Waters will look to continue to put up big numbers.
JaQuel Richmond    G    UNC-Wilmington    
Richmond totaled 16 points (7-11 FG, 2-4 3Pt), two rebounds and one assist in Sunday's 97-84 loss to LSU.

Fantasy Analysis

Richmond matched career highs in scoring (16 points) and field-goal attempts (11) on just 21 minutes off the bench Sunday. The senior guard also drained a career-best seven shots to help carry him past his previous season-high scoring total by nine points. Despite Richmond continuing to average north of 20 minutes per game, it seems unlikely that his level of production from Sunday will become a pattern.
Noah Dickerson    F    Washington    
Dickerson had a team-high 18 points (7-10 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 2-6 FT), four rebounds, and a steal in a bad loss to Gonzaga on Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis

It's quite possible the high of knocking off Kansas last week played a factor in the Huskies terrible defensive performance on Sunday. Nevertheless, Dickerson still had a nice offensive performance. He is averaging 16.2 points and 8.2 rebounds while shooting an impressive 63 percent from the field. Expect Dickerson to have a nice game against Loyola Marymount on Sunday.
Vince Edwards    F    Purdue    
Edwards produced a double-double with 12 points (3-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 6-6 FT), 12 rebounds, three assists, two steals, and a block in the win over IUPUI on Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis

The senior now has five double-doubles on the season. He only had three such stat lines all of last year. Edwards is fourth on the Boilermakers in PPG (13.5) and leads the team in RPG (9.2). Purdue has bounced back from two straight losses at the end of November to their current six game win streak. They will take on Butler on Saturday next.
Jordan Andrews    G    South Alabama    
Andrews provided 15 points (4-9 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), two rebounds and one steal in Sunday's 76-75 loss to SIU-Edwardsville.

Fantasy Analysis

Despite Sunday's 15-point resurgence, Andrews has seen a steep decline in production over his last five appearances. The junior transfer kicked off his Jaguar career to the tune of 14.8 points and 27.8 minutes per game through the first five games of the season. But in the last five games since, Andrews has finished with two scoreless performances and averaged just 4.8 points and 17.2 minutes per game.
Bakary Konate    C    Minnesota    
Konate (concussion) is warming up ahead of Monday's matchup with Drake, though he's still a game-time decision, Marcus Fuller of the Star Tribune reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Konate has been going through the concussion protocol and while his availability for warmups is encouraging that he'll play, there's a chance he may not be needed considering the lack of size that Drake rosters. Even if he's ultimately cleared, Konate has averaged just 8.1 minutes per game, so he lacks fantasy value and would simply be one less depth option for the Gophers in the frontcourt.
