The most recent fantasy college basketball news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisBarham 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.
Fantasy AnalysisThere 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.
Fantasy AnalysisThe 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.
Fantasy AnalysisGrandstaff 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.
Fantasy AnalysisMaric 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.
Fantasy AnalysisKonate 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.
Fantasy AnalysisCollins 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.
Fantasy AnalysisBlack 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.
Fantasy AnalysisDailey 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.
Fantasy AnalysisWaters 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.
Fantasy AnalysisRichmond 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.
Fantasy AnalysisIt'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.
Fantasy AnalysisThe 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.
Fantasy AnalysisDespite 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.
Fantasy AnalysisKonate 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.
