Welcome to the DraftKings CBB DFS core plays column for November 28, 2020.
In this post, we will be breaking down our top options and plays for DraftKings for each major slate of the 2020-2021 CBB DFS season.
I wasn’t great on the first slate of the season as I truly forgot how easy it was for good college teams from power five conferences to blowout teams even good teams from mid-majors. For the foreseeable future, I am going to be focusing on games that have high totals and low spreads. For today that leaves me really on five games. Those games are the LSU/SLU, SCAR/LIB, URI/USF, UNT/ARK, and ND/MSU game. Each of those games has a spread within ten points and a projected total of at least 139.
Jordan Goodwin- $8,200
Goodwin had an excellent season last year averaging 15.5 points, 10.4 rebounds, 3.1 assists, and 2.1 steals. Goodwin produced at least 30 fantasy points in each of his last nine games a year ago and averaged 37.2 fantasy points last season. Goodwin followed up last season with a huge game in the Billikens opener despite playing limited minutes due to a blowout victory. In his 23 minutes, Goodwin went for 12 points, 11 rebounds, four assists, and two steals. Today in a game that Goodwin should see his full allotment of minutes I am expecting another big performance from the senior.
Jalen Carey- $4,700
I will readily admit that I have struggled to start the season to identify elite value plays. This is something that I will likely struggle with for the first couple of weeks of the season until we get more data. With that being said I really like Carey as a value guard today. Carey has started each of the Rams’ first two games of the season and has played 24 and 28 minutes in each of those games. Just like in the NBA minutes are king as you can’t produce if you are not on the court. Carey not only has played good minutes to start the season but he has not been half bad from a fantasy perspective. Carey has produced double-digit fantasy points in each of those games and has scored eight points in both games as well.
Joey Hauser- $7,300
Coach Izzo was talking up Hause heading into the season and the transfer from Marquette did not disappoint in his first game for the Spartans. In that blowout victory over Eastern Michigan, Hauser had 15 points and nine rebounds in just 23 minutes of action. A double-double is something I expect we see Hauser threaten each and every time he takes the court. I especially think that is the case tonight against Notre Dame. Notre Dame lost their leading rebounder from a year ago and looking at their current roster I just don’t see someone that can content with Hauser.
Jaylin Williams- $5,000
It is hard to know what you have with the Razorbacks after their first game as they blitzed Mississippi Valley State and won by 80 points. That lead to smaller minutes for most of their starters and more minutes for their bench players. While we cannot expect The Razorbacks to win by 80 again or to score 142 points again I do like them to score a ton of points and win big again which should mean plenty of minutes for their bench again. That puts the freshman Williams on my radar as I liked what he did in his 20 minutes against Mississippi Valley State. In those 20 minutes, Williams went for nine points and ten rebounds on his way to 23 fantasy points.
