The most recent fantasy college basketball news from RotoWire.

Doral Moore    C    Wake Forest    
Moore had 15 points, 10 rebounds and three blocks Thursday against North Carolina State.

Fantasy Analysis

It was Moore's second double-double in three games and fifth overall. At 7-foot-1, 280 pounds, Moore has the size that can be difficult to defend, and he's clearly capable of this type of showing nightly. But the Deacons offense is heavily guard dominant, leaving him with inconsistent scoring chances. Moore does have at least eight rebounds in five of six ACC games.
Omer Yurtseven    C    North Carolina State    
Yurtseven had 22 points and eight rebounds Thursday against Wake Forest.

Fantasy Analysis

It was a nice bounce back game from Yurtseven, who was held to six points while committing four fouls at Virginia Sunday. Despite that showing, Yurtseven is averaging 18.3 points over his last four games and appears to have taken another step in his development.
Tadric Jackson    G    Georgia Tech    
Jackson had 14 points, four rebounds and an assist Thursday against Virginia.

Fantasy Analysis

Jackson was the only Yellow Jacket to reach double-digits against the Cavaliers pack line defense. He's now gone for double-digits in three straight, and figures to do so again Saturday in what should be a higher-paced contest at North Carolina.
Ty Jerome    G    Virginia    
Jerome finished with 12 points, six rebounds, five assists and three steals Thursday at Georgia Tech.

Fantasy Analysis

It was a nice, well rounded game for Jerome, who a season high in steals while falling one short in boards. Jerome has enjoyed a nice uptick in assists in ACC play, averaging 5.0 dimes in his last five outings.
DeAndre Hunter    F    Virginia    
Hunter put in 17 points Thursday at Georgia Tech, adding seven rebounds, a block and a steal.

Fantasy Analysis

Hunter hit 7-of-9 from the floor, bouncing back from a two-point outing against North Carolina State last Sunday. Hunter has really blossomed in league play, going for at least 10 points in four of six conference games, but has only two total points in the other two outings, showing the freshman comes with some volatility.
Denzel Mahoney    G    SE Missouri State    
Mahoney scored a career-high 36 points (9-14 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 13-15 FT) with seven rebounds in the win over Southern Illinois-Edwardsville on Thursday.

Fantasy Analysis

Mahoney leads the Ohio Valley Conference with 20.2 points. In his last four games, the 6-4 sophomore has put up 26.8 points on 55.3 percent from the field and 48.3 percent of his 3-pointers. The Redhawks have won two of their last three games, but remain three games out of the OVC lead.
Fletcher Magee    G    Wofford    
Magee knocked down eight 3-pointers on his way to 31 points (10-19 FG, 8-15 3Pt, 3-3 FT) with three rebounds and two assists in the win over Samford on Thursday.

Fantasy Analysis

Magee broke out of a slump in which he only converted 6-of-24 from long range in his two previous games. The Terriers have won five straight games and the 6-4 junior has found ways to score. He is averaging a conference-leading 23.1 points and has connected on 50.6 percent of his 3-pointers.
Justin Coleman    G    Samford    
Coleman tallied 20 points (8-14 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 12 assists, and four rebounds in the loss to Wofford on Thursday.

Fantasy Analysis

The 5-10 junior had his second double-double in the last three games and third on the season. Coleman has converted eight 3-pointers with 26 assists in his last three games. He leads the Southern Conference with 5.9 assists and is adding 12.9 points and 1.4 steals.
Frank Bartley IV    G    Louisiana-Lafayette    
Bartley scored 26 points (7-13 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 9-9 FT) in the comeback win over UT-Arlington on Thursday.

Fantasy Analysis

The Ragin' Cajuns were down by 12 points at halftime, but Bartley rallied Louisiana with 17 points after the break. The BYU transfer has scored 22 points or more three times in his last five games and is averaging 16.6 points. He is converting 37.6 percent of his 3-pointers.
Jock Landale    C    St. Mary's (CAL)    
Landale led the Gaels past Gonzaga with 26 points (12-15 FG, 2-6 FT) and 12 rebounds on Thursday. He added three assists and two blocks.

Fantasy Analysis

Last season, Landale was in constant foul trouble against the Zags and Gonzaga beat St. Mary's three times. The tables have turned in 2017-18 and Landale has 12 double-doubles. The Gaels have won 13 straight games and are now in command of the WCC. Landale looks like the clear conference player of the year with 22.0 points on 66.2 percent of his field goals and 10.4 rebounds.
C.J. Burks    G    Marshall    
Burks scored 25 points (9-16 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT) with six rebounds and four assists in the win over Middle Tennessee State on Thursday.

Fantasy Analysis

Burks has given the Thundering Herd a third viable fantasy option with forward Adjin Penava and point guard Jon Elmore. Burks has scored at least 18 points in eight straight games and is averaging 21.2 points.
Ajdin Penava    F    Marshall    
Penava (ankle) returned to the Thundering Herd lineup and provided 17 points (5-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 7-11 FT), seven rebounds, and six blocks in the win over Middle Tennessee State on Thursday.

Fantasy Analysis

Penava missed two games with the ankle injury, but did not look limited in the nice win over the Blue Raiders. In his last five games, the 6-9 senior has swatted 5.4 shots and is leading the country with 4.8 rejections per game.
Desi Rodriguez    F    Seton Hall    
Rodriguez -- who was benched for the second half of Wednesday's game -- will play during Saturday's game against Xavier, Zach Braziller of the New York Post reports.

Fantasy Analysis

After playing just six minutes in Wednesday's contest, the star player for the Pirates will return to the floor for Saturday's mammoth matchup against Xavier. The forward has improved his numbers each of the four years since he joined the Pirates, averaging 17.5 points, 5.1 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.2 steals per game as a senior. Barring something unforeseen, he should resume his role as the go-to scoring threat for the Pirates on Saturday.
Dion Wiley    G    Maryland    
Wiley (concussion) will be available off the bench against Minnesota on Thursday, Roman Stubbs of the Washington Post reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Wiley's position in the starting lineup has been rather sporadic throughout the season, but he came off the bench in each of the four games before suffering a concussion against Iowa. Now clear of the issue, he should return to his role as a key contributor off the bench for the Terrapins.
Ajdin Penava    F    Marshall    
Penava indicated on his Twitter account that he will return to the lineup Thursday, and he is in the starting lineup against Middle Tennessee State, Erik Bacharach of the Daily News Journal reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Penava participated in practice Tuesday, a good sign that he would return to the floor for Thursday's matchup. That's indeed the case after missing two games because of it, and he should once again be a major factor for the Thundering Herd, averaging 16.7 points, 9.1 boards, 4.8 blocks, 1.8 assists and 1.3 steals per game this season.
