The most recent fantasy college basketball news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisIt 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.
Fantasy AnalysisIt 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.
Fantasy AnalysisJackson 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.
Fantasy AnalysisIt 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.
Fantasy AnalysisHunter 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.
Fantasy AnalysisMahoney 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.
Fantasy AnalysisMagee 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.
Fantasy AnalysisThe 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.
Fantasy AnalysisThe 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.
Fantasy AnalysisLast 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.
Fantasy AnalysisBurks 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.
Fantasy AnalysisPenava 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.
Fantasy AnalysisAfter 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.
Fantasy AnalysisWiley'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.
Fantasy AnalysisPenava 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.
