Latest Fantasy College Basketball News

The most recent fantasy college basketball news from RotoWire.

Aaron Falzon    F    Northwestern    
Falzon (hip) rejoined the action for Saturday's game against La Salle, racking up 11 points and a rebound in the contest.

Fantasy Analysis

Falzon saw 18 minutes off the bench for the Wildcats after sitting out the first three games of the season because of the issue and played pretty well. He should be a regular part of the rotation in the frontcourt moving forward.
Tyler Wideman    F    Butler    
Wideman scored a season-high 19 points (7-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-5 FT) with seven rebounds in the win over Furman on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

The 6-8 senior had not attempted more than seven shots in the first three Bulldog games, but saw more opportunities against the Paladins. He is not a primary offensive option, but has averaged 12.3 points with 4.5 rebounds as a starter in the Butler frontcourt.
Kamar Baldwin    G    Butler    
Baldwin scored 18 points (7-11 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT) with four rebounds, three assists, and three steals in the win over Furman on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

Baldwin has scored at least 15 points in his last three games and has alternated good and poor shooting performances. He has not taken over at point guard for the most part with just 2.8 assists. The sophomore has helped the Bulldog defense with nine steals in four games. He is capable of putting up points in bunches, so some patience may be required.
Jessie Govan    C    Georgetown    
Govan provided 23 points (10-15 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-7 FT) and 14 rebounds in the win over Maryland-Eastern Shore on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

Things seem to have clicked into place for the 6-10 junior this November with three straight games of at least 20 points and 14 rebounds. The Hoyas and Govan may face a bit more resistance next Saturday against Richmond, but the non-conference schedule is generally light. Look for the fine numbers from Govan to continue.
Kaleb Johnson    G    Georgetown    
Johnson scored 24 points (9-13 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT) with six rebounds and four assists in the win over Maryland-Eastern Shore on Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis

Johnson has been on a nice ascent in the first 10 days of the season. He opened the season with a 2-point perforrmance, but has hit 13 of his last 21 (61.9 percent) of his field goals and added 13 boards with eight assists in his last two games. The Hoyas are beating up on the teams they are supposed to, which is an improvement from past seasons.
Mohamed Bamba    C    Texas    
Bamba (concussion), as expected, will suit up and start for Saturday's game against Lipscomb, Dustin McComas of Orangebloods.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Bamba has recovered from the concussion he suffered during Sunday's practice, which caused him to miss Tuesday's game against New Hampshire. He was impressive in his debut (15 points, eight rebounds and four blocks against Northwestern) and will look to continue the great start to his collegiate career Saturday.
Marcquise Reed    G    Clemson    
Reed contributed 16 points (6-15 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 11 rebounds, six assists, and three steals in the win over Hofstra on Friday.

Fantasy Analysis

This was Reed's first double-double of his collegiate career. He is off to a solid start to his junior season as he is averaging 12.8 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 3.3 assists per game. Reed will look for a repeat performance against Temple in the Gildan Charleston Classic championship game on Sunday night.
Donte Grantham    F    Clemson    
Grantham notched a game-high 22 points (9-12 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and added four rebounds, three assists, and one block in the win over Hofstra on Friday.

Fantasy Analysis

Grantham also tied a career high with his 22 points. The senior is off to a great start to the season as he is averaging 18.3 points and 5.8 rebounds per game. He is also an outstanding 27-of-36 from the field during the first four games. Grantham will look to lead his team to a victory in the championship game of the Gildan Charleston Classic on Sunday night against Temple.
Xavian Stapleton    G    Mississippi State    
Stapleton is expected to sit out Saturday's game against Florida A&M, as he was not participating in warmups and was seen in sweats on the sideline, Brett Hudson of the Commercial Dispatch reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Stapleton played just five minutes during the team's opener before suffering a sprained knee. Assuming he's sidelined Saturday, Aric Holman and KeyShawn Feazell will likely see the bulk of the power forward minutes.
Bryant Crawford    G    Wake Forest    
Crawford just missed a double-double as he had 10 points (1-8 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 7-7 FT), nine assists, four rebounds, and a block in a loss to Drake on Friday.

Fantasy Analysis

It was a tough shooting night for the junior guard as his team fell to 0-3 on the season. Crawford has started the season off with another good stat line of 16.7 PPG, 4.7 APG, and 2.3 SPG. Those numbers line up pretty close to his sophomore campaign when he averaged 16.2 PPG and 5.5 APG. Wake Forest is a young team, so it might take awhile for them to figure out how to play together.
Kyle Guy    G    Virginia    
Guy put up a career-high 29 points (11-20 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four steals, and an assist in a 76-67 win over VCU on Friday.

Fantasy Analysis

The sophomore is in line for an expanded role this season for the Cavaliers. Guy averaged 7.5 PPG in 18.6 MPG a year ago, and through three games this season is averaging 19.7 points and 3.0 steals per game. He has also has hit 53 percent of his shots from deep this year, after shooting an incredible 49.5 percent from three-point range his freshman season. Guy will look to stay hot against Monmouth on Sunday.
Raymond Spalding    F    Louisville    
Spalding posted a double-double with 19 points (9-18 FG, 1-1 3Pt), 11 rebounds, three blocks, two assists, and two steals in the win over Omaha on Friday.

Fantasy Analysis

Spalding bounced back in a big way after a two point performance in the season opener. The junior really controlled the paint on both sides. His 18 field goal attempts are also encouraging for his fantasy value, as he appears in line for a much larger offensive role after averaging just 5.9 points in 19.2 minutes per game. The Cardinals will take on Southern Illinois on Tuesday.
Deng Adel    F    Louisville    
Adel had a game-high 21 points (7-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 7-8 FT), eight rebounds, four assists, one block, and a steal in the win over Omaha on Friday.

Fantasy Analysis

This game comes on the heels of a 20 point effort in the season opener, meaning Adel has already matched his total from last season with two games of at least 20 points. It will likely be the junior's job to put the Cardinals on his back and take them as far as he can. Louisville will take on Southern Illinois on Tuesday.
Marvin Bagley    F    Duke    
Bagley (eye) had a double-double with 19 points (7-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-9 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists, and two blocks in a 78-61 win over Southern on Friday.

Fantasy Analysis

After being taken out of the game on Tuesday because of an eye injury, Bagley showed no ill effects by posting his third double-double of the season. He is now averaging 18.0 points and 9.3 rebounds per game through his first four games of his collegiate career. Bagley will look to have another big game against Furman on Monday.
Wendell Carter    F    Duke    
Carter was dominate in the win over Southern on Friday with 20 points (7-9 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 5-7 FT), 11 rebounds, six blocks, two assists, and a steal.

Fantasy Analysis

The talented freshman has had a very nice start to his collegiate career as he is averaging 13.0 points, 9.0 rebounds, and 3.3 blocks through his first four games. Duke is absolutely loaded with talent and is one of the biggest teams Coach K has ever had. Carter will dominate the paint once against when the Blue Devils take on Furman on Monday.
