It’s the day of the Puerto Rico Tip Off and you want to get into daily fantasy.
You want to get college basketball’s newest diaper dandy, LSU’s Ben Simmons, on your squad, but he costs and arm and a leg.
Here are three players that can bring production at a great value.
Josh Gray, G LSU ($5,100 Draft Kings)
First, Josh Gray is a good option right there on the LSU roster. He returned from suspension and played 22 minutes in his first action against Kennesaw State. He is a score-first point guard by nature, but has played better over his LSU tenure (formerly of Odessa Texas Tech college). Last year with underclassmen such as Jordan Mickey, Gray showed an ability to run the floor and contribute in transition. He obviously has the resources surrounding him now. Especially with point guard Keith Hornsby still out with an injury, Gray is a great option.
Peter Jok, G Iowa ($4,500 Draft Kings)
Peter Jok is expected to return tonight after suffering an ankle injury. The 6-6 junior averaged 7 points last season, but is sure to see an expanded roll with Roy Devyn Marble having moved on. He is an active defender and can score you a couple of steals. Jok also hit 2 of 3 three pointers in his first game against Gardner-Webb. Most daily fantasy leagues reward bonus points for 3’s.
Isaiah Zierden, G Creighton ($5,800 Draft Kings)
Although lesser competition, Creighton blew out its first two opponents. The Blue Jays scored 196 points. Versatile guard Isaiah Zierden led Creighton in points, steals and minutes played in its last win against UTSA. Check out these highlights, courtesy of Creighton Athletics, and pay close attention to number 21.
