This article is part of our DFS College Basketball series.
Tuesday finally provides college basketball DFS players with decent slate to play that doesn't involves scouring the depth of vastly unknown mid-majors. To make things even better, the main slate is identical on both FanDuel and DraftKings, so that's what we'll focus on here.

There's still nothing new on Chris Clarke ($6,000 DK, $3,000 FD), who remains at minimum price (at least on FanDuel) while serving an indefinite suspension. He'll be an automatic insert when cleared (if he stays at that price), but until then, we have some decisions to make. Kerry Blackshear ($5,900 DK, $5,700 FD) should be a great value play in his place, and the price hasn't caught up yet because he's reached 25 minutes just once due to frequent foul trouble. Both guards are fine plays, but I'm partial to Justin Robinson ($7,000 DK, $7,800 FD) on DraftKings due to the price break. Using him or Nickeil Alexander-Walker ($8,700 DK, $8,500 FD) will come at the cost of players in the top tier, however.
In a similar light as Clarke, we have Mike Watkins ($6,700 DK, $6,000 FD), who has been sitting all year due to personal reasons but will be available Tuesday. It's a little risky to toss him in out of the gates, but remember this is a player responsible for 12.1 PPG and 8.9 RPG a season ago. Watch for starting lineup information, because if his minutes are meaningful, he'll take away
