Ky Bowman, G, Boston College ($9,900 DK, $8,600 FD): Bowman checks in as the most expensive guard option on DK, but a borderline bargain as the third option on FD. This game against DePaul looks like a duel among star guards (more below), as it's got a narrow spread, high total (150) and both sides lack complimentary pieces. For his part, Bowman has just two games with less than 29.4 fantasy points, he's played at least 37 minutes in five straight and has at least seven boards in four of his last five to complement his scoring prowess.
Max Strus, G, DePaul ($9,700/$8,500): As a slight favorite, Strus may be more appealing than Bowman given the higher implied scoring. A quick glance at his game log shows the immense upside, with Strus putting up at least 18 points in six of his last nine while grabbing at least eight boards at the same ratio. Eli Cain ($7,800 on both sites) represents the only real support Strus receives, and there's a lot of appeal to pairing Strus and Bowman as high-scoring options, especially on FanDuel where they're a little more cost-friendly.
Nicolas Claxton, F, Georgia ($9,200/$8,400): Tennessee's Grant Williams $10,700/$9,000) is the obvious choice in the frontcourt, and he's proven matchup proof.

He's gone for at least 15
