CBB DFS: DraftKings Daily Fantasy College Basketball Picks - Today's Top Lineups (2/18/24)

Zach Edey - CBB DFS Picks, NCAA Daily College Fantasy Basketball

We have a nice, all-inclusive Sunday slate on DraftKings today. DraftKings didn't leave any games off, not even the nooner in Tampa between Florida Atlantic and South Florida. This is the way it should be! We even have Sunday staple Purdue on here, which brings up the age-old DFS question: To Edey or not to Edey?

Speaking of Purdue, they're in Columbus to start the afternoon. Next up is Northwestern in Bloomington to take on the Hoosiers. Next is Memphis in Dallas to take on SMU. Seton Hall heads to Queens to take on St. John's. Rutgers heads to The Barn to take on the Gophers. We end this in L.A. with Utah taking on the Bruins. None of the games start at the same time, so this is going to be a lot of fun...and a lot of strategy.

This article will provide you with my daily fantasy college basketball lineup picks for DraftKings on 2/18/24, starting at noon EST. I’ll provide multiple player suggestions at guard and forward, aiming to highlight one option at the salary scale's high, middle, and lower levels. Good luck, RotoBallers.

Today's DraftKings Guards - CBB DFS Lineup Picks

Kadary Richmond, Seton Hall ($8.9K)

Richmond isn't as consistent as Boo Buie, but he has cleared 50 DraftKings points twice in the last five games and three times in the last seven. You usually don't find a ceiling like that under $9K. Buie is still the safer play in cash contests. That said, Richmond did put up 38.25 DraftKings points in the first meeting with St. John's. Both are good picks, but in GPP, I'm chasing the ceiling.

Jeremiah Williams, Rutgers ($7.2K)

Rutgers hasn't lost since Williams made his Rutgers debut on February 3. All four of those games were games that Rutgers was projected to lose (Michigan, Maryland, Wisconsin, and Northwestern). Williams played a season-high 34 minutes in the win over Northwestern and put up his second straight game with 36.25 DraftKings points. It took him a couple of games to find his bearings, but that's what we can expect from Williams now. If he can do that against Wisconsin and Northwestern, I'll be surprised if he doesn't against Minnesota.

Brandon Weatherspoon, Florida Atlantic ($5.5K)

Weatherspoon has mostly been an afterthought for the Owls, only scoring in double figures five times in the first 22 games. However, he has tallied double figures in three straight games to go with nine rebounds, six steals, two blocks, and an assist. This is a loaded team, but that also means the Owls will go with the hot hand. Right now, that's Weatherspoon.

Justin Mullins, Northwestern ($4K)

Mullins logged 26 minutes against Rutgers this week with Ty Berry sidelined. Berry is out for the rest of the season, but Northwestern may be onto something with Mullins. He put up eight points, two rebounds, four blocks, a steal, and an assist in those 26 minutes. The blocks seem unsustainable, but the rest of it is attainable, which makes Mullins a solid value for the price.

Also consider: Boo Buie, Northwestern ($8.7K); Braden Smith, Purdue ($8.5K); Brooks Barnhizer, Northwestern ($7.9K); Alijah Martin, Florida Atlantic ($7.1K); Bruce Thornton, Ohio State ($6.9K); Gabe Madsen, Utah ($6.3K); Evan Mahaffey, Ohio State ($5.3K); Jamichael Davis, Rutgers ($4.9K); Jalen Smith, SMU ($4.8K)

Today's DraftKings Forwards - CBB DFS Lineup Picks

Zach Edey, Purdue ($11K)

There's more than enough value out there today to use Edey. The real skill lies in trying to use both Richmond and Edey in GPPs to maximize the ceiling. Edey has at least 40 DraftKings points in five straight games and eight of the last nine. Expect another monster rebound total for Edey (he hasn't been under 10 since the loss to Nebraska on January 9) and his own personal free-throw shooting contest again today.

Dawson Garcia, Minnesota ($7.8K)

Garcia has scored 20 points in three of the last five games and in five of the last eight. His efficient shooting is a big part of that. Garcia produces across the board for the Gophers. If he's going to score 20+ per game, the ceiling becomes a lot higher. Garcia isn't a substitute for higher-priced players tonight, but he is a good companion to Edey in cash games.

Mason Gillis, Purdue ($5.4K)

You would think that playing alongside Edey and the talented Purdue guards wouldn't leave much left over for anyone else. It turns out that even a top-three team has a place for a sharpshooter in their ranks. Gillis shoots an outrageous 49% from three-point range this season on three attempts per game. He has been even better than that lately. He's solid enough on the boards to make it worth our while even if he's not shooting the lights out. Gillis has topped 20 DraftKings points in three of the last four games.

Ja'Heim Hudson, SMU ($4.4K)

Over the last three games, Hudson has 28 points, 12 rebounds, five assists, and four steals over the last three games for the Mustangs. Hudson has played in every game this season, but he hasn't always been effective. This recent run of success has come at the expense of Keon Ambrose-Hylton. This trend will likely continue until Hudson cools off. He's the SMU value play we want today.

Also consider: David Jones, Memphis ($9.5K); Kasean Pryor, South Florida ($7.2K); Samuell Williamson, SMU ($6.8K); Adem Bona, UCLA ($6.6K); Nick Jourdain, Memphis ($5.2K); Trey Kaufman-Renn, Purdue ($4.8K); Parker Fox, Minnesota ($4.5K); Tre Carroll, Florida Atlantic ($3.7K)
