We have a lighter slate with six games tonight. Most teams have hit their tournament quota for the year, so we will start seeing some less-than-stellar matchups. Tonight is no different. We open with Furman heading to Raleigh to take on the Pack. 7 pm brings us the Tarheels hosting The Citadel.
We have to wait until 8:30 Eastern for the next tipoffs. We have South Carolina Upstate heading to Tallahassee and Texas A&M Corpus Christi heading to Arizona. The highlight of the night is at 9 pm with Memphis heading to Tuscaloosa to take on the Tide. We finish this off out west with Cal-Poly heading up to Seattle to take on the Huskies. Which small school studs will come through? That might decide the slate!
In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy college basketball lineup picks for DraftKings on 12/13/22 starting at noon Eastern. I’ll provide multiple player suggestions for players at guard and forward, aiming to highlight one option at the high, middle, and lower end of the salary scale. Good luck, RotoBallers.
DraftKings CBB DFS Guards
Kendrick Davis, Memphis ($8,700)
Davis is coming off his best game of the season, against Auburn, no less. Davis gets his crack at the other side of the Iron Bowl feud tonight. He was shooting cold from the floor up until the Auburn game, but he hasn’t missed a free throw since Black Friday. That has to count for something, right? Davis is the engine that makes the Tigers go. If they are to sweep the Iron Bowl, he will need another big game. He has a good chance at one since the volume is there and he has plenty of peripheral stats.
RJ Davis, North Carolina ($8,000)
The Heels need a break! They have played Georgia Tech, Indiana, Virginia Tech, Alabama, and Iowa State since Thanksgiving. They challenged themselves more than most teams have. Davis has a low ceiling due to the blowout potential, but the offense runs through him and Bacot. I’ll take the floor for Davis in cash games, but there’s not a lot of GPP upside here.
Matthew Cleveland, Florida State ($6,900)
Cleveland isn’t the most efficient guy, but with Cam’Ron Fletcher out, he has become a reliable scorer for the Seminoles. Cleveland plays big minutes and is a strong rebounder. Even if his shot isn’t always falling, he has a good floor. Cleveland can take as many shots as he wants with Fletcher out. There are plenty to go around, giving him a nice ceiling and making him a double-double threat whenever he takes the court.
Mysta Goodloe, South Carolina Upstate ($5,300)
Goodloe made his debut on Saturday and racked up 20 points in just 24 minutes against South Carolina State. Not only that, he hauled in five boards and chipped in a couple of assists and steals. We would hope his minutes increase a touch against tougher competition, but we saw what Goodloe can do. He won’t hit 34.25 DraftKings points against the Seminoles, but he could hit 20. I’ll take that for the price.
Also consider: Terquavion Smith, North Carolina State ($8,600); Mike Bothwell, Furman ($8,100); Jarkel Joiner, North Carolina State ($7,600); Jordan Gainey, South Carolina Upstate ($6,800); Courtney Ramey, Arizona ($6,400); Cole Bajema, Washington ($6,000); Jayden Hardaway, Memphis ($4,100)

DraftKings CBB DFS Forwards
Azuolas Tubelis, Arizona ($8,800)
Tubelis plays a few more minutes than Ballo, but that doesn’t make much of a difference in games like this. If we go back to the cupcakes before the holiday tournaments, Tubelis was playing more minutes in those games than Ballo was. That’s the only reason I’m leaning towards Tubelis. Both are fantastic cash plays due to great floors if you can afford them.
Armando Bacot, North Carolina ($8,700)
We are finally seeing Bacot get going. He was a double-double machine last year and has strung together three straight and just missed making it six straight by one rebound against Iowa State. The thing with Carolina is that they haven’t really blown anyone out this year. They haven’t won a game by more than 16 points, which means Bacot should see plenty of meaningful minutes. His ceiling is the highest on the slate.
Noah Clowney, Alabama ($6,400)
Clowney has really stepped up for the Tide of late. He has hit 15-of-27 shots over the last two games and hauled in 20 boards. That was against two good teams in South Dakota State and Houston. Memphis is probably in between the two of them. I finally feel like we can trust the freshman after a hit-and-miss November.
Greg Gantt, North Carolina State ($3,000)
There’s not a lot of value at the bottom of the forward heap tonight, but Gantt is playing 10-15 minutes per game normally with Dusan Mahorcic out. Since this game will likely be a blowout, we could see Gantt get a few more minutes than normal. Of course, this is a GPP flier; I can’t in good conscience recommend him in cash.
Also consider: Oumar Ballo, Arizona ($8,900); DeAndre Williams, Memphis ($8,000); Isaac Mushila, Texas A&M-CC ($7,800); Pete Nance, North Carolina ($7,100); Garrett Hien, Furman ($5,000); Cameron Cohen, Florida State ($4,500)
