Baylor Bears DFS Snapshot
James Akinjo (back) was seen “moving well and looking good” in practice on Thursday, John Werner of the Waco Tribune-Herald reports. Although not fully out of the woods yet, it would appear that Akinjo has a decent chance to play in Saturday’s contest against Alabama.
Alabama Crimson Tide DFS Snapshot
James Rojas will join the starting lineup for Tuesday’s game against Georgia. Rojas has played off the bench each of the last three games but posted his best game to date Saturday, racking up six points and six boards over just 12 minutes. It’s unclear how many minutes the senior big man can handle Tuesday, but his inclusion in the starting lineup could suggest he’s in line for a slightly larger workload.
