Texas Longhorns DFS Snapshot
Christian Bishop accumulated 11 points (4-7 FG, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds and one steal over 17 minutes during Tuesday’s 77-64 loss to Texas Tech. After starting the season primarily coming off the bench, Bishop has now started nine of the last 11 games. During that stretch he is averaging 5.1 points and 5.5 rebounds in 19.3 minutes per contest. Texas has a lot of bodies in the frontcourt this season, which does limit some of Bishop’s upside. Iowa State will be next up on Saturday.
