Kansas Jayhawks DFS Spin

Abayomi Iyiola logged 14 points (6-7 FG, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds and one block in 22 minutes before fouling out of Saturday's 82-76 OT win over West Virginia. Iyiola was inserted into the Wildcats' starting lineup with David N'Guessan sitting out with an undisclosed injury. As a result, the senior backup was able to put up season highs in points and field-goal attempts, marking just his second double-digit scoring performance of the season. With N'Guessan's injury status now up in the air, N'Guessan could in line to start moving forward. Kansas State's next come will come versus Texas on Tuesday.

Texas Longhorns DFS Spin

Dylan Disu chipped in 10 points (4-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds and three blocks in 16 minutes during Saturday's 70-69 victory over Oklahoma. It was an efficient stat line for Disu, who needed very little time on the court to record a solid fantasy day. While his per-minute numbers have always been solid, his ultimate fantasy ceiling will ultimately be capped by the timeshare with Christian Bishop, who saw 22 minutes off the bench in Saturday's contest. At the very least, it looks like the knee injury that forced a one-game absence is now a thing of the past for Disu.
