Purdue Boilermakers DFS Spin

Zach Edey provided 19 points (6-10 FG, 7-9 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists and two blocks over 28 minutes during Monday's 65-64 loss to Rutgers. Edey couldn't prevent the Boilermakers from suffering their first loss of the season despite a solid scoring night for the big man. He's now recorded a double-double in all but two games this season but hasn't scored over 20 in three of his last four starts, which is the only blemish on a highlight year already.

Ohio State Buckeyes DFS Spin

Zed Key closed Sunday's 73-57 victory over Northwestern with 11 points (4-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 11 rebounds, two blocks and two steals across 28 minutes. Key secured his first double-double in five games and it hasn't always come easily without taking many field goals on a regular basis. It will be interesting to see how Key performs in conference play going forward, as he's stepped up to the task in previous high-profile matchups already.
