Ohio State Buckeyes DFS Spin
Zed Key totaled 10 points (5-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 0-1 FT), eight rebounds and one steal in 30 minutes during Thursday's 70-67 loss to Minnesota. Key missed Sunday's loss to Maryland due to a shoulder injury and wasn't in the starting lineup Thursday, but he still saw his fair share of playing time and was efficient from the floor. It wouldn't be surprising to see the junior reclaim his starting role going forward, and he didn't appear to have any major restrictions with his playing time during Thursday's loss.
Rutgers Scarlet Knights DFS Spin
Paul Mulcahy posted 16 points (7-13 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT), eight rebounds, six assists and four steals in 37 minutes during Monday's 65-64 win over Purdue. Mulcahy helped take down one of the best teams in the country by leading the Scarlet Knights in scoring on the night. He's now scored at least 10 in three of the last four games and is certainly worth tracking thanks to averages of 5.4 rebounds and 5.8 assists per game in his last five starts.
