Virginia Tech Hokies DFS Spin

Rodney Rice (ankle) made his season debut in Wednesday's loss to Syracuse but finished with just two points (1-9 FG, 0-5 3Pt), four rebounds, three steals and an assist across 30 minutes. Rice made his anticipated collegiate debut Wednesday and showed some jitters after managing to only hit one of his nine shot attempts. The 6-4 guard is expected to play a depth role in the backcourt but could see some extended minutes in the short run while Hunter Cattoor continues to be sidelined with a forearm injury.

Virginia Cavaliers DFS Spin

Armaan Franklin notched 20 points (8-13 FG, 4-7 3Pt), seven rebounds and one steal in 33 minutes during Saturday's 67-58 win over Florida State.

Franklin has scored in double digits in six straight outings and is averaging 15.5 points with 5.2 rebounds and 1.7 steals per contest in that span.
