Northwestern Wildcats DFS Spin
Julian Roper (ankle) returned from a three-game absence Thursday and finished with four points (2-2 FG) and four rebounds across 22 minutes in a loss to Michigan. Roper injured his ankle against Wisconsin on Jan. 23 and was forced to miss three straight games as a result. He's held down a nice role as the team's primary sixth-man this season, averaging 4.4 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 21.3 minutes per contest.
Wisconsin Badgers DFS Spin
Joradn Davis returned to the bench when Wisconsin hosted Illinois last Saturday. Davis had been benched in favor of Connor Essegian following Wisconsin's game against Indiana, but was soon thrust back into a starting role when Max Klesmit went down with a head injury. With Klesmit now healthy and starting, Davis returned to the bench. Davis had played well since being supplanted in the starting five, and will look to continue to provide a spark off the bench for the Badgers.
