Oklahoma State Cowboys DFS Spin
Bryce Thompson notched 21 points (9-16 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 0-2 FT), three rebounds, one assist and four steals across 32 minutes during Wednesday's 71-68 victory over Texas Tech. Thompson got it done on both ends of the court, as he logged a season high in steals while also posting his second-most points of any game in the 2022-23 campaign. The 6-foot-6 junior has averaged 10.9 field-goal attempts per game this season, though he's now logged 14, 6 and 16 shots over the past three games while making up for the absence of point guard Avery Anderson (wrist). With Asberry now out indefinitely after undergoing surgery Wednesday, Thompson ranks second among the Cowboys' healthy starters in points per game (11.2). Therefore, it's likely Thompson could see an increased role behind Oklahoma State's leading scorer Kalib Boone (12.0) moving forward.
Iowa State Cyclones DFS Spin
Caleb Grill supplied 13 points (4-10 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and 10 rebounds over 36 minutes during Wednesday's 76-71 loss to West Virginia. Grill didn't log his best shooting performance of the season, though he racked up double-digit boards for just the second time this season. As a result, the 6-foot-3 shooting guard notched his first double-double of the 2022-23 campaign. Grill has still also averaged 15.3 points while converting 46.9 percent of his 10.7 field-goal attempts per game over the last three outings. 8.7 of these shots have come from beyond the three-point line, making Grill a high-upside yet high-variance fantasy option.
