Houston Cougars DFS Spin

Terrance Arceneaux (ankle) is doubtful Thursday at SMU. Houston's head coach Kelvin Sampson said he does not think Arceneaux will play on Thursday. But fortunately for the injured freshman, he is expected to "be back sooner than later" from his injured ankle. Sampson did not fully rule out Arceneaux for Thursday, so him not logging any absences is still a possibility.

SMU Mustangs DFS Spin

Samuell Williamson supplied 19 points (9-16 FG, 1-2 FT), 10 rebounds, five assists, one block and one steal across 46 minutes during Sunday's 91-89 2OT loss to Wichita State. Williamson has his third double-double of 2023. Though the senior needed regulation and two overtime periods to record another double-double, they do not take away from both his accomplishment and overall upside as a fantasy option.
