Ohio State Buckeyes DFS Spin
Roddy Gayle had five points (2-6 FG, 1-3 3Pt), two rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal across 26 minutes during Sunday's 62-41 loss to Michigan State. Gayle put forward one of his better point outputs (nine) during his previous game started. Fantasy managers who expected something similar were left disappointed, as the guard recorded a log they should expect from him when he serves as a backup option, excluding the extra minutes.
Purdue Boilermakers DFS Spin
Zach Edey logged 24 points (7-10 FG, 10-13 FT), eight rebounds, two assists and three blocks over 35 minutes during Sunday's 64-58 loss to Northwestern. Edey's six turnovers are another storyline to track as he still did well offensively but has made 13 turnovers in the last three games. If he gets as little scoring support from his teammates in big games just like Sunday, Edey's own production shouldn't slow down much unless he faces a serious matchup.
