Kentucky Wildcats DFS Spin

CJ Fredrick (ribs) is unlikely to suit up for Wednesday's matchup with Florida, Tristan Pharis of SB Nation reports. Fredrick, who has missed the last three games with a rib injury, is reportedly not expected to return on Wednesday. If the 6-foot-3 senior, who has averaged 7.3 points and 1.6 assists on 24.3 minutes per game this season, is ultimately unable to suit up, he will have his next opportunity to return against Auburn on Saturday.

Florida Gators DFS Spin

Riley Kugel produced 17 points (5-12 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 6-7 FT), two rebounds and one assist in 29 minutes during Saturday's 84-65 loss to Arkansas. Kugel has suddenly emerged as a go-to scorer for the Gators, averaging 15.5 ppg over his last four contests. Florida's season may be essentially lost after losing four of its last five, but giving the freshman an extended look could prove beneficial for the program's future.
