Michigan Wolverines DFS Spin

Terrance Williams (knee) was a full participant in practice Tuesday but remains uncertain to play Thursday versus Rutgers, Tony Garcia of the Detroit Free Press reports. The 6-foot-7 junior forward has missed Michigan's last two games with a bruised knee, but his ability to put in a full practice bodes well for his chances of suiting up Thursday. A formal update on Williams' status may not arrive until shortly before Thursday's 8:30 p.m. ET tipoff, so those planning on deploying him in fantasy lineups will want to keep close tabs on the situation leading up to the start of the game.

Rutgers Scarlet Knights DFS Spin

Caleb McConnell (back) is not expected to be available for Thursday's matchup with Michigan, Brian Fonseca of The Star-Ledger reports. McConnell has been unable to practice with the team, and he remains doubtful to suit up on Thursday. The 6-foot-7 senior has started in 20 games this season, logging 9.7 points, 5.4 rebounds, three assists and 2.5 steals on 33.4 minutes per game. If McConnell is unable to return against the Wolverines, Oskar Palmquist, who logged an 18-minute start against the Badgers, will likely handle a larger role against Michigan.
