Auburn Tigers DFS Snapshot

Walker Kessler supplied 12 points (5-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-5 FT), 10 rebounds, one assist, eight blocks and one steal over 28 minutes during Wednesday's 77-64 win over Ole Miss. Kessler may have just missed his third triple-double of the season involving blocks, but it was still an exceptional fantasy day that also made a bit of history. He now has 131 blocks on the season -- five more than the mark of 126 set by Kyle Davis in the 2002-03 campaign. Kessler's 4.7 rejections per contest leads the entire country, and he'll have three regular season games remaining to build on his now-record-breaking mark.

Mississippi State Bulldogs DFS Snapshot

Rocket Watts (elbow) will miss the next two games for Mississippi State as a result of sprained ligaments in his elbow, Andy Kostka of The Jackson Clarion-Ledger reports. Watts, who has missed the last five games, will miss Wednesday's game against Auburn and Saturday's game against Texas A&M. The 6-foot-2 junior has appeared in 19 games, averaging 4.4 points, 0.9 rebounds, 0.6 assists and 0.4 steals on 13.4 minutes per game. Head coach, Ben Howland, is hopeful that he will be available for the SEC tournament.
