Buffalo Bulls DFS Snapshot
Jeenathan Williams has withdrawn from 2021 NBA Draft consideration and will return to Buffalo for his senior season, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports. The stock of Williams was at an all-time high after averaging career-best in scoring (17.6 ppg) and rebounding (6.8 rpg) during a pandemic-shortened junior season. The 6-5 wing ultimately made a wise move and got his draft stock tested, but he'll end up returning to college for another season. Buffalo finished second in the MAC last year, but fell in the conference tournament to Ohio and ultimately was bounced in the first round of the NIT. The return of Williams certainly bodes well for the 2021-22 outlook, and he'll be a useful fantasy asset in any formats using the Mid American Conference.
