Michigan Wolverines DFS Spin
Jaelin Llewellyn (knee) is out across the 2022-23 Wolverines' remaining season, according to their official website. Llewellyn has damage in his left ACL, which will require both surgery (expected sometime during January) and rehabilitation. The senior averaged 7.0 points across eight games he played from Nov. 7 to Dec. 4. Currently, his return status is unspecified. Fantasy managers should expect Dug McDaniel or Joey Baker to be a part of the 2022-23 Wolverines' starting lineup while Llewellyn sits out their remaining games.
Minnesota Golden Gophers DFS Spin
Jamison Battle totaled 21 points (8-17 FG, 5-10 3Pt), one rebound and two assists across 36 minutes during Sunday's 89-70 loss to Purdue. Battle has only played four times this season since returning from a foot injury and has scored at least 17 in two of his last three games. As he's already playing over 34 minutes per game, Battle figures to be a top scorer for the Gophers by matching or surpassing his 17.5 PPG from last season.
