Rutgers Scarlet Knights DFS Spin

Aundre Hyatt chipped in 11 points (4-13 FG, 3-9 3Pt), seven rebounds and one steal in 34 minutes during Wednesday's 68-61 loss to Miami (FL). Hyatt scored over 10 points for the first time in three games but shot poorly en route to the loss. Whether Hyatt needs to do better from distance or pick better shots to take, he hasn't shown great efficiency.

Ohio State Buckeyes DFS Spin

Felix Okpara provided 10 points (3-7 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 12 rebounds, one assist, one block and two steals in 16 minutes during Saturday's 96-59 win over Saint Francis U. Okpara doesn't have a major role in the rotation just yet but getting a double-double in 16 minutes could change that. He might be able to make a bigger impact if he keeps this up in time for conference play.
