Alabama Crimson Tide DFS Spin
Noah Gurley finished Tuesday's 84-64 victory over Jackson State with 16 points (7-13 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five rebounds, two blocks and one steal in 20 minutes. Gurley's 16 points are his best across 12 games the Crimson Tide have played in between Nov. 7 and Dec. 20. The backup is expected to be more valued if Noah Clowney continues sitting out. But considering he has an illness less problematic than most injuries, Gurley could serve as a backup again when the Crimson Tide play at Mississippi State on Dec. 28.
Mississippi State Bulldogs DFS Spin
Shakeel Moore (undisclosed) did not play during Mississippi State's 58-52 loss Tuesday at Drake. Currently, Mississippi State's next game is scheduled Dec. 28 versus Alabama. Moore has more than one week to recover before the matchup.
