The most recent fantasy college basketball news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisMoore, a Cal transfer, will have to sit out a year before continuing his collegiate eligibility. Moore had a successful freshman season, averaging 12.2 points, 3.5 assists, 2.0 rebounds, and 1.1 steals in 28.8 minutes per game. He is a fantastic addition to help replace Devonte Graham and Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk once they graduate after the 2017-18 season.
Fantasy AnalysisMcRae played for South Plains College for two years, averaging 6.0 points in 13.6 minutes per game in 2016-17. He will have to sit out the 2017-18 season before using his remaining eligibility at Buffalo.
Fantasy AnalysisAfter missing the 2016-17 season due to left knee surgery, the sophomore guard has opted to transfer to Portland. He'll continue his rest and rehabilitation with hopes of being cleared to play in the 2017-18 season.
Fantasy AnalysisAs was somewhat expected, Johnson, who was projected to be no more than a late second-round pick, will return to La Salle to hone his skills during his senior year in an effort to improve his draft stock after likely not getting the feedback he wanted from NBA scouts. He finished last season averaging 17.6 points, 6.3 rebounds, 1.1 steals and 1.0 assists across 32.6 minutes per game.
Fantasy AnalysisSimmons was an All-MAC selection last season after averaging 15.9 points, 6.5 assists, and 3.5 rebounds for the Bobcats. The 6-foot-1 guard helped Ohio win 22 conference games over the past two seasons. He should get plenty of playing time with the Wolverines after backcourt starters Derrick Walton and Zak Irvin graduated.
Fantasy AnalysisDuring his time at Cleveland State, Edwards filled the role of guard and averaged 16.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 31.1 minutes per game. This is a great pickup for Arizona State, however since Edwards is still an undergraduate student-athlete, he won't be eligible to play until the 2018-19 season.
Fantasy AnalysisHughes had a sizable role with the Pirates during his freshman campaign, posting averages of 7.8 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.3 assists across 20.5 minutes. He did, however, shoot just 27 percent from the three-point line, so he'll clearly need some work in that category once he finds a new team. Look for announcement on Hughes' next landing spot later this summer, but due to the NCAA transfer rules, he'll have to sit out the 2017-18 season before being eligible the following year.
Fantasy AnalysisCheatham has spent his first two collegiate seasons with San Diego State and is coming off a sophomore campaign where he averaged 9.1 points, 6.3 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.1 steals across 23.4 minutes. The 6-foot-9 big man racked up three double-doubles during that span as well and adds a strong defensive presence as evidenced by his steals numbers. Due to the current NCAA transfer rules, Cheatham will have to sit out the 2017-18 season, but will then be available in 2018-19 with two years of eligibility remaining.
Fantasy AnalysisIn not hiring an agent, Carter will leave his options open, and unless he gets great feedback after testing the NBA waters, a return to school for his senior year is the most likely outcome. The point guard is, however, coming off a breakout season with West Virginia, averaging career highs across the board, posting 13.5 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game. He'll have until May 24th to make a final decision.
Fantasy AnalysisMcKnight is coming off a breakout season at Sacred Heart, averaging 18.9 points, 4.9 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.6 steals per game. He will now have two years of eligibility remaining after sitting out one season at his new school of choice.
Fantasy AnalysisJohnson's minutes fluctuated throughout the regular season as he commonly split time in Louisville's deep frontcourt rotation. However, the 6-foot-9 junior believes he has shown enough potential to leave school early and pursue a professional career. Johnson averaged 8.0 points and 5.8 rebounds over 20.5 minutes per game while shooting a very impressive 59 percent from the field.
Fantasy AnalysisPinson played over 20 minutes per game for the first time in his career at North Carolina and averaged 6.1 points, 4.6 rebounds and 3.7 assists over the course of his junior season. A defensive specialist, the most likely outcome for Pinson is a return to school for his senior year, but he will still test out the draft waters in search of some feedback regarding his stock first.
Fantasy AnalysisFollowing his first season as North Carolina's primary floor leader, Berry will test the NBA Draft waters, but not fully commit to leaving the program early. Berry averaged 14.7 points, 3.1 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game while shooting 38 percent from three in his junior season, but he lacks many of the desired measurements for a modern-day NBA point guard. He'll have one month to go through the process before having to make a final decision on whether or not he will return for his final season as a Tar Heel.
Fantasy AnalysisTwo weeks after declaring without an agent, the freshman big man out of Kentucky will now proceed with one, effectively ending his college career. Adebayo is expected to be a mid-to-late first-round draft pick, as the 6-foot-10 center averaged 13.0 points, 8.0 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game in his lone college season.
Fantasy AnalysisAfter failing to record a start during his two years at Saint Mary's, averaging 2.8 points across 6.2 minutes per game last season, Gonzalez has opted to transfer to UC Davis, likely in pursuit of a more significant role. That being said, he must sit out a year before he's eligible to play again.
