Markus Howard, Marquette ($8,700 FD, $9,800 DK): Howard is dealing with a minor groin issue that hasn't stopped him from playing, but limited his effectiveness Saturday. He had just 22.3 DraftKings points against the Friars after reaching 40-plus in six of the previous eight games. Other than the ever-so-slight injury risk, he's in a great spot tonight after scoring 38 points in 38 minutes in his first meeting with Villanova this year. The matchup numbers don't look particularly great, especially given the fact that Villanova's tempo checks in at No. 338 in the nation, according to KenPom. Their defense is very average (No. 81), however, and I believe Marquette can force them to play at their pace, at least for stretches. Even if it's not Howard, I'd heavily advise getting some type of piece of this game, whether it be Phil Booth, the Hauser brothers or Sacar Anim ($5,000 FD, $4,500 DK) – the latter being a potential value play after scoring 18 in their first meeting.
Grant Williams, Tennessee ($8,600 FD, $9,700 DK): Williams has come back down to earth of late. While he's scored 30 or more DK points in four straight, he hasn't hit 4x on DraftKings since February 2 against Texas A&M. He and the Volunteers hit the road Wednesday for a matchup against Mississippi, a team that plays at an above-average pace (No. 122) with respectable defense (No. 55). Wednesday will represent the first and only meeting of the year between these two
