We have 11 games on a Tuesday night. That’s a big night with some big names and teams involved. We start it off a bit earlier with Alabama tipping at Georgia at 6:30 eastern. A half hour later, Clemson gets started at Cameron Indoor along with DePaul in Philly to take on Villanova and Illinois hosting Michigan State.
An hour later we have Rutgers hosting Maryland and Baylor hosting Kansas State. A half hour after that Missouri hosts Auburn. 9 Eastern brings us Texas up I-35 in Fort Worth and Kentucky hosting Mississippi State. The left coast gets started an hour later with Oregon hosting Colorado. We finish this one off with UCLA hosting Arizona. How’s that for big names?
In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy college basketball lineup picks for DraftKings on 1/25/22 starting at noon eastern. I’ll be providing multiple player suggestions for players at guard and forward, aiming to highlight one option apiece at the high, middle, and lower end of the salary scale. Good luck, Roto Ballers.

DraftKings CBB DFS Guards
Wendell Green, Auburn ($8,400)
A poor game against Kentucky can be excused, especially when your team still wins the game. Green was in double figures in points once again, but foul trouble and zero rebounds hurt his chances at turning in another 30+ DraftKings points game. Green should get back on track tonight against a Missouri team that struggles on the perimeter.
Jaden Shackelford, Alabama (8,000)
Shackelford has piled up 76.75 DraftKings points over the last two games against Missouri and LSU. Georgia is one of the few SEC teams that is worst at keeping teams off the scoreboard than them. Shackelford is scoring at an elite pace right now thanks to his frequent trips to the foul line. It is worth noting that both of those games were at home and this is on the road. The officials might not be so kind, but Shackelford still has nice potential in this price range.
Justin Moore, Villanova ($7,200)
Both Moore and Gillespie had big games in the first meeting with DePaul about three weeks ago. Moore has been a little more consistent since then though. I don’t usually condone stacking too much on a slate this large, but the Villanova guards have a superb matchup against a team that they all obliterated value against earlier this month. I can’t argue with using both Moore and Gillespie in this one.
KD Johnson, Auburn ($6,000)
Johnson hit rock bottom in the January 4 game against South Carolina, when he made only one shot in 22 minutes. Since then he had at least 22 DraftKings points in every game. Johnson’s shot selection has been better. He has averaged 16.7 points per game in the five games since the South Carolina debacle. He doesn’t always provide a lot of peripheral stats, but there should still be plenty of points to go around against Georgia.
Jeremy Roach, Duke ($4,100)
Roach has come off the bench in three straight games now with Griffin starting, but if Trevor Keels is forced to miss this game (he is currently listed as doubtful), Roach should stay in the starting five for at least one more game. Roach racked up 23.75 DraftKings points against Syracuse in his spot start on Saturday and DraftKings didn’t adjust his price at all. We need this kind of value again!
Also consider: Johnny Juzang, UCLA ($8,300); Collin Gillespie, Villanova ($7,800); Ron Harper Jr., Rutgers ($7,200); Dalen Terry, Arizona ($5,800); De’Vion Harmon, Oregon ($5,500); Noah Baumann, Ga. ($5,100); A. J. Hoggard, Michigan State ($4,500)

DraftKings CBB DFS Forwards
Oscar Tshiebwe, Kentucky ($9,300)
Tshiebwe has double-digit rebounds in all but two games this year. he is averaged 15 rebounds a game this year along with his 16 points. That’s a floor of about 35 DraftKings points, a mark that he has hit in all but four of his 19 games from him. Tshiebwe is the safest pick out there because he’ll haul in the boards no matter what pace the game plays at.
Walker Kessler, Auburn ($8,800)
Kessler is dangerous when he’s not fouling out. After back-to-back disqualifications against Florida and Alabama two weeks ago (he fouled out in just 12 minutes against the Tide), Kessler came back with a bang. He has 129.75 DraftKings points over the last three games in dominant performances against Ole Miss and Georgia and a win over SEC contender Kentucky. My only fear with Kessler here is that Auburn might blow out Missouri. Build your lineups accordingly.
PJ Hall, Clemson ($7,200)
Duke has been better up front since inserting Griffin into the starting lineup, but the 6’9″ Hall is still going to be an issue for the Blue Devils. Hall is long and athletic and a very good shooter. He’s strong on the boards and has good court vision.Duke will fare a little better against Clemson because the Tigers don’t have really big guys up front, but they are big enough.Hall can still be a mismatch in this game.
Braelen Bridges, Georgia ($5,900)
Bridges has made 19 of his 32 shots in the last three games and is piling on the peripheral stats as well. This game should be a haven for the good shooters to have great games. It seems like a gift that a shooter like Bridges is this cheap. Alabama doesn’t really have the size to push him around down low. Georgia will try to slow the game down some, which certainly means they’ll funnel the offense through Bridges. That was their answer against South Carolina and Auburn, two teams that also play relatively fast.
Malik Hall, Michigan State ($4,700)
This is a sneaky spot if Kofi Cockburn is out again. Chasing Illinois value at forward proved fruitless on Saturday as the team just ran with four guards instead. That may be the case here as well. That would leave the middle open for Hall to operate on the other end. Hall has quietly played well of late, picking up 94.25 Draft Kings points over the last four games. He had his best game against the trees of Wisconsin, so he might still be in play even if Cockburn clears concussion protocols.
Also consider: Paolo Banchero, Duke ($9,200); Donta Scott, Md. ($7,700); Jabari Smith, Auburn ($7,000); Timmy Allen, Texas ($6,200); AJ Griffin, Duke ($5,700); Marcus Bingham, Michigan State ($4,400)
