68 teams started on their quest a week ago. Only six remain. This is the point where most of the cream has risen to the top. The upstart Miami Hurricanes will take on Kansas in the Midwest Regional final. Tournament darlings St. Peter’s will take on the Tarheels in the destroyed East Region final. That’s right kids. The eight seed will be wearing the home whites in the final tournament. Welcome to the Madness of March.
We start off with Kansas and Miami in what promises to be an uncomfortable game for the Jayhawks. We finish it off with the blue bloods from Tobacco Road taking on the beloved Peacocks. Can the Peacocks win even when it’s not National Peacock Day? We’ll find out!
In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy college basketball lineup picks for DraftKings on 3/27/22 starting at 1:20 p.m. 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 DFS Guards – NCAA Tournament
Kameron McGusty, Miami ($7,500)
I miss this guy. As an Oklahoma fan, I was really disappointed when he transferred. I’m still happy for him though. McGusty had a pedestrian game against USC, but he has 77 Draft Kings points in the last two games. I’m a little nervous since it’s mostly based on his scoring output from him and you don’t really want to rely on that against a team like the Jayhawks. However, I still trust McGusty more than Agbaji right now. His ceiling is great for GPP usage.
Caleb Love, NC ($6,500)
Love had an epic second half to lead the Tarheels to victory over UCLA. He scored 20 points in the final 20 minutes to tally 42.25 DraftKings points. Don’t be alarmed by his pedestrian game against Baylor. The Bears are notoriously tough on shooters. St. Peter’s was able to handle a very good offensive team in Purdue, but how long can they keep it up? If you think the Peacocks’ luck has run out, rostering Love is a great way to prove that.
Remy Martin, Kansas ($6,300)
Martin is still too cheap. He has 131.25 DraftKings points over the last four games since Kansas started playing him heavy minutes again. The former Arizona State star is spearheading the Jayhawks through the playoffs right now. His shot from him is falling again, and he is the superb defender that he proved to be with the Sun Devils. This is a great matchup for Kansas. Once again, I will have a lot of Martin. He’s still too cheap on DraftKings.
Matthew Lee, St. Peter’s ($3,900)
It may have been Daryl Banks that got the Peacocks past Kentucky, but the rest of the team has stepped up with Banks going back to normal instead of superhero. I don’t really trust any of the St. Peter’s guards. I like the way they play, but North Carolina is going to be a problem for them. That’s why I’m after Lee. He has double-digit DraftKings points in seven straight games. I’ll take that for a bargain play on a slate that doesn’t have many.
Also consider: Ochai Agbaji, Kan. ($7,800); Charlie Moore, Miami ($7,100); R. J. Davis, North Carolina ($7,000); Isaiah Wong, Miami ($6,600); Doug Edert, St. Peter’s ($4,500)

DraftKings DFS Forwards – NCAA Tournament
Armando Bacot, North Carolina ($9,200)
Bacot has the highest floor of any player on the slate and his price went down $200! He hasn’t been under 35 DraftKings points since February 21 and hasn’t been under 30 since a foul-plagued game against Pitt on February 16. The ceiling isn’t too shabby either. St. Peter’s doesn’t have the size to tangle with Bacot here. He will be in every lineup I make.
Jalen Wilson, Kansas ($6,700)
Wilson has played some solid basketball all month long. Since the calendar flipped to March, Wilson has at least 23 DraftKings points in every game, including four games over 32 DraftKings points. He had his best game in that run against Providence and has back-to-back double-doubles. Now, if he could only get back to shooting 50% instead of 30%, he could break the slate.
Jordan Miller, Miami ($5,900)
Miller was Miami’s best player not named Kameron in the win over Iowa State. He was perfect from the floor on six tries and put at least one stat in every peripheral category. Kansas is a similarly physical team, so I expect Miller to be a huge piece of whatever Miami does in this game as well. The fact that he has at least 20 DraftKings points in every game for the last month makes this a sound investment.
Clarence Rupert, St. Peter’s ($3,200)
Rupert has his best game of the season for the Peacocks, putting up 24.75 DraftKings points in 22 minutes against Purdue. North Carolina isn’t quite the size of Purdue, but the Peacocks are still going top need the size. The fact that Rupert played well against Purdue makes him a pretty good dart throw. He has 48 DraftKings points in the three games of the NCAA Tournament so far.
Also consider: Brady Manek, North Carolina ($7,300); KC Ndefo, St. Peter’s ($6,900); Sam Waardenburg, Miami ($5,500); Hassan Drame, St. Peter’s ($4,600)
