DraftKings is keeping up their college basketball DFS momentum with another 6-figure prize pool on Friday. The opening round of March Madness was highlighted by a GPP with $50,000 to first. Friday’s contest has an attractive $20,000 top prize. The 16-game slate tops off at 12:15 p.m. ET. Player salaries have been released so veteran college basketball DFS players and those new to the game can start thinking about projections, ownerships and lineup construction.
March Madness is the the most exciting time for new players to get in the college hoops DFS streets. But that also means players with a fantasy point and ownership projections can take advantage of casual players. It’s the perfect reason to sign-up for Stokastic’s March Madness 2023 package. Stokastic’s college basketball DFS coverage includes full fantasy point and ownership projections throughout the tournament, player usage data and access to our experts in Discord.
DraftKings Running Large College Basketball DFS Prizes for March Madness Day Two
The DraftKings DFS tournaments for the first day of March Madness are raging on, but it won’t stop players from getting a bead on the tournaments for Day 2. The highest owned players from the early games this Thursday were Steven Ashworth of Utah State and Shy Odom of Howard at 30.49% and 28.26%, respectively. Odom looked like a strong value play entering the slate and he didn’t disappoint, putting up 29.5 DK points at a $4,300 salary. Stokastic’s projections had him projected for 19.48 DK points, and even that would be a strong points per dollar return.
Lineups with Grady Dick look especially strong at this point in the slate. Kansas’ standout forward is tops in DK points with 48.75. At just under 5% ownership and a middling $6,900 salary, college basketball DFS players that rostered him are in a strong spot.
Looking ahead to tomorrow, the projections have yet to be released, but the top plays from a fantasy points projection stick out. Only one player, Tyler Kolek tops $10,000 in salary at the guard spot. However, forward is loaded. Zach Edey comes in at $11,200, Trayce Jackson-Davis at $11,500, Oscar Tshiebwe at $10,500, and Drew Timme at $10,100.
The field will be on the lookout for value plays if they want to get to those top options. Stokastic’s college basketball DFS projections will help spot those value opportunities to take advantage of.
DraftKings‘ flagship DFS tournament on Friday has $20,000 to first and $10k to second place. The contest is a 150-max with 6,535 entries. The total prize pool is $100,000. 46.40% of that will be paid to the top ten finishing lineups. Approximately 22% of the field will get paid.
Stokastic’s March Madness package will be set with projections long before these slates lock, and experts will be available for Discord Q & A as college basketball DFS players build for these GPPs. Continue to check back with more DFS contest news as the tournament approaches.
