RJ Barrett, Duke ($9,400 FD, $10,900 DK): With Zion Williamson (knee) ruled out again, Barrett is yet again an elite play and a cash game cornerstone. Barrett has played all 40 minutes in back-to-back games since Zion went down, posting totals of 57.75 and 45.25 DK points. He took a combined 42 shots in those games, which resulted in 63 points. Virginia Tech's slow pace and solid defense might give some cause for concern, and also makes the over/under of 145.0 sit right in the middle of the pack for the slate. Barrett is the type of player that breaks these kind of statistics, however. He'll likely be the No. 2 pick in the NBA draft, and remember, he was a higher-rated recruit than Zion after all. This will be the toughest matchup Duke sees until the finale with North Carolina, and I expect Barrett to rise to the occasion.
Ethan Happ, Wisconsin ($8,900 FD, $11,000 DK): Happ is out of the mix for me on DraftKings given you can get Barrett for cheaper, but his FanDuel price at least makes things interesting. Like Barrett, Happ has a relatively tough matchup against an Indiana team that ranks No. 26 in defense and No. 246 in tempo, per KenPom.

On the bright side, Happ saw Juwan Morgan and the Hoosiers at home during his junior
