Best DraftKings plays for Indiana-Northwestern

Here are your best DraftKings plays for Saturday's Indiana-Northwestern game.

A new feature on AllHoosiers.com will give you our best DraftKings plays for each Indiana game. Here's a look at our best bets for Saturday's Indiana-Northwestern contest.

BEST BETS

YOGI FERRELL ($8,300): Yes, he's the most expensive player in this game, but Ferrell has been both terrific and consistent in Big Ten play. He's put up at least 26 fantasy points in each of his last 7 games, and he's scored at least 33.75 points in four of those seven. Ferrell often performs even better when facing another elite guard, and that will be the case with Terre Haute native Bryant McIntosh. Expect more solid numbers from Ferrell on Saturday.

THOMAS BRYANT ($6,200): Bryant remains relatively cheap on DraftKings, and he should be a good value pick on Saturday. Bryant will match up with Northwestern's Alex Olah, who is rusty in his return from injury. Bryant's interior quickness and ability to play both inside and out will give Olah problems. 

SLEEPER PICK

OG ANUNOBY ($4,000): Anunoby has put up at least 16.75 fantasy points in all but one of Indiana's six Big Ten games, and his length and athleticism will gave a team like Northwestern real problems. At $4,000, he remains a real value pick.

PLAYERS TO FADE

BRYANT MCINTOSH ($8,100): McIntosh has had a terrific year and has one of highest usage rates in the Big Ten, but his matchup with Ferrell is not favorable for daily fantasy users. He's among the most expensive players in Saturday's early games, and Ferrell usually locks down opposing star guards. McIntosh hasn't scored more than 28 fantasy points in a road Big Ten game. 

TROY WILLIAMS ($7,500): Williams is the second most expensive player on the Indiana roster, but he's a risky pick for the price. Williams has been up and down in terms of production lately, and he was terrific last time out. History suggests Williams won't be worth his $7,500 price tag on Saturday.
