This article is part of our College Basketball Waiver Wire series.
We're a bit guard heavy this week. One important thing to remember this week and next are mid-season transfers gaining eligibility. With the first semester now over, a plethora of players are being added to the mix and could see roles vary over the holidays. This column isn't too heavy there yet, but those type players figure to be sprinkled in over the coming weeks.
Power 6 Conferences
Jose Alvarado, G, Georgia Tech
There may not be much upside here, but Alvarado has been a consistent producer for the Jackets. Now back from a sprained ankle, expect Alvarez to be his usual self, putting up somewhere near 12 points, three rebounds, three assists and two steals nightly.
Jeremiah Francis, G, North Carolina
A new week, another new Tar Heel to consider as they continue figuring out their rotation without Cole Anthony. Francis hasn't moved into the starting lineup yet, but that seems like only a formality. His minutes have increased in each of his four appearances, and it's very obvious the Heels offense runs better with him at the lead. He can get into the lane successfully, leading to assists and free throw chances, aiding his scoring potential. So long as he stays healthy, he looks like a terrific dynasty target, and it's reasonable to think he and Anthony can co-exist when the latter returns, with Anthony shifting off the ball. Anthony Harris also merits consideration for UNC.
Devonte Green, G, Indiana
