POL vs FRA Dream11 FIBA Men’s Qualifiers Projections, Stats & Analysis
Poland keeps up the ante
Poland has proven that they have a lot tools to offer and despite missing renowned names, they have showcased their resilience and immense grit repeatedly. Mateusz Ponitka and AJ Slaughter have been a solid one-two punch in the backcourt. Michal Solokowski has been strong at the wing and thanks to this backcourt-wing combination, the rebounding has been plentiful as the teams lack bigs that can go big on the boards.
Talking about bigs getting the boards, France has the golden chasm called Rudy Gobert who does know how to pull down rebounds. Apart from that, he is one of the best defenders in the world and can finish well at the rim. Thomas Huertel had a strong game in the last one but mostly, he has been so-so scoring-wise, still giving quality playmaking. Fournier despite being off at times, gives a solid guard scoring option. France is loaded with talent but has played too many close games.

FIBA EUROBASKET Scores, Fantasy Basketball Top Picks
Unsurprisingly, Gobert has been a huge factor on both ends and without him, the France unit would not have made it this far. I believe he will be in 15-22 points, 10+ rebounds, and 1-3 blocks range here. He can be selected as a Star/Pro Player in the Dream 11 Prediction scenario.
Ponitka has flat-out balled in the tournament and he has given the team everything you can ask for, just being an all-around player. I believe he will be in 14-19 points, 7-11 rebounds, and 7-10 assists range.
Yabusele has been a solid starting Forward who has been getting it done of the offensive end mostly, giving the French a strong frontcourt. I believe he will be in 11-15 points and 5-7 rebounds range.
AJ has given big-time scoring recently and he has helped the Polish cause more often than not. I believe he will be in 14-19 points and 3-6 assists range.
Fournier continues to be a volume shooter and even though, he may not be efficient during many nights, he brings solid scoring on to the table, attracting the defense. I expect a 15-21 points range here.
Wing Michal has been getting it done as a scorer and rebounder while giving solid defense as well. I believe he will be in 11-17 points and 4-6 rebounds range.
Guard Thomas had a tremendous match-winning performance in the last outing as a scorer and as usual, dished a ton of assists. I expect a 9-14 points and 6-9 assists range here.
Aleksander is a solid shooting big who has gotten it done as a scorer. I believe he will be in 9-14 points range here.
Luwawu-Cabarot had a solid outing in the last game and he has been as steady contributor at the wing position. I expect a 9-14 points range here.
Jaroslaw had a big night in the last game, which isn’t a usual occurrence. I expect a 7-11 points range here..
Tarpey has done a decent job as a role player. I expect a 5-8 points and 4-7 rebounds range here.
Adin gives solid minutes off-the-bench. I believe he will be in 5-9 points range.
Andrew doesn’t get many minutes.
Aaron gives decent minutes as a starter.
Fall doesn’t get many minutes.
Michal is a decent bench player.
