The NBA season has some squads full of All-stars while other squads look to build through draft talent, the two contrasting types will be seen here. In this game, Superstar Kevin Durant and Brooklyn Nets take on a young Detroit Pistons. More about BKN vs DET Dream11 will be given below.
Brooklyn Nets have split their first six games. However, the last game showed some promise especially in regards to James Harden who may have gotten his mojo back. Kevin Durant is unsurprisingly the team’s leading scorer and has also gone big on boards. The Nets have some major issues with depth and will hope Mills and Harris become more productive. Meanwhile, Aldridge’s performance in the last game also left a positive impression. Griffin is not producing at the front-line and perhaps Aldridge may slide into starting role soon.
Detroit has four players in the starting lineup who have just 2/3 years of experience in the league and it means that the team is young. Saddiq Bey has shown tremendous growth in a short period while Cade Cunningham is just getting back from an injury. Killian Hayes has not shown his chops yet while Isaiah Stewart has been decent. The Pistons may be heading for a sub-20 win season as things stand.

*last game stats*
Kevin Durant (BKN)
Kevin has led from the front many times and for many years. The Forward is one of the best scorers to set foot on an NBA floor. Now, Durant will look to carry the load along with Harden with his teammate Kyrie Irving away maybe for a long time. He can be selected as the Star/Pro Player in the Dream 11 NBA Fantasy scenario.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 52-68
Despite a tough time in the last game, Bey is developing into a solid two-way player in the league. He is averaging 18.3 PPG, 9.5 RPG to begin the season. Can Detroit build around young Bey?
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 30-38
James Harden (BKN)
James may have figured out how to navigate through new foul rules after initial struggles. The Guard went to the line 19 times in the last game and clicked on 16 of the free throws. How big will this be for the depleted Nets?
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 40-52
Jerami Grant (DET)
After struggling in the initial games, Grant may have figured out his offense this season. The Forward led the team in scoring last season and sometimes seemed to be the only effective option on the floor.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 34-45
LaMarcus Aldridge (BKN)
Aldridge is getting his feet back and if he can sustain even a 10-15 PPG type of season it will be huge for the Nets. By the way, the Forward two games with 21 points or more this season.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 21-33
Kelly has been producing points off the bench for the Pistons. He is averaging 13.8 PPG, 5.0 RPG, 2.8 APG and provides some much-needed offense to the team.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 24-31
Joe Harris (BKN)
Joe is a superb perimeter shooter who has produced some terrific numbers over the past few years. However, he has struggled this season so far and is yet to find his rhythm.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 12-22
Isaiah Stewart (DET)
Stewart is the starting Center for the team and also a crucial last-line-of-defense. He can show some grit on the rebounding end too while chipping in with some points here and there.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 20-29
Bruce is figuring out his role in the starting line-up for the Nets. A hard-working two-way player, Brown will need to shut it down from the perimeter and beyond.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 15-24
Josh Jackson (DET)
Josh hasn’t developed into the player many experts thought he would be but such are the rigors of professional basketball. Still, he can give some solid production every now and then.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 19-26
Patty has been a little quiet after a strong start to the season. He has only scored 5 and 4 in the last two games but a player of his experience and talent can bounce back from such nights.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 14-20
Trey Lyles (DET)
Lyles’ early career has been bothered by injuries and inconsistent playing minutes. Can he solidify a role here?
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 19-28
#1 Draft Pick Cade Cunningham (DET) had 2 points, 7 rebounds. 2 assists in the last game but he comes back from an injury so may take time to get into a rhythm.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 19-28
Cory Joseph had 11 points, 1 rebound, 6 assists in the last game.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 10-20
Blake Griffin(BKN) had 3 points, 3 rebounds in the last game.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 10-19
