More information about DEN vs MEM Dream11 will be given here.
Nuggets’ season: Denver has been in terrific form especially since March and has given a lot of trouble to the opposition, one of the main reasons for this turn in fortunes has clearly been Michael Porter, who is racking 20+ points nights one after another. Nuggets also have a reliable defensive guard in Will Barton. They also acquired Aaron Gordon in the mid-season trade, which has bolstered their Forward position. Nuggets are placed 4th in the NBA Standings for Western Conference.
Grizzlies’ season: Memphis is going through a crucial phase right now and they need to cling to their spot right now, as the Golden State Warriors are inching in close. Grizzlies have a reliable playmaker in Morant, a great inside player and rebounder in Jonas Valanciunas, Dillon Brooks can stretch the floor, and players like Melton, Grayson Allen, Jaren Jackson display the depth this team has coming off the bench. Memphis is barely clinging to the 8th spot in the Western Conference rankings.

PFP(Projected Fantasy Points): 48
Jokic has revolutionized the Center position and his all-around chops have enabled him to lead Nuggets in PPG, RPG, APG, and SPG. He has gotten a great deal of help from his team since February and now he doesn’t have to score 30-40 points every night for his team to be effective, decreasing the load on him. Jokic is an excellent pick-up as the Super Player in the Dream11 NBA scenario.
Although fatigue has affected Morant in terms of taking care of the ball and score since April, he still remains the primary source of playmaking and scoring for the Grizzlies. The young guard has done a remarkable job of setting up the offense and is a fighter at the defensive end. He is averaging 26.4 PPG and 6.6 RPG for the last 5 games.
Michael Porter Jr.:
The athletic young player has overcome his injury impediments since December and has shown remarkable progress throughout each month. His emergence as a scorer and rebounder at the SF spot gives his team a terrific flavor and has helped them lodge wins. He is averaging an impressive 23.1 PPG this month so far.
Jonas has been one of the most consistent big men and has increased his output with each month. He is tough to guard inside and has amazing rebounding skills. The big man is averaging 20.6 PPG so far this month.
Dillon Brooks: PPG: 16.8 SPG: 1.2 TPG: 2.0 PFP: 27
Brooks provides shooting at the guard spot but he can break off the defense with his dribbling too. He has been vital in expanding the offensive schemes of his team and is averaging 19 PPG so far this month.
Aaron Gordon(Since joining Nuggets): PPG: 10.9 RPG: 4.8 TPG: 1.3
While Gordon is not producing great numbers in terms of offense, he does give the Nuggets depth at the Forward position. He will like to step up his game further and notch up some big games every now and then.
Kyle Anderson: PPG: 12.2 RPG: 6.0 APG: 3.6 SPG: 1.2 TPG: 1.2
The Forward is known for his quirky style of play and relies on balance and fundamentals since he is not as athletic as most Forwards in the League. Despite that, he is able to score, assist, and rebound consistently. He is averaging 6.8 RPG, 4.6 APG, and 1.6 SPG since the month started.
Grayson Allen: PPG: 11.2 RPG: 3.2 SPG: 1.0 TPG: 1.0 PFP: 22
Jaren Jackson: PPG: 19.0 RPG: 5.5 BPG: 2.5 PFP: 33
