DEN vs PHX Dream11 Match Prediction
Considering the Suns’ hot-streak, they are the favorites, but since they are playing away from home, getting a win will not be easy. Nuggets will look for contributions from their bench and get more depth, while Phoenix must be pleased with the state of things with both its starters and the bench players. Suns have an edge of form over the Nuggets, but the Joker will be itching to get the momentum going for the Nuggets and make inroads during this home fixture. A lot of young talent will participate in the exciting team between two Western Conference teams.

Denver Nuggets vs Phoenix Suns, Key Players:
Nikola Jokic
PPG: 24.8
APG: 13.5
RPG: 11.8
The superstar Jokic can’t certainly be blamed for the Nuggets’ losing record so far. He has been stellar and posted an average of triple-double, truly MVP-like numbers so far. He is coming off 26 points, 11 rebounds, 12 assists, and 2 steals outing against the Sacramento Kings. Jokic needs some assistance from his teammates to avert losing another game in a trot. He is the automatic choice as the Super-Player for the Dream11 Fantasy basketball showdown.
Devin Booker
PPG: 20.2

APG: 4.2
SPG: 1.4
There is no doubt that Booker will improve his scoring average if he remains healthy, it is a matter of time, and he is too much equipped to be having a lesser average in PPG as of now. During his last outing, he lodged 25 points, 7 assists, 3 rebounds, and 1 block. He will look to capitalize on this game to further his scoring ambitions.
Michael Porter Jr.
PPG: 19.5
RPG: 6.8
BPG: 1.5
Michael is having a stellar start to the season and will look to build upon it further in the games going forward. He has become the second scoring option besides Jokic and is looking like a future star in the Association with the way he has been going. He is coming off a spectacular performance against the Kings, where he registered 30 points, 10 rebounds, and 2 blocks. These types of outings make him an interesting draft pick.
Mikal Bridges
PPG: 15.6
RPG: 6.0
BPG: 1.4
Mikal is another up-and-coming Forward in the League, who has given Suns fans a lot of hopes in his third season. He has been highly consistent and has posted remarkable numbers so far. He lodged 16 points, 6 rebounds, 2 blocks, and 1 steal in his last performance against the Utah Jazz. He is looking like a promising player and the Suns will hope he continues a similar trajectory for their success.

Sleeper picks:
DeAndre Ayton: The Suns defensive Big is averaging a double-double(10.0 PPG and 11.4 RPG) so far and 1.4 BPG. He is coming off 4 points, 9 rebounds, and 2 blocks outing against the Jazz. His scoring output is a matter of concern so far.
Monte Morris: The Nuggets SG has been a decent scorer and is averaging 12.8 PPG. He lodged 24 points in his last match against the Kings.
Cameron Johnson: Cameron has been a sweet surprise for the Suns since last season and his average of 14.4 PPG has helped his team in terms of Forward depth.

NoteJae Crowder posted 16 points and 6 rebounds in his last outing versus the Jazz.
Cameron Payne lodged 10 points and 4 assists in his last match against the Jazz.
Chris Paul leads Suns with 9.2 APG.
Jokic leads Nuggets in all major statistical categories except BPG.
