PFP: 49(Projected Fantasy Points)
Jokic has carried the Nuggets all season long and leads them in all five major statistical categories. He has become one of the most imposing big men and his all-around skills allow him to be one of the best players in the League and a candidate for the MVP award. Jokic is an excellent choice as the Super-Player in Dream11 NBA scenario
Beal leads the league in terms of PPG and has posted multiple games with 30+ points. Earlier in the season, he also erupted for 62 points in the Wizards’ loss. Despite his scoring toolkit, the team has been unable to exert pressure on opponents on both ends of the floor, however, they have played better recently.
Russell turns the ball over a lot and has an iffy shooting percentage for the season. However, in the last 3 games, he has averaged 26 PPG, 11 RPG, and 11 APG, while shooting more than 50% from the field, which implies that he has found his groove.
Murray has matured at a quick rate for the Nuggets and as the second option on the offense, he has stitched together a wonderful season. He gets openings playing with Jokic, who attracts defense towards him. He has put up 7 nights in a row with 22+ points and even eclipsed the 30 points mark thrice in this incredible run.
Michael Porter Jr.: PPG: 13.8 RPG: 6.2 BPG: 1.1 PFP: 28
MPJ is still a young player and has a long career ahead of him, nonetheless, he has done a great job in dealing with his injuries and still staying relevant to the cause of his team through his athletic abilities.
Rui Hachimura: PPG: 13.3 RPG: 5.7 PFP: 20
Like Porter Jr., Rui is also young and his youth displays during certain nights when he is absent on both ends. Despite his raw skills, he has managed more respectable numbers and will need to work a lot on his game to be recognized as an elite player in the Association.
Will Barton: PPG: 11.5 RPG: 3.8 APG: 3.1 PFP: 19
The wiry SF is a consistent scorer and defensive player for Denver and he has helped them on both ends of the floor. Will continues to be a start for the Nuggets and has done a decent job there.
Davis Bertans: PPG: 11.0 RPG: 3.0 PFP: 17
Moritz Wagner: PPG: 7.6 RPG: 3.1 PFP: 20
