LAL vs GSW Dream11 Prediction, Fantasy Basketball Tips, Starting Five, Team Details, 20 October


The NBA Regular Season will begin now and it will start with a bang with a couple of pleasant doubleheaders. In the second of the double-header, LeBron James and Los Angeles  Lakers take on Steph Curry and Golden State Warriors. More about LAL vs GSW Dream11 will be given below.

LAL vs GSW Dream11 Prediction

Two teams who always put on a show especially when healthy in Warriors and Lakers will clash against each other.

Lakers have three players who can rack up high fantasy points. Westbrook is the fantasy machine who has put on a lot of triple-double seasons now. Whereas LeBron James is also a triple-double threat and Anthony Davis can get big on scoring, rebounds, and those valuable steals and blocks. Lakers will aim for a championship and has more depth than last season with Carmelo also into the fray.

Warriors have been having a hard time ever since Klay Thompson went down. But it doesn’t matter to Stephen Curry, who plays like an MVP and once he goes off, pray for your safety. Jordan Poole is the “X-Factor” this year and can scoop in fantasy points through scoring. Draymond Green is able to put on high fantasy points courtesy of his rebounding, assists, steals, and blocks. Golden State has a big season ahead and acquisitions like Otto Porter Jr. can become difference-makers.

Lakers 2021 Captain

Warriors 2021 Captain

Stephen Curry is one of the best shooters to ever play the game.

LAL vs GSW Top Picks

Anthony Davis (LAL)
Davis suffered a lot due to injury last season and will look to regain the 2019-20 NBA season form. Anthony is well-known for his dominating presence on both ends of the floor. He can rack up points, rebounds, and assists at a high clip.

Stephen Curry (GSW)
Stephen gets you buckets, period, blank period. In the last preseason game, the guard exploded for 41 points and that is no surprise. Curry is a high-value fantasy pick because he is well-adept at notching points, assists, and steals.

Russell Westbrook (LAL)
Russ is a dream fantasy option. He does it all, scoring, assists, rebounds, steals, etc. The top-class PG is aiming for a ring and although his scoring may reduce a bit with the stacked roster, he remains an option for the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA scenario.

Andrew Wiggins (GSW)
Wiggins is a dynamic Forward and can hold his own against tough match-ups too. His fantasy value can be gauged in terms of 15-20 points per night, blocked shots, and a decent amount of rebounds. Andrew is a great option for the Warriors to put on some points.

LeBron James (LAL)
LeBron is a living legend in the league and there are not many players who have had an impact like him. In terms of fantasy value, the Forward shows a lot of mettle, scooping up points, rebounds, and assists at a high clip.

Otto Porter Jr. (GSW)

Porter Jr. is a terrific role player. The athletic forward will play a vital role for the Warriors and can become a more than decent option off the bench. For his credit value, Porter can be a steal.

Carmelo Anthony (LAL)
Anthony has become a perimeter shooter and a fourth option at the tail-end of his career. In terms of fantasy value, he only brings scoring to the floor on most nights and a decent 3-6 rebounds per game average. Will he start for Los Angeles Lakers?

Draymond Green (GSW)
Draymond may have a high credit value but there is a reason for that. The Forward is one of the best big passers to play the game and has the tendency to get big on boards. But perhaps, his defense is the most impressive aspect about his game and he can get 1-3 of those golden steals every game.

Jordan Poole (GSW)
Poole can be the future of the Warriors franchise. He has shored up shooting big-time and may be heading for a 15-17 PPG season if things click. Poole is a must-have player for his low fantasy credit.

Rajon Rondo(LAL)
Rondo is way past his prime years but the guard can still notch decent number of rebounds and assists. He is worth a gamble with that low credit score.

Damion Lee (GSW)
Damion can play 15-20 minutes per game this season. For his low credit score, he may provide a balancing act.

Other Picks

Malik Monk
who is probable for the game can become a major fantasy option going ahead.

Juan Toscano-Anderson
and Nemanja Bjelica can turn out to be decent options down the line.
