The NBA Season is a gift that keeps giving and world’s best basketball players showcase their skills regularly. In their season opener, Miami Heat host the reigning champions Milwaukee Bucks. More about MIA vs MIL Dream11 will be given below.
Miami Heat had a disappointing 2020-21 season but brought in Kyle Lowry and PJ Tucker to the fore in offseason. The Jimmy Butler-led squad can pose defensive issues with Lowry and himself as superb perimeter defenders. While, Tucker and Adebayo can shut it down inside the three-point line down the paint. In terms of fantasy value, Butler, Lowry, and Adebayo are primary choices. Meanwhile, Tyler Herro can provide value off the bench. How will the pairing of Lowry and Butler work out for the Heat?
The Bucks beat Nets in an emphatic fashion to begin the campaign. Not much need to be said about the Bucks, the defending champions. The team has a lot of length with stalwart Forwards in Giannis and Middleton, while Holiday can pretty much do it all on the floor. Milwaukee can play superbly on both ends of the floor and will be aiming for another title. In terms of fantasy value, Giannis is a fantasy galore, while Middleton and Jrue also offer a lot. In mid-to-low tier picks, Pat Connaughton, Lopez, and Grayson Allen can prove to be substantial options.

*stats from Bucks last game, Miami yet to play*
Giannis Antetokounmpo (MIL)
Antetokounmpo is a fantasy machine and is the reigning Finals MVP. The lengthy and athletic Forward can disrupt oppositions on both ends of the floor. He compiled a round 65 Fantasy Points in the last game and that is worthy enough for him to be picked. He can be selected as a Star/Pro Player in the Dream 11 NBA Fantasy scenario
Jimmy Butler (MIA)
Butler is among the most heralded players in the league. He plays strong perimeter defense and can also score in bunches. Butler can get around 40-50 Fantasy points on a consistent basis
Khris Middleton (MIL)
Middleton is a superb mid-tier fantasy option. He is a terrific scorer, goes hard on rebounds, and has improved his passing skills. The Forward reels around 35-40 fantasy points consistently.
Kyle Lowry (MIA)
After having a terrific career in Toronto, Kyle joins a sturdy Heat team. The team can fit into his “heart and hustle” style well. Lowery is a great fantasy option, hoarding points, assists, and valuable steals consistently. Expect him to be in a 35-40 fantasy points range regularly.
Jrue Holiday (MIL)
Holiday forms a strong defensive outfit in the Bucks and propelled his team to a title last year. The two-way guard can be a terrific fantasy option. Although he notched around 17 fantasy points in last game, you can expect him in the 35-40 fantasy points range.
Robustly built Bam primarily plays the Center position. He is well-adept at scoring, rebounding, and also paying defense. Expect the big to compile 35-45 fantasy points regularly.
Brook Lopez (MIL)
Lopez is a superb inside player and he provides a terrific last line of defense for the Bucks. He is a great shot-blocker which helps him to build up fantasy points. You can expect 25-30 fantasy points from him on regular basis.
Tyler Herro (MIA)
Herro is steadily heading towards becoming a 20 PPG scorer and has hit strides in his young career. He is one of those athletes who bring a high value for a reasonable credit price. Expect the guard to spin up 25-30 fantasy points often.
Pat Connaughton (MIL)
Pat was huge piece in the Bucks title run last season. He is highly recommended in the fantasy lineup for he plays decent minutes and brings a high value for low-credit. Expect 18-25 fantasy points from him.
Duncan Robinson (MIA)
Robinson is a knockdown long-range shooter and has given Heat a great option to stretch the defenses. However, since scoring is his only forte, don’t expect more than 15-20 fantasy points regularly.
Jordan Nwora (MIL)
Nworda keeps on improving his game and makes a case of playing around 25 minutes per game. Jordan can scoop up points and rebounds at a decent clip. Expect 25-30 fantasy points from him if he gets consistent minutes.
Grayson Allen (MIL) is primarily a floor spreader with this threes. He reeled in around 28 fantasy points in the last game. Expect 20-25 from him.
PJ Tucker (MIA) can help balance fantasy lineups. Expect around 15 fantasy points at best.
George Hill (MIL) can be a decent pick to balance the fantasy lineup. Expect 10-14 fantasy points.
