MIL vs BKN Dream11 Prediction, Fantasy Basketball Tips, Starting Five, Team Details, 20 October

Share

Fans of the NBA, get yourself ready, the NBA season is going to hit the gong and kickstart today. And what a way to begin the season, with two mouth-watering games! In the first of the double-header, the NBA champions Milwaukee Bucks fight it out versus star-studded Brooklyn Nets. More about MIL vs BKN Dream11 will be given below.

MIL vs BKN Dream11 Prediction

This is a terrific game for fantasy lovers. Superstars and high-producing players like Kevin Durant, James Harden, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jrue Holiday, and Khris Middleton feature here.

The Bucks won the championshiop last season and Giannis Antetokounmpo produced an NBA Finals MVP outing. The team has other scorers and stellar defenders in Jrue Holiday and Khris Middleton. Whereas, Brook Lopez provides intimidating inside defense and more than decent scoring. For fantasy lovers, focus can be laid upon players like Grayson Allen, who can eke out around 10 points while having a low credit value.

The Nets come to the floor after an injury-riddled season and without Kyrie Irving, who can’t play until getting a vaccination jab. This is a tricky situation but with high-value players in Kevin Durant and James Harden, the team is still a contender. The veteran frontcourt of Aldridge, Millsap, and Griffin can make up for the decent depth. On the other hand, Patty Mills brings scoring off the bench, and for fantasy fans, he can be a great option with a low credit value to fill out the Fantasy lineup.

Milwaukee 2021 Captain

Giannis Antetkounmpo fills the stat sheet almost every night.

Brooklyn 2021 Captain

Kevin Durant and James Harden are both superb Fantasy options.

MIL vs BKN Top Picks

Kevin Durant (BKN)
Durant is one of the best scorers to ever play in the league. He brings a winning mentality and has hit countless clutch buckets in his career. In terms of fantasy value, his points, assists, rebounds, blocks, and steals, all bring high value. He will be looking for the championship this season.

Giannis Antetkounmpo (MIL)
Giannis is an absolute menace at both ends of the floor. He has been the league’s MVP a couple of times and also won the Finals MVP award last season. Antetokounmpo brings high value as he can rack up points, rebounds, assists, steals, and blocks at a high clip. He was among the top fantasy picks last season and can be selected in the Dream 11 NBA Fantasy scenario

James Harden (BKN)
Harden is among the best scorers and passers to ever play the game of basketball. He brings top-notch value as an offensive player and can turn the tables with his unhinged scoring and assists making. He can make a ton of difference in fantasy lineups.

Jrue Holiday (MIL)
Jrue Holiday’s inclusion last season gave impetus to the Bucks’ title run. He is one of the best perimeter defenders in the league but also an all-around offensive player. He finished among the leaders in steals, and that alone gives him a high fantasy value. Add rebounding, scoring, and stellar playmaking, you get a superb player for a decent credit value.

Joe Harris (BKN).
Harris was among the best three-point shooters in the league last year. He will again benefit from playing alongside Harden and Durant, who will see double teams quite often and can pass from tough angles. The only downside to him as a fantasy pick is that he brings 10-15 points scoring usually and doesn’t rack up rebounds and assists that much.

Khris Middleton (MIL)
Without Khris, Bucks would not have won the championship. He bailed them out on numerous occasions through his scoring abilities and forms a superb Frontcourt pairing with Giannis. He is a great fantasy pick because of his scoring, passing, rebounding, and can also create steals. The Forward is also a great pick because he can erupt for 30-40 points every now and then.

MIL vs BKN DREAM11 Sleeper Picks

Blake Griffin (BKN)
Griffin has become a role player and is not the same player that he was with the Clippers. Despite that, he brings more than decent defense and can score sometimes too. He is not a high-value pick but for his credit score, he can bring in rebounding and chip with some points every now and then. He is an 8-10 points 4 to 6 rebounds type of player.

Brook Lopez (MIL)
Lopez is past his prime but can still be an effective player. He helped Bucks defend the paint last year and posed problems for opposition bigs. Expect him to chip in with 10-15 points, 5-10 rebounds, and 1-2 blocks every now and then, which is a decent production for his credit value.

Patty Mills (BKN)

Mills was a great acquisition by the Nets in the offseason. He brings superb shooting/scoring and can play a big role with Kyrie Irving’s status for the season up in the air. He is a steal with a low credit value and can help balance the Fantasy roster. Expect 9-15 points on a usual basis.

Grayson Allen (MIL)
Allen signed a 2-year contract with the Bucks and the recent arrival can help them stretch the floor. A more than a decent scorer, Allen can cover the starting SG position until Donte gets fit for playing. A great option for low credit value.

Paul Millsap (BKN)

Millsap is no more in his prime but the veteran plays hard at both ends. His credit value is low and he can still reel in around 10 points, 5 rebounds, and a couple of steals or blocks every now then. A highly recommended pick.

Jordan Nwora (MIL)

Nwora has made huge strides this offseason and he can give substantial depth to Bucks. Can bring decent Fantasy value but first let us see what role he gets this season.

Other picks

Bruce Brown
is a decent option for low credit value.

Sandro Mamukalashvilie
 can get some decent minutes, he is a rugged rebounder.

LaMarcus Aldridge
can be a “Dark Horse” type of fantasy pick.
