MIL vs NOP Dream11 Team Prediction NBA Projections, Fantasy Basketball Picks for Bucks vs Pelicans 26 February


Bucks vs Pelicans Fantasy NBA: The Milwaukee Bucks will enter the game after defeating the Minnesota Timberwolves led by a 37 points outing by Giannis Antetokounmpo. Meanwhile, the New Orleans Pelicans will visit Milwaukee after beating the Pistons behind a 32 points outburst by Zion Williamson. More details about MIL vs NOP Dream11 fixture will be given here.

Bucks’ season: Milwaukee is 3rd in the NBA standings for the Eastern Conference but have suffered a little without Jrue Holiday who is their two-way player at the PG spot. It will be interesting to see how they play once Holiday is healthy and if he continues to play as he did before being out.

Pelicans’ season: Pels have two wonderful forwards in Ingram and Williamson, and despite having a tough season, they will be pleased to witness the development of their marquee players. This duo has helped the Pelicans to secure multiple wins, and they have been a team to be reckoned with when their guards chip in.

MIL vs NOP Dream11 NBA Scores, Fantasy Picks:

Giannis Antetokounmpo
PPG: 28.6
RPG: 11.8
APG: 6.0
SPG: 1.3
BPG: 1.3
TPG: 3.7
PFP: 49(Projected Fantasy Points)
The Greek Freak is the reigning MVP and it is not surprising that he is posting such incredible numbers. He is the engine who fuels the Bucks and he provides them with elite statline regularly. Giannis has scored 35+ points in the last two games and his team has emerged victorious both times. He is a terrific option as the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA scenario.

Zion Williamson
PPG: 25.3
RPG: 6.8
TPG: 2.3
PFP: 43
Zion’s size and athleticism enable him to terrorize his opponents and he is a nightmare to defend. He is dominating teams in only his second year and he can be a future MVP if he develops in the current trajectory. He has scored 30+ points in the 3 of the last 5 games.

Brandon Ingram
PPG: 24.0
RPG: 5.3
APG: 4.8
TPG: 2.4
PFP: 40
Ingram is a wiry player who has a high IQ and can perform multiple roles. BI has helped the Pelicans to become a more fighting squad and his current form indicates that he is one of the most promising players in the league.

Khris Middleton
PPG: 20.3
RPG: 6.1
APG: 5.7
SPG: 1.2
PFP: 40
Khris has become an amazing playmaker, and he is already a terrific scorer and rebounder. He has shot well from the field and he is a coach’s dream as he is a team-oriented player. He and Giannis form one of the most mature Forward duos in the league.

MIL vs NOP Dream11 Sleeper Picks

Lonzo Ball: PPG: 14.3   APG: 5.1   RPG: 4.3  SPG: 1.4 PFP: 29
Despite the murmurs of the trade, Lonzo has kept his head in the game and has put up some decent performances recently. He may be traded before the deadline but he certainly makes a difference at the Guard position.

Brook Lopez: PPG: 10.7   RPG: 5.1  BPG: 1.3   PFP: 20
Lopez is not the same scorer as he was a few years ago but he is still a factor for the Bucks as he plays great team defense and also chips in with a few points every now and then.

Steven Adams: PPG: 8.3    RPG: 9.1    SPG: 1.0 PFP: 20
Adams provides great rebounding at the Center position and although he is not the most threatening scorer, he does have some nights when he can become a decent option on offense.

Donte Divincenzo: PPG: 10.1   RPG: 4.5    SPG: 1.1 PFP: 20
Bryn Forbes: PPG: 10.0  PFP: 15
Eric Bledsoe: PPG: 12.4    RPG: 3.5    APG: 3.4    PFP: 18

MIL vs NOP Dream11 Team Prediction

PG: Bryn Forbes
SG: Donte Divincenzo, D.J. Augustin
SF: Brandon Ingram
PF: Pat Connaughton, Giannis Antetokounmpo(SP), Zion Williamson(PP)
C:    Willy Hernangomez
