Projected Fantasy Points: 49
Khris will play a huge role in the series and will have to fight against a tough Suns defense. Middleton has been helping the Bucks to win games and has been responsible for the deep run they have made. The Bucks get consistent scoring, rebounding, playmaking, and also stellar defense from the Forward which makes him a superb presence. He can be considered as a candidate for Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA play.
D-Book has had a season of his life and despite flying under the radar for years now, he has finally shown his talent to the world. Devin has received huge help from Booker but he has also played well and captured some wins with Paul having an off-night or being out with an injury. Devin will need to be at his best against the lengthy Bucks and if he can stitch together some heavy scoring performances then the Suns will pass the test.
Paul is the primary ball-handler who sets up his mates for easy buckets. CP-3 can also come up with scoring and he is also a terrific defender which makes him a successful guard. Chris will be matched up against Jrue, a guard who thrives on pretty much a similar skillset. The guard is so adept at taking care of the ball that he is an astounding assist to turnover ratio of 5.5.
Jrue sees the ball a lot in his hands with the responsibility of creating easy opportunities for his teammates. Holiday can also rebound well and put up the defensive pressure on a constant basis. Holiday and CP-3 matchup is surely one of the headlines of the series.
DeAndre Ayton: PPG: 16.2 RPG: 11.8 TPG: 1.3 PFP: 33
Ayton is a throwback player who can score inside, rebound, and also provide a superb interior defense. He has been consistent throughout the Playoffs and will need to stamp his authority against the Bucks.
Brook Lopez: PPG: 13.5 RPG: 6.1 BPG: 1.8 PFP: 26
Brook is a lengthy big man who can score, rebound, and also play superb defense. The veteran big man was highly effective against the young Hawks and can leave an imprint against the Suns too.
Mikal Bridges: PPG: 10.8 RPG: 4.3 SPG: 1.0 PFP: 20
Bridges is a young Forward who is primarily known for his defense but can also chip in with some scoring.
Bobby Portis: PPG: 9.3 RPG: 5.4 PFP: 17
Jae Crowder: PPG: 10.4 RPG: 5.2 PFP: 18
