NYK vs BOS Dream11 Prediction, Fantasy Basketball Tips, Starting Five, Team Details, 21 October


The 2021-22 NBA season is in its budding stages and the star-studded league’s each game has an excitement of its own. In their season openers, the New York Knicks host the Boston Celtics and a battle of two of the oldest Franchises. More about NYK vs BOS Dream11 will be given below.

NYK vs BOS Dream11 Prediction

New York Knicks made some roster changes, bolstering guard positions with acquisitions of Walker and Fournier. In terms of fantasy value, there is no doubt that Julius Randle holds the key with his points, rebounds, and assists. Meanwhile, the new arrivals in Walker and Fournier can also explode for a bunch of points. Mitchell Robinson is playing after a long time but has a high value due to his rebounding and blocks. Can RJ Barrett develop into a substantial fantasy option down the line?

For Fantasy lovers, keep an eye on Jayson Tatum, he is the ace of the Boston Celtics. Boston’s guard Dennis Schroeder turned out to be a more than decent fantasy player last season for his points, assists and steals on a meaningful credit value. Meanwhile, Marcus Smart was among the valuable players due to his penchant for points, rebounds, assists, and steals. Enes Kanter is a steal at the Center position for his low credit value and he can chip in with consistent points and rebounds.

NYK vs BOS Top Picks

Julius Randle (NYK)
Julius comes into the season after a stellar all-star campaign. His averages of 24 PPG, 10.2 RPG, and 6.0 APG last season echo of his value as a fantasy player. If Randle continues such production is a “don’t miss me” type of player in fantasy lineups.

Jayson Tatum (BOS)
Knock for his superb isolation game, Tatum turned heads through his scoring last season. The averages of 26.4 PPG and 7.4 last season reflect his talent at the Forward position. Those averages also indicate he is a top-class pick in the Fantasy lineup. He can be selected in the Dream 11 NBA Fantasy scenario.

Kemba Walker (BOS)
Walker played for Celtics last season and had up-and-down performances. Still, the guard managed to average around 19 PPG and 4.9 RPG along with 1 steal per game. Walker can bring value as a fantasy pick and can explode for huge nights even now.

Marcus Smart (BPS)

Smart inked a big contract with the Celtics this season. The guard earns his keep through hustle on the defensive end and more than decent scoring, playmaking, and rebounding. He averaged around 13 PPG and dished close to 6 APG, while notching up 1.5 SPG last season.

Mitchell Robinson (NYK)
Before his injury last season, Mitchell was one of the best paint defenders in the leagues and was getting a ton of blocks. The Center has a rugged disposition and can have a huge impact as a defender and rebounder. The big averaged 8.3 PPG, 8.1 RPG, 1.5 BPG, and 1.1 SPG last season.

Dennis Schroeder (BOS)
Dennis is a dependable scorer and a capable ball-handler at the guard spot. He carried the Lakers to a decent record last season and had some huge games. The PG averaged 15.4 PPG, 5.8 APG, 3.5 RPG, and 1.1 SPG last season. Can we expect more of the same from the German?

Evan Fournier (NYK)
Fournier is in his third team in less than a year. The guard was used by Magic as the major perimeter option but relenting to a third or fourth option last year affected his production. He saw his last season’s average dip from 19.7 PPG to 13.0 PPG once he joined the Celtics. The guard will again be in a third/fourth option role, will he adapt well?

Enes Kanter (BOS)
If Kanter were a better defender, he would play around 30 minutes because he sure is a hell of a dominant rebounder and scorer. Nonetheless, the Center looks like a bargain for the low-credit value. He averaged 11.2 PPG and 10.0 RPG with the Trailblazers last season.

RJ Barrett (NYK)

The youngster has already shown that he can become one of the more reliable players in the league. He put on a clinic last season, averaging 17.6 PPG and 5.8 RPG.

Robert Williams III (BOS)
Williams had a strong 2020-21 season. He is a talented Center who can play top-notch defense. Robert averaged 8.0 PPG, 6.9 RPG, and 1.8 BPG. Do keep an eye of those valuable block numbers.

Derrick Rose (NYK)

Rose helped the Knicks to make a decent run last season. The former MVP turned out to be among the best bench players last season. He averaged 14.9 PPG and 4.2 APG last season.

Josh Richardson (BOS)

Richardson wouldn’t have liked the type of 2020-21 season he had with Dallas. Still, the guard managed 12.1 PPG and 3.3 RPG. He is a decent pick considering his not-so-high pick value.

Other picks

Obi Toppin (NYK)
can have an impact off the bench. Can give balance to fantasy lineups.

Payton Pritchard (BOS) comes in after a decent rookie season.

Taj Gibson (NYK)is an “under-the-radar” type of fantasy pick. Keep an eye on him.
