The NBA 2021-22 Regular Season is in sprouting mode, but we will of course see stellar athletes right off the bat. In this match, last season’s finalists Phoenix Suns battle it out versus a sturdy Nuggets outfit. More about PHX vs DEN Dream11 will be given below.

PHX vs DEN Dream11 Prediction

Suns will look for a title after reaching the finals last season. The team didn’t make any major changes in the off-season and returned with the same core. In terms of fantasy value, Deandre Ayton has been a fan favorite for his high production in a manageable credit value. Paul holds a lot of significance for his scoring, assists, and steals. While Booker is the designated scorer, someone Jae Crowder also provides great value for his credit score.

Denver Nuggets has the ultimate fantasy dream player in Nikola Jokic. The reigning MVP lit up the league in every facet of the game and had a dominating season. Michael Porter Jr. is also becoming a golden fantasy pick for his superb scoring and rebounding abilities. While someone like Will Barton and Aaron Gordon can balance out the lineups through their reasonable contributions every now and then. In terms of the season goal, Nuggets will eagerly wait for Jamal Murray to get fit and aim for a deep postseason run with the reigning MVP at the helm.

PHX vs DEN Top Picks

Nikola Jokic (DEN)
Nikola is one of the best all-around bigs to play in the league. He is the reigning MVP and has looked imposing for every defender. Nikola can easily chip in with 25-35 points, 10-15 rebounds, 5-10 assists, on a regular basis. He is indeed a valuable player in a fantasy lineup.

Chris Paul (PHX)
CP3 has been one of the most talented guards in the league for more than a decade. The eagle-eyed PG is an incredible fantasy option for his ability to hand over assists and has the skills to set up 15-20 points every now and then.

Michael Porter Jr. (DEN)
Michael Porter Jr. had a breakout 2020-21 NBA season. His scoring has skyrocketed and matured while he is also an electric rebounder. He can become an elite fantasy pick down the line.

DeAndre Ayton (PHX)
Deandre remained one of the most consistent bigs last season. His ability to score in the paint, rebound the ball, and also play defense, makes him the reason for the Suns’ success. In terms of fantasy value, expect 15-20 points, 10-15 rebounds, and 1-2 block shots regularly from the Center.

Will Barton (DEN)
Will Barton is a two-way guard who is one of the players who quietly do the job for the team. In terms of fantasy expectations, the guard can be sought for 10-15 points, 4-5 rebounds, and 1-2 steals consistently. Highly recommended pick.

Devin Booker (PHX)
Booker is one of the most elite scorers in the NBA right now. The guard enabled his team to make the Finals last season and keeps on improving other aspects of his game. Expect 25-35 points regularly, along with 4-6 assists, and 3-6 rebounds.


Aaron Gordon (DEN)

Acquired in the post-mid-season trade last season, Gordon has given a lot of speed and athleticism to the Nuggets. One can expect Gordon to reel in 10-15 points and 5-8 rebounds regularly.

Mikal Bridges (PHX)
Bridges is a dynamic two-way forward who is a key figure in this team. You can expect him to turn tables again this season. Expect 12-16 points, 4-7 rebounds, and 1-2 blocks or steals on a consistent basis.

P.J. Dozier (DEN)
P.J. is a serviceable defender and does a great job at the perimeter. Can be a decent pick to balance the
lineup.

Jae Crowder(PHX)
Crowder is a knockdown three-point shooter and a solid defender. A great balancer in the lineup who can give 10-15 points and 4-6 rebounds regularly.

OTHER MAJOR PICKS

Bones Hyland (DEN) The rookie can earn some minutes this season.

JaVale McGree (PHX) can provide immense shot-blocking and decent 6-8 PPG and 5-7 RPG.
