One team is rebuilding and the other team has an MVP-level player desperate to get a shot at the NBA title. In this game, a young and tottering San Antonio Spurs meet the Luka Doncic-led Dallas Mavericks. More about SAS vs DAL Dream11 such as injury report, stats, and projected fantasy points will be given here.
Spurs are struggling at the start of the season but don’t let the record mislead you. The team is feisty and has given trouble to multiple squads so far. With youngsters like Murray, Keldon Johnson, Walker, Vassell, Poeltl, the team is in rebuilding territory. White gives great support as a facilitator while Diop has brought defensive energy. You can expect a 25-35 win season from the Greg Popovich-led team.
Mavericks don’t have the depth to compete in the Western Conference despite having a marquee showman like Luka Doncic. The team lost to Heat 125-110 and it showed that in a shootout type of game, the team stands a small chance. Surely, the team needs more support from scorers like Hardaway and Brunson but the inside scoring is suspect and the lack of any power players makes it tough to get second-chance points.

*last game stats*
Luka Doncic (DAL)
Doncic provides most of whatever offense the Mavs could muster on a regular basis. He is on a tear once again but for how long can he carry the load alone mostly? In the star-studded Western Conference, isn’t he short on help?
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 59-77
PPG: 24.0 RPG: 7.6 APG: 7.1
Murray can score, pass the ball, can pull down rebounds, and rack up steals. He is the definition of an all-around player and with DeRozan gone from the team, sees the ball a lot more in his hands. What can he build with this young and fighting Spurs team?
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 47-60
PPG: 17.6 APG: 8.4 RPG: 7.6 SPG: 2.0
Tim Hardaway (DAL)
Hardaway is a superb isolation player who can put it in the hoop. However, he has shown some inconsistencies this season. The Mavs will need Tim to get close to 20 points as much as possible while also being efficient from the floor. Can he do that?
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 21-31
PPG: 13.7 RPG: 3.0 SPG: 1.0
Jakob is on the verge of having a breakout season and he has surely begun strongly. Poeltl can provide reliable inside scoring and has also come big on boards. Can Jakob turn around his career this season?
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 39-52
PPG: 13.9 RPG: 7.9 BPG: 1.1
Jalen Brunson (DAL)
The guard is coming off a 10/13 night in his first start this season. Jalen is also well-adept at passing the ball but there is a problem. He can score 20 in one and then get limited to 6-10 in the next. Will he thrive if the starting slot is given to him more often?
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 28-37
PPG: 12.7 RPG: 5.2 APG: 4.3
Derrick White (SAS)
Derrick is both a terrific scorer and a passer. He will see an increased role for the rebuilding Spurs and can carve out a substantial season. Will White be a big role player in the NBA for years to come?
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 23-34
PPG: 13.1 APG: 6.3 SPG: 1.3 BPG: 1.0
Dorian Finney-Smith (DAL)
Dorian is the defensive anchor for the Dallas team, a team that does need the defense to step up with the lack of consistent scoring. He can also chip in with scoring every now and then but is not assertive at that end.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 17-24
PPG: 8.1 RPG: 6.1 SPG: 1.3
In his third season now, Keldon is entering a big year. He has some excellent moves on the offensive end but his rebounding and defense are both work-in-progress. Can Keldon reach towards the 20 PPG mark as the long season inches forward?
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 23-30
PPG: 14.9 RPG: 5.3 SPG: 1.1
Dwight Powell (DAL)
Powell has been decent at providing some production at the thin front-line of the Mavericks. He does play hard but he MAY BE more suited for a bench role long-term in this league.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 17-25
PPG: 8.2 RPG: 4.4 SPG: 1.0
Devin is a guard with shoot-first mentality. He can drive to the hoop while he also has a decent perimeter game. Vassell has entered just his second year in the league and he is still figuring out the intensity of the NBA.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 25-36
PPG: 10.6 RPG: 4.6 SPG: 1.4
Reggie Bullock (DAL)
Bullock shot three triples in the last game. And as a role player, he can hit a couple of shots or more every game.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 13-19

Lonnie Walker (SAS) chipped in with 10 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists, in the last game.
