The NBA brings to its fans some of the most mouth-watering battles that take place in basketball. In this game, a rebuilding San Antonio Spurs counter the threat of the reigning champions Milwaukee bucks. More about SAS vs MIL Dream11 will be given below.
Spurs lost to the Nuggets in the last game, but that is understandable since the team is in rebuilding mode. The squad of Murray, White, Johnson, Poelt, McDermott, Walker, Vassell contains a lot of youth. The coach has not given many minutes to veteran all-around player Thaddeus Young, spelling more time for the youth. It will not be a surprise if the Spurs finish around 25-30 wins this season.
Bucks suffered a 42-points loss to the Heat in the last game. But panic not, the team missed its ace perimeter defender in Holiday and this kind of loss will not be the trend for the reigning champions. Antetokounmpo and Middleton produce a lot of points, rebounds, assists, steals, etc., and have high fantasy value. Allen, Nwora, and Connaughton present a decent number of fantasy points for low credit value and can balance fantasy lineups.

DeJounte Murray deals in all aspects of the game.
Giannis Antetokounmpo can fill the statsheet in a hurry.
*stats from the last regular-season game for both teams*
Giannis Antetokounmpo (MIL)
Giannis comes into the game after a tough 4/11 shooting night. But that is alright, such nights are regular in the NBA and even the best of players go through them. The reigning Finals MVP will bounce back sooner than later. Despite the last game struggles, he can be selected as a Star/Pro Player in the Dream 11 NBA Fantasy scenario
Expected Fantasy Points Range 54-67
Murray will see the ball more in his hands more than ever after the departure of DeRozan. The Guard is a superb fantasy option because is a triple-double threat and can also get his hands on a ton of steals.
Expected Fantasy Points Range 41-49
Khris Middleton (MIL)
Khris also comes in after a 4/14 shooting night, a tough one indeed. However, Middleton is the type of player who can drop 30-40 points after a cold night too. Bank on Khris’ all-around abilities.
Expected Fantasy Points Range 39-54
Derrick White (SAS)
White can explode this season considering how much leeway and opportunities he will have in a rebuilding squad. He has all the tools to succeed as a scorer and passer in this league and will be a regular contributor if he is healthy.
Expected Fantasy Points Range 37-47
Jrue Holiday (MIL)
Jrue became a huge part of the Bucks’ title run last season because of his two-way ability. The Guard missed the last game and that showed in a weak perimeter defense performance by Milwaukee against the Heat. He is PROBABLE for this game.
Expected Fantasy Points Range 34-44
Will this be a breakout season for young Johnson? The Forward led the Spurs in scoring during the last game. He can average around 20 PPG if things click. The Forward needs to improve his rebounding to become more effective.
Expected Fantasy Points Range 38-46
Grayson Allen (MIL)
Allen has shown promising signs in the first two games for the Bucks. He has scored in double-figures so far and helps Milwaukee stretch the floor through his shooting.
Expected Fantasy Points Range 19-26
Jakob Poletl (SAS)
Poeltl has shown great signs early in the season, coming in with two strong games. The Center can become a 26-30 minutes per game type of player if he sustains the production level.
Expected Fantasy Points Range 25-33
Pat Connaughton (MIL)
Connaughton is a coach’s dream. He brings a lot of energy off the bench or in any role. He is more than a decent offensive player and fights hard on the defensive end.
Expected Fantasy Points Range 17-26
Devin Vassell (SAS)
Vassell can become an integral part of the lineup. He is just a sophomore and has enough time to build his game with a team that is building from the scratch.
Expected Fantasy Points Range 20-26
Jordan Nwora (MIL)
Nwora has improved his game before the season and it has been on display recently. Jordan can eke out 23-28 minutes regularly if he continues to grow like this.
Expected Fantasy Points Range 18-25
Lonnie Walker IV (SAS)
Walker can get more minutes if he shows more growth. Bagged 6 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists, and 1 steal in the last game.
Expected Fantasy Points Range 14-20
Sandro Mamukelashvili (MIL)
Sandro has a lot of rebounding potential. Bagged 12 points, 4 rebounds, 1 assist, in the last game.
Expected Fantasy Points Range 10-15
