Week 3 of the Euroleague season and it is also the first double header week.
Unfortunately, the problems due to COVID-19 keep on coming, with Zenit St. Petersburg not travelling to Spain for it’s 2 games and most probably ASVEL will not be able to play the game against Panathinaikos tonight, since they barely have 8 players active.
With the above problems, today’s Euroleague Fantasy Tournament on Fanteam and Stoiximan has only 3 games but still there are enough options for us to take and make ourselves some money!
Micic is the 1st name that caught my eye when i was going through the slate and he is going to be in a lot of my lineups.
Without Larkin, he is the focal point of Anadolu Efes offense, is playing close to 28 minutes per game and averaging 0.91 fantasy points.
The game against Alba is projected to be a high scoring game, the pace is going to be fast since the teams are 3d and 4th in pace, so that makes Micic even more appealing.
The other top option that I will be looking at, is the guy Micic is going to be up against, Peyton Siva.
The Alba Berlin point guard is having a good start so far, averaging 19.8 fantasy points per game and playing close to 22 minutes. Now i would love for those minutes to go up and I am hoping that the game is going to be competitive, since that will mean that Siva is having a good game and he needs to be on the floor.
Add this, to his low price (9.8m) and you can understand why i like him so much.
If you want, you can pivot to Granger, he is a little bit more expensive than Siva but he is projected to have similar points to him.
Other options would be Thomas Walkup and Langston Hall.
The Alba Berlin-Efes game will be the main focus of my builds tonight and at the shooting guard position I would be going with Krunoslav Simon.
Larkin remains out for Efes, so the offensive usage is going to specific players, especially in the perimeter.
Simon is one of them, averaging 0.83 fantasy points per minute but most importantly, 32 minutes per game.
I cannot ignore a player that plays 32 minutes in a 40 minute game.
If you want you can pivot to Rodrigue Beaubois for a cheaper option or play both of them, since they share the floor quite frequently.
My other top option will be Jordan Lloyd.
He had a monster game last time out, scoring 49 fantasy points and , although I do not expect the same production, we are talking about a player that is averaging 1.01 fantasy points in his Euroleague career and is playing close to 28 minutes per game.
Milankis is also an option from the same game.
The position that produces the least points in Euroleague Fantasy (and in European Fantasy Leagues in general, to be honest) is the Small Forward position.
With that in mind, I do not like to pay a lot for a SF, especially on a Euroleague Fantasy tournament like tonight.
You can go with Kalinic, arguably the best SF tonight , Milankis, Hanga, Claver, San Emeterio or Fontecchio.
That’s the pool I am going to rotate from tonight.
Nikola Mirotic is the Euroleague Fantasy GOAT.
You cannot find a steadier player in Fantasy.
He is playing 28 minutes, averaging 1.2 fantasy points per minute.
The game against Valencia is not going to be an easy one but Mirotic is matchup proof at this point. You just need to roster him.
Adrien Moerman, Nigel Hayes and Derrick Williams are worth considering also.
Brandon Davies seems to be leaving last year behind and is starting to play like we knew he could.
Averaging 1 fantasy point per minute and playing close to 23 minutes, makes him my 1st choice for tonight’s slate.
Ben Lammers , started the season well and is having a favorable matchup tonight against Efes , so i will give him a chance.
I will also consider rostering Dubljevic and Lauvergne or, if you want to go cheaper, Tobay and Rubit instead.
That’s all for today
Good luck and have a great Fantasy Day.
