EuroLeague Fantasy week 29 starts Thursday and managers should look into several possibilities to improve their teams. With seven games on Thursday, we recommend setting your sights in accumulating most of your points on the first day of round 29.
Without further ado, here are three EuroLeague Fantasy tips ahead of round 29
Looking into the potential value of Monaco’s backcourt
Mike James has temporarily been suspended ahead of Monaco’s Thursday matchup versus Virtus Bologna. With that said, we expect Jordan Loyd and Elie Okobo to take the center stage as they will have to produce results on offense. Ekobo had 18 points vs. Baskonia in the last round and he earned 18.7 EuroLeague Fantasy points. At 12.00 credits, Okobo might be a lucrative option, but his role will be huge for the Monegasques, at least for round 29.
Another lucrative option (12.4 CR) for the EuroLeague Fantasy managers could be Jordan Loyd, who has been excellent in the last three rounds. The scoring guard is averaging 22.0 fantasy points during that span for AS Monaco.
Taking advantage of Milan’s form
Milan entered the playoff race in the last few weeks as the Italian side has been on a hot run putting together six consecutive wins in the last six rounds. If you want to find value in Milan’s form, I recommend adding Kevin Pangos in a starting or sixth man role. The Canadian guard is a relatively cheap option at 9.2 credits, while Milan will play without Devon Hall and Shavon Shields against Real Madrid.
Ettore Messina’s team will likely find it hard to keep its winning streak going against the Whites,but Pangos has the ability to make a difference regardless. In the last two games, he scored more than 10 points, while he registered a total of eight assists for an average of 18.1 EuroLeague Fantasy points.
Shaquille McKissic form in red-hot Olympiacos
Olympiacos is close in to clinching a playoff place again this season, but they will have to fight without Kostas Sloukas in round 29. The Reds have been on excellent form and they are leading the EuroLeague standings heading into the five final weeks of the regular season.
Many players stepped up during their journey, but we will focus on guard/forward Shaquille McKissic, who has been great in the last few rounds. The explosive guard scored in double-digits in three of the last four games providing a spark coming off the bench. McKissic will likely be an important part of the rotation considering that he’s in excellent form.
In the last two games, the guard out of Arizona State is averaging 15.5 points per and has accumulated an average of 17.6 EuroLeague Fantasy points. At 8.1 credits, McKissic could be a nice addition to your EuroLeague Fantasy team for round 29.
