The Milwaukee Bucks 2023-2024 season is right around the corner and so is fantasy basketball season. Fantasy basketball is not as talked about as fantasy football, but there are plenty of people who are still interested in it. Milwaukee will have a few players on their roster this season that will be worth drafting.
Who are some of the players on the Bucks you should try and draft and some maybe you should stay away from this season?
Milwaukee Bucks Giannis Antetokounmpo Is Going To Be a Top 5 to Top 10 Pick in NBA Fantasy Drafts
Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo is going to taken in the top five to top 10 in fantasy basketball drafts this season once again on any platform. He is one of the best players in the NBA at putting up numbers on a night-to-night basis.
Antetokounmpo can always put up 30 points and 15 rebounds on any given day during the course of an 82-game regular season. A season ago for the Milwaukee Bucks, he averaged 31.1 PPG, 11.8 RPG, 5.7 RPG, 0.8 BPG, and 0.8 SPG in 63 games played.
Other than Giannis Antetokounmpo, a couple of players that will most likely go ahead of him in NBA Fantasy Drafts will be Nikola Jokic of the Denver Nuggets and Luka Doncic of the Dallas Mavericks.
Jrue Holiday Is a Good Point Guard To Have in the Later Rounds
There are so many very good point guards in the NBA. Kyrie Irving of the Dallas Mavericks and Jalen Brunson of the New York Knicks are two of them for example and should be taken ahead of Jrue Holiday of the Milwaukee Bucks in fantasy drafts. Holiday is good for a fifth or sixth-round selection, maybe even later if you need a point guard or another guard in general.
He played in 67 games last season. Holiday averaged 19.3 PPG, 5.1 RPG, 7.4 APG, 0.4 BPG, and 1.2 SPG. He will average a similar number this season for the Bucks.
Brook Lopez Is an Underrated Center For Fantasy Basketball
Center isn’t the deepest position in fantasy basketball. Outside of Joel Embiid of the Philadelphia 76ers, Nikola Jokic, and DeAndre Ayton of the Phoenix Suns, there isn’t much to go around at the position. Beggers can’t be choosers and Brook Lopez is a solid center to have for fantasy basketball.
He was always reliable last season for the Milwaukee Bucks. Lopez played in 78 games and averaged 15.9 PPG, 6.7 RPG, 1.3 APG, 2.5 BPG, and 0.5 SPG. The blocks category is what will separate him from a lot of centers in fantasy basketball.
Lastly, stay away from Khris Middleton because of injury history and another underrated fantasy basketball player for the Milwaukee Bucks is Bobby Portis Jr.
