Take a look at the best tips in the EuroLeague Fantasy Challenge for both Round 8 and Round 9.
Fantasy tips: Big bargains for two rounds
Here comes the second double-round week in the 2023-24 Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Regular Season. That gives EuroLeague Fantasy Challenge managers a twin opportunity to improve their ranking in the overall standings, challenge for first place in private leagues and, why not, win our weekly prize: a EuroLeague TV subscription for the 2024-25 campaign. We looked for players that are already on their way up and could do even better this week. Here they are:
Moustapha Fall, Olympiacos Piraeus (10.9 credits) – There are two good reasons to choose Fall in this double-round week. First, he has posted career-best numbers in assists in both the EuroLeague and Greek League in the last week. Second, Nikola Milutinov is sidelined in this double-round week, so Fall will see extended playing time.
Marius Grigonis, Panathinaikos Athens (8.3 credits) – Grigonis comes off an excellent game against ALBA, leading Panathinaikos to a road victory with 16 points, 4 rebounds and a PIR of 19. Juancho Hernangomez is sidelined so Grigonis will see extra playing time at small forward, which is also very interesting. All for just 8.3 credits!
Darius Thompson, Anadolu Efes Istanbul (12.3 credits) – Thompson has adjusted to a new situation and started to share the ball the way he did with Baskonia last season. He had 9 assists in the Turkish League this weekend and dished 5 against Zalgiris in EuroLeague action. It is a good time to buy him before his price goes up.
Jordan Loyd, AS Monaco (13.4 credits) – Loyd started the game season in the injured list but has quickly regained his rhythm. He had a good game against ASVEL last week, amassing a PIR of 14, and did even better in the French League, getting 29 points and a PIR of 32 in just 24 minutes. Loyd should only get better and better.
Jabari Parker, FC Barcelona (12.8 credits) – Parker has been extremely solid in the last couple of weeks. In Round 7 against Zvezda, Parker needed just 22 minutes to get 20 points and a PIR of 19. He also played well in the Spanish League: 18 points and a PIR of 20 in less than 24 minutes. He is improving as the season goes on.
