Bogdan Bogdanovic suffered another injury and Luigi Datome is ready to become a worthy replacement for him in scoring. And the choice of Fenerbahce’s Italian forward seems the most appropriate

Keith Langford complicated things in the previous round since, even though he appeared injured up to the last minute, he played in Unics Kazan’s game and in fact did splendidly, having a ranking of 22 against Zalgiris.

The Eurohoops.net team left Langford out, but now it’s time for him to return. Before we go ahead with that, let’s take a look at what the Eurohoops fantasy tool has to say about the most reliable players and the score they are estimated to produce in the next round.

So, the first to go, then, is going to be Bogdan Bogdanovic because of his injury. Aside from him, Sasa Vezenkov is also going to depart from the team, as he’s no longer in form, he’s not shooting enough and is not taking advantage of Doellman’s absence. Lastly, Tyler Honeycutt is definitely going through a slump in his performance. He hasn’t been able to return to good performances against Maccabi, continuing not to shoot enough or boost his stats in all categories, so it’s best he goes.

With 167,6 credits available and the return of the leading scorer and first-ranked Keith Langford (he costs 94,1 credits) to the team, room for two more quality additions is limited.

Langford, though, is going up against the defensively weak Galatasaray, he’s going to monopolize the scoring again and he can definitely come up with another big game.

So, the move that is going to “set us free” is the inexpensive option of Nikola Milutinov. Olympiacos’s Serbian center will be called upon to play in his home country against Crvena Zvezda and Ognjen Kuzmic. He’s now firmly the second big man in Olympiacos in terms of playing time and in most games in which he comes up against opponents that are his size, he takes on many shots and grabs a lot of rebounds. He can make the difference, costing only 22,8 credits.

The last choice is going to be Luigi Datome, as he is the player that will be taking on many attempts in Fenerbahce’s offensive game since Bogdan Bogdanovic is out.

The Italian forward costs only 40,6 credits and it’s better to invest in him and have 10,1 credits left, rather than choose someone more expensive with questionable results.

Enjoy fantasy!
