Midweek adjustments in our EuroLeague Fantasy squad include red-hot Kendrick Nunn

At the bottom end of the two-game week of the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Regular Season, we present EuroLeague Fantasy options from Greek eternal rivals Panathinaikos Aktor and Olympiacos.

At the top of the week, we were correct in suggesting Moustapha Fall as an addition. The French center of Olympiacos piled up 30.8 Fantasy points.

We earned ten points from Giorgos Bartzokas as our head coach. If the Reds held on to a double-digit lead over the last five minutes of the fourth quarter against EA7 Emporio Armani Milan, then our Round 18 tally would be far greater.

It is what it is. On to Round 19, Kendrick Nunn is our choice. Coming off brilliant showings, his current form leads Panathinaikos and highlights the EuroLeague in general.

Nunn went over 13 points in seven of the last eight games, including a career-high 25 points against Baskonia in Vitoria-Gasteiz on Wednesday. A performance index rating over 11 described his efforts in six of the last eight continental contests.

He is far from an ideal Fantasy option with most of his points stemming from scoring. But with his price set at an affordable range of 11.0 units, he can be a solid addition, considering recent performances.

Real Madrid’s Argentine point guard Facundo Campazzo is no longer our captain. Alec Peters is his replacement.

We were screaming to readers to pick up Peters from the start of the season at 8.0 units. Those initially following or joining later before his price ballooned to 13.7 units can also follow us in naming him as captain. Averaging a PIR of 18.2 with only two single-digit displays, he remains a solid addition.
