    Default Euroleague Fantasy Challenge 2017/18

    You are a little bit lazy this year, I've expected this thread much earlier, no doubt that my friends Radallo, Beno and Integral will have plenty of good ideas.

    Let's start will Zalgiris, who will be their leaders in the upcoming season?

    Zalgiris key player will be Jankunas, no doubt IMO. He is resting from NT this summer, so should be fresh and be able to keep last season's shape. Then it's hard to say, first of all cause we have deep and quite even roster and then not really know real strenght of all newcomers, most are new to EL, so only friendlies and LKL will show some of their capabilities before EL start

    So, Zalgiris transfers looks like that:
    OUT- Westermann, Lekavicius, Lima, Motum, Seibutis, Javtokas(retired).
    IN- Micic, Bost, Davies, White, Toupane, Sajus.

    I wrote it in a pattern that player in a same spot replaced previous one. We got player's that have athleticism, that we lacked so much in previous season. There are no great names, as always But Saras strategy is to buy young players, that want to prove something, he buys creators, hard workers. Leaders will be our captain Jankunas, Toupane, then there will be scoring threats as Pangos, Bost, Davies. I hope that Micic improved his shooting and will be our main brain on court, like Saras says. White and Ulanovas should be our energetic bombs of the bench that rebounds, runs and defends with quality. You will see a very different Zalgiris with much better defense, better shooting and overall better team. More detailed review would be on Zalgiris thread.

    Eagerly waiting for season to start So far these "bold" names looks promising due to their old performances but ofc first 2 or 3 weeks will show the real potential. Lots of PIR monsters from previous years, cant wait, really

    I'm totally afraid of not making 3 wins in a row. I hope you will give me some ideas. I have a feeling Nunnally can be a dark horse.

    Did you won it last year too? I remember that you finished 1st in 15/16 season as I had two teams in 3th and 6th places. Last year I gave up after some weeks. Can't find motiavation to fight only for Top 200 places So I dedicated my talents to local managers and won Lithuanian leahue polo shirt and hoodie (I know, the awards here ar s*it ). If you are interested, you can participate in Eurobasket manager here: http://www.krepsinis.net/menedzeris. But you need to create account in that site first. Although there is no English language in that site if I'm right. But I think it's the only manager for Eurobasket.

    About Zalgiris,

    I will write my opinion after some LKL games, but all I can say that Jankunas could have another good year. Seems like he reached his prime last year beeing 32 yo. Ulanovas role should be reduced next year. He was perfect manager player, his PIR is not related with scoring as he's good rebounder and even gets solid number of assists as playing for SF. Also Pangos could explode like Motum last season. 2nd year for him should be easier. But it's too yearly to make more predictions

    O'Neale signed with Jazz, while Hartenstein will be loaned. Axel Toupane and Martynas Sajus replaced them.

    Do you know of the collaboration between DraftKings and Euroleague fantasy?

    Nothing more than this. I enjoy Draftkings. Like it better than FanDuel. Hopefully they will keep the season long competition (with a makeover as the article noted plus week to week competitions more like what they do with the NBA. Honestly, hopefully this change will give players like me more of a chance who have not really finished to high in the year long competition.

    Does this mean we will have to pay to play this year?

    They do have free contests as well. I think it depends if Euroleague is actually paying them to do the year long contest. If not probably so.

    What prizes are you talking about? It's quite obvious that euroleague sold fantasy to Draftkings where the game will be very different (the announcement states it clearly) and no-one will be able to play for free the new euroleague fantasy-like game. Money buys it all unfortunatelly my friend...
