Losing steam, Franklin Bulls are off the boil at the moment. After torching their way to the echelons of the points tally, the team is now in uncharted vicinity with the club given way to slump into fourth spot with three defeats in its last five ties.

MWJ Vs FKB Dream11 Picks
Despite not being in the best of form the last time around, Jackson Stubbins managed to accumulate the 3 points, 5 assists and 2 rebounds the last time around. The versatile performance was a testament to the sprawling skill set he has embedded in his kitty, one which has seen him emerge as a mainstay of Franklin Bulls’ gameplan.
Nick Fee makes an advent into our framework from Jets with the player offering sublime value. At a measly 5.5 credits, the point guard is someone whose scrimmages on the court can easily translate into a slew of layups for the club.
Up against a waning and wavering Bulls defence, Jayden Bezzant is going to love his time out in the middle. The shooting guard has quashed sides with his ability to open up the zone and shoot triples, an expertise which saw him pile on the 12 points in the bygone affair.
Back after missing out on a string of outings, Hyrum Harris ended up fitting in as the last piece of puzzle in their electric Jets side. The small forward delivered one of the most sublime showings in this instalment of the league, a game winning triple-double of 24-10-10 which makes him a must have pick for the imminent tie.
Shooting 19 points only a couple of days back, Nelson Kirksey made full use of his ability to come out with points inside the paint to dismantle his opposition. The offhanded shots and reverse scoops he possesses have left defenders in a quandary, ones which make him the first of three names in this ambit.
He finds company in the enigmatic Ashton McQueen who came up with 12 points in the same contest while the opposition will feature the selection of Sam Timmins. If there’s anyone capable of steadying his side’s sinking ship its him with the player charting his way through rough waters with a 7 point and 5 rebound showing the last time around.
He’s going to find company in the wordclass skillset of Dominique Kelman-Potto, a centre who has grown in nature to become such a revered name owing to the alleyoops and spin and slams he has, ones which saw him come up with 26 points the last time around.
His stunning triple-triple from the previous affair sees us make Harris our star player while Bezzant is the vice-captain.
