So we have a two game slate today filled with not a lot of options and one huge injury. Both these games contain some blow out risk as well.
Ahh, Sami Whitcomb day. With Jordin Canada down with an injury she will be the one most likely to get the first shot at replacing her. This is not a slam dunk for her,though, as the matchup is tough vs. the Connecticut Sun. Also she is for the most part just a three point shooter. Defensive stats and assists tend not be her thing. In cash, yes you play her, but she is not a must in GPPs.
She only got eight minutes last game and that is why this is strictly a GPP play. But, she should in theory be in line for more minutes. She is a far better defensive player than Whitcombe and Jewell Lloyd is capable of playing the point. She is an interesting GPP target who might come in under 10% too.
Will we ever get second half minutes from big Liz? Vegas either blows people out or gets blown out that last couple of games. She is way too cheap for her upside on this slate. I know Minnesota is good defensively. Does not matter. I want Big Liz.
It’s pretty simple here. Seattle is the worst defensive team on the slate and Jones is the best player on the Sun. With the value available you should play the highest projected scorer.
Sylvia Fowles, Alyssa Thomas, Natasha Howard, Asa Wilson
I have a feeling nobody is going to play these four and on two-game slates where you have four studs with this potential and possibly less than 10% owned, I have some interest. I think I would order them Wilson > Howard > Fowles > Thomas.
As many of you know I have a fondness for Mrs. Plum. She is going to be chalky after her forty point explosion on Friday too. I am of the belief that she will eventually be one of the higher priced guards. All that being said we are talking about a shooting dependant guard, who gets benched indiscriminately by her head coach on a team with four players all demanding the ball. I am warm to the idea of fading her is my point.
You attack Minnesota with guards. Anyone that plays Vegas is going to play Plum or Liz Cambage. McBride will be 5-10% on a two game slate where she has forty point upside.
Jasmine Thomas, Courtney Williams
Without Canada, the Seattle back court defense just took a hit. I prefer the discount to Jasmine on DraftKing while partial to Williams on FanDuel (tout Hedge).
Still too cheap for a forward getting thirty minutes a night.
Alysha Clark, Damiris Dantas
They are both too cheap on FanDuel. I prefer Clark over Mercedes Russell on Fanduel. On DraftKings they are both too expensive.
Kareem Christmas Kelly
She is 3.7 on FanDuel and got twenty minutes last game. If she is fully recovered from her knee injury and they give her 25 minutes she can smash that number. I like her a lot especially on FanDuel. I hope people are not on her.
Cash Core: Clark (FD) Russell (FD, DK) Whitcombe, Jones, Cambage
GPP: Xmas, Kelly, Dantas, Jasmine Thomas, Kayla McBride, Asa Wilson (same logic as McBride)
