Indiana Fever Forwards

Forwards against Washington tend to be death and this is a three game slate. Candace Dupree is cheap enough and the game is at home. You could take a shot in a GPP.

Indiana Fever Guards

I am not big on anyone here but Kelsey Mitchell is inexpensive enough and playing at home. You can play her and hope she gets hot.

Washington Mystics Forwards

Elena Delle Donne is back for this game and it is now an extremely crowded frontcourt. EDD is a nice play as nobody on Indiana can stop her. Though I worry they limit her minutes coming off a concussion. It’s hard to see anyone else here getting enough usage or minutes to be relevant.

Washington Mystic Guards

Again with EDD back it’s hard to like anyone, though Indiana is a cake matchup. Natasha Cloud is way too cheap on both sites. I like her at that price. Cloud has been in a shooting slump but she can always turn it around.

Atlanta Dream Guards

Tiffany Hayes is questionable for this game. If she were to miss that would be a massive bump to Alex Bentley and Renee Montgomery, who our both too cheap on FanDuel. If Hayes misses you can play them together. It’s not a great matchup so if Hayes were to play that would downgrade both of them. Additionally, if Hayes misses Maite Cazola would be the strongest value play on the slate.

Atlanta Dream Forwards

If you trust the coach and the minutes Jessica Breland and Elziabeth Williams are both underpriced if they get thirty minutes. With Hayes out they would see extra offensive duty and usage.

Connecticut Sun Guards

Courtney Williams is an interesting GPP play on this slate. She got 29 minutes last game. Yes she has been awful lately but no one will play her, mainly due to the fact Jasmine Thomas is on fire and still underpriced on FanDuel. If you’re looking for a value play Shenna Stricklens minutes have stabilized. I hate recommending her but she seems safe.

Connecticut Sun Forwards

Jonquel Jones is at home versus the Dream. The matchup is as good as it gets. She is the highest priced player but also has the highest ceiling on the slate. Alyssa Thomas is a viable pivot since Jones will be massively owned and foul trouble is always a risk.

Seattle Storm Guards

Jewel Lloyd is questionable. If she were to play I would have little interest in the Seattle back court. If she doesn’t play Jordin Canada is fine in a GPP.

Seattle Storm Forwards

Mercedes Russell and Alysha Clark are strong value plays on slates devoid of them. They will need their size in this matchup. I don’t think Crystal Langhorne is that crazy of a shot in the dark here. They will need her size to matchup with the Vegas frontline. Natasha Howard just put up 50 fantasy points on the road versus Minnesota so there is no reason to bet against her here even in a tough matchup.

Las Vegas Guards

Kelsey Plum is my personal succubus. She is too cheap but got benched last game for Sydney Colson. Colson is interesting in GPPs since she is so cheap. I will be playing Plum, but that is what I do. Kayla McBride is probably the spend up guard on the slate but I do not feel it’s really a slate to do that.

Las Vegas Forwards

Elizabeth Cambage and Asa Wilson are both too cheap on DraftKings. I kind of like the idea of stacking them on there. Of the two I prefer Cambage, despite the increase in price.

Cash Core: Jones, Stricklen, Cloud, J Thomas, Monty, Bently, Cambage, Russell

GPP: Wilson, Plum, McBride Russell EDD Canada
