Hey guys and gals this is getting out later than expected but life happens but here goes.
As usual these recommendations are with FanDuel pricing in mind.
WAS @ CON
SEA @ IND
PHO @ CHI
Katie Lou Samuelson- OUT
WAS @ CON
These teams have played already this season but Elena Delle Donne was out. Tonight she is very much available and appears to be a near lock at her price. Emma Meeseman is gone for Eurobasket so we should see nice run for LaToya Sanders. She played well last year in Meeseman’s absence.
On the Sun side of things Jonquel Jones is obviously one of the best plays on the board tonight. However her price reflects it. If you can quite get there Alyssa Thomas has been very good as of late and is quite a bit cheaper.
Other players to consider: Natasha Cloud, Tiana Hawkins, Kristi Tolliver, Courtney Williams
SEA @ IND
This game is very interesting both teams have been playing better than expectations. The Fever have just been bad the past few seasons. However this year veteran Candice Dupree has been very good for the most part. I never roster her but tonight looks to be a good spot for her. She’s a bit more expensive than I would like but still a good play. People are likely going to chance the last performance of rookie Kennedy Burke at min salary. The problem is the box score doesn’t indicate how lopsided the last game was. That might have contributed more to the extended run than anything else, but if you want to take a shot by all means. Not sure if I will land there, but I get it.
On the Seattle side it’s simple Natasha Howard. She has tremendous usage. She’s a great rebounder and also provides steals and blocks to go with her scoring. Jordin Canada has been playing well in the absence of Sue Bird. However the price on Jewel Loyd is very appealing.
Other players to consider: Kelsey Mitchell, Natalie Achonwa, Alysha Clark, Mercedes Russell

This game appears to be a smash spot for both DeWanna Bonner and Brittany Griner. I can’t identify anyone on the Sky that can stop either of these women. The issue is the price. You can likely only afford one of them. The blocks get you more points on FanDuel so maybe take Griner on that site but either will due. Leilani Mitchell is going to be the chalk. She’s too cheap for the minutes she’s playing. She’s coming off a good game but she could just as easily get you single digits tonight. Price is too hard to pass though.
For the Sky the obvious plays are Diamond Deshields and Courtney Vandersloot. Allie Quigley has been horrendous. She however has 35 point upside and will be virtually unowned tonight. She’s definitely a contrarian play that could win you that 5K. Stefanie Dolson is cheap but she’s also been terrible and has Brittany Griner to deal with. Play at your own risk if you need some savings.
