WNBA Playoff Slate

We have a two game WNBA playoff slate today so here are some quick thoughts.

 

These games are not single elimination. They are first game of a best of three. I think a strategy when building GPP’s is to decide that one of these games blows out. If the Sun or the Lynx get down big they may rest players in the fourth quarter, rather than going all out. I think the odds are likely that one of these games blows out as well. 

 

Minnesota-Seatte

Love Seattle here. All the starters are underpriced. I think Bird plays and she is too cheap. They will play Bird big minutes in the playoffs. Not really in love with the bench, but if you wanted to take a flier Whitcomb makes some sense. Obviously if Bird is out lock Canada

 

Minnesota

Hate them here. You can play Sims on FD where she is too cheap but Fowles cuts into the minutes and the matchup sucks.

 

Vegas-Conn

Same Story. Love Vegas here. Angel McCoughtry has been under a minutes limit. I expect in the playoffs that is lifted. I like her a ton since she is under priced for playoff minutes she will probably get. Kayla McBride, Jackie Young and DeArica Hamby also should smash. Carolyn Swords at 3200 on FD is a nice value. She will play ten minutes. Wilson is right with Stewart for best play on the slate.

 

The Sun – Jasmine Thomas is too cheap. I like her especially on DK. Other than that I kind of like taking stabs on cheap Suns on the bench. I feel if the Sun fall behind their coach will experiment with some plays so Beatrice Momprier, Hiedman and Charles would be my interest there.
