For a two game slate this is somewhat complicated as two game slates go. The big question is what do with the Washington Mystics.
The fact is the Mystics have three available front court players if Myesha Hines-Allen is out. The problem being their three front court players are all on minutes limits. Now it is clear Theresa Plaisance’s minutes limit is the most severe as she has yet to crack 10 minutes in the last two games. Erica McCall got to 18 last game and Tina Charles 24. Charles is an interesting GPP play that could get to 30 minutes. Pay attention to pre game news. The three biggest beneficiaries are Natasha Cloud, Ariel Atkins and Shatori Kimborough as far as minutes and usage. My favorite play of the three is Ariel Atkins, followed by Cloud.
Seattle – Breanna Stewart is the number one play on the slate again. Jewel Lloyd is a fine GPP play as she has been down the past couple of games and this could be a get right spot. Katie Lou Samuelson got minutes back with Canada out. Talbot is the pivot there as her minutes also increased. If you want to play the blow out game Ezi Megabor gets interesting, and Mercedes Russel is fine for a two game slate.
Dallas gets the worst matchup in DFS versus the Connecticut Sun. Yes, Isabelle Harrison and Satou Sabally are out but here is the issue: the Dallas Coach PLAYS EVERYONE. Cheri Collier passed Kuwer on the depth chart last game and I would not be surprised if she starts this game, so I like Collier. Kuwer is a decent GPP play because if she comes in and outplays Collier she will get the minutes. Arike is fine but Im not big on her versus the Sun. Kayla Thorton will play a ton. Alicia Gray will be chalky and is a fine GPP play as well. I think people might forget about Bella Alarie, but really she makes a ton of sense to get run with Harrison out but the coach is kind of dumb so she might not do it.
The Sun – Jonquel Jones great play, Briona Jones Great play. Normally I am not big on the Sun guards but on a two game slate getting to players that will be as low owned as Jasmine Thomas or DeWanna Bonner makes sense.
GPP thoughts: Both these games have blow out potential so it makes sense to play it as one blows out.
GPP Plays I like:
Bonner, J Thomas, Collier, Kuwer, Lloyd, Talbot, Gustaffson, Charles,
Just play Stewie and Jones together as the value is there.
