Two Game Friday Slate

So this two game slate all comes down to what do you do with the Washington Mystics. As of right now EDD is out HInes Allen is out, Ariel Atkins is out, Tina Charles, Erica McCall and Theresa Plaisance are all on minutes limits. One caveat Tina Charles got 24 minutes last game there is a chance her minutes limited is lifted, if it is this is a great matchup vs Atlanta.

The Rest of Washington is basically Natasha Cloud, Sydney Weise, Shavonte Zellous and Lelani Mitchell. My favorite two of those plays is Lelani Mitchell and Megan Gustafoson, if Mitchell gets the minutes she can produce which she has done before. Gustafoson is just a minutes play there is not really anyone else to play.

Atlanta is a nice play here, Washington doesnt have much on the defensive end to resist. I do prefer Monique Billings to Elizabeth Williams. Courtney Williams is going to be popular do not be afraid to picot to Tiffany Hayes. Additionally, Odyssey Sims is out so in theory this should open up time for Walter Waddel’s favorite Aria McDonald. FWIW I would like McDonald above the three cheap Mystic guards assuming McDonald starts.

Here is the thing with Minnesota; Sylvia Fowles and Naphreesa Collier are great plays and you will have the money to afford them so really just play them and move on. They could both be optimal and only score like 35. For the rest of Minnesota I still like Aerial Powers, if you decided to fade Fowles or Collier I would suggest getting to Powers or McBride in that lineup. Nobody is gonna play Crystal Dangerfield or Rachel Barnham but this is the type of matchup where one of them could explode.

As for Indiana its really just Teaira McCowan for me the way the slate is constructed. Kelsey Mitchell and Tifffany Mitchell are decent fliers in GPPs but other than that Indiana is a pass for me.

Big picture view

Stack Washington-Atlanta

GPP plays I like

Dangerfield, Barnham, Anyone with the last name Mitchell (Lelani, Tiffany, Kelsey), Hayes, McDonald, Charles

I would just take an over position on Charles and hope she gets to 30 minutes plus.
