Dearica Hamby (DK: $10,400 FD: $7,400): Forwards against Atlanta, you know the drill. The Dream have struggled containing forwards all year, so we don’t expect that to stop today. According to our DVP, they allow the most rebounds per possession to forwards in the WNBA. This is great news for Hamby, who since seeing extended minutes in the last eight games or so, has logged 9+ rebounds in five of her last six outings. Atlanta also allows the 3rd-most points per possession to opposing forwards, which is another good sign for Hamby as she has scored in double digits in six of her last seven games. The spread is at 13 right now, so the sportsbooks are definitely thinking this one blows out. Don’t be alarmed though, Hamby is crucial to the Aces and frankly the don’t have many bodies to throw out there who provide the slashing ability she does, which is why she has seen 32+ minutes in six of her last seven games, with a few of those being decided early. Laimbeer knows what he has in Hamby, and he’s giving her all the minutes she can handle, no matter the scoreboard. Lock Hamby in as the best play on the slate tonight! 

Bria Hartley (DK: $6,400 FD: $5,200): The New York guard is a Must-Have for the first time this season and is coming off some great games where she put up 20+ fantasy point outings. Hartley is very efficient and produces greatly when given minutes, and today, our research suggests that she will see near 30 minutes! In the four games she has seen 28+ minutes this season, she has produced over 23 FPTs in all of them. She is a player that contributes in all stat categories and is very involved, which we as fantasy players love to see. She gets a good matchup today against the Lynx, who have actually struggled to guards a bit this season. They are allowing the 3rd-most points and the most steals per possession to guards, according to our DVP. Hartley is more than capable of exploiting this today in an expanded role with Asia Durr and Amanda Zahui B out today with injury. Feel safe playing Hartley in all formats on both sites today!
