Brianna Turner (DK: $6,300 FD: $5,200): Today’s first Must-Have is the safest option on the board and has been for the past couple slates. Tonight, she gets an Atlanta defense that we love to pick on. They continue to rank first in most fantasy points allowed per possession to forwards in the WNBA; notably giving up the most rebounds, 2nd-most blocks, and 3rd-most points per possession to forwards. Turner has had to play big minutes, and will continue to tonight as Griner continues to serve her suspension. Lock Brianna into your lineups on both sites and move on! DK ONLY... Read More
Brianna Turner (DK: $5,800 FD: $5,200): With Brittney Griner serving her suspension today, we should look to see the emergence of Brianna Turner as a formidable force in the WNBA. She has already logged big minutes in recent games and turning in 20+ fantasy point performances, yet her price has remained solid in this low mid-tier level. Tonight, without Griner, our research suggests she should get all the minutes she can handle and should pick up rebounds, and some of the usage that Griner is vacating from the Mercury lineup. Turner has posted rebounds of 11 and 14 in her... Read More
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... Read More
FanDuel Only Must-Have: Kelsey Plum (FD: $4,400): Tonight’s Must-Have on FanDuel is the Las Vegas point guard, Kelsey Plum. Year 3 for Plum in the W has been just as up and down as her first two. While the talent is definitely there, it hasn’t all come together for her just yet. She’s shown flashes this season and tonight could be one of those days where she breaks through and exceeds value. Her price is in the low value range where your construction will lend itself today and she is the top option for us for salary relief at guard.... Read More
Elena Delle Donne (DK: $10,700 FD: $8,400): We are going back to the EDD well tonight as she faces off against the Indiana Fever. Delle Donne put up 28 points and 15 rebounds in her last outing against the Fever before the All-Star Break. She has been almost unstoppable of late, notching three 50+ FPT performances in her last six. This game does feature a large spread, but Delle Donne has a safe floor and will carry high ownership as you will not want to miss out on another big performance should she be the reason this game blows out....
