WNBA Breakdown: 5/30/17

Another 2 game slate for us here on this Tuesday night. I had a pretty good night Sunday as I made 5x the amount of money I played which always makes for a good night. But, what made me the most happy was I trusted my gut. While doing research Sunday I saw a couple people calling a Jonquel Jones fade and I won’t lie I considered it. But, I sat back and continued to research and the numbers pointed to a bounce back game. And boy did she do that, she had a huge 23p and 21r game along with Alyssa Thomas bouncing back for a 10x value night. I was just pleased that all my research paid off and I was able to put some other people in a good spot.

Slate News:

  • This LA/NY should be a very good matchup of two even teams.
  • Look for Prince and Robinson to have their way with the LA guards. I like Prince more because she’s the primary ball handler and isn’t afraid to shoot.
  • Ind gives up a ton of points, so look to have some Dal exposure in your lines.

LA (2-2) @ NY (2-2)

IND (2-3) @ DAL (2-2)

Studs:

Candace Parker, La $8,500 – Parker had a poor game last time out, but I expect her to bounce back tonight. This will be a be a matchup of two good teams and I expect it to be a close game. Parker has such great potential where she can go for 50+ fps like a couple games ago and that’s why I will be rostering her tonight. I expect 35-40 fps from her tonight.

Tina Charles, Ny $8,500 – Charles is leading the WNBA is shot attempts per game and the number one offensive option for Ny. Last time out she launched 25 shots, scoring 28p and grabbing 9r which was good for 43.3 fps. After struggling in her first two games this year. She’s also a very good defensive player who will have task of guarding both Parker and Ogumike tonight. I think it should be a good game where Charles posts a solid double-double. I’m looking for 35-40 fps from her tonight.

Skyler Diggins-Smith, Dal $7,300 – Dal was blown out last game so Diggins didn’t play a full game which is why her price dipped a little. I think she is a good play tonight against an Ind team who has given up one game below 80 points this season out of 5 ( that lone game was 79). Diggins is in a good spot as she’s been doing everything for Dal this year. She’s averaging 13.5p, 3.5r, 5.5a with a block and a steal a game. Which makes her priced fairly in a great matchup. I’m looking for 31-36 fps from her in a fast paced game where she can excel.

Mid Tier:

Candice Dupree, Ind $6,200 -Dupree is a very dependent player as she has now turned into Indiana’s top offensive option. She’s safe for cash games and has a nice matchup against Dal tonight. She’s scored in double digits in her last 4 games and has been getting a steady dose of minutes. Dal is a good team but they aren’t the best defensively which is why I expect Dupree to score 25-30 fps tonight.

Epiphanny Prince, Ny $5,800 – Prince is in an excellent spot tonight as La has been getting killed by scoring guards this season. Hayes went 24, Coleman 19, Hill 20 and Loyd 25. Add Prince to this list because she’s been the primary ball handler since Boyd went down. In those two games she’s played in 34 and 35 minutes and last game she was able to fill out the stat sheet for 19p, 5r and 7a which was good for 35.5 fps. I expect Prince to have a good game and finish with 29-34 fps tonight.

Glory Johnson, Dal $5,000 – Johnson is a player I have put in my lineup just about every slate she is on. She’s always priced pretty fairly and her production is just about 21 fps a night. Johnson has a nice matchup with a weak Ind front court who plays poor defense. Johnson is a seasoned vet who will take advantage of this. I’m expecting 20-25 fps from her tonight.

Value:

Tiffany Mitchell, Ind $3,900 – Mitchell has had a great year off the bench for Indy. She’s been at 20 fps in 3/5 games this year. Their game against Dal should be high scoring which benefits Mitchell who is a very good scorer. I expect 17-23 fps tonight.

Jantel Lavender, La $3,400 – Lavender has played 17 and 21 minutes his last two games which makes him one of the top options for La off the bench. She’s going to be a little risky due to her coming off the bench, but honestly how the slate breaks down you need some value in your lines in order to get multiple of the higher priced players. I’m honestly looking for Lavender to score around 15 fps.
