WNBA Breakdown: 6/6/17

WASH (5-2) @ DAL (3-4)
SEA (4-2) @ SA (0-7)
CHI (1-6) @ LA (3-2)

Studs:

Candace Parker, LA $8,700 – Parker has been a workhorse for Los Angles so far this year. She’s the most expensive player on the slate and she’s deserving of that title because of her potential. She’s scored 18p in 3/4 games and has played 30 minutes in all 4 of her games this year. She’s getting a good matchup with a Chicago team that has given up 99,97 and 88 points in their last 3 games. Chicago can score some, but LA should be able to lock them up. I like Parker to fill the stat sheet in this game scoring 38-43 fps.

Elena Delle Donne, WAS $8,200 – EDD has put up some good numbers so far this year scoring 20.3p and 7.4r a game. She’s also hit at least 29 fps in 6/7 games this year. With Meeseman gone due to Euros EDD knows she has to pick up her rebounding, which has been showing with 8,7,12 and 15 rebounds since Meeseman left. EDD has elevated other parts of her game too since Meeseman departed, in her last 4 games she’s scored 36, 37, 41 and 43 fps. She has a pretty good matchup against Dallas and I expect her to score 37-42 fps.

Breanna Stewart, SEA $7,300 – I think Stewart is in for a big game. She comes in at a good price and has a decent matchup with SA. SEA has such a great offense and honestly Stewart (one of their keys) still has yet to string together good games. She shoots a lot (16 times last game) so once her shots start falling rostering her will pay off. At her price she needs 36.5 fps to hit value and I’m looking for 30-35 fps from her.

Mid Tier:

Glory Johnson, DAL $5,300 – Johnson is coming off an amazing game where she posted 22p and 13r which was good for 44.1 fps against a weak IND frontcourt. She gets another good matchup against a weaker frontcourt in WAS. I like Johnson because she’s very consistent and she rebounds the ball well. Rebounding is a weak spot for WAS and Johnson has had only 1/7 games with less than 5 rebounds. At her price she only needs 26.5 fps to hit value which is what I expect from her.

Allie Quigley, CHI $5,000 – Quigley got a late start to the season only playing in  4 games so far this year, but she’s played 28+ in each one of those games. She’s been a great scoring threat for CHI scoring more than 13 pts in each contest and hovering right around 20fps a game. While her price is a little high considering she would need 25 fps to hit value and her highest fps total on the year is 23.6. In this case you’re paying for consistency and that makes her a great cash game option. I expect her to score 19-24 fps with ease.

Value:

Kelsey Plum, SA $4,200 – This might be the last time you see Plum in this spot if she strings together a couple more good performances like last game. She scored 8p, dished out 7a, grabbed 3 boards and has 3s which was good for 24 fps. SA was running a three guard lineup and they had a lot of success doing that. So I believe they will try to stick to it as they haven’t won a game yet this year (0-7). Hopefully Plum mirrors last games performance and scores 18-23 fps.

Theresa Plaisance, DAL $3,100 – Plaisance has taken advantage of the Paris injury. She’s seen an increase in minutes and been productive for DAL. She has a nice matchup considering it’s against Washington. She should be able to grab some rebounds and get some easy buckets. I’m looking for 12-17 fps from her.
