What’s up guy’s? It’s been a little bit since I last wrote an article and what better way to dive back into it than a 4-game slate. There are some great Forward matchups today, Brittney Griner is back and getting her normal minutes and the playoffs are coming soon. Let’s dive into today’s play’s!
Courtney Vandersloot $7,600 – She’s arguably playing the best ball in the WNBA as of late. In her last game Friday night she went for 47 fps in 44 minutes including a nice double-double (22p and 12a). Vanderslooot has a great matchup against a fast paced SEA team that doesn’t play much defense. I recommend playing her because at her current price she’s hit 5x value in her last 4 games and is in another great spot to do so tonight.
Seimone Augustus $4,900 – Augustus has become a player to look for while making your lines recently because of the injury to Lindsay Whalen. She’s stepped up and been the primary ball handler for the Lynx. Good news she’s a consistent player and has hit 20 or more fps in 3/5 games. I like her in this matchup against NY’s scrappy guards. This will be a playoff type matchup and should be close considering MIN will be without Whalen and Brunson.
Shekinna Stricklen $3,800 – She starts and gets a lot of minutes for the Sun but, she struggles to have big games. Stricklen is consistent and you know what to expect from her. She has a nice matchup against PHO who give up pts to scoring guards. At her price look for her to be around value.
Shaton Walker-Kimbrough $3,000 – SWK has been starting in place of EDD and with limited minutes she’s been doing a great job. In every start since EDD’s injury she’s scored at least 10+ fps. She’s a great value play for tonight.
Breanna Stewart $8,300 – Stewart has a nice matchup against a weak CHI frontcourt that struggles to rebound and defend opposing bigs. Stewart should have another night like she did last time against CHI where she recorded 25p and 11r, which was good for 41 fps. I personally think she has the best matchup for a forward tonight.
Jonquel Jones $8,200 – Griner is back for PHO, but I don’t care. I think Jones will still have a good game. BG struggles to defend good post players and she gives up rebounds at a surprising rate for being the tallest player on the court at all times. I think Jones will shock some people tonight.
Cadace Dupree $6,800 – Dupree is someone that could be chalk on this slate due to her performance last time out against WAS. She went for 28p and 6r which was good for 44 fps. She will be at home (where IND plays much better) and will get WAS without EDD again because of injury. She has been inconsistent this year which is why I’d be a little hesitant, but she could make for a good gpp play.
Plenette Pierson $3,000 – You never want to deal with injuries , but if you’re the Lynx you have to be somewhat satisfied with the replacement. Pierson is that replacement and she’s a WNBA vet with lots of experience. Last time out she started her first game of the year and went for 10p,6r and 4a which was good for 24 fps. That’s 8x value,
which will make her chalky tonight.
