Well, Sunday went well for you if you followed my advice. I missed on a few players, but overall it was pretty successful. I actually played a lineup on Sunday that was $2,700 under the salary cap and cashed pretty nicely. I don’t know if we will ever have a six-game slate again, but it was fun while it lasted.
Today we get a more typical two-gamer with the LA Sparks @ the Indiana Fever and the Las Vegas Aces @ the Washington Mystics. The Aces are a pretty terrible team with half their roster still playing overseas, so I’m going to fade the Mystics’ players, but, on the other hand, the Aces are so short-handed that they have some good value plays we can take advantage of. Let’s get to it…
Tamera Young (LV) $3,000 @ WAS
I recommended Young on Sunday at the minimum price and she didn’t disappoint putting up 28.3 Fanduel points in 28 minutes. Surprisingly, Young’s price did not change and with Kelsey Plum and Kayla McBride still not with the team, Young should once again log 25-plus minutes and FanDuel points.
Chelsea Gray (LA) $6,300 @ IND
Gray is the top option at guard, and with some of the value on this slate, you shouldn’t have any issues fitting her in. She put up 48.4 Fanduel points in the opener, and even though 18 of those points came from steals, she can still put up 30-plus FanDuel points against a team that was dead last in defensive rating last season — giving up 107.8 points per 40 minutes in 2017.
Riquna Williams (LA) $3,200 @ IND
This will be an under-the-radar pick, but Williams had herself a good opening game, and despite only logging 17 minutes, still had 21.4 FanDuel points. If her play on Sunday earned her any extra court time tonight, she could be the steal of the night.
Erica Wheeler (IND) $4,800 vs LA
Wheeler is one of the few players who has already played two games, making it easier to for to determine what to expect from her. She is averaging 28 minutes in those two games putting up 25 Fanduel points on average. Her price limits her upside, but her price, on tonight’s slate, can be afforded.
