Kelsey Mitchell @ $4.8K on $FD/7.7K on DK has reached the 20-fantasy point mark only twice in her last six games so it’s safe to say her hot start is officially over. The Fever have a record of 1 – 13 so there isn’t an abundance of consistent fantasy options on this team. She’s a rookie but her current level of fantasy production isn’t due to a lack of talent (21.01 FanDuel points/23.50 trapping points per game). She faced the Sun in her last game and scored 11 points (15.4 fantasy points). She only scored 18.7 fantasy points against them earlier this season so my expectations for tonight’s game are tempered. Connecticut has not defended the three-point line very well this season (allows a league-high opponent average 36.0 3PT%) and will be playing their fourth game in six nights. Perhaps she can take advantage of the opportunity while they are on tired legs.
