Connecticut Sun

  • Pace: 80.1 (ranked #4 of 12)
  • Offensive Rating: 108.5 (ranked #3 of 12)
  • Defensive Rating: 102.0 (ranked #7 of 12)

GUARDS:

Jasmine Thomas @ $6.5K on FD/$9.5K on DK (30.8 minutes per game – 26.4 fantasy points per game – 23.0% usage rate): Thomas couldn’t quite match the season-high 29-point (45.8 fantasy point) outing she had against Seattle the last time these teams met, however, she did make up for it with 15 points, three rebounds, six assists and six steals (32.6 fantasy points). I’m even willing to overlook the five turnovers she had, if it doesn’t become a habit. There aren’t very many players that demonstrate her level of consistency and upside at the guard position.

San Antonio Stars Pace: 78.1 (ranked #8 of 12) Offensive Rating: 92.4 (ranked #12 of 12) Defensive Rating: 104.8 (ranked #8 of 12) GUARDS: Kayla McBride @ $5.3K on FD/$8.0K on DK (33.2 minutes per game/ 24.2 fantasy points per game/ 22.3% usage rate):  McBride stepped up her scoring with Jefferson out of the lineup and produced 22 points (27.8 fantasy points) in 35 minutes. This was her second-best scoring effort of the season and seventh consecutive games with double-digit points. Expect San Antonio to lean on her heavily if Jefferson misses this matchup.

Washington Mystics  

  • Pace: 78.2 (ranked #8 of 12)
  • Offensive Rating: 106.2 (ranked #4 of 12)
  • Defensive Rating: 99.8 (ranked #3 of 12)

GUARDS:

Tayler Hill @ $4.7K (26.9 minutes per game – 21.0 fantasy points per game – 25.1% usage rate): Hill continued to see a downward trend in both minutes (16 minutes) and fantasy production (9.7 fantasy points) against Phoenix. Prior to this three-game scoring slump, she had nine consecutive double-digit scoring outings so I’m still not worried, at least not yet.

Indiana Fever

  • Pace: 77.4 (ranked #12 of 12)
  • Offensive Rating: 103.0 (ranked #8 of 12)
  • Defensive Rating: 108.8 (ranked #12 of 12)

GUARDS:

Erica Wheeler @ $5.5K (24.9 minutes per game – 19.3 fantasy points per game – 24.0% usage rate): Wheeler’s minutes and production initially took a hit when Briann January returned from an Achilles injury, however, she’s been trending upward lately with 19.4, 22.1 and 26.7 fantasy point performances. With consistent playing time (27, 26 and 28 minutes in those last three contests), Wheeler is turning out to be the only silver lining in an otherwise frustrating Indiana backcourt.

LA Sparks

  • Pace: 77.6 (ranked #10 of 12)
  • Offensive Rating: 111.5 (ranked #1 of 12)
  • Defensive Rating: 101.5 (ranked #5 of 12)

GUARDS:

Chelsea Gray @ $6.2K (32.6 minutes per game/ 26.3 fantasy points per game/ 21.3% usage rate): Gray’s stat lines have looked nearly identical, game in and game out. That’s a good thing. 28.7 fantasy points in 36 minutes against Washington has been a routine outing for her. Hopefully you routinely include her in your cash game and tournament lineups.

Atlanta Dream Pace: 80.2 (ranked #2 of 12) Offensive Rating: 94.9 (ranked #10 of 12) Defensive Rating: 99.2 (ranked #2 of 12) GUARDS: Tiffany Hayes @ $6.2k (31.6 minutes per game/ 26.7 fantasy points per game/ 23.3% usage rate): While some may look at Hayes 22.4 fantasy point outing against New York as a “glass half empty performance,” I opt to look at it as a glass half full effort. While it’s a clip below her most recent level of productivity it still above the level of mediocre performances she had earlier in June. Her status as a viable cash game and GPP option has not changed.

LA Sparks

Pace: 77.6 (ranked #10 of 12)

Offensive Rating: 111.5 (ranked #1 of 12)

Defensive Rating: 101.5 (ranked #5 of 12)

GUARDS:

Chelsea Gray @ $6.1K (32.4 minutes per game/ 26.1 fantasy points per game/ 20.9% usage rate): Well, another game and another consistent performance from great (28.4 fantasy points in 34 minutes against Atlanta). She gets consistent minutes, consistent production (eighth consecutive games scoring in double figures) and plays for the team with the highest offensive rating in the league. She’s a great cash game and tournament option.

Connecticut Sun

  • Pace: 79.9 (ranked #4 of 12)
  • Offensive Rating: 107.8 (ranked #3 of 12)
  • Defensive Rating: 103.6 (ranked #7 of 12)

GUARDS:

Jasmine Thomas @ $6.8K (30.8 minutes per game – 26.3 fantasy points per game – 23.0% usage rate): Thomas had her best outing of the season against Seattle with 29 real life points (45.8 fantasy points) in 31 minutes. While she hasn’t been the most consistent option this season, she’s shown flashes of being an elite guard option. There’s no reason to think that this will continue.

GUARDS:

Chelsea Gray @ $5.9K (32.2 minutes per game – 25.9 fantasy points per game – 20.9% usage rate): Gray continues to prove her worth as a valuable and consistent member of the Los Angeles backcourt with 15 points (23.9 fantasy points) against Connecticut. Continue to target her in both cash games and tournaments.
