This is the third edition of “Daily Fantasy WNBA Lineup Advice – The Scales”
We have an interesting three-game DFS slate tonight, with all games starting at 7 P.M. eastern standard time.
Lets make our way out to New York for the first game:
Indiana @ New York
The New York Liberty (12-12) are back home to host an adrenaline-filled Indiana Fever (9-17) squad. Two nights ago, Indiana took down the best team in the WNBA, the Minnesota Lynx in a close 84-82 decision.
The last game between these two teams on July 28th, ended in a close 85-84 Liberty win in Indiana. Tina Charles ($8500) dropped 25 points with an underwhelming 3 rebounds and 4 assists. Bria Hartley ($4500) put together a 17/3/4 line. The Liberty and Fever are two teams that love to utilize their whole bench during games. Therefore, the minutes of the starters tend to get diluted. While focusing on a few players from this game, focus on looking for players that have consistency in minutes while also producing on the court.
SCALES TIP TO INDIANA
Seattle @ Connecticut
First of all, the Seattle Storm (10-15) are a team in a must-win situation tonight. Their match-up is the Connecticut Sun (15-9), the 3rd best team in WNBA. The Storm are tied with Atlanta for the 8th spot. They need a win, and an Atlanta loss tonight to recover from their shaky play of late.
Most noteworthy, Sun guard Jasmine Thomas will be sidelined for this game with an ankle injury suffered last game. As a result, Alex Bentley ($5000) will be joining the starting five. Seattle looks in a position to take a win tonight if the pieces all fall in the correct position. Breanna Stewart ($8700), Sue Bird ($5000) and Jewell Loyd ($6700) are a consistent force going against Connecticut; a team that has allowed all three players to be among the top-10 players in the WNBA in points averaged against.
SCALES TIP TO SEATTLE
Minnesota @ Atlanta
The Atlanta Dream (10-15) can not touch Minnesota this season. The Lynx (20-3) are looking to bounce back after the loss to Indiana.
Fowles ($8900), Moore ($7800) and Augustus ($5000) have been dominant vs Atlanta all season. Together, they have a starting core averaging numbers of 57 points and 18.5 rebounds (and Augustus missed the prior game)
To keep this game close, Atlanta will need everything from Guards Layshia Clarendon ($7100) and Tiffany Hayes ($5800) and for Elizabeth Williams ($6000) to control Fowles without fouling out.
