As a DFS player, I usually look to play the biggest slates possible. We have had a fair amount of success this season with three-game WNBA slates, but I am always happy to see a fourth game on the schedule. One of the advantages of having an extra game is we can fade one of the games if the matchup looks scary. On Tuesday’s slate, the game I’m mostly avoiding is Phoenix vs. Dallas.

I’m sure somebody from this game—probably Liz Cambage—is going to go off and make me look silly, but I just don’t like the value on any of these players. When these two teams played to start the season, Cambage and Brittney Griner scored their fewest fantasy points of the season, and I don’t really trust any Dallas forwards until we have a better idea how they plan to use Glory Johnson. This might not be a terrible game for fantasy points, but with the three worst teams in defensive rating going Tuesday, there is no reason to pay full price for anyone from this game.

Player  FanDuel Price   DraftKings Price  Comments
Breanna Stewart, F, SEA  $  8,300  $     12,200 Stewart had 28 points, six rebounds and five assists against Chicago last month, and I expect her to bounce back after two quiet games last week.
Nneka Ogwumike, F, LA  $  8,000  $     11,200 No team has allowed more rebounds than the Atlanta Dream this season. Nneka Ogwumike leads the Sparks in points, rebounds and field goal percentage, and I think she has an excellent shot at her second double-double of the season.
Jewell Loyd, G, SEA  $  7,900  $        9,700 I especially like her price on DraftKings, but I will pay up on FanDuel if I can because I like the matchup so much. Only the Aces have allowed more points than the Sky this season, and Loyd had 29 points, eight rebounds and three assists against Chicago last month.
Diana Taurasi, G, PHO  $  7,200  $     10,200 Diana Taurasi has scored at least 18 points in five consecutive games despite shooting worse than 36 percent in three of them. I expect her to shoot better in this game, but even if she doesn't, the points should still be there.
A'ja Wilson, F, LV  $  7,000  $     11,400 I think A'ja Wilson is a must-play in FanDuel GPPs, but she should be just fine for cash games, as well. Her 28.4 fantasy points on FanDuel Sunday were her fewest of the entire season, and she has a much better matchup against Indiana Tuesday.
Jessica Breland, F, ATL  $  6,200  $        8,700 Jessica Breland has scored at least 25.5 fantasy points on DraftKings in every game this season, despite shooting 31.4 percent from the field. Breland is a 45.9 percent shooter in her career, and I have to believe a better shooting game is coming.
Natasha Howard, F, SEA  $  6,000  $        9,300 Natasha Howard has at least 15 points and nine rebounds in each of her last three games. He has at least 14 points and five rebounds in six of her last seven. One of her two double-doubles this season came against the Sky.
Kelsey Mitchell, G, IND  $  5,400  $        9,000 Kelsey Mitchell played just 14 minutes in her WNBA debut, but she has played at least 26 minutes and scored at least 16 points in every game since. 
Tiffany Mitchell, G, IND  $  5,200  $        6,600 If Tiffany Mitchell ever knocks down some shots, she will make somebody a lot of money. She is 9-for-27 over the last two games, and she should continue to get plenty of shots up while Candice Dupree is out.
Kelsey Plum, G, LV  $  4,500  $        3,900 I don't know how you can get away from Kelsey Plum on DraftKings, but I would consider paying for her on FanDuel as well. Plum got her first start of the season Sunday and had 12 points on 3-10 shooting to go with five rebounds, six assists and zero turnovers in 29 minutes. She is capable of repeating that performance, and she really doesn't need to at her price.
Kayla McBride, G, LV  $  4,300  $        8,300 Can someone explain to me why Kayla McBride costs less than Kelsey Plum on FanDuel? McBride has scored between 22.6 and 27.8 fantasy points in four consecutive games, and I will happily lock in that kind of production at her price.
Gabby Williams, F, CHI  $  4,300  $        7,800 Williams has either double-digit rebounds in 20+ points in each of her last three games. It may be asking too much for her to do both in the same game, but I find it encouraging she took 11 shots Sunday despite only making one. Even so, she is a bit riskier if Stefanie Dolson returns.
Alysha Clark, F, SEA  $  3,700  $        5,500 Alysha Clark has averaged 12.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 3.5 steals over her last two games. That might all be unsustainable, especially the steals, but I'm willing to take a chance against the team allowing the second most points and steals, third-most rebounds and most assists in the WNBA.
Erica McCall, F, IND  $  3,600  $        5,400 Erica may have been my worst McCall Sunday, but while she had just three points and three rebounds against the Liberty, she did take eight shots in 31 minutes. If she takes eight more shots Tuesday, I will be content with this pick.
