What a difference a day makes. In Tuesday’s WNBA Playbook, I talked about how different my lineups were from site to site, mostly because they were offering different slates due to the split nature of the schedule. I also talked about how there were several guards I liked for cash games, including a few who weren’t even mentioned in the playbook. Throw all of that out the window for Wednesday’s slate.

Apparently, all of the safe guards played Tuesday, because they are awfully hard to come by Wednesday. As a result, my FanDuel and DraftKings cash lineups are nearly identical. I don’t usually like to do that, but I trust who I trust, and as tempting as it would be to throw Maya Moore or Sylvia Fowles in a cash lineup, I just can’t do it.

Player  FanDuel Price   DraftKings Price  Comments
Elena Delle Donne, F, WAS  $    8,600  $     13,400 All of the top players have at least one bad game in their recent history, but it is pretty easy to forgive EDD for having just 11 points and seven rebounds against the Sparks last week. It is her only game with fewer than 35 fantasy points on FanDuel since June 7.
Sylvia Fowles, F, MIN  $    8,500  $     13,200 Sylvia Fowles has been remarkably inconsistent of late, but I fully expect her to bounce back after struggling against Indiana a week ago. She could get a few more rebounds with Rebekkah Brunson out as well.
Maya Moore, F, MIN  $    7,900  $     11,800 Maya Moore finally shot better Saturday against the Sky, but she did very little else. Her price is down after three consecutive poor fantasy games, and I would be a bit shocked if she didn't bounce back against the Fever.
Chiney Ogwumike, F, CON  $    7,300  $     10,300 Ogwumike had 16 points, eight rebounds, a block and two steals in her only game against the Liberty this season. The Liberty have allowed the fourth most rebounds per game this season.
Jasmine Thomas, G, CON  $    5,200  $        8,500 I would have been perfectly content to fade Jasmine Thomas Wednesday, but she is just better than the similarly priced players on FanDuel. Hopefully, getting Alyssa Thomas back will create more open looks for Jasmine.
Latoya Sanders, F, WAS  $    6,100  $        8,000 Sanders has gone eight straight games without a double-double, but Atlanta has allowed more rebounds than any team in the league. She has been a solid cash game of late, but I like her upside as well.
Victoria Vivians, G, IND  $    5,100  $        7,500 Vivans has been consistently inconsistent, so it wasn't exactly shocking to see her shoot 1-8 in her last game. That being said, she had at least 25 points, five rebounds and three assists in two of her last five games, and that kind of upside is hard to come by at the guard position in this slate.
Ariel Atkins, G, WAS  $    4,900  $        6,900 This is not a good slate for safe guards, and Atkins is your best bet for cash games. She has at least eight field goal attempts in each of her last five games and has scored at least 19 fantasy points on DraftKings in each of those games.
Brittany Boyd, G, NY  $    5,300  $        6,300 Boyd is the only Liberty player I will trust for cash games. She has played at least 18 minutes in each of her last five games and is averaging 24.3 fantasy points on FanDuel over that span.
Kelsey Mitchell, G, IND  $    5,500  $        6,000 A month ago it would have been inconceivable for Kelsey Mitchell to cost less than Victoria Vivians. It is undeniable Mitchell was better when veteran Candice Dupree was out, but even so, we have to expect Mitchell to improve considering she is shooting 19.4 percent over the last 10 days. 
Epiphanny Prince, G, NY  $    3,700  $        5,200 Prince finally shot better in her last game, but she played just 14 minutes. I felt better playing her for fantasy when she was consistently playing 20+ minutes per game, but she still has a higher ceiling than anyone priced near her.
Rachel Banham, G, CON  $    4,200  $        5,100 Banham has played at least 22 minutes in each of her last three games, and now that Alex Bentley has been traded, Banham should be a safe fantasy play if Courtney Williams remains out.
Cecilia Zandalasini, F, MIN  $    3,500  $        3,900 Rebekkah Brunson is doubtful with a thigh injury, and whoever replaces her in the starting lineup will be quite valuable. Zandalasini is the most likely suspect, but she is dealing with an ankle injury. If she is out, Temi Fagbenle and Lynetta Kizer could wind up with most of the power forward minutes.
