As the WNBA regular season hurtles towards its conclusion, we have a robust four-game slate featuring some of the most interesting teams in the league. Washington will try to take care of business against Dallas without Elena Delle Donne while the Sparks begin to figure out what life looks like without Liz Cambage. Those frontcourts could be great for fantasy, but backcourt values appear extremely hard to come by. That is more of an issue on FanDuel, where we don’t have the benefit of a UTIL spot.




Sue BirdSEACON620020.62###19.75
Bird hasn't topped 20 fantasy points since June, and it may be folly to expect that to change (at least until the playoffs begin). That being said, she averaged 30.5 fantasy points in two games against Connecticut. Bird has been an icon in Connecticut for more than two decades, and I think there is a chance she shows out in her last regular season game there. If I'm looking for a cheap dart throw at guard, Bird looks like the best bet. 
Skylar Diggins-SmithPHOLA####38.4###38.58
Diggins-Smith has scored at least 50 fantasy points in three of her last four games, and she is averaging 39.7 fantasy points on four days of rest this season. She remains the safest guard in the league and she is eminently affordable on DK.
Shey PeddyPHOLA810021.17###21.75
I fear I am leaning too heavily on Phoenix, but considering they have five players averaging 33+ minutes in their last six games, it stands to reason they would be among the safest plays on the slate. Peddy is averaging 26.3 fantasy points over that span 
Tiffany HayesATLMIN870025.92###24.44
Minnesota is last in fantasy points allowed to guards and after beginning the season extremely late, Hayes has averaged 28.7 fantasy points since the All-Star break. She looks like a nice value on DraftKings and should be safe for cash games. 
Ariel AtkinsWASDAL840026.09###25.65
Like Myisha Hines-Allen, it appears Atkins is emerging as one of the go-to players when Elena Delle Donne sits. Atkins has double-digit field goal attempts in every game Delle Donne has missed this season. I don't entirely trust Atkins, but she appears to be underpriced on FanDuel.
Diana TaurasiPHOLA####30.18###28.64
There is a case to be made to play both Taurasi and Diggins-Smith, considering they have combined for at least 97 fantasy points in three of their last four games. Taurasi is averaging 40.5 fantasy points on four days' rest this season, and while I would rather pay up for Diggins-Smith if I could, Taurasi looks like the better value on FD.
Katie Lou SamuelsonLAPHO610019.51###18.90
Samuelson has scored 20+ fantasy points in six of her last nine games, including both games Liz Cambage missed. Samuelson played 36 minutes her last time out and she should play heavy minutes Thursday with Liz Cambage gone and half of the Sparks' backcourt questionable.


Chiney OgwumikeLAPHO800018.39###18.10
Ogwumike missed Saturday's game with a non-COVID illness, but I would hope she is good to go after four days off. Ogwumike has started her last four games, averaging 29 minutes and 31.8 fantasy points in those games. With Liz Cambage gone, there is no reason not to expect more of the same Thurdsay. Phoenix is 10th out of 12 teams in fantasy points allowed to forwards.
Nneka OgwumikeLAPHO####33.81###34.22
Chiney Ogwumike looks like the better value, but Nneka Ogwumike is playable alongside her. Nneka is averaging 36.8 fppg against Phoenix this season, and she averaged 37.5 fantasy points in two games with Liz Cambage out. The top tier of forwards is pretty volatile and Ogwumike looks like a safe cash play.
Tina CharlesSEACON####29.39###28.38
I don't want to overreact to one game, as Tina Charles played six more minutes and scored 27.5 more fantasy points on Sunday than she had in any of her nine previous games with Seattle. That being said, Charles is averaging 0.98 fantasy points per minute on the season and 1.06 FFPM with Seattle. If she plays 30+ minutes again, she is much too cheap on FanDuel.
Myisha Hines-AllenWASDAL700019.06###18.46
Hines-Allen has scored 29+ fantasy points in four of the last five games Elena Delle Donne has missed. She is a must-play on both sites with Delle Donne getting another day off for rest Thursday. 
Naz HillmonATLMIN780012.51###12.40
Hillmon has played at least 29 minutes in five straight games, scoring at least 25 FD fantasy points in four of those. I have no idea why she remains so cheap on that site. Hillmon is playable on DK but she will be in all of my FD lineups if Monique Billings is out again.
