There are two games on the schedule for Thursday night: the Dream are at the Fever at 7:00 PM ET, and the Stars are at the Sparks at 10:30 PM ET. Please find preview information for Both games here. Let’s see what value we can find in these two outings.
Erica Wheeler, IND vs ATL ($6200): Wheeler has stepped up in the presence of Briann January, who is out again on Thursday. In her last three games, Wheeler has averaged 19.3 points, 4.7 assists, 3.7 boards and 1.3 steals per game.
Layshia Clarendon, ATL at IND ($5500): Clarendon broke a streak of three straight games between 3.8 and 13.9 fantasy points with a solid nine point, eight rebound, six assist, two steal outing that netted her 27.6 fantasy points against the Storm on Tuesday. She had scored between 32.7 and 37 fantasy points in the four games before her streak, so Tuesday’s game could signal a return to that level of play for Clarendon.
Alana Beard, LA vs SA ($4800): Beard has scored at least 21 fantasy points in four of her last five games. The exception was an 8.1 fantasy point effort on the road against the Stars last Friday, but she bounced back with 21 fantasy points against them on Tuesday.
Nneka Ogwumike, LA vs DAL ($8600): Ogwumike has a couple of quieter games in her last two outings, averaging “only” 30.7 fantasy points after averaging almost 46 fantasy points in the three games before that. The reigning MVP is in a good position for a bounce-back game, against the only winless team in the league.
Candice Dupree, ATL at IND ($6200): Dupree is the leading scorer on the Fever, and has clearly played better at home of late than on the road. In her last three home games, she has averaged almost 31 fantasy points vs only a bit less than 20 fantasy points in her last three road games.
Damiris Dantas, ATL at IND ($3400): Dantas has stepped up big in the last two games for the Dream, averaging 19 points and 4.5 boards after managing only 17 points and nine rebounds total over the previous four games. She is coming off a career-high 22 points in her last game.
