Skylar Diggins-Smith, DAL at LA ($7600 FanDuel, $10,700 Draft Kings): Smith is the safest bet among guards to make a big impact, as the only one averaging over 32 fantasy points per game in the FanDuel format (no other guard is over 26.5 fp/game on the season). She has played the Sparks twice this season, scoring 37.6 fantasy points on June 9 and 44.7 in LA on June 13.

Allie Quigley, CHI vs NY ($5900 FD, $8400 DK): Quigley has scored over 20 fantasy points (FD format) in nine straight games, and is coming off back-to-back consistent performances of 19 points/two rebounds/three assists and 20 points/three rebounds/two assists.

Monique Currie, PHO vs SA ($3800 FD, $4700 DK): Currie was traded by the Stars to the Mercury earlier this season, and initially had a smaller role. However, with Brittney Griner’s injury, Currie has helped fill the production vacuum and is averaging almost 20 fantasy points in just over 22 minutes in her last four games. On Sunday, she faces her former team which could help her play at a motivated level.

MINNEAPOLIS, MN – JULY 16: Sylvia Fowles
MINNEAPOLIS, MN – JULY 16: Sylvia Fowles /


Sylvia Fowles, MIN vs SEA ($7500 FD, $12,500 DK): Fowles is one of five healthy franchise DFS producers going on Sunday, but she has the least expensive price tag in FD at only $7.5k (the other four are all at $8.3k). Fowles has averaged more than 43 fantasy points in her last three games.

Jantel Lavender, LA vs DAL ($3500 FD, $4300 DK): Lavender is one of two low-priced/high-risk forwards considered in this space. She has not produced a lot on the season, but in her last two games she has seen a minutes jump to 26.5 mpg and averaged more than 24 fantasy points (FD format) in that stretch.

Cayla George, PHO vs SA ($3000 FD, $4600 DK): George is the other high-risk/low-priced forward on this list. She had done very little all season as a low-minutes back-up. However, she exploded for 14 points and 14 rebounds in 27 minutes off the bench in her last game. An n of 1 is too risky to project as anywhere near a sure thing, but with Brittney Griner out and a game against the struggling Stars, it is possible that George could have earned herself more time and another chance to produce.
