The Skinny

The Sky are still searching for their first road win – maybe it will come against the Fever. Though Indiana opened as five-point favorites, the line has been trending in the direction of Chicago, showing that there's some confidence in the Sky. The last time these two teams faced off, Diamond DeShields and Courtney Vandersloot both dropped 24 points in the double-overtime victory. DeShields is currently Chicago's leading scorer, dropping 15.4 points per game. Vandersloot leads the WNBA in assists per game with 8.4. Chicago's rebounding leader is Cheyenne Parker, who averages 6.6 boards per contest.

The Fever are 4-3 heading into Saturday's matchup, hoping to stay over .500 with a win against Chicago. During Indiana's most recent contest, a 76-72 win over the Wings, Candice Dupree and Kelsey Mitchell were the team's leading scorers, posting 20 points and 18 points, respectively. Mitchell ranks first for the Fever in points per game (15.7), while Dupree's 7.3 rebounds per contest lead the team. Indiana is also home to one of the league's best passers, Erica Wheeler, whose 5.7 dimes per matchup rank third in the WNBA. On FanDuel especially, it might be worth exploring Kennedy Burke as an option. She's at the minimum $3,000 price after missing Thursday's game due to college graduation. But Burke was on a roll, totaling 32 points, four rebounds, three assists, three steals and one block across her past two appearances.

The Skinny

After missing the previous two games with an ankle injury, Arike Ogunbowale is expected to be back in the lineup Saturday. The rookie has logged 20-plus minutes in each of the three full games she has played in and she will likely be counted on for similar work Saturday with Tayler Hill out for the year with a knee injury. Glory Johnson is playing in her last game before leaving for the EuroBasket tournament, and it seems as though her minutes may have been scaled back in the previous contest to prepare for it. If that's the case again Saturday, Theresa Plaisance (26 minutes last game) and Imani McGee-Stafford could be in line for role expansions again.

The Dream enter this game well-rested, having not played since last Sunday versus Connecticut. They too will have representation overseas in the near future, with Alex Bentley scheduled to join Belarus at some point. For now, she's available off the bench and should log 20-plus minutes off the bench. Monique Billings played 24 minutes off the bench last Sunday after sitting out the previous game due to injury, so she should be 100 percent for the game. Despite her recent insertion in the starting lineup, Nia Coffey saw a season-low 12 minutes in the last game. All nine available Dream players logged double-digit minutes last week, so a bench role doesn't spell doom for their fantasy value.

The Skinny

Both teams in this game are playing in the second contest of a back-to-back set, so it's possible some bench players will get more run than usual. Despite hope the Sparks would get back star Candace Parker and Alana Beard on Saturday, the pair will miss at least one more as they continue to rest injuries. Tierra Ruffin-Pratt has stepped up recently, averaging 32 minutes in the last two game while scoring in double-figures for the first two times this season. Sydney Wiese continues to start in place of Beard, but her minutes have dropped below 20 for each of the last two contests. The Ogwumike sisters continue to hold down the frontcourt, while Kalani Brown saw a season-high 21 minutes Friday. They likely came as a means to rest Chiney Ogwumike for Saturday's contest in what turned into a blowout win for the Sparks. With three roster spots filled by injured or overseas players, Los Angeles will need to rely on heavy minutes from a nine-player rotation again Saturday.

The Liberty were on the other end of a blowout loss Friday, which allowed Tina Charles to play just 18 minutes in the contest and a lot of their starters to get some added time on the bench. Since that was the case, Charles and company should be in pretty good shape to play big minutes Saturday. The Aces have given up the third-most second-chance points per game (13.3) and second-most points in the paint per game (37.3), which fits Charles' profile well enough to make her worthy of consideration despite the Liberty being massive underdogs in the contest.
