The Skinny

With the largest spread on the slate by far, Atlanta enters as a 13.5-point underdog in this contest with an implied score of just 72 on the day. The possibility of a blowout may lessen the shine on any players from this game, but especially on the Dream's side. Tiffany Hayes remains a question mark for the contest, leaving Elizabeth Williams and Brittney Sykes as the key contributors for the Dream that are guaranteed to play. If things get out of hand again, Maite Cazorla -- who played 32 minutes in a rough loss to Connecticut on Friday -- could also see a gain of minutes again Sunday.

The Mystics sit on the opposite end of the spectrum, but in the same boat with their starters potentially set to sit more than usual in a blowout scenario. Elena Delle Donne made a triumphant return to the court Friday with a team-high 28 points and has tallied 19 or more in each of her last five games played. The Dream surrender the second-most points (28.1) and the most rebounds (19.6), assists (4.8), steals (3.1) and blocks (2.6) in the league, trending toward another strong day for Delle Donne. If the game gets out of hand, player like Aerial Powers, Emma Meesseman and Shatori Walker-Kimbrough could see boosted minutes off the bench.

The Skinny

The Aces have been a tough cookie to crack this season, with the club's defense grading out as the best in the league. Opposing guards have had the most success, collecting 38.5 points,13.5 assists and 4.5 steals per game. Danielle Robinson is coming off of a four-steal effort versus the Storm and could be in a position for another decent defensive effort She also provided a season-high 10 assists in the contest and tops the board among FanDuel salary relief options for FanDuel over DraftKings. Napheesa Collier could also provide a few thefts among the forwards, though scoring from the forward position remains a shaky proposition.

Minnesota's biggest vulnerability surfaces in the backcourt, allowing the second-most points (40.2) and a league-high 5.7 steals. Sydney Colson is just a game removed from a four-theft effort versus the Mystics, though Jackie Young and Kayla McBride lead the way with 18 apiece. The Lynx also let up 4.8 three-point makes per contest, playing into the hands of Kayla McBride and Kelsey Plum. The Lynx have also been blocked 5.2 times per game, which plays right into the fantasy prospects of Aces star in Liz Cambage.

The Skinny

The highest over/under on the slate also features the smallest spread, providing opportunities for fantasy utility on both sides. Chicago allows bountiful points to both guards and forwards, keying scorers Kelsey Mitchell, Erica Wheeler and Candice Dupree for the Fever. However, opposing guards notch the fewest three-point makes per contest (3.9) in the league, diminishing some of the potential returns for both Mitchell and Wheeler. Guards who can rebound have also seen significant success, which may slightly increase the viability of adding Betnijah Laney to the lineup.

While the Fever don't play at a particularly fast pace, they sport the league's worst defensive rating (101.9). The vast majority of that damage comes from the frontlines, with forwards and centers both leading the league in scoring versus the club.
