Because of Ari McDonald’s amazing availability in 48.8% of leagues, I’ll mention her again in this column. In her last seven games, she averaged 15 points, 2.1 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 2.0 rebounds on 32.7 miles per game. Six of McDonald’s’ last seven games have had 24 or more fantasy points. Ever since she joined Dream’s starting lineup, she’s been great.

Chicago sky

Azura Stevens, who is available in 50% of the leagues, has had statistical ups and downs throughout the season. However, things have been getting better lately. In three of her last five games, Stevens has scored 25 or more fantasy points. Stevens is a great option if you want to grab the attention of Team Sky, which averages second in the league in PPGs (85.4).

Connecticut Sun

Courtney Williams has scored 29 or more fantasy points three times in her last five games. It is still available in 17.6% of the leagues. The only teams that average more PPG than Sun (85.2) are Sky and Aces (90.5). For those who want to be introduced to one of the league’s best offenses, Natisha Hideman also remains a viable streamer. It is available in 88.5% of the leagues. Hideman has averaged 15.5 fantasy points in his last four games.

Dallas Wings

In the last seven games, Arike Ogunbovale has put in some epic performances for fantasy managers. Five times she scored 40 or more fantasy points. If you’re looking for a streamer, Teaira McCowan is still available in 38.7% of the leagues. She averaged 19.5 fantasy points in her last four games.

indiana fever

Fever is the youngest team in the league and they have been fighting for both sides of the court all season. Indiana is ranked 10th in offense rating (96.5) and 12th in defense rating (107). Unlike the Aces, the Fever doesn’t have fantastic wealth, but they do have a few players that are overlooked in fantasy. Queen Egbo is still available in 42.2% of leagues and is averaging 19.7 fantasy points per game this season.

Las Vegas Aces

Rikuna Williams finally returned to the Aces earlier this week after suffering a lingering foot injury and played 12 minutes. It is available in 87.6% of the leagues. Williams is worth tucking away if you have a spot on the list to see what role she plays in the Las Vegas rotation as aces are already top of the offensive rating (107.5).

Los Angeles Sparks

Olivia Nelson-Ododa, who is available in 98.6% of leagues, has 10 or more fantasy points in three of her last four games. If you participate in a deeper format, she can provide fantasy managers with well-rounded stat lines. Katie Lou Samuelson is another Sparks streamer who is available in 77% of the leagues. She has averaged 18.6 fantasy points per game this season.

Minnesota Links

Natalie Achonwa (available in 98% of leagues) has scored 20 or more fantasy points twice in her first four games this season, averaging 16.2 minutes per game. Ahonva is on the fantasy radar, with Lynx desperately trying to fill the void left by Sylvia Fowles and Nikolina Milic failing.

New York Liberty

Stephanie Dolson is currently available in 80% of the leagues. Over the past six games, she has averaged 8.3 points per game, 5.0 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.2 blocks per 24.6 miles per game. During this period, Dolson scored 20 or more fantasy points three times. As another streaming option, Han Xu is available in 85.2% of leagues and averages 18.4 fantasy points per game.

Phoenix Mercury

After parting ways with Tina Charles last Saturday, it seems likely that Shay Peddy, who is available in 90.5% of leagues, will retain his starting role in the backcourt as the Mercury leans on his defense lately. In five of her last six games, Peddy has scored 18 or more fantasy points.

Seattle Storm

Tina Charles will make her Storm debut in Wednesday’s game against the Aces. In addition to averaging 31.3 fantasy points per game, she has a 26.1% utilization rate. This trend should continue in Seattle. Storm is ranked 2nd in defense rating (96) but 9th in offense rating (98.3). Charles will be able to immediately contribute to Seattle’s offense and she should be able to co-exist with the rest of the team’s playmakers.

Washington mystics

Another player who should be on more fantasy teams is Alisha Clark, who is available in 50.3% of the leagues. I mentioned it last week and will do it again. Why? She deserved it. In the last 10 games, Clark has averaged 10.5 points, 4.9 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.4 steals on 26.5 miles per game. On nights when Elena Delle Donne is not active, Clark’s ceiling of fantasy is even higher.
