DAL vs IND Dream11: The WNBA is constantly hurling towards the Playoffs and this has been one of the most entertaining periods of the season.

WNBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

Wings solidify Playoffs position

The Wings lost their way in the middle but a three-game winning streak has emboldened their Playoffs position. The huge booster is the fact that they bet the top-two teams in the league back-to-back and that too without their leading scorer Arike Ogunbowale. It raises a question if the team is better without Arike or is it just a brief spark before the flame settles?

There is no doubt that the re-insertion of Teaira McCowan in the starting lineup has improved the team in many ways. If the Wings make the Playoffs, it will be important for both Allisha Gray and Marina Mabrey to click from the shooting area. Kayla Thornton has done a much better job at the Forward position but the frontline depth is an issue.

Fever’s results are not surprising

The Fever has not won in more than two and a half months period. The major reason for that has been their awful defense. There is just no interior defense when it comes to Indiana and the other area where they have struggled is identifying spot-up shooters who could ease the load on Kelsey Mitchell, who has been incredible in terms of scoring.

The Fever has a big stack of rookies. NaLyssa Smith is the most promising as a scorer, rebounder, and defender. Queen Egbo can benefit from playing with a loaded playmaker (ala Shakira Austin was helped by Natasha Cloud) whereas Destanni Henderson has turned heads. On the other hand, Emily Engstler and Lexie Hull have shown promise too.

Expected Fantasy Points Range: 30-44

Victoria Vivians(IND)
Points: 06
Rebounds: 06
Assists: 06

Teaira McCowan(DAL)
Points: 21
Rebounds: 16

Points: 15
Rebounds: 03
Assists: 03
Steals: 01

Mabrey’s return to the early season form has been a major factor during recent Wings’ victories, and the team needs her to perform at this level at least 90% of times. I believe she will be in the 13-19 points range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 28-40

DAL vs IND DREAM 11 LINEUP BALANCERS

  • Allisha Gray (DAL) limit 12 points, 4 assists, 3 rebounds in the last game. Guard Gray has been getting it done for most parts but more boost is needed from her. I believe she will be in the 11-16 points range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 20-30
  • Kayla Thornton (DAL) limit 9 points, 7 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 block, 1 steal in the last game. Forward Kayla has been getting it done lately especially on the scoirng end. I believe she will be in 8-13 points and 4-7 rebounds range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 20-29

    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 13-23
  • Queen Egbo(IND) limit 1 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 block in the last game. Queen has had a couple of off games but can be a much more effective player alongside an effective playmaker. I believe she will be in the 6-10 points and 5-8 rebounds range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 10-22
  • Ty Harris (DAL) limit 15 points, 6 assists, 1 steal in the last game. Guard Ty played 23 minutes in the last game but may not receive similar minutes if Arike is back.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 10-20
  • Awak Kuier (DAL) limit 2 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist, 2 blocks in the last game. Center Awak is athletic but her offense really lacks polish.
