IND vs MIN Dream11: I am a WNBA fan and I have loved watching the league since 2019. There are various talented players that flow under the radar and the post-game is alive in the league even now. Yes, there are mostly shooters making most of the dent but there are highly intriguing inside players too. Anyway, in this game, the Minnesota Lynx will host the Indiana Fever.
The Fever has begun this season, just like the last one, winning just three of their 15 games. In their last game, they lost to the Liberty in the last game 83:97 despite a 23-points performance by Kelsey Mitchell. On the other hand, the Lynx team has had a similar journey to fever, winning just three of their 13 games, an injury to Sylvia Fowles has only complicated the matters further. They lost to the Mystics 59:76 in the last match as the offense once again disappeared. Will this be a low-scorer?
Host: Minnesota Lynx
Visitors: Indiana Fever
Match Timing: 13 June, @ 04:30 AM (+05:30 UTC)
Venue: Target Center
Two teams that are reeling
Losing Sylvia surely hurts the Lynx, a team that has already been among the worst offensive squads. One of the major problems for the Lynx has been that except Sylvia, no one has been consistent scoring-wise, and the struggles of Aerial Powers has surely hurt the team. For instance, in the last game, Powers had 12 and Banham had 10 but apart from them, no one even reached the double-figures as the team shot a horrific 32.8%. Is this going to be the template for Lynx’s season.
The Fever has been the worst defensive team in the league, which is a surprise to me, to be honest, considering they have rookies like Engstler and Nalyssa, both capable defenders. Strangely, they lead the league in offensive rebounds per game but are second-worst in terms of defensive rebounds per game. Egbo, Smith, and Nalyssa have been amazing getting to the offensive boards, but the team rebounding remains a question mark. Kelsey Mitchell is burdened with too many scoring responsibilities, Vivivans has been strong but overall, it is the defense that has let them down.

BENCH: Alanna Smith, Emily Engstler, Destanni Henderson, Lexie Hull, Alaina Coates, Tiffany Mitchell.
You can’t turn your back when guarding Kelsey as she can bury deep-range shots but she is all to the Fever’s offense at times. I believe she will be in 18=25 points and 3-6 assists range. She can be selected as a Star/Pro Player in the Dream 11 Prediction scenario.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 26-36
Kayla is an incredible isolation player but she hasn’t been consistent which has hurt the Lynx’s chances. She is questionable for the game but if she plays, she can be in 11-17 points and 4-6 assists range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 14-25
Vivians shot a mere 25% in the last game but she has mostly been a huge factor on the offensive end. I believe she will be in 14-21 points, 4-7 rebounds, and 3-6 assists range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 24-36
Forward Aerial is an incredible scorer but has found it tricky to find the back of the net this season. I believe she will be in 14-19 points and 5-8 rebounds range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 20-31
Forward NaLyssa is an incredible defender and rebounder while also figuring out the offense on the tough WNBA level. I believe she will be in 14-21 points, 6-10 rebounds, and 1-2 blocks/steals range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 22-32
Forward Jessica shot just 1/5 in the last game and she needs to do a much better job on the offensive end. I believe she will be in 8-14 points and 9-14 rebounds range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 16-26
