The WNBA features highly talented basketball wizards who have put in a lot of work through school, college, and now in the professional setup. In this match, a destructive Minnesota Lynx takes one of the bottom table dwellers in Indiana Fever. More about MIN vs IND Dream11 will be provided here.
Lynx: Lynx ranks third in the defensive rating at 99.2 and fourth in Points Allowed Per Game at 79.2 PPG. They have a solid combo of Collier and Fowles up-front who can combine for some victorious nights but they would have liked more consistency from other players. Minnesota ranks first in two-point FG% at 50.2% and it is not a surprise since Collier and Fowles can do a lot of damage inside. One of the problems plaguing the Lynx is turnovers at 14.3 TPG which is the second-worst in the league.
Fever: Indiana has the worst record in the league and they are the second-worst team in Points per game with 74.8 and their defense is inadequate to deal with the opposition’s damage as they are the worst team in terms of defensive rating which is at 108.6. The duo of Kelsey and Tiffany Mitchell carry the major load for offense but a thin bench and an inconsistent Forward lineup means that they struggle to muster up complete team performances.

At least one between Sylvia Fowles and Napheesa Collier deserves to be in the Dream11 Fantasy Basketball lineup.
Both Tiffany Mitchell and Kelsey Mitchell are in exceptional touch. Keep consideration of Teaira McCowan who can notch up double-doubles.
(Last Match Stats)
PPG: 16.1 RPG: 10.1 BPG: 1.8 SPG: 1.7
Fowles has been a brilliant presence in the league for 13 seasons now and is a decorated athlete. Sylvia likes to operate inside the point, using her long arms and off-the-ball mechanics to get herself open. She makes terrific cuts and gets in the right position to receive passes and can also dribble on the low-post executing near the rim. Sylvia is also a nice shooter and one of the best rebounders and defenders to ever play the game of basketball.
PPG: 16.9 SPG: 1.0
Mitchell is a superb shot-creator and uses her terrific ball-handling along with hesitation and dribble fakes to create space. She can rain it down from long-range, hit pull-ups, fadeaways, jab-step jumpers, and can also take it to the hole, finishing while absorbing contact. Kelsey leads her team in scoring and is their ace on the offensive end.
PPG: 16.3 RPG: 6.6 BPG: 1.3 SPG: 1.2
Collier has one of the best footwork in the league. Her ability to operate from both perimeter and inside the paint makes her a tough player to guard. She can pop jumpers from outside while also having the ability to put them on the floor and drive to the rim. Napheesa also has a back-to-basket game and uses pump fakes and shuffles to create shot opportunities. Her defense is incredible and there is a reason why she made the All-WNBA Second and WNBA All-Defensive Second Team last season.
PPG: 11.1 RPG: 9.5 BPG: 1.3
Teaira is a classic Center whose main job is to score in the paint and act as the last line of defense while clamping on rebounds. McCowan gets great positions on the low block and her strong body allows her to finish against defensive pressure. She is one of the best rebounders in the league and has led the Fever in win shares for the last three seasons.
PPG: 14.1 RPG: 3.6
Kayla is a highly talented guard whose main job is to score on the team. She can hit the three-pointer but her signature moves are her floaters and runners which deploy with great timing knowing when to get rid of the ball. She uses her nifty arsenal to finish over taller defenders and it is a joy to watch her play.
Tiffany has tremendous ball-handling skills and her specialty is to create drives closer to the basket. She is an athletic player and her dynamic approach allows her to get right into the body of a defender, giving her the opportunity to get some free throws and she is eighth on the list of made free throws.
PPG: 11.5 RPG: 3.3
