WAS vs ATL Dream 11 Prediction, Fantasy Basketball Tips, Starting Five, Team Details, 11 September

Share

The WNBA has reached a critical phase as the Playoffs are going to begin in less than three weeks and the regular season is reaching its conclusion. In this fixture, two struggling squads in Washington Mystics and Atlanta Dream are going to face off.  More information about WAS vs ATL Dream11 will be imparted here.

WAS vs ATL Dream11 Prediction

Mystics: Mystics has had it tough this season as Elena Delle Donne continued to miss time due to her nagging back injury. Mystics struggle with their defense and are placed at eleventh in Defensive rating at 106.7. Mystics are seventh in scoring at 79.8 PPG as they have the best scorer PPG-wise in Tina Charles while Ariel Atkins has been phenomenal offensively. However, the Mystics have struggled to close out games and they have given away too many points against tough teams.

Dream: Atlanta recently got off an 11-game losing streak and it implies that they have faced massive struggles. They allow 85.0 PPG which is second-worst in the WNBA and despite playing at a decent pace of 79.2, they have struggled to hold the fort. One of the reasons for them struggling has been Chennedy Carter not being in action despite Courtney Williams carrying the load to the best of her capabilities. In this game, Dream can pull off a win but Washington is a better squad than them record-wise.

WAS vs ATL Top Picks

*Points, Rebounds, and Assists from last game*
Tina Charles
Points: 04

Rebounds: 04
Assists: 01
PPG: 23.9      RPG: 9.3        SPG: 1.0

Tina leads the WNBA in PPG but her production has suffered in the last two games because of an injury. Tina likes to get in the low-post and can take her sweet time dribbling hard on the block and patiently executing by overpowering her defender. Charles can also play a face-up game, hit post-fade-aways, especially from the middle distance between the free-throw line and the rim. She also has a lovely deep range stroke and her rebounding makes her a perennial double-double threat.

Courtney Williams
Points: 20
Rebounds: 14
Assists: 05
PPG: 16.4     RPG: 6.6       APG: 4.3       SPG: 1.1
Williams leads her team in scoring, rebounding, and assists, the three major statistical categories apart from steals and blocks. She has a devastating pull-jumper and doesn’t care if you put a hand in her face on defense. Courtney can also create opportunities near the rim using her evasive first-step and crossover moves making her a problem in triple-threat situations.

Ariel Atkins
Points: 13
Rebounds: 00
Assists: 01
PPG: 15.7    SPG: 1.6
Atkins is a highly talented shooter who can hit tough pull-ups and also has the tendency to drive to the rim. Ariel likes to put up a ton of shots, and through her long-range shooting, she frees up space for driving inside or hit mid-range jumpers.

Tiffany Hayes
Points: 08
Rebounds: 01
Assists: 03
PPG: 13.9     RPG: 3.1     SPG: 1,6
Tiffany thrives in open-court situations and would have liked to play in a team that plays at a quicker pace. She has a wonderful knack for changing directions while going to the rim and also uses her athletic abilities to draw fouls and finish despite contact.

Natasha Cloud
Points: 06
Rebounds: 01
Assists: 02
PPG: 7.6      RPG: 3.5    APG: 6.4
Cloud is a gutsy player who mostly takes care of the dribbling duties for the Mystics. She has a fantastic court vision and can use bounce passes, cross-court passes, and various other forms of passes to set her teammates up. Natasha can also shoot off the dribble, making fadeaways and pull-ups but she mostly likes to feed the ball.

Monique Billings 
Points: 13
Rebounds: 02
Assists: 02
PPG: 7.6        RPG: 6.5      SPG: 1.2        BPG: 1.1
Monique is an inside player and moves wonderfully off the ball. She uses her athletic built to finish at the rim of the cuts and has the tendency to also pluck up rebounds. Monique has averaged 15.25 PPG for the last four games.

Elizabeth Williams
Points: 12
Rebounds: 09
Assists: 03
PPG: 5.9     RPG: 4.8     SPG: 1.1       BPG: 1.2
