The WNBA DFS Playbook is finally back, though just barely. We write a playbook for every WNBA DFS slate with three or more games, and while there are three games Sunday, one is at 3:00 pm EST and the others are in the evening. While it isn’t unusual for the sites to offer different slates in this situation, I was surprised to see DraftKings offer all three games while FanDuel has just the two late games. When a similar situation comes up for Premier League slates, it is usually the opposite. In any event, if you want to play any Mystics or Sky players, you’ll have to do it on DraftKings. Just be sure you come back in the evening to check lineups before the late games.

Sue BirdSEALA850024.55560023.69
Seattle will probably need Bird's shot creation and playmaking with Breanna Stewart out. The Storm are fighting to hold onto the third seed in the playoffs, and Bird has a good chance of playing 30ish minutes as a result. I'm not sure how high her ceiling is, but she has at least 20 fantasy points in six of her last eight games.
Shatori Walker-Kimbrough#N/A#N/A540010.55#N/A#N/A
So far this season we haven't seen any of the flashes of brilliance Walker-Kimbrough showed with Phoenix last season when she got to start. That being said, I think the potential is lurking, and at the very least, her minutes should be safe. She is a GPP play, but its not like any of the guards in her price range are safe. 
Kahleah Copper#N/A#N/A790024.77#N/A#N/A
Washington is 10th in fantasy points allowed to guards, and two of their best defenders are out for this game. Copper has at least 20 fantasy points in eight of her last 10 games, and she is averaging 27.9 fantasy points in two games against Washington this season.
Kayla McBrideMININD830024.33580023.53
McBride has scored at least 10 points in five consecutive games, averaging 28.7 fantasy points in that span. She looks like one of the safer mid-priced guards on either site.
Natasha Cloud#N/A#N/A900024.38#N/A#N/A
When Washington has managed to keep the game close, Natasha Cloud has been great. She has at least 28.5 fantasy points in four of her last five games, and the exception was when she played just 24 minutes at Seattle Tuesday. Washington is currently clinging to the final playoff spot and Cloud will likely play 30+ minutes in this game.
Jewell LoydSEALA1010031.85650031.01
Loyd is the top tier guard I trust the most, though I would rather play her on FanDuel where she is a bit underpriced. She scored 40 fantasy points in just 27 minutes on 7-15 shooting against Washington Tuesday. I don't expect her to be that efficient Sunday, but she should get all the minutes and shots she can handle with Breanna Stewart out.
Tiffany MitchellINDMIN760019.15520018.52
Minnesota is 11th in fantasy points allowed to guards, and Mitchell had 27.5 fantasy points against them on Friday. I don't expect her to shoot 60 percent from the field again, but she looks pretty safe in a good matchup.
Ezi MagbegorSEALA680014.77380015.40
Magbegor came in for Breanna Stewart when Stewart suffered her foot injury Tuesday. Magbegor finished with 25.5 fantasy points in 24 minutes, though most of that came in garbage time. Of course, the Sparks have lost six consecutive games, so garbage time could be on the horizon Sunday as well. It will be easier to trust Magbegor if she starts, but I do like that she played a few minutes next to Mercedes Russell after Stewart went down. The Sparks almost always have two bigs on the court, which could lead to more minutes from Magbegor.
Katie Lou SamuelsonSEALA720015.89410015.72
I was hoping for a better price on DraftKings, but she should get more minutes and shots Sunday, even if she comes off the bench. She has at least 20 fantasy points in four of her last six games, though most of her minutes Tuesday came after the game was out of hand. Even so, Samuelson can at least provide the size and floor spacing Seattle misses with Stewart out, and she might be the safest Storm player Sunday.
Mercedes RussellSEALA750019.03450019.33
Los Angeles is ninth in fantasy points allowed to forwards, which is the main reason Russell makes this list. She could get more minutes, shots and rebounds with Breanna Stewart out, but I wouldn't want to count on it. That being said, she is solid for fantasy and the upside is there.
Jantel LavenderINDMIN550013.67340012.83
Lavender played 20 minutes against Minnesota Friday, her most since before the Olympic Break. If she is healthy enough to play even more than that Sunday, she is a fantastic value. If she is capped at 20 minutes, she is still playable, coming off 26.75 fantasy points Friday. 
Theresa Plaisance#N/A#N/A730017.53#N/A#N/A
Plaisance scored 33.25 fantasy points in 25 minutes Friday after scoring 18.75 fantasy points in 24 minutes in her three previous games combined. She is a better GPP play, but it certainly helps that she is averaging 28.1 fantays points in 26.2 minutes on 33 percent shooting in two games against Chicago this season.
Tina Charles#N/A#N/A1100042.72#N/A#N/A
Charles is a GPP play. In her first game against Chicago with Elena Delle Donne and Myisha Hines-Allen out, Charles was shockingly quiet. In the rematch a month ago, she had 65.75 fantasy points. Charles has traditionally been a very tough matchup for Stefanie Dolson, and Charles should take a ton of shots Sunday. Its just a matter of how many of those shots she can make while getting all of the defensive attention.
Amanda Zahui BLASEA660021.05420021.23
Seattle is 10th in fantasy points allowed to forwards, and Amanda Zahui B is averaging 25.4 fantasy points in 25.3 minutes in two games agianst Seattle. She has also been much better at home this season. She really hasn't been good for about a month, but at her price, I am willing to bet on a bounceback, especially if Chiney Ogwumike is out again. 
Candace Parker#N/A#N/A1130033.88#N/A#N/A
Washington is 11th in fantasy points allowed to forwards, and they really don't have anyone to match up with Parker defensively right now. Parker has topped 40 fantasy points in three of her last four games, including her last game against Las Vegas when she shot just 4-13 from the field. I love players who can produce for fantasy even when they aren't shooting well, though I expect her to shoot better Sunday.
Nneka OgwumikeLASEA890027.87740027.63
Chasing Nneka's hot streaks hasn't gone well for me this season, so hoping she will top 27 fantasy points for the fourth straight game is risky. That being said, she is the cheapest of the top tier forwards on the slate and her minutes are safe, especially if Chiney Ogwumike is out again.
