Here's what to look for during today's slate:

Chicago Sky at Minnesota Lynx
1 p.m., Target Center, Minneapolis

Line: Sky (-2.5)
Money line: Sky (-140), Lynx (+118)
Total: 171.5 points
BPI Win%: Lynx (52.7%)

Fantasy Need to Know: The Sky (15-5) are looking for their third win of the season against the Lynx (7-15). Candace Parker is still the top fantasy option on the team and has averaged 32.5 fantasy points per game this season. Parker is the first player in WNBA history to surpass 6,000 points, 3,000 rebounds, and 1,500 assists. Kahleah Copper, Emma Meesseman, Parker, and Courtney Vandersloot should be included in all fantasy lineups. They each have averaged at least 23 fantasy points per game.

Allie Quigley (31.4% available) is also a great option for fantasy managers. Quigley has been on a tear recently, scoring 20 or more fantasy points in four of her past five games. Azura Stevens (51.3% available) is another quality streamer for the Sky. She has averaged 17 fantasy points and 20.3 MPG over the past three games.

The Lynx have won three of their past five games, defeating the Aces, Wings and Mercury. Getting Sylvia Fowles back was a big reason why as she averaged 23.4 fantasy points per game over that span.

Aerial Powers is also a must-start fantasy option for Minnesota. Powers, Fowles and Moriah Jefferson (44.9% available) have all averaged at least 25 fantasy points per game this season. -- Eric Moody

Best bet: Under 171.5

The total has gone over in only four of the Lynx's past 11 games at home. There is a good chance this game will be low scoring because Minnesota and Chicago are both playing well and the Sky are one of the best defensive teams in the WNBA. -- Moody

Washington Mystics at Atlanta Dream
8 p.m., Gateway Center Arena, Atlanta

Line: Mystics (-5.5)
Money line: Mystics (-220), Dream (+180)
Total: 156 points
BPI Win%: Dream (52%)

Questionable: Elena Delle Donne

Ruled Out: Nia Coffey

Fantasy Need to Know: The Mystics (13-10) will play the Dream (10-11) for the fourth time this after beating them twice in May and once in June. The top fantasy option for Washington is Elena Delle Donne, even though she has yet to play more than three consecutive games this season. Ariel Atkins, Natasha Cloud, and Myisha Hines-Allen are also quality fantasy contributors.

The Dream enter Wednesday night's matchup with confidence after winning their past two games over the Storm and Liberty. Rhyne Howard and Cheyenne Parker remain the top fantasy options for the Dream. Howard was recently named WNBA Rookie of the Month for the second consecutive month. Aari McDonald (56% available) also projects reliable streamer and has averaged 21.5 fantasy points per game this season. -- Moody

Best bet: Mystics -5.5

The Mystics have averaged 79.3 PPG this season but their defense will be a difference maker in this game. It shouldn't be difficult for Washington to slow down the Dream's offense as they rank second in the WNBA in defensive rating (95.5.) -- Moody

New York Liberty at Las Vegas Aces
10 p.m., Michelob Ultra Arena, Las Vegas

Line: Aces (-10.5)
Money line: Aces (-600), Liberty (+430)
Total: 169.5 points
BPI Win%: Aces (80.4%)

Ruled Out: Rebecca Allen

Fantasy Need to Know: The Aces are the best team in the WNBA right now. They lead the league in offensive rating (106.4) and like to push the pace. Las Vegas' top fantasy option is A'ja Wilson, who has averaged 37.0 fantasy points per game this season. Wilson, Kelsey Plum, Jackie Young, Chelsea Gray and Dearica Hamby are all must start fantasy options for the Aces and have averaged 25 or more fantasy points per game.

The Liberty enter Michelob Ultra Arena on a two-game losing streak, ranking 10th in offensive rating (96.0) and seventh in defensive rating (100.8). Despite their struggles, Sabrina Ionescu continues to be a bright spot for New York, averaging 36 or more fantasy points in four of her past five games.

While Ionescu and Natasha Howard are the most reliable options for the Liberty, Stefanie Dolson (77.6% available) could be a quality streamer after posting 30 fantasy points in two of her past four games. -- Moody

Best bet: Aces -10.0

The Aces should be able to bounce back nicely against a Liberty team who has struggled on defense all season. Las Vegas leads the WNBA in PPG (89) and ranks second in 3-point percentage (36%). -- Moody
