Fantasy Need to Know: Breanna Stewart was sensational on Saturday helping the Storm clinch a playoff spot with a win over the Mystics. She has averaged 38.6 fantasy points per game as the top option for Seattle all season. Stewart, Tina Charles, Jewell Loyd, Ezi Magbegor and Sue Bird are must-start options on the Storm, while Gabby Williams (55.6% available) is the top streamer.

Elena Delle Donne continues to be the best player on the Mystics. She has 34 or more fantasy points in seven of her last eight games. Natasha Cloud, Ariel Atkins and Myisha Hines-Allen are also top options for the Mystics and Shakira Austin (63.9% available) should be on the streaming radar. She has scored 21 or more fantasy points in her past two games. -- Eric Moody

Best bet: Mystics -2.0

The Storm defeated the Mystics Saturday thanks to a big second-half run. Washington is now one game behind Seattle and will be looking for a win on their home court. The Mystics are a much stronger team defensively than offensively and the Storm rank seventh in the WNBA in offensive rating (100.3). I expect the Mystics to cover. -- Moody

Minnesota Lynx at Los Angeles Sparks
7:00 p.m., Crypto.com Arena, Los Angeles

Line: Lynx (-1.0)
Money line: Lynx (-120), Sparks (+100)
Total: 166.5 points
BPI Win%: Lynx (52.1%)

Questionable: Jessica Shepard

Ruled Out: Damiris Dantas

Fantasy Need to Know: Sylvia Fowles has been the top fantasy option for the Lynx this season. She has averaged 30.2 fantasy points per game, with 11 double doubles, tied for second on the team with Alyssa Thomas. Only Las Vegas Aces' guard A'ja Wilson has more (14). The Lynx are 6-5 when Fowles records a double-double and 5-14 when she doesn't. Aerial Powers, Moriah Jefferson, Kayla McBride and Jessica Shepard are also option for your starting lineup on the Lynx. Jefferson (68.4% available) should be prioritized as a streamer. The Lynx rank fourth in offensive rating (102.7), but are ninth in defensive rating (104.1). -- Moody

Nneka Ogwumike is the top fantasy option on the Sparks. She has averaged 32.3 fantasy points per game. Ogwumike, Brittney Sykes, Jordin Canada, Katie Lou Samuelson and Chiney Ogwumike also belong in fantasy lineups. With Liz Cambage no longer on the team, Chiney Ogwumike (63.6% available) has seen here minutes increase. Katie Lou Samuelson (68.7% available) is another good streaming options for tonight. -- Moody

Best bet: Lynx +1.0

The Sparks have ranked 10th in offensive rating (95.9) and ninth in defensive rating (104.1) over their past three games. Minnesota's offense could prove problematic for Los Angeles. -- Moody
