The Aces are a fantasy basketball powerhouse. Managers should start Plum, A’ja Wilson, Jackie Young, Dearica Hamby, and Chelsea Gray. This season, all five players average 25.5 or more fantasy points. From a streaming perspective, if Young (who is dealing with a lower leg injury) is ruled out, then Theresa Plaisance is someone you shoulder consider. She started against the Wings on Sunday and scored 15 fantasy points. Plaisance is available in 95% of leagues.
