Fantasy streamers: Layshia Clarendon (27.2% rostered in ESPN leagues) had been on a tear, had a down game, then bounced back with another solid performance in her last outing. All told, even with her 6-point performance against the Mercury on Wednesday, Clarendon has still averaged 15.0 PPG, 4.4 APG, 3.2 APG, 1.0 3PG and 0.6 SPG in 31.4 MPG in her last five games and is a viable streaming option Sunday. — Snellings

Rebecca Allen (35.3% rostered) is a role player for the Sun who can contribute modestly in several different categories. She is not someone you would stream with expectations she’ll have a monster game, but on a given day she has the potential to put 10 to 25 fantasy points on the board. Over her last seven games, Allen has averaged 9.3 PPG, 4.0 RPG, 1.4 BPG, 1.4 3PG, 1.3 APG and 1.1 SPG in 26.3 MPG. — Snellings
