The only constant in sports (and life) is change. While consistency is key to a winning strategy, the ebb and flow of production often can't be avoided. Tracking the endless ups and downs over 40 games and nearly four months can become a heady operation. Segmenting the journey, however, into weekly updates allows managers to live (and play) in the now. That's exactly what my Risers and Fallers column aims to accomplish.


Dana Evans, Guard, Chicago Sky (11.5% rostered, +1.8)

It's still early but the forecast calls for surprisingly blue skies ahead in Chicago. Despite key departures, the Sky have remained competitive, winning three of their past four games and recording a top-four field goal percentage (43.2%). James Wade has engineered a fluid offense (Top 3 in assist percentage, 71.7%) which has given Dana Evans an intriguing role.

Even with Marina Mabrey back in the fold, Evans posted double-digit points in three straight efforts. The Louisville product has converted inside the arc at an impressive clip (61.1% over her past three) while logging over 20 minutes off the bench in back-to-back games. Her fantasy relevance is on the up assuming her playing time sticks.
