The Atlanta Dream have some buzz with a young and exciting roster. They enter the 2023 WNBA season with +4000 title odds, according to FanDuel.

Buy your Dream gear now — this is going to be the trendiest team of 2023.
The roster is loaded with two-way talent, starting with their No. 1 overall pick from last season, Rhyne Howard, who cruised to Rookie of the Year while making an All-Star Game appearance along the way. Her ceiling is incredible. She averaged 19.4 points, 4.7 rebounds and 3.2 assists after the All-Star Game last season, so keep an eye on her points prop early in the season.
My favorite non-Liberty move made all offseason was the Dream’s acquisition of Allisha Gray. The addition of Gray, alongside a year of growth from Howard and a year of continuity from the rest of the roster, moves the Dream from fringe playoff team to the tier just below the superteams for me. Gray proved herself to be an advanced metrics darling in Dallas with some of the best win share rates and on-off stats season after season.
I also have an incredible amount of faith in Head Coach Tanisha Wright, who finished second in the Coach of the Year voting last season and would be my bet to win this year (if the books post that award market). She is backed by a stellar front office. Overall, the vibes in Atlanta are excellent.
There’s really no weak spot on this roster. The dup of Cheyenne Parker and Monique Billings is a very strong two-way frontcourt, and I’ll be looking for Aari McDonald to take over the starting point guard role from Danielle Robinson at some point this season. If she does, note that in limited time as a starter last season, McDonald averaged 16 points and five assists per game.
The one facet of the game the Dream needs to work on is fouling less. They gave away too many points at the stripe last season, although some of that was simply because of playing good, strong physical defense.
This is a team I will be all over in 2023 and looking to play pretty much any way I can. I project them at 24-16, well over their listed total of 18.5 at FanDuel.
