Before we begin, this WNBA DFS slate will be heavily dependant on three injuries of players that missed last game: Amanda Zahui, Damaris Dantas and Asia Durr. Lucky for us all three of those are playing in the early game.

New York Liberty Guards
Bria Hartley is the player that benefited most from Asia Durr missing last game and she exploded for 32 minutes. If Bria Hartley is chalk, the pivot to Kia Nurse makes a lot of sense. Nurse has gotten over 25 minutes the last two games but has shot poorly. It is a two game slate. Tanisha Wright will start and play about 20 minutes. She is in play at her cheap price as well.
New York Liberty Forwards
Amanda Zahui is in concussion protocol. Last game she seemed on track to a big game before concussion hit. If we were to get word 15-20 minutes before the game that she is playing I would like her a lot in GPPs and her reduced price tag. If she misses, Nayo Raincock-Ekuwe would benefit. She got 19 minutes last game and is priced near the min. Additionally, if Durr and Zahui were to miss that would secure Rebecca Allen’s minutes, though her price is elevated making me less interested. Tina Charles is at home and against Zahui would have massive usage. She is a strong play here even in a tough matchup.
Minnesota Lynx Guards
Odyssey Sims is in a prime spot against the Liberty. On the road her minutes are secure. Danielle Robinson in GPPs is viable as well. If you are looking for a low owned GPP play who is inexpensive Lexi Brown is really cheap and has gotten 18 minutes the last two games. She could break the slate. If Dantas were to miss, Stephanie Talbot would immediately become an extremely strong play as she would start and get 20 minutes plus.
Minnesota Lynx Forwards
Sylvia Fowles is in a strong spot here versus the Liberty. I like her a ton. I prefer Fowles since Napheesa Collier is priced close to her, as I feel Fowles is a strong player on the road. Temi Fegbenle, if Dantas were to miss, would become the strongest value play on the slate, and fairly close to a lock on the FanDuel.
Atlanta Dream Guards
Alex Bentley missed last game for a personal issue. Assuming she is back my interest in Dream guards is fairly low. My favorites would be Bentley or Renee Montgomery in GPPs, trying to take advantage of low ownership and hope one gets hot.
Atlanta Dream Forwards
Elizabeth Williams and Jessica Breland are both getting the same amount of time recently. This is not an easy matchup for either but Elizabeth Williams is extremely playable on FanDuel at that price. I hope recency bias keeps her ownership low. Monique Billings is a strong GPP play they will need her size against Cambage.
Las Vegas Forwards
Elizabeth Cambage is playing at home versus Atlanta with Aja Wilson out. Do not over think it. Dearica Hamby is a strong play for the same reasons Cambage is.
Las Vegas Guards
I am still coming down from the high that was that Kelsey Plum game. Greatness always rises to the top. Anyways she is absurdly low priced on FanDuel. You should lock her there. On DraftKings she is underpriced and the fade is viable. Jackie Young too is underpriced for a rookie in this strong matchup. I also like Kayla McBride a bunch here as well.
Cash Core: Cambage, Hamby, Temi, Talbot, Plum, Wright, Ekunwe,
GPP: Williams, Monty, Bentley, McBride, Young, Charles, Fowles, Collier, Sims
