WNBA DFS Picks: So we have a two game WNBA slate, the most important news is realize this slate starts at 6:30. The other important news, is Fanduel and DraftKings have vastly different pricing. On DraftKings you should love every player in your lineup, on FanDuel you are probably going to be playing at least one player who will flirt with a zero.

Connecticut Sun Guards
The Sun have not played for over a week. They will be well rested and should run their starters into the ground. The matchup in the back court is not a strong one, and I do not like any of their guards for the most part on FanDuel. But on DraftKings the price on Jasmine Thomas is very playable, and to be honest with the loose cap Courtney Williams is a strong play. On FanDuel if I am spending at guard I prefer other plays. Shekinna Stricklen is a viable value play as she is probably in line for 20 minutes or so.
Connecticut Sun Forwards
This is an awful matchup for Jonquel Jones and Alyssa Thomas and of the studs on the slate, they are my least favorites. But if choosing I would have exposure on Jonquel this is the playoffs and she should see close to full run. On FanDuel, Morgan Tuck is an interesting value play especially if Jonquel gets in foul trouble.
LA Sparks Guards
Chelsea Gray is probably the number one guard play on the slate if you are spending up, the matchup is not intimidating at all. She will get all the run she can handle. I have a feeling the Sparks value guards maybe a trap Alaina Beard and Tiffany Ruffin-Pratt each put up decent scores against Seattle and while I think the minutes are real the production was high for both of them on a per minute basis. If forced to choose on FanDuel I lean TRP, I would not touch either on DraftKings. Riqua Williams to be is very interesting specifically on FanDuel she is only 5.2 and she could get hot but she has been capped at 22 minutes the last three games.
LA Sparks Forwards
The price on Nneka Owgumike is egrerious on both sites Nneka is going to get 30 minutes if this game stays close, she is a cash play. I love Candace Parker as well for reasons I detailed earlier Fisher was limiting their minutes during the regular season, the minutes cap is now lifted. Play them together on DraftKings as both their prices are too low.
Las Vegas Guards
The last game gave us Lambeer’s playoff rotations for his guards with Kelsey Plum and Kayla McBride emerging as the two he would trust, they are both under priced even though it is a difficult matchup. That being said if you are playing on FanDuel specifically I like taking a shot on Sugar Rodgers, Epiphany Prince or Tamara Young under the guise that one of them might make the first their first two shots and Lambeer being the moron he is will leave them in for 25 minutes. Jackee Young only played four minutes, yes she is a good player she was the first overall pick, but remember Lambeer is a moron so do not play her.
Las Vegas Forwards
Elizabeth Cambage went nuts against Chicago, a couple things to keep in mind Chicago front court defense stinks. If this game stays close, expect 35 minutes or so, and 35 minutes of Cambage is exciting. The price on Cambage on DraftKings is absurdly low play her I like the idea of fading on FanDuel though. I am not playing Aja Wilson when she is priced above Cambage.
D’Aerica Hamby is coming off hitting a halfcourt shot to advance Vegas in the playoffs, the minutes are real, the matchup is just not that great and its hard to justify that spend. So I expect JSu Park to be kinda of chalky on FanDuel since she is 3k and played a whole 4 minutes last game and I am here for it. The pricing is crazy tight the only way to get three studs in the lineup is really to play her, so giddy up.
Washington Mystics Guards
Now, this is very dependant on if Kristi Toliver plays or not. If Toliver is in might interest in Natasha Cloud and Ariel Atkins decreases a lot. But if Toliver is out I like them both I prefer Cloud over Atkins since her minutes are more secure. Shatori Kimborough in FanDuel GPPs I like as well.
Washington Mystic Forwards
We do not know who the Mystics will start yet as that is heavily dependant on Toliver. If we find out in advance that either Aerial Powers or Emma Messeman, I would the love the one that starts.. If Powers does not start I would still like her and if Messeman does not start I have zero interest. LaToya Sanders is strong FanDuel play, I have written that forty times this year. Elena Delle Donne is the number one play on the slate, on FanDuel I would do everything I can to get her in the lineup. However, on DraftKings she is a full 2k above Cambage, Parker, Nneka and in order to fit her in you have to play some value plays that are not ideal. So I think on DraftKings she is more a GPP play than cash play but by all means get her in your lineup.
