WNBA DFS Picks: So we have a one-game showdown slate thanks to Derek Fisher deciding to intentionally lose game three versus the Suns. So one of the issues with this slate is that these teams are now down to basically playing five or six people. Also, the pricing on FanDuel makes it so you have to take a zero essentially.

Las Vegas Guards
Kelsey Plum and Kayla McBride got over 30 minutes. I doubt that changes, as Plum is actually priced over McBride on FanDuel. My slight lean is McBride there, now that Jackie Young is getting 15 minutes. She is an interesting GPP play, but I would rather go to Sugar Rodgers.
Las Vegas Forwards
Elizabeth Cambage and A’ja Wilson both had strong games, but ideally I prefer getting up to EDD on FanDuel. On DraftKings, where you can fit both, I tend to favor Cambage. I also like Dearica Hamby as her minutes were decreased due to blowout last game. I expect if this stays close, she will approach 30 minutes. And of course on FanDuel, everybody’s favorite zero Ji-su Park is a strong play as she could have three or four minutes.
Washington Mystics Guards
Kristi Toliver spiked to 27 minutes last game, and if she is going to get minutes like that, she is the strongest value play on the slate by a large margin. The other Mystic guard whose minutes are secure is Natasha Cloud. You can play her and Toliver together, something I think few will do. Ariel Atkins was held to 20 minutes again and seems to have lost time to Toliver. On DraftKings, she interests me more than on FanDuel.
Washington Mystic Forwards
Elena Delle Donne is the top play on the slate, its not close. I expect Washington to ride her a ton in this game and for her to approach 40 minutes. LaToya Sanders saw her minutes decrease last game, mostly game flow-related. I still like her a ton. Again, Emma Meesseman could be in line for close to 40 minutes if this game stays close, so she is a strong play. If you are dart throwing, I do not mind tossing one at Aerial Powers, as there is a scenario where she gets hot and keeps Sanders and Atkins on the bench.
