WNBA DFS Picks: Tina Charles + More, DraftKings, FanDuel (FREE)

Nolan Kelly



The WNBA DFS Degenerate, Seth Stinehour, returns with his WNBA picks for DraftKings and FanDuel on June 15.

Okay so we have the last slate of WNBA of the year, and of course they put against NFL opening bunch of marketing geniuses these WNBA folks. Just a warning very few teams have anything to play for so the starting lineups are going to be of extreme performance and we should expect some weird stuff.

It is shorter for me to list the teams that have something to play for: Vegas, Chicago, Minnesota, Seattle

If Chicago wins and Vegas loses Chicago will get the 4 seed and Vegas will have to play a first round game so that is a fairly big deal. One other point about this Elizabeth Cambage left last game early with a foot injury and did not return we received no update as well. There not many plays that I think are safe today but some are safer than others.

New York Liberty

If Tina Charles gets 30 minutes this is a great matchup, draft position will be unaffected if the Liberty win so there is no reason for them to limit her. Every other Liberty is a roulette spin maybe Kia Nurse will score 60 again only to be stat corrected to 20 but at least we know she has that in her game. Han Xu is not nuts.

Atlanta Dream

If Breland is out again Elizabeth Williams and Marie Gulch make some sense. All the Dream guards are in good spots here this seems to be a game for Alex “Black Hole” Bentley to shoot 40 times. Renee Montgomery and Brittany Sykes are also strong plays.

Washington Mystics

Washington has everything clinched ard are a smart team I doubt their primary players get much run. Makes Myshia Hines-Allen a very intriguing GPP play as well as Shea Peddy.

Chicago Sky

Chicago is one of the few teams to have something to play for if they win and Vegas loses they can get the bye. So I expected their main players to get lots of run which means I like Courtney VanderSloot, Diamond DeShields, Stefanie Dolson, Cheyenne Parker and Astou Ndour, stack them up anyway you want.

Minnesota Lynx

 Minnesota clinches a home playoff game with a win, so I expect them to play their main players so Napheesa Collier is probably my favorite but Sylvia Fowles and Odyssey Sims are also strong plays here.

LA Sparks

Sparks have nothing to play for an are an older team, as well as the matchup being less than ideal. That being said if they announce resting players really like Kalani Brown, Marie Vadeeva and Marina Mabrey here.

Dallas Wings

Well we have the ultimate Arike Ogbunwale spot last home game of the year she may shoot 70 times, the only reason to not go all is Seattle does have something to play for. Other than that Isabelle Harrison is in a nice spot as well.

Seattle Storm

If Natasha Howard is getting full run I would like her a lot. I do worry about them backing off if they see the Sparks playing their scrubs. Again love Jordin Canada if she gets full run Arike is a turnover machine, also Jewel Lloyd in a nice spot as well.

Las Vegas Aces

If Elizabeth Cambage is out stack Vegas: also if she is out Aja Wilson should be in 80% of your lineups. Tamara Young hurt herself last game, that would be huge for Kelsey Plum, Kayla McBride, and Jackie Young. Do not forget about Deraica Hamby as well, just stack Vegas.

Phoenix Mercury

Really not on them they are an old team so will rest their players. Their young players are not good.

Connecticut Sun

These team is the one I must confident about resting their players so for this I love Natasha Hiedman, Rachel BanhamR, Morgan Tuck and Briona Jones, load them up. I would be suprised if Sun starters player more than 10 minutes.

Indiana Fever

Not touching their guards on this slate, but man this is such a smash spot for Teira McCowan she might be the best stud on the slate, I hate that Achowa is back but she is a strong play.

Conclusion: Do not play if you are going to be distracted by NFL news will come in from 3:30-4, also its stars and scrubs, no reason to go mid range.

I've been obsessed with fantasy sports since as long as I can remember. Back in 1993, while seated in the last row of Mr. MacMillan's math class, I'm fairly certain a few buddies of mine and I invented daily fantasy sports -- popping down our fivers and using nothing more than a newspaper box score, we'd make our NHL player picks for the night's action. Twenty years later I started out playing DFS on DraftStreet, when three-max tourneys with 490 people were a big deal, and I've been hooked ever since. More than anything, I'm interested in getting better as a player, and in helping you become a better player. Armed with Awesemo's grades and the projections from our experts, we're here to help you take the next step. You can contact me by emailing
