Let’s take a closer look at some plays for today’s contests with our “Fearsome 4” picks for the day’s slate.
As promised we are going to change up this article a bit by giving you our core plays for each site. On FanDuel we will give you our core four plays with them having seven roster spots and on DraftKings we will give you our core three plays with only six roster spots on that site. Keep in mind that some of the plays may be the same for both sites.
Just like in the NBA it is important to follow the news when it comes to WNBA. While WNBA is hard to come by at times there are a couple of good resources for news out there. One is Rotowire.com. While I am not a fan in general of Rotowire they are a great news source for WNBA injuries. They all will give you projected starting lineups and confirmed starting lineups which is really hard to come by. Another source I like to use is following the teams beat writers on Twitter.
Elena Delle Donne, F, WAS, $8,500
EDD is by far my favorite player on this slate for a couple of reasons. The first is Delle Donne is playing great basketball. Delle Donne has two straight 20/10 games and has produced at least 37 fantasy points in four of her past six games. The second reason is due to the match-up against the Sky. The Sky are one of the worst defensive teams in the WNBA. Last season they allowed the most points per game and most fantasy points per game and this season they are allowing the fourth most points per game and rank in the bottom half of the league in fantasy points allowed per game to forwards. Delle Donne has also played very well against her former team since joining the Mystics. Last season in their three meetings Delle Donne averaged 48.2 fantasy points and this season she had 26.4 fantasy points in just 22 minutes of action.
Kaela Davis, G, DAL, $3,700
Davis did not work out in her last game as she had negative fantasy points in eight minutes of action but I am not that worried about that game as she had been playing great. Davis had played at least 20 minutes with double-digit fantasy points in each of her four previous games and that is the kind of production I think we see from her today. Even if Davis bombs again she is not going to hurt us but oh so bad as she is dirt cheap at only $3,700 in salary.
Shekinna Stricklen, G, CON, $5,000
Stricklen only played 15 minutes in the Sun last game which lead her to only producing 1.5 fantasy points but that shouldn’t have you worried about her today as she had been playing great. Stricklen had played at least 27 minutes in each of her previous three games and had produced at least 17 fantasy points in six of her previous seven games. While I don’t love the match-up against the Wings who are good on the defensive end of the court I expect Stricklen goes back to producing in the 15 to 20 fantasy point range which would pay off her salary.
Azura Stevens, F, DAL, $5,300
In the two games since Glory Johnson left for Europe, Stevens is averaging just over 20 minutes a game. In those games, she is averaging six points, six rebounds, a steal, and three blocks. Stevens has at least 20 fantasy points in both of those games and has at least 16 fantasy points in five of her seven games this season. While there is a risk with Stevens today I am more than willing to take the risk with her at her salary.
If you roster these four players that leaves you $5,833 in salary for your final three spots on FanDuel.
I always normally try to give you at least one different player for DraftKings but I cannot do it today. The trio of Delle Donne, Stricklen and Stevens are where I am starting my lineups on both sites today.
If you roster these three players that leaves you $8,933 in salary for your final three spots on DraftKings.
