FanDuel & DraftKings Expert WNBA DFS Cash Game & GPP Lineup Picks for Sunday, August 11, 2019.
Daily fantasy basketball lineup advice, picks and plays (8/11) to help you win your WNBA DFS contests.
Let’s take a closer look at some plays for today’s contests with our “Fearsome 4” picks for the day’s slate.
Just like in the NBA it is important to follow the news when it comes to WNBA. While WNBA news 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 also will give you projected starting lineups and confirmed starting lineups which are really hard to come by. Another source I like to use is following the teams beat writers on Twitter.
Cheyenne Parker, F, CHI, $4,900
Parker is one of my favorite players on this slate. Parker is averaging 1.06 fantasy points per minute this season and should be in line for minutes in the upper 20s to lower 30s as Jantel Lavender is ruled out for today’s game. I also like the match-up for Parker as the Sparks rank in the middle of the pack in points allowed per game and are allowing the second-most rebounds per game this season.
Natasha Cloud, G, WAS, $5,600
Cloud has played at least 29 minutes in nine of her past ten games. In those ten games, Cloud is averaging 8.3 points, 2.5 rebounds, five assists, a steal, and 20.4 fantasy points. Today I am expecting a similar performance as he takes on a Lynx team that she produced 21.9 fantasy points again earlier in the season. Cloud would also get a boost if Kristi Toliver who is currently listed as questionable were to miss today’s game.
Tina Charles, F, NY, $7,700
I really love what we have seen from Charles lately. Charles has at least 20 points in each of her past two games and has two double-doubles in her past four games. Charles has produced at least 38 fantasy points in three of her past four games. Charles is not only playing well but she will get a boost with Amanda Zahui B out for today’s game.
Tamera Young, G, LV, $5,400
I like what we have seen from Young lately. Young has played at least 20 minutes in each of her past four games. In those games, Young is averaging 10.8 points, five rebounds, 3.3 assists, and 1.3 steals. Young has at least 25 fantasy points in three of those four games and I am expecting a similar performance from her today even in a not so great match-up against the Sun.
If you roster these four players that leaves you $5,467 salary for your final three spots on FanDuel.
Natasha Cloud, G, WAS, $7,300 & Cheyenne Parker, F, CHI, $6,000
I talked about both of these ladies in the FanDuel portion of this article.
Candace Parker, F, LA, $10,200
Parker returned to the Sparks lineups three games ago and has looked great. In those three games, she is averaging 16.3 points, 8.3 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 1.7 blocks, and 1.7 steals. Parker has at least 35 fantasy points in each of those games and is averaging 38.8 fantasy points in those games. There is no reason to believe we don’t see similar production from Parker today as she faces a Sky team that allows the second-most points per game and fourth-most rebounds per game this season.
If you roster these four players that leaves you $8,833 in salary for your final three spots on DraftKings.
