WNBA DFS Core Plays & Cheat Sheets for August 19, 2021 – FanDuel & DraftKings
Looking for a quick consolidated list of options to play today? Let’s take a look at our WNBA Cheat Sheets for the 2 major contest providers FanDuel & DraftKings to help navigate today’s slate!
Sophie Cunningham- DK: $5,600, FD: $4,200
Cunningham is an easy pick as a core play tonight as she is dirt cheap on both sites and playing great basketball in her two games since the Olympic Break. Cunningham has played 23 minutes in both of those games and is averaging 12.5 points, two rebounds, an assist, a steal, and a block. Cunningham has at least 18 fantasy points in both of those games and in three of her past four games. Cunningham is not only playing great relative to her salary but she should also be in line for a big boost tonight if Skylar Diggins-Smith who is currently listed as questionable with an ankle injury is out for tonight’s contest.
Nneka Ogwumike – DK: $9,400, FD: $7,200
Ogwumike struggled in her first game since June 1st with only 24.75 fantasy points but bounced back nicely in her second game on Tuesday. In that game, Ogwumike had a near triple-double with a 13/9/9 stat line including a steal on her way to 39.25 fantasy points. Tonight I am expecting a repeat performance as this is the exact same situation for Ogwumike as she faces the Dream who allows the most points per game and second-most rebounds per game at home for the second-straight game.
Candice Dupree – DK: $6,400, FD: $5,100
I had Dupree as a core play of mine on Tuesday and she did not disappoint having a huge game with 12 points and eight rebounds on her way to 29 fantasy points in 36 minutes of action. Dupree has now started and played at least 25 minutes in each of the Dream’s two games since the break. Tonight we should see her start and play heavy minutes once again and there really is no reason to believe that she doesn’t produce in the 25 plus fantasy point range again as the Dream plays the Sparks for the second-straight game.
