WNBA DFS Core Plays & Cheat Sheets for August 26, 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!
Elena Delle Donne- DK: $8,300, FD: $8,200
I am not calling EDD a core play on FanDuel as she is the fifth-most expensive player on that site. With that said, I am still going to have plenty of exposure to her on that site. On DraftKings however, I really don’t see how you don’t have heavy exposure to her. DraftKings still have EDD priced down and she is only the 11th most expensive forward on that slate. That is just too cheap for a player who is as good as EDD is. Remember when healthy she is probably the best player in the WNBA. Now, I also understand that EDD has only played 39 total minutes in her two games back from injury but even with the lack of minutes, the production has been there. Delle Donne is averaging 17 points and four rebounds in those two games and is coming off a 26.2 DraftKings performance in her last game. The minutes will start to creep up for Delle Donne with the more games she plays and we could see her play minutes in the mid 20’s tonight especially with Tina Charles out for a second straight game.
Bella Alarie – DK: $5,600, FD: $3,600
Alarie is a great value on both sites tonight despite her putting up a dud in her last game. While Alarie only was able to produce 8.5 fantasy points in that game she still started and played 20 minutes. Alarie has now started and played at least 18 minutes in each of the Wings’ three games since the break. Besides the fact, we know that Alarie is going to play solid minutes which is not normally the case for cheaper players she did produce at a decent level in the first two games since the break. In those games, she averaged seven points, six rebounds, and a block while producing at least 15.8 fantasy points in each game. If we go back to before the break Alarie has now produced at least 15 fantasy points in three of her past four games. The only thing I am going to add on Alarie is that I do like her more on FanDuel where she is listed as a guard than I do on DraftKings where they have her listed as forward.
