WNBA DFS Core Plays & Cheat Sheets for September 12, 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!
After several two-game slates in a row, we finally have a three-game slate to work with today. Well, we finally have a three-game slate on DraftKings as FanDuel decided to leave off the WAS/CHI early game off their main slate. With there being at least one three-game slate today I did decide to do a Cores Play article. It will focus mainly on DraftKings due to FanDuel only having the two-game slate.
Leilani Mitchell- DK: $4,800, FD: N/A
Mitchell has done squat lately for the Mystics as she has not produced more than 16 fantasy points in 12 straight games. With that being said I really like Mitchell today as she started the Mystics last game due to all of the injuries they are dealing with and is expected to start again today. Mithcell has started ten games this season. In those ten games, Mitchell is averaging 8.4 points, 2.1 rebounds, 4.1 assists, a steal+block, and 18.3 fantasy points in 30.7 minutes of action. If Mitchell produces in the 18 fantasy point range again today she will easily pay off her salary and will be one of the best points per dollar plays on this slate.
Ezi Magbegor- DK: $6,80, FD: $3,80
The big news to drop in the WNBA in the past week is Breanna Stewart is going to miss the rest of the regular season and possibly the playoffs. Stewart is one of the top players in the WNBA and losing her is a big loss for the Storm and the league. With Stewart out that does open up some value with Magbegor. Magbegor should get the start for Stewart and play minutes in the upper 20s to low 30s. Magbegor is not just going to play big minutes but she is likely to put up big numbers as she is averaging 1.06 fantasy points per minute this season and has shown several times throughout this season that she can produce when given the minutes.
