WNBA DFS Core Plays & Cheat Sheets for June 17, 2022 – 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!
As of this writing, FanDuel has not released today’s WNBA slate for their site. Due to that reason, I am using DraftKings scoring and salaries exclusively for this article.
Ogunbowale minus a dud against the Storm has played really well this month. In her other four games this month Ogunbowale has produced at least 32 fantasy points with three games over 35 fantasy points. Those performances are enough to make her one of my top guards on this slate but what really sets her apart for me is her match-up against the Mercury. The Mercury are allowing the third-most points per game this season and when Ogunbowale faced them earlier in the season she dominated. In that game, she had 37 points, four rebounds, five assists, and a block on her way to 54 DraftKings points. If we go back to the previous seasons we also will see that Ogunbowale always seems to play well against the Mercury with at least 25 fantasy points in each of her previous seven contests against them with at least 35 fantasy points in three of her previous five games against them.
Stevens is a bit of a risk tonight as we don’t really know what we are going to get from her as she has been really inconsistent this season. With that said I am willing to take the risk on her tonight as she has played fairly well as of late. Stevens has played at least 20 minutes while producing at least 18 fantasy points in two of her last three games.
I normally try to avoid giving you two really expensive players in this article as it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that the expensive players on a slate are normally the best plays. With that said I couldn’t help myself with Jones. Jones has at least 34 fantasy points in five of her past six games and gets a fantastic match-up against the Storm. Seattle doesn’t allow a lot of points per game with the third-fewest points allowed per game this season but when they do give up points it is in the paint as they have allowed the third-most points per game in the paint this season. They also don’t rebound the ball well at all as they have the second-worst team rebounding rate and have allowed the second-most rebounds per game this season. In their only other meeting this year Jones went for 25/8/6 with three steals and a block on her way to 51.5 fantasy points. If we go back to last season that was the second straight game that Jones has produced over 50 fantasy points against the Storm.
