WNBA DFS Core Plays & Cheat Sheets for June 27, 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 its slates for tonight’s contests. While the players in this article are going to be focused on DraftKings for that reason typically my favorite players do not change from site to site for WNBA. Therefore when FanDuel does release its slates you can use the players in this article for your Core.
The Mercury worked out a deal with Tina Charles that allows her to become a free agent. In Saturday’s game with Charles out Cunningham got the start and played well. In her 27 minutes, Cunningham went for 14 points, six rebounds, and an assist on her way to 21.7 fantasy points. That was Cunningham’s third start of the season for the Mercury and in her previous two starts, Cunningham averaged 20.4 fantasy points. Those previous starts along with her elite match-up against a Fever team that has allowed the most points per game this season makes Cunningham my top value play on this two-game slate.
Sykes started the season in the starting lineup for the Sparks then spent some time coming off the bench but is now back in the starting lineup. It is the way Sykes has played in her three games since her return to the starting lineup that has me excited about Sykes tonight. In those three games, Sykes is averaging 11.67 points, 3.33 rebounds, 4.67 assists, and two steals+blocks. Sykes has at least 15 fantasy points in each of those three games and has at least 28 fantasy points in back-to-back games. Tonight even in a not so great match-up against the Aces I don’t see why Sykes cannot have another strong game especially if the Sparks are shorthanded with Chiney Ogwumike and Jordin Canada both questionable to play tonight.
