Rules are no different than the NBA for scoring, and both sites will have late swap! GPP’s are getting bigger, as the addition of WNBA to DraftKings has certainly boomed the WNBA product. I’ve pushed and pushed to get more content for it on the site, and we’ll continue on with this Saturday slate, featuring a $30K GPP on DraftKings. Both sites have put out some good GPP’s, and tonight, there are a couple inactives, including one major one, so we’ll look for some value through that.
DAL @ CON
Connecticut Sun: Jasmine Thomas (OUT)
Players to Target
Dallas Wings: Skylar Diggins-Smith, Karima Christmas-Kelly
Connecticut Sun: Jonquel Jones, Alyssa Thomas, Courtney Williams
This game doesn’t feature a whole lot outside of the two Sun bigs. Both Jonquel Jones and Alyssa Thomas sport two of the best matchups on the slate, as the Wings bigs have been the worst defensive players in the league this season. Glory Johnson owns a WNBA worst 107.6 Defensive Rating, and she should be on Jonquel Jones, while Alyssa Thomas will see Aeriel Powers who owns a 107.5 Defensive Rating. They’re both expensive, but stacking the pair is a very good strategy as both have a shot at posting double-doubles. Jonquel herself has gone back to her 20-15 games. With Jasmine Thomas out, I do like Courtney Williams. She’s still cheap and got a boost in minutes without Thomas. Not only a boost in minutes, but she had 21 FGA’s, essentially taking any of Jasmine Thomas’ usage, going for 42 DK Points, or nearly 6x value. Dallas as a team struggles defensively, so she too has a great matchup, likely against Alisha Gray.
