WNBA Daily Fantasy Lineup Picks (6/19/18): WNBA DFS Advice for DraftKings and FanDuel


There are five games in the WNBA on Tuesday, with just two teams -- Connecticut and Phoenix -- sitting this one out. With those two teams representing two of the four best records in the league, it leaves us with a pretty wide open slate of games. Picking a DFS lineup won't be the easiest task.

That's why RotoBaller is here, though! Let's look at these five games and think about what players should excel. In this article, I'll be providing you with some daily fantasy WNBA lineup picks for DraftKings and FanDuel on 6/19/18. These lineups picks will range from elite players to mid-priced options and value plays.

WNBA - DFS Guards

Jewell Loyd (G, Seattle Storm) – vs Las Vegas Aces (DK: $9,400, FD: $7,700)

It's been a bit of an up and down run for Loyd as of late, with her DFS scoring dropping a few points over the past couple of weeks, but the best time to get things back on track is a matchup with the Aces, who have shown improvement recently but still allow the second most points per game in the league and allow opponents to hit a league high 7.9 three pointers per game. That should work out well for Loyd, who takes 5.5 threes per game and is currently hitting 41 percent of them.

Courtney Vandersloot (G, Chicago Sky) – @ Washington Mystics (DK: $9,200, FD: $6,800)

The Mystics allow teams to shoot 34.3 percent from deep, the third highest rate in the league (and the highest of any team playing on Tuesday, as the only teams allowing a higher three point field goal percentage are Connecticut and Phoenix). Vandersloot is hitting 46.7 percent of her threes this season, though she was 0-for-3 from deep against the Sparks on Sunday. In six games, Vandersloot hasn't been the fantasy lock she's been in past seasons, but the signs are encouraging that the eighth year guard will have a solid night against Washington.

Kayla McBride (G, Las Vegas Aces) – @ Seattle Storm (DK: $9,100, FD: $4,700)

McBride is available at a good discount in FanDuel leagues. She's posted seven straight games of 25 or more FanDuel points and is attempting a ton of shots for an Aces team that has started to find its footing after a rough start to the season. The Storm aren't a bad defensive team, but they don't rank near the top in any defensive metrics either.

Chelsea Gray (G, Los Angeles Sparks) – vs Indiana Fever (DK: $8,100, FD: $6,800)

Gray is much cheaper relative to others at her position on DraftKings, where she ranks as just the 10th highest priced guard. Part of that is because she went through a mediocre stretch, but a game against Indiana, who she posted 12 points, eight assists, and seven rebounds against the last time they met, is as good a time as any to trust Gray. No team allows their opponents to reach the free throw line more than the Fever, and Gray has shown a knack of getting to the line.

Danielle Robinson (G, Minnesota Lynx) – vs Dallas Wings (DK: $4,600, FD: $3,500)

There's a pretty major caveat here: my feelings about Robinson depend greatly on whether or not Seimone Augustus (hamstring) suits up or not. If you're setting a lineup early in the day before we have clarity on that situation, be careful, but with Augustus out or limited and Lindsay Whalen going through a rough patch, Robinson could be in line to play major minutes. Robinson is a good passer and has had some good scoring outbursts this season as well, though the inconsistency there is part of why I'd want to steer clear if Augustus does play.

 

WNBA - DFS Forwards

Breanna Stewart (F, Seattle Storm) – vs Las Vegas Aces (DK: $12,900, FD: $8,500)

I don't like putting the most expensive on this list because it can make it difficult to figure out how to build your roster, but Stewart has already had a pair of strong outings against the Aces so far this season and should be a lock to produce one of the best fantasy statlines of the night. She's also started to fix the three point shooting woes that plagued her early in the year.

Tina Charles (F, New York Liberty) – vs Atlanta Dream (DK: $12,600, FD: $7,700)

I prefer Charles at her FanDuel price, but either way she should put up strong numbers on Tuesday against Atlanta, who allow the most rebounds in the WNBA. Charles has struggled as an outside shooter this season, but if she can work the ball inside against the Dream then she should be able to stop her recent slide and put up numbers that better resemble the ones she was putting up early in the season.

Liz Cambage (F, Dallas Wings) – @ Minnesota Lynx (DK: $12,300, FD: $8,200)

I might regret this because of a tough matchup against the Lynx and Sylvia Fowles, but she's coming off a huge game against the Aces (28 points and 18 rebounds) and put up a solid double-double in Dallas's first meeting with Minnesota. She's got a high floor and a ton of upside and has the added bonus of having already shown this year that she can hold her own against Fowles.

Erica McCall (F, Indiana Fever) – @ Los Angeles Sparks (DK: $4,300, FD: $3,700)

McCall is a good value play against the Sparks. DraftKings's opponent ranking metric has the Sparks ranked ninth out of 12 teams at this position, suggesting that Indiana -- fresh off their first win of the season -- could make some things happen inside. Her playing time has been inconsistent lately, but Stephanie Mavunga (ankle) is questionable, opening up more opportunity for McCall.

Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis (F, Seattle Storm) – vs Las Vegas Aces (DK: $3,900, FD: $3,200)

If you're looking for value, Mosqueda-Lewis has found her three point shot this season. Despite never shooting better than 35.4 percent and shooting below 30 percent in two of her first three seasons, she's hitting half of her shots from deep this season while attempting two deep shots per game. There's been some inconsistency with her minutes, but she's played 17 and 19 minutes in her past two games. If she maintains that against Las Vegas, she should be on the floor long enough to make an impact.
