Two WNBA games Saturday.

Things get started early with Mystics/Wings, so let's get right into the analysis.

In this article, I'll be providing you with some daily fantasy WNBA lineup picks for DraftKings and FanDuel on 6/26/21. These lineups picks will range from elite players to mid-priced options and value plays. Want to talk more about the WNBA?

WNBA DFS Game Breakdown: Mystics @ Wings

When: 1:00 PM ET

Watch: CBS

Players of Interest: The day gets started with Dallas taking on Washington.

When it comes to Washington, there's one very obvious play: Tina Charles. Charles has 40 or more fantasy points in three consecutive games, as the injury to Myisha Hines-Allen has meant this team has had to rely heavily on the former MVP. Against the Fever, for instance, Charles took 30 field goal attempts. THIRTY. And against this Wings defense, she's going to go off.

Theresa Plaisance remains an interesting play as well. Once out of the rotation, injuries have meant that Plaisance has taken double-digit shot attempts in four consecutive games, with a lot of her damage coming from deep.

And hey, injuries mean there's even some chance that Megan Gustafson gets some run against her former team. She's played 10.5 minutes per game in her two appearances for the Mystics, shooting the ball well and averaging five boards per night.

A back injury has Ariel Atkins questionable, so might be best to avoid her and stick with Leilani Mitchell if you want a Mystics guard.

For Dallas, this seems like a good matchup for Arike Ogunbowale. She's coming off a disappointing game for her with just 10 points, but she still had a solid fantasy day because she added five assists and two steals. Marina Mabrey has had some struggles lately, but still has a super high ceiling, though she's dealing with an ankle injury, so play her sparingly.

In fact, a limited Mabrey could mean big things for Allisha Gray, who is coming off a strong showing with 13 points, four rebounds, one assist, and two steals against the Fever. Gray has yet to look like she did back on May 14th in the season opener when she had 46.75 DraftKings points, but she's showing signs of getting back to playing her best.

Satou Sabally is probable with an Achilles injury, but she should still play. She's had some inconsistent usage, but is an efficient scorer who can grab rebounds and block shots. High ceiling here, though a floor that's a little too low.

And hey, Charli Collier just had the best game of her season, with 12 points and seven rebounds in 27 minutes. Is she finally getting starter minutes, or was it just that the team could afford to play her a lot against Indiana? Not sure, but I think you can throw her into a lineup.

 

WNBA DFS Game Breakdown: Liberty @ Dream

When: 7:00 PM ET

Watch: WNBA League Pass

Players of Interest: The night game should be a fun one.

For New York, the Liberty are looking to get things back on track after some struggles this past week. Atlanta could be the team they do that against.

Betnijah Laney is the top play. She's failed to hit the 20-point mark in four of the last five games, but she's New York's best scorer and consistently shoots over 50 percent from the floor.

Sabrina Ionescu stretched her streak of games scoring under 10 points to seven and was on the floor for just 13 minutes in a blowout loss to the Sky. This game should be closer, leaving us with more Ionescu minutes. Her scoring downside makes her risky, but she also can flirt with an assist/rebound double-double virtually any night.

Sami Whitcomb has been on a nice run, with 20-plus fantasy points in six consecutive games. She's been the de-facto point guard, but that hasn't really done much for her assists. Her shooting volume is what makes her a strong play, even if she's 3-for-15 from deep over the past two games.

At forward, Rebecca Allen is a fine play, but I'd rather save some cap space and grab Michaela Onyenwere. Coming off a big night where she had 16 points and six boards in 32 minutes and facing a good matchup, I think there's a lot of value here.

As for Atlanta, injuries have again kept us from seeing this team at full strength. But against this Liberty team, the players who are healthy in the backcourt should show out. Courtney Williams is arguably the best guard to play on this slate, as last time these teams played she had 31 points, 12 rebounds, and seven assists.

This NY defense also makes me want to play a lot of Chennedy Carter. Injured in the first meeting of these teams, she still had 12 points in just 19 minutes of action, and in her return to the floor against Minnesota, she scored 16 points on 58.3 percent shooting. Odyssey Sims is a strong play as well, as she's scored in double figures in three consecutive games, including a pair of 20-plus point nights. Carter's return cuts her upside some, though.

I'd guess we see a lot of Cheyenne Parker in this one. Last game, she had 35.75 DraftKings points despite only scoring six points because she did everything else on the floor so well. We didn't get to see her against New York earlier in the year, but defending against bigs is an issue for this team. That's also why I like Elizabeth Williams on this slate -- she had 12 points and 11 rebounds when these teams faced off in May.
