WNBA Daily Fantasy Lineup Picks (8/10/23): WNBA DFS Advice for DraftKings, FanDuel

WNBA dfs lineup picks daily fantasy basketball stock

We've got three WNBA games on Thursday night's schedule, with the Lynx and Fever getting things going at 7:00 p.m. ET. After that, we have a pair of games at 10:00m p.m., as the Mercury host the Sun and the Storm host the Dream.

If you're looking for WNBA daily fantasy picks and some betting advice this season, then you're in the right place. I'll be here providing picks for any slate with two or more games.

In this article, I'll be providing you with some daily fantasy WNBA lineup picks for DraftKings and FanDuel. These lineup picks will range from elite players to mid-priced options and value plays. The slates lock on 8/10/2023 at 7:00 PM ET. Want to talk more about the WNBA? I'm always available on Twitter and always down to discuss women's basketball: @juscarts.

WNBA DFS Picks: Forward

Alyssa Thomas (Connecticut Sun)  - @ PHO - DK: $13,000, FD: 9,000

This is one of those slates where there's a clear top play. One issue is she's definitely priced like it—the second-highest priced forward on DraftKings is Napheesa Collier at $10,800. You've got to take some risks if you play Thomas.

But taking risks is fun. Let's start with the highest-ceiling play on the slate and have some fun around her.

Thomas had 16 points, 12 rebounds, eight assists, one block, and four steals in her last game against Seattle. That marked the third time in the last four games she's had at least a double-double, with one triple-double in that span as well. She's also recorded multiple steals in four straight.

The last time Thomas faced the Mercury, she had a relatively quiet game, with 11 points, six rebounds, seven assists, and two blocks. But I mean...that's a quiet game for her, which is still a good game for most players.

Ezi Magbegor (Seattle Storm)  - vs. ATL - DK: $9,500, FD: $7,600

Magbegor has scored in double figures in three consecutive games. Last game against the Sun, she had 10 points on 4-for-8 shooting while adding six rebounds, four assists, and two blocks. She's someone who is always capable of filling up the stat sheet.

The last time the Storm faced the Dream, Magbegor had one of her worst games, going 0-for-8 from the floor in a scoreless night. But she still managed 20.5 DraftKings points thanks to eight rebounds, four assists, two blocks, and one steal. I'm willing to bet that lack of scoring was a blip, especially against an Atlanta team that allows the second-most points per game in the league.

Nia Coffey (Atlanta Dream)  - @ SEA - DK: $6,900, FD: $5,200

Nice little run lately from Coffey, who has scored nine or more points in three of the last four games. She's not going to knock down a ton of shots, but if she can hit the ones she does take, she can be a really nice value option.

In the three games with nine-plus points, Coffey shot 50% or better from the floor and made at least one three in each game. Last time out, she was 4-for-8 with nine points against the Fever and also added five rebounds, three assists, two blocks, and two steals. Her defensive impact has been key to her increased fantasy viability.

 

WNBA DFS Picks: Guard

Diamond Miller (Minnesota Lynx)  - @ IND - DK: $8,700, FD:  $5,800

think Aliyah Boston has Rookie of the Year locked up, but if Diamond Miller hadn't been hurt earlier this season, she'd be giving Boston a run for her money. The first-year guard is averaging 12.5 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.8 assists, and 1.1 steals per game.

She's struggled with her shot lately, shooting under 30% in four consecutive games, but this feels like a bounce-back shot for Miller as she faces the Fever. Indiana allows 85.1 points per game, the most in the WNBA, and opposing teams shoot 44.7% against them, fifth-highest in the league.

Miller did really struggle when these teams met at the beginning of July, though. She was 0-for-5 from the floor, scoring just one point while adding five rebounds and two assists. I can't say I'm not worried about that, but I'll take Miller's overall play plus Indiana's defensive struggles over that one-game sample.

Sami Whitcomb (Seattle Storm)  - vs. ATL - DK: $6,800, FD: $5,800 

With Gabby Williams out, the Storm are going to need to find a little more offense. Some of that should come from Sami Whitcomb, who has scored in double figures the last two games. I expect her performances over the last week to look a lot like her performances going forward.

Last time out, Whitcomb scored 11 points on 4-f0r-10 shooting against Connecticut while also adding four rebounds, five assists, and one steal. She drained a pair of threes and has now made multiple treys in seven of the past eight games.

Also of note here: as I mentioned above, the Dream allow the second-most points per game in the W. That should also play in Whitcomb's favor.

Dijonai Carrington (Connecticut Sun)  - @ PHO - DK: $5,000, FD: $4,700

Carrington's numbers have been a bit of a rollercoaster. She's scored nine or more points in three of the last four games, but in the one she didn't, she was held scoreless.

Last game, Carrington was 4-for-11 from the floor, scoring nine points to go along with two rebounds, two assists, and two steals. She also had 10 points earlier this season against Phoenix, her opponent on Thursday.

There's risk here, but Carrington's someone who can deliver some solid results if she gets 20-plus minutes, as she did last game. In the 10 games where's played at least that many minutes, she's averaged 13.1 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 2.1 assists, while in the 11 where she's played 10-19 minutes, she's averaged 7.0 points. 2.3 rebounds, and 0.6 assists. With her playing 20-plus in two of the last four games, this is kind of a toss-up, but the Sun are a lot better than the Mercury, so there's a chance they have the luxury of going to the bench more, giving Carrington more chances.
