Tomorrow afternoon, the WNBA presents a matchup between the New York Liberty and Las Vegas Aces. Let’s take a look at this game from a Draftkings perspective.

Before we dive into the New York Liberty vs. Las Vegas Aces game let’s review the rules for the Draftkings single game showdown contest.

Draftkings Single Game Showdown Contest Rules

You have $50,000 to utilize on five players from either team. However, one of those players will be designated as your team captain. The captain accumulates 1.5 times the standard fantasy points. Additionally, the captain is 1.5 times the standard cost of the flex position.

The remaining four players in your lineup will receive the standard fantasy points. Having stated that, it is highly important for you to identify the correct player for your captain position if you hope to win a large field DFS GPP (guaranteed prize pool) showdown contest.

If you have additional questions regarding the rules for the single game showdown contest, I recommend that you check out the Draftkings website for more details.

*I recommend that all readers review the starting lineups for both teams prior to setting your DFS lineup for this one game slate.

Here are my Draftkings picks for tomorrow’s New York Liberty vs. Las Vegas Aces matchup.

Captain-A’ja Wilson, Forward, Las Vegas Aces $10,000

Las Vegas forward A’ja Wilson has been the leader in the paint that the Las Vegas Aces have needed to win games this season. Having stated that, how has A’ja Wilson been playing from an offensive standpoint? Let’s review A’ja Wilson’s recent game data to answer that question.

In 11 games played for the Las Vegas Aces in the 2024 WNBA regular season, A’ja Wilson averaged an impressive 28.6 points, 11.7 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.8 steals, and 2.6 blocks a game.

Looking closer at the data just presented, in the 11 games that A’ja Wilson has played for the Las Vegas Aces this season, Wilson has accumulated a whopping 58.6 Draftkings points a game.

Two days ago, the Las Vegas Aces defeated the Phoenix Mercury 103-99. In that specific contest, Aces forward A’ja Wilson certainly performed at a high level from a statistical perspective. A’ja Wilson accumulated 32 points, 15 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal and 2 blocks in the Aces victory over the Phoenix Mercury.

As I noted in the rules section above, selecting the correct player for your captain position is absolutely vital if you hope to win a large field GPP (guaranteed prize pool) Draftkings contest. Keep that in mind as you determine which player to select as your captain for this one game DFS contest. For me, the obvious choice at the captain position for this WNBA Draftkings contest is talented Las Vegas Aces forward A’ja Wilson.

Flex Plays

Sabrina Ionescu, Guard, New York Liberty $8,200

New York Liberty guard Sabrina Ionescu is certainly showing the world why she is one of the best point guards in the WNBA this season.

In the 13 games that the New York Liberty have played in the 2024 WNBA regular season, New York point guard Sabrina Ionescu has averaged a robust 17.8 points, 4.4 rebounds, 5.5 assists, 1.1 steals, and 0.5 blocks a game.

I fully expect New York Liberty guard Sabrina Ionescu to continue her quality play on the basketball court versus the Las Vegas Aces tomorrow afternoon.

Additional flex plays I like to play well (Draftkings price noted): Breanna Stewart, Forward (New York) $9,000: Kelsey Plum, Guard, (Las Vegas) $7,600: Jonquel Jones, Forward (New York) $9,000: Kate Martin, Guard (Las Vegas) $4,800.
