The WNBA presents a matchup between the Indiana Fever and Phoenix Mercury. Let’s take a look at this game from a Draftkings perspective.

Before we dive into the Indiana Fever vs. Phoenix Mercury 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 afternoon’s Indiana Fever vs. Phoenix Mercury matchup.

Draftkings Picks

Captain-Aliyah Boston. Forward, Indiana Fever $9,000

Indiana forward Aliyah Boston has certainly been a great presence in the paint for this Indiana Fever basketball team this season. Let’s take a look at Boston’s recent game data to better shed light on my previous statement.

In 16 games played for the Indiana Fever in the 2024 WNBA regular season, Indiana Fever forward Aliyah Boston has averaged a respectable 12.9 points, 8.3 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 0.8 steals, and 1.3 blocks a game.

More recently, in the Seattle Storm’s 89-77 win over the Indiana Fever two days ago, Indiana Fever forward Aliyah Boston posted some quality DFS numbers. More specifically, Indiana forward Aliyah Boston accumulated 11 points, 14 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal, and 1 block in the Seattle Stom’s victory over the Indiana Fever earlier this week.

I also like Aliyah Boston’s matchup in this game. Why? Indiana forward Aliyah Boston draws a Phoenix Mercury team that has struggled on defense this season. Through 16 games played in the 2024 WNBA regular season, the Phoenix Mercury are currently ranked a dreadful eighth in total team defensive rating (102.5), tenth in total opponent fast break points allowed a game (11.1), and ninth in total opponent second chance points allowed a game (11.5). Clearly, the defensive data just presented tells us that the Phoenix Mercury are currently not a good defensive basketball team. After all, numbers don’t lie.

In conclusion, I am rolling with Aliyah Boston as my captain selection for this one game Draftkings WNBA DFS showdown slate.

Flex Plays

Kahleah Copper, Guard, Phoenix Mercury $8,800

How important has Phoenix guard Kahleah Copper been to this Phoenix Mercury team this season? Let’s take a quick look at Copper’s recent statistical game data to answer that question.

In the 16 games that the Phoenix Mercury have played in the 2024 WNBA regular season, Phoenix guard Kahleah Copper has averaged 22.7 points, 4.5 rebounds, 2.2 assists, and 1.2 steals a game.

Looking closer at the data just presented, in the last 16 games that Kahleah Copper has played for the Phoenix Mercury in the 2024 WNBA regular season, Copper has averaged a whopping 33.9 Draftkings points a contest.

Additional players I like to play well this evening (Draftkings price noted): Natasha Cloud, Guard (Phoenix Mercury) $8,000: Brittney Griner, Forward (Phoenix Mercury) $9,400: Caitlin Clark, Guard (Indiana Fever) $9,600: Erica Wheeler, Guard (Indiana Fever) $5,200.
