Draftkings picks and predictions for tomorrow's Sky vs. Fever matchup.

Chicago Sky vs. Indiana Fever
June 16, 2024 12:00 pm EDT

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

Before we dive into the Chicago Sky vs. Indiana Fever 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 Chicago Sky vs. Indiana Pacers matchup.

Draftkings Picks

Captain-Aliyah Boston, Forward, Indiana Fever $9,400

Indiana Fever forward Aliyah Boston has certainly been the leader in the paint that the Fever have needed to win games this season. Let’s take a look at Boston’s recent game data to shed light on my previous statement.

In 14 games played for the Indiana Fever in the 2024 WNBA regular season, Indiana Fever forward Aliyah Boston has averaged a respectable 11.8 points, 7.4 rebounds, 2,6 assists, 0.9 steals, and 1.1 blocks a game.

More recently, in the Indiana Fever’s 91-84 win over the Atlanta Dream two days ago, Indiana Fever forward Aliyah Boston played exceptionally well. Boston accumulated 27 points, 13 rebounds, 2 assists, and 1 block in the Indiana Fever’s defeat of the Atlanta Dream earlier this week.

Additionally, I like Aliyah Boston’s matchup versus the Chicago Sky tomorrow afternoon. Indiana’s Aliyah Boston draws a Chicago Sky defense that has struggled to defend opposing players in the paint all season. Through 13 games played in the 2024 WNBA regular season, the Chicago Sky are currently ranked an abysmal 11th in total points allowed in the paint a game (38.3). Keep in mind that the WNBA has 12 teams in the entire league. Clearly, being ranked 11th in any team defensive category is never a good thing.

Selecting the correct captain for your DFS single game showdown lineup is vital if you hope to win a large field GPP (guaranteed prize pool) Draftkings contest. I think that talented Indiana forward Aliyah Boston fits the captain narrative perfectly for this one game WNBA slate.

Flex Plays

Caitlin Clark, Guard, Indiana Fever $9,200

Indiana Fever rookie guard Caitlin Clark has wasted little time showing the world that she belongs in the WNBA. Having stated that, how has Clark been playing from a statistical standpoint?

In the 13 games that Caitlin Clark has played for the Indiana Fever in the 2024 WNBA regular season, Indiana guard Caitlin Clark is averaging 15.6 points, 4.9 rebounds, 6.1 assists, 1.4 steals, and 1 block a game.

In conclusion, I like Indiana Fever guard Caitlin Clark’s chances of posting quality fantasy numbers versus the vulnerable Chicago Sky defense tomorrow afternoon.

Additional flex plays I like to play well (Draftkings price noted): Angel Reese, Forward, (Chicago) $9,800: Kamilla Cardosa, Forward, (Las Vegas) $7,400: Dana Evans, Guard (Chicago) $6,400: Kristy Wallace, Guard (Indiana) $5,800.
