Indiana Fever vs. Los Angeles Sparks
May 24, 2024 10:00 pm EDT

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

Before we dive into the Indiana Fever vs. Los Angeles Sparks game let’s review the rules for 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 this evening’s Indiana Fever vs. Los Angeles Sparks matchup.

Captain-Dearica Hamby $9,800

Los Angeles Sparks forward Dearica Hamby arrives at tonight’s game with the Indiana Fever playing exceptional basketball from a statistical perspective. Let’s take a look at Hamby’s recent game data to shed light on my previous statement.

In the Los Angeles Sparks three games played in the 2024 WNBA regular season, Sparks forward Dearica Hamby has averaged a whopping 22.1 points, 13.7 rebounds, 2.7 assists, and 2 steals a game.

More recently, in the Los Angeles Sparks 70-68 win over the Washington Mystics three days ago, Los Angeles Sparks forward Dearica Hamby accumulated 17 points, 18 rebounds, 4 assists, and 1 steal in the Sparks defeat of the Washington Mystics.

In my opinion, talented Los Angeles Sparks forward Dearica Hamby is a great play at captain for this one game DFS slate

Flex Plays

Caitlin Clark $9,400

Indiana Fever rookie guard Caitlin Clark has wasted little time showing basketball fans that she belongs in the WNBA. In five games played for the Indiana Fever this season, Clark is averaging 17.8 points, 3.4 rebounds, 5.8 assists, and 1 block a game.

Looking more closely at the data just presented, in the Indiana Fever’s five games played this season, rookie Indiana guard Caitlin Clark is averaging 34.1 Draftkings points a game.

For the reasons just noted, I am backing talented Indiana Fever guard Caitlin Clark as a flex play for this  Draftkings WNBA contest.

Lexi Brown $8,000

Sparks shooting guard Lexi Brown has been a key contributor for this Los Angeles Sparks team in 2024. Through three games played in the WNBA this season, Lexi Brown is averaging 14.7 points, 3.7 assists, and 2.3 steals a game. I like Lexi Brown’s chances of posting some quality numbers in tonight’s matchup with the Indiana Fever.

Aliyah Boston $7,800

Indiana Fever guard Aliyah Boston has certainly been the leader in the paint that the Fever have needed to win games this season.

In the Indiana Fever’s four games played in the 2024 regular season, Aliyah Boston averaged 9.1 points, 6.3 rebounds, 0.5 blocks, and 0.7 steals a game.

In summary, I love Aliyah Boston’s chances of performing at a high level versus this vulnerable Los Angeles Sparks defense later today.

Additional players I like (Draftkings price noted): Cameron Brink $8,800: Kelsey Mitchell $7,200: Katie Lou Samuelson $5,600: NaLyssa Smith $8,400.
