The WNBA presents a matchup between the Indiana Fever vs. Seattle Storm. Let’s take a look at this game from a Draftkings perspective.

Before we dive into the Indiana Fever vs. Seattle Storm 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. Seattle Storm matchup.

Draftkings Picks

Captain-Ezi Magbegor $8,400

How important has Seattle forward Ezi Magbegor been to the Seattle Storm offense this season? Let’s take a look at Magbegor’s recent game statistics to answer that question.

In the Seattle Storm’s first four games played in the 2024 WNBA regular season, Magbegor has averaged an impressive 12.8 points, 8.5 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 blocks, and 0.7 steals a game.

Looking at the data just presented more closely I observed that in the Seattle Storm’s last four games played this season, Ezi Magbegor has averaged 32.3 Draftkings points a game.

More recently, in the Seattle Storm’s 74-63 loss to the to the New York Liberty two days ago, Seattle forward Ezi Magbegor accumulated 12 points, 5 rebounds, and 2 blocks in the Storm’s loss to the New York Liberty.

If you have aspirations of winning a large field GPP (guaranteed prize pool) Draftkings contest selecting the correct captain is of the highest importance. Having stated that, I think that Seattle Storm forward Ezi Magbegor is a great play at captain for this one game DFS slate.

Flex Plays

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 9.5 points, 7.1 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 2 blocks, and 0.8 steals a game.

In summary, I love Aliyah Boston’s chances of performing at a high level versus this Seattle Storm team later today.

Caitlin Clark $8,600

Indiana Fever rookie guard Caitlin Clark has wasted little time showing basketball fans that she belongs in the WNBA. Through three games played this season, Clark is averaging 17 points, 4.1 rebounds, 5.5 assists, and 0.8 steals a game.

It is also noteworthy that these teams played the first game of the 2024 season six days ago. In that game, Indiana guard Caitlin Clark posted 20 points, 3 assists, and 2 steals in the Indiana Fever’s 92-71 loss to the Connecticut Sun last week.

For the reasons just noted, I am backing talented Indiana Fever rookie guard Caitlin Clark as a flex play for this one game Draftkings slate.

Additional players I like (Draftkings price noted): Skylar Diggins-Smith $8,200: Kelsey Mitchell $7,000: Katie Lou Samuelson $5,000: Merecedes Russell $6,000.
