Draftkings picks and predictions for this tomorrow's Mercury vs. Storm matchup.

Phoenix Mercury vs. Seattle Storm
June 4, 2024 10:00 pm EDT

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

Before we dive into the Seattle Storm 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’s Seattle Storm vs. Phoenix Mercury matchup.

Draftkings Picks

Captain-Kahleah Copper $9,200

Phoenix guard Kahleah Copper has been one of the few bright spots for a Phoenix Mercury team that has struggled to start the 2024 campaign. Having stated that, how has Kahleah Cooper been playing recently?

In the nine games that the Phoenix Mercury have played in the 2024 WNBA regular season, Phoenix guard Kahleah Copper has averaged a robust 22.9 points, 4.2 rebounds, 2.1 assists, and 1 steal a game.

More recently, in her last three games played for the Phoenix Mercury this season, Phoenix guard Kahleah Copper averaged an impressive 17.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, 1 assist, and 1.3 steals a game.

Looking closer at the data just presented, in the Mercury’s last three games played in the 2024 WNBA campaign, Phoenix guard Kahleah Copper accumulated 26.5 Draftkings points.

In my opinion, selecting the correct captain is of the highest importance if you hope to win a large field GPP (guaranteed prize pool) Draftkings contest. Having stated that, I think that talented Phoenix Mercury guard Kaleah Copper is a great play at captain for this one game DFS slate.

Flex Plays

Nneka Ogwumike $10,000

Talented Seattle Storm forward Nneka Ogwumike has been the driving force in the paint that the Seattle Storm have needed to win games in 2024.

In the six games that Nneka Ogwumike has played for the Seattle Storm in the 2024 WNBA regular season, Ogwumike averaged 18.7 points, 7.3 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 2.2 steals, and 0.5 blocks a game.

In summary, I love Nneka Ogwumike’s chances of performing at a high level versus this Phoenix Mercury defense.

Ezi Magbegor $9,600

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 eight games played in the 2024 WNBA regular season, Magbegor has averaged a respectable 13.6 points, 8.6 rebounds, 2 assists, 1.1 steals, and 2 blocks a game.

I certainly like Ezi Magbegor’s matchup tonight? Why? Magbegor draws a Phoenix Mercury defense that is currently ranked 11th in overall team defensive rating (104.7) in the WNBA.

I fully expect Seattle Storm forward Ezi Magbegor to continue her quality play versus the Phoenix Mercury tomorrow night.

Additional players I like (Draftkings price noted): Jewell Loyd $9,800: Natasha Cloud $8,000: Skylar Diggins-Smith $8,200: Sug Sutton $4,200.
