June 19, 2024 10:00 pm EDT

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

Before we dive into the Seattle Storm vs. Las Vegas Aces 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 tonight’s Seattle Storm vs. Las Vegas Aces matchup.

Captain-A’ja Wilson, Forward, Las Vegas Aces $10,400

Las Vegas forward A’ja Wilson has been the leader in the paint that the Las Vegas Aces have needed to win games this season. Having stated that, how has A’ja Wilson been playing from an offensive standpoint? Let’s review A’ja Wilson’s recent game data to answer that question.

In the 12 games that A’ja Wilson has played for the Las Vegas Aces in the 2024 WNBA regular season, Wilson averaged an impressive 28.1 points, 11.5 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.7 steals, and 2.5 blocks a game.

Looking closer at the data just presented, in the 14 games that A’ja Wilson has played for the Las Vegas Aces this season, Wilson has accumulated a whopping 58.6 Draftkings points a game. It has to be said, that is the type of fantasy production I need from a player I select at the captain position.

It should be noted that the Las Vegas Aces and Seattle Storm played earlier this month. In that WNBA contest, the Seattle Storm defeated the Las Vegas Aces 78-65. How did Las Vegas forward A’ja Wilson perform in the loss to the Storm? Wilson compiled a whopping 29 points, 11 rebounds, 3 blocks, and 1 steal in the Aces loss to the Seattle Storm two weeks ago.

I also like A’ja Wilson’s matchup tonight? Why? Wilson draws a Seattle Storm defense that has struggled to defend opposing players in the paint all season. Let me be more specific. Through 14 games played in the 2024 WNBA regular season, the Seattle Storm are currently ranked a rather low eighth in total points allowed in the paint a game (36.1). Keep in mind that the WNBA has 12 teams in the entire league. Clearly, being ranked eighth in any team defensive category is never a good thing.

For the reasons just noted, I am backing Las Vegas Aces center A’ja Wilson as my captain for tonight’s Draftkings contest.

Flex Plays

Jewell Loyd, Guard, Seattle Storm $9,400

Seattle Storm guard Jewell Loyd is certainly showing the world why she is one of the best guards in the WNBA this season.

In the 14 games that the Seattle Storm have played in the 2024 WNBA regular season, Seattle Storm guard Jewell Loyd averaged a robust 32.2 Draftkings points a game.

Additional flex plays I like to play well (Draftkings price noted): Kelsey Plum, Guard (Las Vegas) $7,800: Ezi Magbegor, Forward, (Seattle) $9,600: Kate Martin, Guard (Las Vegas) $4,000.
