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 tomorrow evening’s Indiana Fever vs. Seattle Storm matchup.

Draftkings Picks

Captain-Ezi Magbegor, Forward, Seattle Storm $10,000

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 15 games that forward Ezi Magbegor has played for the Seattle Storm in the 2024 WNBA regular season, Magbegor has averaged an impressive 13.3 points, 9.6 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 2.5 blocks, and 1.6 steals a game.

It is noteworthy that these two teams faced off three weeks ago in Indiana. In that matchup, Seattle forward Ezi Magbegor played rather well. Let me be more specific. In the Seattle Storm’s 103-88 win over the Indiana Fever just mentioned, Seattle forward Ezi Magbegor accumulated a whopping 15 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 steals and 4 blocks.

I also like Ezi Magbegor’s matchup in this game. Why? Magbegor draws an Indiana Fever team that has struggled on the defensive side of the basketball all season. Through 15 games played in the 2024 WNBA regular season, the Indiana Fever are currently ranked a dreadful 12th in total team defensive rating (109.1), 11th in total opponent second chance points allowed a game (13.1), and ninth in total points allowed in the paint a game (36.7). Clearly, the data just presented tells us that the Indiana Fever are not a good defensive team.

Flex Plays

Caitlin Clark, Guard, Indiana Fever $11,000

Indiana Fever rookie guard Caitlin Clark has wasted little time showing basketball fans that she belongs in the WNBA. Through 15 games played this season, Clark is averaging 16.3 points, 5.4 rebounds, 6.6 assists, 1.5 steals, and 1 block a game.

I am backing talented Indiana Fever rookie guard Caitlin Clark as a flex play for this one game WNBA DFS Draftkings slate.

Aliyah Boston, Forward, Indiana Fever $9,600

Indiana Fever forward 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 15 games played in the 2024 regular season, Aliyah Boston averaged 13.1 points, 7.9 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 1.3 blocks, and 0.9 steals a game.

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

Additional players I like (Draftkings price noted): Skylar Diggins-Smith, Guard (Seattle) $8,400: Kelsey Mitchell, Guard (Indiana) $7,000: Katie Lou Samuelson, Forward (Indiana) $4,800.
