The WNBA presents a matchup between the Minnesota Lynx and Dallas Wings. Let’s take a look at this game from a Draftkings perspective.

Before we dive into the Minnesota Lynx vs. Dallas Wings 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 afternoon’s Minnesota Lynx vs. Dallas Wings matchup.

Draftkings Picks

Captain-Napheesa Collier, Forward, Minnesota Lynx $10,800

Minnesota forward Napheesa Collier has certainly been the leader that this Minnesota Lynx team has needed to win games this season. Having stated that how has Collier been playing from a statistical perspective? Let’s take a look at Collier’s recent game data to answer that question.

In the 15 games that forward Napheesa Collier has played for the Minnesota Lynx this season, Lynx forward Napheesa Collier has averaged an impressive 20.9 points, 10.1 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 2.3 steals, and 1.4 blocks a game.

I also like Napheesa Collier’s matchup in this game. Why? Collier draws a Dallas Wings team that has struggled on defense this season. Through 15 games played in the 2024 WNBA regular season, the Dallas Wings are currently ranked an abysmal 11th in total team defensive rating (106.1), tenth in total opponent second chance points allowed a game (12.6), and 12th in total points allowed in the paint a game (40.1). Clearly, the defensive data just presented tells us that the Dallas Wings are not a good defensive basketball team. After all, numbers don’t lie.

It is noteworthy that these two teams faced off ten days ago. In that matchup, Lynx forward Napheesa Collier played exceptionally well. Let me be more specific. In the Minnesota Lynx’s 90-78 win over the Dallas Wings just mentioned, Lynx forward Napheesa Collier accumulated 16 points, 7 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 steals and 1 block.

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 Minnesota Lynx forward Napheesa Collier is a great play at captain for this one game WNBA DFS Draftkings slate.

Flex Plays

Arike Ogunbowale, Guard, Dallas Wings $9,800

How important has Dallas Wings point guard Arike Ogunbowale been to this Dallas Wings team this season?

In the 15 games that the Dallas Wings have played in the 2024 WNBA regular season, Wings guard Arike Ogunbowale has averaged 23.9 points, 4.7 rebounds, 4.8 assists, and 2.7 steals a game.

Additional players I like to play well this evening (Draftkings price noted): Courtney Williams, Guard (Minnesota) $8,000: Alanna Smith, Forward (Minnesota) $8,400: Jacy Sheldon, Guard (Dallas) $5,400: Natasha Howard, Forward (Dallas) $8,800: Dorka Juhasz, Forward, (Minnesota) $6,000.
