Jonquel Jones (DK: $10,100 FD: $7,500): Our overall Must-Have for today’s slate is the focal point of the Connecticut Sun, Jonquel Jones. We know that people in WNBA DFS love to box score watch and if they do, they will see three sub-par games for the Sun center. But looking deeper, you will see that two games came against the best defenses versus forwards in the WNBA in Minnesota and Washington. The third game was against Dallas when she battled foul trouble all game long and couldn’t get a rhythm. If you look at the two games against ATL this season so far, you will see Jonquel had great outings. She posted 18 and 8 against them the last time out and the first game she dropped 50+ fantasy points. With Jonquel going up against ATL, who still is among the worst in the WNBA per possession in PTS and REBs allowed to forwards, we expect a big outing from the Bahama Mama. Lock her into your lineups today with confidence at her lowest price point on both sites in a while.
Odyssey Sims (DK: $9,500): FanDuel didn’t include the late night game on their slate, but lucky for our DK players, we have a late night hammer Must-Have in Odyssey Sims of the Minnesota Lynx. With Damiris Dantas and others still out for the Lynx, Sims has seen all the minutes she can handle, posting 35+ minutes in each of her last 5 outings. With this volume she will always be in play, but you couple that with her recent dominance of running the offense and being the one key ball-handler, and you have a Must-Have at a sub $10k price on DK. She’s notched over 37 fpts in three of her last four games and is a contributor in every stat category. Her matchup with Chicago is middle of the road, as the Sky rank right around league average in all categories to guards based on our DVP. We think Sims can be that key late piece that you will want to have in your lineups for tomorrow’s full day DK slate.
Jasmine Thomas (FD: $5,600): There is simply no good sub $4k plays on FanDuel today and with that you will have to live in the mid-tier and build a more balanced line than we are used to advocating for. Jasmine Thomas of the Sun is that piece that you will want to lock in at guard to start your lineups today. She has really had success against ATL this season in their previous two meetings, posting 30 fpt performances in both and filling the stat sheet in each game with PTS, REBs, and ASTs. Jasmine has become the main ball-handler and facilitator for this Sun team of late and she has plenty of weapons on that offense that has in turn lead to her logging 5+ assists in 7 of her last 9 games. We want to mention this because the Dream give up the 4th most assists per possession to opposing guards this season. Thomas has also started to get aggressive going to the basket and creating for not only her teammates, but herself. Notably, she has scored in double figures in four of her last five games. We expect her to stay consistent and you will want to lock her into your lineups on FanDuel today!
