New York Liberty vs. Atlanta Dream
June 6, 2024 7:30 pm EDT

The WNBA presents a matchup between the Atlanta Dream and the New York Liberty. Let’s take a look at this Game from a Draftkings perspective.

Before we dive into the Atlanta Dream vs. New York Liberty 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 Atlanta Dream vs. New York Liberty matchup.

Draftkings Picks

Captain-Breanna Stewart $12,000

New York forward Breanna Stewart has certainly established herself as the leader of this New York Liberty team in 2024. Having stated that, how has Stewart been playing from a statistical standpoint? Let’s take a look at Stewart’s recent game data to answer that question.

In ten Games played for the New York Liberty in the 2024 WNBA regular season, New York Liberty forward Beanna Stewart has averaged a whopping 19.4 points, 9.8 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 2.1 steals, and 1.1 blocks a Game.

More recently, in the New York Liberty’s 88-75 win over the Chicago Sky two days ago, New York Liberty forward Breanna Stewart played rather well. Let me be more specific. Stewart accumulated 33 points, 14 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 block, and 1 steal in the New York Liberty’s defeat of the Chicago Sky.

As I noted in the rules section above, selecting the correct captain for your DFS single Game showdown lineup is vital if you hope to win a large field GPP (guaranteed prize pool) Draftkings contest. Keep that in mind as you determine which player to select as your captain for this one Game Draftkings contest. For me, the clear choice at captain is New York Liberty forward Breanna Stewart.

Flex Plays

Sabrina Ionescu $10,200

Talented New York guard Sabrina Ionescu has provided the stability in the backcourt that the New York Liberty have needed to win games in the 2024 WNBA regular season. How has Sabrina Ionescu been playing recently?

In ten games played for the New York Liberty in the 2024 WNBA regular season, New York guard Sabrina Ionescu averaged a robust 17.9 points, 4.3 rebounds, 5.3 assists, 0,5 blocks and 1 steal a game.

Looking at the data more closely, in the New York Liberty’s ten games played in the 2024 WNBA regular season, New York Liberty guard Sabrina Ionescu averaged 33.7 Draftkings points a game. It has to be said, those are the type of fantasy numbers I need from players I select for my DFS WNBA lineup.

For the reasons just mentioned, I am rolling with New York Liberty guard Sabrina Ionescu as a flex play for tonight’s Draftkings contest.

Additional players I like to play well this evening (Draftkings price noted): Tina Charles $9,400: Chennedy Carter $7,400: Jonquel Jones $9,800: Karlie Samuelson $6,200: Aaliyah Edwards $6,800.
