Some notes through 12 games in the WNBA season so far:
* The average team is scoring 87 points per game.
* Despite not having Elena Delle Done, Tina Charles, and more, the champion Washington Mystics lead the league in efficiency at 114.8 points per 100 possessions. Right behind them are the Seattle Storm at 111.2, and these teams face each other tonight.
* The Storm are also the most efficient team defensively, allowing just 86.1 points per 100.
* Myisha Hines-Allen averaged 2.3 points per game last season for the champion Mystics. She’s at 21.5 per game so far this season.
And with that, we take a look at the lineups and see what’s available, and make some picks to help fill out your DFS roster.
Guard: Allie Quigley ($6,900)
It’s going to be harder for her backcourt-and-life-partner Courtney Vandersloot to get space tonight after her near triple-double in the last game, so Quigley should start to have more room to make shots. The Lynx coughed up a ton to the backcourt of the Seattle Storm the last time out, and she’s been a bucket for her 12 years in the league, the last three as an All-Star. Her shooting slump to start the season shouldn’t last very long.
Forward: Napheesa Collier ($9,800)
The 2019 Rookie of The Year should have free reign over a Sky front court that hasn’t really stopped anyone yet. Though her efficiency numbers haven’t been great to open the season (9-24 from the floor), that hurts less in DFS than it does on the court. Expect the UConn grad to find plenty of room to score and rebound with abandon tonight.
Flex: Aerial Powers ($8,100)
Even the best defensive team in the league can’t guard everyone, and the emergence of Myisha Hines-Allen as a bonafide superstar in Bradenton means she’ll be a focus of attention tonight. That should leave room for Powers who should get a ton of shots, and remember bricks don’t lose points in DFS. Her costing below an average player, especially with the added value of rebounds and assists, should have her post a big number this evening.
