DFS WNBA Playbook & Optimal Lineups: August 8
Steve Pimental provides the best DFS plays and optimal lineups for Tuesday's WNBA slate.
I think I have gotten a bit spoiled lately with all of the five and six-game WNBA slates. There are just three games on Tuesday’s slate, but the good news is you can still watch at least one of the games even if you didn’t play for WNBA Game Pass like I did. Tuesday’s game between the Storm and the Sun will be streaming live on Twitter at 7 pm ET. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to watch that game live, but feel free to tweet at me and let me know how the game is going and how your lineups are doing.
With so few games Tuesday, quality DFS plays can be hard to come by. The matchups themselves don’t make it any easier. The Lynx are the best defensive team in the country, and they might be even better Tuesday considering Lindsay Whalen is out and she has the third-worst defensive rating on the team. I can’t possibly justify playing any of the Atlanta forwards against the Lynx, and even their talented guard trio is too risky for my liking.
Similarly, I don’t know how you trust any...
