As I have said in the past, one of the things I like most about playing WNBA DFS on a larger slate is that you don’t necessarily have to choose players from every game. On a three-game slate, you might not have the luxury of fading Minnesota-Los Angeles. In a five-game slate, I think it is the right play. Several players in that game are awfully tempting, especially Sylvia Fowles, Maya Moore, Candace Parker and Chelsea Gray, but there are other really good players who I believe are in better situations. Let’s get to those players right now.

Player  FanDuel Price   DraftKings Price  Comments
A'ja Wilson, F, LV  $    8,200  $     12,500 A'ja Wilson has scored at least 50 fantasy points on DraftKings in five of her last 10 games. Some of the other games have been ugly, but it is hard to argue there is a better GPP play in the league right now. 
Liz Cambage  $    8,000  $     12,200 Liz Cambage has double-doubles in three of her last four games, and she was well on her way against Minnesota before she suffered an eye injury. She had 23 points, seven rebounds, three assists and three blocks against Indiana earlier this season.
Skylar Diggins-Smith  $    8,100  $     11,900 Diggins-Smith had a career-high 35 points as well as 12 rebounds in her first game against Indiana this season. She has scored at least 34.75 fantasy points on DraftKings in each of her last three games.
Diana Taurasi, G, PHO  $    7,800  $     11,800 Taurasi snapped her streak of 10 consecutive games with 18+ points Saturday, shooting 2-13 overall and 1-8 on threes to finish with seven points. She contributed in other ways, with six rebounds and nine assists, and she is virtually guaranteed to shoot better Thursday.
 Tina Charles, F, NY   $    7,900  $     11,500 Charles has been inconsistent all season along with her teammates, but I have to believe she will bounce back after shooting 3-14 against Seattle Tuesday. She is the cheapest of the top forwards but she is just as capable of a big fantasy game.
Chiney Ogwumike, F, CON  $    6,900  $        9,900 I don't understand why she is so cheap. She has four double-doubles in her last nine games, and aside from playing just 15 minutes at Seattle Sunday, she has been remarkably consistent.
Stefanie Dolson, F, CHI  $    6,100  $        9,600 The Aces have allowed the second most fantasy points to opposing forwards this season. Dolson struggled a bit against the Wings Tuesday, but she had at least 30 fantasy points in each of her three previous games, and she is still pretty cheap on FanDuel.
Kristi Toliver, G, CON  $    5,200  $        8,400 There are few things I like more in WNBA DFS than playing Kristi Toliver following a couple of rough shooting performances. Toliver is shooting 30.0 percent from the field and 18.8 percent on threes over her last two games. She is shooting 44.8 and 37.2 percent respectively on the season, and only the Aces have allowed more three-point attempts than the Liberty this season.
Diamond DeShields, G, CHI  $    4,600  $        7,700 Diamond DeShields is averaging 18.6 points, 5.6 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.2 steals on 42.0 percent shooting over the last 10 days. She has at least 10 field goal attempts in each of those games and is averaging 6.6 free throw attempts per game as well. She seems awfully safe, and she dropped 25 points and six rebounds on the Aces earlier this season.
Jonquel Jones, F, CON  $    5,800  $        7,500 Jonquel Jones is averaging 13.0 points, 5.3 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.0 blocks and 1.0 steals in 25.7 minutes over her last three games. I love her price on DraftKings.
Brittany Boyd, G, NY  $    5,100  $        5,900 Boyd has played at least 20 points in each of her last three games, averaging 10.0 points, 3.7 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 2.3 steals over that time. The steals may go down, but otherwise, I don't see why Boyd can't keep it going against the Mystics.
Epiphanny Prince, G, NY  $    4,500  $        5,600 Epihphanny Prince is a poor man's Kristi Toliver. Prince has scored 10 points total on 15.4 percent shooting over her last two games after scoring 21 points and shooting at least 61.5 percent in each of her two games before that. One of the 21-point games came against Washington, which is encouraging.
Azura Stevens, F, DAL  $    4,600  $        4,900 Azura Stevens has scored at least 21.25 fantasy points on DraftKings in three of her last four games, and I'm going to give her a pass for scoring just 12.25 fantasy points against Minnesota in the other game. 
Camille Little, F, PHO  $    3,300  $        3,600 Whoever starts at power forward for Phoenix is a worthwhile punt play. Little should get the first shot so long as her ankle injury doesn't keep her out. We may not know her status until just before tipoff, so she is probably a better play on DraftKings. Stephanie Talbot and Angel Robinson would both be interesting if Little is out.
Cappie Pondexter, G, IND  $    3,200  $        3,600 Cappie had 12 points and five rebounds in 21 minutes in her first game with the Fever Tuesday. That may be her ceiling for the time being, but she is yet another worthwhile punt play.
