For the second DFS WNBA Playbook in a row, reasonably priced guards you can trust are awfully hard to come by. I don’t trust the Lynx, or anyone playing the Lynx. Indiana is trying to balance five different guards, any of whom could see their minutes dip on any given day. Courtney Williams and Jasmine Thomas have been inconsistent all season, and I hate paying for the Dream after they all shot the lights out in their previous game. I was obviously able to find some guards I don’t hate to fill out my cash lineups, but it was tough. Unless you trust Kelsey Plum or Cappie Pondexter more than I do, I recommend you fill out your lineups with the cheapest guards you don’t hate first, and then fill out your forwards, at least for cash lineups. No matter how much money you have left, you should be able to find solid forwards.

Player  FanDuel Price   DraftKings Price  Comments
Elena Delle Donne, F, WAS  $    8,600  $     13,400 Delle Donne is my favorite cash play among the expensive forwards, though affording her is a challenge. She is averaging 22.0 points, 8.5 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 3.0 blocks against the Sky this season.
Maya Moore, F, MIN  $    7,900  $     11,900 Moore rebounded from three poor games with 19 points, nine rebounds, four assists and two steals against Indiana Wednesday. She could easily top those numbers against Las Vegas Friday.
Alyssa Thomas, F, CON  $    7,300  $        9,600 Any concerns that Thomas would be eased back into the rotation following her shoulder injury were answered Wednesday. Thomas played 37 minutes and had 12 points, 10 rebounds, and four assists. 
Candice Dupree, F, IND  $    6,400  $        8,200 Dupree has been up-and-down all season, which isn't surprising for someone who relies so heavily on mid-ranged jumpshots. After she struggled against the Lynx again Wednesday, Dupree has a much better matchup Friday.
Diamond DeShields, G, CHI  $    6,300  $        7,700 DeShields has scored at least 20.5 fantasy points on DraftKings in each of her last eight games, and she is averaging 2.0 steals over her last four games.
Natalie Achonwa, F, IND  $    6,200  $        7,800 Though the Sky are catching up, the Dream have still allowed the most rebounds in the league this season. Achonwa is averaging 10.7 points, 6.7 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 0.7 blocks and 1.3 steals against Atlanta this season.
Stefanie Dolson, F, CHI  $    5,500  $        6,900 Dolson has struggled over the last 10 days, averaging just 12.8 fantasy points on DraftKings. That being said, she was great in the 10 days before that, and she still took nine shots Tuesday despite only making one. Dolson scored 13 points in 14 minutes in her only game against Washington this season, and it is nearly impossible to find that kind of upside at her price.
Victoria Vivians, G, IND  $    5,000  $        7,000 Vivians has seen her field goal attempts and percentage plummet over her last two games, but she still played 30+ minutes in each. She has proven herself to be a streaky shooter, especially on threes, and the Dream have allowed the fourth most three-point attempts this season.
Natasha Cloud, G, WAS  $    4,900  $        7,300 I'm not sure why she costs so little on FanDuel. She is averaging 11.5 points, 4.0 rebounds and 5.0 assists over her last four games.
Seimone Augustus, G, MIN  $    4,500  $        5,600 I want as much exposure to the Aces as possible, and for GPP lineups, that means rolling with Seimone Augustus. She has at least 11 field goal attempts in each of her last two games despite shooting just 37.5 percent in those games.
Camille Little, F, PHO  $    3,700  $        4,700 Little is unlikely to ever be much of a scorer, but she had four rebounds, four assists and four steals in 27 minutes Tuesday. So long as she is starting at power forward, she is a solid punt play.
Tianna Hawkins, F, WAS  $    3,500  $        4,600 LaToya Sanders left Wednesday's game after taking an Angel McCoughtry elbow to the face; she did not return. If Sanders is out Friday, Hawkins is an excellent play. Hawkins is averaging 12.7 points, 6.7 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game as a starter this season.
Endy Miyem, F, MIN  $    3,000  $        3,300 Miyem got the start Wednesday and played 27 minutes with Rebekkah Brunson and Cecilia Zandalasini out. Miyem had three points, two rebounds, three assists, a block and a steal on 1-9 shooting. Ideally, for fantasy, Brunson would sit again and Zandalasini would start, but if both are out, Miyem is a solid punt play.
