1DFS WNBA FanDuel Advice 5/20/18
Wow, I don’t know if I’ve ever played a six-game WNBA slate before. Usually, we are lucky to get three or four games, but I won’t complain. If you have never played WNBA DFS before, there are a ton of differences when compared to the NBA.
The first thing you will notice is they don’t break down the positions the same as the NBA. We have three guard spots and four forwards spots, so there is a lot more flexibility when building a roster. The NBA also has nine roster spots compared to seven spots for WNBA, and, finally, the salary cap is only $40,000 compared to the $60,000 cap for the NBA.
Roster construction is going to take some getting used to if this is your first time playing, but once you figure it out, putting together a roster you feel good about actually is a bit easier then in the NBA — or at least it was last season.
Let me add this disclaimer before we get started. I am by no means an expert on the WNBA in general, but I have found a few good resources and with a little research, I’ve been able to be pretty successful winning money in this sport.
One of the best resources I will use is WNBA expert Sirvasha Evans from the Top Flight DFS Facebook group. You can request to join the group by clicking here or searching for Top Flight DFS on Facebook. Joining is completely free. She will put out some nice little tidbits about each slate and is a great source of DFS advice.
