WNBA DFS: Skylar Diggins-Smith and top picks for July 17 FanDuel, DraftKings daily fantasy basketball lineups

Before you set your DFS lineups for WNBA action on Tuesday, July 17, you need to hear what professional DFS player Mike McClure has to say. McClure has nearly $2 million in career DFS winnings and has cashed huge on numerous tournament and cash game rosters in NBA, MLB, NFL, golf, NASCAR and other sports.

A predictive data engineer specializing in player projections and advanced statistical analysis, McClure is the go-to authority when it comes to optimal DFS lineups, and now he's sharing his WNBA picks only over at SportsLine.

On Sunday, McClure rostered Phoenix Mercury center Brittney Griner at $8,500 on FanDuel. The result: She had a massive night with 36 points and 12 rebounds. Anybody who had her in their lineup was well on the way to a profitable night.

For Tuesday's two-game slate, McClure likes Dallas Wings forward Azura Stevens at $6,200 on FanDuel and $14,400 on DraftKings.

Stevens, a 6-foot-6 post player out of UConn, has put big numbers up recently, scoring at least a dozen points in five of her last six games. She has also grabbed at least six rebounds in her last three starts and regularly records multiple blocked shots per game. She's a value pick who needs to be in your roster on Tuesday.

McClure is stacking Stevens with guard Skylar Diggins-Smith, who is $8,600 on FanDuel and $19,500 on DraftKings.

Diggins-Smith has also put up big numbers recently, averaging 23.8 points in her last four outings. And both players get a mouthwatering matchup against the New York Liberty on Tuesday, a team that gives up 83.5 points per game -- the fourth-worst mark in the WNBA.

McClure is also targeting a player capable of putting up big numbers who has a dream matchup on Tuesday. The stars are aligning for her to go off for 30, even 40 points on both sites, and she comes at a price that won't break the bank. This pick could be the difference between winning your tournaments and cash games or going home with nothing.
