WNBA DFS: Candace Parker and top picks for June 21 FanDuel, DraftKings daily Fantasy basketball lineups

The 2019 WNBA season continues on Friday with a three-game slate and tens of thousands of dollars on the line in WNBA DFS tournaments and cash games on FanDuel and DraftKings. The action begins at 7:30 p.m. ET when the Atlanta Dream take on the league-leading Connecticut Sun led by Jonquel Jones. Other stars in action include Seattle Storm forward Natasha Howard and Chicago Sky guard Courtney Vandersloot. They're sure to be among the most popular selections for WNBA DFS lineups on Friday night. But affording top talent requires that you find balance throughout the rest of your roster and SportsLine DFS expert Jacob Gibbs has a history of helping DFS players extract maximum value for every dollar spent. So before you make your WNBA DFS picks, be sure to check out his lineups.

Gibbs is a data-driven daily Fantasy sports specialist who's never had a losing season. He got his start in DFS six years ago, turning a $25 deposit into nearly $3,000 his first season. Last season, Gibbs scored big in WNBA daily Fantasy basketball tournaments, returning 81.4 percent profit on his investments. He also cashed 61 percent of the time in cash games.

Now, using his proven WNBA projection model that takes matchups, injuries and player history into account, Gibbs has studied the WNBA schedule for June 21 and revealed his top WNBA DFS picks and lineups over at SportsLine. 

One of the top WNBA picks Gibbs is high on for Friday: Candace Parker at $7,600 on FanDuel and $8,000 on DraftKings. Parker missed her first seven games of the 2019 season with a hamstring injury but made her return on Tuesday against the Washington Mystics. That return didn't go as planned as she hit just 1-of-9 from the field, but she did make multi-category contributions with five rebounds, three assists and two steals. Parker averaged 17.6 points, 8.2 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game last season, so take advantage of the low price while you still can.

He's also rostering Seattle Storm guard Jewell Loyd at $7,400 on FanDuel and $9,100 on DraftKings. Loyd has been extremely consistent this year, scoring in double-figures in all nine of the games she's played so far this year. She's also had four games of at least three steals this year and those active hands and a willingness to share the basketball have helped her put up an average of 28.4 points on DraftKings per game. She's got a quality matchup on Friday night against the Los Angeles Sparks, who are allowing the eight-most DFS points to opponents in the league right now.

Gibbs is also targeting another player with a dream matchup on Friday. The stars are aligning for her to return huge 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.
