WNBA DFS: Sylvia Fowles and top picks for June 1 FanDuel, DraftKings lineups

June gets underway with a full evening of WNBA action on Saturday. New York Liberty vs. Indiana Fever and Atlanta Dream vs. Washington Mystics both tip at 7 p.m. ET, while a pair of games get underway at 8 p.m. ET as well when Seattle Storm vs. Chicago Sky and Minnesota Lynx vs. Dallas Wings both tip off. That means there will be a large player pool for WNBA tournaments and cash games on sites such as FanDuel and DraftKings, and the key to cashing in is mixing the right big names with value picks that others don't see coming. And before locking in any WNBA DFS picks of your own for Saturday, June 1, first be sure to see what Jacob Gibbs has to say. He's a WNBA guru over at SportsLine and his optimal WNBA DFS lineups and advice can help you make all the right calls on Saturday. 

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 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 1 and revealed his top WNBA DFS picks and lineups over at SportsLine. 

One of the top WNBA DFS picks Gibbs is high on for Saturday: Sylvia Fowles at $8,200 on FanDuel and $12,000 on DraftKings. The 2017 WNBA MVP is one of the most consistent players on the boards in the league. She's already grabbed 23 rebounds through two games in 2019, so even when she has slow scoring nights, like when she only had six points earlier this week against Seattle, she can still return plenty of value. 

Part of Gibbs' optimal WNBA DFS strategy for Saturday includes targeting Sky guard Diamond DeShields at $6,100 on FanDuel and $8,200 on DraftKings. The second-year player out of Tennessee came on strong at the end of 2018, scoring at least 24 points in her final three games, and she'll look to build off that as the 2019 season continues to get underway. 

Gibbs is also targeting another player with a dream matchup on Saturday. The stars are aligning for her to return huge points on both sites, and she comes at a lower price than you would expect. This pick could be the difference between winning your tournaments and cash games or going home with nothing.
