ESPN’s WNBA fantasy basketball is back for its second season, and there is no shortage of talent in the draft pool. New York’s Breanna Stewart sits atop the pool in the latest ESPN draft rankings, followed by A’ja Wilson and Napheesa Collier.
With a newly revamped roster, the Dallas Wings have plenty of talent to help your fantasy team succeed this season.
Whether you’re a first-time player or a fantasy vet, here are the Dallas Wings players you should pick up to have success this season.
If you want to snag this Wing’s all-star, you better do it quickly. Ogunbowale is ranked as the 8th best available player by ESPN after averaging 19.7 points last season.
It’ll be very interesting to see how Ogunbowale’s play style accommodates first-year head coach Latricia Trammel’s system. However, Ogunbowale is still a safe bet to pick with a high draft choice.
Ranked as the 9th player on ESPN’s draft board, the first-year Dallas Wing could fall in most drafts and be a steal in the 3rd or 4th round.
After being acquired in the offseason, Howard will bring something that no other Dallas Wing has, and that is a WNBA championship. With her coming in and immediately being inserted into the starting lineup, Howard will be a key factor in the Wings’ success this season.
The breakout player of the year for Dallas last season was big Teaira McCowan. After re-signing in the offseason, McCowan would be a good pick for any fantasy team this year.
Last season, in the month of August, McCowan recorded four double-doubles, averaged 17.4 points and 11.6 rebounds, and shot 55% from the field.
Entering her 4th WNBA season, Satou Sabally is a good middle-of-the-draft add for your fantasy team.
The big question for Sabally is whether or not she can stay healthy. In her career, Sabally has only played 44 games. However, there is no doubt that when on the floor, Sabally is one of the best.
Another middle-of-the-draft add would be new Dallas Wings point guard Diamond DeShields. After being picked up from the Mercury in the offseason, DeShields will take over the starting point guard spot from Marina Mabery, who is now with the Chicago Sky.
DeShields is a player who could flourish in Larticia Trammell’s new system. There is no doubt that the Wings’ new PG1 could be in for a breakout season.
During fantasy drafts, one of the interesting questions is if it’s worth it to take a flyer on a rookie player to be an underrated spark for your team. Maddy Siegrist isn’t your typical rookie.
Last season at Villanova, Siegrist averaged 29.2 points per game. The Wings rookie can shoot it with the best of them, and her elite scoring should be able to translate to the W quite nicely.
