DraftKings Thoughts – August 10

Posted on

I am still in the midst of compiling some data from a DraftKings standpoint, however I wanted to highlight a couple of players on interest for the slate today:

  1. If you are looking for a high salary player with the potential for a very one-sided match, my top selection for that would be Aryna Sabalenka at $10,000. She has the advantage in a number of key areas against Madison Brengle, and if Sabalenka is on early then there is the potential for a big victory, and in-turn a great score to build on for today.
  2. In terms of upset potential, the two lower salary players that I think could be worth including in a team are Caty McNally at $6,700 and Linda Fruhvirtova at $4,900. Jabeur didn’t look to be in top form in her UTS appearance the other week, and for more information on why I think Fruhvirtova may be value, check out my article on her match with Kristyna Pliskova here.
  3. In terms of the $7,000-9,600 salary range, the players that look to be best value me today are Elise Mertens at $9,600 and Jennifer Brady at $8,900.

If you have any questions regarding specific players, please don’t hesitate to get in touch on Twitter. Good luck if you are entering a team today.
