This weekend we have a free Card big FOX. We’re finally getting the rematch with Dustin Poirier vs Eddie Alvarez following their first fight ended in a No Contest. These are two of the most exciting fighters in the UFC and we ought to observe an wonderful fight here. DraftKings has some adequate contests out with this card and I was amazed to see a $20k top prize in their own main tournament. That’s precisely what I shall personally be chasing and I’ll be making a bunch of LUs to throw to that. Listed below are a few plays I enjoy for Saturday and my fade of the week:
Money Game play of the week — Stack (Dustin Poirier $8,800 AND Eddie Alvarez $7,400)
This is an effortless way to start my money LU this week and I expect this to be quite popular in most money game formats. These two were on pace to get a high scoring fight in their first battle and I believe we’ve got an easy 100+ involving the two of them . I believe the winner of the struggle will score over 100 points themselves and then we add in all the sig strikes and other points from the failure also. But we promise ourselves the win. The only way this battle does not score over a hundred DK points is someone gets kneed in the head illegal and the fight is stopped brief….
GPP drama of this week — Hakeem Dawodu ($9,400)
I think that this matchup was set up for Dawodu a win. I also believe Islam Makhachev, who’s $200 more, will be very highly possessed and this could be a good pivot him off to differentiate your LU a little bit. I do think Dawodu will gain some good ownership too but I think he is a solid GPP drama this week. I feel the most probable outcome in this fight is Dawodu getting a (T)KO win. He should pay his off $9.4k salary if this is the case, especially if it is early. He’s a very good striker and we did not get to see that in his UFC debut at which he had been angry very early in the fight. This is the best fit for him to flaunt his striking and why there was a lot of hype behind him moving to his introduction. I think we can see a 1st round KO here and that makes Hakeem Dawodu my GPP drama of this week.
Underdog drama of this week — Ion Cutelaba ($7,600)
The main reason Cutelaba is my underdog drama of this week is because there’s not any way he is not scoring at least 10x when he is able to get the win. He has big power and may find a 1st round KO here and score over 100 DK points. If he does this with his cheap salary of $7.6k he’ll certainly be at the winning lineup. This is a good fight to target either side but points per wages wise, Cutelaba has among the higher ceilings on the card. I don’t see this battle going to conclusion and the winner should score highly. I think if you are making multiple lineups this weekend you must definitely have exposure to Cutelaba.
Fade of this week — Katlyn Chookagian ($8,700)
I’m fading a few fighters this week , but the person I never considered using was Katlyn Chookagian. It’s not that I don’t think she can win, because she for sure could. But I do not see her paying off an $8.7k DK salary with a win. I think we’d require a finish from her in this fight to receive 10x that salary and I believe that is very unlikely to take place. The most Chookagian has scored in a UFC fight up to now in her career is 83 DK points. That wouldn’t be enough here to put her in the winning lineup at her $8.7k price label. I think if you’re earning 20 or less lineups this Saturday you may safely fade Chookagian and when she’s a win it shouldn’t hurt much.
