There’s a lot of cash to be obtained this week on DraftKings including a top prize of $25k from the primary tournament. DK also has a lot of Qualifier competitions available this week, in which the final event will pay $50k to 1st if you did qualify to play in it. I’ll be chasing those as well since we have not ever had a $50k 1st place prize and I need it. We did have one fight fall away but we still have a 13-fight card. This is a great card to build your bankroll for the very first Sunday of NFL so you can pursue that $1M.
Money Game play of this week — Zabit Magomedsharipov ($9,400)
Zabit is going to be super chalky in tournament. Everyone who’d Shevchenko in their lineup is going to switch to Zabit and that he will probably be the most possessed fighter on the slate. In money games we do not really care about ownership as much and I am going to be starting my money team with Zabit. I believe he’s the simplest win on the card and he’s the highest ceiling too. I believe if you would like to find sneaky and not use Zabit, the GPPs would be the place to do this. Lock him in cash and take the easy triumph. Then you just have to learn about 3 other wins and you should have a winning cash group.
GPP drama of the week — Alex White ($8,600)
I think Jim Miller is near the end of his profession and I am thinking this is going to be the last time we see him in the UFC. I believe he’s going to be handed his 5th loss in a row and I’m guessing it is going to be through knockout. I think Alex White will be too powerful and fast for Jim Miller at this stage in his career and I think he is going to be able to keep this fight on the toes. With everyone paying up for Zabit in GPPs, Alex White and some other mid-range favorites could be a fantastic way to go to make your lineups more contrarian and attempt to get 1st place in a GPP like that. I do like White a good bit in this fight and I think he’s 100+ point possible at an $8.6k salary. He is my GPP play of the week.
Underdog drama of this week — Diego Sanchez ($7,300)
Diego Sanchez is my underdog drama of the week because I don’t think Craig White isn’t any good. Sanchez may be entirely taken, and if this is the situation he can get KO’d early. However, I don’t think Craig White ought to be over -200 against some other UFC fighter. Diego is cheap enough where it lets you get a number of the higher favorites you enjoy on your lineup, and I think he will find a choice win here. He will be my pick to win, but it’s not a confident pick and I believe he makes to get a better GPP play than cash punt.
Fade of this week — Aljamain Sterling ($8,500)
I am excited about seeing this fight and I will be picking Aljo for the win here. My issue is that I do not think he is very likely to score highly, and perhaps not even 10x his salary. I believe a whole lot of this fight will take place on the feet and Aljo does not throw at a high enough speed to score well in a striking match. He will have to get this battle to the ground a few times and stand up some progress points for him to score tremendously. I just don’t see that occurring. I believe this will be a very close fight and I’d rather just cover any of the fighters over Sterling. I think we’d be looking at a score about 70-75 DK points using an Aljo decision win here.
