There is a lot of money to be obtained DraftKings including a top prize of $25k in the main tournament. DK also has lots of Qualifier contests available this week, in which the final event will pay $50k into 1st for those who did qualify to play inside. I will be pursuing those as well since we have not ever had a $50k 1st place prize and I want it. We did have one struggle fall away but we still have a 13-fight card. This is a great card to construct your bankroll to get the very first Sunday of NFL so it’s possible to chase that $1M.
Money Game play of this week — Zabit Magomedsharipov ($9,400)
Zabit is going to be super chalky in tournament. Everybody who’d Shevchenko in their lineup will change to Zabit and he will likely be the most possessed fighter on the slate. In money games we do not really care about possession as much and I will be starting my money team with Zabit. I think he is the easiest win on the card and he’s the highest ceiling too. I believe if you want to find sneaky and not utilize Zabit, the GPPs would be the place to do this. Lock him in money and take the easy win. Then you just have to learn about 3 other wins and you should have a winning money group.
GPP drama of this week — Alex White ($8,600)
I believe Jim Miller is near the finish of his profession and I am presuming this will be the last time we see him in the UFC. I believe he is going to be handed his 5th loss in a row here and I’m guessing it will be through knockout. I think Alex White is going to be too powerful and fast for Jim Miller at this stage in his career and I believe he is going to be able to keep this battle on the feet. With everyone paying for Zabit in GPPs, Alex White and a few other mid-range favorites could be a good way to go to create your lineups more contrarian and attempt to get 1st place in a GPP that way. I do like White a fantastic bit in this struggle and I think he has 100+ point possible at an $8.6additional salary. For that reason, he is my GPP play of the week.
Underdog play of the week — Diego Sanchez ($7,300)
Diego Sanchez is my underdog play of the week because I don’t believe Craig White isn’t any good. Sanchez may be completely shot, and if this is the case he could get KO’d early. However, I really don’t think Craig White should be -200 against some other UFC fighter. Diego is economical enough where it allows you to find a number of those higher favorites you enjoy in your lineup, and I think he can get a choice win here. He’ll be my choice to win, but it is not a confident pick and I believe he makes for a better GPP play than cash punt.
Fade of this week — Aljamain Sterling ($8,500)
I’m excited about seeing this battle and I’ll be choosing Aljo to get the win here. My issue is that I don’t think he is quite likely to score highly, and maybe not even 10x his salary. I think a lot of this struggle 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 need to find this fight to the floor a few times and rack up some advance points for him to score tremendously. I don’t see that occurring. I believe this will be a very close fight and I would rather just pay up for any of the fighters over Sterling. I think we’d be taking a look at a score about 70-75 DK points using an Aljo decision win here.
