BIG MARLEY’S UFC 228 DRAFT KINGS FANTASY BREAKDOWNadmin
There’s a lot of cash to be won DraftKings including a top prize of $25k from the primary tournament. DK also has lots of Qualifier competitions on this week, in which the last event will pay $50k to 1st if you did qualify to play in it. I’ll be pursuing those as well because we’ve not ever had a $50k 1st place prize and I want it. We did have one fight fall away but we still have a 13-fight card. This is a superb card to construct your bankroll to get the first Sunday of NFL so you can chase that $1M.
Cash Game play of the week — Zabit Magomedsharipov ($9,400)
Zabit will be super chalky in championship. Everyone who had Shevchenko within their lineup will switch to Zabit and he will likely be the most owned fighter on the slate. In money games we don’t really care about ownership as much and I am going to be starting my cash team with Zabit. I believe he is the easiest win on the card and he’s the maximum ceiling too. I believe if you would like to get sneaky and not use Zabit, the GPPs would be the place to do that. Lock him and take the win. Then you just need to learn about 3 other wins and you ought to possess a winning cash team.
GPP play of the week — Alex White ($8,600)
I believe Jim Miller is near the finish of his career and I am presuming this is going to be the last time we see him in the UFC. I think he’s going to be given his 5th loss in a row here and I’m guessing it is going to be via knockout. I think Alex White is going to be too strong and quick for Jim Miller at this phase in his career and I believe he will have the ability to keep this battle on the feet. With everyone paying for Zabit in GPPs, Alex White and a few other mid-range favorites might be a good way to go to make your lineups more contrarian and try to find 1st place in a GPP like that. I do like White a good bit in this fight and I think he has 100+ point potential at an $8.6additional salary. He is my GPP drama of the week.
Underdog play of this week — Diego Sanchez ($7,300)
Diego Sanchez is my underdog play of the week since I do not believe Craig White isn’t any good. Sanchez may be entirely shot, and if this is the case he could get KO’d early. But I don’t think Craig White ought to be -200 against any UFC fighter. Diego is cheap enough where it allows you to find some of the higher favorites you like in your lineup, and now I believe he can find a choice win here. He’ll be my choice to win, however it is not a certain pick and I think he makes for a better GPP play than money punt.
Fade of the week — Aljamain Sterling ($8,500)
I am excited about seeing this fight and I will be choosing Aljo for the win . My difficulty is that I don’t think he is quite likely to score highly, and perhaps not even 10x his wages. I believe a whole lot of this struggle will happen on the feet and Aljo doesn’t throw in a high enough speed to score well in a match that is spectacular. He’ll have to find this battle to the ground several times and rack up some advance points for him to score tremendously. I simply don’t see that occurring. I think this is going to be a very close fight and I would rather just pay up for some of the fighters over Sterling. I think we’d be taking a look at a score around 70-75 DK points with an Aljo choice win here.
