There’s a good deal of cash to be obtained DraftKings including a top prize of $25k in the tournament. DK also has lots of Qualifier competitions on this week, in which the final event will pay $50k to 1st for those who did qualify to play in it. I’ll be chasing those as well because we have never 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 very first Sunday of NFL so you can chase that $1M.
Cash Game play of this week — Zabit Magomedsharipov ($9,400)
Zabit will be super chalky in tournament. Everybody who’d Shevchenko within their lineup is going to switch to Zabit and that he will probably be the most possessed fighter on the slate. In cash games we don’t care about possession as much and I am going to be starting my money team with Zabit. I believe he’s the simplest triumph on the card and he’s the maximum ceiling too. I think if you want to get sneaky and not utilize Zabit, the GPPs would be the place to do that. Lock him and choose the easy win. Then you just have to find about 3 other wins and you should have a winning cash group.
GPP drama of this week — Alex White ($8,600)
I believe Jim Miller is near the finish of his career and I am thinking this will be the final time we see him at the UFC. I believe he’s going to be given his 5th loss in a row and I am guessing it will be through knockout. I believe Alex White will 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 some other mid-range favorites might be a good way to go to create your lineups more contrarian and try to get 1st place in a GPP like that. I really do like White a fantastic bit in this struggle and I think he’s 100+ point possible at a $8.6additional salary. He is my GPP drama of the week.
Underdog play of the week — Diego Sanchez ($7,300)
Diego Sanchez is my underdog play of the week since I do not think Craig White is any good. Sanchez may be completely taken, and if this is the situation he can get KO’d early. But I don’t think Craig White ought to be -200 against some other UFC fighter. Diego is cheap enough where it allows you to find some of the higher favorites you enjoy on your lineup, and now I think he can get a choice win here. He will be my choice to win, however it is not a certain pick and I think he makes for a better GPP play than cash punt.
Fade of the week — Aljamain Sterling ($8,500)
I am excited about seeing this battle and I will be picking Aljo for the win . My difficulty is that I do not believe he is very likely to score highly, and maybe not even 10x his wages. I think a whole lot of this fight will happen on the toes and Aljo doesn’t throw at a high enough pace to score well in a match that is spectacular. He will need to find this battle to the ground several times and stand up some progress points for him to score highly. I don’t see this occurring. I believe this is going to be a very close fight and I’d rather just cover some of the fighters over Sterling. I think we would be looking at a score around 70-75 DK points with an Aljo choice win here.
