This weekend we have a free Card on big FOX. We are finally getting the rematch with Dustin Poirier vs Eddie Alvarez after 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 awesome fight here. DraftKings has some decent contests out with this particular card and I was surprised to see that a 20k top prize in their own principal tournament. That’s precisely what I shall personally be chasing and I will be making a lot of LUs to throw into that. Here are a few plays I enjoy for Saturday and my fade of the week:
Cash Game play of the week — Stack (Dustin Poirier $8,800 AND Eddie Alvarez $7,400)
This is an easy way to begin my money LU this week and I expect this to be very popular in most money game formats. These two were on pace for a high scoring struggle in their first fight and I think we’ve got a simple 100+ between the two of them . I believe that the winner of this struggle will score more than 100 points themselves and then we add in all of the sig strikes and other things from the loser as well. But we guarantee ourselves that the triumph. The only way this battle doesn’t score more than 100 DK points is somebody gets kneed in the head illegal and the fight is stopped short….
GPP drama of this week — Hakeem Dawodu ($9,400)
I think that this matchup was set up for Dawodu a win. In addition, I think Islam Makhachev, who is $200 more, will probably be quite highly possessed and this could be a fantastic pivot off him to distinguish your LU a little bit. I do think Dawodu will obtain some decent ownership too but I think he’s a solid GPP drama this week. I feel the most likely outcome in this fight is Dawodu getting a (T)KO win. He must pay off his $9.4k salary if this is the case, particularly if it’s early. He is a very solid striker and we did not get to see that in his UFC debut at which he was upset very early in the fight. This is the best match for him to flaunt his striking and why there was a lot of hype behind him going into his introduction. I believe we could see a 1st round KO here and that makes Hakeem Dawodu my GPP play of the week.
Underdog play of the week — Ion Cutelaba ($7,600)
The main reason Cutelaba is my underdog play of the week is because there is not any way he isn’t scoring at least 10x if he is able to get the win. He’s got big power and may find a 1st round KO score and here over 100 DK points. If he does that with his economical salary of $7.6k he will surely be in the winning lineup. This is a solid fight to target both sides but points per salary wise, Cutelaba has among those higher ceilings on the card. I do not see this battle going to conclusion and the winner should score highly. I think if you’re making numerous lineups this weekend you should definitely have vulnerability to Cutelaba.
Fade of this week — Katlyn Chookagian ($8,700)
I’m fading a few fighters this week , but the individual I never considered using was Katlyn Chookagian. It is not that I don’t think she can win, since she for sure could. But I don’t see her paying off an $8.7k DK salary with a triumph. I believe we would require a complete from her in this struggle to receive 10x that wages and I think that is very unlikely to happen. The most Chookagian has ever scored in a UFC fight up to now in her profession is 83 DK points. That wouldn’t be sufficient here to place her at the winning lineup in her $8.7k price tag. I think if you are making 20 or less lineups this Saturday you can safely fade Chookagian and when she’s a win it should not hurt much.
