UFC on ESPN 37: Kattar vs. Emmett DraftKings Spreadsheet
Phil Hawes ($9,000) – The lowest priced fighter in the 9k range, Hawes may just be the best. Averaging 106.26 points in victory, Hawes has never scored below 94 points. With knockout power and wrestling, Hawes presents problems for most Middleweight. Facing Deron Winn, who is small for the weight class and has notably faded the later fight goes, I could see Hawes getting the job done inside the distance.
Kevin Holland ($8,900) – Fighting at Welterweight, Holland may be in store for his best performances yet. Averaging 103.97 in victory, with a slate’s best in most points scored in victory at 130.7, Holland is an intriguing play. Especially considering his opponent Tim Means, expertise isn’t Holland’s kryptonite, wrestling.
Calvin Kattar ($8,800) – One half of the main event, Kattar is perhaps the best play in the 8k range. Durable and with an endless gas tank, Kattar assuredly will give you a hard twenty-five minutes or finish his opponent. Averaging 97.67 in victory, with a high of 121.9, Kattar is a perfect play with the extra two rounds in play.
Jeremiah Wells ($8,000) – A potential salary saver at 8k, Wells statistically ranks among the best on the slate in several categories. Of course, the sample size is only two fights, but Wells has look amazing in those two fights. As the only fighter averaging more than 100 points, you could do worse than roster Wells at this steal of a price.
7k and Under Range
Julian Marquez ($7,700) – One of my favorite plays at this range, Marquez will absolutely do anything in his power to score a finish. Averaging 88.1 points, with a high of 105.1 points, Marquez is a fine play. Especially against Gregory Rodrigues, who is an excellent grappler, but tends to strike instead.
Roman Dolidze ($7,400) – Not a play I thought I’d be looking at, Dolidze is statistically one of the better fighters in the price range. Not only is he the only 7k fighter who has averaged more than 80 points, but his lowest point total in victory is the second highest. In other words, his floor in victory is excellent.
Deron Winn ($7,200) – Not someone I want to roster, but understanding his skillset and ability to rack up points with takedowns, he’s not a bad play at this low of a price tag. Averaging the highest points in victory at 112.1, with his lowest point total in victory being 100.3, you could do worse.
Ricardo Ramos ($9,300) – Although I have Ramos winning this fight, he has not been a delight to roster. Among the worst in career points and points in victory, it’s been more of a risk than reward in playing Ramos
Gloria de Paula ($9,200) – Despite believing that she rolls over Maria Oliveira, an opponent who has never beaten anyone relevant, this price tag is too high. Among the absolute bottom of the slate in career points, points in victory and most points scored in victory, de Paula just doesn’t make sense to play at 9.2k.
