UFC Fight Night 146 Daily Fantasy Picks

Wichita, Kansas gets a UFC card this weekend, headlined by former heavyweight champ Junior dos Santos vs. the people’s heavyweight champ Derrick Lewis. Watch for the post-fight interview, if nothing else.

I use DraftKings for my UFC daily fantasy fix, so if you don’t have an account you can sign up here (and get a 50% bonus on your initial deposit). Also, you can check out the scoring criteria here. Now let’s get down to business.

Value Picks

  • The price to roster Niko Price ($7,400) is far too low… Both he and his opponent are more than capable of bringing the violence, and Price’s finishing ability is legitimately incredible. How many fighters can KO their opponent with hammer fists from the bottom?
  • Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos ($8,000) vs. Curtis Millender is going to be fire. You’re going to want one of them, and Zaleski dos Santos is the cheaper option.

Avoid

  • Omari Akhmedov ($8,500) has serious KO power and fights like a man possessed… for one round. Throughout his entire career he’s completely gassed himself by the second bell, meaning his opponent has 10 minutes to have their way. Tim Boetsch will do just that.
  • Alex Morono ($9,100) is a fun fighter, but he’s just not that good. Ottow isn’t a contender by any stretch, but he is a solid UFC fighter who should be able to impose his own game plan for the most part.
