UFC 238 Daily Fantasy Picks

Damn son, this is a FIGHT CARD. The main event is… interesting… but it should serve to answer questions about both Henry Cejudo and Marlon Moraes. And underneath the headliner, this card is packed with action fights, relevant divisional matchups, fan favorites, and hyped prospects. You name it, you got it.

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

  • Marlon Moraes ($8,300) is a killer. His finishing instincts are well documented in the UFC, as are Henry Cejudo’s defensive tendencies. Cejudo is obviously a tough mofo, but is also “moving up” a weight class, and Moraes’s opportunistic tendencies will most likely be rewarded.
  • I’m doing it. I’m rolling with Donald Cerrone ($7,600). The new dad strength Cowboy has been on a tear, and his technical improvements are no joke. Granted, Tony Ferguson is insanely good, but he also tends to get pieced up in the first round before he finds his groove. The new Cowboy can take advantage of that opening and at that price I’m going to ride with him.

Avoid

  • Yan Xiaonan ($9,100) is normally the kind of fighter I love to roster – aggressive and hits hard. However, she is at a serious experience disadvantage against Angela Hill, and that price tag just isn’t justified. I would roster Yan in a heartbeat if she was cheaper than $8,000, but over $9K? Forget about it.
  • Joanne Calderwood ($8,100) will be frustrated by Katlyn Chookagian’s range game. I’d honestly just avoid this fight altogether.
