UFC 244 Daily Fantasy Picks

Dude, 244 is stacked. This card is just legitimately good, including the ESPN+ pre-lims. Relevant divisional matchups, good test for blue chippers, and of course, Jorge Masvidal vs. Nate Diaz for the title of “baddest muthaf***er”.

And I didn’t even mention Derrick Lewis!!!

Yep, this one is appointment viewing folks, so strap on in and get those DFS lineups ready for a great night of fights

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

  • Corey Anderson ($7,200). Johnny Walker might be the fun up-and-comer, but Anderson has quietly been on a solid run. Walker has not faced a takedown threat like Anderson yet, and I can easily see Anderson dragging the kickboxer to the mat multiple times on the way to a dominant win.
  • Kevin Lee ($7,100) takes on the rampaging Gregor Gillespie in a great bit of matchmaking. Gillespie has been absolutely steamrolling his opposition, but he has not faced a wrestler like the Motown Phenom. Gillespie might prove to be the better wrestler and dictate this fight like all of his others, but he hasn’t proven that yet. Lee is the bigger man, and more than worth a flier at that price.

Avoid

  • Jairzinho Rozenstruik ($8,700) hits really hard. But that’s it. Everything else about his game is pretty much nonexistent. His power means that he could definitely put out the lights of Andrei Arlovski, but the veteran should be smart enough to turn this fight into a grind that Rozenstruik just cannot win.
  • Katlyn Chookagian ($8,900). DraftKings point total for her last three wins: 71 – 61 – 64. That style is not going to win you much in tournaments or 50/50s…
