UFC fighter Eryk Anders

UFC Brazil gives us some nice underdog plays while also making you decide which way to go when targeting the high priced fighters. There are 3 fights expected to end inside the distance “ITD”; I can possible see 2 others that might not go to a decision. When building my initial lines I was able to roster 4 fighters favored to win 2 of those being in the fights expected to end with a finish. By using 2 of the dog plays you can roster a mid 8k fighter and target another high priced fighter. Now here’s where it gets tricky. Will you pay up for Valentina or just take the discount on Anders or Santos. There’s less risk on taking Valentina but will she cover her high salary if she doesn’t finish her opponent quickly? In MMA DFS you want to target the fighters with the highest potential to finish quick or grapplers. You want a fighter who will be working for takedowns and transitions. The more takedowns; the more action the higher the score. Now let’s get to the picks…

Machida +220 vs Anders-270
Anders via KO
Anders $8900 -210 ITD prop
71 SS & 2 TDs Proj. 90-120+
Machida 3 fight losing streak all KOs or Submissions. I really fell UFC is giving Anders the push here by putting him up against Machida. This will be a true test vs Ex-champion & one of the all time best in the sport.

What's up everyone my name is Gersan Valdez. You can follow me on twitter @Jobus_dfs. I've been playing Daily Fantasy Sports since 2010 and Season Long Fantasy since 2008. It was not long after that I came across Fantasy Couch. I would #AskTheBrain my own sit & start questions. With every year I played I would learn more and more. Fast forward almost 10 years and now I'm here to offer you advice and help you build your daily fantasy teams. My specialty being in MLB, where I play mostly cash games with a few GPPs. Looking to win that monster pay day. I also do MMA; a sport I've been following since my teenage years, watching the very first UFC on PPV. Of course let's not forget NFL, the sport that started it all for me in fantasy. So shoot me a tweet anytime. I'm always willing to help or just chat it up about the latest movie or episode of GOT.
