Each week, I will look at the overall winning lineup for the main tournament on DraftKings. I will list key takeaways and any notable information that we can use going forward.

This lineup used $49,700 in salary and Grizz113 solo shipped!

The first thing that jumps out to me is the Macy Chiasson play. Me and Brett talked about her as a great pivot play on the ETR show this week. I also wrote her up in the GPP Leverage column this week. It was clear that she was going to be significantly less owned than the other spend up options this week, despite having a clear wrestling path and finishing potential.

Grizz113 also paid up for Thiago Moises as opposed to going with one of the more popular options like Mike Davis or Kennedy Nzechukwu who both underperformed as chalk.

He also targeted fighters like Jafel Filho and Jaqueline Amorim who were among the top ranked fighters in their salary ranges in my DraftKings Fighter Rankings. They both had a clear grappling path to victory along with a strong chance of finishing their opponents so it made sense to target them both heavily.

Lastly, they had Ovince Saint Preux who was the lowest owned fighter on the entire slate at just 4% and ended up coming through and pulling off the upset. Similar to the week when Charles Johnson won as the lowest owned fighter, when those type of plays come through you are very likely not to be duplicated if you have them.

Key takeaways:

  • Leverage spend up play (Macy Chiasson)
  • Pivot Play up top (Thiago Moises)
  • Targeting high-upside grapplers (Amorim and Filho)
  • Super unique punt underdog (Ovince Saint Preux)

Big congrats to Grizz113 for the solo ship this week!

Best of luck next week, and I’ll see you in the streets.
