(Dave Mandel/Sherdog)Fantasy MMA Guide to UFC Fight Night 74 RJ Gardner August 19, 2015 Events, Previews, Promotions, Spotlight, UFC DraftKings.com is one of the largest and most recognizable fantasy sports sites on the web. Every day DraftKings offers a slew of daily fantasy sports games for real money, and now that MMA is part of action fight fans have been flocking to the site to try their hand at fantasy MMA. As such, we here at The MMA Corner want to help our readers finish in the money so every fight week, we will offer up tips and advice for putting together your DraftKings Fantasy MMA contest lineups. Before we get into this week’s guide, let’s review the basics of Fantasy MMA. For each contest, participants will be given a $50,000 salary cap to select a five-fighter lineup. The fighter pool will consist of all fighters expected to be competing in the upcoming event. Fighter salaries are determined by their past performances and they have nothing to do with what fighters are actually making. Fighters score points in two ways. First there is move scoring; +0.5 for significant strikes, +1 for advancing position, +2 for takedowns, +2 for reversals or sweeps and +3 for knockdowns. Then there are fight conclusion bonuses; +100 for a first round win, +70 for a second round win, +50 for a third round win, +40 for a fourth round win, +40 for a fifth-round win and +25 for a decision win. Fight scoring will be based on FightMetric statistical data. Winning/placing is based on the total score of your five fight lineup. On tap for this week’s Fantasy MMA contests is UFC Fight Night: Holloway vs. Oliveira. First and foremost, the most important key to putting together a winning Fantasy MMA lineup is understanding the true value of win bonuses. When you are selecting your fighters, always make sure to take fighters you believe will win the fight. At the end of the contest, those win bonuses add up and they separate the contest winners from the losers. Value Pick At only $9,400, Patrick Cote is a great value play this weekend. It’s unlikely that we will score a finish against Josh Burkman, but he should outstrike him by a considerable margin. Cote’s only losses since returning to the UFC have been to superior technical strikers. Burkman is not a superior striker so expect Cote to pick up the win. Tip of the Week At $10,600, take Max Holloway over Charles Oliveira. Oliveira is a gifted fighter with a great ground game, but Holloway’s growth as a contender has been simply staggering. Winner of six in a row with five finishes Holloway’s striking will rule the day on Sunday. To get in on all of the DraftKings Fantasy MMA action CLICK HERE to sign up and play.
