OVERVIEW OF HOW SUPERDRAFT WORKS VS OTHER DFS PLATFORMS:
In the multiplier contests, you will draft 8 players on your lineup. This includes:
1 QB, 2 RBs, 3 WRs, 1 TE, 1 Flex (NO Defense!)
Scoring is very similar to Fanduel as it is .5 point per reception or half-point PPR. It does offer player bonuses similar to DraftKings. There is a 100-yard bonus for running backs and wide receivers and a 300-yard passing bonus for quarterbacks. All bonuses give 2 additional points. The multipliers assigned to players can be anywhere from 1x-2x and anywhere in between. So take this into account and factor in your projection for each player.
Obviously, each week will be unique in terms of scoring, and where you want to “spend”. In SuperDraft, I am fine with playing some of the top 1X players. Let other people make mistakes by fading the studs. The strategy is to find the right mix and combo of 1X players and players that are in a good spot with a good multiplier.
The multipliers are not going to be as wide-ranging on a short slate. So there be a lot 1X-1.2X plays. Look for high upside for every spot regardless of the multiplier. And of course, if there are any sneaky good multiplier values, I’ll note them below.
Also, note that SuperDraft’s main contests are for the full 4-game slate so I’m considering all four games for these core plays.
TOP PLAYS FOR THE DIVISIONAL ROUND:
- Josh Allen (1.1X) – The highest projected QB on this slate with an excellent floor/ceiling combo.
- Jalen Hurts – (1.15X) – Hurts put up a massive fantasy performance in the first game against the Giants and could be overlooked this weekend.
- Joe Burrow (1.25X) – Burrow will be exchanging blows with Allen in a potential shootout. Love this price.
- Brock Purdy (1.35X) – It took me awhile to realize Purdy is more than just a game manager. Has a tough matchup this week, but with the weapons around him, I like going back to him at this price.
- Patrick Mahomes (1X) – We know Mahomes’ ceiling and should be lower-owned.
- Daniel Jones (1.15X) – This is not a good price and tough matchup but he’s running a lot and in a trailing script.
- Dak Prescott (1.2x) – 49ers are better against the run than the pass and Prescott could be playing in a trailing game script.
- Trevor Lawrence (1.3X) – I sound like a broken record, but good price for a trailing game script and needing a ton of pass attempts.
- Christian McCaffery (1X) – CMC is the clear RB1 on this slate.
- Saquon Barkley (1X) – This Giants offense runs through Barkley and will probably have to check down to him more. Their only chance to win is to give him a ton of volume.
- Jerick McKinnon (1.25X) – The guy just keeps scoring touchdowns and Andy Reid knows how to use him as a weapon.
- James Cook (1.25X) – The rookie is getting more touches each week. Found the endzone last week. Not many RB multipliers are very high, so this seems like a good value for the explosive rookie.
- Others – Travis Etienne (1.2X), Joe Mixon (1.2X), Miles Sanders (1.2X), Tony Pollard (1.2X)
- Choose your favorite Stud(s) and Stacks – all these alpha receivers are in great spots to put up a ceiling performance.
- Ja’Marr Chase (1X) and Tee Higgins (1.2X)
- AJ Brown (1.05X) and DeVonta Smith (1.25X)
- Stefon Diggs (1.05X) and Gabe Davis (1.2X)
- Deebo Samuel (1.15X) and Brandon Aiyuk (1.25X)
- Values to consider or stack:
- CeeDee Lamb (1.1X) – Ranked 4th among receivers in targets and 10th in air yards. Lamb is the Cowboys’ go-to target.
- Giants WR – Darius Slayton (1.2X), Richie James Jr. (1.25X), Isaiah Hodgins (1.3X) – All these Giants’ receivers are in play at these prices. I would probably just use one on SuperDraft with all the studs. I personally like Hodgins the best.
- Jaguars WR – Christian Kirk (1.2X) and Zay Jones (1.25X) and Marvin Jones (1.7X) – Similar to the Giants, all the Jaguars’ receivers are in play since they’ll likely be throwing a lot. I like Kirk the best or Jones for the multiplier.
- Other Values – Kadarius Toney (1.2X), JuJu Smith-Schuster (1.25X), Tyler Boyd (1.25X), Michael Gallup (1.3X)
- Note: This is an excellent place to look for correlation and stack at least one wide receiver with your quarterback.
- Travis Kelce (1X) – On a slate with a lot of great tight ends, Kelce is still the alpha TE1.
- George Kittle (1.2X) – Limited targets last week, but hopefully goes back to being a key target for Purdy.
- Dallas Goedert (1.25X) – We saw what Hockenson did against the Giants’s defense last week. I love Goedert this week.
- Other TE to consider:
- Dalton Schultz (1.2X)
- Evan Engram (1.25X)
- Dawson Knox (1.25X)
- Hayden Hurst (1.25X)
- Try to target a player in a high total game to stack up for more correlation or a player with an extreme multiplier in a good spot. Either way, try to target a player that has a good chance to reach their 100-yard bonus and find the endzone.
