I have been playing daily fantasy since 2013, mainly on DraftKings and FanDuel. But in recent years, I have added playing more on SuperDraft and Yahoo Daily Fantasy. There are a lot of benefits to playing on SuperDraft. The best part, in my opinion, is that SuperDraft offers a Multiplier contest. This basically replaces the salary cap we are used to on other daily fantasy sites and assigns every player a multiplier. That’s right, you can literally draft ANY player, but you do want to take into account the multiplier strategy. This makes it much more friendly and easy to play for players just getting into daily fantasy. 

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.

NOTE:  SuperDraft has added the Sunday night game (Chiefs vs. Chargers) to the slate. 

MULTIPLIER STRATEGY:

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.

For reference and to continue to monitor how to use the multiplier to our advantage, I looked at the winning lineup in the large field tournament from Week 10. The average multiplier between the 8 positions was 1.19X in Week 9.

TOP PLAYS FOR WEEK 11:

QUARTERBACKS 

  • Patrick Mahomes, 1.1X – With the primetime game on the slate, Mahomes is in a play as the best QB with the best match-up on the slate.
  • Justin Fields, 1.25X – Even as the highest-scoring QB AGAIN last week, his price did not raise on SuperDraft. Now he has another amazing match-up against the Falcons’ defense, where he should be able to rack up fantasy points through the air and on the ground.
  • Dak Prescott, 1.25X – Playing in one of the higher total games on the slate, Prescott could continue to air it out more.
  • Others – Josh Allen – 1X, Lamar Jackson (Q) – 1.1X, Jalen Hurts – 1.15X, Kirk Cousins – 1.2X, Joe Burrow – 1.25X, Kenny Pickett – 1.6X

 

RUNNING BACKS 

  • Saquon Barkley, 1X – He carried the ball 35 times last week. The Giants should feed Barkley again in another amazing match-up against the best RB match-up of the week against the Lions.
  • Jonathan Taylor, 1.1X – Washington showed how to beat the Eagles last week, run the ball and keep their offense off the field. Taylor got 22 carries last week and should do just that.
  • David Montgomery, 1.3X – If you’re not playing Fields, Montgomery at this price is a great option with Khalil Herbert out.
  • Brian Robinson, 1.4X – Washington gave Robinson 26 rushing attempts last week and he should get a lot of carries Sunday against a horrible Texans’ run defense.
  • Others – Joe Mixon – 1X, Dalvin Cook – 1.1X, Josh Jacobs – 1.1X, Tony Pollard – 1.2X, Kenyon Drake – 1.3X, Antonio Gibson – 1.35X

 

WIDE RECEIVERS

  • Choose your favorite Stud(s) all these alpha receivers are in great spots to put up a ceiling performance. I’ll have at least one of these receivers in my lineups.
  • Justin Jefferson – 1X 
  • Tee Higgins – 1X
  • Davante Adams – 1.05X
  • Stefon Diggs – 1.1X 
  • Others to consider or stack:
    • CeeDee Lamb, 1.7X  – Is SuperDraft broken? How is Lamb priced at 1.7X? This is a lock button at this price in this game environment against the Vikings.
    • AJ Brown – 1.1X or DeVonta Smith – 1.3X- The Eagles’ target tree is now thinner with Dallas Goedert out. Both Eagles receivers are great plays this week since they are off the injury report.
    • Amon-Ra St. Brown, 1.2X – ASB has a 34% target rate and many other underlying metrics suggest another breakout game is coming. He just needs to get back in the endzone.
    • Terry McLaurin, 1.35X – His target share is basically double with Taylor Heinicke vs. what is was with Carson Wentz. Also has a great match-up against the Texans’ pass defense.
    • Courtland Sutton, 1.35X – The Broncos’ offense has been a disaster, but with Jerry Jeudy and KJ Hamler out, Sutton will be the main target against a susceptible Raiders pass defense.
    • Nico Collins, 1.55X – Collins got 10 targets last week and should get a lot of targets against an exploitable Commanders’ secondary.
  • Value Multipliers:  Donovan Peoples-Jones – 1.45X,  George Pickens – 1.45X, Parris Campbell – 1.5X, Quez Watkins – 1.55X
  • Others to consider or stack:  DJ Moore – 1.3X, Michael Pittman – 1.3X, Allen Robinson – 1.35X, Darnell Mooney – 1.4X, Kadarius Toney – 1.4X, Garrett Wilson – 1.4X

Note:  This is an excellent place to look for correlation and stack at least one wide receiver with your quarterback.

TIGHT ENDS 

  • Travis Kelce, 1X – The best tight end on the slate and not even close, so I’m fine paying 1X.
  • TJ Hockenson, 1X – This is a high price, but he should be low-owned and he’s in a great environment.
  • Greg Dulchich, 1.35X – He disappointed last week, but with the Broncos’ receiving weapons depleted, I expect him to get a lot of targets this week.
  • Mark Andrews (Q) – 1.45X – Similar to CeeDee Lamb, this is a misprice! Andrews is questionable but practiced this week so he should play.
  • Other TE ton consider – Dalton Schutz – 1.15X, Cole Kmet – 1.2X, Tyler Higbee – 1.35X, Foster Moreau – 1.45X, Dawson Knox – 1.55X, Hayden Hurst – 1.55X, Jack Stoll or Grant Calcaterra – 1.7X

 

FLEX 

  • 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.

 

FINAL THOUGHTS:

Each week, I will examine the winning lineups in the large SuperDraft tournament to see what sweet spot worked for multipliers. Every season can have its own nuances, so we’ll track data to make sure we have an edge on the field and are using the multipliers correctly and to our advantage.

So be sure to check back every Friday for my SuperDraft preview. And make sure to check back on Sunday to see where the experts are at — CORE PLAYS
