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.

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 1.26X in Week 13.

TOP PLAYS FOR WEEK 14:

QUARTERBACKS 

  • Josh Allen (1X), Jalen Hurts (1.1X), Patrick Mahomes (1.15X) – This seems like a cop-out answer, but all three of these QBs have great floor/ceiling combos. They are all playing in games with a large spread so there’s some blowout risk.
  • Dak Prescott (1.25X) – Dak is playing in the ultimate blowout risk spot. But would we be surprised if he threw for 4 TDs in 3 quarters? At this multiplier, the upside is interesting since everyone is interested in the Cowboys’ running game (for good reason).
  • Kirk Cousins (1.3X) and Jared Goff (1.35X) – Another cop-out, but this Vikings/Lions game is the one everyone is gravitating to an for good reason with its high total indoors. You could game stack this game with either QB.
  • Geno Smith (1.35X) – I was a doubter early this season, but Smith continues to put up consistent fantasy numbers and now is in a great spot at home against the Panthers.
  • Others – Joe Burrow (1.2X), Tyler Huntley (1.4X), Russell Wilson (1.5X), Kenny Pickett (1.5X)

 

RUNNING BACKS 

  • Christian McCaffery (1X) – With a backup QB, the 49ers will need to rely even more on CMC in this offense.
  • Derrick Henry (1.05X) –  It’s well established that Henry destroys the Jaguars. Especially without receiving weapons, the Titans will need to feed Henry.
  • Tony Pollard (1.15X) and Zeke Elliott (1.25X) – Either Cowboys running back could be a good play in a likely blowout script against this horrible Texans defense.
  • DAndre Swift (1.25X) – A great way to get exposure to this high total game. Swift has been getting more of a workload the past couple of games so hopefully that trend continues against the Vikings.
  • DOnta Foreman (1.25X) – Foreman got the full workload last week and if he gets that same workload against the Seahawks, he’s in a great spot.
  • Others – Dalvin Cook (1.1X), Joe Mixon (1.15X), Najee Harris (1.3X), Racaad White (1.3X),  Latavius Murray (1.3X), James Cook (1.3X)

 

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 or two of these receivers in my lineups.
  • Justin Jefferson (1X)
  • AJ Brown (1.05X)
  • Stefon Diggs (1.05X)
  • Amon-Ra St. Brown (1.1X)
  • Ja’Marr Chase (1.1X)
  • Others to consider or stack:
    • DK Metcalf (1.2X)  and Tyler Lockett (1.25X) – Both Seahawks’ receivers are great plays against the Panthers’ defense and to pair with Geno Smith.
    • Christian Kirk (1.2X) – The Titans’ defense is a pass funnel to target.
    • Garrett Wilson (1.2X) – Wilson has exploded the last two weeks, and I’m not jumping off now in a likely negative, pass-happy game script for the Jets this week.
    • DJ Moore (1.3X) – Good game script for Moore who seems to produce better with Sam Darnold at QB.
    • George Pickens (1.4X) – Squeaky wheel narrative? We’ll see if it’s this week, but the George Pickens breakout week is coming soon.
    • Others:  Chris Godwin (1.15X), CeeDee Lamb (1.2X), Tee Higgins (1.2X), DeVonta Smith (1.3X), Jerry Jeudy (1.3X)
  • Other Value Multipliers:
  • Gabe Davis (1.35X)
  • DJ Chark (1.4X)
  • Chris Moore (1.4X)
  • Kendall Hinton (1.4X)
  • Elijah Moore (1.4X)
  • Isaiah Hodgins (1.5X)

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 undisputed TE1 with immense upside in any game.
  • Mark Andrews (1.1X) – Mark Andrews’ target share from Tyler Huntley last year was immense. Look for the same on Sunday.
  • TJ Hockenson (1.15X) – Revenge game against the Lions in the highest total game of the week.
  • Other TE to consider:
  • Pat Friermuth – 1.2X
  • George Kittle – 1.25X
  • David Njoku – 1.3X
  • Evan Engram – 1.35X
  • Greg Dulchich – 1.4X
  • Cade Otten – 1.65X
  • Chigoziem Okonkwo – 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
