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 1.23X in Week 14.

TOP PLAYS FOR WEEK 15:

QUARTERBACKS 

  • Jalen Hurts (1.1X), Patrick Mahomes (1.1X), Justin Fields (1.15X)- This seems like a cop-out answer, but all three of these QBs have great floor/ceiling combos.
  • Dak Prescott (1.2X) – Cowboys have been leaning on the run game of late but this is a great match-up for Dak and the passing game.
  • Justin Herbert (1.25X) – Herbert is in the ultimate pass funnel spot against the Titans’ pass defense.
  • Joe Burrow (1.25X) – Burrow seems to be heating up for a playoff run.
  • Others – Trevor Lawrence – Q (1.35X), Desmond Ridder (1.5X)

 

RUNNING BACKS 

  • Austin Ekeler (1X) – Ekeler can be played on his own or with Herbert against the Titans’ defense.
  • Derrick Henry (1.05X) –  Just like we want to target Herbert and his receivers against the Titans’ pass defense, we want to target running backs against the Chargers’ defense in the same game.
  • Dallas RBs – Tony Pollard (1.1X) and Zeke Elliott (1.3X) – Either Cowboys running back could be a good play in a likely positive game script.
  • Patriots RBs – Rhamondre Stevenson if Active (1.1X)/Pierre Strong (1.7X) or Kevin Harris (1.7X) if Stevenson is Out – This one is tricky but something to monitor. If Stevenson is out, one of these Pats’ RBs should be a great value play.
  • James Conner (1.2X) – With Murray out, the Cards’ may lean on Conner more and he’s getting the full workload.
  • Zonovan Knight (1.3X) – Great usage last few games and an excellent matchup against the Lions.
  • Others – Josh Jacobs Q (1X), Alvin Kamara (1.15X), Miles Sanders (1.15X)

 

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.
  • Davante Adams (1X)
  • AJ Brown (1.05X)
  • Ja’Marr Chase (1.05X)
  • Amon-Ra St. Brown (1.1X)
  • Others to consider or stack:
    • Chargers WRs – Keenan Allen (1.15X) and Mike Williams (1.25X) – Just like Herbert, I love the receivers against the pass-funnel Titans’ defense.
    • CeeDee Lamb (1.2X) – Just like Dak, this could be a great spot for Lamb too.
    • Garrett Wilson (1.2X) – Wilson has looked amazing and while Zach Wilson as his QB is a downgrade, he should be the go-to target in a great match-up.
    • Chris Olave (1.25X) – Love the opportunity and match-up for Olave against the weak Falcons’ defense.
    • Others:  DeVonta Smith (1.2X), Christian Kirk (1.2X), JuJu Smith-Schuster (1.25X), George Pickens (1.3X)
  • Other Value Multipliers:
  • Drake London (1.4X)
  • Elijah Moore (1.4X)
  • Chris Moore (1.4X)
  • Zay Jones (1.4X)
  • Trenton Irwin (1.45X) – if Higgins and Boyd are Out.
  • Nelson Agholar (1.4X), Kendrick Bourne (1.7X), Tyquan Thornton (1.7X)

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) – Always TE1.
  • Gerald Everett (1.2X) – See the rest of the Chargers – excellent match-up against the Titans.
  • Chig Okonko (1.7X) – We played him last week and he got more targets, a touchdown, and 2-point conversion. His price didn’t change and he’s too talented for this price.
  • Other TE to consider:
  • Dalton Schultz (1.2X)
  • Pat Friermuth (1.2X)
  • Cole Kmet (1.3X)
  • Greg Dulchich (1.35X)
  • Evan Engram (1.4X)
  • Hunter Henry (1.5X)
  • Tyler Conklin (1.55X)
  • Trey McBride (1.65X)

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.
