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 $12 tournament from Week 3. The average multiplier between the 8 positions was 1.3X in Week 3. 

TOP PLAYS FOR WEEK 4:

QUARTERBACKS 

  • Josh Allen, 1X – One of fantasy’s top-scoring quarterbacks in the highest total game on the slate. I want plenty of exposure to this game. 
  • Lamar Jackson, 1X –Same as Allen above, these two fantasy studs could be in for a shootout. 
  • Russell Wilson, 1.25X – Everyone is disgusted with Wilson’s play so far and the Denver offense. We are working with a small sample size here, so I’m willing to take shots at very low ownership to see if Russ can start cooking against the Raiders.
  • Others – Jalen Hurts – 1.1X, Derek Carr – 1.25X, Jared Goff – 1.3X, Carson Wentz – 1.35X
  • Value QB with a high multiplier – Marcus Mariota – 1.5X, Geno Smith – 1.6X, Mitch Trubisky – 1.65X

 

RUNNING BACKS 

  • Jonathan Taylor, 1X – It has been an average start to the season, but Taylor is still getting elite usage, including 5 targets last week too.
  • Saquon Barkley, 1.1X – The Giants’ offense runs through Barkley and he looks explosive. Great match-up against the Bears.
  • Nick Chubb, 1.1X – Chubb has 20+ touches in every game so far and elite matchup against the Falcons.
  • Value RBs in starting roles with an excellent multiplier:
    • Dameon Pierce – 1.4X
    • Jamaal Williams – 1.45X
    • Rashaad Penny – 1.5X
    • Khalil Herbert – 1.9X

 

WIDE RECEIVERS

  • Davante Adams, 1X – Outside of week 1, it’s been a slow start for Adams too. Even though the Broncos’ defense is good, I think Adams is matchup-proof. He should be low-owned as well. 
  • Stefon Diggs, 1X and/or Gabe Davis, 1.35X – I want plenty of exposure to the Bills receivers in this high total game. The Ravens’ secondary is also banged up and great to target. 
  • CeeDee Lamb, 1.15X – Lamb has a 33.7% target share and a 42.1% air yards share. He’s Cooper Rush’s go-to receiver and has an excellent matchup against the Commanders. 
  • Courtland Sutton, 1.3X – Sutton is getting 27.7% of the Broncos’ target share. He hasn’t scored a TD yet this season. If he gets a TD along with his volume, he could have a massive ceiling.
  • DJ Chark (Questionable) – 1.6X and Josh Reynolds – 1.9X – With Amon-Ra St. Brown out, these two Lions’ wideouts will be the top two receivers for Goff. Be sure to check on Chark’s status Sunday. 
  • Jahan Dotson, 1.7X and/or Romeo Doubs, 1.75X – Both Dotson and Doubs are proving to be valuable assets early for their respective teams. Great price still!
  • Other Rookie WR – Drake London – 1.35X, Garrett Wilson – 1.45X, George Pickens – 1.75X – In addition to Dotson and Doubs being mispriced for their role, so are these three rookie receivers that are all getting a lot of targets and/or air yards.
  • Other Value WR in starting role with an excellent multiplier – Richie James – 1.85X, Mack Hollins – 2X
  • Others: AJ Brown – 1.1X, Amari Cooper – 1.15X, Michael Pittman – 1.2X, Diontae Johnson – 1.2X, Tyler Lockett – 1.35X, Terry McLaurin – 1.25X

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

TIGHT ENDS 

  • Mark Andrews, 1X – Andrews has dominated the Ravens’ target share. Love this spot in a potential shootout. 
  • Kyle Pitts, 1.25X – Pitts had 5 catches for 87 yards last week. We are getting closer to a Kyle Pitts TD game which would give him a great ceiling.
  • TJ Hockenson, 1.45X – With Amon-Ra St. Brown out, Hockenson will need to be more involved in the receiving game. 
  • Others – Darren Waller – 1.15X, Dallas Goedert – 1.35X, Zach Ertz – 1.4X, Pat Friermuth – 1.4X, Dawson Knox – 1.45X
  • Others Value TE with an excellent multiplier – David Njoku – 1.55X, Robert Tonyan – 1.6X, Logan Thomas – 1.6X

 

FLEX 

  • This week the Bills vs. Ravens is the highest total game on the slate. I want exposure to this game, but I do like some multipliers and spots elsewhere too. Try to target a player in a high total game that I want 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.
