When you are setting your DFS lineups for this card you are forced to make a decision on whether to splurge on the champion or if you are going to roll with the cheaper underdog. I would go with Blachowicz and I think that his performance will be worth the price. He is coming off of a title defense and is known for his striking ability. Teixeira is known more for his submission ability, but Blachowicz is good enough on the ground that he can hold his own. I think his striking advantage gives him the edge between the two and that will show in his DFS performance.
