DraftKings DFS Values

Michael Chiesa: $7,700
Vicente Luque: $8,500

The value here is on Luque, who has faced a better quality of opponent than Chisea of late. His first-round stoppage of Tyron Woodley was a big one, and he’s in form as one of the best fighters in the world. We’ll take the Brazilian in a bout that likely won’t need the judges.
