DraftKings DFS Values

Figueiredo: $7,700

No knock to Figueiredo, but even with the inflated cost, Moreno will be the more valuable fighter here. Between the strong and confident strikes and the ability to move the fight to the ground and pop a submission out of nowhere, Moreno has been fighting really well recently. Plus, Moreno has the submission win over Figueiredo in their last matchup back in June 2021.

Don’t get me wrong, Figueiredo still would have value for your lineup as he is also a solid all-around fighter, the edge just goes to the champ.
