Shevchenko carries the biggest price tag for your DFS lineup. She is coming off back-to-back knockout wins and has ended four of her last six bouts early. Shevchenko has a death grip on the women’s flyweight belt and has successfully defended her title six times so far. She has shown that she is one of the best fighters in the Octagon and can certainly be the foundation for your DFS lineup.

Santos is going to give it her best shot. She is on the other end of the spectrum and is the cheapest option for the DFS slate. She has some upside in that she is going to have to have high strike totals to stay in this fight. Santos is coming in on a four-match win streak. If you are in a pinch with a low salary cap, she could be worth the risk.
