UFC 208 DraftKings MMA Daily Fantasy Projections

DraftKings fantasy MMA projections for each fighter competing at UFC 208.

Projecting DraftKings MMA fantasy points isn’t easy.

I have been working on a method to produce accurate daily fantasy MMA projections for a couple of months now and I feel like I’m getting pretty close to a final product.

For UFC Fight Night 104 my projections hit on 29% of the fights and I’m hoping I can continue to increase that number as the 2017 season progresses. I’m also exploring a valuation model to identify true value for MMA because the typical model isn’t a great fit for combat sports.

Using the valuation formula from other sports for MMA produces a very wide range of valuations for each fighter and in my opinion, is difficult to decipher.

More to come on that so stay tuned.

The following DFS MMA chart shows the projected fantasy points for each fighter fighting at UFC 208, win and loss.
