A note from Pete on how to use his MMA DFS cheatsheet:
“Hi everyone! For each UFC DFS card, I enjoy putting together a statistical spreadsheet to help my decision making. I do believe this spreadsheet can be a great tool for you, if used correctly (Just remember it’s a fight and ANYTHING can happen). First, I would recommend comparing height and reach. This is critical if the fight remains standing. Next, I would start looking at the color coded values:
Red = Bad
Orange = Below Average
Yellow = Average
Green = Good
Dark Green = Great
Viewing offensive output such as sig strikes and takedowns are important categories, but I really like comparing defensive statistics. These categories are crucial. For example, in heavier-weighted contests (where the finish is more likely), you don’t want to roster the guy absorbing 10 strikes per minute! Next, I would look at momentum (win streaks, losses, etc.) and also see what Vegas is thinking. I like to view odds last, so that it doesn’t effect my judgment while breaking down the fight. Most importantly, watch some film! Combine film study with an analytical approach and you have a recipe for success. Good luck this weekend and hit me up on Twitter for anything.” – @PeteTheHeatMMA
