Tomorrow night’s UFC 260 pay-per-view offering has taken quite a hit due to COVID-19, but there are still plenty of good options to stack your winning UFC 260 DraftKings lineup with. Hopefully I’ve got all the correct answers for you right here, including one half of the UFC Heavyweight Championship main event.

UFC 260 DraftKings Roster

Miranda Maverick – $8,800

We’ll start things off by adding the top FPPF performer on the card, Miranda ‘Fear the’ Maverick, to our UFC 260 DraftKings roster. Ok, fine, she’s only fought once in the UFC, but she did rack up 110 fantasy points in her win against Liana Jojua. I think she can pull off the same this weekend against Gillian Robertson. While Robertson is a feared grappler, I don’t think she’ll be physically strong enough to implement her jiu jitsu strengths on Maverick, who truly should be feared in the cage.

Khama Worthy – $8,600

Another great nickname added to our UFC 260 DraftKings lineup in ‘The Deathstar’ Khama Worthy. He’s also worthy (ha) of some big fantasy point outings, putting up 108 and 81, respectively, in his first two UFC outings (before posting a goose egg his last time in the cage – ouch). I’m expecting a bounce back performance from Worthy this weekend against Jamie Mullarkey, who is 0-2 in the UFC.

Francis Ngannou – $8,400

I’m predicting a new UFC Heavyweight Champion coming out of Saturday night, and that would be Francis Ngannou. Not only do I expect him to beat Stipe Miocic, but I expect him to knock him out, probably fairly early on in the fight. ‘The Predator’ has topped the 100 fantasy point mark in four straight fights – let’s hope he makes it five.

Marc-Andre Barriault – $8,200

I passed on one fellow Canadian, Gillian Robertson, for my UFC 260 DraftKings lineup, but I’ll take the Quebecer Marc-Andre Barriault in his curtain jerking fight against Abu Azaitar. Both men are coming off drug suspensions, but Azaitar has been out almost three years now at this point. And ‘Power Bar’ finally got his first UFC win last fight, via knockout no less, before it got overturned due to the aforementioned drug test failure.

Alonzo Menifield – $8,100

Alonzo Menifield at only $8,100 is a steal in my eyes. He’ll be facing a UFC debutant in Fabio Cherant, who was only slotted into this fight this past Wednesday. ‘Atomic’ has put up a couple of duds in his last two UFC fights, losing both and not scoring many points. However, before that he had fantasy point performances of 114 and 96 points in his first two UFC fights. I’m counting on a performance more along those lines on Saturday.

Modestas Bukauskas – $7,700

‘The Baltic Gladiator’ is a promising light heavyweight prospect, so I’ll gladly grab him for my UFC 260 DraftKings lineup for only $7,700. Sure, he only scored three points his last fight, but that was against the very formidable Jimmy Crute. His debut UFC fight before that he put up 97, and I think he has the goods to best Michal Oleksiejczuk this weekend.
