It looked like it was going to be a rather slow news day for the NFL. Once you hit the 7. So I have no problem dropping all the way down to Kajan Johnson at 6. The other good part about Johnson, even though he could get smashed, is that his fight is to go the distance.

And for the cheaper than usual price tag, I think he makes for a strong play. The Main Event is always a strong target for tournaments and cash games, and the favorite this week is Mark Hunt at 8.

Hunt is always a boom or bust option, which is fine for tournaments. Hunt is to win and to win ITD , so his metrics line up well. There are many good tournament plays on this slate but Hunt is definitely one of them and I would make sure to get some exposure here, even when making five lineups or less. I mentioned it with Kajan Johnson but this fight Khabilov vs.

Johnson is to end in a decision. And Khabilov holds a massive 9. With so many good options, he absolutely needs or more points to even sniff the optimal lineup, and based on his slow pace, that has to come with a finish.
