Welcome to the MMA DFS Opto% Tool!

We can now use our MMA DFS projections to simulate the outcome of MMA DFS events. Below, you will find a tool that estimates how often a player might appear in the winning lineup. Side by side, you can find an early estimate of DFS ownership% for comparison purposes. The goal is to provide a simple metric to aid in your decision-making.

Note: You can always find the most up-to-date MMA DFS projections in LineupHQ.

MMA DFS Opto% Tool – How It Works

— We use our MMA projections to run trials of a simulated “slate” by selecting the winner of each match and the method of victory based on our data.

— From there, each player receives FPTS based on a range of outcomes specific to their result.
