NFL DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Picks

Slate Summary

  • Week 8! We are a couple weeks away from finishing the first half of the season. Today, we have a lot of great value plays on both sites.
  • Ezekiel Elliott is currently listed doubtful which would make it a Tony Pollard day. He is in a very good game script against the Chicago Bears and for his price tag, this play is a lock for me on both sites.
  • DJ Moore looked terrible through the first 6 weeks but he finally looked like himself last week putting up 7 receptions on 69 yards with a touchdown. PJ Walker will be his QB again in an easier matchup against the Falcons. Pay 6.2k/5.3k and look to see some PJ to DJ magic today.
  • We get value from Pollard and Moore allowing us to spend up to Tyreek Hill who has the best matchup you can ask for as an offensive player. He is up against a terrible Lions defense who gives up a ton of yards in the air due to playing mostly man coverage. He has a safe floor but also a massive upside ceiling.
  • Chris Olave is another great play but I prefer him more on DK. Dalton and Olave seem to keep growing their chemistry and with all the targets Olave has racked up, he is a viable cash game and even GPP play. The matchup is also good against the Raiders so I’m all for a 6k Olave.
  • My last core play is also geared towards DK who is listed as min price. Sam Ehlinger was announced to be the starter moving forward as the Colts benched their veteran QB, Matt Ryan. The Colts are playing at home against the Commanders, a situation that couldn’t get any better for Ehlinger. I’m okay with playing Ehlinger while playing the Washington Commanders defense in cash games but I highly recommend fading it in GPPs.
