NFL Week 8 Draftkings Advice

Quietbow’s Calls –  NFL WEEK 8 DRAFTKINGS – 

What up everyone, Onto week 8! Let’s win some $$!

(Do want to note this article is posted mid-week. Injuries/inactive could change things. Focusing on DraftKing’s main “Sunday slate” games. So you won’t see TNF, SNF, MNF, plays) 

Week – 7 – Recap: “have Aaron Rodgers week? ” pretty much everything you thought would happen the complete opposite happened. Need to keep that in mind going forward. 

QUARTERBACK

Overview:  

My top 3:

J.Allen- ($6.5k) Anyone playing against the Eagles secondary I’m in. Plus rushing upside. Pair Allen with J.Brown. 

D.Watson-  ($7.1k) Oakland should be able.to hang, keeping a positive game flow. Plus Oaklands secondary ranks low. Stack with Nuk/Stills or Keke. 

K.Murray- ($6.2k) Both Saints CBs are out and there run D is good. Murray is in play for that reason. Stack with Fitz/Byrd. 

Secondary plays:  

J.Brissett– ($5.6k) Solid play every week. Denver wont be able to move the ball. Creating a lot of opportunity for the Brisket. Stack w/ TY or Z.Pascal and Ebron. 

M.Stafford – ($6.1k) Home matchup vs the G-men. Plus K.Johnson is on IR. I feel like they will rely on Staffords arm. Stack w/ Golladay. 

Low Owned Stacks with upside: (high risk)

M.Trubisky – ($4.9k) Feels like a smash spot for him. Couldn’t ask for a better bounce back spot than LAC 

R.Tannehill ($5.1k) Back to Tanny. He did well for me last week,.so here we are again with a better matchup.vs TB. Stack with Davis/Brown. 

————————————————————–

RUNNING BACK

Overview: A lot of great matchups across the board 

Top Tier: 

Saquon: ($8.9k) – One of the best backs in football. Detroit ranks bottom 25 against the run and the Giants are 8th in running offence. 

CMC: ($9.2k) Anytime he’s on the slate we are gonna play him. Doesn’t matter the matchup.  

Honorable mention based on matchup: Gurley, Fournette, Carson. 

Mid tier:

M.Mack : ($6.1k) Denver has given up, there Oline will smash Denver’s front. 20+ game for Mack. 

A.Ekler: ($5.9k) Just keep feeding Ekler, great gameflow spot whether his is winning or losing. Love this spot for him. 

J.Jacobs: ($5.8k) Better matchup this week than last. Heavy usage regardless of gameflow. Watch injury status 

L.Murray: ($5.8k) Anyone vs ARI, Saints have. a great O line also. Just check on Kamaras status. If Kamara is in you can pivot up to Henry. 

S.Michel: ($5.2k) Love this matchup and gameflow plus the volume. Great pair with Pat’s D. 

N.Chubb: ($6.6k) Crazy play, but he will be less than 2% owned. Has the worst matchup but he will see volume regardless.  I credit Kyke for this one. 

Low Tier:

Some lower-priced guys that will see some volume:

J.White: ($5.1k) Due for some TD regression. Involved heavily in the pass game. NE owes him a TD

Ty Johnson.: ($4.9k) – Starting against the Giants in a run first offence. 

T.Cohin: ($4.9k) Gut call he has a big game, great stack with Tribisky.

WIDE RECEIVER   

Overview: There are alot of value guys in play this week. 

High Tier:

M.Thomas: ($8k) Only if Brees draws the start, Thomas then becomes big time in play. 

D. Hopkins:($8.1k) Going against OAK he should see a massive target game with Fuller out. If you can afford him, lock him in. 

C.Kupp: ($7.5k) Couldn’t ask for a better matchup for Cupp than CIN. Pair with Goeff. 

Mid Tier:

C.Godwin: ($7.1k) Always in play every week. The true #1 receiver on TB. 

J.Edelman: ($6.9k) Volume monster,  safe play but gameflow could lean towards a more run game. 

K.Golladay: ($6.4k) Back to the well with Golladay after burning us last week. Stack with Stafford. 

Ty. Hilton: ($6.1k) #1 target on IND, denver has given up, love the stack with Brisset. 

Larry Fitzgerald: ($5.4k) Saints CB are non existent this week. Fitz will eat. All Arizona’s WR’s are in play. 

J.Brown:($5.9k) Here we go, its Smoky week. Best matchup on the board. Lock in a TD. Pair with Allen. 

C.Sutton: ($5.3k) Sanders is out,  who else are they gonna throw to. Could be looking at a monster target game. 

Low Tier: (im just gonna list my favorite’s)

C.Kirk 

E.Sanders

Z.Pascal

C.Beasly

K.Coutee

K.Stills

A.J. Brown

C.Davis

M.Sanu

M.Williams

T.Gabriel

A.Miller

D.Bryd

(No particular order, there all seeing volume and will help you fit the studs. Take a shot on cheap WR’s this week. Stack them with the appropriate QB.)

TIGHT END

Overview: Not a ton to like, Waller stands out as the best. 

D.Waller:($5.9k)NClear beat play but is getting pricey. 

G.Kittle:($6.5k) Will go very low owned this week. Great GPP play. 

Z.Ertz:($5.1k) Crazy underpriced for the talent and targets you get. 

H.Henry:($4.9k) Tough matchup but if Allen is out could pay off. 

E.Ebron: ($3.4k) Brissett starting to look his way alot, love the play and price. 

Low Tier: 

D.Knox: ($2.9k) decent volume for the price. Pair with Allen. 

T.J. Hokenson: ($3.5k) risky play but a great stack with Stafford this week. Will be really low owned. 

———————-

DST 

Top Tier: 

Patriots: ($4.3k) Don’t overthink this. If a 4.3k we, rb, te was gonna be getting 20-30 points you would play them in a heartbeat. Lock in NE! 

Rams: ($3.8k) If you can’t afford NE. 

49ers: ($3.7k) also if you cant afford NE.

About me:

On Draftking I go by quietbow. I consider myself a semi-pro DFS player especially when it comes to NFL. I have been playing DFS for 4+ years and an FFWC qualifier. I’ve won a handful of GPP’s over the years and feel I bring my best advice to single entry/3-max players. My slate breakdown will be geared towards GPP’s and my playstyle which ranged from 3-6 LU’s every week in the main slate.
