Draft Kings Week 8 Analysis

Between games on Thursday, Sunday morning, Sunday night and Monday night, and with six teams on byes, we have a very narrow set of games to focus on for the DraftKings main slate. Carson Wentz will be the chalk QB without a doubt, coming off three straight strong games and playing against the Niners. Zeke, even at $9,200, will be heavily owned with no Bell on the main slate. There are some very viable (but higher risk) low-cost running backs to roster which will allow you to pay up where you choose. It has been a very difficult year to find consistency at the wide receiver slot. So this week, we are going to pay up for two solid RBs and go down the list a little for two receivers who have been scoring touchdowns and another who has a history of big plays.

QB Tom Brady NE 7600 Very high floor at a big price
QB Dak Prescott DAL 7300 At least 22.92 in four straight
QB Carson Wentz PHI 7200 11 TDs in past three games and now faces worst defense
QB Russell Wilson SEA 6500 At least 29 points in three games but others are dogs
QB Philip Rivers LAC 6300 Patriots defense narrative
QB Andy Dalton CIN 5700 Great low price in excellent spot
RB Ezekiel Elliott DAL 9200 Beast while the court says he can play
RB LeSean McCoy BUF 8700 As long as Tolbert doesn’t vulture TDs
