DraftKings Picks Week 8: NFL DFS lineup advice for GPP tournaments

Kyler Murray and Saquon Barkley underwhelmed in the Meadowlands downpour last week, but they actually see more favorable spots this week considering conditions and DraftKings pricing. So, yes, we’ll run them back in separate games with our Week 8 NFL DFS picks, and our stack will center around Kyler for this GPP thought exercise.

Week 8 DFS Lineups: 
Y! Cash | Y! GPP | FD Cash | FD GPP | DK Cash

Since this lineup is initially built for a Tuesday article, I’ll also parse early-week injury reports to see where we can land RB value, and which situations are I’m avoiding for now. Let’s mine for upside with $ 50K in DK cap.

  • Murray disappointed last week under rain showersand heavily positive game script. The $ 500 price decrease and more favorable dome conditions— even facing a good defense in a general sense — puts Murray in a rebound spot.

  • Barkley proved he was healthy last week, and he should eat against the Lions porous run defense.

  • The Cardinals won’t troll me this week, successfully anyways. We can surmise that David Johnson is very unlikely to go for Week 8 and this should funnel another DJ-esqued workload to Edmonds this week, even if he doesn’t surpass30 touches like this pastSunday. He’s still in position to hit 5X value.

  • This lineup’s build allows for running Kyler Murray or Teddy Bridgewater, though I’ll pay the extra $ 300 for Murray’s rushing upside while counting on target concentration with Michael Thomas. No player on the slate has more receiving yards on the season or over the past two weeks

  • Hopefully the Jets’ Monday night implosion keeps Anderson low owned in GPPs at sub-$ 5K, as he did confirm that the upside’s still there just a week prior. So, I’m putting that Pats game out of my brainand remembering that Sam Darnold’s Week 6 return sawAnderson rankthird among WRs in receiving yards.

  • I fortunately dodged Larry Fitzgerald last week but have been awaiting Kirk’s return, as he remains key to a viable Murraystack. The two receivers sawa near-identical target share through the first three weeks, and we’ll assume Kirk (ankle) returns from injury to stack at $ 700 cheaper than Fitz.

  • Everett leads all tight ends in both targets and air yards over the past four weeks, so I’m not overthinking this at barely over $ 4K. I’ll eat the chalk here.

  • Teddy’s actually going downfield! Ginn ranks 12th among receivers in air yards over the past two weeks, and hopefully the masses will fade Bridgewater’s deep passing enough to keep Ginn’s basement price from going chalk.

  • No quarterback has taken more sacks over the past two weeks than Joe Flacco. Fire up the home Colts as TD favorites.
