It’s Week Eight in the NFL and time to look at a few early line up suggestions and player values for this weeks Draft Kings Fantasy football players and salaries.
You should always use these Basic Draftkings Weekly Football Tips and Strategies every week to enhance your DraftKings line up scoring potential.
Key Week 8 NFL Lines to consider when looking for your weekly player options:
The all of the early NFL lines have not been finalized as I write this, here is what available to use: TB at ATL -7 (48), NYG at NO -3.5 (49.5)
Here’s a couple of thoughts from this past weekends games played and where I’m looking in Week 8.
Arian Foster HOU RB ruptured his Achilles, he is out for the year. Alfred Blue is slated to be the starting RB from this point on, he hasn’t really impressed anyone this year, but his $3500 price is very tempting.
Ben Roethlisberger PIT QB is expected to play Sunday, you can start A Brown WR, M Bryant WR and L Bell RB with confidence this week.
Philip Rivers SD QB $6600 and K Allen SD WR $7700 should be successful going against a bad Ravens secondary ranked at the bottom of the NFL.
Miami plays at NE on Thursday Night, look for Thursday start contests on DraftKings to get T Brady, R Gronkowski, J Edelman into your week 8 lineups.
Julio Jones ATL WR $9200 and D Freeman ATL RB $8000 should have big weeks against Tampa Bay.
The Indianapolis Colts really are bad, the only start-able players are D Moncrief WR $5500 and TY Hilton WR $6900.
Todd Gurley STL RB $6300 going against a very bad 49er’s team in week 8. He is a must start this week on all formats.
The STL DST $3200 is also a must play against the 49er’s in Week 8.
S Diggs MIN WR $4800 is going against a bad Bear defense this week, look for him to continue to be T Bridgewaters #1 receiving target.
Alshon Jeffery CHI WR $6400 had a nice return to the line up in week 6, look for J Cutler CHI QB $5200 to find him quite often this Sunday.
