Week 8 DFS Plays of the Week



DraftHustle’s Top DFS Plays of the week for Fanduel and Draftkings


QB

Jalen Hurts – PHI vs Commanders

Fanduel - $9,200; Draftkings - $8,200



Jalen Hurts has the best matchup of the QBs on the week 8 main slate. He faces the Commanders who have given up the most fantasy points to QBs this year. In week 4, Jalen put up 319 pass yards and 2 pass TDs against the Commanders, and week 8 should be more of the same. The Commanders also give up the 2nd most rushing yards, just adding more safety to Jalen’s already high floor.

RB

Breece Hall – NYJ vs Giants

Fanduel - $7,200; Draftkings - $5,900




Breece Hall pops up as the highest value in terms of Dollars per point on both DraftKings and FanDuel in week 8. He has averaged 22.3 and 25.8 PPG on FD and DK respectively in his last 2 games after his workload returned to normal. He is well rested after the Jets bye and faces a New York Giants defense that ranks 30th in rush YPG, yards per carry, and TD% allowed to RBS this season. Breece is a great play in any format this week.


WR

Zay Flowers – BAL vs Cardinals

FanDuel - $6,600; DraftKings - $5,600



Rookie Zay Flowers has been the most consistent of the Ravens WRs this season. He has averaged over 8 targets and 66 receiving yards a game over the last 3 weeks, and he is easily Lamar’s go to WR. Zay faces a porous Arizona Cardinals secondary in week 8 who give up the 3rd most receiving yards per game and the 3rd most yards per target to WRs this season. Zay Flowers only has a 1 TD this season, but I expect Zay to get at least one in week 8.



TE

Travis Kelce – KC vs Broncos

Fanduel - $9,000; Draftkings - $8,400



We are back on the Travis Kelce train this week, and for good reason. He has averaged 10.5 receptions and 156.5 receiving yards over his last 2 games. This week Travis faces a historically bad Broncos’ defense that’s gives up the most yards per target, 2nd most receiving yards per game, and 3rd most fantasy PPG to TEs. To top it off, Kelce just had 9 catches for 124 yards against this same team 2 weeks ago. Treat Kelce as a WR1 on this slate.


D/ST

Atlanta Falcons – vs Titans

Fanduel - $3,900; Draftkings - $2,900



The Atlanta Falcons have the best DH +/- ranking this week on both FanDuel and DraftKings, and they are the D/ST of choice on both sites. They get to face the Tennessee Titans in week 8 who will be playing a combination of Will Levis and Malik Willis at QB. The Titans have the 2nd lowest Vegas implied team Total (16.5 points) on this slate. Meaning Vegas doesn’t think they will do much scoring, and neither do I.
