NFL DFS, Week 8: Top FanDuel, DraftKings daily Fantasy football picks, stacks, lineup advice

Derrick Henry added another tool to his arsenal in Week 7 when the NFL's leading rusher threw his first career touchdown pass. That made up for Henry not finding the end zone on his own, and even though he didn't hit pay dirt, Henry will still be highly coveted for NFL DFS lineups in Week 8 on sites like FanDuel and DraftKings. The same can be said for the running back who will be squaring off against the Titans in Jonathan Taylor. The second-year back only trails Henry in terms of rushing yards, so Titans vs. Colts is booming with premier NFL DFS picks at the running back position.

And with other players such as Carson Wentz and A.J. Brown, that game has a multitude of options to choose from when formulating your NFL DFS strategy. That game is one of 13 on the Sunday afternoon slate in Week 8, and many of them are also loaded with picks who could make or break your daily Fantasy football lineups. Before locking in your NFL DFS picks for Week 8, be sure to check out the NFL DFS advice, strategy and projections from SportsLine daily Fantasy expert Mike McClure.

McClure is a legendary professional DFS player with almost $2 million in career winnings. His methodology has led to enormous cashes on FanDuel and DraftKings. He took down two high-stakes tournaments on FanDuel in 2020 and recorded a pair top-10 finishes in tournaments with over 130,000 entrants on DraftKings. His lineups also finished inside the top 1 percent in more than a dozen other tournaments last season.

He uses a powerful prediction model that simulates every snap of NFL action, taking factors such as matchups, statistical trends and injuries into account. This allows him to find the best DFS values that he shares only with members at SportsLine.

Now, McClure has turned his attention to Week 8 and locked in his top daily Fantasy football picks. You can only see them by heading to SportsLine.

Top NFL DFS picks for Week 8

One of McClure's top NFL DFS picks for Week 8 is Rams receiver Cooper Kupp at $9,000 on DraftKings and $9,200 on FanDuel. Kupp seemingly tops himself game after game, and last week he had 10 grabs for 156 yards and two touchdowns.

Matthew Stafford's arrival to Los Angeles has unlocked Kupp, who is on the way to winning the receiving triple crown. He leads the NFL in receptions (56), receiving yards (809) and receiving touchdowns (nine). His 115.6 receiving yards per game puts him on pace for 1,965 yards, which would break Calvin Johnson's all-time single-season mark by one yard. Facing the Texans in Week 8 should help Kupp reach that goal as Houston ranks 26th in yards allowed and also 27th in points allowed.

Part of McClure's optimal NFL DFS strategy also includes rostering 49ers receiver Deebo Samuel ($7,400 DraftKings, $7,800 FanDuel), who posted a 7-100-1 stat line last week vs. Indianapolis. Kupp is the only player with more receiving yards per game than Samuel who checks in second at 108 per contest.

Samuel has to be salivating at the thought of facing the Bears in Week 8 as Chicago was torched by the Bucs' receivers last week. Mike Evans and Chris Godwin combined for 187 yards and four touchdowns, but Samuel has a luxury that neither of them had. Only two targets separate Evans and Godwin on the season while Samuel has a staggering 27 more targets than any other Niners receiver.

McClure is also targeting an undervalued player who is set to explode for huge numbers on Sunday. This pick could be the difference between winning your tournaments and cash games or going home with nothing. You can only see who it is here.

Thursday Night Football FanDuel Picks: NFL DFS lineup advice for Week 8 Packers-Cardinals single-game tournaments

The Packers make their way to the desert for what looks like a stellar Thursday Night Football matchup with the Cardinals to kick off Week 8. Unfortunately, Green Bay will be down Davante Adams and Allen Lazard (both on the COVID), but that opens up opportunities for other sleepers and DFS value palys to step up -- and for us to benefit in our FanDuel single game lineup.

Here are the key scoring settings to know for FanDuel single-gamers: The point total for the "MVP" is multiplied by 1.5, but he doesn't cost any additional money like the "Captain" in DraftKings Showdown contests. FanDuel's default scoring is half-point PPR and four-point passing TDs, and there are no bonuses for 100/300-yard games like on DraftKings.

FanDuel Single-Game DFS Picks: Packers vs. Cardinals

$60,000 budget, need at least one player from each team

MVP (1.5x points): QB Kyler Murray, Cardinals ($17,000)

Murray is fourth overall in FanDuel scoring, and aside from a true dud in Week 5 (13.66 FD points), he has established a 20-point floor and a ceiling in the mid-30s. The scary thing -- for opponents and those who aren’t invested in him -- is Murray hasn’t even really started to run yet. He hasn’t scored on the ground since Week 3, and he’s totaled 17 rushing yards over the past three games. The Cardinals certainly want to protect their franchise quarterback, but perhaps this is a situation where they ease up on the reins.

FLEX: QB Aaron Rodgers, Packers ($15,000)

Rodgers will not only be without Davante Adams (COVID) -- the intended target on 33.7 percent of his passes -- but Allen Lazard (COVID), as well. Lazard’s absence may seem like small potatoes, but his usage was trending upward and he had scored in two straight contests. Still, Rodgers averaged 305 passing yards and 3.5 touchdowns in 2020 when Adams missed a pair of games, and the Packers are 6-0 without their top receiver since 2019. There are still enough weapons at Rodgers' disposal for him to deliver a positive performance.

FLEX: RB Aaron Jones, Packers ($12,500)

Coming off a game in which he touched the ball just 11 times, Jones should be fresh and ready to handle a full -- or expanded -- workload. He already flirted with 40 FD points against Detroit in Week 2, so we know the type of ceiling that’s in his game. Jones leads the team in touches and will likely be leaned on more heavily this week. He received over 20 opportunities (carries plus targets) per game in six contests without Adams.

FLEX: TE Robert Tonyan, Packers ($8,000)

Tonyan is third on the team in targets, but he stands to be one of the pass-catchers who receives a larger portion of the pie in the passing game this week with so many key receivers sidelined. Tonyan is fresh off a 4-63-1 showing and has a pair of touchdowns on the season. He scored 11 times in 2020 -- including three in one game -- and he figures to be a prime target when the Packers are looking to punch it in for six.

FLEX: WR Randall Cobb, Packers ($7,000)

Cobb will have the opportunity to show why he was handpicked by Rodgers. His 18 targets rank fifth on the team, but he’ll serve as the No. 1 wide receiver on Thursday night. Cobb still has some game, demonstrated by his two touchdowns and 21.4 FD points against the Steelers in Week 4.

Best NFL DFS Stacks Week 8: Lineup picks for DraftKings, FanDuel tournaments, daily fantasy football cash games

NFL DFS players will have a few more options to choose from on the main slate in Week 8. Each of the past two weeks have featured just 10 main slate games. However, in Week 8, there will be 12 games, as there are just two teams on bye (Raiders, Ravens). That will make it easier for daily fantasy football players to find unique DraftKings and FanDuel pickups, but it doesn't mean that you should avoid stacking. It's still a great strategy in both tournaments and cash games, as it provides lineup differentiation while also raising your ceiling in any contest.

This week is a great one for stacks. It's similar to last week's slate in that there are a lot of strong teams going up against weaker ones, so that creates some advantageous matchups. Sometimes, stacking heavily favored teams can be a risk, but when it pays off, it makes it very easy to cash.

WEEK 8 DFS LINEUPS: FanDuel | DraftKings | Yahoo

The most popular stacks, as always, will involve pairing a quarterback with one or two of his best pass-catching weapons. These are typically receivers or tight ends, though the occasional pass-catching running back can work in tournament formats. That said, RBs are usually paired with defenses. After all, if your defense is playing well and you're winning, then you're also more likely to run the ball.

Traditional stacks are the safest stacking approach, but contrarian stacks are great for lineup differentiation. They tend to be more boom-or-bust, but if you like the matchup of a wide receiver and defense, it can work out. It's just a bit more of a risk.

DraftKings pricing continues to be more variable than that of FanDuel which makes it easier to create stacks. That said, stacking is still a viable strategy on FanDuel. It's just important to find worthwhile sleepers in the lower price range to balance your lineup.

Below are some of our favorite sets of teammates for DraftKings and FanDuel lineups this week. Be sure to follow our Twitter account @SN_Fantasy to see all of our DFS content heading into kickoff every week.

Week 8 NFL DFS Picks: Top cash game stacks for DraftKings, FanDuel

QB Joe Burrow, WR Ja'Marr Chase, & WR Tee Higgins, Bengals at Jets (DK/FD stack)

The Bengals offense is surprisingly proving to be one of the best in the NFL. Many knew they had talented skill positions, but there were questions on the offensive line and about the health of Joe Burrow. Those have been answered.

So far, the offensive line has blocked well enough for Cincinnati. Meanwhile, Burrow has looked fully healthy in his return from an ACL tear. That has allowed the Bengals offense to take off and explains why they rank in the upper half of the league in most major offensive stat categories.

StatPer game numbersNFL rank
Total offense369.613th
Passing yards262.712th

As long as Cincinnati's offense continues to play well, you can trust them, especially in weaker matchups. The Jets are fresh off a 54-13 loss to the Patriots, so they qualify even though they have given up the second-fewest pass TDs in the NFL (6). Burrow is the best quarterback New York has faced to date, and he has had multiple TDs in all seven of his games this year. He should get them again.

Chase has more receiving yards than any rookie through seven games in NFL history with 754. He has posted two games with 30-plus DraftKings points in his past three outings, so that will make him a worthwhile option. Higgins, meanwhile, hasn't done as much, but his five red-zone targets lead the Bengals. He has also posted double-digit DK points in four of the five games he's played. This trio has a high ceiling against the Jets, but their floor is pretty high, as well. Keep trusting the Bengals until they give you a reason not to.

Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker

QB Matthew Stafford, WR Cooper Kupp, & TE Tyler Higbee, Rams at Texans (DK/FD stack)

Another week, another great matchup for Stafford and his weapons. He has totaled 585 passing yards, seven touchdowns, and just one interception in his past two games. Now, he gets to face the Texans, who have allowed 29 points per game, good for the fifth most in the NFL.

Stafford and the Rams should have another good passing day that will include multiple TDs. Figuring out who might catch those isn't terribly difficult. Cooper Kupp leads the NFL in catches (56), receiving yards (809), and receiving TDs (9) entering Week 8. His 15 red-zone targets and eight TDs in that range lead the NFL, as well. He's a must-stack with Stafford.

You could go in several different directions with the third member of this stack, but Higbee is probably the best value. He's the ninth-most expensive tight end in DK and the 12th-most expensive in FanDuel, but he has TD upside. He has 11 red-zone targets, second only to Kupp. He is two ahead of Robert Woods, so while Woods may get more yardage, Higbee is cheaper and has slightly more TD upside. It also helps that the Texans have allowed a league-high six TDs to TEs and have allowed the fourth-most DK points and third-most FD points to TEs this season. Higbee will probably be lower owned than some of the other Rams and tight ends on this slate. Trusting him at a low-end price and guaranteeing that 59 percent of the Rams' red-zone targets are in our lineup seems like a good move.

Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker

RB Zack Moss & Bills D/ST, Bills vs. Dolphins (DK Stack)

I know Moss isn't the sexiest pick in DFS formats since he's averaging just 3.9 yards per carry, but he's a solid, low-cost, high-floor option for cash games. Moss has posted at least 12.1 DK points in four of his five games played this season. He has averaged 12.8 touches per game and has scored four times on the season. He's not very explosive, but when the Bills get into the red zone, they tend to trust him over Devin Singletary.

In fact, Moss has 17 red-zone carries on the season. That's tied for the ninth most in the NFL, and Moss has racked up those attempts in just five games. His TD upside is high, so going with him for just $5,200 on DraftKings seems like a good value.

The Bills defense is the nicer part of this stack. It has scored 17-plus DK points in three of its four games this year, and that includes a 22-point outing against the Dolphins in a 35-0 Week 2 win. That was with Jacoby Brissett at QB for most of the game, but it's worth noting that Tua Tagovailoa threw three picks and was sacked once against the Bills in Week 17 last year. He could struggle against an improved Bills defense.

Week 8 DraftKings, FanDuel Picks: Best stacks for daily fantasy football GPPs/tournaments

QB Matt Ryan, WR Calvin Ridley, & TE Kyle Pitts, Falcons vs. Panthers (DK stack)

The Panthers are in a state of disarray right now. Their defense looked solid to begin the season, but they have allowed an average of 29 points per game during their four-game losing streak. That includes games against the Eagles and Giants during which they allowed 21 and 25 points, respectively.

The Falcons are starting to play a bit better on offense, so they should be able to take advantage of this spot. Matt Ryan has recorded multiple TDs in five consecutive games, and the Falcons have averaged. 25.8 points during that span. Their passing offense should do well once again, as Carolina's secondary hasn't been as strong since Jaycee Horn went down with an injury.

Going with Ryan means we're going to go with his top two receiving weapons. Ridley has just 281 receiving yards this season, but he has averaged 10.4 targets per game this year. He's due for a big game and this could be a good spot for one. As for Pitts, he has averaged eight catches for 141 yards in his past two games. He should continue to threaten the 100-yard mark as a receiver, and he will have a shot at a touchdown against a Panthers defense that has allowed three to TEs this year. 

The Falcons aren't a great team, so some DFS players will steer clear of them, but you can certainly field a winning lineup with these three in the fold.

QB Geno Smith, RB Alex Collins, & WR DK Metcalf, Seahawks vs. Jaguars (DK/FD Stack)

There is a lot to like about the Seahawks in Week 8. They're taking on the Jaguars and will get a chance to pile up points against one of the weakest defenses in the NFL. The Jaguars are allowing a whopping 412.2 yards per game this season. That's a bottom-three mark in the NFL. They are also allowing 28.7 points per game, good for the seventh-most in the NFL this season.

The Seahawks might not be as strong of a team offensively without Russell Wilson, but they still have some worthwhile weapons they can utilize to their advantage. Notably, Metcalf should feast on a Jaguars' defense that has struggled to limit receivers in terms of catches and yardage. The Jaguars have allowed nine WRs to score at least 10 fantasy points on them, so Metcalf should be next.

Pairing Metcalf with the low-priced Geno Smith makes sense. You could also argue for adding Tyler Lockett to the mix since the Jaguars have allowed double-digit fantasy scorers at receiver in four of their six games this season. However, going with Alex Collins (or the recently activated Rashaad Penny if Collins' groin acts up again) might be the best way to get in on the Seahawks' rushing attack, which they'll surely look to establish. The Jaguars have allowed eight rushing TDs to RBs. That's tied for the second most in the NFL despite the fact that they have already had their bye week.

In short, you can play any Seahawk on Sunday. It's just a matter of which ones you prefer. Our favored approach involves trusting Smith, Collins, and Metcalf.

RB Elijah Mitchell, WR Deebo Samuel, & 49ers D/ST, 49ers at Bears (DK/FD stack)

Kyle Shanahan might be mum about the 49ers' starting quarterback ahead of Week 8, but we know enough about their offense to know who their weapons will be against the Bears. Elijah Mitchell and Deebo Samuel starred for the 49ers offense in their washout loss to the Colts. Mitchell totaled 107 rushing yards and scored an early TD. Samuel caught seven passes for 100 yards and a score. He was the lone 49ers player with more than three catches during the game..

These two have been the most consistent, dynamic threats in the San Francisco offense, and they each get a good matchup with the Bears. Chicago has allowed 762 rushing yards to running backs, good for the sixth most in the NFL. They also have allowed 12 receiving TDs to wide receivers, which is more than any other team in the NFL has allowed. These stats indicate that Mitchell and Samuel are great plays, so they're a nice contrarian stack. They are the 49ers' top two offensive weapons with George Kittle (calf) out, after all.

Why throw in the defense? Well, the Bears have averaged 13.4 points per game in starts made by Justin Fields. He has averaged an interception per game and has been sacked 20 times total during that span. Few DFS players will use all three of these options, so it could be a nice way to earn some high-impact lineup differentiation in Week 8.

Best Ball Fantasy Football Strategies for 2021

As we barrel through August it’s full speed ahead towards redraft fantasy football season, but let’s not forget about best ball just yet. If you’ve been best ball drafting all offseason, you probably don’t need me to convince you to get a few more in this month while you still can. If you’re new to best ball it’s a great way to sharpen up for your re-draft leagues with a little real money on the line.

There is, however, some nuance to best ball drafts. Before entering it’s vital to be familiar with strategies tailored for best ball and how they differ from weekly managed leagues. Some of these strategies translate to redraft better than others, especially considering there’s no waiver wire available in best ball. You also typically have a larger roster in best ball leagues. Because of these factors, best ball strategies boil down to one thing: roster construction. How you build your team matters and there are multiple routes to success. 

Most of these best ball strategies revolve around running backs, arguably the most important position in fantasy football. Of course, how you approach running backs has a domino effect on the other positions, and how you draft them needs to be adjusted accordingly. You may also notice that all of the strategies feature wide receivers as the most drafted position. Wideout is the deepest position in fantasy football and also the most prone to variance. You take advantage of both of those facts by loading up on receivers. 

It should be noted that one strategy this won’t cover in-depth is stacking, which is more of a tool that can, and should, be used with any of the following best ball draft strategies. If you want more info on the topic, make sure to check out this recent article on stacks to target in best ball.

With that as the backdrop, let’s take a look at different best ball strategies that can lead to success. 

For the strategies discussed here, I’ll be following the Underdog Fantasy best ball roster format that features 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 FLEX, and 10 bench spots (18 total).

Zero RB

The zero running back draft strategy has been floating around in redraft fantasy football circles for years now but it is well suited for best ball. With this strategy, you spend your early draft picks on anything but running backs. Fill your roster with stud wide receivers and true difference makers at quarterback and tight end before considering any running backs.

Obviously, you aren’t literally drafting zero running backs, you’re just push drafting them back to the middle and late rounds. When you’re finally ready to pull the trigger on backs, take the shotgun approach and draft a conglomerate of high-upside backs; running backs in ambiguous backfields, rookies that could take over as the season progresses, or your classic handcuff backups. You can’t scramble to add these potential league-winners off waivers in best ball but you can pre-load them on your roster.

Possible Roster Construction: QB:2 RB:7 WR:7 TE:2

Hero RB

Sometimes known as “modified zero running back’, this strategy requires one small but important change to go from zero to hero. In this approach, you spend your first draft pick on a stud running back, then forgo drafting the position for as long as possible. This strategy is largely dependent on your draft slot and works best if you get dealt a top-four pick, which allows you to start your draft with one of the true studs as the hero running back on your roster.

Rostering a back that profiles as a week-in, week-out stud allows you the freedom to roster fewer running backs overall and take a few more late-round shots at the other positions.

Possible Roster Construction: QB:2 RB:5 WR:8 TE:3

Fragile RB

A fragile running back build is the perfect example of a high-risk, high-reward strategy. When employing the fragile running back strategy you’ll get three top-tier running backs early, possibly even with your first three picks, and that’s it for the position. Since you only need to fill two running back spots in a given week, three great ones can do the trick. Of course, this is considered “fragile” because if any of your backs bust or get injured, your team is sunk.

The theory here is that if you have a high-end running back bust, you probably aren’t replacing him with the mid and late-round running backs you’ll find later in the draft anyway. Meanwhile, the wide receivers in this range are more prone to variance and giving you the random spike performances that can win you a week. This build also allows you to add more depth at quarterback and tight end.

Possible Roster Construction: QB:3 RB:3 WR:9 TE:3

Robust RB/Zero WR

As the name implies, this strategy is essentially the opposite of zero running back. After all, running back is the highest scoring non-quarterback position in fantasy football. Drafting running backs early and often assures that you’ll never get burned at the position. It does prevent you from adding stud wide receivers to your roster, but receivers are the deepest position in fantasy football. Since they’re also high-variance, adding more of them in the late rounds increases your chances of hitting on week-winning performances throughout the season. 

Possible Roster Construction: QB:2 RB:6 WR:8 TE:2

How to Approach Quarterbacks and Tight Ends

You may have noticed that each possible roster construction included either two or three at each of these positions. That wasn’t arbitrary. While you don’t necessarily want to build a strategy around these “onesie” positions, you need to fit them into you’re chosen method accordingly. Let’s take a look at why and when to go with two or three quarterbacks and tight ends in best ball drafts.


Quarterback is the highest scoring position in fantasy football, but it’s also the most replaceable. This is why the “Late Round Quarterback” strategy has been historically so successful in traditional redraft leagues. The success behind this strategy, however, is contingent on the ability to find bye week replacements off waivers and stream the position when necessary. This isn’t an option in best ball, so you need to draft your backups and streamers upfront.

Two QB Build

If you secure a top-flight quarterback you should only be adding one more to your roster. Spending legit draft capital at the position means you believe in the player and he should provide the QB points to your lineups most weeks. Ideally, you’ll only get a few weeks’ worth of points from your second quarterback. In two-quarterback builds your first quarterback needs to be a stud but your second should be reliable. Stacking pass-catchers with your second quarterback should be prioritized to increase his overall ceiling.

Three QB Build

If you’re a fan of the “Late Round Quarterback” strategy in managed leagues, three-quarterback builds are for you. With these builds, you wait on quarterbacks until the later rounds and draft three “streamers” to play off your roster. With this build you still want to have one safe, stabilizing starter, but the others can be riskier upside players that will pay off if they put up a few big weeks or, better yet, have a breakout season. This is a great strategy to use if you want to target rookie quarterbacks that might not takeover until later in the season like Trey Lance or Justin Fields.

Tight End

Unlike quarterbacks, there is a massive dropoff after the top tier of tight ends. They can, however, still be approached similarly. Just like quarterbacks, you need at least two but don’t want any more than three. The path you take to acquire them, however, is slightly different than quarterbacks.

Two TE Build

In recent years a top-scoring fantasy tight end has given you a massive advantage and it doesn’t project to look any different this season. A top-three tight end, Travis Kelce, Darren Waller, or George Kittle, is likely going to cost you a first or second-round draft pick. There’s nothing wrong with chasing the positional advantage at that cost, but realize that if everything goes as planned you won’t have another tight end cracking your best ball lineup most weeks. 

Since the dropoff after the elite tier is so massive, there’s no need to reach for a questionable upside tight end in the middle rounds and there’s certainly no need to add two depth tight ends. The best play is to pair your elite tight end with a late-round flyer, maybe stack him with one of your quarterbacks, and hope he gives you a few usable weeks throughout the season.

Three TE Build

Conversely, if you’re drafting anything other than an elite tight end, you should be drafting three. Where you grab them in the draft isn’t as important, though it’s not a bad idea to grab a high-upside breakout candidate or two in the middle rounds and finish it up with a dart throw near the end of the draft. Much like drafting three quarterbacks, selecting three tight ends in your best ball draft essentially allows you to stream the position from your bench. Again, these middle and late-round tight ends can present the perfect opportunity to stack with quarterbacks, ultimately increasing your roster’s upside.
