NFL DFS Main Slate Value Advice – Week 8

Teddy Bridgewater

We hit big on value last week, Dante Pettis of the Giants practice squad caught a touchdown and completed a pass to quarterback Daniel Jones giving him 13.5 DK FPTS. for over 4X value. We need value for all of our lineups to cash in, any one can tell you to stack Matt Stafford with Cooper Kupp against the Texans this week, but to make that work we need to find a couple of guys to go off who are much cheaper. With only the Ravens and Raiders on a bye week, there’s enough value to go around this week in every spot. 

Value at Quarterback:

Teddy Bridgewater ($5,400 DK/$7,000 FD) is home with a favorable matchup against Washington, who has allowed quarterbacks to feast this season, dead last in the league, of 27 per game. Start up “Teddy Two Gloves” if you are looking to pay down this week at QB. 

Want To See More? Here’s What You Get If You Sign Up For $99

  • Even more value picks at RB that can save you big.
  • Somebody from The Jets that you actually might draft?
  • A $2,800 TE to make your budget.
  • All access to up to six months for all sports for $99

Value at Running Back:

David Johnson ($4,200 DK/$5,100 FD) Will see an uptick in usage after the Texans traded Mark Ingram III to the Saints. Although he is still in a timeshare with Phillip LindsayJohnson will benefit because of his pass catching ability out of the backfield. He’s caught 19 of 24 targets, averaging three per game. Take advantage of his low price tag this week.

Value at Wide Receiver:

Jamison Crowder ($4,800 DK/$5,600 FD) Could be in line for a lead role in the receiving core for the Jets, who most likely will be without Corey Davis. He will also have a nice matchup, as the Bengals give up the most fantasy points in the league to wide receivers.

Adam Humphries ($3,400 DK/$5,100 FD) Washington will be down two more receivers this weekend again (Curtis Samuel, Dyami Brown)Terry McLaurin will see most of the attention from the Denver defense, leaving Humphries to see a lot more looks from Taylor Heinicke.

Value at Tight End:

Dan Arnold ($2,800 DK/$4,900 FD) Has seen 13 targets from Trevor Lawrence in only two games for the Jaguars. The tight end position continues to be a target funnel for Lawrence and the Jacksonville offense, and a nice spot to buy low in DFS.

Adam Trautman ($2,700 DK/$4,500 FD) The way to beat Tampa is to put pressure on Brady on the defensive end, and pepper the tight end with passes. The Bucs have surrendered four touchdowns to four tight ends over the past five games. A Jameis Winston revenge game will have him throwing it all day against his former team, and one may land in the end zone to Trautman.
