The goal of this weekly DFS tournament picks article is to identify at least one player each week who is in the winning DraftKings Milly Maker lineup at less than 15% ownershipLast week, we connected on Chase Edmonds with the goal of differentiating our Cardinals and Seahawks game stacks and building for a pass-heavy shootout. It worked to perfection — I hope you cashed in on those Kyler Murray/Chase Edmonds/Tyler Lockett lineups.

James Conner racked up 111 total yards and looked primed for a monster game, but he had a touchdown overturned and then had another score vultured by Benny Snell. Even more frustrating was the fact that we talked about pairing Conner with A.J. Brown. But alas, that is GPP life in a nutshell.

Back to the lab we go for the Week 8 DFS tournament picks.

The 49ers/Seahawks game has the highest total in Week 8, at 54 points, and is slated to be a valuable source of fantasy goodness. Seattle’s explosive offense is dictating the pace of every game the team plays, producing point totals of 63, 65, 69, 54, 53, 71.
