Our Week 8 DraftKings DFS cash guide helps you build an optimal lineup by giving you the best player picks and sleepers based on matchup and expected workload.
Below are some of the players I’m considering for my cash lineups in Week 8. Some things may change between now and Sunday (injury news later in the week is one of the most important things to pay attention to for DFS), but this should give you a good starting point when building cash lineups for Week 8.
The “Top Value” charts above show the top values based on projections and salary. However, not all of the players included in the charts should be considered cash game options. The charts are meant to show you — at a glance — which players have the most favorable salary-to-projection ratios, but when selecting players for your cash lineup, other factors need to be considered.
|DraftKings – Top QB Values – Week 8|
Pricey: Patrick Mahomes ($7,000) is the most “expensive” option, but at $7,000, he’s still affordable. He’s also our No. 1 value on the main slate, which is usually unheard of for a position’s top-priced player.
Mid-tier price: Kirk Cousins ($5,900) plays on Sunday night, but you might want in on slates that include the SNF game just to get some Cousins. The Saints have given up the second-most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks this year.
