Twitter: @philip_darrow & @ScottWill2909

We are back to look towards the main slate on Sunday for our DFS value pieces. Phil ended up with a great week closing the gap with Andy in the win column. Onto week 8 and whom we both think will be the best plays for your $$$.

Jalen Hurts vs Lions $7200 (Andy)

It can be stressful having pieces of the Eagles offense in fantasy, and sometimes it is best to simply look up your points once the game has finished. However, Hurts has been a fantasy star so far this season, never dropping below twenty-one points. I see no reason to think that will not continue against the Lions.

Matt Ryan vs Panthers $5900 (Andy)

Ryan has thrown the ball over forty times for the last three games (two of which went for 300 + yards), and to keep the offense moving, Ryan should continue to move the ball in this manner and use his freshly broken-out tight-end Kyle Pitts.

Daniel Jones vs KC $5600 (Phil)

The Chiefs look to rebound this week but have been horrid on defense all year and show no signs of correcting that. Jones should have some weapons back and will be dangerous this week.

Joe Burrow vs NYJ $7100 (Phil)

Burrow is showing he’s back from his knee injury and why Chase was the correct choice by the Bengals to pair with him. I would not hesitate to play him and think he and CJ will be a nice pairing that will give you more $ to work with elsewhere.

Running Backs

Joe Mixon vs Jets $6900 (Andy)

The Patriots running backs tore apart the Jet's run defense last weekend, with Damien Harris and JJ Taylor running into the endzone for two touchdowns each (as well as a touchdown catch for Bolden). Mixon should see a large workload and certainly has a chance to score.

James Robinson vs Seahawks $6600 (Andy)

The Seahawks will still have Geno Smith at QB in this game and are certainly not the offense they are with Wilson. Robinson seems to finally be receiving the workload his talent deserves. I think he can be placed into line-ups once again this weekend.

D’Andre Swift vs Phi $7100 (Phil)

The WR1 in Detroit this year is disguised as a RB. Swift already has 42 receptions leading the team and is only 1 target behind Hockenson for the team lead as well. Fire him up and watch him tally up the points with each reception this week.

Kenneth Gainwell vs Det $5000 (Phil)

With Miles Sanders on IR, this rookie now has his chance to shine. He catches the ball well and Detroit is horrid against defending RBs and he should feast this week.

Wide Receivers

Chris Godwin vs Saints $6400 (Andy & Phil)

Brown should be out once again, which means Godwin and Evans could receive a bump in targets. Evans will likely be given the ‘Lattimore treatment’ again, and Godwin will need to step up. Will he score is the biggest question, and our partners at Thrive have him with .5 total Rec TDs but we think he hits the over this week.

Michael Pittman vs Titans $5300 (Andy)

Why is Pittman still at this price? He has shown he can compete against the best defenses, has scored twenty or more points in two of the last three games, and is the clear top target for an improved Carson Wentz. And over at Thrive you can get him with the over of 5.5 receptions which Phil thinks is a no brainer this week.

Marvin Jones Jr vs Seattle $5900 (Phil)

Marvin is the bright spot amongst the Jax WRs and should feast against that horrid Seattle defense this weekend.
