DraftKings Daily Fantasy Football Helper for Week 8

Which studs and value plays should you target in Week 8?

Week 8 kicks off with a bang as we get this week's highest projected scoring game -- the Patriots versus the Dolphins -- rolling on Thursday night. The Week 8 slate has great mix of projected close games and blowouts, and we'll take a close look at which players to target from each of these games and utilize in your lineups this week.

Remember, as a rule of thumb with PPR scoring, you want your players to hit three times their value; that is to say for each $1,000 in salary, we want that player to achieve three fantasy points (If Cam Newton has a $7,000 salary, we want him to hit 21 fantasy points to be considered worthy of rostering).

Here, we'll also take a look at Guaranteed Prize Pool (GPP) players with the potential to surpass that threshold while being lower owned compared to the rest of the players at his position.

Of course, numberFire also offers a great tool for premium members, allowing you to build customizable lineups by inputting your players and seeing what our projections offer for the week. There's even an optimization function that'll use our algorithms to help fill out the rest of your daily lineup and give you the best chance of succeeding on game day.

Using Vegas spreads and totals, our Net Expected Points (NEP) metric, and some daily fantasy gamesmanship, let's take a look at which players you should target this weekend.

As a reminder, the Buffalo Bills, Jacksonville Jaguars, Philadelphia Eagles, and Washington Redskins will all be on their bye weeks.
