FanDuel Single-Game Daily Fantasy Football Helper: Week 8 Sunday Night (Packers at Bills)

As numberFire's top option with a 25.2 FanDuel point projection, Buffalo's Josh Allen stands out as an elite MVP candidate for Sunday night's single-game slate. Who else rates well for Week 8's matchup between the Packers and Bills?

In a unique fantasy format, single-game slates feature five flex spots with identical scoring to the main slate. However, kickers are included in these contests, and there is an "MVP" roster slot. The MVP receives 1.5-times his total fantasy points, making this spot crucial.

Our Brandon Gdula has done a deep dive on single-game strategy, and we have projections for the single-game slate if you select the game from the slate tab. It's worth checking out both of those things before you make your lineups.

MVP Candidates

Josh Allen ($17,500): Despite a tough matchup versus a Green Bay Packers unit ranked third (11.9) in FanDuel points allowed per game to quarterbacks, Allen stands as numberFire's clear leader in expected fantasy points with a 25.2 projection. In an offense that clearly relies on their quarterback to make plays with a 63.5% pass percentage, Allen unique dual-threat talent can be seen in Week 8's expectations including 24.1 completions for 2.2 touchdowns and 259.7 yards and Sunday night's second highest rushing projection with 8.7 carries for 44.3 yards.

Stefon Diggs ($15,000): While Diggs may have a tough potential spot against Green Bay's top cornerback Jaire Alexander (ranked 40th via Pro Football Focus), the 28-year old ranks second overall with a 15.6 FanDuel point projection and leads all pass catchers in targets (10.2), receptions (6.9), yardage (79.5), and receiving touchdowns (0.69). According to Rich Hriibar, the Packers have allowed top wideouts to score five touchdowns already this season.

Aaron Rodgers ($14,500): After recording touchdown rates of 7.0% and 9.1% in his last two seasons, Rodgers' production this season has regressed to a 4.5% mark despite logging a higher average amount of pass attempts. Even in a difficult spot versus a Buffalo defense allowing just 12.4 FanDuel points per game to his position, Rodgers' expectations still ranks third overall at 14.8 FanDuel points.

Aaron Jones ($14,000): If the Packers stand any chance on Sunday night, Green Bay's offense will need their versatile back to contribute in a big way versus a Bills' team ranked fourth (15.7) in FanDuel points allowed per game to his position. After several games of inconsistent playing time, the 27-year old logged a season-high 74% offensive snap percentage in Week 7 while also seeing a promising amount of volume in the passing game including 9 receptions for 53 yards on 10 targets.

Flex Considerations

Gabriel Davis ($12,500): In an explosive role utilizing 24% of his targets 20 or more yards downfield and 52% between 10-to-19, Davis stands as Sunday night's second rated pass catcher with 3.3 receptions for 50.3 yards on 5.5 targets. Buffalo's explosive wideout will face a Packers' unit allowing 6.4 yards per attempt and 9.3 per completion.

Devin Singletary ($12,000): While Buffalo's offense prefers to move the ball in the air, Singletary still has an undervalued opportunity against a Green Bay unit ranked 24th (21.5) in FanDuel points allowed per game to running backs. In his last appearance, the Bills relied heavily on their starter in Week 6, accounting for a season-high 21 touches for 107 scrimmage yards on a 86% offensive snap percentage.

Romeo Doubs ($11,500): With Allen Lazard ruled out, the Packers' rookie wideout may get one more shot at extended playing time despite logging an airball in Week 7. Among Green Bay's pass catchers, Doubs ranks first on his team in receptions (4.4), yards (49.6) and targets (7.2).

A.J. Dillon ($11,000): Despite logging a season-low 30% offensive snap percentage in his most recent outing, Dillion still ranks third on his team in fantasy production (8.6 FanDuel points) and second in scrimmage yards (59.3) against a Bills' unit allowing 22.2 touches for 82.3 scrimmage yards per game to backfields

Buffalo D/ST ($9,500): On 253 pass attempts, the Packers have allowed a concerning 21.9% pressure rate, 19 quarterback hits, and an average of 2.1 seconds in the pocket while Buffalo's defense has generated a 22.9% pressure percentage and a 10.2% quarterback knockdown rate.

Tyler Bass ($9,500) / Mason Crosby ($9,000): In 11 home games since last season, Bass has converted 82.6% of his 23 field goal attempts and 100% of his 33 extra point tries while Crosby has accounted for a 68.4% field goal conversion rate and a 92.9% extra point made percentage in 12 contests on the road.

Robert Tonyan ($9,000): In a middling spot giving up 5.3 receptions for 48.3 yards on 7.8 targets per game to tight ends, Tonyan ranks third among his team with 3.2 receptions for 33.2 yards on 4.6 targets.

Dawson Knox ($8,500): After a one game absence with foot and hamstring injuries, Knox returned to a full-time role, registering a 94.7% route participation rate and a 85% offensive snap percentage in Week 6.

Sammy Watkins ($7,000): Ranking second among Sunday night's slate in value with a 1.16 rating, Green Bay's veteran is a viable lower salary option as his team's second expected pass catcher with 3.8 receptions for 47.1 yards on 6.3 targets.
