DraftKings Week 8 Slate Breakdown with Cash and GPP Picks
It’s Week 8 and these are my DraftKings cash game and tournament strategies. By offering a general approach to the week, along with a player pool to consider, you should walk away feeling well-equipped no matter your bankroll strategy or game selection process.
Main Slate Cash Game Strategy
The two quarterbacks on the two teams implied for over 30 points this week—Jared Goff ($6,000) and Patrick Mahomes ($7,000)—both rank in the top two in projected value and odds to hit cash game value. Their difference in salary can be explained by how much of their respective offenses each quarterback has accounted for this year. While Goff has been responsible for 68 percent of the Rams total yards and 56 percent of all offensive touchdowns, Mahomes makes up 76 percent of Kansas City’s yards and 83 percent of their scores. Mahomes has hit the 300-yard bonus six times this year while no other quarterback has done so more than four.
