FanDuel Week 8 Slate Breakdown with Cash and GPP Picks
In this space each week, I give my overall FanDuel cash game and tournament strategy thoughts and discuss how players fit into these 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. For those new to 4for4, we use a proprietary value metric to determine the best values across all positions, rather than the flawed raw point-per-dollar value you usually find across the industry. An extension of our value metric and projections is our GPP Leverage Score, a single value that drives our decisions on which players we can be most confident using in GPPs as it relates to their expected ownership in large-field tournaments.
Main Slate Cash Game Strategy
The two most expensive quarterbacks on the slate are easily the best plays of the week. While trying to pay down at quarterback is often preferred, there is enough value across the other positions this week to easily get to the top quarterback plays: Deshaun Watson ($8,400) or Russell Wilson ($8,600). Both quarterbacks rank among the top three on the main slate in fantasy points per pass attempt while facing defenses ranked in the bottom two in schedule-adjusted fantasy points (aFPA) allowed to the position. Houston and Seattle are both projected to score over 28 points.
