DraftKings Week 8 Cash Game Picks and Strategy

In this space each week will be the top cash plays on DraftKings with strategies on how to build a profitable cash lineup. The backbone of 4for4’s cash game approach is our proprietary value metric, which goes beyond simple point per dollar projections. That value calculation extends to a player’s odds of hitting cash game value based on their implied volatility according to their floor, median and ceiling projections.

This week’s top three quarterback values are in three distinct salary tiers, allowing for a wide range of allocation strategies at each position.

Josh Allen ($8,100) is appropriately priced above $8K but projects almost four full points above this week’s QB2 in salary while costing just $500 more. Buffalo’s 31.75 implied point total is the highest on the slate against a struggling Dolphins defense, ranked 22nd in schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed (aFPA) to quarterbacks. Only three teams have thrown at a higher rate in neutral game script than the Bills, and Miami’s defense faces the seventh-highest passing rate in neutral situations. Allen is one of seven quarterbacks to account for at least 75% of his team’s total offensive yards and touchdowns.
