PRO Week 8 DFS Main Slate Breakdown and Walk-Through: The BLITZ (Premium Video and Podcast)

Alex Dunlap, Derek Carty and Will Priester walk through the Week 8 Main Slate on DraftKings and FanDuel.


  1. In PPR. Thinking about dropping MSanders and picking up either:
    ACollins or R Penney. Or KGAinwell or TPollard or MDavis
    This would be my RB 4/5 for my bench?
    What would you recommend ?

    1. If you need someone to start this week, I’d go with Collins, otherwise, I may hold on to Sanders.

  2. I have Carr, picked up Wentz to play this week and kept Carr
    Other QB available for this week. Pick one instead of Wentz for this week?
    Tannehill. . DJones. TBridgewater. TLawrence.

    1. Tannehill now not available

      1. would have preferred Tanny but Wentz is fine. Drop Carr and pick up a handcuff RB before the games in case someone gets hurt

  3. Fade Priester

    1. Who?

    2. Fade Who?

  4. Need two RBs and a flex (3 total) in ppr: Gibson, Gainwell, Tee Higgins, Michael Carter, Javonte Williams, + Zack Moss.

    Also start (1) between Hilton, OBJ, Higbee, Fant, Penny in ppr?

    Finally, McLaurin or Mitchell in .5 PPR?

    1. Gibson Moss Tee Higgins for me.

  5. Start 3 out of these 4 in ppr:

    Darryl Williams
    Chuba Hubbard
    Brandin Cooks


    1. Chubb, Chuba, Cooks, tough one

  6. Post By

    If Kadarius Toney plays, I think he’s my flex in a 1 pt ppr. If he doesn’t, I need help.

    David Johnson
    Kenneth Gainwell
    Damien Williams


    1. you won’t know about Toney for sure until after all those guys have played. I’d roll the dice with Toney, but make sure he’s in your flex. You’ll probably be able to pick up some other scrub from the MNF game if he can’t go.

        I love it. I love playing the upside of Toney.

        Thank you!

  7. 1 pt ppr need 2 please Lamb Claypool Toney and need a qb Heinecke Lawrence Bridgewater Winston thank you

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      If Dak plays you start Lamb for sure- wouldn’t mind playing Toney either if he goes but you would need to make sure to have a couple of back up options available to you if one or both doesn’t pan out tonight or tomorrow. Claypool is a decent play so if you want to be a little more cautious or can’t really get ahold of two insurance guys that are viable for Lamb and Toney—- then you probably play Claypool and wait for more information on the other two— while still having at least one back up insurance plan in mind if they both fall through vs having got have 2 on deck

  8. Henderson or eckler. 2 point Ppr a must win

    1. Love Henderson this wk- but don’t see how you can start him over Ekeler in a 2 pt ppr- I’d probably roll AE….good luck

  9. 1 Pt. pPR: k Herbert or KCs D. williams
