FanDuel DFS NFL Week 8 picks and lineup advice: Wide Receiver

Cooper Kupp ($9200) is for real, and touchdown regression that so many people predicted earlier in the season looks unlikely. Now he gets a matchup against a terrible Houston Texans defense and has a good chance to have his fifth multi-touchdown game of the year.

Similarly, Ja’Maar Chase ($8200) has been on a tear and gets a soft matchup against the New York Jets. However, of the two I would much rather go with Kupp considering he has seen double-digit targets in every single game and Chase has only seen double-digit targets in two.

Similar to Justin Herbert, I think that the Los Angeles Chargers pass catchers are going to come in extremely under-rostered. For that reason, both Mike Williams ($7600) and Keenan Allen ($6900) are great values, especially in tournament lineups. The Patriots have yet to keep a valid opponent in check, with their three wins coming against the Jets twice and the Texans.

At the end of the day, Stefon Diggs ($7300) is the best value at any position on the slate and I have a hard time not locking him into every single one of my lineups. While he has not had the most impressive season so far, he is still seeing the targets and has the talent and matchup to do some serious damage. At only $7300 Diggs is an extreme mis-price and I do not think we see him this cheap for the rest of the season.

As for some cheaper plays, Tee Higgins ($6300) is certainly my favorite. He saw fourteen targets last week but has not found the end zone since Week 2. In a vacuum, I do not view him and Ja’Maar Chase too differently, so Higgins is obviously the better value at $2000 cheaper.

Finally, for the ugly play of the week, Jamal Agnew ($5300) has been seeing an uptick in targets in previous weeks and now gets a strong matchup against a weak Seattle secondary. It is not pretty but he has a great chance to pay off at his dirt-cheap salary.
