Week 8 NFL DFS Expert Picks for DraftKings & FanDuel Lineups

Awesemo Expert: Alex Baker

The Eagles are looking like the chalk stack this week with a great matchup against Detroit and an easy runback with D’Andre Swift. I like that spot as well but we should mix it up and the easiest way is with stacks. Tampa Bay vs. New Orleans looks pretty nice as an option with Chris Godwin/Mike Evans being good values with Antonio Brown out. Carolina vs. Atlanta is a nice matchup; even though Sam Darnold has been playing poorly being in a dome against a team that loves to pass could make for a game with big passing numbers.

Awesemo Expert: Nick Lepri

This week I am a huge fan of Michael Pittman Jr. While the Titans’ defense looked stout against Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs last week, I expect the Colts offense to look strong against them. Last week against the 49ers, Pittman caught all four of his targets for 105 yards and a touchdown. He is the clear No. 1 option for Carson Wentz, who also is looking to have a strong year. Fire up Pittman this week.

Awesemo Expert: Eric Lindquist

I’m expecting a massive bounceback from a Chargers offense that looked unstoppable against the Browns in Week 5 before their Week 6 dud in Baltimore. And if Austin Ekeler can’t give it a go, Justin Herbert and his pass-catchers become even better plays than they already are against a Patriots team that surrendered 445 passing yards to Dak Prescott and would’ve been torched by Tom Brady and the Bucs if it weren’t for a monsoon. Other than those two games, the Patriots haven’t faced a single formidable passing attack, so fire up Keenan Allen, Mike Williams and Jared Cook at will in tournaments.

I'm a wannabe athlete whose athletic career ended after a long tenure riding the bench through JV baseball. The fantasy sports and sports betting degen side of me blossomed at age 12 when I found fantasy baseball and football, and led to a 12-year submergence into the poker scene -- I started playing "secret" cash games in my parents' basements by age 14. Luckily, I've finally found what I love to do -- write about "fake sports," which my girlfriend refers to it as, though it only took me until age 30. If you decide you like the words I write and follow me on Twitter (@nd_joyce), I apologize in advance for the copious amounts of dog photos you will see.
