Who had Dalvin Cook in Week 8 of Fantasy NFL? Dude was a beast on Sunday, running for 4 TDs and over 200 yards. So who is going to be the next Dalvin Cook for week 8, and who should you put in your DraftKings line up?
All your fantasy tips are here.
Justin Herbert $6800
Can we just award the rookie of the year award to Herbert and get this over with? Despite having an O-line that’s more porous than a homemade condom, Herbert continues to chunk up big yards. He’s averaging 27 fantasy points per game, not to mention almost 3 TDs per game. He’s great value under $7000.
Nick Foles $5500
Foles has been about as accurate as a guy circumcised by a cross-eyed rabbi. He sprays it all over the place, and even when he does hit a receiver, they hold onto it like someone just pissed in their hands. Why Foles? Well, they’re playing the Titans, who got absolutely gashed by Burrow and the Bengals last week. The Titans have problems covering receivers, which should give Robinson and Mooney some time to catch the balls. He’s good value, and sure to get some deep points.
Dalvin Cook $8200
What does a guy do after gashing a division rival for 4 TDs and 200 plus yards? He does the same thing the next week. Detroit has an atrocious D, so they will struggle to contain whatever the Vikings throw at them. Cook is too fast and strong to be held back, and should be able to grab at least 2 TDs and 120+ yards this Sunday.
David Johnson $5600
The Texans face the Jaguars in Week 9, in a contrasting match up between both teams. Houston is buoyed by the loss of their coach, and the return of healthy players. The Jags lost Minshew and loads of others, with QB Jake Luton at start. David Johnson will be employed by the Texans often, and the Jags will struggle to control all the movement on the field.
Justin Jackson $4900
The Chargers are going to need someone reliable to run the ball against the Raiders, and Jackson is a steal at $4900. No one has emerged as the go to Chargers running back, but Jackson has be valuable in short yardage and Redzone chances. He’s a great deal and should get at least 1 TD.
Keenan Allen $7000
As a fan of pairing, Allen is the perfect side dish to Herbert. Allen has been on fire since Herbert joined, and provided he stays healthy every game, he’s the go-to wide receiver for pretty much every down.
Justin Jefferson $6100
This speedy rookie has had some up and down games. Last week against the Packers he wasn’t really needed, as Dalvin Cook ran right through Green Bay like melted cheese. Jefferson should see plenty of targets against the Lions. He is great with yards after catch, which should be substantial in this game.
Jerry Jeudy $4700
Drew Lock looked great last week, if you only look at the fourth quarter. He’s not that great of a QB, but at least their D keeps them in the game. Luckily Lock has Jeudy, who has been a tight little blazer in the Broncos offence. At $4700 he’s deffo worth it so you can save money on other players while still banging points.
Noah Fant $4600
Fant has been a steady target for a Broncos team that lacks them. Solid hands and big presence, Fant has been a goldmine for fantasy points this season. The Falcons D is capital B ‘Bad’, so Fant should have no problem scoring against them.
Hunter Henry $4000
If you’re taking Herbert, why not look for Henry as well. The Raiders struggle against big tight ends, so this should be a real mess for them on Sunday. The Raiders are still hobbled by injuries, so this could be a big day for Henry.
They might be the lowly Washington Team, but their D has been pretty fast and ferocious of late. Their pass rush has helped keep them in games, and with a hobbled Giants O-line, they should make life hell for Daniel Jones.
