NFL DFS DraftKings Cash Picks: Week 8 (Fantasy Football)
NFL DFS cash games are all about building a high-floor lineup that can win in head-to-heads, 50/50s, and double-ups. Each week I’ll highlight my favorite cash game picks that I have some confidence heading into the weekend to put into my player pools.
For more on cash game strategy and the mechanics of it, make sure you listen to our DFS Cash Overview episode. Be sure you’re also subscribed to the DFS Podcast where Kyle and I go through the main slate every Friday and recap each slate on Tuesdays. Let’s get after it!

Jalen Hurts $8,300
If you’re looking to spend up for QB this week, Jalen Hurts is the no brainer cash option. In season long leagues, Hurts has finished as a top-12 QB in five of six games, and now he gets a dream matchup against the Steelers. Pittsburgh has given up the 6th most yards per pass attempt, 3rd most passing yards, and 3rd most passing TDs. Of course, we know Hurts is also going to pad the stat line with his legs. He leads the position with 9.3 designed runs per game. Philly carries the slate’s 2nd highest team total in Week 8.
