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.

Josh Allen $8,100
On a slate without Patrick Mahomes, Dak Prescott, Kyler Murray, Lamar Jackson or Aaron Rodgers, Allen is the safest play on the board, but he’s priced aggressively as the QB1 at $8,100. Even still, it’s hard to poke holes in this spot for Josh Allen with the Bills facing off against the Dolphins at home in Week 8. In his career against Miami, Josh Allen is averaging 297 passing yards and 2.7 pass TD. Miami ranks 26th against the QB position and 28th in pass defense DVOA and Vegas projects the Bills to score 31.5 points, the highest implied total of the week.
