NFL DFS FanDuel GPP Picks Week 8 (Fantasy Football)
Building winning GPP lineups, by definition, is tough. There are, however, some key things to look for when filling out your roster. First and foremost is ceiling; we want the players with the potential to score the most points. Next is leverage; we want the players that fall through the cracks. Finally, we have to build a lineup that tells a winning story through game script and stacking.
For a deeper dive into GPP strategy, make sure to check out the Tournament Strategy episode that Borg and Betz put out over the offseason, and make sure to stay locked into the DFS and Betting Podcast.
A final note before diving into the picks. Don’t ignore Borg’s Cash Picks article. It pairs perfectly with my GPP picks article, as it’s typically a good idea to mix in some value plays, especially if they fit the GPP-winning story you write.
Tua Tagovailoa vs. NE – $8,200
It’s looking like Tua will be buried under Jalen Hurts, Patrick Mahomes, and Lamar Jackson on this slate. There’s nothing wrong with those QBs in a tournament, but I want to take a shot if I can use Tua as leverage on the field. He leads the league in adjusted yards/attempt (9.3) and is second in TD percentage (6.6%). The Dolphins have a 28.3 team implied total, and if they hit or exceed that mark, Tua is in for another big day.
