Week 8 Cash Game Picks on DraftKings
Ben Roethlisberger vs. Cleveland $6,100
This $6,100 price is one I want to take advantage of. Big Ben ranks second in passing yards per game and leads a Steelers team that ranks fifth in yards per game and fifth in points per game. Coming off the bye week, the Steelers get to play at home against a Browns defense that ranks 26th in passing yards allowed per game. Cleveland does rank #1 overall in Pass DVOA. However, Roethlisberger and the Steelers passing game is one of the best in the league. They’ll find success on Sunday as their 29.5 point Over/Under (third highest of the week) indicates.
Matthew Stafford vs. Seattle $5,600
This spot on paper doesn’t jump out as an obvious favorable matchup. Seattle ranks 3rd in passing yards allowed per game and 3rd in Pass DVOA. Meanwhile, Stafford hasn’t exactly been tearing up the league like in years past. Stafford ranks 18th in passing yards per game while quarterbacking a Lions team that ranks 12th in yards per game and 12th in points per game. However, rostering Stafford at home against an average defense at only $5,600 is extremely intriguing to me. The Seahawks are not the defense they used to be and only look above average on paper due to an extremely favorable early-season schedule.
