Week 8 FanDuel Cash Game Picks
Andy Dalton vs. TB $7,800
I love the price and the matchup for Andy Dalton this week. Football Outsiders has Tampa Bay as the 31st ranked defense in the league, and the worst on the main slate. They rank 32nd in pass DVOA and have allowed the most passing yards per game. They’ve allowed the most points per game, the fourth-most yards per game and the most fantasy points to QBs. You can dial up Andy Dalton and all of his weapons as the Bengals’ 30.5 team total is the third highest of the week. TB has surrendered a league-high 18 passing touchdowns. The loss of Kwon Alexander makes this Buccaneers defense even worse.
Aaron Rodgers @ LAR $8,600
Aaron Rodgers is coming off a bye and is getting some of his pass catchers back in Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison. The Los Angeles Rams are going to score points, there’s no question there. They have the highest team implied total at 34.5. It’ll likely mean a lot of throws from Rodgers, who loves to call his own number inside the red zone. Rodgers has ranked inside the Top 2 in red zone passing attempts in three of the last four years. This is the highest total (56.5) of the week and it’s Rodgers’ DEF that has put him in a position, where he’s had to throw 98 times his last two games. He has 867 yards and five touchdowns over that span. His knee also looks good as he’s picked up at least 30 yards on the ground in two of his last three contests.
