Week 8 Pick’Em Selections on DraftKings
GPP: Andrew Luck at Oakland
Luck leads the league in pass attempts (311) and ranks second in pass TDs (20). He very well could blow-up this week against a free-falling Raiders team that ranks 22nd in passing yards allowed per game and 31st in Pass DVOA.
Cash: Aaron Rodgers at Los Angeles Rams
Rodgers is the best NFL player I’ve ever seen and he gets to play in the best fantasy game of the entire week this Sunday in a contest with a current 56.5 point Over/Under. Rodgers ranks fourth in the league in passing yards per game and leads a Packers team that ranks fourth in yards per game. Although the Rams defense looks solid on paper – rankings of ninth in passing yards allowed per game and seventh in Pass DVOA – they’ve shown kinks in their armor this year in the secondary. Rodgers will absolutely find ways to exploit this matchup, especially with his pass-catchers getting healthier.
