TX’s NFL Week 8 Daily Fantasy Plays – (Afternoon Only)

TX's FanDuel NFL Daily Fantasy Plays

TX’s NFL DFS Afternoon Slate Plays – Week 8

What’s up, 4 DEEP?! My article will cover the four afternoon games on FanDuel. Ask me any lineup questions in Discord before lock (@TX). Let’s get into it!!


Favorite Stacks:

  • Chiefs
  • Ravens
  • Seahawks

TX’s Elite QBs:

  • Patrick Mahomes On FanDuel, the price is actually down. I think he’s the safest QB on the slate going against the 32nd ranked defense allowing 2.5 passing touchdowns a game and 31st defense against passing yards, allowing 280+ yards a game. I think the floor/ceiling combo is safe enough to go him over Lamar. 
  • Lamar Jackson He will come in at lower ownership than Mahomes this week. I think the Ravens finally figured it out the deciding factor is the price between them. It’s only $200 on FanDuel, so I’d rather pay up, but Jackson is a nice leverage play.

TX’s Mid Tier QB:

  • Russell Wilson At home in what should be a shootout against the Chiefs. He hasn’t showed us much, but if ever there were a spot to do it… 
  • Geno Smith Always brings a solid floor and has upside at this price. He’s the cheapest he has been all season. 
  • Joe Burrow We are getting a discount on him, but he’s on the road against the 49ers.

TX’s Door #3 QB:

  • PJ Walker You never know…. He’s been decent enough… The Seahawks are 23rd overall, allowing 252 passing yards a game over their last nine games and 29th, allowing 37 passing attempts a game.

TX’s Elite RBs:

  • CMC Need I say more? I would prefer Purdy to clear concussion protocol. 
  • Isiah Pacheco Cheaper than Walker and we will get the same result. 
  • Kenneth Walker Price is steep, but has the homerun threat.

TX’s Mid Tier RBs:

  • Kareem Hunt  If Ford is out, then Hunt is even that much more in play. 
  • Gus Edwards Seems to be the lead back here against a weak Cardinals’ rush defense. Always worry in this offense who will vulture a touchdown.

TX’s Door #3 RBs:

  • Jaleel McLaughlin I think he’s the explosive back in this offense in a game they will be playing from behind in.

TX’s Elite WRs:

  • Courtland Sutton The slate is weak at WR, so I’m going to Sutton. The Chiefs rank 31st to WR and Sutton is the Broncos’ redzone target.
  • Ja’Marr Chase Tough match-up against the 49ers, but with the QB situation question in San Francisco, I think it puts Chase over Aiyuk.
  • Brandon Aiyuk If Purdy is in, then he’s above Chase, just need the news.

TX’s Mid Tier WRs:

  • Tyler Lockett/DK Metcalf Both in play. I lean Lockett at the slight discount. Still waiting on the DK ceiling game. 
  • Marquise Brown Ravens gave him bulletin board material. He can hit a HR on one play and has provided a solid floor this season. 
  • Zay Flowers Has proven he can play and is getting more and more involved each week. 
  • Rashee Rice Nice value play in the highest over/under game on the slate.

TX’s Door #3 WRs:

  • Jauan Jennings The Bengals rank 30th to WR2. 
  • Rashod Bateman Cardinals rank 29th to WR3.

TX’s Elite TEs:

  • Travis Kelce No analysis needed.
  • Mark Andrews – I think he’s a nice pivot off Kelce. Andrews doesn’t have the same floor, but has a comparable ceiling at a cheaper price.

TX’s Mid Tier TEs:

  • George Kittle – The match-up is great, but Darnold might start and I think that hurts his upside, but he’s significantly cheaper than the other two. 
  • Trey McBride Nice price tag and has become the go-to guy over Ertz.

TX’s Door #3 TEs:

  • David Njoku With Walker starting, he should see a bigger role.


  • Bengals If Darnold is on track to start, I think they are interesting. 
  • Chiefs Defense has looked good this year, should have plenty of opportunities. 
  • Ravens Looked good last week, but on the road against a Cardinal team that plays better at home. 
  • Seahawks At home with Walker starting.
