The Week 8 Money Making Daily Fantasy Picks Are In

We’re already approaching the half way mark of the 2016-17 NFL Season and we have your week 8 fantasy football picks ready to go. For all of those who don’t want to miss a game for the remainder of the NFL season, you can call our authorized DIRECTV dealer now at 1.800.630.0172 and ask them about Next Day Installation.


My pick at Quarterback this week is hands down TOM BRADY. My reasoning? Revenge! The Bills are the team that gave the Patriots their only loss this year while Brady was out serving his 4-game suspension and it was a 16-0 loss. Brady and the Patriots will make Rex Ryan pay for that. My second option at QB this week is JAMEIS WINSTON. The Buccaneers are taking on the Raiders this Sunday and the Raiders enter week 8 with the worst passing defense in the NFL. The Buccaneers are known to pass the ball heavy and Jameis can have a huge day. My sleeper pick is RYAN FITZPATRICK; Fitzpatrick is said to be “upset” for losing his starting position and he supposedly plays good when he’s “angry”, well this week they have the Browns. Show us something Fitz.

Running Back

My first selection at Running Back this week is DAVID JOHNSON. Although the Cardinals are playing the Panthers, their defense has struggled this year and Johnson is an all-purpose back who can rack up points rushing and receiving. My second selection is JEREMY HILL. The Bengals take on the Lions this week and their rush defense is the 7th worse in the league. My third selection or sleeper pick is CHRISTINE MICHAEL. Plainly put, the Seahawks take on the Saints (we all know how that goes).

Wide Receiver

At Wide Receiver I’m taking MIKE EVANS first. Just as I stated above the Buccaneers are taking on the team with the worse passing defense this week, the Bucs are a pass heavy team and Evans is Jameis Winston’s primary receiver. My second option at Receiver this week is BRANDON MARSHALL; A mad Ryan Fitzpatrick taking on a TERRIBLE Cleveland team with Marshall being the primary receiver has points points points written all over it. Third this week is JULIAN ELDEMAN. I expect Tom Brady to make the Bills pay this week and Eldeman is one of his favorite targets (outside of Gronk of course). Eldeman getting 9 catches for 100+ yards doesn’t seem to farfetched. I’ll also thrown WILLIE SNEAD IV in the mix this week as well as a sleeper pick. Although the Saints take on the Seahawks, somebody has to catch a few passes for Drew Brees, why not Snead? Cheap sleeper pick.

Tight End

To me the obvious pick is Gronk but since he’s so expensive you may need a solid cheaper option; simple, pick Gronk’s teammate MARTELLUS BENNETT. Gronk will face double teams all night which means Bennett will be in one-on-one coverage. Another option I like at Tight End this week is GREG OLSEN. The Panthers play the Cardinals who do have one of the leagues top passing defenses, but with Olsen being a crafty TE he normally draws a mismatch with a Line Backer trying to guard him.


One word; PATRIOTS! The Bills will more than likely come into the game without their most dangerous weapon in LeSean McCoy and as I’ve stated a few times now, the Patriots will be looking for revenge. Another quick Defense pick I’d recommend is the CINCINNATI BENGALS. The Bengals play the Redskins who may be without a few weapons this week.


The Cowboys Kicker DAN BAILEY is always a solid selection with the pick, same with the Bengals Kicker MIKE NUGENT.
