How goes your quest to building winning DFS lineups for NFL Week 8? Hopefully pretty smoothly as you slide into the Example Lineups to check out how yours compare to mine. It's a big week with no teams on a bye and there are a lot more high-priced players we want to get into our lineups than there are bargains to help us fit some salary. So goes the story of daily fantasy football. We're used to it by now, aren't we? If not, then as Public Enemy says, “Welcome to the Terrordome!” OK, so maybe it's not that bad. I don't want to scare you off, so let's stop with the pleasantries – you got enough of that in the Playbook and Dart Board, I'm sure – and get right into it.



Just a few notes here about the lineups below...

The cash lineups were built solely off the players I put in the Playbook. These are the guys who, unless I have indicated otherwise, offer up the higher floor and will help you cash in your Double-Ups and 50/50s. For GPP tournaments, particularly the large-field ones, you need to find alternative routes to the cash line. I will utilize players from the Playbook and the DFS Dart Board to fill in the gaps, but what I am looking for are some lower-owned stacks that make sense based on expected game flow and other news. You may also see in the GPP lineups, there may be some names I haven't discussed this week on the site, but have talked about during the week on the Fantasy Alarm Show or even on the Fantasy Alarm Sunday Gameday Show on SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio. You will also notice, though, that others on the site have mentioned some of these players in places such as the position coaches, so it's not like we're trying to hide anything from you. The only time, and I mean the only time you will see a player in a GPP lineup who hasn't been discussed is if we are using a stack and need a player from the other team coming back. But it's rare when that happens.

Again, these lineups are meant to serve as examples for you; a sounding board, as I said. They are not meant for you to plug in as your own. That's the lazy way and we don't condone it. We are trying to teach you how to be a better DFS player; we aren't lineup-sellers. You should be creating your own lineups using all the information we provide you throughout the week and then coming here to see if there is anything you may have missed or simply for an alternative perspective.

**Be sure to check the Playbook and Dart Board for late changes

Best of luck to you this week and let's make some money!


According to Adam Schefter:

49ers’ QB Brock Purdy has cleared concussion protocol and has no injury designation against the Cincinnati Bengals

Cardinals did not activate QB Kyler Murray and he is ineligible to play Sunday vs. the Ravens

Rams activated RB Darrell Henderson from their practice squad for Sunday’s game vs. the Cowboys

Browns’ RB Jerome Ford, who is listed as questionable for today’s game due to his sprained ankle, wants and intends to play vs. the Seahawks, but Cleveland wants to see how he looks and feels in pre-game warmups before allowing it

Colts’ RB Zack Moss, listed as questionable for Sunday due to elbow and heel injuries, wants to see how his foot feels once he puts pressure on it in pre-game warmups before deciding whether he can play vs. the Saints

WR Tyler Lockett is listed as questionable for today with a hamstring injury, he is expected to play Sunday vs. the Browns

Broncos elevated WR Tre'Quan Smith for Sunday’s game vs. the Chiefs

Texans’ WR Robert Woods is dealing with a foot injury that is expected to sideline him 2-3 weeks

Miami activated six-time Pro-Bowl CB Jalen Ramsey today and he is expected to make his Dolphins’ debut Sunday vs. the Patriots

Other News:

Raheem Mostert (ankle) said he will play in Week 8 against the Patriots.

Browns removed Kareem Hunt from their final injury report for Week 8 against the Seahawks.

Browns elevated RB Jordan Wilkins from the practice squad

Texans WR Tank Dell (concussion) has been cleared for Week 8 vs the Panthers.

Eagles elevated WR Julio Jones from the practice squad for Week 8 against the Commanders

Panthers WR Laviska Shenault (ankle) will not play in Week 8 vs the Texans.

Browns TE David Njoku (knee) was removed from the injury report.

Patriots removed TE Hunter Henry (ankle) from their Week 8 injury report against the Dolphins.

Saints removed Juwan Johnson from the team’s Week 8 injury report against the Colts.


NYJ/NYG - A few passing showers, never anything too heavy. Winds look fairly manageable. Again a yellow tag because I think they'll see some rain, but as of now I don't expect a washout.

JAC/PIT - Scattered showers, more likely early than late. Winds stay fairly light.

KC/DEN - Freezing cold, game will be played with temps in the 20s. Winds fairly light. While there was a big snow storm yesterday, continuing into parts of this morning, most of the snow is over with by kickoff. That's not to say we won't still see some flurries, or some snow on the field, but not expecting major impacts here.


As a reminder, when you're stacking in GPP, you always want to run someone back from the opposing team. One-sided games often turn to a running back seeing higher-than-usual volume or the back-ups start to play. For a stack to really pop, the other team needs to keep things competitive.
