With all 32 teams in action on the Week 8 NFL schedule, the NFL DFS player pool is filled with elite NFL DFS picks. More games should lead to increased variety in NFL DFS lineups, so who should daily Fantasy football players target in their Week 8 NFL DFS stacks? Rams receiver Puka Nacua was one of the NFL DFS breakouts early in the season. Even after Cooper Kupp’s return, Nacua has proven he’s not going anywhere with 19 receptions on 30 targets over the last three weeks. The Rams play at Dallas this week and the Cowboys have yet to allow a receiver to record 100 yards in a game.
How should this affect your Week 8 NFL DFS strategy on sites like FanDuel and DraftKings? Can you still trust either of the Rams receivers in Week 8 NFL DFS lineups or should you look elsewhere? Before locking in any NFL DFS picks for the Week 8 NFL schedule on Sunday on sites like DraftKings and FanDuel, be sure to check out the NFL DFS advice, strategy, and stacks from SportsLine daily Fantasy expert Mike McClure.
McClure is a legendary professional DFS player with more than $2 million in career winnings. He uses a powerful prediction model that simulates every snap of NFL action, taking factors such as matchups, statistical trends, and injuries into account. This allows him to find the best DFS values that he shares only with members at SportsLine. His methodology has led to enormous cashes on FanDuel and DraftKings.
He took down two high-stakes tournaments on FanDuel in 2020 and recorded a pair of top-10 finishes in tournaments with over 130,000 entrants on DraftKings. His lineups also finished inside the top 1% in more than a dozen other tournaments. Last year, he won the DraftKings Millionaire Maker twice and the FanDuel Million once.
Top NFL DFS picks for Week 8
One of McClure’s top NFL DFS picks for Sunday is Saints running back Alvin Kamara at $7,300 on DraftKings and $8,300 on FanDuel. Despite missing the first three games of the season due to a suspension, Kamara has the second-most receptions on the Saints this season. His 35 catches are just four behind Chris Olave (39).
It’s clear quarterback Derek Carr is relying on Kamara on short routes to get the ball in space, evidenced by Kamara’s 12 receptions on 14 targets for 91 yards on Thursday Night Football last week. The seven-year running back added 62 rushing yards, totaling 153 yards, and has posted at least 80 total yards in all four games this season. The Saints play the Colts, who have allowed at least 37 points their last two games, so New Orleans will have opportunities to score and move the ball.
Part of McClure’s optimal NFL DFS strategy also includes rostering Chiefs running back Isiah Pacheco at $6,100 on DraftKings and $7,400 on FanDuel. The Chiefs have not had a 1,000-yard running back since the Patrick Mahomes era began in 2018, but Pacheco is on pace to end that drought. He’s racked up over 1,400 scrimmage yards over his last 17 games and enters Week 8 with touchdowns in four of his last five contests.
Pacheco posted 98 yards two weeks ago against the Broncos, who are the Chiefs’ Week 8 opponent. He also had a career-high six receptions in that game and has had nothing but success against Denver in his brief career. Across three contests against the Broncos, Pacheco has gained at least 93 yards or scored a touchdown in every one of them. See the rest of McClure’s NFL DFS player pool right here.
