Pack your lineup with Eagles, Packers in Week 8
It's Week 8 of the National Football League season, and we have another great Daily Fantasy Sports provider to try. Check out FanWars.com, and get in on the action.
(FanWars.com salaries in parentheses) (all times ET)
Nick Foles, Philadelphia ($12300 at ARI): Foles is rested after a bye week, and the Eagles will be on the road facing the Arizona Cardinals pass defense which ranks 31st in the NFL, allowing 284.8 yards per game with 10 touchdowns allowed in six games. Look for Foles and the rested Eagles high-octane offense to perform admirably.
Anthony Dixon, Buffalo ($5000 at NYJ): Following injuries to RBs Fred Jackson (groin) and C.J. Spiller (collarbone), Dixon is expected to see a lion's share of carries against the Jets. At a minimal DFS salary, Dixon won't need to do much to earn his low salary.
Eddie Lacy, Green Bay ($5220 at NO): Sunday night, the total is set rather high, so Vegas expects a shootout. Fantasy owners should expect a track meet, too, and Lacy will certainly grab his piece of the pie. He has posted four rushing touchdowns over the past four games. He should go for at least 60 rushing yards, a rushing touchdown and a handful of receptions.
Jeremy Maclin, Philadelphia ($5000 at ARI): Maclin managed just three catches for 16 yards in his last game, but before that he had managed at least 57 yards in four of his first five games while finding the end zone four times during the span. In fact, he was targeted 10 times in each of the first five games. Against a porous Arizona pass defense, Maclin should post a nice bounce-back stat line.
Golden Tate, Detroit ($5610 vs ATL - London): Tate is expected to handle the No. 1 receiver job again, and he faces a very favorable matchup at Wembley Stadium in London against the Falcons. Atlanta ranks 29th against the pass, allowing 274.4 yards per game through the air while yielding nine pass plays of 40 or more yards. Look for Tate to flirt with the century mark in yardage while also meandering into the end zone at least once.
Zach Ertz, Philadelphia ($5000 at ARI): Ertz has a minimal price tag, but as mentioned, he will be facing a very forgiving Arizona Cardinals pass defense. He has tailed off a little over his past two games, but he is coming off a bye and should well exceed salary expectations.
