Todd Gurley – (CPP $411) – Our number one running back for the week is also the top CPP play. Ranked only sixth in salary in a contest the Rams are favoured in by 7.5 points Gurley is looking like a must start in FanDuel contests. Start the sensational rookie in all contests.
Le’veon Bell – (CPP $437) – It is not often the top two CPP running backs are also our top two rated running backs for any given week so it should go without saying that this is a week to stud out the running back position over at FanDuel. Get Bell, who is expected to have Big Ben back this week, started in all contests.
Antonio Brown (CPP $450) – Ok, by now you think I am probably not even trying here and just throwing out the names of all the top ranked plays for the week but, yes, Brown is also one of of the top CPP plays this week at FanDuel. Ranked fifth in salary and expected to be the weeks top receiver with Big Ben back Brown should be started universally.
Stefon Diggs (CPP $481) – Diggs continues to make fantasy waves and is still a strong play in .5 PPR contests like FanDuel. Diggs is a top three CPP play for week eight at FanDuel and is quickly becoming one of the brightest young talents in the league. Ranked only 21st in salary among wide receivers there is significant potential value here and Diggs should be slotted into lineups wherever humanly possible.
Drew Brees (CPP $400) – With an over/under line against the Giants set at 50 by Vegas this is expected to be the second highest scoring contest of the week and should provide ample opportunity for Breesy to generate fantasy points for FanDuel owners. Brees remains an elite talent who is just starting to click with his myriad of new weapons and could be in line for a big week and could finally crack the three touchdown threshold in what is expected to be a competitive contest from start to finish with a spread of only minus one in favor of the Saints.
