2021 Week 8 DraftKings Slate-Breakers

When it comes to DFS, everyone looks for those slate-breaking players (and if you are not, then you should be!), players who can win you the big bucks if they have a day and lower ownership, even better! This especially matters in tournaments, where you are looking to differentiate from your competition and sometimes even yourself and your other lineups, as opposed to cash games, where you would be after more ‘safer’ lineups to secure a more likely pot of cash. 

These articles will highlight those players who I feel can break the week’s slate and players you should be, at the very least, considering, going for position-by-position. 

Week Seven Review

Another solid week for myself in Week Seven makes it back-to-back weeks for 4x returns on stakes, which I cannot complain about whatsoever!

As referred to last week, these types of weeks are ultimately easier to pick your lineups because you have fewer scenarios to consider, fewer players to evaluate, etc. 

Apologies for my running back picks. They were terrible. The Cincinnati game was one I called horribly. Mixon got nowhere near the work I thought he would get, and instead, Chase had a career day. Luckily the field was lightweight on Chase, so his impact was minimal, but that won’t happen again from my perspective and the field. 

On the other hand, happy with the returns on plays like Godwin, who became more obvious as the week went on, Ertz in his debut for Arizona, and Jalen Hurts continues to prove his matchup-proof qualities.
