It’s finally here- Week 8 of the 2022 season, and another DraftKings main slate. We are back offering you DFS advice to try and help you navigate your way to victories throughout the season. The players selected here are based on their price, their ability to hit value and likely ownership. The selections are leaning more towards GPP slates, rather than cash (50/50) slates. But let’s get into it

Jalen Hurts v PIT ($8,300)
With how the calendar has ended up with prime time games and bye weeks, Hurts is the main weekly headliner on this main slate. The Eagles offense is moving the ball effectively, with Hurts making plays on the ground and through the air. Against this Steelers secondary, in Philadelphia, it’s a pricey play but one that is likely to pay off.
Tua Tagovailoa @DET ($6,200)
My projections and salary model puts Tua as the second most valuable QB on the slate, behind only Sam Ehlinger ($4,000) who really skews the model. The Cowboys may have struggled against this Detroit defense, but I can’t see Miami having the same struggle. This game is currently the highest over/ under on the slate, and the points are likely to come through the air. Stacking (or even double-stacking) Tua with Tyreek Hill ($8,500) and Jaylen Waddle ($6,700) is a nice way to start your lineup.
Andy Dalton v LV ($5,500)
Dalton is set to start this week against the Raiders. Ideally you’d want him to have some of his receivers returning, but the offense is working with the bottom of their depth chart at receiver. The Raiders secondary is just awful, giving up a league high 25 DKPts on average to the position. With such a low price, you leave yourself plenty of money to use elsewhere.
