Week 8 of the NFL season brings as a strong set of 10 games on the Sunday Main Slate. There should be plenty of offense, as usual, this season but it is a defense that is the most recommended play amongst all of the DFS experts picks for the week. The rest of the positions are much more open to interpretation as even some of the options that slip into our GPP buckets are probably Cash game viable.
In this series, we will publish a consensus of NFL DFS expert’s recommendations that take into account each expert’s current DailyOverlay score to generate a Weighted Consensus ranking for each position. To calculate the Weighted Rank Score, each expert’s DailyOverlay score is weighted on a sliding scale from 1 to 5 with the top expert in the current standings being weighted with a five while the last place expert is weighted with a one. If you have ever wondered how to differentiate between two players who were both selected by the same number of experts, then this is the list you need. We also list the projected Ownership Percentages for Cash and GPP leagues to help you identify some players that could be good low-owned contrarian plays. We will include all players that were recommended by at least two experts.
