  • Read below to find out the best NFL DFS WR picks for the 50K Sunday Smash contest

Welcome to Week 8 NFL DFS at OwnersBox! Week 7 was a painful ride for me, and I’m sure I was not alone. Being heavy on Amon-Ra and DK Metcalf turned out to be one of those spots in Daily Fantasy where your day is simply over before it really starts due to unfortunate injuries. It was a disheartening reminder of why we practice proper bankroll management and don’t play more than we can afford to lose in a given week.

The great part of DFS is that there is always tomorrow, always next Sunday, and always another slate to get back on track. We will look to do just that this week in the OwnersBox 50K Sunday Smash. Let’s dive into some wide receiver plays that will help bring your teams to the top of the leaderboard Sunday.

NFL DFS WR Week 8 Picks

Player Salary Opponent
Wan’Dale Robinson $4,600 SEA
Parris Campbell $4,300 WAS
DeAndre Hopkins $6,300 MIN

DFS Wide Receiver #1 – Wan’Dale Robinson – $4,600

We had a somewhat big trade yesterday, with Kadarius Toney being shipped off to KC where he may actually get a chance to showcase his extremely high skillset in a high powered offense. I’m sure Toney was thrilled, but I’m sure Wan’Dale Robinson was more than thrilled. This indicates the Giants are pushing their chips to the middle in favor of Robinson, and the last few weeks suggest his stock is on the rise.

Robinson is coming off a 6/50 game last week on 8 targets, coming directly after his 3/37/1 game in week 6. We have to assume he is a full go at this point after playing 69% of the snaps last week after just 16 snaps in week 6 coming off the injury. I think he is the guy in New York, and with his current OwnersBox price at 4.6k, the opportunity cost and upside certainly look good here. Remember, my approach is almost always playing 2 QB’s in every lineup, so finding these guys in the mid 4k price range is something I try to make a focal point for my lineups. I’ll be rolling out plenty Wan’Dale this week, and I think this is the breakout game. $4,600 WR1 with 20+ upside, sign me up.

DFS Wide Receiver #2 – Parris Campbell – $4,300

As mentioned above, I really make it a focal point of my weekly strategy to find these guys in the 4k range with tournament winning upside. This feels like chasing here coming off of 2 big games, but Parris Campbell is a volume machine as of late. Seeing 11 and 12 targets in his last two games, Campbell was able to convert 17 of these 23 targets for 127 yards and two touchdowns. That certainly looks like the volume and upside I want for a $4,300 player, and for that reason, Campbell will be jammed into many of my teams this weekend.

Michael Pittman’s numbers have taken a dip, and Campbell has been the main beneficiary. With defenses focusing on Pittman, Campbell has quietly stepped into a clear WR2 position over Alex Pierce on a somewhat pass heavy Colts team. Jonathan Taylor owners (myself included) are in shambles, seeing their 1.1 draft pick in season long leagues do essentially nothing all season between injury and just being ineffective. If the Colts continue to be trailing games and airing it out, expect Campbell to continue to be heavily involved, as he has now proven he has the upside required to get us to the top. The Commanders have allowed 31 PPR points per game to the WR position this year, good for 25th in the NFL, so the matchup checks out, too. Let’s aim for a third straight high volume this game for the emerging wide receiver.

DFS Wide Receiver #3 – DeAndre Hopkins – $6,300

D Hop is back, and didn’t miss a step in his return last week. 14 Targets. 10 Receptions. 103 Yards. That seems about right for a player of his caliber, and he was a TD away from completely crushing last week. The instant volume is extremely encouraging, and I don’t see a way in which Hopkins is not once again the focal point of Arizona’s offense. Kyler clearly looks his way often, so this is a pretty easy plug and play type of spot here as long as Arizona can move the ball.

I love pairing Hopkins up with Kyler, too. We have seen Kyler’s tournament winning upside many times in the past, but not so much this year. I think this week might be the spot, with his full arsenal of weapons back at his disposal. Hopkins is a high floor, high ceiling option this week that should come in with modest ownership on a site like OwnersBox where many are paying up for QB’s and RB’s. I’ll be locking in on the Murray/Hopkins stack this week and hope to see some of you near me at the top!

As always, any questions, feel free to hit me up on Twitter @seanmcleann – Good Luck in Week 8!
