Week 8 DraftKings Tournament Picks

By Tyler Siracuse 12:10pm EDT 10/29/20


QB

Jimmy Garoppolo ($5,400)

Jimmy rarely has ceiling games. He doesn’t use his legs and usually doesn’t have a lot of passing attempts with the 49ers traditionally having a strong defense and running game.

In this game, I expect Garoppolo to have to throw a lot going up against the elite Seattle offense as 3-point underdogs without their top RBs Raheem Mostert, Jeff Wilson and potentially Tevin Coleman.

Kyle Shanahan is a smart coach and obviously the weakness of Seattle is their historically bad pass defense, which has given up by far the most yards in the league. That includes almost 400 to Cam Newton, who hasn’t been able to do anything since.

Garoppolo should be able to get the 300+ yard bonus — and if he throws a couple TDs he’ll easily achieve value at just $5,400 on DK this week.

I will be looking to roster Jimmy in at least 15-20% of my Week 8 DK lineups. He has easy stack options this week in Brandon Aiyuk and George Kittle.
