Week 8 FanDuel Tournament Picks


Kyler Murray, Cardinals ($8,200) at Vikings

Projected ownership: 9%

Murray made the cash game article, and I think there’s enough upside here for tournaments. He ranks #2 in raw projection on this slate.

He provides a high floor because of his rushing upside, and if the TDs start coming, he could really pop. His current TD rate is 2.5% — almost 2 percentage points below his career average. Last week at least showed some overall improvement, which coincided with the return of DeAndre Hopkins.

Arizona also enters the weekend ranking 2nd in plays per game (70.3).

The Vikings matchup isn’t an issue, either. They sit 31st in Pro Football Focus’ coverage grades.

If Kyler (and a stack with DeAndre Hopkins) is too expensive for your build, I’d drop down to a discounted Dak Prescott ($7,200) at home against Chicago. He’s easily stackable with CeeDee Lamb — and if you want to fade Tony Pollard on some teams, the duo will provide adequate leverage.
