Safe Options – Week 8 DraftKings Lineup Picks
Ty Montgomery $5,300:
Hard to believe Montgomery is listed as a safe play but at his recent usage rate and price it’s hard not to. Green Bay is in the same dire RB situation as they were last week when Montgomery rushed for 60 yards and caught 10 passes.
His versatility lining up as both RB and WR affords him unique opportunity for volume other players can’t touch. Atlanta is the favorite, but they allow almost as many points per game as they score. They also rank fourth in fantasy points allowed to QB and sixth to running backs, suggesting the Packers will be able to move the ball through Montgomery in a variety of ways.
Devonta Freeman $6,500: I think we all want as many pieces of this game as we can get in Week 8 DFS. With Tevin Coleman looking somewhere between questionable and doubtful to play Sunday, Freeman would be in line to pick up the slack, and frankly, he’s been valuable without the extra work.
I like him if Coleman is active, love him if Coleman is out. If you’re worried about the Packers defense, remember that Ezekiel Elliott was fine against them, and that their great defensive ranking against the run comes mainly against less talented backs/teams.
