Bottom of the Barrel Week 8 Quarterback NFL DFS Breakdown

Chris Robin 10/26/2022

From a seasonal perspective we are at the half-way point of the fantasy season! Shocking, yes, but another hurdle jumped over when we play daily fantasy sports! The summer has turned into fall, and we are on the cusp of Halloween! What is your favorite scary movie? If you’re like me, you read that in the Scream Ghostface voice. This is no secret, but I am partial to Michael Myers and the original Halloween movies. I am aware we all have our own likes and dislikes.

DFS is best suited for folks willing to take a risk. DFS is also a game of chance & I find it to be enjoyable from a strategic perspective. Do not let anyone tell you, EVER, that your ideas stink. Realistically, that is all we have. A game where our daydreams can pay dividends!

Let’s look at some Week 8 Bottom of the Barrel plays!

I’ll get into all the details after a quick note about our new membership options! 😺


Jalen Hurts PHI vs. PIT(24th)(FD-$9,200)(DK-$8,300)(Y!-$39)

Fresh off their bye week I am expecting the Eagles to absolutely hammer the Steelers. Also, to score 30+ points. Hurts is a great choice at quarterback this week but also the most expensive. Build some lines with Jalen then indulge the rest of the article!

As we look ahead to the quarterback position you will notice a few horrendous and startling QB’s in Bottom of the Barrel. In comparison the Halloween III: Season of the Witch. Let’s just follow the value and matchups here at B&B! With it being Week 8, keep an eye on it!

Daniel Jones NYG @ SEA(22nd)(FD-$7,500)(DK-$5,700)(Y!-$27)

Holy smokes! Oh, Danny Boy has been productive and in turn the Giants are 6-1! Who saw that one coming? As wild as it sounds most of DJ’s value is linked to his rushing yards. So far so good! The Giants head to Seattle on Sunday and the Seahawks have been allowing plenty of points to opposing quarterbacks! Geno vs. Jones a premier match-up in Week 8 of the 2022 NFL season.

Andy Dalton NO vs. LV(32nd)(FD-$7,100)(DK-$5,500)(Y!-$26)

You must have known I was going to go there again this week. Fresh off his four touchdowns and three interceptions Thursday Night Football performance Andy gets another beautiful DvP match-up against the Raiders. Come to find out in DFS scoring formats it doesn’t matter if you throw back-to-back pick 6’s if you throw an equal amount, or more, touchdowns. In all honesty, I think Andy is good for 220 passing yards and two touchdown passes, as a floor. Was also just shared that Andy Dalton will be the starting QB Sunday against the Raiders.

Davis Mills HOU vs. TEN(25th)(FD-$6,500)(DK-$5,200)(Y!-$23)

The knock-on Mills is his touchdown to turnover rate. When it comes to DFS that doesn’t matter. Pick an opposing team bad at defending the position and we run with it. The Titans are 4-2 and in first place in the AFC South while the Texans are 1-4-1 and in last place in the same division. This game has all the makings of an over given how it sits at 40.5 points. The Titans are going to run Derrick Henry down the Texans’ throats while Mills and the offense will be slinging it trying to keep pace. The floor and ceiling with this kid are run of the mill but the Titans have been bad trying to defend opposing quarterback on a per-drop back basis.

Sam Ehlinger IND vs. WSH(23rd)(FD-$6,000)(DK-$4,000)(Y!-$20)

Well, I am bummed the Colts decided to bench Matt Ryan, but such is life in the NFL. One week you’re on top of the world and the next you’re getting paid 20+ million guaranteed dollars. When we look at Sam it is a curious case. Sam has appeared in three NFL games in 2021, throwing no passes and rushing three times for nine yards. The Colts have an issue with their offensive line but maybe the younger QB, Sam, will be able to take each play and each rush as it comes. Look for Ehlinger to target the RBs and TEs a lot more than Matt Ryan as a safety blanket type of move. Twenty completions, 240 yards, four to five carries, twenty-five yards, and a pair of touchdowns are well within reach.

That it is! Bottom of the Barrel for Week 8 of the NFL season!
