DraftKings: Main Slate GPP Tournament Plays for Week 8
Russell Wilson ($7,200) is strictly a GPP play for me on DraftKings this week, priced all the way up to $7,200. He should smash against an Atlanta defense that ranks at or near the bottom of the league in just about every meaningful defensive statistic. The issue here is Atlanta’s ability to stay in this game, which is highly correlated with the health of Matt Ryan, who left in the second half of Week 7 with an ankle injury. While the Seahawks have some problems in the secondary, they do a good job of putting pressure on opposing quarterbacks, which is less than ideal given the Falcons porous offensive line. With Matt Schaub under center, it’s unlikely that the Falcons can hang offensively, and even with a limited Ryan, you need Atlanta to put up an offensive showing in order to force Wilson into the kind of game script his price tag requires.
