When it comes to successful DraftKings NFL DFS picks, using the top QB-WR stacks on a given slate can be very beneficial for the potential success of your lineup. For example, every time your top quarterback completes a pass to his top wide receiver, and you stacked those two in your DFS lineup –– BOOM! You’re getting double the fantasy football value!
So, let’s dive into Week 8 of the NFL season and discuss which QB-WR stacks and DraftKings NFL DFS picks are worth rostering for this week’s Fantasy Football Millionaire DFS contest. Buckle up for a huge slate of options because there are zero teams on bye this week.

Best DraftKings NFL DFS Stacks at QB-WR for Week 8
Lamar Jackson ($8,100) and Zay Flowers ($5,600) vs. Cardinals | NFL DFS Picks
Lamar Jackson exploded for a 37.88 DKFP performance in Week 7 against the Lions but only attempted passes. Still, he completed 21 of them for 357 yards and three touchdowns –– four of which went to Zay Flowers for 75 yards, his second-highest yardage output of the season. This duo has been clicking since Flowers’ NFL debut in Week 1 with Jackson looking his way at least 10 times in three separate weeks thus far.
After back-to-back sluggish weeks, Jackson proved why he’s a top fantasy QB with his 37-point explosion and it will almost certainly continue against a Cardinals’ defense that ranks 31st in defensive DVOA (20.4%). Arizona has allowed the fifth-most fantasy points to opposing QBs (136.9) and the third-most to opposing wide receivers (282.8). Factor in how the Cardinals have played to the level of their opponents this season and the game script could force more points. Do I need to say more?

Trevor Lawrence ($6,200) and Christian Kirk ($5,900) vs. Steelers | NFL DFS Picks
There’s a good chance Trevor Lawrence and the Jaguars’ pass-catchers are popular across lineups on Sunday but his questionable tag may scare some, at least. It’s worth noting that he was limited in practice but that really should not mean anything because, in last week’s game, his scrambling ability was on full display. Jacksonville is sneaky good this season and Christian Kirk has been a big part of it, as Calvin Ridley has really only produced two or three viable games. Kirk, however, hasn’t produced fewer than 13.0 DKFP nor garnered fewer targets than six since his Week 1 dud. Yeah, he’s really the WR1, not Ridley.
This stack also may not be super popular simply because Lawrence hasn’t produced more than 21.0 DKFP in a single game this season. While the Steelers’ pass rush could very easily give him issues, the run game could help alleviate that. Also, Pittsburgh’s secondary has its weaknesses and has allowed the eighth-most passing yards per game (241.2). I also expect this game to be competitive, which makes for an even game script featuring lots of Lawrence-to-Kirk plays.
After reading about the best DraftKings NFL DFS stacks for Week 8, check out our fantasy football streamer articles! In the one above, we discuss QB streamers, which include Washington’s Sam Howell.
Sam Howell ($5,200) and Terry McLaurin ($5,300) vs. Eagles | NFL DFS Picks
The injuries to the QBs around the league make finding value plays difficult but why not just roll with Sam Howell yet again? Howell’s tied for the third-most pass attempts (256) and has looked Terry McLaurin’s way at least nine times in three of the last four games. As a result, McLaurin posted at least 14 DKFP in that span. The last time Washington faced Philadelphia back in Week 4, McLaurin hauled in 8-of-10 targets for 86 yards and Howell posted 19.6 DKFP.
As good as the Eagles pass rush is, its secondary has struggled mightily –– allowing the most fantasy points by a 13-point margin to opposing wide receivers this season (297.5). McLaurin and other Washington pass-catchers should be able to produce solid fantasy outputs, especially if Howell can throw for 290+ yards again as he did in Week 4. The game ended 34-31, in the Eagles’ favor and while I am expecting a more divisional grind-it-out game, Howell’s going to throw the ball a ton and let’s hope it goes similarly to Week 4.
