DFS Matchup Report: NFL Week 8

NFL DFS Week 9

Club Fantasy’s Weekly DFS Report is here to help you build your DFS lineups. Each week, we will list the ten teams that give up the most points to QB/RB/WR/TE and the five that give up the fewest. While this shouldn’t be the only info you use when building your lineups, it is an excellent starting point. Here are the matchups to target or avoid in NFL DFS Week 8.
