Week 8 Thursday Night Showdown DFS Primer (Packers at Cardinals) PREMIUM
Week 8 kicks off with a showdown of elite NFC teams. Unfortunately, a few notable players are likely to be sidelined because of the COVID-19 protocols. Further, another star might be sidelined because of injury. Thus, there are many moving parts, and I analyze both teams with the fluid situation in mind.
Game: Green Bay Packers at Arizona Cardinals
Spread: ARI -6.5 Points
Over/Under: 50.5 Points
Packers Analysis: Green Bay's offense has been thrown a loop this week. Davante Adams and Allen Lazard are on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Lazard will miss this game, and the timing of playing on Thursday presents a challenge for Adams providing the requisite two negative tests separated by 24 hours to play this week. Still, if Adams suits up, he's a fabulous play. So, I included him in the team's table.
