NFLWeek 8 Touchdown Picks
is now the feature back — and likely feature player — for the Seattle Seahawks. Many pundits had the Seahawks dead and buried before the season started. Yet, continues to impress as a replacement for Mr. Very Limited as the Seahawks continue to compete each week.
Against the Giants, I anticipate the Seahawks will continue to pound the work to put Geno in favorable passing situations. With likely out with his knee injury, we should expect the Seahawks to run as much as possible.
There are some very interesting running back situations on this week’s NFL slate but I feel very confident that Walker finds the endzone against the Giants’ defense.

returned this past Thursday night and boy was he fed against the Saints. While the Saints played without Marshon Lattimore, Hopkins seemed to be the key to the Cardinals’ offense.
Hopkins was targeted 14 times against New Orleans — catching 10 passes for 100+ yards. He did not find the endzone but will very much be the top target for this week as the Cardinals remain without . We roll with Hopkins in what is now an interesting matchup on the road versus the Vikings in a dome.
At the time of this writing, there are no lines for anytime touchdown scorers.
Lastly, we return to the wasteland. No . No . We don’t even have a or . Gross.
I am just going to chase a matchup this week. The Lions’ defense is horrendous. Miami will look to make a ton of big plays against the swiss cheese Detroit defense in a dome. Gesicki sees plenty of competition for targets but leads the Dolphins with six red zone targets. This’ll do.
Caesars Sportsbook offers a +285 price tag for Gesicki to find the endzone.
