Fantasy Football: Steve's Week 8 FanDuel Lineup

Trying to find some players that won't have high usage numbers in tournaments this week.

Watch FanDuel Fantasy Focus for the latest advice! Fridays at 3pm

INDIANAPOLIS ---  If you need some salary relief this week with RBs getting more and more expensive, consider Frank Gore. The Panthers are in the bottom half on the league stopping the run, Gore is a bellcow, and the Colts have said all week they want to get him more involved.

Big Ben is back, which means Antonio Brown is back too as a top-3 fantasy WR. Brown was the #1 scoring flex player in PPR leagues last season and continued that with Big Ben earlier this season before he got hurt. Hopefully a match-up with the unbeaten Bengals will keep their usage low in tournaments.

The Ravens get a West Coast team coming cross country for an early game that isn't good against the run. Justin Forsett should get a big workload.

John Brown is dealing with a hamstring issue for the Cardinals, which should mean even more targets for Larry Fitzgerald in a great match-up. Don't let his quiet couple of weeks scare you off, like they will the rest of the crowd in your tournaments.

My biggest wild card pick this week is Tavon Austin, and I'm pairing him with the Rams D in hopes of getting double points if Austin has a return for a touchdown on special teams.

Tyler Eifert is probably the safest play among tight ends this week.
