What techniques and settings help you get eyes in focus fast while shooting a model who is moving moderately? Assume a camera without eye detection (Nikon D850)?

Thanks...

I would try AF-C Group AF with the cluster on the head/face.  Also if the whole body is within the depth of field you could also use AF-C D9 as it would be difficult to track head/face with AF-C single point depending on how fast they are moving.  Unless the depth of field is razor thin this should be a relatively easy task in either mode.
