24 Oct Fantasy Football Rankings – Week 8
Fantasy Football Rankings – Week 8
Week 7 proved to be the proverbial wall that all fantasy owners hit. Shock, dismay, or joy, depending what side of the fence you were on. I think that’s why you come here to check out my weekly rankings, which is why I hope to get it as right as can be. Week 7 saw this column finish as the 25th best in the industry, or at least of the 145 participating via the Fantasy Pros Accuracy Challenge, and that paces us at 25th on the season long as well. The strengths have been at Running Back (13th on season), Wide Receiver (26th), and IDP, which doesn’t show the season total, but has seen weekly finishes of 7-9-n/a-3-9-3-2. It was that Week 3 n/a that is prohibiting the season total from showing, but the cumulative average seems to be 4.71. Chase Edmonds may or may not have been a surprise to you, but surely Zach Pascal and Alex Erickson were. If you missed my article last month on Ty Johnson (Ty Johnson Spotlight), may sure you go back and read it! He is poised to get the first crack at the Kerryon Johnson role (whatever that is), now that Kerryon has hit the Injured Reserve. Some players I am higher on this week than others include: Kyler Murray, James Conner, Ty Johnson, Tarik Cohen, Kenny Golladay, John Brown, and Darren Waller. Take a look at the list to see others, as well as players I am lower on.
That’s really all I have this week. Below, you will find my up-to-the-minute fantasy football rankings for Week 8. Use them to answer your own ‘start or sit’ questions. I rank every player at every position, including IDP. There are options for PPR or Standard leagues, as well, and the default is Half PPR. I try to make it as easy as possible, so hopefully all of your questions are answered. If not, find me on twitter @PeoplezPen.
PLEASE make sure to take a look at our NFL (and College) Databases! They are extremely helpful tools, and dirt cheap at just $15 for a full year. You can find a link to them below. They seriously are a must have if you are looking for an advantage in your leagues. Best of luck in Week 8!
