Fantasy Knowledge: Week 8
Grip It and Rip It
Philip Rivers - A great matchup and this offense is firing.
Chris Johnson - The vet continues to crush it and is looking at a tasty matchup with Cleveland.
Stefon Diggs - A star in the making, start with confidence as a borderline WR1.
Ladarius Green - See Rivers, P and it's looking like Gates is not gonna go.
St. Louis Rams D - The savages on the Rams D Line are looking at a pitiful 49’ers offense and licking their chops.
Ride the Pine
Russell Wilson - Struggling as of late and facing a surprisingly stout Dallas D with a chip on its shoulder.
Eddie Lacy - Injury issues, looking at a tough matchup and then a bye week for this pass-happy offense, doesn’t look good for Lacy.
Antonio Gates - Injury is questionable, not worth the risk if you can grab Ladarius Green off waviers.
Don't Sleep on these Sleepers
Teddy Bridgewater - Continuing to find a great rhythm with Diggs and putting up numbers to match. A solid bye week spot start or stream.
Dontae Moncrief - Getting a surprising amount of looks and Hilton is playing like a highschool freshman.
Darren McFadden - Obviously high risk/high reward with RunDMC but we're placing our money down now.
Wavier Wire Studs
Marvin Jones - Still available in most leagues, this strong WR2 is getting a ton of love from this offense.
Jay Cutler - Hate all you want but with Jeffery back, Cutler is worth a start if you’re streaming qb’s.
Davante Adams - Might take a week to shake off the injury rust but he’ll slide right back into a must-start role quickly.
Willie Snead - If you’re not on the Snead bus already, get on it.
Alfred Blue - RIP Arian Foster, hello Alfred Blue. Strong games ahead, you're my boy Blue!
Ben Watson - Continues to defy the odds and produce in the Saint’s offense. Grab him if you're TE starved.
All About The Numbers
DeAndre Hopkins - Now the most targeted receiver in fantasy history.
Green Bay’s offense - Now running a 3 wideout set 95+% of the time.
