Fantasy Knowledge: Week 8

We’re nearing crunch time gents. We’re halfway through the season and every point, roster move, and touchdown counts. Whether you’re punching your way out of the bottom of your league or pushing towards the playoffs we’ve got you covered on every move you need to make for 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.
