Week 8 in the NFL season is official here. If you are 1-6 or 2-5, it’s basically a must-win game this week. If you are 6-1 or 5-2, a victory can strengthen a playoff place. The only safe way to win your Week 8 Fantasy Football matchup is to find players with matchups you can avail. The easiest way to see which recipients to start, which quarterbacks to sit and what rides are going to surprise are to use the proven Week 8 Fantasy Football rankings like those found on SportsLine.
In terms of ranking players, their advanced computer model, human experts in Fantasy football hit last season when there were major differences in ranking. And the model was closest to the hole’s overall, meaning it was best decided where each player would finish each week. During a season, it could literally be the difference between winning your league or going home emptyhand.
Last week, the model was extremely high at Broncos recipient Emmanuel Sanders and said he would be the top 1
2 recipient. The result: Sanders exploded for 102 receiving laps and one touchdown and also had an appropriate score. Everyone who had him in his show was well on his way to a week 7 victory.
Now the model, which simulates every game 10,000 times, has revealed its last week 8 Fantasy Football rankings. A player like it loves this week: Seahawk’s wide recipient Tyler Lockett.
Lockett has been the most productive Fantasy receiver in Seattle this season. In fact, he is averaged over 15 meters per reception and has found the final zone in five of his last six matches. And he gets a dream matchup this week against the lions, who were illuminated for 442 meters and three touchdowns in week 5 against Packers.
Dolphins Michael Roberts scored twice against Lions last week. Davante Adams posted a 9-140-1 state line to Detroit two weeks ago. Start Lockett with confidence and check the score down.
And a massive shock: Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz strikes big-time a week against Jaguars and finishes off the top 15 quarterbacks. He is a player to the bench in week 8.
Wentz goes into week 8 thrown for over 300 meters and at least two touchdowns in three of his previous four games. However, he will meet a Jaguars team who boasts the best passing defense in NFL. In fact, Jacksonville’s stingy defense holds its opponents to under 180 passes per game.
The model also requires a surprising quarterback you do not even want to finish in the top five rankings. This picking can be the difference between winning big and going home with nothing.
So who are you going to sit and start a week? Visit SportsLine now to get Week 8 Fantasy Football’s rankings for each position, plus see which QB will come out nowhere to break the top 5, all from the model performed by experts big time last season.
