Fantasy Football Week 8 Player Rankings

The Week 8 Rankings have been updated. Click to view.

Here is attempt #1, with updates to come as the week progresses.

Fantasy Football Week 8 Rankings

Note: The Falcons, Ravens, Bears, Browns, Giants, Eagles are on bye, and thus players from these teams are not ranked.

Remember, these rankings are general. They are a guide for how I view players in relationship to one another, but could and would vary based on your league’s scoring settings. Also, the specifics of your roster could dictate whether one player plays over another. So use this is as a guide and feel free to ask specific questions below.

And a lot can still change between now and Sunday. I will update these rankings at least once between now and kickoff, probably twice. Follow us on Twitter for all the latest player updates and late breaking fantasy-relevant news.

  11. Good post right here. One thing I would like to say is most professional fields consider the Bachelor Degree just as the entry level requirement for an online certification. Although Associate Degrees are a great way to start out, completing a person’s Bachelors starts up many entrances to various occupations, there are numerous internet Bachelor Course Programs available through institutions like The University of Phoenix, Intercontinental University Online and Kaplan. Another issue is that many brick and mortar institutions give Online variations of their certifications but normally for a substantially higher amount of money than the firms that specialize in online college diploma plans.
