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.
