Fantasy Football Week 8 Player Rankings

The fantasy analysts here at Midwest Sports Fans have been invited to compete in the Fantasy Football Crystal Ball accuracy ranking challenge. I have volunteered to tackle the weekly task of doing our week-specific rankings. (Jon will still chime in periodically with his rest-of-season rankings, and we’ll still post the consensus rankings from Play This Guy as well.)

If you all would prefer more than just a list, let me know and I can spice it up a bit!

Here are my Week 8 player rankings. Hope they help!

Post any questions in the comment section and I will be happy to answer. You can also ask on Twitter (@onceharby and @FantasyMSF), and come to the Sunday live chat for any last minute start/sit questions you have.
