Fantasy Football Ranking Week 8: Slipper, Start, Sit

Have a happy Halloween week everyone. Hope everything for the fantasy team is not in vain. As always, you’ve come to the right place for Week 8 Fantasy Football standings and predictions, but this week we are clearly having some fun rankings. Best Halloween Candy Ranking! Either you hate me for not liking your favorite food, or you realize that I’ve just opened up your world to the glory of a candy you’ve never tried, or… hate all living trash that’s just candy corn Join me in unison. #CheckTheLink- Age Waiver | True SOS (APA — Wednesday Update)Fantasy Football 101 (Start, Sit, Deal, etc.)All in Football (Video Pod)2022 Week 8 Fantasy Football Sleepers🚨 HEADS UP 🚨 These are slippers. They will not imitate my ranking 100%. This chases the uptrend and often involves more risk. QUARTERBACKPOSSIBLY START: Daniel Jones, NYG — This is what the Daniel Jones managers have been hoping for in the draft over the past two years because Jones plays often. Not only are the Seahawks’ defense weak overall, they are one of the worst teams to block runs, and have proven to be a running back success. And… Kyler Murray hit 100 RBIs last week. HAIL MARY START: Jared Goff, DET — Yes, I know Goff was here because he was indoors last week despite a tough match. But this week, Goff faces opponents who have allowed two or more touchdowns 1) indoors, 2) at home and 3) in defense of the Dolphins. With Mac Jones, Kenny Pickett and Zach Wilson there were no or only one touchdowns in four games. Tie straps for a potentially painful ride. Backpossible Start: Michael Carter, NYJ — This may seem obvious, but I see a lot of people worrying about the James Robinson trade. Yes, Robinson’s arrival is likely to lead to a somewhat similar timeshare to Breece Hall and Carter earlier this year, but more worrisome after this week. As we saw with Denver’s Latavius ​​​​​Murray and Christian McCaffrey last week, it takes a game (or two) on the running back to confirm his true role in the new team. The Patriots are great for running, but not scary. A day like Khalil Herbert would put Carter in the top 20. HAIL MARY START: Jamaal Williams, DET — When D’Andre Swift returns. Because Swift is out, it’s too clear to start Williams. Even with Swift’s return, Williams is still in the top 20 of its time slot given this matchup. After week three, the Dolphins did little to block their opponents, including running backs. Devin Singletary (19.6), Joe Mixon (15.4), Breece Hall (26.7), Michael Carter (16.3) and Dalvin Cook (14.8) all made the top 15 (two jets in the same game). Najee Harris also had a great day with 9.5 points last week. WIDE RECEIVERPOSSIBLY START: Brandin Cooks, HOU — Things didn’t go as planned for the Cooks this year as they are no longer quarterback immunity. Mills’ drop in play ruined the passing game, but there’s some hope in Week 8… Assuming Cooks isn’t traded. As evidenced by last week’s match against Parris Campbell, the Titans are one of the most generous matchups. The Commanders trio did pretty well a week ago and I hope the Cooks don’t run out of sight with a lot of targets and breaking one for the big play.POSSIBLY START: DJ Moore, CAR — PJ Walker isn’t a massive upgrade for Moore, but Christian McCaffrey goes out This helps when Moore sees a huge amount of targets when he’s on and doesn’t have Robbie Anderson to boot. As we saw last week, Moore could see 10 targets and make it 7-69-1. The Falcons pass defense is the worst and the lowest score a receiver with 10 or more goals has is 12.1. That means he’s in the top 25 for any given week. HAIL MARY START: Parris Campbell, IND — Speaking of Campbell, he starts off with some interesting pickups and risky plays given that we know little about how Sam Ehlinger will play. Ehlinger has the following Jacoby Brissett resemblance from my NFL draft scouting report: Some of his problems are that he’s too aggressive in trying to play and is locked into his ‘hope and pray’ option, which will force the defense to read his mind. He is firm in the running game and is not shy about the pressure… But he doesn’t always feel it. Ehlinger can go with a mistakenly covered backup in one series that looks like a star.” But, as we know, the Commander defense can be very exploitable and Ehlinger wants to be as locked into Campbell as Matt Ryan. It’s a scary situation. TIGHT ENDHAIL MARY START: Irv Smith, MIN — Start a tight end against the Seahawks and Cardinals. The Vikings scored to get the Cardinals, whose worst opposing tight end scored 4.9 points. That’s Tommy Tremble. Juwan Johnson scored twice last week, but Noah Fant had a 7.5 in week 6. Fun with Rankings! This week is all about Halloween. It’s time to update our Halloween candy rankings with a separate list of small best candies that aren’t funny sizes. Of course, there are also the worst candy options! Trick or Treat!Best Halloween Candy Ranked Nerds Gummy Clusters (Once you try it… you’re welcome) Reese’s Peanut Butter Pumpkins (King of Chocolate Candy) Peanut Butter M&Ms (Plain M&M’s out Top 10) Sour Patch Watermelon Slice Twizzlers Snickers Starburst FaveREDs – Luck If you like this, 2 packs of strawberries! Laffy Taffy (strawberry, watermelon) — If the wrapper peeled off easily, it would have ranked higher. Haribo Gold Bears (only gummi bears allowed…not Disney products) Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups Take 5 Swedish Fish Minis Airheads (Strawberry, Watermelon, Mystery) Junior Mints (very refreshing) Sour Patch Kids Twix 100 Grand — Great but Take 5… I think it’s one step higher. Butterfinger (fresh/soft — lost a few spots for new recipes) York Peppermint (any variety, all good) Skittles Nestle Crunch Hot Tamales Kit Kat – Overrated, I forgot at first… you can eat 20 As if nothing… Really good but really dissatisfied Milky Way Blow Pop Overrated: Whoppers – Who Want to bite your teeth into these plain malt balls? And Tootsie Rolls – everyone gives this out and the kids end up getting half the bag. Enough! Best Candy Needs Resizing for Halloween Starburst FaveREDs Minis (So Dangerous You Can Kill Your Bag Without Thinking) Sour Patch Strawberry Slices Twizzlers Rainbow Sour Belts (Strawberry, Watermelon, Blue Raspberry) Hi-Chew Strawberry (another spin on Starbursts) ) Worst Halloween Candy (ranked from worst to worst) Necco wafers — people don’t even know where to find these. Are we sure it’s not street chalk? Candy Cone — Obviously, Too Easy Circus Peanuts — I mean… Orange Styrofoam Who? Good & Plenty – Even the taste?! These are hell in boxes. Bit-O-Honey Mary Jane Generic Wrapped Candy — You know… Black/orange wrapper Smarties — At least the Tootsie Rolls are good for a while. These are hardly any better than the Neccos and everyone has them! (Canadian reader note: Jake is referring to American Smarties, which is completely different from Canadian ones.) Dubble Bubble — Baseball card gum isn’t that hard… and the taste is gone in 60 seconds. Jolly Rancher — Talking about cracks teeth… Bigger (smaller is ok). I bite, so maybe it’s just me, but speaking of hard candy, this will break your teeth in no time! BUYS AND SELLSBuys Buccaneers — The Ravens matchup puts Tom Brady, Mike Evans and Chris Godwin, especially Brady and Godwin, on track. Alvin Kamara, RB, NO — As noted in the waiver… Top 25 total yards, top 20 touches, top 10 receptions, top 5 running backs receiving yards… despite missing two games. Cordarrelle Patterson, RB, ATL — His return is nearing, and Falcons is having trouble running regardless of this game script. Keenan Allen, WR, LAC — Allen isn’t 100% yet, but it’s close, and he could still be in the top 15. Specifically, Mike Williams is excluded. Diontae Johnson, WR, PIT—Another worry reporter. Johnson is still Pittsburgh’s top target and once he starts grabbing 65-70% of the target, Johnson could return to WR2 status. Dalton Schultz, TE, DAL — It may not be 100% and there is no turning back, but Dak Prescott likes him quite a bit and Schultz was a Top 5 tight end with him last year. Selling Travis Etienne, RB, JAX. — Yes, Etienne is keeping RB1 for the rest of the season. But seeing people claiming he will outperform Austin Ekeler for the rest of the time can maximize his potential return… NOW! Gus Edwards, RB, BAL — See if you can get the top 15 worth of Edwards names like Etienne. If so, you cannot ignore that return. Aaron Jones, RB, GB — Just a week ago, managers were panicking, and now that Jones has their second biggest game of the season (four games under 9.1), cognitive value has risen again. James Robinson and Michael Carter, NYJ — If you can make it into the top 15 for either one (there are many different opinions), you should sell. Deebo Samuel, WR, SF — Some may not have noticed the concern, but Samuel was already barely in a hurry and now CMC is ruining his potential for WR1 value. Week 8 Fantasy Football Prediction 🚨 HEADS UP 🚨 This may be different from my ranking and my ranking is “I need the highest rise, even at risk.” Also added on thursday based on 4 TD for QB, 6 break and half-PPD download link***not updated on Sunday morning***week 8 fantasy football standings🚨 HEADS UP 🚨 Half-PPR only This is because FantasyPros can turn off the automatic calculation of No and Full-PPR rankings. However, there is very little difference between Non to Half and Full to Half, so there is no need to worry. ECR = Expert consensus ranking. Not all experts update consistently/constantly, so don’t focus too much. It’s updated regularly, so check all the way up to the lineup lock. (Photo: Justin Casterline/Getty Images)
