Fantasy Football 2017: Week 8 Rankings

With Bye Week Hell officially here, setting the perfect lineup is both more difficult and more important than ever. Let us guide you with our 2017 Fantasy Football Week 8 Rankings.

You’ve stocked up on the non perishables.  Your closet is overflowing with water bottles, flashlights, and candles. Hell, that fruit dehydrator from grandma from three birthdays ago is finally seeing use. Yet, all the preparation and warnings seem never enough to prepare you: Bye Week Hell is no longer coming. It’s here.

Hibernating for the week are your Cardinals, Packers, Jaguars, Rams, Giants, and Titans. Granted, the only true studs off the table are workhorse backs Todd Gurley and Leonard Fournette, while injuries to Aaron RodgersCarson Palmer, and Odell Beckham have limited the appeal of their respective teammates.

With such fewer options to choose from, setting the right lineup is all the more imperative. The Roto Street Journal and Wolf are here to help with all your needs. As we always preface:

Scoring Reminder: These rankings are based on 1/2 PPR, 4 Pt Passing TD Scoring.

Sit / Start Help: If you have any specific lineup questions, please let me know. While rankings are helpful, many factors are at play that can make a lower-ranked player more appealing to start. For example, you may be an underdog, and starting a “boom-or-bust” player is more recommendable versus a sure 7 or 8 points.
