Another solid week and we’re about to break into the top-20 for the year, a place we’ve been working hard to return to over the last few weeks, much like your mother’s house. Quarterbacks specifically showed a marked improvement in Week 7, but some lackluster results for running backs and tight ends overshadowed our success ranking wide receivers. With that said, our Week 8 Rankings for Standard, Half-PPR, PPR and IDP leagues are right after the jump! (And our Rest of Season rankings have been updated and can be found here!)

    Great shiz as usual. So, must win for me this week. I kinda already sold a big piece this week. I dealt Evans, Martavis, Wayne Gallman, for D Henry, JuJu, Mike Williams and a 6th Rd pick. I’ll be able to keep all those guys plus David Johnson and DeShaun Watson next year. Anyways, are you comfortable starting 2 Patriots backs? Right now I have White and Lewis in there with Buck Allen at the Flex. Could slide JuJu in there. Should I keep as is? Thanks Homie

      @Randall Cunningham: Thanks man! Bold move, but consolidating is always a great thing, plus the pick. I’d try to avoid it, but it’s not crazy in this situation.

      • Randall Cunningham says:
        (link)

        @Jay: What do you think of streaming Dalton or Tyrod over Watson?

    Great job with the Ranks Jay. Thanks for doing these.

    Keuchley was ranked #1 against the Eagles during Week 6 before the concussion. Curious where you would stick him in your ranks if he is cleared for Week 8, during the week. Read that he practiced in full on Weds. Just needs the indie neurologist to clear him is what I’m seeing.

    Save dem Bolts

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @knucks: Thanks! And probably top 5 if he gets cleared.

    Hey brother I received an offer my m ccoy and Michael Thomas for his Diggs ,Keenan Allen and Devonte Freeman…it’s a +1 ppr my other Rb’s are Hunt ,Kamara,duke and Mack…my other receivers are Pryor and Martavis lol

    • Lex Ruger says:

      @Lex Ruger: I accepted it

        @Lex Ruger: Awesome, I feel good about it.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Lex Ruger: Sup Lex! I like that deal for you, speading out your WRs a bit plus not really losing a huge gap in talent when all is said and done.

  4. 976 says:
    (link)

    Would you drop E sanders for Juju in PPR?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @976: I’d hold there.

  5. Will says:
    (link)

    Half PPR dynasty league. Should I trade away D. Henry and Aaron Jones to get Chris Hogan and Duke Johnson? I’m going with a win-now approach as I’m in second place.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Will: Yeah, if you need a solid PPR WR, I’m okay with this. I’d hold otherwise.

  6. Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey says:
    (link)

    .2 PPR (so .8 standard). max 6 WR and 6 RB.
    QB (1) dak, brissett, hundley
    RB (3) mccoy/howard/montgomery/lat murray/mack/rawls
    WR (3) jordy/julio/jeffery/fuller/decker/wright
    TE (1) ertz/cook
    2 flexes
    K nugent
    DEF (1) max 2 CAR/BAL
    LB (2, max 4) e.kenricks/kwon A/t.smith/ogletree
    DL (2, max 4) both MIN DE’s/a.hicks
    DB (2, max 4) church/h.smith/neal

    one move left on week, do which (or none)
    drop decker for one of (got caught dropping hurns last week gone now): j.matt/jjss/d.thompson
    OR
    drop rawls for one of: ivory/ekeler/d-was (OAK)/lacy

    • Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey says:
      (link)

      @Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey: the WR drop could be decker or wright, i just figure wright’s floor is better (and ceiling is worse of course). i don’t buy this CHI is keeping leads so we’ll never have to throw the ball noise. it’s mostly rare that a DEF goes from as bad as they’ve been to a good one in one year, and i’d also guess their footballoutsiders true rank isn’t nearly as high as recent performances appear to have made them look.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey: The .2 is so arbitrary, haha. Rawls for Ivory is okay there. I might hold onto Decker, but JJSS could help you out too.

      • Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey says:
        (link)

        @Jay: yeah, i joined it due to it having 6 pretty good keepers like 2 years ago. it was sold as a half PPR, only after i got in i’m like “what the F that’s odd”.

  7. Eric says:

    Hey Jay,

    Just an overall comment/question, and I’m assuming I’m not the only one to bring it up. Why not start these rankings on Tuesday, considering Wednesday morning is when most leagues’ waivers clear? I’m just asking because while I use your posts every week for some lineup decisions, it would be great to also use it when thinking about some waiver claims.. and Thursday is just too late in most cases.

    I know it’ll be some more work for you, but I think it might be worthwhile for your page hits.

    Regardless, keep up the good stuff! Thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Eric: It’s a fair suggestion and something I’ll definitely think about. Generally I do rankings for a week-to-week basis, which would help streaming decisions, but might affect longer term plans.

      One way to combat this is probably just updating my rest of season rankings every Tuesday… which would probably be a better indicator for waivers and meeting in the middle.

      Thanks for the heads up, I’ll start updating my ROS rankings on Tuesday and see how that goes.

      • Eric says:
        (link)

        @Jay: Great, thanks!

  8. ryanoger says:

    .5 PPR

    Lose Tarik Cohen for Jalen this week? I’m thin at RB this week I have Jordan Howard and Marlon Mack going, but I could lose Cohen and play Jalen instead?

    Also, for FLEX this week….Snead (sounds like he is 100%) or Cohen/Jalen (depending on what you say above).

    thanks jay

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @ryanoger: Yeah, it’s an okay idea, especially during bye week madness. I’d probably want Snead, and if that means keeping Cohen, I’m totally fine iwth that.

  9. CL says:
    (link)

    Ahoy-hoy…

    Lost Rodgers, 12 team PPR. Picked up Goff(bye) and Dalton. I was offered Wentz for Hunt. Hold, and roll with Goff ROS (Dalton this week), or take offer? That would leave me with Freeman, McKinnon & Allen as my RBs.

    Related problem; I need a kicker and just can’t bring myself to drop Zurlein. This trade would solve that problem too.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @CL: Tough blow. I’d hold, I wouldn’t want to give up Hunt right now.

      • CL says:
        (link)

        @Jay: Seems to be the consensus. my 3 game losing skid has clouded mu judgement. Thanks man!

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          It would do the same to me!

  10. No Pepper says:
    (link)

    Jay great job as always!
    Would you trade AJ Green for Gronk?
    PPR. My other WR are Fuller, Tate, D Thomas.
    I have Denalie Walker but would hole till after Grobks bye.
    I’m in 9th place.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @No Pepper: Thanks man! I’d probably hold there, I think your WRs can’t take that hit.

      • NO PEPPER says:
        (link)

        @Jay:
        Thank Man!

          Any time!

  11. Jim says:
    (link)

    Hey Jay,

    I have to choose between Matt Ryan and Deshaun Watson this week. I know you’ve got Ryan higher in the rankings, but he looks awful. You would still throw him out there rather than take a chance on Watson vs Seattle and hope he can make some things happen?

    Thanks a lot.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Jim: I would, yeah. But you’re right, I don’t like the way Ryan’s been throwing.

  12. Dan says:
    (link)

    Assuming they both suit up, who would you go with between JuJu and Amendola this week in a ppr league? I know Martavis will be out but the volume for both of these guys isn’t great. Tough call.

    Much appreciated.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Dan: Amendola by a hair right now.

  13. Wacha Wacha says:
    (link)

    Due to byes and injuries I will need to start either Beathard vs ARZ or M Moore vs Oak in a two qb league Who would you recommend? ( Neither is not an option ). Thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Wacha Wacha: I’d go Beathard. Tough one though.

  14. Scott P says:
    (link)

    You are one of the few people that have Wilson above Cousins at QB this week. I’m stuck with both and have to choose one. What is your thinking behind your ranks on this one?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Scott P: I like Wilson’s matchup a little bit more, and loved what I saw from him at times this past week. Cousins is close enough though, and I had a tough time ranking them both.

      • Scott P says:
        (link)

        @Jay: Thanks!

  15. Terry says:
    (link)

    Hey Jay,

    Thanks as always, quick IDP question. Christian Jones not in the top 50 at LB this week? He’s been doing well. I ask because I am thinking about dropping Jaylen Smith and need a replacement.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Terry: Yeah, he’d be close, probably inside the top-60.

      Sorry, pick 3, full PPR

      Demarious @ KC

      Thanks!

      • Jay

        Jay says:
        (link)

        @Fonzinoon: then I’d do DT, Ajayi, and Garcon.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Fonzinoon: Thanks for the kind words! I have it at DT, Garcon, Funchess, and Jones. I’m actually okay with putting in Ajayi for Funchess though.

      • Fonzinoon says:
        (link)

        Thanks!

  17. Dave says:
    (link)

    Hey jay,

    I see Doctson and Davonte Parker are one spot apart in your rankings who would you start if my teams projected to lose by a lot with a lot of guys on bye on my team? Don’t know who’s floor/upside combo is better.

    Also, with Diggs practicing fully this week does he get ranked any higher?

    Thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Dave: I’d say Parker has the higher ceiling there, I’d probably go him. And you’re right, I just moved him up four spots in my TNF update. I feel okay about that change.

  18. Franks & BEANS says:
    (link)

    Evening jay! .5 PPR league based on my squad stand pat or would you recommend fine tuning?

    1.) deal my Sanu to acquire witten (witten is sitting on that owners bench)

    2.) deal hogan to acquire Jimmy graham + either Derrick Henry, Tevin Coleman, Kupp or kearse?

    3.) don’t trade for a TE & continue to trade? I’ve been streaming since week 1.

    Week 8 TE stream options lol bare with me they aren’t the best:

    – Ryan Griffin, at Seattle. Houston is coming off bye & week 7 Giants faced Seahawks, Evan Engram had a very productive day vs Seattle day not sure if it’s because Seattle maybe rusty off the bye or traveling from west to east? Not expecting a monster game from Griffin but encouraging what Engram did

    – if golden Tate is out Ebron & Darren fells are available , week 7 Steelers (lions week 8 opponent) gave up a TD to TE kroft, kroft had himself a nice lil day week 7

    – Vernon Davis , hosting cowboys. Kittle was shut down week 7 by Dallas . But redskins are better than SF even when Reed is healthy cousins still throws to Vernon. Week 7 Davis had about 67 yds receiving.

    – ed Dickson, at Tampa. Dickson has been up & down boy do the panthers miss Olsen lol. But he’s serviceable.

    Week 7 vs Bucs TE Logan Thomas had 1 rec for 22 yds that went for a TD
    Nick o Leary week 7 no TD but had 58 yds receiving

    Week 6 Arizona faced Bucs. Not including because well cards TEs are trash & they don’t utilize them

    Week 5 hosted pats: Gronk was inactive & Dwayne Allen wasn’t a factor in the offense, doesn’t count

    Week 4: Giants , Evan Engram no TD but had 6 rec for 62 yds

    Week 3: Vikings Rudolph did nothing only .5 pt

    Or lastly zach Miller who’s at New Orleans. I feel like he may be the security blanket if & when the bears are forced to play catch up

    TEs vs saints recently:

    Week 7 Marty B 2 rec / 17 yds
    Lance kendricks nothing

    Week 6 lions: 1 rec 9 yds that’s it!!
    Darren fells 2 rec for 26 yds & 1 TD

    Week 5 bye

    Week 4 Miami Julius Thomas only 2 for 29 yds

    It looks like saints have been decent vs TEs

    4.) I’m trying to deal my mcaffery + tyreek hill for shady McCoy but if that doesn’t happen would you deal mcaffery for Crabtree then flip fuller to receive one of kamara, mixon or chris Thompson?

    Thanks man!!

    • Franks & BEANS says:
      (link)

      @Franks & BEANS:

      Oh my RBs are Gordon, hunt, mcaffery, Aaron jones, AP, McKinnon, Burkhead , David Johnson on IR

      My WRs Keenan Allen, hogan, fuller, Parker, tyreek hill, Baldwin, Sanu

      TE streaming currently

      Thanks!!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Franks & BEANS: F&B! Soooooo, let’s see…

      1 – Sure. 2 – Yes, and I’d prefer Henry or Coleman there, in that order. 3 – Streaming is okay, but with Sanu for Witten, it’s low cost and Witten has had a good year thus far.

      And yeah, if you do stream, I think Vernon is still okay there.

      4 – I’d hold there, I like the value of your guys better.

  19. Good Will Hunting 2: Hunting Season says:
    (link)

    12 team PPR. due to JAX on bye (i’m not dropping JAX) and stills seemingly a better WR option while my own parker continues to be out i have less than my normal amount of RB’s.
    RB (exactly 2 no flex): hunt/mckinnon/coleman/collins/morris/collins (plus morris might end up with ZERO value or possibly HUGE value)
    WR (3) brown/stills/DT/fitz/parker/maclin

    drop collins for riddick or richard (i wouldn’t play richard this week of course over mckinnon)?

  20. Good Will Hunting 2: Hunting Season says:
    (link)

    crap, maclin IS active, him or stills in PPR? guessing where you ranked stills while parker was ranked this is easy stills, but you did rank wallace, also out.

  21. fizz says:
    (link)

    landry, djax, agholar, or mack at flex?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @fizz: Landry there.

    • Good Will Hunting 2: Hunting Season says:
      (link)

      @Jay: yeah sorry, i meant it was quite obvious i wouldn’t play richard, so assumption being richard has very little value to me.

  22. Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
    (link)

    20 team dynasty with real life sized IDP rosters and minimum 10 WAS players at all times. rushing yards worth .5 more than receiving, full PPR. scoring is very QB and IDP heavy, thus even though my WR appear very weak i’ve been a top 3 team for like 3 years (used to have AP helped years ago, my LB are awesome, blount last year obviously)
    QB (1) cousins/goff
    RB (1) thompson/blount/lat murray/kelley/perine
    WR (2) pryor/doctson/k.benjamin/m.williams/treadwell
    TE (1) reed/brate/VD
    1 flex (due to scoring this pretty much should always be a RB if he’s a starter)
    K nugent
    IR hopkins
    LB (3) kwon A/david/e.kendricks/bucannon/burfict
    DT (2) AAron donald/streamer for 2nd slot (this week due to too many byes don’t have one)
    DE (2) heyward/campbell/streamer this week
    S (2) joseph/mathieu/j.evans (streamer)
    CB (2) breeland/melvins
    IR cravens/j.allen (DT WAS)/d.hall (S WAS)
    probably a moot point with only the 13/20 waiver but who’s my drop for ris matthews, very stupidly just dropped. gotta be one of treadwell (but i’ve done SOOOO badly holding just not long enough on agholor/m.lee in this league already in the last 2 years)/v.davis (but he has value of course, would have tons more next time reed’s out) or a LB (but those guys are all very good and many of them get hurt and/or suspended quite often)

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: Yeah, it’s a small pickle here. I like Davis, even when Reed is healthy in this league, and Agholor and Lee still have some value. Just based on how your depth is spread, I might just go ahead and drop Treadwell there.

      • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
        (link)

        @Jay: noticing an interesting point re: how awesome how damn many TB LB are (i had beckwith immediately once kwon A and david went out, only dropped when both were back). good god how bad must their DL be in the last 4 years or so for 2 or more guys be THAT good for fantasy, and not just in tackles, kwon A and david get big plays too. but almost literally every team’s opposing scrimmage play must get to them in the first place for them to get all those tackles. the DL’s must never get in backfield, nor often at all pressure a QB.

  23. Mike says:
    (link)

    Hey man, simple WR stash Q. In my .5 PPR league who’s a better add for depth /upside on my bench/ not necessarily for this week but overall: Doctson, Bennie Fowler, Mike Williams, Eli Rogers, Tyler Lockett, snead, Corey Davis, Beasley.
    Let me piggy back on fowler, if sanders is out Monday thoughts on fowler vs the KC d who have been decimated by WRs recently. Who knows it could be a “Demaryius game”
    Thanks in advance

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Mike: Snead then Williams. And yeah, I like what you’re saying here on KC.

  24. The Harrow says:
    (link)

    oh my dear god flacco’s agent (who literally has to be the best agent ever when he got that contract) must be the announcer of this game. i don’t have direct quotes but it’s just the worst revisionist this year history imaginable.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @The Harrow: haha, yeah, that was a crazy deal.

  25. The Harrow says:
    (link)

    @The Harrow: oh my dear god it’s revisionism EVEN IN THIS TELECAST!

    so flacco is both somehow “known for being a great long thrower (even said specifically to be a great QB in general)” but ONE DRIVE later it’s a “rarity” (which is actually true) when flacco or BAL’s offense has a big play. and just now “these guys are near bottom offenses this year (true)”

  26. I got $100 for groceries, $1400 for liquor and $6,000 for you to bail a couple of shit puppets out of jail says:
    (link)

    sweet crap collins is looking good vs MIA’s 3rd ranked rush D. in a 20 teamer PPR finally after weeks and weeks of not using forte at flex i’ve gone j.allen at RB #2 and collins at flex with gurley off. NOW i finally come around to benching collins for what’ll be either beasley/golladay/wright. only good thing is i’m playing against landry HAHAHA.

  27. Dirty Randy says:
    (link)

    Hey!!
    Thoughts on this potential big big trade. Well ok ok not that big but I think it’s worthy of popping popcorn for!

    .5 PPR league: I send mcaffery + will fuller. I receive Zach Ertz + kamara. He also has mixon & Demarco Murray.

    Or try my hogan straight up for Ertz? I like hogan & kinda need him lol he’s been solid

    It’ll upgrade me at TE I haven’t added one yet for the week, and kamara I feel will be solid.

    Butttt there’s a down side this may be a delinquent owner he didn’t change his roster last week & had sanders out

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Dirty Randy: I’d hold on both, but I do think the first one is kinda fair. I clearly would want your side more.

  28. STeve says:
    (link)

    Who do you prefer for best ROS stash, D. Lewis of J. Doctson? Have Lewis now but Doctson is available on waivers and hear lot of chatter about his role going forward. Thanks

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @STeve: I’d say Doctson.
