Week 8 is here, the halfway point for many teams. Time to dig in and get ready. The playoffs will be here soon. “Life is just a fantasy, can you live this fantasy life?”
QB: Derek Carr, Raiders- I might have mentioned Carr earlier in the season. He is still available in 66% of ESPN leagues. If your guy is on bye, give Derek a try.
RB: Alfred Blue, Texans- Arian Foster went down with an Achiles injury. Blue should be next inline. Blue has had some mixed results when filling in.
Darren McFadden, Cowboys- Dallas is a mess right now, but McFadden showed he can produce if he gets enough action. He’s on the waiver in 57% of ESPN leagues.
WR: Stefon Diggs, Vikings- His last 3 games are pretty impressive, catching 19 balls for over 300 yards and a TD. His QB is suspect though, so take that with a grain of salt.
TE: Ladarius Green, Chargers- I know Gates came back last week, but then he got nicked up again. Even if Gates is in, Rivers is throwing the ball around at record numbers. It’s very rare for a team to have 2 viable TE options, but San Diego does just that.
D/ST: The Dolphins seem like they have it screwed back on tightly, they are at New England this week. They play Buffalo, Philly, and Dallas after.
