Below you will find our newly released fantasy football rankings for week 8. Last week included some surprise breakout players including D’Onta Foreman with 31.5 fantasy points (Half PPR) and Jordan Addison who finished with 27.8 fantasy points. Addison and the Vikings will head to Green Bay for a big NFC North matchup while Foreman and the Bears get to face the Chargers on Sunday night. Beyond the matchups let’s take a look at some injuries we are monitoring in week 8.
Jalen Hurts – Hurts was seen wearing a knee brace in the second half of the Eagles win over the Dolphins. It looks like Hurts won’t miss any time but this is something to monitor. Hurts is taking a lot of hits while extending plays and will need to protect himself better.
Bijan Robinson – What in the world happened to Bijan Robinson on Sunday? The Falcons have stated that he wasn’t feeling well but this was bizarre as Robinson wasn’t listed on the injury report. The hope is that Robinson indeed was just dealing with some type of bug and there aren’t underlying issues here.
D.K. Metcalf – Metcalf missed the first game of his NFL career on Sunday against the Cardinals. He is dealing with rib and hip injuries that kept him out last week. Metcalf is tough and I don’t expect these injuries to linger.
