Ok, so here is a few Week 8 Fantasy Football Predictions. Some are bolder than others, but here we go!
Adrian Peterson is hit and miss due to game flow, and that could continue all year, but Minny looks relatively on track heading into Week 7, and they have Diggs stretching the field… the Bears, giving up 124.8 yards-per-game to regular human running backs, is a tasty match-up that AP can/will likely exploit.
The Browns are the worst in the league against the run, surrendering 151 rushing yards-per-game on the ground. They also have given up 8TDs in seven games. This is a great matchup for CJ2K owners.
The Saints give up the 4th-most rushing yards in the NFL (129.1 yards-per-game), and they surrender 1.0 rushing TDs per contest. This kid is exciting, and while there is always a chance the coaching staff messes this one up, and that news reports have misread the workload expectations in NY in Week 8, it’s time to go bold or go home. Ok, well, don’t go sitting a stud for this unknown, but if you feel like taking a risk at your flex spot this week, Darkwa could be your guy!
David Cobb (calf) is expected to see a big workload in Week 9 (when he returns). While it’s important to keep in mind that news wires get this wrong, and there is a lot of speculation involved in calling out a player like this who ‘could be’ on the rise, he should be grabbed in all leagues. He screams “big surprise” or “total disappointment”, make no mistake that he carries both possibilities, but the risk is near zero given he is on waivers in many leagues. Grab him.
Stefon Diggs is the real deal (again, shout out to @WTCM and others). The dude can ball, and as I said before last week, he had that Marques Colston type feel heading into Week 7, that ‘out of nowhere’ player that people slowly buy into. Don’t keep waiting, buy in!
Why toss out something so unpredictable? Why not?
