2019 Fantasy Football Week 8 Rankings


Well, that was an interesting Week 7. We had injuries, Patrick Mahomes, Matt Ryan, Kerryon Johnson, David Johnson, Alvin Kamara and more. We also had many poor performances that led to one of the lowest scoring weeks I can remember in Fantasy Football. Basically, if you didn’t start Aaron Rodgers, Chase Edmonds, Latavius Murray, Marvin Jones or Darren Waller in your lineup you were scoring less than 100 points or very close to it. Needless to say, most sites rankings did not predict that. Here is to hoping our 2019 Fantasy Football Week 8 Rankings will do much better.

We’ve also gotten a few trades this week.

Bye Week Teams: Ravens, Cowboys

2019 Fantasy Football Week 8 Rankings

Each week I will be giving some notes for things you will want to keep an eye on as the week progresses. It will be mostly injury-related, but anything that could affect the rankings, that we know about, will be mentioned. Then you can come back and review the rankings as lineup lock get closer.

  • David Johnson played just two snaps after being questionable all week. He watched Chase Edmonds go off. He is still very questionable and looks unlikely to play after the Cardinals signed Alfred Morris.
  • Christian Kirk is still questionable with an ankle injury.
  • Matt Ryan is questionable with an ankle injury, but apparently “can manage”. We’ll see.
  • Cam Newton will still be sidelined in Week 8.
  • Kerryon Johnson is on IR with a knee injury.
  • Davante Adams is still trying to recover from turf toe.
  • Will Fuller is out for multiple weeks with a hamstring pull.
  • Patrick Mahomes is out multiple weeks with a knee injury.
  • Sammy Watkins is day-to-day with a hamstring injury.
  • Adam Thielen injured his hamstring in Week 7. He is not ruled out yet, but seems unlikely to play on a short week.
  • Jared Cook missed Week 7 with an ankle injury and is still questionable.
  • Alvin Kamara is trying to get back to action in Week 8, but it seems like a longshot.
  • Chris Herndon‘s hamstring has still not allowed him to play, Week 8 may not happen either.
  • DeSean Jackson is still trying to recover from an abdomen injury.
  • Mason Rudolph, trying to come back from a concussion is questionable.
  • James Conner luckily was able to get a bye week after injuring his quad in Week 6.
  • Delanie Walker is questionable with an ankle injury
  • Adrian Peterson is also questionable with an ankle injury, but says he’ll suit up.
  • Chris Thompson dealing with turf toe is questionable.
