2021 Fantasy Football Week 8 Rankings


Welcome to the 2021 Fantasy Football Week 8 Rankings!

Thankfully we are through that awful bye week. I had some solid performances still and some not-so-great performances from my teams. We aren’t out of the bye week woods quite yet, but we won’t have another week with six teams on bye. In fact, this week we only have two; Ravens and Raiders.

We are seeing plenty of players distance themselves from their teammates. Cordarrelle Patterson vs Mike Davis and D’Andre Swift vs Jamaal Williams come immediately to mind.

We are also possibly seeing the end of some superstars, being superstars. Julio Jones and Allen Robinson are two that I think of. Now I think Robinson could do well if he could not play the Bears, but something seems off with Julio. Perhaps it is all the injuries finally catching up to him.
