Which Player Has To Start In NFL Fantasy This Week?Week 8
|IntoTheEndZone Team||Player Name||Position||Team||Opponent||Reason To Start Them|
|Thomas||Chris Carson||RB||Seattle Seahawks||Vs Atlanta Falcons||As Seattle's clear RB1 and 10th RB in NFL Fantasy, Carson has a safe floor. Carson put up less than 10 points in Week 7 for the first time in 4 games but look for him to get 10+ this weekend against a surprisingly poor Atlanta Falcons team who are ranked 20th against the run.|
|Neil||Matt Stafford||QB||Detroit Lions||@NY Giants||Home game against the New York Giants and Stafford is under the radar at the moment in my opinion. He threw for 350 yards last week and seems to be in a groove.|
|Matt ("Stats")||Deshaun Watson||QB||Houston Texans||@ Oakland Raiders||After watching Rodgers tear up the Raiders last week, Watson looks set to capitalise aswell. The Raiders currently rank #30 against QB's and #31 against the pass so expect him to be slinging it!|
|Aaron||Marquez Valdes-Scantling||WR||GB Packers||Vs KC Chiefs||After Rodgers performance last week I expect MVS’s targets to be more than 3 this week. Add to the KC’s secondary being distinctly average I think this will be a high scoring game!|
|Ricky||Tyler Lockett||WR||Seattle Seahawks||Vs Atlanta Falcons||Over the last few weeks he has been seeing more and more action. Also going up against the struggling Falcons ranked #28 in the league against the pass this could be a big week for him.|
|Matt||Chase Edmonds||RB||Arizona Cardinals||Vs New Orleans Saints||With David Johnson still not fully fit this guy has proven he deserves a starting role of late, doing it on the ground and in the pass game big dual threat player!|
