What You Need to Know From Week 8

A look at the most important fantasy takeaways from Week 8


  1. Curtis Samuel scored a rushing touchdown as a red zone running back plus caught a long fleaflicker touchdown, he’s fantasy relevant and the team is making good on desires to use him more.
  2. D.J. Moore did nothing until the last drive, and his floor gets a lot lower by Samuel getting better.
  3. Calvin Ridley left with a hurt foot, but it’s not believed to be serious. He’ll have three extra days to recover before the Week 9 game against Denver.
  4. Brian Hill outplayed Todd Gurley who scored but otherwise came up small in a good matchup. Monitor this to see if it becomes more of a committee.
  5. Hayden Hurst continues to be helped by Julio Jones being out there and is a consistent high floor TE1 now.
  6. Mike Davis ran well despite the so-so fantasy results, he’s worth holding as a Christian McCaffrey injury hedge now that he’s proven he can be a strong fantasy play if given the chance.
  7. Teddy Bridgewater did nothing except the fleaflicker touchdown. That really undermines our confidence in him as a streamer or 2QB/Superflex play.
