Mike Tagliere’s Week 8 Fantasy Football Rankings
It’s trading season, y’all. The NFL trade deadline isn’t until the start of next week, but plenty of teams are making moves to secure players to use sooner rather than later. In case you’ve missed it, Emmanuel Sanders has been dealt to the 49ers, while Mohamed Sanu has been moved to the Patriots. There’s probably more to come before the games begin on Sunday, so stay tuned to the rankings throughout the week.
When looking at the rankings, I fully expect you to have some questions on why your favorite player is ranked too low, or why your least favorite player is ranked too high. That’s where The Primer comes in. That’s the article where I write a paragraph from every fantasy relevant player from every game (yes, even Anthony Miller and Darius Slayton). Whether it be snap counts, injuries, or cornerback matchups, it’s all covered there. The Primer comes out every Thursday morning, so if you’re wondering why a player is higher or lower than you’d think, the answer will be in there. Until then, here’s my early look at Week 8 rankings.
