Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 8 Rankings
Mark Andrews Note

He's been extremely hit-or-miss this year, as he's either totaled 55-plus yards and scored at least one touchdown, or he's totaled fewer than 30 yards with no touchdown. His fantasy finishes in half-PPR formats have been 1, 30, 35, 3, 3, 30. The Steelers have allowed just 48.9 percent of passes directed at tight ends to be completed. That's helped them allow a piddly 4.98 yards per target to the position, and they've allowed just one touchdown on 47 targets. Despite playing against Zach Ertz, Noah Fant, Jonnu Smith, Austin Hooper, Evan Engram, and Jordan Akins, they've yet to allow a tight end record more than 57 yards or finish better than the TE9. When the two teams met last year, he totaled five catches for 45 yards on seven targets. Bottom line is that Andrews is far from a sure thing to produce for his fantasy managers but you're going to play him in redraft leagues due to the upside he presents, which is top-three every week.

Marquise Brown Note

Brown has a tough matchup here this week against the Steelers secondary. With Lamar projected to struggle as a passer, Brown's probably best viewed as a low-end WR3 that has a wide range of outcomes. He can always break away a long play, but it's all about determining the probabilities of that happening.

J.K. Dobbins Note

Dobbins should get the nod here as the lead back with Ingram unlikely to suit up. With this offensive philosophy, it's hard to see Dobbins getting 75% of the touches out of this backfield, which could push him up into top-12 consideration against a very stout run defense. He should be viewed as a low-end RB2 that will need to score, or break away a long run, to finish higher than that.

Edwards should see plenty of carries in this game too, but it's hard to trust him as anything more than a bye week fill-in option.
