NFL Week 8 is here! Can you believe we're at the halfway point of the NFL Regular Season? See below for Week 8's top fantasy quarterbacks. I add whom I think has the most over-priced salary. I also add whom I think offers the best value. Then, as always, I add QB options for NFL Week 8. Check it out!
NFL Week 8 Top Fantasy QBs
1. Tom Brady, $7,600, New England vs L.A. Chargers
2. Dak Prescott, $7,300, Dallas at Washington
3. Carson Wentz, $7,200, Philadelphia vs San Francisco
4. Drew Brees, $7,000, New Orleans vs Chicago
5. Matt Ryan, $6,800, Atlanta at New York Jets
Most Overpriced Salary
Matt Ryan, $6,800, Atlanta at New York Jets
Ryan hasn't yet become comfortable with offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian's play-calling. The reigning NFL MVP has thrown 6 interceptions to only 7 touchdowns. His QB rating is an abysmal 89.3. What's more disturbing is that since their bye, the Falcons have lost 2 in a row. All told, Atlanta has lost 3 straight. There's something not right with the 2017 Atlanta Falcons.
Best Choice Based on Salary
Carson Wentz, $7,200, Philadelphia vs San Francisco
Dak Prescott isn't a bad play at $7,300. I slightly favor Wentz at his $100-less salary because Carson faces the San Francisco 49'ers defense while Dak faces a much better defense in Washington's. The Niners allow 256.8 passing yards per game. They also allow 26.6 points per. Philly's offense revolves around Wentz throwing the football. He should have a huge day versus SF in Week 8.
NFL Week 8 QB Options
DeShaun Watson, $6,400, Houston at Seattle
Seattle's defense is susceptible to the rush. DeShaun is a great drop back passer that can run with the football. I don't believe there's a defender that can stick with DeShaun if he decides to run. He's already one of the most unique signal-callers in the NFL.
Kirk Cousins, $6,400, Washington vs Dallas
I think Cousins could have a huge game versus a suspect Dallas secondary. Washington plays their chief rival at home on Sunday. Cousins has plenty of weapons including emerging WR Josh Doctson. Expect Kirk to light up the Boys.
Philip Rivers, $6,300, L.A. Chargers at New England
Sure, New England's defense looked great against the hapless Atlanta Falcons' offense. Atlanta hasn't scored more than 17 points in three straight games. P. Rivers has the weapons, especially pass-catching RB Melvin Gordon, to dominate the Patriots' defense on Sunday.
Andy Dalton, $5,700, Cincinnati vs Indianapolis
If you're offense wants to get well, just play the Indianapolis Colts. Dalton should have a field day throwing the football to WR A.J. Green. How bad is Indy's defense? The Colts allowed Jaguars' QB Blake Bortles to throw for 330 yards and a TD.
If Bortles can post those numbers, how good are Dalton's stats going to be?
