Initial Week 8 Fantasy Football Rankings
Earlier today, we released many items to help fantasy owners make their waiver-wire decisions: (1) our waiver-wire column, (2) updated fantasy strength of schedule and (3) updated rest-of-season rankings.
Especially with six teams on bye this week, an owner's decision of whom to add may come down to which one would they start this week.
While my weekly rankings will be tweaked throughout the week, I have published my initial rankings for Week 8.
Here are my fantasy quarterback rankings for Week 8:
1. Peyton Manning, Denver Broncos (vs. WAS)
2. Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers (at MIN)
3. Drew Brees, New Orleans Saints (vs. BUF)
4. Matthew Stafford, Detroit Lions (vs. DAL)
5. Robert Griffin III, Washington Redskins (at DEN)
