Our Week 7 top 3 suggested Must Start players for the 2nd week in a row did well. Tannehill ripped it up against the Texans, Brown made some big catches on Monday night football & LeSean McCoy did fine over in England although you could of asked for a few more points. Week 7 grade for our Clock Dodgers Must Start trio a perfect 3/3 as none of the players suggested as must starts hurt your team last week.
The Week 8 Must Start list is has three players who did not start the season well but have very well the past few weeks. The players below are safe plays throughout the remainder of the season so they are not only Week 8 Must Starts but will also be good starts at different times for the remainder of the season.
As always, we mention 3 players that we feel must be in your lineups for the upcoming week. 1 QB, 1 RB, and 1 WR. This is not a sleeper or deep player list. It is merely a trio of players you don’t want to outsmart yourself and keep out of your lineup, although they are not the most obvious of starts every week. Without further ado, your Fantasy Football Week 8 Must Starts.
Teddyy Bridgewater, QB, Vikings
Vikings will be visiting Chicago in Week 8 and that makes Bridgewater a happy QB. He has been coming along this season & with the recent development between him & Diggs, things are starting to really look-up. Expect him & Diggs to have a big Week 8 vs the Bears. Bridgewater is a great QB to use for your bye week.
Chris Johnson, RB, Cardinals
Is this guy for real? Johnson has been in the league for a long time as far as RB’s go and has not slowed up production wise. Don’t forget the fact that he was shot in the off-season, still has the bullet in his shoulder AND skipped the preseason. Good luck to the Browns this week as Johnson is coming to have a field day in Week 8.
Eric Decker, WR, Jets
He’s having a good season as it is, visiting the Raiders in Oakland can be a nice bonus to an already successful season though. It’s going to require the Jets to protect Fitzpatrick, but if so, expect Decker to have a good week. Decker will be a stronger play in PPR but will be fine in both.
