Fantasy Football: Week 8 Studs and Duds
Russell Wilson, QB Seattle Seahawks/ Desaun Watson, QB Houston Texans: Both QBs were absolute highlight reels in Sunday’s showdown in Seattle, and because of that I had to put both of them on my Studs list. Watson is the real deal (which I said a couple weeks ago) but if anybody had any doubts they should be gone now. However the Seahawks QB gets the W here for basically single-handedly winning Seattle that game.
LeSean McCoy, RB Buffalo Bills: This is no surprise because Shady McCoy has been doing this stuff all year. With 151 yards and a TD he deserves to be a week 8 Stud and in your starting lineup every week.
Deandre Hopkins/ Will Fuller V, WR Houston Texans: I also couldn’t pick one here because both of these players had fantastic days in the shootout in Seattle. If you had either of these guys in your lineup I’m betting you won.
Jack Doyle, TE Indianapolis Colts: I was really skeptical of Doyle this week so I recommended not starting him, and boy did he make me look dumb. With 12 catches for 121 yards and a TD he not only had a career day but made a serious splash in the fantasy football realm.
Jameis Winston, QB Tampa Bay Buccaneers: What is going on with the Winston this year? Is definitely something I’d like to know the answer to. With his lingering injury and poor play I would look for other options than Winston until he gets is act together.
Kareem Hunt, RB Kansas City Chiefs: The Broncos defense has been stiff against opposing RB all year and that wasn’t changing against the Chiefs. The rookie RB was held under 100 scrimmage yards for the first time this year and had a rather disappointing showing.
T.Y. Hilton, WR Indianapolis Colts: Hilton has been in a slump lately and that didn’t change Sunday. I don’t know whats going on with the Colts but I’m starting to think he isn’t a must start anymore.
Jordan Reed, TE Washington Redskins: Reed had a disappointing showing due to injury and I don’t know if I’m looking to him in the coming weeks.
