Week 8 of the Fantasy football season is upon us, so let’s set our sights on setting the best possible lineup. If you have Josh Allen, Jalen Hurts or Joe Burrow, you know what to do. If you don’t and have to make a tough choice, this is the place to be for those tough Week 8 fantasy football start ’em, sit ’em decisions in single QB leagues.
Welcome to our weekly fantasy football start ’em, sit ’em article for QBs!
Fantasy Football Start ’em, Sit ’em: Week 8 QBs
Start: Kirk Cousins Fantasy Outlook vs. Cardinals
Kirk Cousins has been a QB1 in four out of six weeks prior to the Minnesota Vikings’ bye last week. Now, fresh off of their bye, Cousins and the Vikings have a matchup with the Arizona Cardinals, who are giving up 20.3 fantasy points per game (fppg) to opposing QBs which is the sixth-most. Cousins makes for a solid QB1 in this matchup, especially with the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Chargers on a bye.
Start: Tua Tagovailoa Fantasy Outlook vs. Lions
Tua Tagovailoa flashed his upside back in Week 2 against the Ravens when he threw for 469 yards and six touchdowns, as well as two interceptions, for 40.9 fantasy points. He then had a couple of quiet weeks as he dealt with at least one concussion, then was out a couple of weeks prior to his return last week. He draws a matchup with the Detroit Lions, who are giving up 21.2 fppg to opposing QBs, and he makes for a great play at QB.
Sit: Trevor Lawrence Fantasy Outlook vs. Broncos
Despite putting up 24.9 and 18.7 fantasy points over the last couple of weeks, good for QB4 and QB7, Trevor Lawrence is best left on your bench this week when the Jacksonville Jaguars play the Denver Broncos in London. The Broncos are giving only 10.2 fppg to opposing QB,s which is the lowest number in the league. Lawrence is an obvious bench play in this week’s fantasy football start ’em, sit ’em Week 8 decisions.
Sit: Aaron Rodgers Fantasy Outlook vs. Bills
Aaron Rodgers has been a disappointment for fantasy owners this season, as last week was his first as a QB1. After calling out his WR corps following disappointing games, perhaps he gets improved performances this week. He will need it. This week, he draws a matchup with the Buffalo Bills, who are only giving up 12.5 fppg to opposing QBs. Leave him on your bench this week.
