**UPDATED 10/28**

Teams on Bye: Packers, Giants, Cardinals, Rams, Titans, Jaguars

We are almost at the mid-point of the NFL regular season, which means we are halfway through the fantasy football season! Sad, but true. We are now at the point where the focus begins to be on the playoffs. If you’re sitting pretty atop the league at 7-0 or 6-1, you may want to check out who your players face in the fantasy playoffs. You do not want to get there and lose to the last team in because Alshon Jeffery is playing at Seattle, for example.

If you’re in the race for playoffs, but just out, then these are the type of weeks you need to capitalize on. We have six teams on bye this week, which means a lot of people are scrambling to find guys to start. By the way, if you are one of these people, you can check out the Add/Drop article from earlier in the week to find players who could potentially still be there. For some reason, people panic when they see a couple players on bye. It’s not like this should be a surprise; the schedule has been out for awhile now. Do not be one of these people. Instead, use the rankings below to completely and utterly embarrass your opponent while you punch your ticket to the fantasy football playoffs.

I’ll continue to update my rankings throughout the week, as news breaks and TNF finishes, so continue to check back. Bookmark the page if you need to, because these are the only PPR fantasy football rankings you need for week 8.
