It’s Week 8 and fantasy football team owners are battling to unseat the top teams or stay on top. A typical league these days has no team dominating every other team in their league. For those fighting to stay on top of the standings, the Week 8 fantasy football rankings will help in setting your line-ups. Also, make sure to play the waiver wire and get the best talented players on your roster.

There have been a lot of overtime games this season. Feels like a record, right? Here are 32 things we learned in Week 7.

This Week 8, pay attention to the injury status of players like Rob Gronkowski, Robby Anderson, and Peyton Barber. If they are active, they would be rankable players in fantasy football. Most are ranked below as they seem to have a chance of playing.
