The six-team byepocalypse is over and this week only two teams (Raiders and Ravens) are missing. It’s still shaping up to be a tough week for our Fantasy RB Week 8 standings as many running backs face injuries and the usual number of tough showdowns and more difficult committee situations affects things.

Saquon Barkley (ankle), Nick Chubb (calf) and David Montgomery (knee) are all eligible to return this week, but Montgomery is expected to stay out. Barkley (@ Chiefs) would have a cake match if he was able to come back, while Chubb (vs. Steelers) would be in a tough spot, but obviously fantasy owners just want those backs in their lineups regardless. . Ernest Johnson showed last week that he is capable of handling a full set of races if Chubb is out, but a clash against the Steelers would keep him at a low-end RB2 level.

quarterback | Wide receiver | Tight end | D / ST | Kicker

Damien Harris (@ Chargers), Darrel Williams (vs. Giants) and Kenneth Gainwell (@ Lions), assuming Miles Sanders (ankle) is out, are well placed this week and are expected to produce RB1 level numbers at the limit. Zack Moss and Devin Singletary (vs. MIA) also have some great games, although their timeshare remains frustrating. Moss continues to play more snaps than Singletary, but Singletary closed the gap in their last game and narrowly passed Moss. Still, Moss’s slight advantage in touchdown potential gives him an advantage in our standings.

Several secondary full-backs are well placed this week and could see some additional touches / production. Tony Pollard (@ Vikings) stands out the most in our rankings, but JD McKissic (@ Broncos), Brandon Bolden (@ Chargers), Boston Scott (@ Lions) and Rashaad Penny (vs Jaguars) also have favorable matches and should work. like flex in all formats. You can even try Samaje Perine (@ Jets) if you’re in a bind, as the Bengals side-backs have been having a great production lately.

Khalil Herbert (against the 49ers), Myles Gaskin (@ Bills), Michael Carter (against the Bengals) and Mark Ingram (against the Rams) are outstanding starters with some tough clashes. Some of these guys get pretty decent volume, but the same can be said for most of the side-backs listed above who have much better matches. The main difference is that players with a bad game are more likely to get assists on the goal line, but they are still riskier than usual in a week when the rankings are relatively deep.

We’re getting to a point in the season where we have a good idea of ​​who is going to hit and who has the best chance of producing. Some situations are still total guesswork (Dolphins, Broncos, Seahawks) or just plain bad (Texans, Jets), but there are others, like the Falcons or Cardinals, where committees generally thrive. We know bad games are always possible (as we saw with gimpy Mike Davis last week), but we also know that some players have established themselves as “must-haves”. Unless you have significantly better or more reliable options, you have to trust some guys until they give you a reason not to.
