Nic is off this week taking a glorious road trip and so I shall be bringing you the quarterback fantasy football rankings for Week 8.

Tom Brady literally doesn’t age and as such, he will remain a top five fantasy option until his dying days. That’s right, even when Brady is retired, I’ll still rank him as a top five fantasy quarterback because you just never know when he could randomly take the field and toss four touchdowns.

Speaking of four touchdowns, how about a hand for Justin Herbert and everyone who was smart enough to add him off waivers. Holy buckets the rookie has been balling out and he’s well earned the benefit of the doubt in my books. He’s a QB1 regardless of the matchup until he proves otherwise. The kid is GOOD!

This might be the lowest Josh Allen has been ranked this year but there’s a very good reason for it. Allen hasn’t been his usual self in recent weeks and it doesn’t get easier facing off against the Patriots. Now this defense is not what it was last year, but Allen has struggled against the Pats throughout his young career, averaging 193 yards, and a touchdown and almost two interceptions per game. I’m betting the Patriots manage at least one interception against Allen and keep his big play passing to a minimum.

Fire up Derek Carr and Jimmy Garoppolo this week with the utmost confidence. Both their matchups are incredible and I expect the passing games to be on full display this week.
