Week 8 Fantasy Football Matchups: Who to Start and Who to Watch


As Week 8 unfolds in the NFL, fantasy football managers face tough matchups that could impact their starters' performance. Several typically reliable players are up against formidable defenses, potentially posing a challenge to managers seeking victory in their weekly matchups. Who are these players, and which alternatives are worth considering to fill the potential points voids? Let's dive into a preview of the upcoming fantasy week. One standout performer to watch is second-year running back Breece Hall. After a slow start, Hall is beginning to resemble the player who burst onto the scene last season, generating excitement among Jets fans. In Week 6, he racked up 15.3 fantasy points, an achievement no other running back had managed against the Eagles' stout defense this season. His performance in Week 7 against the struggling Denver Broncos defense was even more impressive, tallying 25.4 fantasy points. Now, in Week 8, facing the New York Giants, Hall has an excellent opportunity to extend his streak of double-digit fantasy points. The Giants' defense has struggled, surrendering the ninth-highest number of fantasy points to opposing running backs, averaging 21.7 points. Provided that quarterback Zack Wilson can avoid costly mistakes and keep the team competitive, Hall is poised to exploit the Giants' vulnerable defense. Cowboy Channel plus app
