Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard doesn't make for a strong fantasy option in Week 8 despite an increasing role in the previous week. With starter Ezekiel Elliott failing to distance himself from Pollard and losing two fumbles last week, Pollard has been seeing more and more touches, with a season-high 12 in Week 6 and another nine in Week 7. That's still not enough for consistent production, but it does eat into Elliott's upside. With the Cowboys offense in shambles and perhaps getting even worse this week with Andy Dalton (concussion) on the wrong side of questionable, Pollard should remain on fantasy benches in most formats.
Dallas Cowboys rookie quarterback Ben DiNucci is looking more and more likely to get the start in Week 8 against the Philadelphia Eagles. Starter Andy Dalton (concussion) still hasn't been cleared to play and was not even able to practice on Wednesday. DiNucci played in Week 7 after he replaced Dalton, going 2-for-3 for 39 yards while absorbing three sacks. DiNucci under center would be another big downgrade to all of the Cowboys offense, making the Eagles Defense suddenly a top-five fantasy option in Week 8.
Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott might be the only reliable fantasy option in the entire Cowboys lineup in Week 8. With seventh-round rookie Ben DiNucci looking like the likely starter in place of Andy Dalton (concussion), the Cowboys offense could be even more of a mess than they have been since Dak Prescott (ankle) went down. Elliott could be the only one on the Dallas offense to get consistent enough touches to be worth a spot in a fantasy lineup in Week 8. Elliott has yet to run for 100 yards this season and has been struggling behind a broken-down Dallas offensive line. Elliott won't have his usual upside in Week 8, but should still be a solid lower-end RB1 option against the Eagles.
Philadelphia Eagles kicker Jake Elliott won't make for a great fantasy option in Week 8 lineups despite what is predicted to be a high-scoring game against the Dallas Cowboys. Elliott has been a solid kicker in previous years, but this season he's only made eight of his 12 field goal attempts and 11 extra points. The Eagles offense isn't giving him many chances, and he's not doing great with the few chances he's been given. While Week 8 against the Cowboys certainly sets up as a nice bounce back game for Elliott and the Eagles as a whole, most fantasy leagues will still have better, safer kicking options on the waiver wire.
The Philadelphia Eagles Defense is set for an excellent Week 8 performance against the Dallas Cowboys. Cowboys quarterback Andy Dalton (concussion) has yet to be cleared to play, meaning rookie Ben DiNucci could end up getting the start on Sunday night. As much as Dalton has struggled to move the ball in the Cowboys offense, it may be even worse with DiNucci under center. The Eagles defense recorded three sacks, an interception, and two fumble recoveries last week and should have their best week of the season in Week 8. They are a top-five option in fantasy lineups.
Philadelphia Eagles tight end Richard Rodgers likely has one more week as the team's top tight end, and it comes against a porous Dallas Cowboys Defense. Dallas Goedert (ankle) has returned to practice and is expected back from Injured Reserve after the team's Week 9 bye, so this should be the final week for Rodgers at the top of the depth chart. He saw a season-high eight targets last week, catching six of them for 85 yards, both also season-highs. He's in line for a somewhat similar workload this week, although the potential return of rookie receiverJalen Reagor (thumb) would give quarterbackCarson Wentz one more body to throw to. Still, with the excellent matchup against Dallas, Rodgers comes in as a low-end TE1 in most formats for one more week.
Indianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich said that rookie wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. (calf) is returning to practice on Wednesday. Indianapolis will now have 21 days to activate Pittman from Injured Reserve. The USC product could return to face the Lions this weekend, but he'd likely play limited snaps if that was the case. The 23-year-old had nine receptions on 12 targets for 73 yards in three games before going down with injury. The Colts haven't had much volume in the passing game with Philip Rivers under center so far this year, but Pittman is a big-bodied receiver capable of making some noise down the stretch if he becomes a big part of the offensive attack. He's worth a speculative pickup in deeper leagues right now, but he should already be owned in all dynasty/keeper setups.
Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert (ankle) and rookie wide receiver Jalen Reagor (thumb) are taking part in practice on Wednesday. Goedert will likely be limited, but Reagor is doing well. Goedert is expected to return in Week 10 after the team's bye, but he should be stashed in all leagues right now since he'll be the unquestioned top receiving tight end when he returns with Zach Ertz (ankle) also on IR. The 25-year-old will have easy TE1 upside when he returns. With the Eagles key skill players nearing returns, quarterback Carson Wentz's fantasy stock is going up as a QB2 streamer. Reagor, a first-round pick, has a chance to play this Sunday against Dallas if he doesn't suffer any setbacks. The 21-year-old could be a deep league flex option if he returns, especially if Alshon Jeffery and Miles Sanders miss another game.
Philadelphia Eagles rookie wide receiver Jalen Reagor (thumb) could be back on the field for a Week 8 contest against the Dallas Cowboys. Reagor hasn't played since Week 2 but has returned to practice and looks like he'll play on Sunday night barring any setbacks. With the Eagles still desperate for pass catchers, it's possible Reagor sees a big workload in his first game back. It's worth checking waiver wires in case impatient fantasy managers let Reagor go after Week 2. The Cowboys Defense makes for a nice soft landing if Reagor comes back this week.
Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett (ankle) is sitting out of practice on Wednesday. Garrett is a must-start IDP defensive lineman each and every week, so this is an injury to keep an eye on throughout the rest of the week. Garrett has a league-high nine sacks and four forced fumbles through seven weeks, including 22 combined tackles (19 solo), five tackles for loss, 13 QB hits and two fumble recoveries. The season-opener against the Ravens is the only game so far in 2020 where he has failed to record a sack. Cleveland's defense overall has given up a lot of points this year and aren't attractive from a fantasy point of view, but Garrett continues to be a pass-rushing beast. Raiders quarterback Derek Carr is hoping that Garrett's injury keeps him from playing in Week 8.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Greg Ward scored a touchdown last week against the Giants, but isn't a great fantasy option despite an even better matchup in Week 8. Ward spent some time as quarterback Carson Wentz's favorite target, but that title has been snatched by Travis Fulgham, who has drawn double-digit targets in three straight games. Ward has operated mostly as the second wide receiver read, but that could change with rookie Jalen Reagor (thumb) expected back. Ward will likely need to score a touchdown in order to have significant fantasy value this week, even against a bad Cowboys Defense. He's somewhere in the lower WR4 ranks for Week 8.
Philadelphia Eagles rookie wide receiver John Hightower is not a reliable option for any Week 8 fantasy lineups. Hightower has caught a few deep passes this season, but he's not seeing anywhere near consistent enough targets to be worth starting in almost any format. He's a zero-floor big play threat who has caught nine passes on 21 targets for 166 scoreless yards so far this season. He's shown glimpses of upside which certainly make him worth rostering in dynasty and keeper formats, but he can stay on the wire for now in most redraft leagues.
Chicago Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson II is in the league's concussion protocol this week. Robinson had a season-low four targets in the Monday night loss to the Rams, but he caught all four of his targets for 70 yards. He's had only nine catches the last two games against the Panthers and Rams in Chicago's stagnant offense after catching 10 passes in Week 5 against Tampa. The Bears need to start getting A-Rob more involved if they want to break out of their current funk. But his head issues this week could make him very iffy to face the Saints in Week 8, so keep a close eye on his practice status this week. As of now, Robinson is a shaky WR2 given his concussion issues. Jimmy Graham, Darnell Mooney and Anthony Miller would be the biggest beneficiaries if Robinson was unable to play this weekend.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Travis Fulgham is set for another big game in Week 8 against the Dallas Cowboys. Fulgham didn't score a touchdown last week for the first time in three games, but he did see 10 or more targets for the third game in a row. Through his first four games of the season, Fulgham has come out of nowhere to catch 23 of his 37 targets for 357 yards and three touchdowns. He's quickly become quarterback Carson Wentz's favorite target. Fulgham is solidly in the WR2 discussion in Week 8 against an exploitable Cowboys secondary.
Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield had his fourth career game with a 125-plus passer rating in Week 7 against the Bengals when wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (knee) suffered a torn ACL. The other three games came in 2018 before Beckham was with the team. OBJ's 53.5 catch rate this year was the second-lowest among 34 receivers with 40-plus targets. Mayfield's passer rating when targeting Beckham is 71.1, which is the lowest among all players that he's targeted 20 or more times since 2019. Mayfield has also been much more likely to throw interceptions when Beckham has been on the field. The sample size is too small to draw any absolute conclusions, but Cleveland's offense has surely lost an explosive playmaker in OBJ. Mayfield may be more efficient when not trying to force the ball to Beckham, but it won't make him a QB1 for Week 8 against the Raiders, even though Las Vegas has allowed the fifth-most fantasy points per game in 2020 to opposing signal-callers.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders (knee) is still day-to-day and has not practiced yet this week. Sanders was forced to miss Week 7 and is on the wrong side of questionable heading into Week 8. With the Eagles scheduled for a Week 9 bye, the team may decide not to push their starting running back and could hold him out until after the bye. For now, he's still listed as questionable, but fantasy managers with Sanders on their roster should already be making alternate plans.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott could have a big game in Week 8. Scott went for 46 yards on the ground and 46 yards through the air last week, catching the game-winning touchdown in a win over the Giants. With starter Miles Sanders (knee) looking likely to miss another week, Scott should operate as the unquestioned lead back again in the Eagles backfield. Facing a barely-there Cowboys Defense, Scott is ranked somewhere right around the RB1/2 border for Week 8.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Corey Clement is unlikely to do much in Week 8 despite an excellent matchup and injuries ahead of him. Last week, with starter Miles Sanders (knee) out, Clement only received three touches, running the ball twice for nine yards and catching a pass for 12 yards. With Sanders not on the field, Boston Scott took over the backfield and operated as the lead back. He should do the same again this week, so even with an excellent matchup against a bad Cowboys Defense, Clement likely won't get enough touches to have any significant fantasy value. He's not an option in fantasy lineups for Week 8.
The Seattle Seahawks acquired defensive end Carlos Dunlap from the Cincinnati Bengals on Wednesday, according to sources. It's unclear what the Bengals received in exchange, but it's likely to be just a late-round draft pick in 2021. In his 11 years in Cincinnati, Dunlap has been one of the team's best pass-rushers, but he became disgruntled with his role when the Bengals demoted him to a situational role this season. The two-time Pro Bowler has 18 combined tackles and one sack in seven games this year. He'll head to a Seattle defense in need of a spark, as they rank 27th in the NFL with just nine sacks through seven weeks of the season.
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz hasn't been as good on the field as most people expected this season, but he's still the seventh overall fantasy quarterback in standard scoring and has been third in the past three games. He's somewhat quietly having one of those better-in-fantasy-than-in-real-life seasons. He's been mostly buoyed by his rushing stats, but he's averaging close to 26 fantasy points per game over the past three games. Taking on a Cowboys Defense that can't stop anyone or anything, Wentz should be primed for a big game in Week 8.
