Dallas Cowboys tight end Dalton Schultz is no longer in the TE1 rankings for Week 8. Despite a matchup with an Eagles team that allows tons of points to opposing tight ends, Schultz cannot be trusted with seventh-round rookie Ben DiNucci likely in charge of the Cowboys offense. Schultz and all of the Cowboys pass catchers saw a huge downgrade when Dak Prescott (ankle) was lost for the season, but at least Andy Dalton had run an NFL offense successfully in the past. Now with Dalton (concussion) likely out, DiNucci will be thrown to the wolves, making the Eagles Defense a top play while Schultz becomes nothing more than a low-end TE2.
Dallas Cowboys kicker Greg Zuerlein is not a recommended fantasy option in Week 8. Despite going up against an Eagles team that doesn't particularly limit opposing kickers, Zuerlein will certainly be limited by his own team's offense. Andy Dalton (concussion) already wasn't doing much, and now seventh-round rookie Ben DiNucci may be the one in charge in Week 8. Last week, Zuerlein scored the only points for the Cowboys, making a field goal while the rest of the offense did not much else. While Zuerlein was a top-12 kicker with Dak Prescott (ankle) around, he's not even worth rostering in most formats now.
The Dallas Cowboys Defense is not a good idea for fantasy lineups in Week 8. With their entire offense in shambles, the Cowboys defense may end up being on the field for most of the game on Sunday night. Last week, they allowed 397 total yards to a Washington Football Team that came into that game with only one win. The Cowboys defense has finished higher than 16th in fantasy defenses only once this season and should not be relied on in basically any fantasy format at this point.
Dallas Cowboys rookie wide receiver CeeDee Lamb will look to put last week's near-zero performance behind him in Week 8 against a struggling Eagles secondary. Last week, Lamb could not come up with any of his five targets and rushed for one yard, putting up a score of 0.1 fantasy points in standard formats. Lamb has not had the same opportunities since Dak Prescott (ankle) was lost for the season. Now with Andy Dalton (concussion) looking like he might miss Week 8, Lamb and the Cowboys offense may need to see what they can do with seventh-round rookie Ben DiNucci under center. It's not looking good for any of the Cowboys pass catchers. Lamb is a WR3 with just a tiny flicker of upside in Week 8.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup is not a strong starting option in most leagues for a Week 8 game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Gallup was held without a catch in Week 7, coming up empty on just two targets. While Gallup made for a sometimes exciting boom-or-bust play with Dak Prescott (ankle) calling the shots, he's taken a huge downgrade in moving to Andy Dalton at quarterback. Now with Dalton (concussion) also looking like he'll miss a start, seventh-round rookie Ben DiNucci will be tasked with leading the Cowboys offense. Gallup will remain a boom-or-bust option, but there's a much smaller chance of the boom than in any other game so far this season. He's somewhere in the WR4/5 range at best.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper has tumbled out of the WR1 rankings for a Week 8 matchup with the Philadelphia Eagles. Through no fault of his own, Cooper is unlikely to do much in a game that looks like it will have seventh-round rookie Ben DiNucci starting under center in place of Andy Dalton (concussion). Dalton was already struggling to move the ball for the Cowboys and DiNucci is unlikely to do much better behind a tattered offensive line. Cooper did catch all seven of his targets for 80 yards last week, but he's only scored two touchdowns so far this season and would likely need to find the end zone to put up significant fantasy points in Week 8. Treat Cooper as a lower-upside WR2 at best.
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.
