Week Eight Fantasy RB PPR Rankings: Should-starts, sleepers, potential busts

Week 8 Fantasy RB PPR Rankings: Must-starts, sleepers, potential busts

Last week has been a big week for running backs who are traditionally higher up in PPR leagues. The likes of Jamaal Williams, Giovani Bernard and Boston Scott used the injuries of Aaron Jones, Joe Mixon and Miles Sanders to create solid days of fantasy, especially in PPR leagues. Since all three lead-backs will likely be "questionable" in week 8, these reception threats will be slightly higher in our fantasy RB-PPR leaderboard for week 8, although at least a couple of top-backs will return to the leaderboard early this week .

Our PPR ranking is also backed by the fact that the likes of Dalvin Cook, Jonathan Taylor and Myles Gaskin are back in action after bye. The losses of David Johnson, Kenyan Drake, Chase Edmonds, James Robinson, Antonio Gibson and JD McKissic will sting a bit, but our PPR rankings should be worth enough for fantasy owners to benefit from, especially if Christian McCaffrey is expecting back is from his sprain on his ankle. (TO UPDATE: McCaffrey was expelled.)

Quarterback | Run back | Wide receiver | Narrow end | D / ST | Kicker

As usual, Williams (v Vikings), Nyheim Hines (@ Lions), James White (@ Bills), Jerick McKinnon (@ Seahawks), and Corey Clement (v Cowboys) see their values ​​soar into the flex tier in the PPR formats this week, and Leonard Fournette (@Giants) is also up after a week of six catches.

Quarterback | Wide receiver | Narrow end | D / ST | Kicker

Le & # 39; Veon Bell is also a fascinating piece in PPR formats this week. The Chiefs are up against the minor Jets, and this is a major game of revenge for Bell that was released by the Jets a few weeks ago. He didn't do much in week 7 but he should have an RB2 / Flex rating as he is more comfortable on the Chief's offense.


Players dragging down for lack of reception capabilities include Gus Edwards (v Steelers), Adrian Peterson (v Colts), Frank Gore (@ Chiefs), and Latavius ​​Murray (@ Bears), though Edwards still have some value could start when Mark Ingram (ankle) is out.
