Reed’s Fantasy Football Corner Week 8

Welcome to Reed’s Fantasy Football Corner! I will be giving you my thoughts on the matchups that I like for fantasy football. I will give my “Starts” and “Sits” of the week for each position. Each will be based on projections and opponents that each player will face that week. Most of my observations will most likely be players you might be on the edge with starting.


Starts: Carson Wentz (vs DAL): After a lackluster start to the season for the Philadelphia Eagles and Carson Wentz, it seems that they have finally made the turn for the good. In the past couple of weeks Wentz and his Eagles offense has really been clicking. Wentz goes up against one of the worse defenses in the league on Sunday. Wentz is a must start in all leagues.

Sits: Cam Newton (@ BUF): After a really bad game last week against the Denver Broncos, Newton and the Patriots will face another tough matchup against the Bills. Newton was replaced last week to backup Jarett Stidham. Coach Bill Belichick has said Cam Newton is still the Patriots starter but I expect that Newton will struggle again this week.


Starts: JaMycal Hasty (@ SEA): With Jeff Wilson Jr. and Raheem Mostert on IR, Hasty could be getting a large majority of snaps. Most expected Jerrick McKinnon to gets snaps once Wilson Jr. went down last week but it was Hasty who got the snaps.

Sits: Devin Singletary (vs NE) Singletary looks to be on the backburner now with rookie running back Zack Moss returning from injury. With a matchup against the New England Patriots on Sunday afternoon you could probably find a player that will get you more production in a flex position.


Starts: Travis Fulgham (vs DAL): Fulgham looks to be Carson Wentz’s new favorite target for the Eagles. Fulgham had 10 targets last week against the Giants. Going up against the Dallas Cowboys is a favorable matchup.

Sits: CeeDee Lamb (@ PHI): With now Dak Prescott and Andy Daulton out to injury, the Cowboys turn to rookie quarterback Ben DiNucci. The Eagles have a good secondary that can slow down just about any offense in the NFL. The matchup this week for Lamb to go along with the quarterback situation does not seem good.


Starts: Rob Gronkowski (@ NYG): Tom Brady and Gronk have found their chemistry and have been rolling the past couple of weeks. With Chris Godwin out with a fractured finger, Gronk will be getting even more looks and targets against the New York Football Giants.

Sits: Tyler Higbee (@ MIA): Higbee will be going up against a deep secondary in the Miami Dolphins. In a heavy run offense with multiple position weapons, Higbee could be limit in targets. Look for other options at tight end with more value.
