We’re now approaching the mid-point of the season already, about to start Week 8 of the 2021 season, and continuing our Start ‘Em Sit ‘Em series. I’m hoping you weren’t too badly hit by the bye weeks last week, and managed to find the W’s you needed! This week there are just two teams on bye, far more manageable:
- Baltimore Ravens
- Las Vegas Raiders
As always, if you are struggling with a decision you can checkout our rankings for each Week. Or, if you want a more personal touch, reach out on social media. You can find us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Or jump into our Discord server.
Matt Ryan v CAR
Ryan is having a bit of a green patch, after throwing for 336 yards, 2TDs and one pick against Miami last week. Ryan seems to be getting used to the offense, and Kyle Pitts is now looking like the player many hoped he would be. If Ryan manages to get Calvin Ridley more involved, then he could really get firing towards for the second half of the season.
Teddy Bridgewater v WAS
Bridgewater is the standard streaming option this season it feels. Not good enough to keep each week, but can be played in good matchups comfortably. Washington are the worst team in the league at stopping QB production, so I’m comfortable playing Bridgewater this week. If you are the Lamar Jackson owner, go for it
Daniel Jones @KC
Jones has struggled with turnovers throughout his career, which has led to him being on shaky ground for fantasy. But one thing that he has been able to do is to exploit bad defenses, and at the moment the Kansas City Chiefs is one of the worst in the league. There is streaming ability here.
Tua Tagovailoa @BUF
Tua isn’t the problem wit the Dolphins. He isn’t holding them back, so I don’t really understand why the team are rumoured to be making a move for Deshaun Watson. Either way, this week he faces the toughest team in the league against the position. With only two teams on bye, you don’t need to play him.
Mac Jones NE @LAC
Jones has been ok this season, not great but has had some streaming value. The thing is though, the running game has really improved and the Chargers struggle to stop ground attacks. They are one of the best units against QB though. Avoid.
