    Week 8 Upside QBs

    UPSIDE PLAY OF THE WEEK: Daniel Jones (vs SEA) – Danny Dimes has quietly led the Giants to a 6-1 start, and is beginning to warrant more and more appreciation of his craft. He hasn’t thrown an interception during the Giants’ 4-game win streak, and has been a redzone threat on the ground with 3 TDs, in his past 2 outings. This is a ripe matchup for Jones against a Seahawks unit that is allowing 400 yards per game, 4th-worst in the NFL. The Giants offensive success is bound to continue in this one, and with his rushing upside, Danny Dimes makes for a quality high-floor play with upside.

    Week 8 Upside RBs

    UPSIDE PLAY OF THE WEEK: Tony Pollard (vs CHI) – As an owner of ZERO Tony Pollard shares, it saddens me to admit that this a complete smash spot for him. With the Cowboys resting Zeke in their final matchup before the bye, Pollard is primed to be fed until he taps out. Against the Bears, Pollard should easily eclipse his season-high of 13 rushes, and has untapped potential as the lone-back in the passing game. Pollard’s 5.6 YPC is among the best in the league, and he should be wildly productive with the surplus of touches. Fire him up wherever you have him.

    Week 8 Upside WRs

    UPSIDE PLAY OF THE WEEK: Chris Olave (vs LV) – We were all-aboard the Olave Train last week, and it didn’t disappoint. The former Buckeye hauled in 7 balls for 106 yards, on a whopping 14 targets on TNF. The only thing that missing was paydirt. With the Saints likely missing Michael Thomas and Jarvis Landry, it should be more of the same, with Olave dominating the WR targets. Andy Dalton is back under center in Week 8, but if that were to change to Jameis Winston, it would only benefit Olave’s ability to stretch the field. Olave is in must-start territory now.

    Week 8 Upside TEs

    UPSIDE PLAY OF THE WEEK: Pat Freiermuth (@PHI) – The Massachusetts native from Brooks High School has emerged as a top-notch fantasy option at his position. Despite missing a game to a concussion, he still ranks as the TE9 with 65 PPR points. Freiermuth is fresh off one of his best showings of the season, where he finished with 8 catches for 75 yards. His chemistry with rookie QB Kenny Pickett is clearly growing, and barring any future health issues, should have a big second half. The matchup in Philadelphia is a tough one, but projecting to play from behind he should get a ton of volume once again. Get Mooth in your lineups wherever you can.
