The following are my suggested prime streaming selections for week eight.

Streaming Defenses

Pittsburgh Steelers

50% owned Yahoo/34% owned ESPN

This defensive unit has been one particular of the most effective in football considering the fact that week three. From week three to week 7, the Steelers had 15 sacks, eight interceptions, five fumble recoveries, and 1 touchdown. Via this very same time frame, the Steelers have scored double-digit fantasy points in each and every game. I have been asking myself how they are so below-owned whilst performing so nicely. I feel element of the answer is they have been on a bye final week and will have to have been dropped. Use this to your benefit. Grab them now. The Steelers play the Miami Dolphins in week eight. In case you missed it, the Dolphins are terrible. They have only scored far more than 15 twice this year. In the six games the Dolphins have played in this year, they have provided up 13 turnovers and 24 sacks. This is a matchup with a red hot defense and an ice-cold offense. It is screaming week winner and if you have the possibility to grab the Steelers defense, you must.

Detroit Lions

9% owned Yahoo/five% owned ESPN

Playing the Lions this week is incredibly comparable to taking the plunge with the Cardinals final week. Daniel Jones and the Giants have been incredibly friendly to opposing defenses this season and the Lions are so low owned, they are accessible practically everywhere. Because Daniel Jones’s blow-up game against the Buccaneers (four games), the Giants have 12 turnovers and have permitted 13 sacks. As I pointed out earlier, the Cardinals place up 14 points and up till final week they had only scored far more than five points 1 time whilst scoring two or fewer four instances. The Lions are at residence and must be seeking for a rebound just after two losses and the turnover-prone Daniel Jones must supply this defense the chance.

Streaming Quarterbacks

Teddy Bridgewater

17% owned Yahoo/22% owned ESPN

Teddy Bridgewater is undefeated as a starter this season and has only gotten improved as the season has moved along. In week eight Bridgewater will square off with the Arizona Cardinals who are permitting the 4th most points to quarterback in 2019.  More than the final three games, Bridgewater is averaging 278.three passing yards per game and two.three touchdown passes per game. With Alvin Kamara possibly sitting out a different week, the Saints may well have to lean on Bridgewater in this one particular to carry the group. If you are a group with Lamar Jackson or Dak Prescott on a bye, Bridgewater is a fantastic fill-in.

Mason Rudolph

7% owned Yahoo/six% owned ESPN

Mason Rudolph has been cleared and must be back for this week’s juicy matchup with the Dolphins. The Dolphins defense bleeds points. They are permitting the 2nd most points to quarterbacks on the season. Rudolph has thrown two touchdowns in each and every game he has played in but 1 so far this season. He must continue that trend against the Dolphins. My only concern is the Steelers nevertheless do not look committed to him getting a beginning-caliber quarterback. In the two games he began and completed, he is only averaging 27.five pass attempts. Possibly that alterations just after the bye week, but there is nevertheless a small concern getting into the week, but the matchup is as well fantastic to pass on.

Streaming Tight Ends

Darren Fells

28% owned Yahoo/16% owned ESPN

As I mentioned final week, tight finish is a barren wasteland and it hasn’t gotten any improved. If you are in will need of a streaming choice at tight finish, Darren Fells is a person to take into account. Fells has been the preferred choice at tight finish for Deshaun Watson. Fells will see the Oakland Raiders in week eight. The Raiders are providing up the 3rd most points to tight finish this year. Fells has noticed ups and downs this season but I am comfy investing in a passing offense like the Texans against a defense that has struggled against tight ends.

Ricky Seals-Jones

three% owned Yahoo/three% owned ESPN

Ricky Seals-Jones has created a good rapport with Baker Mayfield. The matchup against the Patriots this week is not a terrific one particular but with Stephon Gilmore shadowing OBJ this week and far more consideration getting provided to Jarvis Landry, Seals-Jones could discover himself in a position exactly where he is seeing far more possibilities. Against the Seattle Seahawks, ahead of the bye, Seals-Jones saw six targets and was capable to turn one particular of the catches into a touchdown. The Browns will have the throw the ball in this game and that must bring a lot of possibilities for Seals-Jones.
