Week 8 PPR Rankings

The NFL trade deadline is fast approaching, and a few deals have already had serious fantasy ramifications. Carlos Hyde was traded from Cleveland to Jacksonville, vaulting Nick Chubb to weekly RB2 status. Hyde now enters a timeshare with T.J. Yeldon for the time being, making both of them flex plays.

But here’s the big one: Amari Cooper to Dallas. I’m not sure this trade affects Cooper’s stock too much, as Dallas actually throws much less than Oakland, and Dak Prescott isn’t an upgrade over Derek Carr. However, the trade should create more opportunities in Oakland for the likes of Jordy Nelson, Jalen Richard, and possibly even Martavis Bryant (although I’ll have to see it first to believe it).

My tip of the week: make sure to keep up on NFL trade buzz so you can pick up those key waiver wire acquisitions before your league mates do. Now, on to this week’s rankings.
