Denver Broncos running back Royce Freeman attempted just three rushes for 20 yards in the Week 2 loss to the Steelers with Phillip Lindsay (toe) inactive. Even with Lindsay on the sidelines for this one, Freeman just wasn't a part of the offense as Melvin Gordon III's backup. Lindsay could miss more time, but Freeman just won't see enough touches to be fantasy relevant unless Gordon also suffers an injury that causes him to miss time.
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill is in a prime spot to put up big numbers in Week 8 against the Jets. The Jets Defense has struggled against wide receivers and is allowing 176 yards per game to pass catchers. Hill started a new touchdown streak in Week 7 and has now scored six of his first seven games this season. This game could wild with the Chief overpowering offense versus a winless Jets team, and the speedy receiver should be a big part of the game plan. Hill should be fired up as a WR1 Sunday.
Kansas City Chiefs running back Le'Veon Bell will look to have a revenge game against the Jets in Week 8. Bell made his Chiefs debut in Week 7 and saw 33% of the backfield snaps behind rookie Clyde Edwards-Helaire. Bell saw six carries in that span and picked up 39 yards, but was not targeted in the pass game. The Jets have allowed 105 yards per game and 45 yards receiving to opposing backs and Bell would certainly like to remind the Jets of what they've missed out on. Edwards-Helaire will continue to be the lead back for the Chiefs, but Bell could see increased action this action and beyond. Bell should be considered at RB3/flex option in Week 8 and beyond for now.
Kansas City Chiefs rookie running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire will look to keep his strong season alive in a favorable matchup against the New York Jets in Week 8 against a defense that is allowing opposing runners to gains 105 yards per contest and 45 yards per catch, both of which bode well for the rookie. Fantasy managers should be aware that veteran Le'Veon Bell should see some run in a revenge game, however, and Bell could see more work late in the game if this turns into a blowout. The Chiefs have a clear edge in talent in this contest, and that means that in addition to giving up snaps to Bell, CEH could have a shorter day than normal if the score goes as expected. Either way, Edwards-Helaire should be fired up as a strong RB1 in Week 8.
Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is gearing up for a feast against the 0-7 New York Jets in Week 8. Mahomes had a quiet Week 7 by his standards but also sat out part of the fourth quarter due to the Chiefs large lead, and that could again happen on Sunday. The Jets Defense is allowing 29 points per game and 268 yards passing per game and have allowed two or more touchdowns in every game besides two. The Chiefs clearly outmatch the Jets, and it's scary to envision how badly the Chiefs could beat the Jets. Fantasy managers should be aware that if the score gets out of control, Mahomes will likely be rested, but he should still be fired up as a high-end QB1.
Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce will look to get back on track with a Week 8 matchup against the New York Jets. Kelce was held to just three catches for 31 yards in Week 7, but managers shouldn't worry. The Jets are currently allowing 47 yards a game against tight ends. The Chiefs are expected to score a lot on Sunday versus the winless Jets and that puts Kelce in a prime position to help managers. Kelce can safely be plugged in lineups every week as a TE1.
Los Angeles Chargers tight end Hunter Henry will look to get back on track in Week 8 versus the Denver Broncos. Henry only had 23 yards on three catches in Week 7 and hasn't topped 50 yards since Week 3. Henry has been targeted seven or more times by quarterback Justin Herbert in all but one game this season, but he hasn't done much with those opportunities recently. Henry will look to turn that around in Week 8 in a favorable matchup versus the Broncos, a defense that has been allowing 52 yards per game to tight ends. Henry has an opportunity to put together a strong game, but Denver hasn't allowed a touchdown to a tight end since Week 1 and that will limit Henry's upside. Henry should be treated as a low-end TE1 in Week 8.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen will look to keep producing against the Denver Broncos in Week 8. Allen has been a target machine for quarterback Justin Herbert and enters Sunday with 44 receptions, 481 yards and a pair of touchdowns over the first six games of the season. Allen has been heavily featured and remains the top option for a Chargers offense that has become more pass friendly with the arrival of Herbert and running back Austin Ekeler (hamstring) sidelined. The Broncos are allowing 164 yards per game to opposing pass catchers and Allen should be very involved in a game that is expected to go back and forth on Sunday. Allen should be considered a WR2 in Week 8.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams will look to get back on track in Week 8 against the Broncos. Williams is fully healthy after dealing some injuries earlier in the season, but he has been inconsistent on the season. The big receiver only had one catch for four yards in Week 7, but has a chance to put together a good performance against a Broncos Defense allowing 164 yards per game versus wide receivers. Due to his inconsistency, managers shouldn't count on Williams to be more than a WR4/WR5 with upside on Sunday.
Los Angeles Chargers rookie running back Joshua Kelley will look to get his season back on track in Week 8 versus a stingy Denver Broncos Defense that has allowed just 90 yards per game to opposing runners. Kelley has really struggled over his last three games and has been splitting work with Justin Jackson in the backfield while Austin Ekeler (hamstring) has been sidelined. Neither Jackson or Kelley has run away as the top back for the Chargers, but Jackson has been operating as the starter in a close to 50-50 timeshare and seems to be preferred the option for coach Anthony Lynn. Kelley is best served as a bench option in Week 8.
Los Angeles Chargers running back Justin Jackson will have a tough task in Week 8 versus a tough Denver Broncos run defense. Jackson has been the starter with Austin Ekeler (hamstring) sidelined, but he has been splitting the backfield work with rookie Joshua Kelley. Jackson only picked up five carries for 12 yards in Week 7, but he did secure five catches for 43 yards. The Broncos Defense has only allowed 90 yards per game to opposing runners, but running backs are averaging close to seven catches a game against them, and that works to Jackson's benefit. Between a tough matchup and splitting work with Kelley, though, Jackson shouldn't be viewed as more than a flex option in deeper leagues this Sunday.
