FANTASY SHARKS RADIO: Fantasy Football Feeding Frenzy — Week 8 Preview

We’ve already hit Week 8 of the 2017 NFL season. The fantasy football campaign is already into the second half, and soon the stretch run for the playoffs will begin.

For many fantasy owners, that makes the edict clear – win this week, or there may not be a stretch run to worry about.


As usual, the NFL isn’t making things any easier for fantasy owners. For every player who has exceeded expectations there are seemingly two who have underperformed. And the list of stars battling injuries seemingly grows by the week.

In Week 7 we saw Arizona quarterback Carson Palmer felled by a broken arm in the Cardinals’ blowout loss to the Los Angeles Rams in London. Granted, there aren’t many teams rolling out Palmer every week. But his absence affects the entire Arizona offense, from wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald to tailback Adrian Peterson.

It’s a similar deal in Miami, where a surprising Dolphins team is now on their third quarterback. If it’s Matt Moore under center Sunday, what effect will that have on the fantasy value of running back Jay Ajayi and wide receiver Jarvis Landry?

And will we be seeing fellow pass-catcher DeVante Parker on the field any time soon?


It’s those sorts of questions that the folks at the Fantasy Football Feeding Frenzy will endeavor to answer when they gather to preview Week 8. So whether it’s injury news, sleeper plays or potential busts join us Wednesday, October 25 at 7 PM Eastern as we break down all the info you need to keep your playoff push on the tracks.

Come on in – the water’s FINE!
