Following a 4-TD game, Carson Wentz takes the top spot for Week 8
After scoring 11 touchdowns in the past three weeks, Carson Wentz has earned the top spot in the fantasy quarterback rankings for Week 8. He faces the San Francisco 49ers, who have given up the second-most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks this season. While Wentz has had some games where he wasn't an elite option, he certainly has played very well this season.
For fantasy owners, Week 8 will be tough with six teams on a bye. The waiver wire doesn't offer a lot of solid options, although if Josh McCown is available, he has played well as of late. He faces the Atlanta Falcons, who have a decent defense, but have allowed all opposing quarterbacks to score at least one touchdown.
Teams on bye: Arizona, Green Bay, Jacksonville, Los Angeles Rams, New York Giants, Tennessee
