With only two teams on a bye in Week 8, fantasy managers should have an easier time trying to fill their lineups. Some players are beginning to return from injury, which should help as well. Jerry Jeudy is back in the wide receiver rankings this week, as a WR3. Teddy Bridgewater certainly can use him, and the matchup is great against the Washington Football Team. It's not clear if Jeudy will be limited at all, but he will be active, barring a setback.
One team to look at is the Green Bay Packers. Both Davante Adams and Allen Lazard were placed on Reserve/COVID-19 list this week. The Packers play the Cardinals on Thursday night, so Adams and Lazard are not ranked below. Marquez Valdes-Scantling is currently on injured reserve, but he could be activated for Thursday's game, pushing up to a WR3 in the rankings. Equanimeous St. Brown has also seen a bump in the rankings, although it is going to be a tough matchup for both, and don't forget about Randall Cobb.
