My Week 7 start/sits picks went 16-9-2, with an even split stemming from the tight end position. It's crucial to bounce back with fantasy teams in need of tight end waiver wire pickups due to Mark Andrews and Darren Waller being unavailable while on byes this week.
It's time to find out which players are tricks and which ones are treats for NFL Week 8.

Points are going to be plentiful in this matchup, which is why Cousins should be in all lineups. The Cowboys rank fifth in fantasy points allowed to quarterbacks this season, and their reliance on Cover 1 (man coverage with a single safety deep) plays into Cousins’ strengths.
Captain Kirk is PFF’s fourth-highest graded quarterback versus Cover 1 this season (87.7).
Two words: Tennessee Titans. Their defense has struggled to stop the passing game this season — outside of the extremely rare Week 7 shutdown of the Kansas City offense — green lighting Wentz as a solid streaming option for Week 8.
