My Week 8 start/sit picks went 14-15-2, with the running back position being my biggest miss. It's crucial to bounce back, as many fantasy teams are in need of running back waiver wire pickups due to injuries and numerous studs, such D’Andre Swift, are on bye weeks.

QUARTERBACKS

START

TUA TAGOVAILOA, MIAMI DOLPHINS 

Tagovailoa was listed as a “sit” this past week because of his tough matchup against the Buffalo Bills. However, he gets an extremely easy Week 9 opponent in the Houston Texans, who offer the third-easiest matchup for quarterbacks.

Add him off the waiver wire and start him if your normal fantasy quarterback is on a bye. His 25.4 expected fantasy points per game over the past three weeks ranks No. 3 in the league.
