  • Travis Etienne flies into the top 10: Etienne shined last week in his first game as an unquestioned starter, and a decent matchup makes him a top-tier running back this week.
  • Start Rondale Moore: Moore achieved a 100-yard game with a touchdown, working his way into fantasy starting lineups.
  • Nathan Jahnke’s fantasy rankings have been the most accurate in season rankings over the last four seasons combined, per FantasyPros‘ rankings accuracy competition.

These are my fantasy football rankings for Week 8 of the 2022 NFL season for PPR leagues, including some notes about players to help you make your weekly decisions. Rankings in other formats can be found here.

According to FantasyPros, my rankings were fifth-most accurate in 2021, second-most in 2020 and third-most in 2019. I was the only analyst to rank top-five all three seasons, making these the most consistently-accurate rankings of the last four seasons.
