QB List’s Fantasy Football Rankings: Week 8

Erik Smith and Ryan Heath release their PPR fantasy football rankings for Week 8.

Ryan Heath’s WR Rankings

 

  • Wan’Dale Robinson has been targeted on 30% of his routes since returning from injury and is coming off a game where he posted eight targets on 78% route participation. Ranking him at WR24 above the likes of Diontae Johnson is admittedly a little aggressive after his role last week led him to rank just 34th at the position in OPPO, but I’m okay with continuing to be out ahead on a 2nd-round rookie who rivaled Treylon Burks for the most productive SEC receiver in the draft class.
  • Zay Jones continues to post excellent target volume (10 last week, averaging nearly 8 per game) while delivering little in the way of fantasy production. He ranks 21st among all receivers in OPPO per game in the last month, but has underperformed his expected points by a whopping 5.6 fantasy points per game in that time (only Diontae Johnson has been less efficient with his opportunity over that stretch). I will continue over-ranking Jones until the fantasy points come.
  • On the other end of the spectrum, Tyler Boyd ranks just 53rd in OPPO per game in the last four weeks and was 18th in Week 7. Of course, Boyd has outperformed the former mark by a solid 4.1 points per game, and just experienced a blow-up week in which he and teammate Ja’Marr Chase were the top-scoring wideouts in fantasy football. Boyd’s role ostensibly hasn’t changed (3rd on the team in routes, 79% slot snap rate), so I’ll bet against his production sustaining by ranking him rather conservatively at WR44.

    Wondering where Kadarius Toney will be ranked rest of season after the trade/bye week. Any preliminary thoughts?
