Week 8 has arrived and the dominoes continue to fall. Patrick Mahomes’ injury’s made the season for Tyreek Hill owners, and has opposing defenses licking their chops. Trades have occurred and folks like Mohamed Sanu, Emmanuel Sanders and others are on the move before the trade deadline. It all funnels into this week of football where the Baltimore Ravens and Dallas Cowboys are on bye.
Seasoned fantasy players know about the studs and chalky plays so at Bruno Boys we try to help wade through the matchups on those tougher decisions, or point out when there’s a great matchup that you should go all-in on.
Still, we feel very strong about these recommendations and you should use them to help guide you to your starting lineup.
Here are your Week 8 Fantasy Football Team Defenses to Sit.
Arizona Cardinals Team Defense at New Orleans Saints
Some fantasy owners out there might have been enticed at Arizona’s sudden defensive outburst against the Giants but some of the credit has to be Patrick Peterson joining the team. That said it will be short-lived as the Cardinals travel east to New Orleans where the Saints have averaged 23.4 points since Drew Brees went down. Having Bridgewater under center has forced others besides Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara to get involved. It’s worked so far and when he does come back, probably by Week 10, this offense will be even tougher to stop.
