Fantasy Football Start 'Em Sit 'Em: Week 8 lineup advice, best matchups, DFS picks

  Fantasy Football Start 'Em Sit 'Em: Week 8 lineup advice, best matchups, DFS picks As we pass the halfway point of the fantasy football regular season, start 'em, sit 'em decisions become even more crucial. SN's Vinnie Iyer breaks down all the key borderline players and dishes out Week 8 fantasy lineup advice.Just two teams (Raiders, Ravens) are on bye this week, and they feature only a handful of "must-starts" between them. Still, with the likes of Marquise Brown, Lamar Jackson, Darren Waller, Mark Andrews, and Josh Jacobs unavailable -- plus of host of injured players -- plenty of fantasy owners will have to dig deep for waiver wire streamers and reserve sleepers.

Let's start with a little sunshine (literally): There are virtually no weather worries in the forecast this week. Now, the metamorphical storm clouds: The injury list is as bad as we've seen all year. There is some good news there, as well, as Christian McCaffrey and David Montgomery might be back (in addition to Tyrod Taylor, who will start), but with stars like CeeDee Lamb, DeAndre Hopkins, Kyler Murray, Deebo Samuel, James Robinson, Elijah Mitchell, A.J. Brown, and more looking like legit "game-time decisions," fantasy football owners will be sweating out the latest news and updates all day Sunday (and Monday). In an effort to make things a little easier for you, we've compiled all of our Week 9 fantasy rankings (PPR, standard, and superflex) in this article to help with your last-minute start 'em, sit 'em calls. Consider it your one-stop cheat sheet if you've put off deciding who to start until Sunday morning.

2021 Fantasy Football Keeper/Dynasty League Tips, Draft Strategy Advice

  2021 Fantasy Football Keeper/Dynasty League Tips, Draft Strategy Advice Check out our draft strategy advice and roster management tips for dynasty and keeper leagues so you can dominate your league in 2021 and beyond.Keeper/dynasty leagues encourage you to value youth and always be mindful of the way a player's career is trending. In a dynasty start-up draft, rookies will be taken much higher than in a typical yearly league (for obvious reasons). The beautiful thing about dynasty leagues is that it operates much like the real NFL -- some teams are in win-now mode; others are building for the future. Still others are stuck right in the middle of a lukewarm hell.

Fantasy Football Auction Tips 2021: Best strategy advice for getting the most value in your draft

  Fantasy Football Auction Tips 2021: Best strategy advice for getting the most value in your draft Auction drafts truly put you in control of your fantasy football destiny. Justin Fensterman from Fantasy Alarm provides tips and strategy advice for navigating your 2021 auction, from nominations to bidding to budgeting.For those unfamiliar, in auction drafts, each team gets a budget of hypothetical money to bid on players. The standard is a $200 budget per team. The snake draft format is replaced with a nomination order that goes from top to bottom each round. The nominator gets 20-30 seconds to select a player, and once the bidding begins, a running clock starts which determines how long the player is up for nomination.

Updated Fantasy Football Superflex Rankings 2021: Top 200 for standard leagues

  Updated Fantasy Football Superflex Rankings 2021: Top 200 for standard leagues Whether you play in dedicated two-QB leagues or simply superflex formats, these are the fantasy football rankings for you. See how much the value of quarterbacks, even the sleepers and backups, is inflated when everyone is gunning for two good ones.Even high-upside backups, like Teddy Bridgewater, Mac Jones, and Trey Lance are going to be drafted, so you can imagine how that drives up the value of the bona fide studs. Patrick Mahomes is universally understood to be the 1.1 across all superflex and two-QB formats. It can be a weird adjustment to change your way of thinking about the quarterback position, but it's just something you have to prepare for.

Updated 2021 Fantasy Football Rankings: Top 200 Cheat Sheet

  Updated 2021 Fantasy Football Rankings: Top 200 Cheat Sheet No fantasy football cheat sheet is complete without a set of Top 200 rankings. Shape your draft strategy with our standard-league big board -- from the top players to the late-round sleepers (and even kickers).It's always important to remember that Top 200 rankings aren't a glorified mock draft. Your draft will not play out like our rankings below. In fact, it won't even be close. All it takes to wildly change the course of the entire draft is one or two wild-card owners who think quarterback is the most important position or that Zack Moss is going to break out in a big way.

Updated Fantasy Football TE PPR Rankings 2021: Best tight ends to draft, sleepers to know

  Updated Fantasy Football TE PPR Rankings 2021: Best tight ends to draft, sleepers to know If a tight end gets a lot of targets, he's going to be valuable in both standard and point-per-reception formats, but our 2021 fantasy TE PPR rankings feature more potential sleepers when you factor in catches. See the whole list before finalizing your draft strategy.The guys at the top consist of Travis Kelce, Darren Waller, and George Kittle. Waller may even have a rare chance to challenge Kelce as the TE1 thanks to equal volume (both had 145 targets last year). T.J. Hockenson and Kyle Pitts, who see a rise in rankings compared to our standard rankings, have a chance to join them as tight ends who will finish first or second on their teams in targets.

Updated Fantasy Football TE PPR Rankings 2021: Best tight ends to draft, sleepers to know .
If a tight end gets a lot of targets, he's going to be valuable in both standard and point-per-reception formats, but our 2021 fantasy TE PPR rankings feature more potential sleepers when you factor in catches. See the whole list before finalizing your draft strategy.The guys at the top consist of Travis Kelce, Darren Waller, and George Kittle. Waller may even have a rare chance to challenge Kelce as the TE1 thanks to equal volume (both had 145 targets last year). T.J. Hockenson and Kyle Pitts, who see a rise in rankings compared to our standard rankings, have a chance to join them as tight ends who will finish first or second on their teams in targets.
