Well, here we are half-way through the 2019 NFL season. The year of ups, downs and injuries has led many fantasy footballers to think that it is becoming increasingly harder to play. The unpredictability and difficulty of setting your lineup with the right players can be challenging, but that’s why we play isn’t it?
There are two teams on a bye this week, including the Baltimore Ravens and Dallas Cowboys.
Here are eight players for Week 8 that can help turn your team around so all hope is not lost:

I included Edmonds in this list last week and in case you did not believe me, Edmonds certainly proved you wrong for not picking him up sooner. He capped off the day with a three-touchdown performance on 27 carries for 126 yards.
With David Johnson hurt, Edmonds will continue to be their feature back in Arizona as Kliff Kingsbury’s offense has seemed to finally find some life. With a matchup against the Saints on the horizon, expect Arizona to play it safe for Kyler Murray and run the ball in a tough road test for any quarterback.
