Fantasy Football: Patreon Premium Projections & Flex Rankings for Week 8
Each week the Ballers release their Premium Projections and Flex rankings to Patreon members at JointheFoot.com. Here were some of this week’s projections, common flex rankings conundrums and Ballers’ “Starts of the Week” that hopefully led you to a Week 8 win.
3 QB Projections that Will Influence Fantasy Matchups
1. Jared Goff is projected for 30.4 fantasy points against the Packers. Jared GARF has been uber-efficient with the highest yards per completion (14.0) and a stellar TD to INT ratio (14:5). The Rams have the highest team implied total (33.0) of the weekend against a defense that ranks 22nd in DVOA according to Football Outsiders. Follow the points and believe in Goff as a top-5 play this week at home. Garf is Mike’s QB “Start of the Week”.
2. Ben Roethlisberger is projected for 29.0 fantasy points against the Browns. Big Ben should be a solid start coming off the bye as an 8-point home favorite. The Browns have averaged 348 passing yards allowed on the road this year although they show up well on Football Outsiders metrics as 3rd best in DVOA against the pass. With the 3rd highest team implied total (29.5) of the week, the Steelers will score points. This should be a fast-paced game as well as both teams rank in the top 11 in the pace of play. Big Ben is Jason’s QB “Start of the Week”.
