Kansas City's Travis Kelce was the only tight end to score more than 10 Fantasy points in each of the last three games, but he is on a bye this week. The Chiefs' open date means that owners will have to look elsewhere at that position for their Week 8 Fantasy football picks. Arizona's Zach Ertz only had four targets last week due to DeAndre Hopkins' return, leading to his lowest output of the season. Ertz had caught at least six catches in his previous five starts, so should you include him in your Week 8 Fantasy football lineups? Where should Ertz be in your Fantasy football rankings for Week 8? Before you lock in your Fantasy football lineups, be sure to check out the Week 8 Fantasy football rankings from the advanced computer model at SportsLine.

When it comes to ranking players, SportsLine's model beat human experts in Fantasy football for the past several seasons especially when there were big differences in ranking. Over the course of a season, that could literally be the difference between winning your league or going home empty-handed.

Last week, the model was extremely high on Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker III, saying he'd finish as a top-five player at his position. The result: Walker recorded 23 carries for 168 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's win over the Chargers. Anybody who had him in their lineup was well on their way to a huge week.

Now, the model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, has revealed its Fantasy football rankings for Week 8 of the 2022 NFL season. Head to SportsLine now to see them.

Top Week 8 Fantasy football picks  

One player the model is high on this week: Lions quarterback Jared Goff. He hasn't thrown a touchdown the last two games, but had nine in the previous three games combined. Goff has topped 250 passing yards in three of the last five games and now faces a Dolphins defense that's been gashed through the air.

Steelers rookie Kenny Pickett threw for 257 yards and a touchdown against Miami last week, while Kirk Cousins (175-2), Joe Burrow (287-2), Josh Allen (400-2), and Lamar Jackson (318-3) have all found success through the air against the Dolphins. Moreover, Goff will get star wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown back from a concussion, giving him even more firepower against Miami. See who else to target here.

And a massive shocker: Packers running back Aaron Jones, who finished with over 75 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns last week, stumbles big-time and doesn't even crack the top 20 at his position. Jones rushed eight times for just 23 yards in Sunday's loss against the Commanders but brought in nine of 10 targets for 53 yards and two scores.

The Packers are struggling offensively, averaging just 18.3 points per game this season. Plus, Jones and the Packers will square off against the Buffalo Bills, a defense that's giving up just 281.5 yards per game this season, which ranks first in the NFL. With one of the toughest NFL matchups, Jones is a player to consider putting on the bench in Week 8. See who else to fade here.
