We're just about halfway through the Fantasy football season. How's everybody feeling? At this point, you should have a fair evaluation of your team and what to do next. Are you riding high at 5-2 or better? Maybe you're stuck in the middle at 4-3 or 3-4. And if you're 2-5 or worse, what are you waiting for? It's time to make moves. Pick up the phone, text your buddy and let's make some things happen.

For Week 8, specifically, it's tough sledding with the Football Team, Texans, Cardinals and Jaguars all on bye. You may have noticed that your RB2 or flex spot is quite gross. Just know that you're not alone. I'm here to tell you that I'll be trusting Le'Veon Bell as a low-end RB2 in his revenge matchup against the Jets. Of course, we know the narrative where Bell gets to shine against his former time. Heck, I wouldn't be surprised if Andy Reid gets Bell in the end zone not just once, but twice. But it's not just the narrative why I like Bell. The Jets run defense has been legitimately bad. It is allowing 4.6 yards per carry and 6.1 receptions per game to running backs this season and has allowed a back to score in five of seven games. Bell played 33% of the snaps in his first game with the Chiefs last week and saw six carries to Clyde Edwards-Helaire's eight.

With the Chiefs as 19.5-point favorites, we could see Bell wind up with 15 touches in this game! OK, I might be reaching a bit, but it is a strong matchup and it's a tough week on running backs. I don't mind starting Bell as a low-end option in this spot.

Below you'll find the rest of my thoughts on each game this week, with injuries, stats and more on every Fantasy relevant player.
