Before setting your Week 8 Fantasy football lineups, you NEED to see what SportsLine's advanced computer model has to say. When it comes to ranking players, the model beat human experts in Fantasy football last season when there were big differences in ranking. And the model was closest-to-the-hole overall, meaning it best pinpointed where every player would finish each week. That could literally be the difference between winning your league or going home empty-handed.

Last week, the model was extremely high on Raiders tight end Darren Waller, saying he'd finish as a top-five player at his position despite being started in less than 75 percent of leagues. The result: Waller recorded seven receptions for 126 yards and two touchdowns against the Packers. Anybody who had him in their lineup was well on their way to a HUGE week.

Now the model, which simulates every game 10,000 times, has revealed its latest Week 8 Fantasy football rankings.

One player the model is high on this week: Cardinals running back Chase Edmonds, who went off for 27-126-3 stat line last week and will likely start again on Sunday with David Johnson (back/ankle) reportedly sidelined. The model ranks Edmonds as a high-end RB2 even though he was started in just 19 percent of leagues last week.

And a massive shocker: Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., who's coming off a his second 100-yard receiving performance of the season, stumbles big-time and doesn't even crack the top 20 at his position. He's a player to consider putting on the bench.

The model is also calling for a surprising quarterback you aren't even thinking about to finish in the top 10 of its Fantasy football rankings! This pick could be the difference between winning BIG and going home with nothing. You ABSOLUTELY need to see who it is before locking in your lineups.

So who should you sit and start in Week 8? And which surprising quarterback could lead you to victory? ...
