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, SportsLine's model beat human experts last season when there were big differences in rankings. That could literally be the difference between winning your league or going home empty-handed.

Last week, the model was extremely high on Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert, saying he'd finish as the top-ranked player at his position. The result: Herbert completed 27 of 43 pass attempts for 347 yards and three touchdowns. He also had nine carries for 66 yards and a score. 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 latest Week 8 Fantasy football rankings.

One player the model is high on this week: Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz. And a massive shocker: Saints quarterback Drew Brees, who's thrown two or more touchdown passes in three of his last four games, 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 SHOCKING 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 start and sit in Week 8? And which surprising quarterback could lead you to victory? ... Join SportsLine now to get Fantasy football rankings or every single position, and see which shocking QB comes out of nowhere to crack the top 10, all from the model that out-performed experts big-time last season!
