Week seven is in the books, and this is already beginning to look like one of the weirder football seasons in recent history. The Giants are 6-1, the Jets are 5-2, and Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers are not only losing, but losing badly. In such a topsy-turvy season, fantasy football is proving to be harder than in years prior. So, sleepers are becoming more valuable than ever.

My picks from last week were okay–I had some stinkers, but I also have you Jimmy G, Robinson, and Gage (who all had productive weeks). Here were all my picks from week seven.

QB: Jimmy Garoppolo, 17 points

QB: Jacoby Brissett, 10 points

RB: Kenyan Drake, 0 points

RB: Sony Michel, 2 points

WR: Won’Dale Robinson, 8 points

WR: Russell Gage, 6 points

I’m going to try and keep the room-temperature ball rolling here in week eight, so if you want to ride along with me, you can be sure to take prop bets on any of my sleepers through these New Jersey Online Casinos.

Quarterbacks:

Davis Mills (Owned in 9% of leagues)

Davis Mills is coming off of his first 300+ yard passing performance in week seven, a game in which he almost dropped 20 fantasy points against the Raiders. Here in week eight, he’ll be taking on the Titans, who have given up the eighth most points to opposing quarterbacks so far this season. Mills has been a bit shaky this season, but I expect him to find his groove here in week eight. 

Andy Dalton (Owned in 6% of leagues)

Dalton had a great game in week seven against the Cardinals, where he threw for 361 yards and FOUR touchdowns. While he also threw three interceptions, that didn’t matter much–he totaled for almost 30 fantasy points. Here in week eight, the Saints will be taking on the Raiders, who have given up the most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks all season. 

Running Backs:

Tyler Allgeier (Owned in 49% of leagues)

I’m cutting it close with my 50% owned cut off here, but running backs have been brutal to me this year, so I’m giving myself the slip here. Allgeier has been a bit of a lowkey workhorse so far this season, averaging 13.5 carries and 57.5 yards per game. He has two 10+ fantasy point performances in the last four weeks, and the Falcons are a run-heavy team, so he has tons of fantasy upside every week.

JaMycal Hasty (Owned in 5% of leagues)

Hasty moved up the Jaguars depth chart after the trade of James Robinson to the Jets, but still only saw one carry last week against the Giants. However, Jaguars head coach Doug Peterson said on Wednesday that Hasty will see more carries in week eight, which sees the Jaguars take on the Broncos. The Broncos have given up the 13th fewest points to opposing running backs so far this season, but, come on–running backs are hard to find.

Wide Receivers:

Parris Campbell (Owned in 23% of leagues)

Campbell is coming off his best two-week stretch as a pro (17 catches on 23 targets for 127 yards and two touchdowns). He’ll be looking to keep his hot streak going in week eight against the Commanders, who have allowed the eighth-most points to opposing wide receivers all season.

Marquise Goodwin (Owned in 22% of leagues)

With DK Metcalf out, Tyler Lockett could be drawing in most of the Giants’ secondary’s attention here in week eight. With them preoccupied, Goodwin could be in for a big week. Last week, Goodwin scored two touchdowns on 67 yards and 4 receptions.
