The Flex! – Fantasy Football Podcast

NFL Week 8 Fantasy Football Recap Show


On the show, today:

Fantasy Football:  We’ve got an extra-long, jam-packed show for you guys today.  Of course, we recap the weekend that was NFL Week 8.  And it’s never too early to discuss Waiver Wire Targets!  Chris and Jeff offer up their favorite group of Week 9 Waiver Wire Targets.  The Ezekiel Elliott suspension was announced (again) at the conclusion of this show.  As a result of the Zeke news, Rod Smith needs to be added in all leagues THIS WEEK!  In addition, Jimmy Garoppolo was traded from New England to San Francisco late last night.

Week 8 Fantasy Recap:

It was a rough weekend for fantasy quarterbacks.  TY Hilton was a huge disappointment.  Marlon Mack is pushing Frank Gore into a Senior Living Retirement Facility.  Most importantly, we saw the best game so far for 2017 between the Seattle Seahawks and Houston Texans.  The Seahawks and Texans just put on an absolutely amazing performance in Seattle on Sunday.  DeShaun Watson continues to impress football enthusiasts everywhere and continues to prove disbelievers wrong.  Russell Wilson has emerged as a top 5 fantasy quarterback.

Other takeaways from Week 8:

New England’s defense has improved dramatically over the past two weeks.  Matt Ryan and the Falcons continue to look out of rhythm.  Pittsburgh keeps rolling.  Despite not having a big name on the defense, the Bills are for real.   Jeff says the Bills will take a wild-card spot.

There are a lot of waiver wire targets this week.  We’ve got some of the top Wide Receiver targets for Week 9, as well as, top running backs.  And Jimmy G is a must add and needs to be added this week.  Listen to Friday’s Week 9 Fantasy Preview Show to hear how the guys think this move impacts the 49ers offense.


We have received some awesome mailbag questions for Week 9.  And of course, we’ll hit on those mailbag questions.  Thank you guys for continuing to submit your mailbag questions to the show.  We try to answer all mailbag questions sent into the show.    Also, we review our 5 Bold Predictions for Week 8.  This NFL season has been anything but predictable from week to week.  Chris provides some valuable insight on fantasy forecasting going forward.  The Legion of Boom is officially dead.  Funeral arrangements are underway.  The service will be held during the Week 9 Fantasy Preview show later this week.
