Ryan Fitzpatrick, Tampa Bay Buccaneers:
Week 8 Stats: 194 Passing YDS, 2 TD, 19.6 PTS
The Fitzmagic is back. Jameis Winston managed to throw 10 interceptions in just four games leading to what may be his final game in Tampa Bay, and Ryan Fitzpatrick is ready to put the offense back on the map after an inconsistent stretch of play. Look for Fitzpatrick to elevate the receiving game this weekend.
Aaron Jones, Green Bay Packers:
Week 8 Stats: 86 Rushing YDS, 1 TD, 16.6 PTS
Mike McCarthy finally realized who the best halfback on his roster is, leading to 12 rushing attempts in Aaron Jones’ best outing so far. He is a league-winner, and a terrific matchup on Sunday Night Football against the Patriots provides a stellar platform for him to exude his athletic prowess.
David Moore, Seattle Seahawks:
Week 8 Stats: 4 Receptions, 97 Receiving YDS, TD, 19.7 PTS
In the wake of Doug Baldwin’s shortcomings this season due to injury, David Moore has emerged as a reliable target for Russell Wilson, as evident by his four receiving touchdowns over the past four outings. While his current scoring pace is unsustainable, for the time being as long as he’s crossing the plane, he is a solid WR2.
Jack Doyle, Indianapolis Colts:
Week 8 Stats: 6 Receptions, 70 YDS, TD, 19 PTS
In his first game back from injury, Jack Doyle showed no signs of rust whatsoever. Andrew Luck has always veered towards getting his tight ends involved in the action, from Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen, now with Jack Doyle and Eric Ebron. Doyle will assume the larger target share, but Ebron has emerged as the main red zone option in Indianapolis.
