The NFL is headed into Week 8, and a week from now, 13 teams will have played half their 2020 regular season schedule. The NFL playoffs are still over two months away, but fantasy football playoffs are fast approaching. Most leagues start their playoffs in Week 14, which means we’ve already reached the halfway point for most fantasy leagues.

Whether you’re atop your league or struggling further down, we’re here to help you set your fantasy football lineups. Entering the season, we offered up a wide array of content to get you ready for your fantasy drafts. Now that the season is underway, we’ll be bringing you a little bit of everything week in and week out. We start with waiver wire content, and from there move on to position rankings, start/sit advice, and injury updates.

Each week, we’ll have a fairly regular schedule of fantasy content. Monday and Tuesday will bring waiver wire advice so you can find those diamonds in the rough to add critical roster depth. Tuesday and Wednesday will bring position rankings for standard and PPR leagues. Thursday will bring Thursday Night Football roster advice. Friday will bring start/sit advice across each position. And then Sunday will bring individual player start/sit advice and injury updates to make those last-minute lineup decisions. Finally, we’ll have DFS advice throughout the week to prep you for Thursday, Sunday, and Monday.
