With Week 8 of NFL action concluding, it is once again time to look at the weekly fantasy stars who were mostly unowned.

In order to be eligible for inclusion, the player must have been owned in less than 25 percent of ESPN fantasy football leagues. Every week, there will be one quarterback, two running backs, two wide receivers, and one tight end highlighted.


QB - Phillip Rivers, Colts (262 passing yards, 3 passing touchdowns, -2 rushing yards)

For his second consecutive game (Colts had a bye in Week 7), Rivers is the quarterback on this list. It’s the first time he’s had back-to-back games with at least three passing scores since the first two weeks of the 2018 season while with the Chargers.


RB - DeeJay Dallas, Seahawks (41 rushing yards, 1 rushing touchdown, 5 receptions, 17 receiving yards, 1 receiving touchdown)

Down their top two running backs (Chris Carson and Carlos Hyde), Dallas stepped to the forefront for Seattle. He had 18 carries in Week 8 after totaling just two in the Seahawks’ first two carries, and he scored his first two career touchdowns.
