For the first time since Week 4, every NFL team had a game scheduled this week and some players put huge scores this week in fantasy football. Some of these were expected, like Tua Tagovailoa and Tyreek Hill, while others no one saw coming, like Will Levis and DeAndre Hopkins.

With that in mind, these are some of the top takeaways for fantasy football in Week 8.

Will Levis should be the starter for the remainder of the season

Entering Sunday's game, the Tennessee Titans knew they would not have Ryan Tannehill for this game due to an ankle injury and ruled him out on Friday. Head coach Mike Vrabel had said that the team would be looking to give both Will Levis and Malik Willis a chance to play against the Atlanta Falcons.

However, that didn't really play out that way as Levis came out and played excellent football to the point that it was almost impossible to take him out. He finished the game completing 19 fo 29 passes for 238 yards and four touchdowns.

Will Levis is probably going to be a popular waiver wire target but it might be a few more weeks before he can be started in fantasy football with any kind of confidence. However, it would be very surprising if Will Levis is not the starter for the remainder of the season as the Titans need to see if he can be the long-term answer at quarterback.
