We are at the midway point of the NFL season, with a better understanding of which direction each NFL team is heading into. The trade deadline is approaching, with teams being active already and numerous rumors being thrown out from the media. This is the time of year for teams to decide what needs to be improved, or if they are feeling good about the guys they currently have.

In the fantasy football world, it could be a potentially similar setup depending on the trade deadline. If you only have one or two wins, then it might just be about playing spoiler at this point. However, if you are going into Week 8 with at least 4 wins or more, then you still have a shot at getting ahead of everyone in your league as the playoffs start to slowly approach.

Week 8 of the NFL started off with the Buffalo Bills and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, where the Bills came out victorious off a failed hail mary attempt by Tampa Bay. Quarterback Josh Allen had himself a day, scoring his second highest amount of points this season with 29.06.

As Week 8 approaches, here are five bold predictions for fantasy football this week.
