Fantasy football advice: Sneaky plays for Week 8

Another long-shot play in Week Eight, Damion Ratley has been an under-the-radar player that the Browns coaching staff has been impressed with. His playing time has increased over the past two weeks and so has his production, to the tune of nine catches for 105 yards. This week, he faces a Steelers defense that is among the league’s worst in points allowed to receivers (30.62 Fantasy PPG). With the expectation that the Browns will be trailing for most of this game, look for Ratley to be a key contributor during garbage time. I expect for Ratley to give you a five-catch, 85-yard performance this week along with a potential score. If you are in a pinch with your season-long team and need a spark, Ratley will be worth a look as a Flex player. In DFS, he is another cheap, sneaky option that you can use to build a star-studded roster elsewhere.
