Welcome to the latest edition of the greatest, well, technically the worst fantasy football lineup imaginable from Week 8. Each week's bum-studded lineup is decided by balancing fantasy player ADP rankings, scoring projections and their respective scoring production from that week, based on FanDuel standard scoring.


Week 8 Fantasy Fails Lineup: 

Total = 25.8 Points


What a difference a few weeks can make for someone like New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees. One week you're setting the NFL record for the career passing yards, and then you're the Week 8 poster boy for the latest Fantasy Fails Lineup.


Sorry Drew, but our Fantasy Fails rosters have an incredible case of amnesia when it comes to prior performance.


Week 8's roster of shame also produced record numbers on both ends of the scoring spectrum with Brees' 7.8 points, the most by any quarterback that's made the cut to date, while the Baltimore Ravens Defense/Special Teams weighed in with a record-low of minus-4 points -- the worst output across all positions this season. 

This week's roster also features four repeat offenders from previous Fantasy Fails rosters -- Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin, San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida, Minnesota Vikings kicker Dan Bailey and Jacksonville Jaguars RB Carlos Hyde.


Hyde is also making Fantasy Fails history this week as the first player to appear on the weekly roster as a member of two different teams. 

Green Bay Packers RB Ty Montgomery likely wasn't an RB1 or RB2 that many fantasy owners were banking on this week, but a negative total as a back, combined with a game-losing fumble against the Los Angeles Rams simply beckons for a spot on the Week 8 Fantasy Fails Lineup.
