The Cincinnati Bengals offense dominated Week 7 of the 2022 fantasy football season, including a pair of 29.5+ PPR point performances from wideouts Ja'Marr Chase and Tyler Boyd, in addition to a QB1 effort from Joe Burrow.

AFC West running backs Austin Ekeler and Josh Jacobs also carried the load, posting 36.7 and 36.5 PPR points, respectively.

Byes are now a factor fantasy managers must consider for the next seven weeks of the season. The Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Chargers are all off in Week 8 and that means the absences of notable fantasy names like Ekeler, Justin Herbert, Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce.

Even prior to Week 7's Monday Night Football contest, fantasy managers can start looking ahead to Week 8 and trying to identify the best players to fill out their starting lineups, especially with some sitting on a bye week. Check out The Duel's fantasy football rankings by position for PPR leagues into Week 8.
