Week 8 of the 2022 fantasy football season saw a few notable performances, but none bigger than the TD-hungry efforts from running backs Christian McCaffrey and Alvin Kamara.

McCaffrey posted an incredible 3-TD performance against the Los Angeles Rams, notching one rushing score, one receiving score, and passing for his third score of the day. Kamara turned in his own hat trick against the Las Vegas Raiders and both talented running backs exceeded 40 PPR points for their efforts.

Byes continue to be a major factor for fantasy managers in Week 9, as six teams will not be playing. That means the absence of notable fantasy names like McCaffrey, Nick Chubb, Tony Pollard, Saquon Barkley and Najee Harris.

Even prior to Week 8's Monday Night Football contest, fantasy managers can start looking ahead to Week 9 and try to identify the best players to fill out their starting lineups. Check out The Duel's fantasy football rankings by position for PPR leagues into Week 9.
