Week 8 is upon us and sadly I feel this NFL season is going way to fast. But I am here with my Must Start/ Must Sit guys for week 8.
Alex Green v.s JAX – Other than last week against the Raiders, The Jaguars have given up 120+ yards a game over the 1st 6 weeks of the season. Green hasn’t been very impressive in his 1st two starts. But this week I feel with a nice matchup and factor in GB will probably playing with a lead. Green should exceed 20+ touches and reach the end zone this week.
Chris Givens v.s NE – As we all know the NE defense is just not that good defending the pass. Givens is 3rd in the NFL in down the field targets. Take all that into consideration and we have a potential Fantasy Stud. I really like him this week and you should as well.
Eric Decker v.s NO – Going against the worst Pass Defense in Football. I think the Saints are really going to focus on Thomas this week. Should lead the way for Decker to have a field day against the Saints defense.
Matthew Stafford v.s SEA – Stafford not having a terrible season, just not having the season we thought he would have. But this week facing a tough defense that has faced some tough competition. Only allowed one QB 20+ fantasy points this year(Brady). I like other guys like Rivers, Bradford or Vick this week over Stafford.
Michael Turner v.s PHI – Eagles run defense has been decent this year. Turner just doesn’t have the talent he once had. I look for this to be a shootout between these two teams. Taking Turner out of the game completely.
Felix Jones v.s NYG – He wasn’t that impressive in his 1st start of the year. The Giants were shredded on the ground last week. Mostly thanks to RGIII opening up the run game though. This guy somehow always gets carries taken away while being on the sideline injured for a play or two. So many better options this week than this guy.
Those are my week 8 start/sits, any Fantasy Football Questions you can ask on here or on twitter. (@rickygangster) I’ll answer any and all questions you send leading up to game time.
