Last week was another solid week as I went 9-5. I was right on with my pick of the Bills getting a big win at home over the Ravens. The Ravens have really struggled and Trent Edwards keeps the Bills in every game. My miss was the Texans beating the Titans in a low scoring affair. Not only did I pick the wrong team but the game was a shootout. But honestly, who would have thought we would be talking about Sage Rosenfels having a very good performance? It was also a very good week for my fantasy studs as Jeff Garcia,Wilis McGahee,Wes Welker and the Redskins defense all had big days. Here are my week 8 picks and my fantasy studs.
Game of the weak:Bills vs Jets: Even if the Jets are losing big, fans might want to stay past halftime so they can see the teams quarterback for the next 6 years, Kellen Clemens.
Game of the week: Lions vs Bears: Who would have thought that the Lions would be the one with the winning record? Well maybe Jon Kitna but nobody else. Don’t be surprised if this game turns into a shootout.
Last week: 9-5
Lions 31 Bears 28
Raiders 13 Titans 23
Browns 35 Rams 17
Eagles 21 Vikings 24
Giants 28 Dolphins 14
Steelers 35 Bengals 31
Colts 28 Panthers 16
Bills 28 Jets 14
Jaguars 13 Bucs 17
Texans 14 Chargers 35
Saints 31 49ers 17
Redskins 21 Patriots 42
Packers 24 Broncos 27
QB: Derek Anderson vs Rams: I was’t buying into Anderson after his 5 touchdown performance against the Bengals but he is for real. Anderson has been consistent all year and expect no different with 270 yards and 3 touchdowns.
RB: Marshawn Lynch vs Jets: Lynch has been a very consistent fantasy back and expect no different against a terrible Jets run defense. Expect around 110 yards and a touchdown.
WR: Hines Ward vs Bengals: Ward looks like he is finally healthy and the Bengals pass defense can’t stop anyone. Expect around 120 yards and a touchdown.
TE: Desmond Clark vs Lions: The Lions have had a hard time stopping the pass and Clark is a huge target in the offense. Expect around 70 yards and a touchdown.
K: Jeff Reed vs Bengals: This will be a high scoring affair and Reed should get lots of looks. Expect around low double digits from him this week.
Def: Giants vs Dolphins: Don’t worry that they are playing in London. The 6 hour flight will give them more problems than the Dolphins will. Expect around 5 sacks and 3 interceptions.
