Last week was a very good one for my fantasy studs as Matt Schaub, Mewelde Moore and Bernard Berrian all had big games. That keeps the streak of good weeks alive and hopefully it will continue this week. Here are my week 8 fantasy studs.
QB: Trent Edwards vs Dolphins: Edwards has been one of the league’s biggest surprises this year and should have another big game against a poor Dolphins pass defense. Expect around 240 yards and 2 touchdowns.
RB: Thomas Jones vs Chiefs: Jones has already tripled his touchdown total from a year ago and should continue to pile on the numbers against a Chiefs rush defense that allowed 300 yards rushing last week to the Titans. Expect around 140 total yards and 2 touchdowns.
WR: Braylon Edwards vs Jaguars: Aside from one game, Edwards hasn’t really done much this season. That can all change against the Jaguars though who have had a very hard time covering the pass. Expect around 90 yards and a touchdown.
TE: Owen Daniels vs Bengals: Daniels has very quietly been one of the best fantasy tight ends this year. He could have another big day against a Bengals defense that has struggled this year. Expect around 60 yards and a touchdown.
K: Josh Scobee vs Browns: The Jaguars offense has struggled getting in the end zone this year and the Browns have a very underrated defense. With that being said, Scobee should get plenty of field goal opportunities. Expect around 3 field goals and 2 extra points.
DEF: 49ers vs Seahawks: When you are playing a team starting Seneca Wallace at quarterback, you know you are in for a big game on defense. Expect around 3 sacks and 2 interceptions.
Star to sit: Michael Turner vs Eagles: Turner has been excellent so far this season but he could be in for a rough game against the Eagles. The Eagles will be blitzing Matt Ryan like crazy and will probably put 8 in the box forcing Ryan to beat them. Turner could have a decent day, but don’t expect his usual numbers.
