Week 8 Fantasy Football Roundup | Sharapova's Thigh

Sleepers

QB:

Joe Flacco- Craptastic against the Jaguars last week, but he'll rebound at home against a craptastic Cardinals secondary.

Matt Hasselbeck- Colts have allowed an NFL-high 14 passing touchdowns.

RB:

Knowshon Moreno- As much as so many of you out there want the Broncos to let Tebow loose, I'm not sold that's going to happen yet. I think Moreno gets 15+ touches with McGahee out.

Roy Helu- Tim Hightower is done for the year, and any #2 back in a Mike Shanahan system worth keeping a close eye on. The rookie out of Nebraska gets a Bills defense that is allowing 5.2 yards per carry on the ground, and was by far the worst run defense in the NFL last year.

WR:

Antonio Brown- 1. Hines Ward is out. 2. Brown had 7 catches for 102 yards last week. 3. The Patriots' pass defense is ranked last in the NFL.

Nate Washington- If I think Hasselbeck is going to have a big week, of course I think his #1 wide receiver will.

TE:

Greg Olsen- Cam Newton should go off against a depleted Vikings secondary. Olsen should be good for five+ catches and maybe a score.

Jared Cook- Another Hasselbeck target.

D/ST:

Buffalo Bills- Facing John Beck and a Redskins offense that is now without Tim Hightower, Santana Moss, and Chris Cooley.

Cincinnati Bengals-Any defense is a very good defense against the Seahawks.

Shit

QB:

Philip Rivers- Rivers has not been like himself lately, and he has a tough situation going Monday night against a rejuvenated Chiefs team, in what will be a rowdy Arrowhead Stadium.

Kevin Kolb- A brutal matchup in Baltimore.

RB:

Maurice Morris- He seems appealing as the "starting running back" with Jahvid Best out, but I think Keiland Williams might even be the better Lions back to have this week in fantasy. Whatever the case, the Broncos are allowing under 4 yards per carry.

Montario Hardesty- Goes up against the #2 run defense in football on the road, and averaging just 3.3 yards per carry.

WR:

Brandon Lloyd- He'll be valuable down the stretch, but I don't trust any Rams receivers with A.J. Feeley throwing their way. Wait until Bradford returns.

Sidney Rice- Just three fantasy points in his last two games, and Tarvaris Jackson dealing with a chest injury.

TE:

Brandon Pettigrew- The Broncos are allowing just 4.7 fantasy points per game to tight ends.

Dallas Clark-You might even want to cut him if you have another good tight end on the roster. He's never going to be the Dallas Clark you're used to seeing until Peyton is back, so next year.

D/ST:

Pittsburgh Steelers-Not a good start against the Patriots.

Washington Redskins- I like Fred Jackson to have a huge week against this run defense.
