Week 8 NFL Start Em Sit Em

Teams on Bye: Falcons, Bears, Packers, Jets, Raiders, Bucs

QuarterBacks

Start Em-

Eli Manning- Manning is going up against the worst team in the league in the Rams, he should be able to carve up the defense all day in the Meadowlands.

Ryan Fitzpatrick- Fitzpatrick just inked a nice new long-term deal to be the Bills Quarterback of the future, he goes up against the Redskins this week, I think he’ll show why he’s the Qb of the future.

Andy Dalton– Dalton has probably been the 2nd best Quarterback to come out of the draft this year so far behind Cam Newton.  He has surprised everybody with his presence in the pocket, and his accuracy.  Seahawks have a good defense but I think with Benson out, Dalton will be on leaned on a little more.

Ben Roethlisberger- When the Steelers and Patriots go up together, it’s more times than not going to be a shootout.  Last year both Brady and Roethlisberger put up huge numbers when they played each other, I see this game being no different.

Sit Em-

Alex Smith– Smith has been playing good at home lately, especially the game against the Bucs.  Joe Haden is healthy for the Browns so that isn’t a good matchup for top receiver Crabtree, I expect the 49ers to lean on Gore in this game, while Smith will only throw for 1 TD.

Tim Tebow-  He keeps on showing to me why he isn’t a good QB at all, many people thinks he’s so great because of the comeback win last week against the Dolphins.  He only threw for over 100 yards, but ran for 50, this week against the Lions he should get a wake up call to why he isn’t a Quarterback in the NFL.

Christian Ponder- If your thinking about starting Ponder this week after his showing last week against the Packers, I wouldn’t expect the same numbers in this one.  The Vikes are probably going to give a heavy dose of AP to the Panthers in Carolina.

Running Backs

Start Em-

Chris Johnson- If this isn’t the week that CJ2k breaks out, then I don’t know what week it will be.  If he cannot have a great day against the terrible Colts Defense I have no hope for him for the rest of the season.

Frank Gore- Gore is going to have a huge day against the Browns this week, he has been playing lights out lately after getting off to a slow start, I expect 125+ in this one.

Jackie Battle- I like Battle again this week, as he seems to be the featured back for the Chiefs up against a weak run D in the Chargers.  I expect this game to be high scoring through out and Battle to get his share of touches and yards.

Pierre Thomas- The Saints are going to do what they did last week, this week against the Rams.  With Mark Ingram out, Sproles and Thomas’s carries and touches should rise even more.  Both of them should easily be in double digits at the end of this game.

Sit Em

Knowshon Moreno- McGahee is going to be out this week, so Moreno finally has a shot to get his job back for once.  Lance Ball is behind him though, where John Fox does like him.  Don’t expect too much out of Moreno here against a good Lions Defense.

DeAngelo Williams- Stewart has been getting more and more goal line carries and more touches than DeAngelo Williams.  The Vikes have been up and down this year on Defense, I expect Stew to find the end zone over Williams.

Montario Hardesty- If Hillis can’t go on Sunday, Hardesty would be in the place for him.  I wouldn’t expect much from either if Hillis was starting anyways, the 49ers have been great when it comes to stopping the run.

Wide Receivers

Start Em-

Anquan Boldin- Boldin has been on a roll lately, and you have to ride him while he is hot.  Until then keep him In your lineups.

Antonio Brown- Brown has been getting his share of targets, getting close to Mike Wallace for them.  I expect Brown to have a big game in a shootout with a suspect Patriots Defense.

Mario Manningham- Manningham is due for a good game, especially against the Dolphins this week.  I expect him to get near 100 yards receiving and a TD.

Sit Em-

Brandon Lloyd- The thing is the Rams will be throwing a lot since they will be down big against the Saints early this week.  Bradford is ruled out already with Feeley slated to get the start, Sit Lloyd.

Michael Jenkins- Don’t let last weeks game fool you, Jenkins isn’t that great of a receiver for him to be in your lineups this week against the Panthers.

Reggie Wayne- There is nothing Wayne owners can do but sit him now until a miracle of Peyton Manning coming back happens.  Owners knew had a risk coming into the season, and are paying for the repercussions.
