PFM Fantasy Football Start ‘Em and Sit ‘Em For Week 8

Updated: October 24, 2013


  • ELI MANNING, QB GIANTS: After not throwing any INT’s last week against the Vikings, Manning will pick up right where he left off by not throwing any to the Vikings again this week. The Eagles, on the other hand, will probably pick him off four or five times. FORECAST: SIT
  • MAURICE JONES-DREW, RB JAGUARS: The aging superstar will prove there’s still plenty of life left in his legs by jogging briskly back to the huddle after each two yard gain. FORECAST: SIT 
  • LARRY FITZGERALD, WR CARDINALS: Fitzgerald and QB Carson Palmer have really developed a nice chemistry this season, in that they both hang their heads in perfect unison after every incompletion. FORECAST: SIT


  • BRANDON PETTIGREW, TE LIONS: The double and triple teams drawn by Calvin Johnson will leave Pettigrew in single coverage, which will give him a less obstructed viewpoint from which to observe Calvin Johnson beating double and triple teams to score his touchdowns. FORECAST: SIT
  • DREW BREES, QB SAINTS: Here’s an alarming statistic: the Buffalo Bills defense, Brees’ opponent this Sunday, has not given up a single passing TD to a Saints QB all season. FORECAST: SIT
  • LeSEAN McCOY, RB EAGLES: The NFL’s leading rusher should be able to exploit a Giants defense completely focused on stopping the run, since the Giants are usually pretty bad at doing things they’re focused on. FORECAST: START
  • ANTONIO BROWN, WR STEELERS: The Pittsburgh WR once got a speeding ticket while driving through Oakland, so Sunday’s matchup against the Raiders will be a revenge game of sorts. FORECAST: START


  • JORDAN CAMERON, TE BROWNS: The league’s newest star at TE uses his wide frame and long arms to catch a variety of passes, so he’s really going to miss the wildly inaccurate throws of benched QB Brandon Weeden. FORECAST: SIT
  • CHRISTIAN PONDER, QB VIKINGS: Returning to the starter’s role for Minnesota, Ponder will prove his doubters wrong this week. Specifically, the ones who doubt that he’s capable of throwing five interceptions in one game. FORECAST: SIT
  • TRENT RICHARDSON, RB COLTS: The disappointing Richardson is on a bye this weekend, so look for him to gain about 25 yards less than he normally would. FORECAST: SIT
  • JARED COOK, TE RAMS: In Monday’s game against Seattle, Cook will find the end zone at least four times, simply by scanning the field and looking for Seahawks players holding a football and celebrating. FORECAST: SIT
