The Holy Grail – Week 8 WRs

Teams on bye week: Falcons, Bears, Packers, Raiders, Jets, Buccaneers

Steve Smith, American football wide receiver f...

Gotta be happy for the guy!

MUST START

1 Calvin Johnson vs Den – Champ wouldn’t be able to cover him in his prime let alone past it.

2 Nicks vs Mia – I take chances in my WR ranks  and he gets the nod because he is due for a huge game soon. Miami is the right matchup for it to happen.

3 Wallace vs NE – You have to think with the extra week to prep for the Steelers that Belichek will make it his goal to take Wallace out of the game. Regardless , he doesn’t have the personnel to execute his defensive gameplans.

4 Welker vs Pit – He is on fire this year , breaking yardage records and dominating the PPR landscape. Pit may contain him a bit , but you never sit him regardless.

5 Steve Smith vs Wash – Newton has really brought life back into a career that was floundering. You can’t help but feel happy for him.

6 Colston vs Stl – He is dominating everyone right now , and the Rams will be no different.

7 Vjax vs KC – Say what you want , but I am gonna keep rolling him out there; especially against a team as beatable for big plays as Kansas City.

8 Bowe vs SD – Same game as the above , worse QB but he still plays as a high end WR1 in almost any matchup.

9 Dez Bryant vs Phi – He has already surpassed Miles Austin as Romo’s most trusted wideout. He looks for him between the 20’s and in the Redzone. At his age and with his skill set he could dominate the position in the years to come.

10 Steve Johnson vs Wash – Had a week off and should come back ready to shine. He is so hard to cover and is all over the field. Fitz loves him and so do I.

The Holy Grail – Week 8 QBs

Alex Smith running onto the field before a 200...

Smith won't pull a Whitehurst this weekend!

Teams on bye week: Falcons, Bears, Packers, Raiders, Jets, Buccaneers

MUST START

1 Brees  vs STL- Much like Graham , there is no other choice for the top spot this week. The stats plus the matchup make this easy.

2 Vick vs Dal – The bye week gave him time to get his legs fresh and recover from the beatings he has been taking. Dallas swarms to the ball , but Vick scores 20 in a bad game.

3 Cam vs Min – What a stud this guy turned out to be as he continues to augment his passing stats with great rushing stats.

4 Brady vs Pit – Would be higher if not for the electric nature of the position this year. Cam, Vick , Brees all have their own claims to the top spot each week and Brady has the misfortune of playing against Pitt.

5 Rivers vs KC – I am loading up on him in Salary Cap games. He is still an elite QB and KC is the perfect matchup for him to show it.

6 Eli vs Mia – Nicks will explode this week and the ‘Fins will have no answer for Bradshaw or Jacobs. Giants will put up a big number.

7 Ben Roethlisberger vs NE – Will have plenty of chances to put up big TD numbers against this horrible defense.

8 Stafford vs Den – Slips a bit in my rankings because of the injury questions – still a must start if healthy b/c of the offense and the upside.
